If you operate a ropes course best practice is to have a regime of inspections in place to ensure the structure remains in a safe and operable condition, in conjunction with regular in-house inspections undertaken by your own staff. An annual external inspection by a Type C inspector is required.
InsideOut has ERCA qualified ropes course inspectors with many years expertise. We hold relevant certification in wire rope inspection, pole inspection, PPE inspection and general ropes course inspection. We test ground anchors, belay anchors and stay wires to ensure their compliance with the standard.

Just visited Haggerston Castle for the first time since our new course was installed - wow, wow and wow again!

We've recently worked with a ropes course at the Bristol Zoo called "Zooropia!". We upgraded the safety system to a continuous Saferoller system enabling clients to be clipped in from the moment they leave the ground until they return to the ground at the end of the course.
This unique course allows you to swing next to the Zoo's most popular inhabitants such as the gibbons, gorillas and lemurs. It was an un-nerving experience being keenly watched by the gorillas as we constructed the course!
After the conversion, the client reported that operartion of the course was smoother, leading to greater turnover.
