A year synonymous with innovations for the brand FUNBELT®!

In the matter of design, FUNBELT® unveils its new elliptical gallery FUNVISIO®. A true architectural structure, the gallery enhances the ski resort in offering the possibility to take full advantage of the exceptional surroundings of the mountain landscape. The elliptical shape made entirely of aluminum and polycarbonate crystal, gives the users abundant space and excellent protection against extreme weather. The Super Lioran ski resort, the first ski resort in the Massif Central region to be equipped with the magic carpet, has already reaped the benefits from the panoramic view of this new gallery design !

On the technical side, FICAP MONTAGNE has proven its competence with the design of the loading conveyor for chairlift, FUNLOAD® for POMA, on the Telemix® des Jeux, on the slopes of the Alpe d'Huez resort. With a steady flow of 3,900 persons/hour, reliable and robust, it ensures the comfort and security of all. Thanks to the adjustable base, it facilitates the efficiency of the loading of the skiers. This technical performance is the result of a new collaboration with the designer and the French manufacturer POMA.

On the safety issue, a new patented generation of safety traps, approved by STRMTG*, lends the walkways safe and comfortable for use by all in any season. The saftey traps, PROSAFETY of FUNBELT®, significantly reduces unscheduled stoppages without putting the users in danger. It can be installed in different widths of the conveyor belt, for any speed up to 1.2 m/s, and can be fully integrated with all existing material.

On the subject of fidelity, with 15 additional installations in service at the end of the year, 2 patents deposed and 3 approved systems, FICAP MONTAGNE has obtained its « aiglon d’or » on the springboard of innovation !
