! PERMARIG WARNING ! Inspect your webbing now !

2022-09-11T11:14:37+02:00

It came to the community's attention that most weblocks, when tied-off to the point where no more slippage occurs, produce a specific friction pattern on the webbing inside the weblock. The ISA Safety Commission and our Safety Partner Slacktivity have performed tests on these parts and found significant weakening of the webbing to the point where it is no longer safe to highline on. All these webbings had in common that they were installed over a prolonged time (several months) in a intensively used freestyle highline setup. They were installed on the static side with a weblock tie-off. The webbing had [...]

Webbing lifetime and freestyle highline warnings

2022-03-07T17:58:47+01:00

Webbing lifetime and freestyle highline warnings With the popularity of highline freestyle rising in today’s highlining world, permanently rigged lines (or perma-rigs) are becoming the norm rather than the exception. This intensive use and long exposure of the webbing can lead to critical weakening and failure. In these publications, we adress the main factors we are aware of, abrasion and UV degradation. We also give some recommendations on what to do to avoid critical failure, the first of which is always to rig redundantly. We are constantly updating the ISA 41 Highline Webbing standard to be consistent to [...]
