Designed specifically for the climbing industry, the TRUBLUE unit gives unique benefits over other auto belays including a patented self-regulating braking system enabled by non-contacting magnetic braking technology, resulting from years of research, development and testing.
TRUBLUE believe that auto belay systems should meet the same standards for safety as any other fall arrest devices and have engineered their auto belay systems to meet the following international safety standards:
•European Union Directive BS EN 341 “Personal protection equipment against falls from a height – Descender devices”
•American National Standard ANSI/ASSE Z359.4-2007 “Safety Requirements for
Assisted- Rescue and Self-Rescue Systems, Subsystems and Components”
•Canadian Standard, CSA Z259.2.3-99 “Descent Control Devices”
•Australian and New Zealand Standard, AS/NZS 1891.3 1997 “Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices – part 3: Fall arrest devices”
Not only are TRUBLUE auto belays engineered to meet the strictest safety standards of all auto belays, they have also undergone extensive testing by an ISO 17025 certified lab specialising in product safety testing. The TRUBLUE auto belay is the only auto belay device that meets the same safety standards as other climbing equipment.
•Reliability with no sacrificial wear parts.
•Smooth descent with minimal variation in descent rate of a child and an adult.
•Extensive safety testing.
•No clutch bearing, eliminating a key point of failure present in other auto belay designs.
•Gentle whirring noise alerts those below of descending climber.
•Simple to install and easy to move to accommodate group programming.
•Descent height of 41 feet (12.5 meters) provides the longest range of all modular systems.
•Accommodates a wide range of climber weights from 22 – 330 lbs (10 to 150 kg).
Minimal maintenance requirements and costs
•Webbing based system will not damage walls and is more natural for climbing.
•Reduced webbing wear with unique delivery nozzle and field replaceable webbing kit.
•Lower maintenance and servicing costs (approx £200 – £300 per year)
