1.With a porosimeter (measuring method JDC) the permeability of the material is tested

Steps For A Service Check
2. Visual check of the Material
The glider is hanged and visually checked for any damages or rips.
3. Check of all lines by viewing and feeling
By feeling the lines, all damages inside the line can be found.
4. Visual check of all parts
Risers, mallions, speed system, brake are checked for damages.
5. Betsometer Test
If necessary we test the tear strength of the canopy with a betsometer. The tiny rips are fixed with a stick on canopy.
6. Load test lines
Depending on the producers guidelines some specific lines will be removed and duplicates made. In a measuring machine the exact value of the tear strength is measure. To pass the check, the lines can not fall under the calculated minimum of 8 g.
7. Measuring of the lines
In a paraglider, different dimensions and materials are used and the load on the different lines during the flight varies, the paraglider will be walloped.
We measure each line with a Bosch laser under 5 daN and compare those with the desired value of the manufacturer. Differences in symmetry and desired values are balanced by being looped around the mallion. If necessary, single lines will be replaces. After trimming, the paraglider is remeasured.
You receive 2 measuring data sheets. One before the trimming and one after. Our goal is the always trim a paraglider perfectly, better than the tolerances of manufacturers allow.
8. Final Check
Mallions closed, all rubber bands attached etc.
9. Service Check Form
If the paraglider passes all steps the customer receives a service check form with all measured values and 2 measuring sheets of the measured lines. An inspection stamp will be put on the paraglider.
Trim Tuning is the right choice, if a check-over isn’t necessary yet, but you want to make sure your paraglider is correctly trimmed. We check every single leash with a Bosh laser measuring device and by applying 5 daN traction. The results are compared to reference values of the paraglider manufacturer. Variations in symmetry and to the reference values are adjusted by looping through the mallion and crotch. If necessary, leashes will be replaced. After the first trim tuning, the paraglider will be checked for a second time.
You will receive two sheets containing all the measuring data. Our goal is to do a better job than expected by the reference values of the manufacturer.
Re-Packing The Reserve Parachute
After testing the trigger, which can be done either by us or you, the glider will be hung up and well-aired for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours. The next step is checking the closing lid and all the leashes. At the end the reserve parachute will be properly re-packed. If no compatibility check-up has been done yet, we will do it together with you. It will be added to your service records.
