Government & Mil Spec Rope


Many types of ropes and braids are used on, or for, government or military products. Many blueprints and drawings call for specifications which include a rope, cord or twine. Phoenix Rope can manufacture all types of assemblies and component parts from these drawings or prints. We can provide certificates of conformance/compliance where applicable; and provide competitive pricing advantages on these finished parts. If you’re interested in non mil-spec rope that looks similar to MIL-C 5040 and does not require meeting specific U.S. government specifications, we also offer commercial 550 & 650 paracord.

Phoenix has complete facilities for treating, dyeing, splicing or cutting to length. We also supply some of the more common government rope specifications below. Contact us today for your stock or custom military rope needs.
