Weblocks for longlines
If you want to set up a Longline, you always need a device to block your line. The most simple and lightest solution is using an aluminum ring in combination with a carabiner, to lock the webbing around itself.
The more professional devices have a banana shape and are called weblocks, which block the webbing fixed inside using a mobile pin.
A well-designed weblock retain more than 90% of the webbings original breaking strength. In case you’d use only a simple webbing knot, instead of a weblock, your webbings’ breakin strength would drop to 50%.
Weblocks There are 13 products.
Weblocks SR suitable for soft release
Soft point longline is called when the slackline longline only have two weblocks in the system, without the tensioning system (i.e. pulleys).
To release the tension in a long line with soft point, a SOFT RELEASE is mandatory to avoid reconnect again a pulley system with brake.
SR weblocks are designed to integrate the SOFT RELEASE directly to the weblock, without the use of auxiliary connectors in order to further reduce the weight of the system.
Stainless steel or aluminum weblocks
Weblock plates can be made of stainless steel or aluminum.
Stainless steel has excellent properties for tensile strength and excellent mechanical resistance for working with repeated stress movements even hundreds thousand of times without losing its original properties.
Aluminum is a superior legacy with lower weight than steel and achieves exceptional results in resistance to traction forces peak. Aluminum weblocks are great for those who have to carry a lot of weight to the highline mountain rigging point, where every gram saved is really important.
