Cable parachutes for steel winch cables

BT cable parachute

The durable parachute with high life expectancy. The large canopy enables pulling in of the winch cable at a low engine torque. The second generation of this cable parachute is smaller, is dropping faster and thus less affected from siedewinds.

Four-segment canopy, material now is even stronger and from more abrasion resistant nylon. With 8 black end-to-end shroud belts, reinforced parachute edges.
The long shroud belts are exchangeable. When damaged, you can order replacement belts and can exchange them yourself.
The shroud belts are held together by a delta screw-type connector.

Important notes for the use of the BT cable parachute
The BT cable parachute is now smaller, thus you must not use a 10 m intermediate cable any longer ( SBO/LTA 73-16 this is mandatory for a canopy diameter larger than 1500 mm).  the 2 m intermediate cable (and 3 m safety cable) is now sufficient. If the 10 m intermediate cable has proved itself in operation you may of course continue to use it.


Cross-panel cable parachute

tost-seilfallschirmThis light parachute combines high strength with a very good price/performance ratio. Its special construction allows for the parachute to descend very slowly and nearly non-rotating.

Canopy made of two polyamide panels stitched together cross-shaped. The canopy edges are reinforced with belts. Parachute colour: white. Eight shroud lines are held together at top and bottom in large leather thimbles. The shroud belts are tied to loops at the canopy base.

Important notes for the use of the cross-panel cable parachute
The canopy diameter is less than 1.5 m.
Thus the sequence is as follows: 3 m safety cable – weak link element (can also be positioned between connecting ring pair and safety cable) – 2 m intermediate cable.
