Our synthetic hemp rope is also known as hardy hemp, polyhemp or hempex rope.  This synthetic hemp rope has all the appearance of natural hemp rope with the advantages of using a synthetic material.

  • Manufactured to accurate diameters
  • Is UV resistant & does not rot
  • Won't swell or shrink when wet like natural fibre ropes such as manila or sisal
  • Floats in water
  • Is kinder to the skin than natural hemp
  • Colour is a biege colour

All these advantages and qualities make synthetic hemp rope ideal for outside use such as decking areas, handrails, the boating and marine industry, construction industry, children's play areas, tree garden rope swings, climbing and fitness gym ropes.  The surface of the rope is soft to touch but easy to grip.
