Product Safety Certification:

All Alpine Sleds have received the "GS" safety rating from the German Testing group TUV:

 

 

 

 

 

The GS label from TÜV: The name TÜV (Technischer Überwachungsverein) is the official designation for multiple technical testing organizations. These organizations – such as TÜV Rheinland (www.de.tuv.com) – issue various quality labels. One of the best-known labels is the GS, which stands for Geprüfte Sicherheit (tested for safety). Only manufacturers whose products meet the strict requirements of the GPSG laws for device and product safety (www.gesetze-im-internet.de ) may use the GS label. Additional inspections must also be carried out to certify that the items made in serial production correspond to those that were tested.

 

SOME TIPS FOR SAFE SLEDDING:

1.
Select a hill that is not too steep and has a long
flat area at the bottom for you to glide to a stop.
2.
Avoid hillsides that end near a street or parking
lot, ponds, trees, fences or other hazards.
3.
Before you begin sledding, make sure the hill is
free of obstacles such as jumps, rocks, or trees.
4.
Choose hills that are snowy rather than icy.
Icy slopes make for hard landings.
5.
BE ALERT! Always keep an eye open for other
sledders. Look uphill before you cross a busy slope.
