Both upper and lower portions of the orifice edge reinforcement may
be spliced once per gore.
Splice damaged orifice edge reinforcement as follows:
Place canopy on repair table with damaged area up, and smooth out area around damaged orifice
If only the orifice edge reinforcement is damaged, cut a length of type III nylon tape long enough to
extend 4-inches beyond each side of damaged area, and sear ends of tape. Center tape over
damaged area, and stitch according to original construction and table 2, WP 0012 00.
If damage to orifice edge reinforcement extends onto a gore section or sections and requires
replacement of the section or sections, place canopy on repair table, smooth out damaged area, and
pin section or sections to table. Be sure that radial and diagonal seams are straight. Cut orifice edge
reinforcement close to radial seams or radial and diagonal seams that border the damaged area.
Cut a length of type III nylon tape long enough to extend 4-inches beyond each radial seam or each
radial seam and diagonal seam involved, and sear ends of tape. Baste the 4-inch ends of tape in
place. Replace gore sections or section using the procedures in WP 0038 00, GORE SECTION.
Use tape as a guide for trimming edge of new section or sections. Turn under raw edge ½-inch, and
stitch tape in place using the same sewing machine, thread, and stitch range as specified in 2.
