How do I decide which rope thickness to buy?
Last Updated: 06/09/2015
We provide manila rope at two different thicknesses: 3/4” diameter and 1” diameter. The 1” gives a much more substantial look since it is thicker. However, please note that 1” may settle and stretch more over time, meaning that you may need to adjust your swing bed periodically. The 3/4” rope does settle as well, but usually after one height adjustment, you’re good to go. Our manila rope holds up very well outdoors, in humid environments, and salty air. The rope is rated for 1440 lbs. The manila rope is great for a rugged, rustic look at either diameter.
