Cablenet Tension Wire Grid
The virtual floor® for high level access

Cablenet tension wire grids are strong, safe and virtually invisible access platforms used in theatres, studios and concert halls. A Cablenet tension wire grid platform creates a permanent, high level and completely safe ‘virtual floor®’ on which maintenance staff and engineers can work in complete confidence.

Slingco pioneered the use of tension wire grid systems, introducing the technology to new markets and developing innovative solutions for challenging installations – including the two largest completed anywhere in the world. Over the years we have developed a range of systems to meet the different requirements of different projects. From the functionality and cost-effectiveness of our standard Modular system, through the greater load capacity and flexibility of our ModularPlus+ system, to the ultimate design versatility of Cablenet Custom, we have solutions for every type and size of installation.

This innovative high level platform, eliminates the need for fixed position walkways, technical galleries or scaffold towers. Virtually invisible from ground level, a Cablenet virtual floor® casts no shadow from stage lighting positioned above.

It’s not easy telling the difference between companies that talk the talk and those who walk the walk. Often you won’t know until you start doing business. We like to think our track record speaks for itself. Watch our video, see what we’ve done, then come talk to us. Because whatever the project, however great the challenge, we get the job done.
