Gym Climbing Ropes

gym-climbing-ropeGym climbing ropes have long been a feature in both school and leisure gyms, providing a benchmark for upper body strength. Made from natural sisal or synthetic hemp, our ropes are sold by the metre and customised to your individual needs. The breakload of these products starts at 4930kg, meaning that it is more than suitable for gym use. While the sisal material offers a softer, more natural feel and lowers the chance of friction burns, synthetic hemp has a higher rot, UV and abrasion resistance, making it more ideal for outdoor use.

Key info: 

  • Available in custom lengths
  • High breakload
  • Natural material, providing a soft feel
  • Synthetic materials, UV and rot resistant
  • Low elasticity for long-term use

FAQs

What are the health benefits of using a this product?
Climbing a rope has been a popular test for upper body strength for a long time, and for good reason. The muscles used when climbing are extensive and include: fingers, forearms, back, shoulders, core and legs. Rope climbing is an exercise that increases strength, cardiovascular fitness and weight-loss.

What are the advantages when using the natural sisal material?
Natural fibres are not usually as strong as man-made fibres. This is true of our products, but there are advantages to using sisal. These include a more natural look and a softer feel, which will be more forgiving on the users hands when climbing. This is useful as the grip strength required to vertically climb a rope can be a challenge.

Would synthetic hemp be best suited to outdoor use?
Yes. While there are advantages to natural sisal, for outdoor use the synthetic hemp would be the ideal choice. This is because the material is treated and designed to be abrasion, rot and UV resistant, meaning it will resist elemental factors that would tarnish natural fibres. As a result, synthetic hemp is not only the best for outdoor use, but it also the longer-lasting option.

How do I safely use a climbing rope?
The strength required to climb vertically using only your arms can take some time to build. However, there are ways you can safely use the it as you work up to this goal. One such way is the ‘S-Loop’, which involves wrapping the bottom of the rop around one leg, essentially enabling you to stand using that leg and taking some of the strain from your upper body.

What difference does the rope’s diameter make when climbing?
As a general rule, the thinner the object is the easier it is to grip. There is not a huge difference in the diameters we offer, but beginners might find that the 24mm option is easier to begin with. The advantages of thicker diameters are that it focuses on grip strength and has a heavier breakload.
