Flying ropes for hemp sets and counterweight systems  

Manually operated flying ropes put stage equipment, props and curtains smoothly and silently into motion. They’re a vital yet invisible part of every successful theatre production!

Besides durability and balanced stretch characteristics, a decisive factor for flying ropes is a pleasant rope surface for easy handling.
