Herkules for playgrounds

Each Herkules strand boasts a tough core made of steel wire for optimised protection against vandalism and to deliver high strength. It simultaneously ensures the rope
has high dimensional stability and sufficient rigidity so that its internal tension provides the netted structure with support. This also means the resistance felt when climbing up or down such structures is predictable. And that means greater safety! Each strand is tightly enveloped with a textile covering to deliver maximum grip with minimised risk for injury. With these characteristics, Herkules has become the underlying constructional component for many types of playground equipment. Gleistein Ropes offers a complete range for the most playful of all rope segments, which is backed up with decades of experience and a genuine fondness for playground equipment!

  • Four strands with greater stretch ensure a knobbly surfacefor the impression of a classic twisted rope.
  • The wirecores deliver strength and stability to the construction.
  • Yet the decisive advantage of Herkules 4S becomes most apparent during its deployment: it can be divided in the middle to allow slotted constructions to be made without the need for any supplementary connecting elements.
