The Prodigy PolySafe Shackle Trapeze is an affordable trapeze built to exceptionally high manufacturing standards and using top quality components.

UK made, tested, and certified trapezes from Prodigy Aerial.

 

The bar on these trapezes measures 62cm from end to end, and 60cm from shackle to shackle,

Important note : the product length listed refers to the length of the ropes only.

 

 

 

MAXIMUM STRENGTH, MAXIMUM AFFORDABILITY

 

Prodigy Aerial have designed the PolySafe Shackle Trapeze to provide maximum strength and safety with a rope that is both flexible and comfortable to use. The Prodigy Aerial PolySafe Rope used on this trapeze is specially designed for Aerial, super strong, and much more affordable than cotton ropes.

The Aerial PolySafe Rope has a very comfortable squishy feel in hand and is comfortable to hock onto. The internal construction is the same as a polyester strop/spanset, so PolySafe Ropes have industrial strength and a unique polyester webbing cover that is hard-wearing, soft, and comfortable!

The PolySafe Ropes have no stretch ensuring the trapeze remains horizontal and stable like a steel-cored trapeze. However, unlike a steel-cored version, the rope is highly flexible, ensuring it is both comfortable to use and stable even wrapped and twisted.

The bar on these trapezes measures 62cm from end to end, 60cm from shackle to shackle, and has approx. 56cm between ropes.

Important note : the product length listed refers to the length of the ropes only.

 

 

 

MAXIMUM STRENGTH, MAXIMUM VERSATILITY

 

The Prodigy PolySafe Ropes are fixed to the trapeze bar with high-grade stainless steel (SS316), Prodigy Hex-Lock D shackles. These can be inspected, removed and replaced, and feature on other Prodigy Aerial props such as the Prodigy Multi-point Aerial Hoop.

Dyna-Core Hanging Ropes and other components are inter-compatible and can be used in 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.

There is no compromise on safety with a WLL of 300KG (FOS 5:1) on these shackles.

 

MAXIMUM SAFETY, EASY TO INSPECT and maintain

 

The Prodigy PolySafe Ropes are a dream to inspect! They only require regular and straightforward, external inspections (assuming normal use). More details on full inspections are included with the product.

The Prodigy PolySafe Shackle Trapeze is ideal for high use studios because it's so easy to maintain! The PolySafe Ropes can be removed, cleaned, and easily replaced.

The ability to thoroughly inspect every component 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.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE…

 

Everything above assumes you have a suitable and safe rigging point, like a professionally installed rigging point or a reputable and rated freestanding rig. Not every home/studio will be the same, so we cannot advise on this part. If you haven’t established a safe rigging point, please do this first with the help of a structural engineer/experienced rigger/professional familiar with what you're hanging and where you're hanging it. You can find some more information on how to install at home here and general aerial safety here.

MAXIMUM STRENGTH, MAXIMUM AFFORDABILITY

 

Prodigy Aerial have designed the PolySafe Shackle Trapeze to provide maximum strength and safety with a rope that is both flexible and comfortable to use.

 

 

The Prodigy Aerial PolySafe Rope used on this trapeze is specially designed for Aerial, super strong, and much more affordable than cotton ropes.

 

 

Prodigy Aerial PolySafe Ropes have industrial strength and a unique polyester webbing cover that is hard-wearing, soft, and comfortable!

 

 

✔ Modular – change the ropes or bar.

✔ Movability – the trapeze movements are more compliant and mobile.

✔ Lighter bar - using the ropes for moves feels better.

✔ Beating feels better with a lighter bar!

✔ Recommended for using outdoors or in a humid environment!

 

 

Not as comfortable at the elbows compared to a classic style trapeze.

Be aware of small fingers' potential to get caught in the shackle area.

X Harder to dress than a classic style trapeze

If you're used to a classic trapeze, take time to get used to the

increased mobility before trying new moves. 

 

 

The bar on a PolySafe Shackle trapeze is light - only weighing 1,051g. Beating feels better with a lighter bar!

Using the ropes for a move feels better when there isn't a heavy bar waiting to hit you.

 The ropes are highly flexible, ensuring it is both comfortable to use and stable even wrapped and twisted.

 

 

The PolySafe ropes have no bounce, ensuring the trapeze remains horizontal and stable.

A trapeze with no bounce will not cushion the impact from any drops.

The shackles change the way the trapeze moves, making it more compliant and mobile, compared to a classic style.
