Advanced drum technology
The range matches drum diameters to load ratings providing the otpimum balance between speed and ease of furling.
Drums incorporate a sophisticated furling line groove profile and cross hold geometry to grip the furling line securely when furling. This is the same technology developed first by Ronstan for use in our world leading ratchet blocks to grip line gently but securely. When deploying the sail the continuous furling line self-ejects from the grip zone, remaining stationary for smoother, safer operation with minimum rope wear. A floating PTFE perimeter strip ensures the unloaded furling line can't fall from the drum or become snagged.
Secure, snag free connections
Ronstan furlers and top swivels have retained quick release clevis pins.
Maintenance free bearing system
Ronstan furlers and top swivels feature a factory sealed, maintenance free bearing. Roller bearing sets run on hardened races for smooth high load performance.
Material selection for strength and durability
Hard anodised grade 6061 T6 aluminium construction provides durability and corrosion protection. Grade 2205 stainless steel is utilised for the load bearing shaft for optimum strength to weight ratio.
Multiple attachment options
Attachment options include a high resistance shackles, snap shackles, fairleads and quick-release pins, as well as hard adodised aluminium thimbles designed specifically to suit torsion rope. The furler drum can be adjusted to suit either 0° or 90° attachment, as required to match the take-off alignment and deck layout.
