The POWERFAN® is a highly engineered machine that is able to provide the freefall adventure of your life, in safety and without needing to deploy a parachute or strap yourself by the ankle to a bungee cord!

Technically it is a device that will safely and repeatedly control a person's descent, dissipating the potential energy by means of a fan. The fan is driven only by the descending person's mass and does not require an external power source. The POWERFAN® enables users to make a very rapid descent whilst ensuring a gentle landing. It is designed for use in either a recreational or developmental environment, under the supervision of a competent operator.

POWERFANS® can be used from almost anything high! Notably: existing adventure structures like ropes courses and climbing towers, trees, buildings, stand-alone poles, cliffs, caves, bridges, cable cars and cranes.

Participants generally step from an elevated platform of some description in order to begin their descent. However, the POWERFAN® can also be used to keep the participant safe whilst they are climbing the structure in the first place. This is particularly the case when used on poles or trees.

Each POWERFAN® incorporates an integral rewind mechanism to ensure a fast and efficient recall and the machine is so efficient that a through-put of one person every minute is perfectly feasible. There is also a counter to regulate servicing and maintenance schedules. Furthermore installation, inspection and maintenance can be carried out by any competent person, in-house or otherwise.
