Firetoys Static Trapezes are professional quality aerial acrobatic props. These trapezes are ideal for training and performance. The ropes on this trapeze are fully certified to a WLL (Working Load Limit) of 423kg and certificates of conformity are available on request. The official WLL of the whole set up is 250kg due to the two high grade steel carabiners supplied with the trapeze (WLL: 250kg each).
Even with the carabiners supplied as standard these trapezes are suitable for one or two people performing dynamic trapeze work (not to be confused with swinging or flying trapeze work).
Important Note:If you plan on performing or teaching moves that involve rotating the bar through the center of the ropes, we strongly recommend rigging your trapeze with a swivel at the top of each rope. This will help prevent Hockling and Birdcaging as a result of the cable in the core of the rope becoming too twisted.
The trapeze bar and anchors are made from high grade stainless steel and are meticulously welded together with no splatter or sharp edges. The bar's 56cm width is measured from the centre of the ropes meaning that the width to the outside edge of the bar is actually 58cm. The bar end of this trapeze weighs approximately 1.26kg. The soft four-strand cotton ropes are spliced five times exceeding all safety requirements and finished off with whipping for durability. All the trims are colour matched for a striking result.
The cotton ropes are professionally fitted with a flexible, UK-made, CE-marked, internal steel core rated and certified at a working load limit of 423kg for ultimate strength. This is much stronger than rope made from cotton alone. The steel cables are factory assembled and sealed meaning that they require virtually no maintenance.
Not only are the steel cables much stronger than cotton but their strength is more predictable thanks to their electronically measured ferrule sealing which ensures incredibly uniform breaking loads. Cotton's breaking load, on the other hand, can fluctuate depending on the fibre quality. Steel is also much more resistant to moisture, heat, cold and friction than cotton is.
As the ropes of these trapezes no longer play a structural role they can be made from a softer blend than many other trapezes on the market, making them a bit kinder on your hands. The finish is extremely neat and tidy making for a trapeze that not only does the job but looks beautiful at the same time.
