ERCA – certified inspection body

-Balance is the first ERCA certified inspection body for recurring inspections in Europe!


One important fundamental for guaranteeing the safety of rope course systems with regard to technology and operation is standardised inspections conducted by expert inspection bodies. For this reason, ERCA has established a certification system for inspection bodies. For the first time, operators of rope courses have the opportunity to use an inspection body for regular inspections certified by the technical federation ERCA.

An inspection by Balance

draws on the knowledge of many differently constructed facilities as well as on several hundred inspections.
Your benefit here is that we do not just review and assess the technical safety. Thanks to our experience in constructing and operating such facilities, we can also check whether the elements are working safely and identify any sources of danger.
Naturally, we also conduct inspections on systems not produced by ourselves.
