Cablenet Tension Wire Grid

Fabricated Products

We have the ability to fabricate a wide range of products including our Cablenet tension wire grid. As pioneers in the development of this high level ‘invisible’ access platforms, we have supplied some of the largest examples of their kind in the world, including a record breaking 25,000 sq.ft. installation at a Madrid exhibition centre consisting of 25 miles of steel cable and more than 50 tonnes of fabricated steelwork.

These facilities – together with the skills of our design and engineering teams – enable us to produce the consistently high quality products our customers are looking for, and give us the capacity to supply expanding markets the world over.

All Slingco products are subject to thorough testing to ensure they meet the relevant safety standards and we work closely with external laboratories to ensure that customers can choose from our ranges with complete confidence in their performance.

And for those applications outside the capabilities and capacities of our standard ranges, our in-house design team is able to offer custom product development.
