Product Description

Manila 3 Strand Rope

An inexpensive, general purpose, decorative rope made from abaca plant fibers.

Manila is a great choice for indoor or outdoor decorating and architecture projects, such as railings for stairs, docks and decks. The hard to find 3" diameter manila rope is particularly suited for this application, creating frames around gardens, or wraps for pilings or columns. Don't forget utility uses like fenders, tug-of-war, and obstacle course ropes.

Not all Manila is created equally and you will find our Manila is generally better than what you will find at your local hardware store. Available diameters and corresponding tensile strengths below.
