Smart-Belay® / Intelligent self-belay system

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2008

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2008

The faszinatour Smart-Belay® is an intelligent self-belay system.

The two pulley carabiners communicate with each other using a mechanical system.
If one of the two carabiners is opened, the other one is automatically locked, so it never can happen that both carabiners are opened at the same time. Additionally we have installed a special system, so that one carabiner can only be clicked in the running safety rope.

Most accidents happen because people have opened both self-belays at the same time.
The faszinatour Smart-Belay® helps to avoid those incidents.
