Zip Wire FAQ's
- Is the Ø8mm zip wire suitable for adults?
- No, the Ø8mm cable is strictly to only be used for children on distances no longer than 20M. Any longer than this then a minimum of Ø10mm must be used.
- What is better a seat or harness?
- If you are travelling at low height and a small descended angle a seat would be the most suitable option. However if you are descending from height then we recommend a Harness & Lanyard.
- Do you have to drill through the tree?
- The kits we supply are completely tree friendly, the cable strops fit around the tree and are held in place due to the tension put on them. We also offer a tree friendly range of securing cables that are coated in a PVC plastic coating meaning that they do not damage the tree when they are tightened.
- I have a slope on my garden is this ideal for a Zip wire?
- Any installation should be carefully considered by the person(s) responsible for the install. As we offer supply only this is not something we are able to advise on, however guidelines indicate that the line must remain a minimum of 2M from the ground at all times.
- I have no trees in my garden what do I do?
- If you do not have any trees then you can have platforms or supports built these will allow you to install a zip line. This would however entail design of a bespoke zip wire frame which unfortunately we cannot offer.
- Why is the Premium option more expensive?
- The Premium option uses a 19x7 rotation- resistant wire rope construction. Due to the lay and make-up of the individual strands of this rope it results in a far smoother, faster and comfortable travel experience.
- What is the longest length for a commercial application?
- The longest length for the domestic zip wire that we offer is 20 Metres. For the Commercial and premium lines we offer lengths of up to 70 Metres as a standard offering, if you have any enquiries for longer zip lines please contact our sales team.
- What guarantee do the zip wire sets have?
- Our Zip Wire kits do not come with a guarantee as factors such as Installation, Environment and usage can influence the life of the zip line.
- What is the minimum recommended age for a zip wire?
- This is down to the responsible adult’s perspective, we would suggest that 8 years old is a good guideline age for safe use however each child can be very different.
- Can I use the Commercial Zip Wire Package in my garden?
- Yes, the commercial zip wire is perfect for use in a garden the difference being that it is more heavy duty, therefore it is perfect if you plan to get a lot of use out of it.
- How long does it take to install a Zip Wire?
- There are a lot of factors that effect this (Rope length, installers knowledge etc) this makes it very hard to give specific timescales.
- Do you offer an installation service?
- No, we do not offer an installation service however we can suggest that you try looking online, contacting a local handyman or a landscape gardener.
- How fast is a Zip Wire?
- There is no way to be specific with the speed of a zip line. Multiple factors such as the angle of descent, the length of the zip line and the weight of the rider can impact this. If you are looking for lower speed then simply install the line at less of an angle, if you want speed then increase the angle slightly.
