Spring Brake (EAD)
Spring Brake System: Zipline Spring Brake, secondary brake components (emergency arrest device, EAD) for both high and low speeds with high loads. Tested for speeds up to 100Km / h in a safe and comfortable stop.
Our Stainless steel spring with spacer blocks are easily screwed together and is self-locking, which provides zero maintenance. A well-proven system with low cost. Along with a Zipstop this is the best secondary braking system on the market.
All zipwires have a primary braking system to stop the rider at the end of the line. But beyond this measure, zip lines should also have an emergency or back-up braking solution. An emergency arrest device (EAD) is just what it sounds like – it is the thing that would stop rider in an emergency situation where the primary braking system doesn’t do its job. Read all about EAD devices in our whitepaper.
Note: The number of springs and spacers depends on the landing speed, Ask us and we help you with numbers.
