THE MANUFACTURE
Vertige Aventures manufactures bungee ropes.
Since 1992 it has a bungee rope manufacturing plant based in Grenoble (France). Vertige, which markets its bungee ropes throughout Europe, is the only French bungee rope manufacturer and the only European manufacturer to have made confirm tests and trial results by an independent laboratory (CETE - LEM - APAVE LYONNAISE).

THE VALIDATION OF TESTS BY APAVE LYONNAISE

In 1995 Vertige Aventures made out a will and confirmed in 500 jumps all the types of bungee ropes of its manufacture.

They are the laboratories of control independent from the LEM of APAVE LYONNAISE, which realized attemps and confirmed results on bungee ropes, under the reference : CETE - LEM - APAVE 95.6.0075.1-2-3.
Trial conditions during tests in 500 falls were more binding than the normal conditions of use. For these tests, jump frequency was 1 minute and 30 seconds, fall factor equal to 2 and test weights greater by 25% than normal maximum weights used.
After 500 jumps the bungee ropes appear any degradation of their main structure and present the same guarantees of safety as the bungee rope in a new state.

Vertige Aventure is the only French and European firm to have made made out a will and control its bungee ropes and to be able to protect himself this level of quality and safety.
