We are pleased to announce that our range of 20mm & 30mm through deck blocks is expanding to include stainless steel sheaves and recycled acetal sheaves.
Our through deck blocks offer frictionless guidance for rope and wire control lines which are required to pass through a deck. Featuring a hard-wearing acetal body, shaped perfectly to house the sheave, which results in a performance that you can rely on for adjustable rigging and other highly loaded applications. Available with one or two sheaves and in plain and ball bearing systems to suit a wide variety of applications.
New Product Announcement – Flanged Aluminium Deck Bush
We are pleased to announce a new range of flanged aluminium deck bushes is now available.
The new range of flanged aluminium deck bushes is a result of feedback from the marine industry and sailors looking for an alternative installation method to our ever-growing range of screw and push in aluminium deck bushes.
Allen flanged aluminium deck bushes feature a wider surface area with two fixing holes, allowing for a simple installation which only requires two screws and no messy bonding agent or silicone.
Four sizes are now available, all of which match the pre-existing range of nylon flanged deck bushes. Making replacement of an old worn-out plastic deck bush with a new aluminium version easy and seamless.
The new range is milled in-house at the Allen factory in Essex from marine grade 6082 aluminium and anodised in a variety of six colours to allow for a personalised touch or to colour code control lines.
What is a deck bush? A deck bush, also known as a fairlead, is designed to protect a surface from a rubbing rope or wire, they can also be used to act as a deflecting point. In most applications, a deck bush is used to guide a rope through a surface, such as the thwart or strut of a boat. It also offers protection to the material the rope or wire is passing through.
