Manila rope, which is often referred to as hemp rope, is a natural fiber product which has been in use for thousands of years. Utility contractors spec manila rope lanyards because, unlike synthetics, it doesn't melt when it comes in contact with hot wires. Before World War II manila rope was used on naval vessels. Most people prefer manila rope largely because of its' good "hand" and ability to absorb perspiration, in gymnasium and obstacle course climbing systems, and in a number of exercise and strength building applications like battle ropes. Manila rope is a popular choice for tug of war because it won't snap back, potentially causing serious injuries, as nylon rope has been known to do.
One of the most common places you'll see manila rope is in landscaping. Contractors, designers and fence contractors specify manila rope for fence rails and frames around gardens, decks, piers and along pathways. It has the advantage of decomposing over time, making it the "greenest" of reasonably high strength ropes. Manila rope is great for interior decorating as well and can be used in lighting, artwork or displays.
