Zip Line Design Tools

Hubbard Merrell is serious about designing zip lines, so we created Zip Design Tools to help us do that!
Our goal is to simplify the design process for your zip line system. The Zip Design Tool was created to be a revolutionary tool that allows us to easily and quickly simulate and optimize your zip line system.
Features & Benefits:

•  Test a range of parameters during the design process

•  Calculate loaded and unloaded profile of the zip line cable

•  Estimate tension in the loaded cable

•  Determine rider speed along the zip line

•  Predict rider speed when they hit the brake

•  Evaluate the effects of wind on rider speed

•  Assess the impact of different trolleys on rider speed

•  Troubleshoot a problem with an existing zip line

The End Result:

•  You gain early insight into how your zip line system may
perform before you make any large investments. Hubbard
Merrell will provide you with a preliminary concept report of
your zip line system.

•  Save time and design costs

•  Minimize or eliminate zip line construction delays and rework
