Marking Twine and Rope

Ranging lines are often used to mark out areas. That’s why twine and rope are often used by surveyors, builders, and road workers. Some of the rope and twine options include but may not be limited to:
  • Chalk Lines — Used for marking long, straight lines on surfaces that are reasonably flat. Using rope and twine is more practical than using a straightedge or drawing it by hand.
  • Polypropylene Road Lines — General heavy-duty lines that can be used for laying out roads. They’re also more resistant to rot and water exposure.
  • Twisted Nylon Lines — These types of twine string are braided together, so it has more strength for pulling and connecting.

There are also different types of twine and rope that can be used for measuring. They make good drag chains for taking rough measurements, but they can also be used for measuring water depth. They’re tough, flexible, and are light in weight. They can also come with black or red markings, depending on the manufacturer.

Marking twine and rope can be used in a variety of applications. They often have bright colors so they can be seen more clearly, and they’re essential tools for sports groundmen who need to paint a field. Not only does marking rope and twine ensure accuracy, but their non-stretch design also makes it easier to mark large areas of land with a great deal of precision.

This type of twine string can be cut off a roll according to the length you need, and it can be easily stored for later use. If you’re looking for any type of marking rope or twine for making chalk lines, measurements, or painting sports fields, be sure to browse through the broad selection we have at Engineer Supply. We’re confident you’ll be able to find a product that will meet your specific needs.
