Safety & Equipment
HIGH STANDARDS FOR SAFETY
An exceptional safety record and adherence to the ever-changing amusement industry standards separates Ropes Courses, Inc. (RCI) from other ropes course manufacturers. All RCI products are individually engineered and tailored to meet ASTM amusement standards. RCI also complies with location-based regulations including EN 1090 standards set forth by ADIPS (United Kingdom) and TUV (Germany) amusement industry standards. CE certified safety equipment is attainable for European customers to comply with additional standards when appropriate. The slingline slider assembly is no exception and meets all OSHA and ANSI breaking strength requirements to guarantee operator and participant safety as well.
PARTICIPANT SAFETY SYSTEM
Before each participant ventures onto a Sky Trail® or Sky Tykes® ropes course, they are properly outfitted with a full body harness and a redundant slingline. This redundant slingline is secured into the course’s continuous belay overhead tracking system. At the ground level, a certified operator appropriately connects and disconnects participants into the safety system to further optimize the safety of participants. The overhead tracking system grants participants the ability to move about the course in any direction they so choose while the safety system allows participants to self-rescue, step back on the element and continue on their adventure.
Clip ‘n Climb® utilizes the same harnesses as the Sky Trail® line of products for the connection to Head Rush TRUBLUE auto belays. These auto belays have been an industry proven leader in safety. Depending on the desires of the owner, TRUEblue can be outfitted with a selection of connectors that each have their own unique system for reducing oversight while maintaining a high level of safety.
RCI wants to ensure each customer is able to enjoy the highest quality products and services so that all attractions can be operated successfully. The acquisition of new or replacement equipment can occur as it is necessary or per request of the client.
To provide superior service and ease for the client, new slingline assemblies, harnesses, track block-offs and even more is available to be purchased directly from RCI. When old elements have become worn and need replacement, new elements can be obtained when needed with the assistance of an aftermarket sales staff person. Our elements never lack innovation, excitement or variety which in turn allow the client to pick from a bounty of viable choices.
RCI also has items such as split pucks, double cable sleeves, sheaves, collars and more available for purchase if desired. As for the entirety of sling lines, all have replacement parts that can be bought as they sustain wear and tear.
For equipment inquiries about quotes, orders or returns please feel free to contact our aftermarket sales department by phone or email. An aftermarket sales person will respond to your inquiry within 48 hours.
All orders are processed in order of receipt and shipped as soon as they are completed. An element measurement form must be completed when ordering new elements.
RETURNING DEFECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Clients may return both warranty and non-warranty items. A 1-year warranty is offered on all hardware for defects or abnormal wear. If you have questions regarding a return, please contact the aftermarket sales department with pictures, and they will advise. When a product is ready to be returned a RCI representative will provide you with an RMA number for you to ship the item to us. Then the repaired equipment or replacement item will be shipped back to you. Please note that if the return is not a warranty return, time, materials, and/or shipping will be charged.
Please fill out the damaged equipment tag information and attach it to the item that is being returned to RCI.
