Safe­ty

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.

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.

Con­struc­tion

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.
