PRODUCT

Fly-Line® is a mono-tube (4” dia) suspended from both appropriate trees and poles by wire cables approximately 1000m in length and taking 15 minutes to traverse.
Visitors are safety-strapped into a specially designed seated sling and travel at gentle, controlled speeds of around 6 – 12 km/hr maximum (which is a medium to fast walking pace).

Fly-Line allows people to make their way around an elevated scenic course, while safely suspended in a comfortable seat under a supporting carriage, which thanks to its unique braking system, glides virtually soundlessly on a stainless steel track.
In stark contrast to zip lining, Fly-Line® provides a slow, secure and controlled descent, like a weightless flight through nature. The course provides a range of descents, curves and drops to exhilarate the rider while still being a soft adventure experience under controlled conditions.
Visitors are safety-strapped into a special designed seated sling and travel at gentle, controlled speeds around 6 – 12 km/hr maximum (which is a medium to fast walking pace). Fly-Line™ gives the visitor enough time to enjoy the scenery and be immersed in its peaceful sound.
Fly-Line™ takes the best advantage of the chosen route and is able to weave through trees and above streams, typically 2 – 16 metres above ground. On average, a course is between 300-2000m and can hold up to 200 visitors per hour.
Fly-Line™ is suitable for people of all ages, and can even cater to people with mobility considerations. No safety training, climbing experience or high level of physical activities needed.
Fly-Line™ is certified to the highest European design and operating standards. It is easy to operate and maintain requiring only a small number of staff. In 2014, Fly-Line took out the IAPA (International Adventure Park Association) Award for innovative solutions and excellent design concepts.
The advantage of the Fly-Line™ system is the low requirements for the necessary infrastructure. A small take-off and landing platform made out of wood and a small storage office need to be installed. Also easy to integrate on already developed sites.
Area of application:
  • Panoramic tours in forests, parks, recreational or scenic reserves, gardens or hiking trails
  • As an additional attraction for amusement parks or cableway companies
No earthworks or heavy equipment used during construction and there are no direct screw connections to the trees so they can maintain their natural vitality and growth. No earthworks or heavy equipment used during construction, every Fly-Line™ part is transported into the forest by hand.

FLY-LINE® – CARRIAGE EVO2:
SOUNDLESS GLIDING

The Fly-Line® carriage EVO2 is developed and patented by the company Fly-Line® GmbH Italy, and certified by TÜV. The trolley is designed in such a way that it guarantees a moderate constant speed, regardless of the inclination of the route or the weight of the passenger. The visitor is unable to influence the speed, ensuring maximum safety.

The carriage is restrained by centrifugal forces and glides on a carrier pipe made out of stainless steel and permits a secured and controlled descent not faster than 12km/h. The carriage EVO 2 is equipped with two independent centrifugal brakes approved for Fly-Line® systems. The newly developed roller carriage type Evo 2 can be used in wet or dry conditions.

FACTSHEET:
  • Framework system made of a high-strength aluminium alloy
  • Running wheels made of high-strength polyurethane with stainless ABEC 7 ball bearings
  • Weight-independent connection between Vulcollan counter-pressure rollers
    and support system
  • Two centrifugal brakes provide redundancy and weight-independent breaking and speed regulation and is certified according to DIN EN795
  • Moderate maximum speed up to 12 km/h
  • Patent protected system; EP No.: 143398 14 0008
  • TÜV certified according to RfU VG11 CNB / P / 11.104 (89/686 / EEC)
