The safety of our guests is close to our hearts! The climbing island offers a very high safety standard. This applies to construction, operation/team and equipment.
Every guest receives a complete and high-quality equipment consisting of a full harness, helmet and belay. Ropes courses with conventional self-securing devices still carry the risk of visitors accidentally disengaging completely from the safety system. We therefore decided to use Edelrid Smart Belay: If one carabiner is open, the other carabiner recognises this and, if used correctly, blocks the opening mechanism until the first carabiner is hooked back onto the safety rope and locked. Only then can the other carabiner be re-hooked if used correctly. Accidental complete unhooking is practically impossible when used properly. The rollers in the carabiner also ensure that the self-belay system is carried with little wear and replace so-called double rollers. The outstanding ergonomics of the Smart Belay also allow children’s hands to operate it easily.
The complete equipment for participants as well as the equipment of our trainers are fully checked and maintained by an expert body at fixed intervals.
Operation & Team
The operation is carried out according to the European standard for high ropes course construction DIN EN 15567–2. Our high ropes course trainers are trained according to the standards of the European High Ropes Course Association (ERCA) and have up-to-date first aid training. In the area of team development and experiential education, we work with experienced staff with years of experience and appropriate qualifications.The complete participant equipment as well as the equipment of our trainers are fully checked and maintained by an expert body at fixed intervals.
The high ropes course was built according to the European standard for ropes course construction DIN EN 15567–1. This standard is an EU directive, but not required by law and therefore by far not implemented in all high ropes courses. In addition, the climbing island Fürstenfeld was tested by TÜV-Thüringen and is subject to its regular monitoring.
