Cyclic Loading Weblocks #2

2021-07-08T08:13:53+02:00

Second comparative weblock cyclic loading tests We tested different webbing lockers to gain insight into fatigue behaviour of weblocks and evaluate the weblock safety standard ISA:51. The ISA Safety Commission did this extensive work in collaboration with the University of Lucerne, department of Engineering and Architecture. The second set of cyclic loading tests have finished and you can find the results in our publication here! Weblock design and material choice have been the focus of many discussions in the slackline community and these tests can finally shine a little more light onto this topic. It appears that most weblocks are [...]

Webbing slippage warning in Weblocks

2018-08-12T11:17:20+02:00

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. The Solution [...]
