Bell Rope Prices


All prices are in £ (GBP) and exclude VAT.

Please refer to the information page for details of carriage and VAT.


Flax Bell Ropes


Flax has become the most widely used natural fibre for Church bell ropes. Flax

is widely available at a reasonable price but the quality can vary depending

on a wet or dry harvest. Flax is hard wearing and soft to handle. It is liable to

absorb moisture and stiffens in damp or humid conditions. Longer ropes can

change in length as a result of wet & dry weather.

Hemp Bell Ropes


Hemp is the traditional material for bell ropes. It is a superior quality of natural

fibre rope, giving greater strength and abrasion qualities. Hemp is not as

readily available as flax and is therefore more expensive. Hemp rope may seem

a little hard on the hands initially, but softens with use. Hemp is also liable to

absorb moisture and stiffens in damp or humid conditions. Longer ropes can

change in length as a result of wet & dry weather.

Man Made Materials


Pre Stretched Polyester (PSP)

This is widely used for the top ends of bell ropes and can be spliced by hand

or on a rope walk (often called a machine splice). It is low stretch and has hard

wearing qualities. PSP does not absorb much moisture and is not affected by

weather conditions.


Dyneema

This is a new entry into the bell rope market. Dyneema braided rope has a very

strong, polyethylene core shrouded with a polyester sheave. The ultra-low

stretch and hard wearing properties of Dyneema rope, make it an ideal choice

for heavy bells or long drafts. With a little ingenuity, Dyneema can be hand

spliced into existing ropes or machine spliced as part of bell rope manufacture.

Our standard sally diameter is 1 3/4 Inches. If a different diameter is

required this must be stated at point of order.


Our rope diameters and tail end lengths are calculated using the wheel diameters of each

individual bell. If a specific tail end length is required, this must be stated

at point of order.
