Warranty & Certification(s)
The skyTECH Spring Brake is a DOSH APPROVED primary and secondary zipline braking component engineered for high speeds and big impacts. It enables flyers to experience the thrill of the ride while safely arriving at speeds in excess of 80 km/h (50 m/h), to a smooth and secure stop.
It’s comprised of a series of springs with differing PSI compressions. They are held together with spacer blocks and headed with skyTECH Catch Block or Catcher. When skyTECH Rocket, Jet or Turbine Trolleys arrive at the landing platform, they lock into skyTECH Catch Block or Catcher. This engages the skyTECH Spring Brake and/or ZipStop slowing the flyer to an immediate, yet comfortable, stop.
This is a proven primary brake for high speed systems that is cost effective, efficient and reliable – taking approx. 80,000 hits! When used in conjunction with ZipStop, it acts as an inexpensive secondary back up brake rarely getting hit.
