Safety System

The faszinatour Smart-Belay®:

Guarantees absolute safety
faszinatour has been setting standards in outdoor safety for many years. We are consistently using our wealth of experience in construction and operation of forest rope courses and high rope courses to improve security standards through further research and development. We have succeeded in developing an innovative lanyard device that revolutionizes personal safety when working at heights: The faszinatour Smart-Belay®.

Safety problems in the forest rope courses? You can tick them off!
Operators of high rope courses and adventure parks know this problem: With many currently existing safety systems, it is often the case that participants accidentally unclip themselves completely from the safety cable - Risk of falling!
This safety loophole is eliminated through the faszinatour Smart Belay® a system with two pulley carabiners that can communicate with each other. If one of the carabiners is open, the second carabiner recognises this and blocks the opening mechanism until the first carabiner is re-clipped into the safety cable. Only then can the second carabiner be unclipped from the safety cable. Accidentally unclipping both carabiners at the same time is therefore not possible.

The advantage: improved safety for participants and a higher standard of risk management for operators.

The advantages
Improved safety
- Prevents completely unclipping
- Ease of use
- Easy overtaking
- Problem-free evacuation

More flexibility
- Usable in forest adventure parks, high rope courses, etc.
- Combinable with conventional safety systems: can gradually be upgraded
- Longer shelf life and less wear and tear
- Depending on the design of a ropes course/operational concept
   labour can be saved.
