Auto Belay Safety Standards
Our auto belay is the only auto belay device that meets the same safety standards as other climbing gear.
Did you know that auto belays are not governed by the same standards as other climbing industry equipment. In fact, there is no climbing industry standard pertaining to auto belays.
Fall arrest devices in any other industries are required to meet specific safety standards. Why should climbing industry fall arrest devices be any different? We believe that auto belays should meet the same standards for safety as any other fall arrest devices.
Our TRUBLUE auto belays are designed for climbers and engineered for safety.
We engineered our auto belays to meet the following international safety standards:
- American National Standard ANSI/ASSE Z359.4-2007 “Safety Requirements for Assisted-Rescue and Self-Rescue Systems, Subsystems and Components”
- Canadian Standard, CSA Z259.2.3-99 “Descent Control Devices”
- Australian and New Zealand Standard, AS/NZS 1891.3 1997 “Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices – part 3: Fall arrest devices”
- European Union Directive BS EN 341 “Personal protection equipment against falls from a height – Descender devices”
Not only are our auto belays engineered to meet the strictest safety standards of all auto belays, TRUBLUE auto belays have undergone extensive testing by an ISO 17025 certified lab specializing in product safety testing.
Would you trust a harness that didn’t meet safety standards?
You wouldn’t climb with a harness that wasn’t designed for safety. Why take your chances with an auto belay?
