Tether Ropes For Commonwealth Games

English Braids, a leading manufacturer of ropes, was approached by a stage rigging customer to supply a number of ropes to tether an aerostat for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Delhi. The customer, Lindstrand Technologies, had manufactured an 80m x 40m aerostat lined with large mirrors for projected images. In order to ensure a successful installation, English Braids designed and manufactured custom Dyneema ropes at specific lengths, each with spliced terminations and labelled for ease of use. The aerostat was successfully raised during the ceremony, and English Braids was proud to contribute to such a spectacular focal point for an event watched around the globe.
