Zip line: The way to fly even higher

Implementation

If you’ve decided to get into the adrenaline business with a Zip line, then you’re probably a businessman who likes to fly high. That is why you must find out all the ways we have thought up for you, so that your circuit can reach even higher technological standards. These ways will allow you to: have a cutting edge Zip line, increase profitability and enhance the experience.

Automation: take away the risk of human error

 

The automation system that we use when creating a Zip line is based on control technology using suitable devices and is regarded as a cutting edge solution. This system offers two major advantages:

  • obtaining maximum efficiency, an aspect that, of course, positively contributes also to the productivity of the Zip line;
  • taking away the risk of human error.

The system includes:

  • the traffic light and Start system, which prevents early departures and eliminates the danger of collisions between participants;
  • sensors that trigger the hydraulic parts of the circuit, all of which automated and controllable.

Furthermore, it lets stations communicate with each other and it indicates the presence of any problems on the line.

With a reduced number of commands it is possible to simplify and speed up repetitive tasks. But that’s not all:  With this system, we can guarantee complete remote support and inform you when to replace components or do maintainance work. Therefore you do not need to worry about anything and you can be sure of a system that always gives 100%, in terms of performance and safety.

Speaking of safety, you should know that this parameter is measured by using third degree SIL (Safety Integrity Level), a method also used by NASA for aerospace equipment.

The traffic light system. The green light for safety!

 

To prevent premature departures or collisions between riders, we employ a traffic light system. The light turns green only when all safety devices are activated.

In the world of Zip lines, ensuring safety is obviously a priority, which is why we propose to install a traffic light system. What’s it for? It manages the various crossings through LED signals and reduces the risk of errors being made due to communication problems. The signals are visible from great distances, that way even the instructor located at the base station is able to read them well.

Rain and snow can’t damage traffic lights because they are coated with a waterproof material.

Hydraulic platform

 

The rider is hooked on at a higher level than the access platform, to avoid accidental collisions. This requires a system for easy uncoupling when the rider arrives. The electro-hydraulic lifting platform works like this: it is located in the floor and rises when activated by a push button to release the rider. Once the operation is complete, the operator can retract it into the floor.

Kit for tensioning cables

 

We make this kit available to operators in order to reduce maintenance costs. For tightening cables we supply easily adjustable hooks and clamps.

On-ride camera and video system. Photograph the fun

 

People like to have pictures and videos of particular experiences such as a flight on a Zip line. With the on-ride camera and video system you can offer your customers the opportunity to purchase emotional and high quality pictures.

The system is not cumbersome and the cameras can be placed anywhere, according to the best position for a snapshot or a film. The professional SLR cameras we install can work in all weather conditions, thanks to special protective covers.

The admin interface is easy to use and, thanks to bracelets with RFID detectors, you can split the photos up for each person. That way, the waiting times are reduced and people are more likely to buy them.

But that’s not all: customers can select the content they want by themselves using (customizable) totem points and pay by credit card or cash.

It is even possible to add data on to the pictures, such as the maximum speed or completion time. The photos can be purchased either in paper or digital format. In the latter case they are acquired through a special application sent directly to their smartphone, so that they can immediately share them on social networks.

Video surveillance. An eye that never closes on your Zip Line

 

Thanks to the video surveillance system you can monitor the circuit 24 hours a day. We install technologically advanced video cameras that offer excellent night vision. By using video surveillance with thermal imaging you also gain the ability to detect people when darkness reduces visibility.

But not only that:  Webcams can also become a promotional tool. How? By using them to transmit live what is happening on your Zip line, letting people preview the experience and check the weather conditions.

The People counter. Keep an eye on the numbers on your Zip line

 

How many people fly on your Zip line everyday? After how many flights does one need to remember to complete certain safety checks? Thanks to the people counter we can monitor the numbers on your Zip line and offer you our full support service: We’ll tell you when it’s time to do maintenance.

Weather station

 

We can equip the platform with a weather station to measure wind speed and monitor all weather alert apparatus.

Connecting stations with the most sophisticated technology

 

Entrusting us, Adrenaline X-Treme Adventures GROUP, with the construction of your Zip line means choosing the most advanced technology, being one of our main strengths. In the context of connecting the site’s stations, for example, we have thought of two solutions. And here they are.

1. Installing fiber optic cables

Fiber optic cables, placed on the signal ropes, allow you to send data and power from one point to another avoiding grueling work.

2. Installing power cables from point to point

By integrating connections on the signal ropes, we can send electricity to every station on the circuit, even in those areas that are hard to reach, where there is electricity.

Photovoltaic installation

 

Platforms can be made totally independent of any electrical supply if fitted with solar panels. Additionally, when not in full sunlight, the structure can be activated by a battery pack which gives 48 hours autonomous use.

Skywalk

 

To make the Zipline experience even more of an adventure, you can have a skywalk installed on the platform.

Laser show

 

We can also install laser lighting: the light beam follows the Zipline cable course from the upper to the lower end, creating a stupendous effect. It’s a fantastic way of publicising the Zipline because the lasers can be seen from a great distance.

Night lights. Non-stop fun

 

Want to increase the productivity of your site? Make the experience even more exciting. Thanks to lighting, you can offer the possibility to fly by night and make your Zip Line an irresistible attraction.

Special effects

 

Other options available: water walls which act as a screen for projecting videos and images, and tunnels to fly through. We strive to make every Zipline a unique experience.
