Installation of ZipSTOP is extremely flexible and can be configured easily to suit any zip line application. The ZipSTOP unit works in combination with ZipSTOP brake trolley. The trolley itself is connected back to the brake unit via a simple line reduction system.
The reset position of the trolley determines the beginning of the braking zone and thus remains independent from the platform position and length. An estimated size of the “braking zone” can then calculated via a simple worksheet. The location of this zone can then be tailored to the individual zip line installation, allowing for infinite number of setup possibilities.
Additionally, a line reduction system can be configured to enable tuning of rider comfort and breaking distances. For example; if a design has riders entering the breaking zone below 22mph, an operator may select a basic 1:1 ratio. However if riders are entering the breaking zone at higher speeds or a more gradual deceleration is required, the operator may choose a 2:1 reduction ratio instead.
Please see the Operator Manual for more information.
