TRUBLUE Auto Belay

The TRUBLUE Auto Belay has quickly become the most trusted & most widely used auto belay in the world due to its high quality design, patented magnetic technology, and reliable performance.

Why Is TRUBLUE the Best?

Designed specifically for the climbing industry, TRUBLUE is now used around the world at climbing gyms, indoor and outdoor climbing walls, recreation centers, training centers, camps, universities – anywhere people need reliable fall protection. There are many reasons TRUBLUE is the most trusted auto belay.

Magnetic Braking Technology

TRUBLUE is the only auto belay on the market to use magnetic braking technology. Magnetic braking is more reliable and does not rely on friction to provide the braking action.

Self-Regulating System

The magnetic braking inside a TRUBLUE adjusts automatically and responds to the weight of the participant. This means children and adults will both have smooth experiences with similar rates of descent.

Low Cost of Ownership

Eddy current magnetic braking means there are no friction pads or any contacting parts required for braking, so there are fewer components that might wear out or fail. This improves reliability while reducing maintenance costs over time.

Fit More Walls & More Climbers

The TRUBLUE has the largest weight range and tallest height range of any modular auto belay system. TRUBLUE accommodates weights from 22 lbs (10kg) to 330 lbs (150 kg) and our XL model has a maximum mounting height of 65 ft (19.8m).

Strictest Safety Requirements

Our TRUBLUE auto belay meets the strictest safety standards of any auto belays on the market.

Simple to Install or Relocate

The compact, modular design makes the TRUBLUE easy to install and allows it to be easily relocated.

"We use them in our facility for members, day pass visitors, classes, and our kids groups. Also, we have found that they allow us to capture a new revenue stream in regards to people who just walk in and do not have a reservation or any climbing knowledge." – Blaine Eastcott, Rockreation Sport Climbing and Fitness Centers
