ZIPSTOP, Braking System
The zipSTOP uses a self-regulating magnetic system to brake zipline participants safely and smoothly.
With the ability to brake participants safely at high velocities, the zipSTOP fills a critical need for zip line operators. It enables more flexibility in the ziplines design. Moreover, the zipSTOP automatically reset itself after each ride, so neither staff nor guest involvement is required.
How it works? The braking unit connects to the brake trolley through a pulley system. As the rider trolley meets the brake trolley, the braking unit adjusts automatically to suit the weight and speed of the rider and creates a safe and comfortable deceleration for the rider.
