Blocks

Elegantly designed, and constructed from high-gloss stainless steel 316 with black anodised and Teflon-sealed sheaves, Rondal blocks combine elegance and efficiency with reliability and durability.

The blocks have a side-load bearing system on Torlon balls with a stainless steel coverplate. The journal bearings carrying radial loads have proven their worth over and again, notably on halyards where high static loads can easily damage roller or needle bearings.

Key advantages:

  • Low friction: efficient at high loads even with relatively slow bearing speed
  • Easy, low maintenance; completely self-lubricating
  • Low wear, long life
  • Designed to take high static loads
