Viewing 5 items in Theatre & Barrier Rope

With options for stage design, props, and rigging, we have ropes perfect for all theatre uses.  Whether you're looking to add a level of authenticity to a production of The Pirates of Penzance with traditional hemp, manila, or sisal rope, or you just need some soft but strong theatrical rope we have it all.  Our most popular rope for theatres is a 'deep black' multifilament Polypropylene with high breaking strengths and a great handfeel, practically invisible against black theatre curtains -- it's economical and very light weight and strong enough to support scenery, not just actors.

We also stock high tech Dyneema and Vectran ropes and wires for use with camera equipment.  Dyneema, SK78, and Vectran are low stretch fibres used to reduce bounce on supported equipment and is available in black colourways to reduce distractions in live environments.

We also have ropes for use as sash cords, and larger diameter synthetic or natural hemp ropes perfect for hemp rigging, counterweight rigging systems, or fly systems, available in a variety of colours (including natural) ideal for colour coding which parts of the stage or equipment are in use. We stock rope for automated rigging systems too, for both types of motorised systems, motor-assist and dead-haul systems, with high breaking strenghts and enhanced texture for better control hoisting.

There are a lot of options, so if you have any questions our friendly staff have over 25 years of experience with ropes and accessories and can be reached via phone (01634 298 428) or by email.
