Arlington, Texas -–  Trinity Sling Authority (Trinity Sling) today released photos of modern, custom architectural railing constructed for Southwest Airlines’ new flight training facility at Dallas’s Love Field–the “Wings” project. The railing was constructed and installed by GST Manufacturing (GST) using architectural cable provided exclusively by Trinity Sling and under the project management of McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. (McCarthy).

Streamlined and Secure

The pictures reveal railing that’s both beautifully modern and low-profile. Such a streamlined aesthetic is well within Trinity Sling’s capabilities. “We manufacture and install architectural cable railing for many different applications. From large commercial jobs like stadiums and highway guardrails to smaller commercial jobs like office and residential stairs and porch railing, we do it all,” notes Bobby Allen, VP—Trinity Sling. “We pride ourselves on providing secure, up-to-date architectural cable solutions to customer specifications.”

Natural Fit for Southwest Airlines’ Wings Flight Training Facility

Trinity Sling has been creating and installing architectural cable railing for a long time. Since 1979, when the company was founded, Trinity Sling’s core business has focused on the wire rope/cable with which the railing is constructed. The company has grown into a centrally-located DFW Metroplex provider of rigging to diverse industries throughout North America. Cable railing is only one of many product offerings within the Trinity Sling one-stop shop. The company also provides other rigging for Construction, Manufacturing, Oilfield and Fracing, Transportation, Road and Bridge, and Tower needs.

The Southwest Airlines Wings flight training facility construction project was a natural fit for Trinity Sling, because GST needed a cable supplier who could custom-fabricate the cables to specifications and supply to McCarthy’s specifications on a grand scale. Trinity Sling was more than up to the task. The facility’s large architectural cable quantities, quick turnaround times, and precision detailing around corners and columns was no problem for the technicians in the Trinity shop. The riggers at Trinity created special, custom solutions for the project that gave GST’s railing the coverage it needed in tight spots that seemed impossible to negotiate seamlessly. And yet, the tight spots were maneuverable, thanks to Trinity Sling.


Dependable North American Construction Rigging Source

As the Dallas/Fort Worth construction community and other industries it serves have noticed, Trinity Sling produces agreed-upon results to specifications on time. The company’s reputation is the source of good supplier relationships across industries, which directly affects customer satisfaction, project partner satisfaction, and the long-term viability of its wire rope slings, cables, and other rigging. Although Trinity ships many oilfield restraint systems, highway cables, and transportation hardware and rigging across North America, the company is based in Texas and satisfies Texas customers all day long. Trinity has capacity to grow as the needs of business dictate. It is poised for additional business that customers require. Trinity has planned for change.
