RATCHET SHEAVES

HOLDING POWER

The patented extruded hole design, in conjunction with the groove profile of the sheave, provides a more powerful grip than conventional designs - up to 20:1 holding power. The anodised alloy sheave ensures maximum durability and strength-to-weight.

BALL BEARING ROPE SHEAVES

LOW FRICTION & HIGH PERFORMANCE

Acetal sheave with acetal ball bearings - efficient, lightweight all plastic sheave assemblies with ball bearings to take axial and thrust loads. Totally corrosion proof.

Alloy sheave with Torlon® ball bearings - oversize Torlon® ball bearings minimize friction and provide superior rolling performance. The narrow anodised alloy sheave is ideally suited to small diameter modern fibre control lines.

Alloy sheave with Torlon® rollers and acetal or Torlon® ball bearings - the ultimate high load, low friction sheave package. Torlon® needle rollers provide extremely high axial load performance and acetal ball bearings counter thrust loads. Available in self contained and 'hubless' models. Alloy sheave and components are hard anodised for corrosion resistance and durability.
