We offer a range of different styles of zip lines:

  • Hi Tension and Hi Speed Zip lines.
  • Traditional Zip lines for education centers.
  • Zip Line Tours.
  • Playground Zip Lines, suitable for unsupervised use.
  • DIY Zip line kits. For home or group use.

When Designing the Zip line, there are a number of important things to consider.

Who will use it?
Will it be used commercially or in a domestic / not for profit environment. This may affect you legally.
The throughput capacity should be considered, particularly if the zip line must make a profit.

  • Refining the access and the dismount methods can improve throughput. EG placing 2 or 3 zip lines parallel to each other can triple throughput with no extra staffing required.
  • Making access more simple, with staircases can also improve throughput dramatically.

A thrilling fast ride must come to an end, and the breaking style should be considered too.
