Prodigy Dyna-Core Shackle Trapeze
This trapeze from Prodigy Aerial combines the versatile shackle style with modern Dyna-Core ropes, which feature minimal stretch and no bounce.
The bar on these trapezes measures 62cm from end to end and has approx. 56cm between ropes.
UK made, tested, and certified trapezes.
MAXIMUM STRENGTH, MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY
Prodigy Aerial have designed the Dyna-Core Classic Trapeze to provide maximum strength and safety with a rope that is both flexible and comfortable to use! The Dyna-Core rope is a super strong 4mm diameter, 12-strand synthetic Dyneema core enclosed by a 4-strand natural cotton rope.
The Dyna-Core rope features minimal stretch and no bounce, ensuring the trapeze remains horizontal and stable like a steel-cored trapeze. A trapeze with no bounce will not cushion the impact from any drops.
Unlike a steel-cored version, the rope is highly flexible, ensuring it is comfortable to use and stable even wrapped and twisted.
The outer cotton rope is selectively sourced in the EU from a reputable manufacturer, ensuring consistency. The cotton component has a 24 kN Minimum Breaking Strain (MBS).
Expert splicing at the top and bottom of the ropes make the terminations incredibly strong. The bottom splice is whipped directly onto the stainless steel thimbles using a mighty 550 cord.
The core has a 1500kg MBS and provides additional strength and durability.
MAXIMUM STRENGTH, MAXIMUM VERSATILITY
The Prodigy Dyna-Core ropes are fixed to the trapeze bar with high-grade stainless steel (SS316), Prodigy Hex-Lock D shackles. These can be easily inspected, removed, and feature on other Prodigy props such as the Multi-Point Shackle Hoops.
Ropes and other components are inter-compatible and can be used in several different configurations. This modular feature of Prodigy Aerial equipment allows for greater flexibility when rigging.
The shackles have a low profile 6mm bar, and the hex head pin locks into place very neatly in an indentation on the shackle bar. This means it locks securely and with no protruding pin to get in the way. We recommend using a medium-strength threadlock on the thread of the pin to eliminate any risk of vibrations loosening the pin.
These shackles have a WLL of 300KG (FOS 5:1).
MAXIMUM SAFETY, EASY TO INSPECT
The Prodigy Dyna-Core ropes are a dream to inspect as the cotton rope can be untwisted, exposing the Dyneema core and splicing to the thimbles.
The ability to thoroughly inspect every component in the system and replace any part is a huge step forward in safety for a trapeze design. Trapeze boots on the elbows would need to be removed to take full advantage of this feature.
Prodigy Aerial use a very high-quality rope with a very tight lay which mitigates most of the problems that can occur with a softer rope, and the Dyneema core is much less prone to the issues that arise with steel cored trapezes.
