Polyester Rope

polyester-ropePolyester rope is an excellent all-round general purpose synthetic rope, with good tensile strength and high UV and abrasion resistance.

It retains its strength when wet and is very popular within the boating industry for anchor lines, mooring lines, fender lines, lifelines, winching and hoisting lines.

A low stretch rope, it is great for tying things down e.g.: awnings and flagpoles. Also used in the theatre industry for stage rigging and curtain hoists.

  • Twisted 3-strand construction
  • Made from synthetic fibres
  • Retains strength when wet
  • Water, UV, rot and abrasion resistant
