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.
