Smart belay technology is based on a system of communicating interconnected carabiners. If one of the carabiners is unlocked or has been detached from the main safety line the other carabiner stays locked until its counterpart has been safely attached to the cable again. Unintentionally detaching both carabiners from the lifeline, e.g. during the transition between two climbing parcourses, is therefore impossible.
In conjunction with our climbing park layouts, we offer two smart-belay systems: The award-winning Smart Belay® developed by the German company Edelrid. And the Safe-Link® system designed by the European safety equipment specialist Bornack. Both systems represent the latest technology available on the market.
Apart from granting ultimate climbing safety, smart-belay systems give visitors the opportunity to handle belay and carabiners themselves, therefore providing a genuine and 'authentic' climbing experience. Another advantage of the system is that it can be easily and cost effectively retrofitted to any existing climbing park.
Skywalker is the exclusive dealer for the Edelrid and Bornack systems and has already installed this safety system in various climbing parks all over Europe.
