spLIFE program

With the spLIFE program Teufelberger offers an unprecedented service on the market which will offer our partners and users a greater flexibility, a real added value and a better safety....

 

spLIFE is a vast program which brings together several topics, solutions and offers the following to our partners and end users:

  • We will gradually stop making ropes using the Slaice® method as splices, and replace it with a new method called spLIFE.
  • We will accredited splicers from all over the world, via the spLIFE accreditation program.
  • We will in collaboration with TUV Austria certify some of these partners via the spFLIFE partner program.
  • We will organize workshops several times a year and all over the world for our  access and rigging ropes via the spLIFE workshops program.
  • We will regularly train and control accredited splicers via the spLIFE training program
  • We will release publically the splicing methods for our ropes via the spLIFE public program. 

Why is Teufelberger launching the spLIFE program

We firmly believe that offering our partners to manufacture the terminations themselves has real added value. We also believe that this will offer greater flexibility to users who will be able to choose the length of their ropes and the number of terminations, and this more quickly and efficiently.

Finally, the fact of accrediting, certifying, training and rigorously controlling our certified partners and accredited splicers will be a guarantee of quality and safety for the end users.

FAQ

What standards spLIFE splicing methods are fulfilling?

EN1891A, ANSI Z133

What are the minimum average breaking strength for drenaLINE & Tachyon spLIFE?

20 kN for drenaLINE, 18 kN for Thachyon - if the splice is properly made.

Did the spLIFE fulfill also the dynamic test of the EN 1891A standard?

Yes , with a minimum of 6 drops

Why will we stop to produce Slaice splicing and replace it with spLIFE?

Slaice was a good splicing solution, but not replicable by our partners due to the stitching pattern and the dynama webbing inside the eye. And also too bulky to fit into the ZigZag.
