Are Auto Belays Right For Me?


Industrial Training

Teach the fundamental skills of your trade with the TRUBLUE Auto Belay as a reliable and easy to use backup.

Auto Belays for Industrial Training

The TRUBLUE Auto Belay has been used in multiple industries where trainees are learning new skills for work at heights. Auto belays are an easy to use, effective, and reliable tool that can also help reduce staffing needs and requirements. The TRUBLUE meets strict international safety standards for fall arrest devices.

Emergency Escape Training for Firefighters

When learning proper technique for emergency escape, a reliable backup allows firefighters and their trainers to focus on the training at hand and practice those skills safely while working at height. The TRUBLUE Auto Belay is a great solution to use during training because it offers a smooth descent without the need for a human belayer. More training time can be committed to emergency escape equipment and skills instead of focusing on the backup system.

The TRUBLUE Auto Belay offers a smooth descent that adjusts automatically to the weight of the participant because Head Rush devices utilize self-regulating magnetic braking technology. The TRUBLUE won’t lock up like a standard SRL in the event of a fall, so time and energy won’t be spent on rescuing trainees.

Linemen Pole Climbing Training

The effectiveness and viability of the power linemen trade is uniquely tied to the ability to climb poles safely and comfortably. With current OSHA Best Practice guidelines for ‘Safety at Heights’ specifying that Fall Protection Equipment (FPE) shall be used when ascending, descending, changing position and when in the working position, it’s essential to involve FPE equipment in the training environment to get lineman familiar with its proper use.

The TRUBLUE Auto Belay is perfect for training lineman how to self-arrest, a vital safety skill for working at heights and climbing with FPE. With its smooth, controlled catch, the TRUBLUE allows students to focus on their climbing abilities. TRUBLUE allows the trainer on the ground to focus on teaching more effectively.

"The TRUBLUE Auto Belay is hands down the best training tool for teaching fundamental climbing skills. Without it, my students would not develop the proper climbing technique that will make them better line workers.” – Scott Meinecke, Veteran Powerline Instructor, Northwest Iowa Community College
