It is expandable with an addition of four harnesses and 5 treadles to eight harnesses with 10 treadles. The tie-up is made to the metal parallel lams, which can be tied either singly or in combinations, allowing for unbalanced weaves not possible on the usual kind of sinking shed loom, the counterbalance type.

Delta 110 The Delta's treadles are hinged from the back allowing for a very light weight treadling action. The DELTA is a modern parallel counter marche loom based on the HOLLANDIA, which it replaces, and the very successful SPRING. The DELTA is easily recognizable as the flagship for the LOUET line of Floor looms. Comfortable, robust and technologically advanced, but above all a weaver's loom. Warp tension can be adjusted by fine increments to insure the tension is just the way you want it. The floating breast beam insures tension is returned to exactly the same tension as you had before you advanced the cloth. Tie ups are easy. Every treadle is tied to every harness which means you only have to depress one treadle at a time. All treadles work the same way across the full width of the loom because of the parallel system. Also, all lams are horizontal which makes changing tie-ups quick and easy. For individual comfort, blocks are available to adjust treadle height. Harnesses are adjustable to allow you to create slack in the heddles for easier threading and tighten them for weaving. The brake system on the DELTA is a friction brake system on the warp beam, which is sturdy and easy to operate. A convenient advancing system is provided on the cloth beam.
