What’s involved?

You identify the line2018-12-23T11:52:26+00:00

Use our online database of lineplans

The suspension and brake cascades are made up of typically between 30 and 50 different individual lines. Each has a code to enable accurate identification

We refer to the manufacturer’s specification2018-12-23T11:25:42+00:00

Every line for each size of wing is different

Using the line code and the glider size, we can refer to the detailed specifications provided by the manufacturer to determine the length, material, and any special construction method needed

Manufacture using our extensive stocks2018-12-23T11:39:57+00:00

Every line order is made up individually

We don’t hold stocks of individual lines because there are thousands of combinations of length and material. Instead we hold extensive stocks of the line material – Dyneema, Kevlar and Vectran, unsheathed and sheathed in all the main colours. Very occasionally we will have to use the closest match, and that is the case, we’ll contact you first, and you can be sure that the technical specification will match or exceed the original

Delivered by First Class Signed For mail2018-12-23T11:53:41+00:00

Making sure delivery is fast and reliable

We want to make sure that you get your lines as quickly as possible and that they don’t go astray. Signed For is used unless you ask us to send by normal First Class mail, in which case we ask you to bear the hopefully very small risk of them going astray

Will it match the look of my existing line?2018-12-23T17:47:14+00:00

We make replacement line to match the original specification

That means that the material we use will always meet or exceed the technical requirements the manufacturer specified. Usually the material we use will also be an exact match for colour, but occasionally we may have to use the closest alternative if, for example, the sheathing is an unusual design with two colours. If that’s the case, we’ll be in touch

Will it match the length of my existing line?2019-02-27T09:53:42+00:00

We make replacement lines the length specified by the manufacturer

As you may know, linesets can shrink, so you may find that the line we supply made to the manufacturer’s specification is longer than the one it replaces. If that’s the case, have a look at the article Fitting a replacement line to find out how you can fit your new line using different loops so it matches your other lines
