With a span of 678 meters, the Ganter Bridge is Switzerland’s longest suspension bridge. It is located at an altitude of 1450 meters asl. The cabled-stayed bridge traverses the valley along an “S” curve. It was designed by Christian Menn.

Webnet rope Ø 2.0 mm, mesh size 100 mm, 536 individual nets, total Webnet area 3200 m², held by 1612 surround ropes, Ø 6.0 mm, with clevis ends swaged on both sides.
