Unfortunately we are unable to take any more orders for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend (Thu 02 June - Mon 06 June)


Use our rope and post hire to help bring order and control to your event. Whether it's to section off an area or to make something stand out, we've got what you need.

Our ropes and post hire is one of the essentials of event hire along with our tensabarriers. They’re useful for all kinds of situations, are easy to set up and take down.

What do I need to know about rope and post hire?

While easy to set up, knowing how many ropes and posts needed is a little bit more of an art form. For a straight line, there is always one more post needed than ropes; more complex arrangements will differ and it’s always worth drawing out first to make sure you’ve got it right. Sizing is important to understand too; while ropes are 1.5m long it’s de rigueur to allow them to “sag” a little, so you should allow 1.2m for each rope.

Tensabarriers are a bit easier to deal with. They come with a post and one stretchy piece of fabric which recoils into the post when not clipped to another post. Simply measure the distance needed to block off, and divide by 1.5m to get the number of posts needed.
