Suspended Rope Bridges

Rope Bridge, Suspended, suspended

Awesome suspended Rope Bridges for treehouses, platforms, decks, woodlands and gardens.

Suspension Rope Bridges are created between two fixed points over distances greater than around 5.7m.

Structured on two 12mm 7/19 core galvanised steel cables and 4.75 tonne [safe working load] bow shackles, each with a 22mm eye-to-eye rigging screw tensioner to future-proof maintenance and cable swaging with stainless steel ferrules.

  • Dressed with 24mm polyhemp ropes on the outsides of the structural steel cables so that the deck board 'slats' are each supported and fixed by 4 lines.

  • Balustrades consist each consist of two independent lines of 24mm polyhemp rope and then a friction hand-weave of four independent patterns of 12mm polyhemp rope.

  • Round balustrade timbers, spacer beams and structural angles of glulam timbers [3 heart-woods], scalloped and fixed with stainless steel M16 coach bolts.

Deck board 'slats' can be in a range of timbers, either smooth wide boards of treated timber [45mm x 225mm] or ribbed deck boards in treated timber. We also achieve stunning looks using reclaimed timbers, typically resourced and with full provenance from Ashwells Timber.
