The construction of high ropes courses, flying foxes and climbing parks is carried out in accordance with the highest safety standards (Austrian industry standard for constructing and operating ropes courses, ERCA and EN 15567-1 and 2). Not only do we fulfil the ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technologies)/ERCA (European Ropes Course Association) standards, but we even surpass them in several points. The same goes for the DIN and Ö-Norm standards. The safety systems we use are redundant on all challenges, i.e. applied multiple times. Only local types of wood as well as weather- and UV-resistant steel and nylon ropes are used.
A selection of various safety systems, which are continually being developed further together with competent partners, guarantees absolute safety for visitors:
In addition, we work together with a civil/structural engineer who is a specialist in this field, advises us and also issues test certificates.
Before they are admitted to the high ropes course, visitors are briefed on how to use the safety equipment and on technique.
No particular level of physical fitness or experience is required in order to participate. The easy-to-use belay system guarantees all participants perfect safety and maximum fun.
In general, the construction of a forest high ropes course has hardly any affect on the natural surroundings. The construction work is carried out without the use of tractors or heavy machinery. And the operation of a ropes course also does not have any negative impact on the environment. That being said, we are of course aware of the fact that the mere presence of a human being in a natural setting is an intervention in itself, which effects change. We are, however, convinced that many years of operating a ropes course has much less of an impact on nature than agriculture and forestry.
