Manilla Rope

A standard manila rope, this hard natural fiber rope has very little stretch. It is resistant to sunlight and doesn’t melt like synthetic roping material, but is susceptible chemicals. This natural hemp can be used structurally, but is not as strong as Safari’s Polyester Rope (see related products below). This rope accepts a dye well, and its manila color and natural texture are perfect for your tropically themed projects.
Appearance Manila colored rope of various diameters. Hard natural fiber.
Grade (Int. vs. Ext.) Great for both interior and exterior applications.
Durability As a natural product, expect normal weathering based on your climate. Highly resistant to sunlight, and doesn’t melt like synthetic roping material. Very little stretch. Drawback is that chemicals will break it down.
Size Available from 1/4″ up to 2″ thick, and in rolls of 600 feet (1/4″ rope is 1200ft)
Strength Very strong rope, can be used in structural applications. Better to be used indoors in this fashion however as overtime, weathering will begin to compromise its strength. Not as strong as synthetic roping.
Stainability Yes – it accepts a dye well, but typically isn’t treated in this way.
