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.
The POWERFAN® has been designed to conform to the relevant parts of BS: EN: 341 for rescue devices and prEN: 15567 for ropes courses. The device is also being examined by the TÜV for independent approval and POWERFAN® is working towards ISO 9000 certification.
There are currently three models of POWERFAN® available. The PF13 for descents up to 13 metres, the PF20 for descents up to 20 metres and the PF30 for descents up to 30 metres. Both the PF20 and PF30 models are only available as part of a licence agreement. The PF30 is also available as part of a mobile unit known as the POWERFAN®POD.
