Weather-tested solution for Europe's biggest zip line

Weather-tested solution for Europe's biggest zip line

Glasdon provided their Olympic™ GRP Kiosk to house control systems at Zip World, Penrhyn Quarry located near Bethesda in North Wales.

Zip World is home to the fastest zip line in the world and the longest in Europe. Opened in 2013, it has grown rapidly over the last few years and now offers the Titan a 4 person zip wire, giant trampolines in the Bounce Below underground caverns, and tree top climbing activities in the Zip World Fforest,

With health and safety of absolute paramount importance and the attraction’s exposed location, the team required a strong, resilient and versatile portable building solution to house the control systems of the #Velocity2 zip line.

Another important consideration had to be the external design of the building and how this would blend well in the quarry’s surroundings.

The Glasdon Olympic™ GRP Kiosk successfully met this specification and was selected as a control systems cabin for the Velocity 2.

The Olympic Kiosk is a GRP Modular Building System that is versatile, durable and renowned for its superior design.

Already tested by the storms over the recent Winter, the Kiosk proved its strength and robust construction remaining unmoved by the severe weather conditions due to its tough and durable GRP panels.

Its Glassfibre Reinforced Polyester (GRP) construction along with a smooth semi-gloss external surface ensures it maintains a smart appearance over many years.

The external walls and roof can be supplied in a wide range of colours (at additional cost) to match surroundings or your corporate identity.

It also offers a wide choice of optional features for lighting, heating, glazing and ventilation.

Typical applications for the kiosk include:

• Ticket Kiosk
• Security Posts
• Modular Toll Booths
• Car Park Kiosks
• Check-in Booths
