The Carbon Fibre Cleat

THE C-CLEAT™

STRONG & LOW PROFILE

The lightweight ultra rigid carbon fibre composite cams of the C-Cleat™ are corrosion free, suffer virtually no tooth wear and are non-rope abrasive. The base is produced from long fibre reinforced polymer, a result of advanced composite technology providing metal replacement performance.

VIEW RANGE

Features


1.
Carbon Cams

C-Cleats™ feature lightweight, ultra-rigid, carbon fibre composite cams that are corrosion free, wear resistant and non-abrasive.

2.
Advanced Composite Base

Produced from long fibre reinforced polymer, a result of advanced composite technology providing metal replacement performance.

3.
Slotted Bearings

Self lubricating, self-cleaning slotted bearings can provide lower frictional resistance and quicker response times than ball bearings which may deform under high load, as well as superior resistance to sand and salt.

4.
Multi-Coil Spring

The multi-coil spring recessed in the upper part of the cam generates near constant torque. This constant torque ensures secure cleating of even the smallest lines with minimal abrasion or rope wear and low line entry and exit efforts.

T-Cleats™ hard wearing glass fibre reinforced cams

THE T-CLEAT™

HARD WEARING

Intensive development efforts have produced this range of cleats that provide unbeatable holding power, yet are designed for easy cleating and releasing of control lines in every application and load condition. Ronstan cam cleats are strong, light and corrosion free. The unique tooth profile and cam geometry are designed to grip without damaging the rope. A multi-coil spring recessed in the upper part of the cam generates near constant torque. This constant torque ensures secure cleating of even the smallest lines with minimal abrasion or rope wear and low line entry and exit efforts. T-Cleats™ have tough glass fibre reinforced cams providing outstanding value for most cleating applications.

ALLOY CAM CLEAT

THE ALLOY CAM CLEAT

STRONG & LOW PROFILE

Aluminium cam models built for ultimate durability where high wear and high loads are encountered. Cams are hot-forged and hard anodised for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. Ronstan Alloy Cam Cleat models are available in sizes small and medium. The medium cleat is built on an aluminium base for maximum rigidity whilst the small cleat has a composite base for an optimum blend of lightness and durability.

2.
Base

The SMALL Alloy Cam Cleat is built on a long strand glass fibre reinforced polymer base and the MEDIUM Alloy Cam Cleat is built on a hard anodised aluminium base.

3.
Slotted Bearings

Self lubricating, self-cleaning slotted bearings can provide lower frictional resistance and quicker response times than ball bearings which may deform under high load, as well as superior resistance to sand and salt.

4.
Multi-Coil Spring

The multi-coil spring recessed in the upper part of the cam generates near constant torque. This constant torque ensures secure cleating of even the smallest lines with minimal abrasion or rope wear and low line entry and exit efforts.

RONSTAN V-CLEATS

V-CLEATS™

SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE

Ronstan V-Cleats™ are simple yet effective rope cleating devices. Manufactured from PTFE impregnated, glass and carbon fibre reinforced composite material they are lightweight, corrosion proof and provide superior wear resistance to traditional plastic cleats. Computer generated tooth geometry provides a positive, self-cleating action on the line. For applications where constant line draw-through or high loads are expected, the holding power and opening action of Ronstan cam cleats are recommended.

CLAMCLEATS® CLEATS

CLAMCLEAT® CLEATS

A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF CLEATS AND ACCESSORIES

A comprehensive range of cleats and accessories offering simple, practical solutions for virtually any rope holding application. A deceptively simple ridged 'V' groove holds ropes firmly, yet is devoid of any moving parts to break or seize. It allows the immediate release of rope by a short upward and backward pull.

VIEW RANGE

Features


1.
Marine Grade Nylon Cleats

Offer very good value for money for most rope cleating applications. They are corrosion proof and will last for many years outdoors. Where high loads or surges are encountered aluminium cleats are recommended.

2.
Aluminium Cleats

Are highly successful in providing a complete answer to 'rope burn'. They are unaffected by the heat generated by a rope surging back through the cleat as well as being suitable for sub-zero temperatures. Corrosion resistance is good.

3.
Hard Anodised Aluminium Cleats

Are the ultimate choice for extra protection from corrosion and wear caused by aggressive modern fibres.
