Future ad in Adventure Park Insider: Zipline Braking Solutions


Are you ready for the new braking standards from ASTM F2959 and the ACCT? Let us help you. We've sold friction braking trolleys and spring braking systems for over 23 years, and we're back.

Last year a zipline insurance company predicted 10,000 accidents: we at Momentum Engineering know over half of the accidents are braking-related.

Our Zipline Braking Products create a 3:1 safety factor, because we sell Fail-safe Trolleys and Spring Arrays. We stop Zipliners, so you won't have to.

Please check out my Zipline Braking Solutions YouTube Channel. (I developed it this semester in ENGL6480 as I finish my Technical Writing graduate program at Utah Tech University.) Also if you visit my website www.ziplinebrakingsolutions.com doesn't show special prices for zipline builders. And my first YT channel Troy Richardson Accident-Free Braking Systems has almost 100 zipline testing and spring installation videos.

My second YT channelZip Safe with Momentum Engineering has 50+ videos.

We are on our 5th generation fail-safe zipline trolley and 2nd generation spring systems meet or exceed the standards.

We offer an 8-hour training supplement to help ziplines with incident and documentation reporting.

    Our braking system design improved with friction braking trolleys. We also utilize their Barrel/Telescoping springs which have provided an Emergency Brake that stands alone, with no participant resetting requirement.

  • Ken Moore (Robertson Harness)

    "Troy's Friction Braking Trolleys and barrel spring systems are excellent for any zip line. I witnessed that their trolleys could stop 275 lbs. and 35 lbs. in the same location, using the pin placement designed for the zipline's slope. Their braking products will reduce your risks and your zipline's braking risk!"
