Vendor Tip: Annual Equipment Inspection & Re-certification

Posted by Keren Warner on

Throughout aerial adventure parks, zip line tours, and other high adventure courses there are various life safety devices: SRLs, auto-belay units, and static-belay lanyards like the Bornack SSB, etc. Most require annual re-certification from their vendor or authorized service centers. As the end of the climbing season approaches start planning to send these units to the appropriate service centers.  
During planning:
  • Contact vendors/service centers to schedule re-certification
  • Obtain and fill-out service forms including return address
    • Note odd behavior of a unit on the form
  • Package items in sturdy and cushioned boxes
    • Packing peanuts are not recommended as they jam inside items
  • Ship items via a trackable service like UPS or FedEx

Ropes Park Equipment is proud to be an authorized service center for

  • Bornack, including FallStop SRLs, SSBs and FG9s
  • Mark Save-A-Life products including the Hawk and Elephant
  • ISC, including the ALF Climb Assist Pulley
  • RPE Self Retracting Lanyards
