8mm Adventure Zip Wire Kit Package Builder (Adults Only)
[8mmKit]

As a Aerial Runway specialist we sell this Adventure set designed for ADULT USE ONLY and allow you to customise the equipment to your own unique installation.

Rather than offer a single set pack we prefer to talk to our customers and establish their needs and supply the correct equipment to meet those bespoke requirements.

This page allows a selection of 6 different component combinations to make a package.

If this is your first time to build a zip wire we would prefer to talk to you and make sure you understand what you will need for your install. Please call our Customer Service line between the hours listed to get the advice on which are the best components for you.

1. Trolley
The trolley used for the 8mm Adventure set is designed for use by competent persons over 18 years old only. This is due to the trolley having an open/exposed mechanism which is unsuitable for use by children and does not meet the same European Standards as any of our other products which all are normally full enclosed, from the cheapest toy version to 10mm commercial trolley. The advantage this trolley has over any of the safer versions however is that it can be taken of the cable at the end of the ride so is better suited when crossing water etc where it is difficult to return the trolley back up the cable.

2. Trolley Accessory
As the 8mm trolley can only be used by Adults we only supply an Adult strength pendulum seat with chain as a hollow plastic toy seat with rope would not be strong enough.

3. Cable
We supply a 30m, 40m or 50m length of cable. This length will allow a ride length of roughly upto 45m as some cable is needed during installation as it is used to wrap around one end fixing point and then more for the tensioning.

4. Tensioning
To make the installation as easy as possible we would recommend the drum tensioner, however there is a cheaper option which may require additional mechanical help putting initial tension onto the cable. The Drum Tensioner requires a hole to be drilled through the tree/structure at one end of the cable (start or end whichever is easier). The Jaw to Jaw tensioner uses a straddle strap to warp around the tree but will only take up 30cm / 12 inches of slack (only suitable for post installation adjustment during the regular equipment inspections).
You can also add wooden batons to the tree to protect it from the cable biting into it.

5. Brake
As this package uses a pendulum seat you can get away using your own used tyre (free from a garage) brake clamped to the cable which the trolley impacts against a distance far enough away from the end tree/structure and allow the pendulum action to absorb the speed of the user. If you are wanting a fast ride the tyre brake is not recommended and you would need to use a spring brake to slow the user down.

6. End Fixing
On most short DIY installations you can get away with using the cables own hard eye to create a lasso effect around one end of your ride. The tension on the cable then keeps the loop in place, if using this system around a tree then you can thread the cable through a small length heavy duty rubber hose.
For longer distances you can put too much pressure on the eye of the cable which is when you would use the Extended Loop Back method. The alternative but more expensive method is to use the cable holding device which bolts onto your end after it is thread through the tree.
You can also add wooden batons to the tree to protect it from the cable biting into it.

7. Launch End
You can install an inline buffer stopper at the launch end to prevent damage to the trolley hitting your Launch Tree/Structure.

8. Tools
If you choose the drum tensioner option then you will probably want to add hex drill auger bits 600mm ( 2 foot ) to drill through your tree / structure.
We also can supply a 1m mild steel bar that will make it easy to turn the drum, taking up the tension.
