Synthetic Hemp - Hempex

Sympthetic HempFlying rope for hemp sets and counterweight systems.

Looks like hemp and feels like hemp but it is a completely modern synthetic fibre rope. Widely used within the theatre/film and TV industry. 


Synthetic Hemp or Hempex as we call it is our best selling rope. It really has so many uses and is widely used for film / tv work. Great for dressing film sets with traditional looking rope or making a set on stage look really authentic. It can also be used back stage for counter weight systems. All round a fantastic rope which is easy to handle and looks great. We as Hempex rope distributors provide high quality synthetic fibre rope to the filming industry and other clients regularly.
