The engine of the cable system is its diverter unit – or drive. It is responsible for running the two ropes in perfect synchronization. Our innovative drive unit consists of two motors that are electronically coupled with two frequency converters. This innovative cable park technology removes the need to install sensitive differentials, reduces maintenance cycles of the main ropes and the use of oil.
The patented two motor drive produces very little noise and operates very energy-efficient. An automatic shutdown system detects issues with the rope and prevents possible accidents.
Our operator station is optimized for ease of use. It was designed by experienced operators to make the station more efficient and is equipped with AI-assisted monitoring of magazines and the rope.
It is our believe a happy and well-equipped operator is crucial to running a cable park. If they are happy, the clients will be as well. Therefore our operator station delivers a comfortable and flexible experience while offering highest standards in safety, operational management and service.
The outrigging, called boom, connects the pylon and the deflection unit and is used to get quick access for maintenance purposes. Climbing the boom has always been a risky part of running a wake park – until now. We customized the traditional outrigging with railings on both sides, anti-slip gratings as well as a pair of cables to increase occupational safety as much as possible.
The structural integrety of the boom is supported through the use of flange plates instead of the usual round single flanges. As with our pylons, the boom is optimized for a wide range of weather conditions and was made to endure strong winds and natural vibrations from the system flawlessly for many years.
The elevator handles the ropes that connect the handle with the cable system. Once a guest has finished their course, the elevator transports the rope down to the operator station and back up into the magazine. To reduce accustic noise around the operator station, we moved the motor of the elevator up on the mast instead of the usual location close to the station.
To enable quick and efficient maintenance and repairs, the spring-driven mechanism can be quickly relaxed with a regular ratchet wrench. The catching fork complies with the highest safety standards and runs without any need for maintenance.
The quality of the starting dock will heavily shape the overall guest experience of a cable park. It is the place where guests put on their gear and slip onto their boards before they start their ride. The dock is embedded into the wooden base, adjacent to the operator station. It is only loosely connected to the platform to allow the floating start dock to adjust itself to changing water levels.
The start dock itself is made the same way as a wakeboard feature in open water. It is build from long-lasting HDPE plastic and filled with styrofoam in the completely sealed buoyancy chambers. The surface of the start dock is covered in a special carpet that prevents slipping and offers a comfortable bench for the guests.
Our cable towers – or pylons – ensure the structural integrity of the cable park. Their strength, durability, safety and easy maintenance is our main focus during development and construction. We improved on the traditional method of using round single flanges and instead secure the pylons with flange plates all along the entire cross section of the mast.
This improves the stability of the joints and makes our pylons last longer and more resistant to strong winds and both very hot and very cold temperatures. By default, our pylons are designed for wind load zone III, but can be increased for heavier loads on request.
In our research we found that the deflection unit of a cable park makes or breaks the experience for riders, especially beginners. That’s why we developed a new and revolutionary type of deflection unit to fix the problems of a single-wheel deflection unit.
Many beginners struggle a lot with the strong and sudden pull that comes with the directional shift in a corner turn. It takes experience to predict the pull and compensate for it. Our premium deflection unit takes away a lot of the force that occurs in a corner by increasing the theoretical roller diameter in our double-wheel units up to 8 meters. This leads to faster success even with no prior wakeboarding experience, but also allows seasoned riders to pull of tricks smoother, safer and with a lot more controll.
WakeSys is the perfect business software for wakepark owners. It is specifically tailored towards the needs of running a wakepark and was designed with the purpose to handle us many routine customer interactions digitally. This includes booking tools, point-of-sale system and selling tickets, memberships and vouchers. Every process and digital interaction is logged and can be reviewed and analyzed.
WakeSys is available to all Wakeparx clients in 10+ languages with technical support 7 days a week.
