What Our Clients Say
Client Picture
Nick MoriartyManaging Director - Ropes Course Developments

Paul Capper was a long serving employee of RCD. In addition to considerable experience as a constructor and trainer he was employed by RCD to oversee its inspection and maintenance requirements.

To this end, Paul is pragmatic in his approach, judicious in his judgements and brings with him a wealth of experience that is unsurpassed in his field. RCD recommends his services for all types of ropes course inspections.

James MittinsDirector - JM Adventure

Capstone Inspections deliver a professional service, carrying out inaugural inspections post construction of our High Ropes Courses and offering sound, professional advice to ensure we conform to the relevant EN standards. 

With regular updates from Capstone Inspections we have been able to keep up to date with regulations and periodically review and improve our designs. We also recommend Capstone carry out the annual inspection to all our clients.

Client Picture
Kees Jan VerwaalManaging Director - Funcha

As designer and builder of ropes courses regarding the standard EN 15567-1, -2, we found out that Capstone Inspections are the best party to find for Inaugural and Annual inspections.

Paul Capper is very dedicated to carry out his job, he is very sharp on safety and as we have seen due to his over 20 years of experience he is tremendously skilled to carry out inspections at all kind of ropes courses. I thoroughly would recommend one to hire the knowledge and capability from Capstone Inspections for your ropes course and high events!

Client Picture
Steve WoodsDirector - Vertex Instructor Training

Vertex has worked with Capstone for many years and considers them to be the most experienced ropes course and adventure park inspection company in the industry. Paul Capper also undertakes Instructor & Rescuer Training as well as bespoke training on behalf of Vertex and is a highly regarded and excellent trainer. 

We worked together with Capstone to create the original Operational Inspection & Maintenance Training Course, designed for your staff to become qualified and competent in the operational inspections required for your course and facility to meet the requirements of EN 15567: 2015. We would have no hesitation in recommending Paul and his team for all your inspection needs.

Client Picture
Johara Sykes-DaviesBrand Manager - Zip World

A ropes course should be both structurally sound and operationally safe. A structurally robust ropes course is not necessarily safe for use - a factor often overlooked by structural engineers. Safety is the number one priority for Zip World. Inspections ensure adventures are fit for purpose in every respect; however, this requires extensive experience on the part of the inspection body. This can only be achieved through many years of relevant experience combined with a high level of competence. 

Capstone’s inspectors have many years experience in ropes course construction, maintenance and operation. Capstone plays an important role in all of our inspection processes.

Client Picture
Jonathan WalterManaging Director - Flying Fox - Kenya

Capstone provides more than just an inspection process, Paul Capper is a source of invaluable industry-specific advice on safe zip-line operations.
