Named the Single Redundant Slingline (SRS), the latest innovation in harness safety technology was recently introduced by Ropes Courses, Inc. (RCI). The SRS meets all U.S. safety requirements and has an approximate five-year service life, two years longer than the existing devices.
Developed by RCI’s Compliance Manager Matthew Kiella, the new single slingline replaces the older double version while offering the same security with a single line made possible with dual connection points. The SRS is attached to a harness that each participant wears when climbing on any of the Sky Trail® or Sky Tykes® ropes courses and Clip ‘n Climb® climbing challenges.
“I think our clients are going to be pleasantly surprised by the quality and durability that this new slingline delivers,” explained Kiella. “For retrofits, operators will be provided with fully machine-made aluminum Sky Rail™ slider assemblies that come with or without wheels to ensure compatibility and the right fit with all Sky Trail® models around the U.S. and the world,” he continued.
