Is your bamboo silk rope safe for suspension?Updated 2 years ago

Our manufacturers have done both static (hanging weights on it to test the stretch and for loss of tension, and during manufacturing, a load breaking point test) and we have tested it in actual use for dynamic suspensions, from suspending furniture to mannequins to multiple trials with a 250-lb person.

Unlike most typical bamboo silk, ours is specially made for suspension. Typically, most bamboo silk is not constructed in a way that is safe for suspension--the twist is too loose and will stretch (which can be dangerous in suspension). Our bamboo ropes stands out with its much tighter twist making it more like tying with jute or hemp than loose cotton. Because it stays consistent through the suspension, you will have minimal stretching.
