    Really pleased with the final outcome. I made my own wooden mounts from log slices and created an "oldie worldie" look. Would highly recommend.

  7. Sabine Walkden (verified owner)

    This rope bannister looks amazing in my cottage set against the backdrop of exposed bricks. My son came to assist me (I am a 65 year old female) and everything went so smoothly. I predrilled the wooden mounts and it made lift so much easier. Highly recommended!

    Great product, thank you guys

  11. James Arkell (verified owner)

    The rope bannister looks fabulous and is effective. The screws were shonky as a couple were wrong size or the powder coating damaged the thread so used my own and dabbed the head with black enamel.

  12. Simon Hickman (verified owner)

    A beautifully made rope bannister that looks wonderful ! I’m very happy – Recommended.

  13. Neil Sutcliffe (verified owner)

    Lovely rope, brackets are also great, delivered quickly and most importantly looks great once installed. We used a strip of oak to mount on rather than the individual mount so I can’t comment on those.

Questions and answers of the customers

    Good afternoon, I would require 4m of rope which would require a bend roughly half way. I estimate that I would need 6 brackets. Do any brackets come included in the price or will I need to order 6 using the field on the order sheet online? Thanks in advance, Martyn

    A Hi, Thank you for your message, no brackets are include in the price and would needed added on the form. We have a blog post with more information on about measuring with corners it may help you. Regards RopeServices UK
  2. Hi there, I am looking at buying the hemp bannister rope. I have a couple of questions: - Does the length include the knots? I need to fill a 4.2 metre space. Do I order 4.2 metres length or should I go slightly shorter to allow space for the knots? - I don't plan on having a droop. How many wall fittings would you recommend? I need to round one corner, so presumably I'll need one on each side of the corner. Length is 3 metres before the corner and 1.2 metres after. Thanks in advance, Alex

    A Hi, Thank you for your question. All our bannister ropes are measured from behind the knot to behind the knot, we do not take the knots into to consideration when measuring. You are correct in think that you will need a fittings each side of the corner. We recommend using a fitting every 1 metre. On the 3 metre length you would need one fitting behind the knot, one fitting at the corner and another fitting in the middle. For the short 1.2 metre you could get away with 2 fittings, one at the corner and one behind the knot. It would be personal preference if you were to have another fitting in the middle of this length. All bannister ropes will come with the fittings behind the knots fitted in place with all other fittings left loose so you can fit them in your desired location. Regards RopeServices UK
