Slacklining involves balancing on flat webbing up to 5 cm wide. This trend sport is so popular because, in addition to balance, it also promotes concentration and coordination. Balancing on the wobbly bands is also fun at any age. Thanks to the standardization of the slackline system, slacklines are now conquering our cities – as seating and sports equipment in one. Behind the standardisation of Urban Slacklining is BLOACS, a young and innovative provider of slackline systems from Cologne, Germany.
For the first time, BLOACS is bringing permanently usable slackline facilities into the urban environment and thus provides the necessary infrastructure for Urban Slacklining. The slackline facilities are easy to install and maintain, accessible to everyone and can be used all year round. They consist of two foundation stones and the BLOACS slackline band. This is the only one on the market that cannot be cut and is flame retardant. This makes it vandal-proof and ideally suited for permanent use in public spaces. The two stones are both anchor points and benches. This is extremely practical, because in many cities the classic use of trees as anchor points is prohibited. Slacklines 3 to 6 m long are possible and the maximum construction height is 60 cm. Fall protection measures are therefore not necessary.
In the design of sports and leisure facilities in the city, the symbiosis between sporting incentive and quality of stay with low space requirements is becoming increasingly important.
Urban slacklining is an important element in making not only our playgrounds and playing fields, but also urban squares and areas as versatile and attractive as possible. Urban Slacklining is bringing a low-threshold and attractive form of exercise to people in the city.
