Installation of giant promotional "washing line"

  • Abseil technicians accessing bridge prior to rigging of washing line
  • Descent from bridge using electric winch
  • Abseil technicians secure washing line cable
  • Abseiling into position to make adjustments to giant clothes.

As part of Newport’s festival celebrations Abcas rigged a giant promotional “washing line” of colourful nylon clothing attached to a steel cable.
The clothes were attached at ground level and then the whole assembly hauled into position by our experienced riggers.
An electric winch was used to assist the access and hauling operations.
