New padeyes and winches from TMS
Technical Marine Supplies has expanded its range to include new INO rope padeyes and three new winches from Karver.
Deck hardware is a big part of business for the company that distributes brands such as Selden deck hardware, Karver and INO.
"As always the trends are for new lighter, stronger and more efficient designs often utilising soft or dyneema attachments rather than a more traditional metallic solution," said Nick Cook, sales manager for TMS.
The Ino-Padeye range includes three sizes catering for maximum working loads from 800 to 3,000kg, making it suitable for mast step halyard blocks, spinnaker sheet blocks, runners and turning blocks, as well as fixing points for textile standing rigging, or for multihull trampolines.
The triangular stick-on padeye comes in either fibreglass or carbon construction and has a breaking load of 150kg when bonded with a suitable adhesive.
‘That makes them perfect as a vertical fixing point for anything you want to hang inside the boat, and the bonding surface is good enough to use on deck for rope loads generated by hand rather than by a winch,’ added Nick.
The new Karver winches are equipped with a double gear mechanism, a classic first stage identical to current winch designs and a second consisting of an epicyclic gear train. Developed by the Pontos Company, this is the first time such technology has been used on a winch and it is said to have the effect of multiplying efforts.
The range comprises three models - the KSW Speed Winch, KPW Power Winch and KCW Compact Winch.
