The zipSTOP and zipSTOP IR (internal reduction) units use a self-regulating eddy current magnetic braking system to brake zip line participants safely and comfortably. With the ability to brake participants safely at high velocities, the zipSTOP fills a critical need for zip line operators.
Key benefits of the zipSTOP zip line brake include:
Eddy current braking technology
The zipSTOP uses the same eddy current braking system found in the TRUBLUE Auto Belay. With this technology, the braking resistance adjusts automatically to suit the weight of the rider, allowing for a smooth rider deceleration.
Variable rider weights and speeds
Allowing for a wide range of weights and velocities, the zipSTOP gives you flexibility in zipline design and operations.
Consistent braking and automatic reset provide you with an increase in zip line throughput.
Low operational cost and risk
This low maintenance system eliminates the needs for rider involvement in braking and significantly reduces staff involvement as well.
The zipSTOP is designed to automatically reset itself after each ride, minimizing the needs for staff involvement.
Low maintenance costs
With minimal part replacement (webbing and bumper) and an annual recertification cost of $425, the zipSTOP has a low cost of ownership.
The zipSTOP can be installed in any outdoor environment and can withstand the elements. The braking system operates consistently in any conditions, eliminating the need to cease operations due to wind, rain or snow.
