CLIMBING WALLS: Clip ‘n Climb launches Belaymate
Climbing walls specialist Clip ‘n Climb has developed a new safety system, which means climbers can require less safety supervision.
BelayMate is a ‘high performance’ connection device for climbers using Auto Belays. It is a tamper proof system which ensures that climbers are connected 100% securely to the Auto Belay line before they commence climbing. A unique sequencing mechanism ensures that either the Harness Connector or the Ground Anchor Connector has to be engaged into the main body at any time. The engagement of one connector automatically unlocks the other connector.
The system eliminates the need for close supervision while at the same time increasing climber safety, which can also lead to savings by reducing the number of staff required in larger climbing centres.
