Purchasing an Aerial Silks kit is the easiest way to get started on your aerial acrobatic journey! The aerial silk measures 10.5″ yards, which works well for ceilings 12 ft or lower. The fabric is 100% 40-denier Nylon Tricot, which is the same type of fabric used in Cirque du Soleil performances. 40-Denier Nylon Tricot is a two-way stretch, so the fabric has a low to no stretch. This lower stretch silk is ideal for beginners because its easier to climb!
We offer an array of hardware that can be used to hang your aerial silk from several hanging points!
Span Sets: A 3ft span set (nylon round sling) is ideal for hanging heights up to 13ft, and a 6ft span set (nylon round sling) is ideal for hanging heights of up to 16ft. Span sets are ideal to hang from exposed beams and tree limbs, though we do not recommend you hang your aerial silks from any tree or non-sturdy surfaces.
Swivel: A swivel is a great addition to your aerial silk so that you can have uninhibited spinning abilities. If you have a silk without a swivel the fabric gets twisted at the top as you use it, so the swivel allows the fabric the freedom it needs to flow smoothly.
Eyebolts: If you are looking for an installation solution indoors for your aerial silk, then a 10″ hardened steel eyebolt will be sufficient for most ceilings.
- We recommend the assistance of a professional handyman or contractor to secure the eyebolt in place. The eyebolt will require some nuts and washers. A kit can be found in the hardware section of our website.
