Experiential Systems provides annual ropes course inspection services for indoor and outdoor ropes courses, challenge courses, zip lines, canopy tours, adventure parks, obstacle courses, ninja courses, playgrounds, tree-houses, climbing walls and climbing towers.
The annual inspection entails a hands-on inspection of all low and high challenge course elements/components installed. This includes but is not limited to an inspection of the following:
Upon Completion of the inspection a verbal report will be provided before leaving the site and a written report will be mailed in most cases within 10 days of the inspection. Both the verbal and written report will use one of three findings to respond to each element of your challenge course.
The scope of the inspection service outlined above is limited to a visual and tactile inspection of the challenge course structures, systems and components that are readily accessible to the inspector(s). The inspection will be performed in accordance with ACCT Standards and practices for challenge course inspections (other standards available). The scope of the inspection is limited to the items listed within the inspection report as seen and evaluated on the date of the inspection. The inspection and report are but a snapshot of the course as it was seen during a specific moment in time, and it is beyond the scope of an inspection or the associated report to attest to any future usability or condition of an entire course, system or component(s) that may be subject to environmental damage, normal wear and tear, abnormal or unauthorized use, intentional or accidental modification by others, or are simply inaccessible to the inspector without altering or modifying a component, system or subsystem. The inspector is a challenge course generalist and is not acting as an licensed engineer or expert in any other specific craft or trade. If the inspector recommends that the Client consult with specialized experts (ex. arborist, engineer, etc., or conduct any maintenance, repairs, replacement or testing the Client must do so at the Clients expense
NOT INCLUDED IN THE SCOPE OF INSPECTION SERVICES
Any area which is not exposed to view, is concealed, or is generally inaccessible because of soil, walls, fixed of immovable barriers, high tensions, general lack of access, or any other activity, system or component that is not included in the inspection report. The inspection does not include any destructive testing or dismantling of components or systems. Client agrees to assume all risks for any and all conditions which are concealed from view at the time of the inspection. The inspection is not a challenge course warranty, guarantee, or insurance policy. Some specific items not included in the scope of inspection services include, but are not limited to: Soil or geological inspection; arboricultural inspection; building code or zoning ordinance violations; engineering analysis of any system; efficiency of any installed components or systems; or mold, fungi, pests, termites, or other wood destroying organisms
In addition to general inspection services ESI is able to provide testing and maintenance services, and schedule any additional consultants to be present at the time of your inspection for an additional fee, and advance notice of these requirements. If your organization is interested in or requires any of these services, please read more about them below.
Sometimes minor repairs are necessary in order to keep a challenge course in passing condition. If Client chooses, Experiential Systems can provide repairs at the time of inspection, if simple repairs are necessary. Scheduling this in advance can save time and effort and could make the difference in an element being usable or not usable for your program between the time that an inspection is done and repairs can be accomplished. Unfortunately, major repairs will not be able to be addressed during inspections typically due to lack of time, labor and materials, unless previously arranged, scheduled and contracted.
Common Minor Repairs May Include:
Common Major Repairs Include:
Some installations, manufacturers, organizations and Jurisdictions Having Authority (JHA) may also require testing of systems or components periodically.

All testing services are in addition to standard inspection services and fees.
