Slackline - 15m x 50 mm x 5ton - slack line

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Brand New

Colour: Blue

Breakstrain: 5000kgs (5ton)
•This item includes all the kit you'll need to set up your very own slackline in the garden, park or wherever.
•Secure the Slackline to two fixed points and tighten the line using the ratchet handle.
•The Slackline can be set up using any two fixed points of equal height, like a tree, pillar or post - as long as it can withstand a load of up to 1000kgs it should be suitable.
•*If you do use a tree as one of the anchors please use a protective layer between the line and the tree trunk. A piece of old carpet, an insulating mat or PVC protective tubing should do the trick.
•Please make sure you have at least 3-4 metres clearance above your head.



•Slackline includes:
◦1 x line. 25mtrs long
◦1 x ratchet handles. 2mtrs long



Whether practiced a few feet, or a few thousand from the ground, slacklining helps to improve balance and concentration in all aspects of everyday life.

The fundamental difference between slackin' and tightrope walking is that the slackline isn't rigidly taut creating a dynamic and versatile line that can be bounced upon and, more importantly, the flat surface area makes it a lot easier to maintain your balance.
•Can only be tensioned using hand force. Extensions or other aids are not permitted,
•Can only be used by one person at any one time.
•Can only be fixed above impact-absorbing ground, so something nice and soft like grass. Do NOT set this up over a patio.
•Must not be set up over water.
•Must never be tensioned between cars or similar aids, as then the pre-tensioning can be extremely high and will not be controllable.
•Should only be used by children under the supervision of adults, must be fixed somewhere secure so that it is not accessible to children without supervision.
•Should be assembled by adults only.
•Length must under no circumstances be changed or shortened by tying knots in the line.

Maybe 25mm is too narrow and mightn't have the elasticity/stretch/bounce..., but yeah, technically you could use any kind of rope?

This may be useful http://slack.e30tuner.com/articles_linetension.php

To get the "trampoline effect", the centre deflection has to be kept low - which makes the tension large, a 1000kg or more static loading is normal with adult weights.

Flat tape is used, rather than rope. Whilst you could use some types of rope, the term "rope" covers such a wide variety of construction methods and materials that there are certainly some that you couldn't use. Kernmantel dynamic rope (used for fall arrest by climbers) wouldn't do, for instance.

Ive used these between 2 trees although only over a distance of a few metres. Worked fine for a quick mess around over summer :-)

Good price for a proper one i would say

sry it says they are 25m long and the length should not be shortened. Does this mean i need to find two "trees" 25m (or a specified distance) apart?

No, I think the problem that they are worried about is weakening the line - as tying knots in it and incorrectly stitching the ends will certainly do. In normal operation it can be under a *great* deal of tension and a knot can easily halve the rope's tensile strength. Incorrect stitching could weaken it even more.

You can, of course, run the line several times around one of the "trees".
