Title (EN) TOP-LOAD ZIP LINE TROLLEY'S WITH VARIABLE SPEED CONTROL
(FR) CHARIOT DE TYROLIENNE À CHARGEMENT PAR LE HAUT DOTÉ D'UNE COMMANDE DE VITESSE VARIABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A top-load trolley with speed control system is disclosed. The trolley has a housing of metal plates with a series of fixed and movable parts mounted between. A number of rollers are moveably mounted in-line within the housing such that they may ride atop of a zip line and support the weight of the trolley and a passenger. An additional roller is placed in opposition to the load-bearing rollers, arranged to contact the zip line along its underside. Thus, at least three rollers may be configured to produce an adjustable amount of friction on the zip line, thereby providing a more controlled speed down a zip line course. Additionally, an emergency brake mechanism that may be used in conjunction with the top-load trolley with speed control system is disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un chariot à chargement par le haut doté d'un système de commande de vitesse. Le chariot comprend un boîtier de plaques métalliques doté d'une série de parties fixes et mobiles montées entre elles. Un certain nombre de rouleaux sont montés mobiles en ligne à l'intérieur du boîtier de telle sorte qu'ils peuvent se déplacer au-dessus d'une tyrolienne et soutenir le poids du chariot et d'un passager. Un rouleau supplémentaire est placé à l'opposé des rouleaux porteurs et est agencé de façon à entrer en contact avec la tyrolienne le long de son côté inférieur. Ainsi, au moins trois rouleaux peuvent être conçus pour produire une quantité réglable de frottement sur la tyrolienne, ce qui permet d'obtenir une vitesse plus contrôlée vers le bas d'une tyrolienne. De plus, l'invention concerne un mécanisme de frein d'urgence qui peut être utilisé conjointement avec le chariot à chargement par le haut doté d'un système de commande de vitesse.
