In House Rope Repair and Replacement Service

REPLACEMENT NETS & ROPES

Customers are always looking for cost effective ways to gain more life from there playareas and often this can be achieved through refurbishment of the ropes and nets. Where required we can attend site and carryout the refurbishment works too. We offer an in house repair facility where we analyse the damage sustained and offer quotations based upon three available options with a further option of materials for temporary repairs available from our website.

Elements – Most nets and ropes are manufactured from verticals and horizontals and often it’s the horizontals which wear the quickest especially on climbing nets. Where this happens and the nets are constructed from T and Egg clips the net can be taken apart and individual elements can be replaced either onsite or here within our factory. Elements are produced from cut lengths of rope with relevant pressed ends to match the originals.

Cut & Shut - A simple and cost effect way of repairing nets of all sizes often when vandalism has occurred where the damage is identified, net is removed and sent to us for repair. On receipt the net is inspected, the damaged part cut out and replaced with a new section all hydraulically pressed with aluminium fittings to your existing net structure. On completion the net is retuned for fitting.

Replacement – Replacing nets can be achieved in two ways either by sending us the original and we will replicate the net and type of fittings used or by providing exiting drawings or a site re-measure and sketched you have taken on site. This is for nets which have sustained large amounts of damage from high levels of use or due to the lifeline of the product.

Refurbish & Upgrading

Nets and ropes are a common wearing part within any playarea and can often make a perfectly servable play feature look tied. Upgrading your ropes with a new rope bridge, access rope net or simple pull up rope is simple. All we need to produce a quotation and a 3 D drawing is a photograph and some very basic dimensions. On acceptance of the quotation a full production drawing will be produced for your approval and once approved your net will be produced and dispatched with simple fitting instructions. All ropes should be fitted by a competent person, if you are unsure we can attend site for a small additional fee and fit the ropes for you.

Onlineplaygrounds assists with the refurbishment of the SS Great Britian 

When completed in 1845, Great Britain was a revolutionary vessel—the first ship to combine an iron hull with screw propulsion, and at 322 ft (98 m) in length and with a 3,400-ton displacement, more than 100 ft (30 m) longer and 1,000 tons larger than any ship previously built. Her beam was 50 ft 6 in (15.39 m) and her height from keel to main deck, 32 ft 6 in (9.91 m). She had four decks, including the spar (upper) deck, a crew of 120, and was fitted to accommodate a total of 360 passengers, along with 1,200 tons of cargo and 1,200 tons of coal for fuel

Like other steamships of the era, Great Britain was provided with secondary sail power, consisting of one square-rigged and five schooner-rigged masts—a relatively simple sail plan designed to reduce the number of crew required. The masts were of iron, fastened to the spar deck with iron joints, and with one exception, hinged to allow their lowering to reduce wind resistance in the event of a strong headwind. The rigging was of iron cable instead of the traditional hemp, again with a view to reducing wind resistance. Another innovative feature was the lack of traditional heavy bulwarks around the main deck; a light iron railing [20] both reduced weight and allowed water shipped in heavy weather to run unimpeded back to sea.  - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
