Does low cost mean a lower quality?
Not necessarily. Higher priced ropes tend to be manufactured with a specific feature in mind such as softer or nicer to handle, increased strength or stretchability. Ropes that are cheaper to manufacture tend to be made without specific qualities which mean they are just as good for general use such as lifting, pulling and tying but may not be as good for specific tasks where a particular feature is required.
What is the cheapest option that you stock?
The cheapest overall is blue polypropylene which is a popular general-use option often used around construction sites for pulling and winching. The cheapest natural rope is Manila which is textured often used for animal toys and arts and crafts. Both options are amongst our best sellers and offer very high-quality product for the price.
Can I use cheap rope that you sell for lifting?
Yes. The best low-cost option for lifting is Polypropylene with the exception of Blue Polypropylene which is not test-certified although often used for lifting lighter loads on construction sites. If you are lifting heavy loads above 1 tonne the lowest cost option is Staple Spun which is fully tested and certified for lifting.
