The low friction rings will easily find their place on your boat in replacement of an old pulley.
Associated with a textile connector: shackle, loop, erse in textile Dyneema® and with our locking system (Twist Lock / Ring Block), Nodusfactory friction rings will bring you strength, lightness and performance to equip and rig your sailboat.
Each friction ring has a specific use and it is important to check its characteristics to use it well.
For that, we propose you a comparative table !
Nodus Factory Fittings & Tips
Follow the basic rules of seamanship to ensure maximum load on the low friction rings. A larger eye increases the strength of the ring, the angle of the splice to the groove should be at least 15 degrees.
The length of the flat eye should be a minimum of 2.7 times the diameter of the ring groove.
- FR 10 = 27 mm / FR 14 = 38 mm / FR 20 = 54 mm / FR 28 = 76 mm
The textile connector for ring will have minimum 0.6 times the diameter of the groove (loop, shackle, lashing, estrope,...etc). The Ø of the sheet or the halyard will be minimum :
- FR 10 = 4 mm / FR 14 = 6 mm / FR 20 = 10 mm
