Which rope diameter is best for my application?

Rope Diameter Guide

Find out which rope diameter is optimum for your application:   

Ø6mm jute ropes 
Ø6mm diameter jute ropes can be used for both ground and suspension work for people weighing between 70 – 90kg (11st–12st 8lb / 154lb–198lb). We also recommend these ropes for those who tend to bruise easily.  

Ø5.5mm jute ropes 
Ø5.5mm diameter jute ropes can be used for both ground and suspension work for people weighing less than 70kg (11st / 154lb). 
 
Ø5mm jute ropes
Ø5mm diameter jute ropes can be used for ground as well as suspension work for people with VERY LIGHT body weight.   

Ø4.5mm and Ø4mm jute ropes  
Ø4.5mm and 4.0mm diameter jute ropes can be used for standard or decorative ground work for people with VERY LIGHT body weight. We do NOT recommend these ropes for suspension work.  

The following rule applies: The thicker the rope, the more surface is available for load distribution (body weight) and the less the rope cuts into the flesh. This is particularly important when doing suspension work.
