The light concept in zipline design




The OC-falconTM will be individually adapted to your facility and shines with its high factor of customer satisfaction.

It helps to make a site lean and ecologically friendly. The OC-falconTM is specially designed for the use on alpine ziplines and zipline-courses.

The unique concept allows developing long-distance ziplines without a complex braking-area. With the OC-falconTM, elaborate, high-maintenance constructions with huge concrete basements belong to the past.

The OC-falconTM leaves the smallest possible environmental footprint!


No rough braking but gentle speed control

Due to its internal passive braking system the OC-falconTM is able to handle a decline up to 20% - therefore it lends itself especially for mountainous and skiing regions where the ability in handling high differences in altitude within a relatively short distance is required.

The passive braking system can be adjusted by the producer to a great variety of different ziplines and zipline-courses. Due to the possibility of construction with a wire-sag of 10-20%, significantly reduced forces will impact the connection points at the end of the zipline.

Also, a much smoother braking action is provided by the fact that the lap of wire goes upwards in the end. So the OC-falconTM is feathering out and will stop by itself without using any additional devices. This smooth speed reduction also makes it very convenient and comfortable for children and old people.
