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!

  • Six strands envelop a stabilising core of textile fibres orwire. This produces a uniformly round and extremelystable rope body with a grippy, ribbed surface.
  • Herkules 6S boast very low stretch and enables sophisticated spatial constructions to be built where cross points are fastened using special connecting elements.
