Synthetic Hemp Rope

Synthetic Hemp Rope

Synthetic Hemp rope has all the appearance of natural hemp rope with the advantages of using synthetic material. Synthetic Hemp rope:

  • Is made from spun Polypropylene
  • UV resistant
  • Won’t swell or shrink when wet
  • Floats in water
  • Is easier on the skin than natural hemp

All these qualities make Synthetic Hemp rope ideal outdoors, ideal for decking and handrails, on ships and boats, in construction and in children’s play areas - such as rope swings, ladders and climbing ropes. We have some great photos showing how Synthetic Hemp can be used.

The surface is soft to touch but easy to grip, and it's weatherproof so can be left out all year round.

If you are choosing Synthetic Hemp for decking or garden rails, wait for the rope to arrive before drilling holes. Holes will need to be larger than the rope diameter - for example a 32mm rope might need a 36mm hole to pass through. We advise drilling a test hole first.

We also sell a range of quality brass fittings, such as end hooks, end cup/plates, end caps and centre brackets that will finish your project with style!
