    Decking Rope

    We currently sell three main types of Decking Rope by the metre, including:

    For decking, most people choose a diameter between 24-36mm. However, other sizes are available and these can be found in the respective Jute, Synthetic Hemp and Manila categories. The maximum continuous length that we offer is 220m and, if you need more than one length, this can be easily specified in the ‘comments’ box during checkout.

    All of our Decking Ropes are manufactured by a trusted overseas partner and are superior quality. The ends are bound with PVC tape as standard but you can also choose from a range of other rope end finishes – including whipped, end-capped, soft eye spliced and hard eye spliced. More information on these options can be found on the ‘rope end finishes’ page.

    Which is the right decking rope for my project?

    Nine times out of ten, we recommend decking rope made from Synthetic Hemp. This has a very natural appearance and is incredibly soft to handle. And as it is made from synthetic fibres it‘s also weatherproof, UV resistant and will not rot or shrink if wet. It’s regarded as an all-round winner, perfect for prolonged outdoor use.

    By contrast, Jute and Manila decking ropes are made from natural fibres. This means they can be prone to shrinkage and – despite our Jute rope having a polypropylene core – they will deteriorate over time if exposed to the elements. But they do have a very rustic and traditional look, that will complement planting and timber work in your garden. And what’s more, for any indoor applications, Jute can be a much cheaper and more affordable alternative to Synthetic Hemp.

    Drill the right holes

    Three golden rules:

    • Wait for the rope to arrive
    • Drill test holes first
    • The diameter of the hole will always need to be larger than the diameter of the rope

    Watch our video for guidance - and what to do if you drill a hole too small.
