Principles of Design

Unlike conventional kinetic energy locks which can be forced open, our system mechanically locks, preventing unauthorised entry and maximised safety.
Gates can be fully integrated with the ride’s control system. Preventing dispatch unless all doors are closed and locked properly.

Coded switches that make it impossible to activate the gates or ride any other way than that intended by the detailed design risk assessment, therefore ensuring visitor safety and avoiding human error.

The Drop Tower experience Nemesis Sub-terra the RG11 system is fully integrated into the ride experience.

In this instance the RG11 system is used as an exit gate system however the challenge was to theme the system as part of the ride experience.

We manufactured two themed fire rated doors complete with pressure sensitive switches and intumescent closures.

Guests plunge 20 ft into darkness, the lap bars are released and guests rush to the exit chased by themed actors. They are met with 2 steel themed doors covered in an ancient alien language. After a few painstaking seconds the doors open and guests are released.

This unique system went to the next level of safety requirements and ride integration the system meets performance Level E.
