stainless steel sideplates are the trademark of these
beautiful blocks. But itís the sheave design that gives them their
strength and durability. Sheaves use a low-friction composite sleeve
bearing for extreme radial loads. Ball bearings handle side loads. This
proven sheave design is used on super-yachts where blocks must perform
under very high, sustained loads without being excessive in size.
Block details include low-profile screw adapters and
stainless-on-stainless construction for easy service. Sheaves on
footblocks remove without unbolting the block. Headposts on swivel
blocks lock or swivel freely.
