Should the carabiners be lubricated?
Paragliding carabiners are silicone lubricated during assembly and do not require additional treatment afterwards, except if polluted with sand or other foreign agents. In case of the latter, clean thoroughly with detergent, rinse, dry, and lubricated with thin oil as used for climbing gear – Do not use grease! Regularly check the carabiners proper functioning!
What is a carabiners life span?
Contrary to the carabiners used in climbing, those made for paragliding are not subjected to impact. We however strongly recommend replacing them every 5 years or sooner when visibly damaged and/or becoming difficult to close and lock in place.
What are these carabiners made of?
They are made of aluminium alloy 7075 also called Zicral, Ergal or Fortal Constructal. This alloy is a mix of aluminium, zinc, magnesium and copper. Its strength is similar to that of a few types of steel. This alloy is mainly used and often found with products targeting technical outdoors sports activities.
