Manila rope, also known as hemp rope, is made from the strong natural fibres of the abacá plant native to the Philippines. This material is known as Manila hemp, and is naturally very strong, abrasion resistant and stretch-resistant.
Manila rope is very durable, flexible, and known for its resistance to sunlight and salt water, making it very popular within the marine and fishing industries. Manila rope was most commonly used for ship lines, fishing nets and mooring, but this versatile rope is now widely used in other industries like agriculture and construction. Manila rope is also a popular material in landscaping, climbing, exercising, furniture making, and much more.
Hercules SLR stocks Manila rope in a variety of diameters and break strengths, available in cut-lengths, coils and assemblies.
