“A private client Rope Bridge project for the whole family across a very deep river canyon running past an old water mill in the garden.”
Rope Bridge location and setting
…with a view of the route for the Rope Bridge across a river canyon, deck to tree.
Rope Bridge structural steel cables
…set across the river canyon in 12mm 7/19 galvanised steel cable with 4.75T bow ring shackles and a 22mm eye-to-eye rigging screw to future proof tensioning. The cables are held apart and parallel using spacer beams set and sealed in on the cable with aluminium ferrules.
Rope Bridge structural beams
…set in-bound on the steel cables to provide for the build-up of decking around the tree at one end of the river canyon Rope Bridge.
Rope Bridge structural balustrade rope work
…in 24mm soft-to-the-touch polyhemp with a 5 tonne breaking load forming rope lines underneath the Rope Bridge, mid-height and balustrade height through the length of the Rope Bridge.
Rope Bridge timber balustrade frames
…using 140mm diameter Glulam round timbers, scalloped and bolted with stainless steel 16mm coach bolts, all in-bound on the 12mm galvanised steel cables and held in place with sealed stainless steel ferrules.
Rope Bridge decking tree platform and step
…wrapping an oak tree and with rope work balustrade providing a structural entrance and step blending seamlessly with the landscape gradient.
Hand-weaved balustrade rope work
…in a 12mm soft-to-the-touch and child friendly polyhemp using a friction weave for structure and stability through the Rope Bridge.
Platform to tree deck Rope Bridge
…across a garden river canyon to create access from the garden lawn to land and meadow beyond.
