A complete assortment of low friction rings has been added to the Rutgerson product range. Low friction rings provide a good alternative to plain bearing blocks in most applications where the line movements are minimal and the loads are high. For example back-stays, reefing points, jibs’ sheet leads and lazy jacks. Their versatility seems to have no limits on the boat. They are extremely resistant and strong. Both cost and weight is low compared to blocks. Plus, with no moving parts maintenance is zero.
Like all other products from Rutgerson the low friction rings are designed and produced in Marstrand, Sweden. The assortment consists of four sizes, all made of high strength aluminum with an extremely durable and low friction hard coat anodizing in black.
