HOW TO BUILD ZIP LINE BY SPORTS ACADEMY OF MOUNTAINEERING {SAM ZIPLINE}

SAFE & SUSTAINABLE ZIP LINES

Our all the zip lines & rope course that we build are built by the European Safety Standard EN 15567:2007 & American National Safety Standard {We are also member of PRCA, USA Approved by ANSI, American National Standards Institute} and are tested and certified before completion. Active Constructions builds high quality ziplines with a strong presentation. By using different materials and finishing techniques we are able to give every zipline the desired look, whether it’s a natural ‘look & feel’, an industrial setting or complete theme creation.

SITE SELECTION

Prior to installing your zip line an appropriate location must be selected. You will need a clear runway for your zip line with a sturdy anchor on both ends, and enough slope in the cable to propel your participants from one end to the other. Although there are relatively few locations where a zip line cannot be installed, some locations will provide for a safer and more enjoyable ride than others.

ZIP LINE DESIGNS

CENTER DISMOUNT - The center dismount is hung with a considerable belly or drape in the cable. The rider launches and speeds down to the center then starts up the other side. The rider slows to a stop before reaching the end of the cable and slides back down to the low point (not always the center) where they are dismounted using a ladder or removable platform. Center dismount zips can be as long as 5,000 feet without specialized equipment. The weight of the rider, trolley type, and wind speed are not significant factors for center dismount zips.

WALK-UP LANDING – Zip Lines or Walk-up landing Zips are used for most commercial canopy tours and zip line tours where riders go from one end to the other and land on a platform or ground near the very end of the zip line cable. The weight of the rider, wind speed, and type of pulley/trolley used will affect the speed and the landing for each rider. The longer the cable, the more unpredictable the landing speed. A variety of new braking systems have really improved safety and allowed for faster rides and more predictable landing speeds.
 
TOWER to TOWER – These designs are gaining popularity mostly with amusement parks,  water parks and other closed venues.  Typically these are less than 800′ zip lines and will have multiple cables going back and forth. Pre-engineered steel tower designs are available. These zip line towers are usually built with stair cases to easily accommodate a variety of ages and abilities.
 
POLE & STEEL MOUNT ZIP LINES – Allow for complete control over length, landing  speed, heights and configuration. MS/Steel Pole zips can be designed to accommodate almost any zip line design need. Zip lines can be designed over canyons, cliffs and open range up to over 5,000 feet.
