Auto belay devices are a new safety innovation that is quickly becoming the standard for challenge courses and ropes courses. Auto belay devices use a variety of sensors to monitor the user's safety and automatically shut off the belay system if there is a fall. This provides an added layer of safety for participants, and it can help to reduce the risk of serious injuries.
History of Auto Belay Devices
The first auto belay devices were developed in the early 2000s. These early devices were bulky and expensive, and they were not widely adopted by the challenge course and ropes course industry. However, in recent years, there has been a significant improvement in the technology and design of auto belay devices. As a result, they are now more affordable, more compact, and easier to use. As a result, they are now being adopted by more and more challenge courses and ropes courses.
