The Testing Zone is a page where media on all testing done, videos, photos, graphs, details and more is made available to all.
The testing platform was built to be able to perform precise pull and break tests (up to 7tons) on all slackline gear. Any tests over 7tons are done in another facility but in most applications 7tons is sufficient for slackline gear tests.
Types of tests:
Break tests – Pull until it breaks
Slippage tests – Pull until slippage or breakage occurs in webbing anchors, brakes and knots
Stretch tests – testing the different stretch properties of webbings and ropes
Yield tests – Pulling until metal starts to deform
Age tests – Break tests on older webbings, ropes and hardgear
Field testing – Real-life testing for efficiency, handling and general usage
