Webbing slippage warning in Weblocks

2018-08-12T11:17:20+00:00

Webbing slippage warning in Weblocks. We have identified the mechanism responsible for webbing slippage in webbing lockers (weblocks). During a test on a hydraulic cyclic testing machine, we found webbing to move through the weblock with every stretch and release cycle. We observed this micro-slippage of the webbing within the weblock. Read Full Report - Webbing slippage warning in weblocks The webbing was installed in single wrap without a tie-off so we could witness webbing slippage, webbing tailwalk, and a complete failure of the webbing locking mechanism first hand.

New SlackED data platform is online!

2018-03-22T08:12:37+00:00

The SlackEd platform was born out of this necessity. It is a platform that contains all the knowledge and organisational material the ISA creates. At the time of publishing the platform contains all the publications and the available translations into 14 languages, a calendar and event registration form, all SAIR forms to report accidents and incidents, educational materials, the efforts of [...]

Spaceflower – Transalp Waterline Tour #8

2018-03-03T04:01:37+00:00

Transalp Waterline Tour #8 At the heart of the Swiss Alps, Flims hosted international slackliners for the 8th consecutive year. More than 100 slackliners went on the tour to visit beautiful mountain lakes. To add to the stunning scenery at Caumasee (Lake Cauma), this spontaneous and colorful art installation was born. Made from 1000m of slackline webbing and 24 hammocks, it took 3 days to install over the lake. First seen in Sept 2017, this installation is planned to appear again.

No conocíamos a las personas responsables de la organización y cuál era su motivación para organizar una copa mundial. El concepto escrito que nos enviaron fue bien pensado y describió una competición multidisciplinaria que fue más allá de tricklining, por primera vez en una copa mundial, que encaja muy bien con uno de los principios de la ISA - la difusión de la diversidad de la slackline.
