    More information

    This is a tough, ready, hard-wearing product. Using a shock-resistant rubber core together with a braided Polyester sheath, the elasticated shock cords we provide are resistant to damage, wear and tear and also retain their functionality after expose to water and UV rays. This makes them resistant to the damaging effects of weather and means they are perfectly suited for use outdoors. Bungee Cords are ideal for use on trailers, as a way to secure roof racks and tarpaulins as well as for commercial and marine uses.


    They're ideal for marine use, as they are completely waterproof - neither the rubber core or the braided sheath will absorb or be damaged by water. Ideal for use outdoors and in boating, canoeing, kayaking and other marine applications.

    Strong and Elastic

    Our Bungee / Shock Cords offer industry-leading strength and resilience. This makes them ideal for use in tie-downs, to secure tarpaulins, and on trampolines.

    Our bungee cords can extend to a full 100% stretch elongation. However putting them under such extreme strain is not recommended. Using the cords at their maximum stretch should be avoided as a safety precaution.
