Safedown Auto Belay


Designed from the ground up

The Safedown Auto Belay has been designed from the ground up with the leisure climbing industry in mind.

Comfortable Descent

The Safedown Auto Belay Immediate brake engagement means no uncomfortable free fall. Large brake pad design gives a smooth, familiar descent.

Super Fast Retraction

With retraction speeds of up to 4.5 meters per second, the Safedown will outpace even elite climbers.

Robust Friction Braking System

Using a tried and tested centrifugal braking system that has been utilised by the industrial and leisure height safety markets for in excess of twenty years, combined with newly developed long-life friction surfaces, the Safedown offers a robust and reliable braking system without the dust and frequent change of parts associated with older friction brake designs.

Designed & Built in the UK

Every machined part of the Safedown comes from our manufacturing base in North Wales, and generic components such as bearings are sourced locally, too. The final assembly and testing takes place
in our workshop in North West England.

Lightweight Aluminium Design

The lightweight aluminium housing and drum make the Safedown the lightest auto belay device on the market at under 12kg. It is ideal
for frequent removal and rehanging, such as on mobile climbing walls and high ropes courses. The lightweight design is equally beneficial in climbing centres, where it allows for regular movement of the devices to allow
solo climbers to explore different areas of your centre.
