Aerial Silk / Light Stretch is quite static and has nearly no stretch. It is ideal for beginners because it's easier to climb compared to more stretchy fabric. The lack of stretch makes it less ideal for high level performance since the shock loads of drops are not dampened by the fabric and are passed directly to the performer. It is possible to use this kind of fabric for high level drops with the use of a bungee pack to absorb the shock loads. This fabric is ideal for installation in "loops" like in aérien yoga or with low ceiling installations.

Our Silks are sold PER Meter, please make sure to read below to be sure you order the correct length.

A minimum order of 8 meters is required. 

To know the length of Silk required, you need to take the expected usable length (example: 5 meters), double it and add one (1) extra meter.  Why? Because a Silk is always doubled, so that two strings are hanging from the top ring. So for 5 meters long, you would need 11 meters of silk. Always better to have a bit more than less, since the knot on top will shorten the silk about 1/2 meter so we always add an extra meter.

AND SO ON ….


IMPORTANT NOTE: Aerial Silks IS NOT A CERTIFIED Aerial apparatus. We offer the breaking load. Aerial Silks are commonly used, so time has proven their strength, but they do not meet our standards on load bearing. Read the Minimum Breaking Load below for more info.  Use at your own risk.


Available Colors


Black, White, Red, Royal Blue, and Purple


Details

  • Manufacture: 40 Denier Nylon tricot
  • Width: 180"  -  4.6 m
  • Weight: 0.5lbs per linear yard - 227g per linear yard
  • Breaking strength: Single strand 1700 lbs (771 kg), double Strand 3400 lbs (1542 kg)

Normally, you will always do falls and locks using both strands of silk coming down from the top point. But, in some cases, you will hold on to only one. NEVER make falls and high load movements on a single strand!  If you are using your silk to do high impact falls, your silk should be changed if you see any defect/rupture in the material, and every year of use, or more often. The point on your silk taking the most strength is the knot on top. Undo the knot regularly and inspect it. 

 Additional Accessories

Here are the additional accessories and their meaning- you can click on any of them to get more info:

1.     Ring to Attach the Silk to a Rigging Point

This is the common method to hang the silk. Using a choking method (see this video example below which is a good example)



On this video she passes it over the top of the Rescue 8. For a forged ring you do the same but until it is UNDER the ring.

 2.     Carabiner and Swivel Kit:

 A must have between your silk and any hanging point.

3.     Swivel S2 L

 A must have between your Anchor Loop and Carabiner holding the Silk if you have a fixed set up.

4.     5/8 Shackle:

 If you want to fix a point to a beam, a Tubular Webbing Anchor Loop, looped around a beam with a Shackle at the bottom, holding a Swivel and Carabiner is your best bet. 

                 Then you need:


  • 1 x Tubular Webbing Anchor loop (make sure to protect it from Abrasion if around a beam)
  • 1 x 5/8 Shackle
  • 1 x S2 L - Swivel
  • 1 x C2 AB - Carabiner

      
5. 
Transport Bag for Aerial rope / Aerial silks 

        A great option if you travel with your silks to keep them clean and safe from damage!
