Spectrum Sports Int'l is the company that has been behind the auto-belay climbing movement from the very beginning. We pioneered the technology and built the very first hands-free auto belay device for climbers here in Utah in the shadows of the climbing mecca that is the Wasatch Front. Since the '90s we've been safely protecting climbers from falls using our advanced automatic belay device. WE HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE WITH AUTO-BELAYS THAN ANY OTHER COMPANY!
We have 3 auto belay device models available depending on the height of your climbing wall:
Perfect Auto Belay device for climbing walls with heights ranging from 12' - 32' tall.
This Auto Belay device services climbing walls with heights up to 40' tall.
Do you have a HUGE climbing wall? The AB75 is for walls from 40' to 75' tall.
What is an Auto-Belay?
Chances are that you've at least heard about auto-belays which has led you to this web page. “Belaying” is a climbing term that describes the process of taking up slack in a climber’s safety line as they ascend, and then safely lowering the climber when they either fall or wish to descend. This process is managed by a “Belay Partner” in traditional rock climbing. The term “Auto-Belay” is used to describe a device that replaces the “Belay Partner” with a mechanical device.
How does the Auto-Belay work?
The Spectrum Sports Intl auto belay safety system is an air/oil hydraulic apparatus. As a climber ascends, air pressure works upon the device in a manner that collects any slack in the climber’s safety line. When the climber descends, oil flow thru the device is restricted in a manner that safely slows the rate of descent. Four generations of design evolution, 3rd party engineering, and millions of safe cycles worldwide have proven that the Spectrum Sport Intl Auto-Belay device is the safest and most reliable on the market.
Which Auto-Belay is right for me?
When choosing your auto belay system you may want to consider the following criteria:
1. Safety - This is the primary concern for any piece of climbing gear. You can feel comfortable knowing that the Spectrum Sports Auto-Belay has been in use for over 15 years, longer than any other automatic belay device on the market. In that time we have never experienced a design related failure. In addition, our Auto-Belay is the only device to achieve the prestigious TUV certification. This is the PROVEN automatic belay design.
2. Return-on-Investment - Not to be confused with initial cost. Because of the long track record of use we are very familiar with the operational costs of our auto belays. We know that our product represents the best long-term value.
3. Ease of Use - Our Auto belays are low maintenance. They are typically only mounted once in the most appropriate area of your climbing wall. No climbing ladders to move them around! No return shipping for factory inspections or services - ever! Our belays are mounted behind the climbing wall at ground level where you can easily perform any required service and more importantly inspect them for proper function. The open design allows you to visually check all critical parts.
