Are you up to date with your auto belay servicing checks

Summer is just around the corner and with Brexit uncertainty, many more families are choosing stay-cations and taking advantage of the wealth of facilities and activities now available in the UK.

Our unpredictable British weather means that parents are looking for fun, safe indoor activities and for climbing centres, getting your climbing facilities ready for the holiday rush is vital. Often owners are caught out when the realise they need complete a mandatory annual re-certification of their auto belay equipment.

Closing for maintenance while you send away an auto belay for servicing over this busy period could hurt your profits!

Most suppliers demand that their auto belays are sent to their headquarters for servicing. This can mean that;

  • Your leisure facility’s climbing wall is out of action for weeks.
  • You may face the potential loss of your auto-belay during shipping or return (especially where this has to be sent overseas).
  • You have to pay for costly shipment and insurance costs.
