Facnor furler

The LS/LX/RX Range of headsail furling systems has been developed according to a definite technological concept to establish the west-about solo non-stop record. Now the same technology from offshore racing is available for every boat thanks to Facnor’s continuous development.

Bearing box : Strength – Performance – Innovation.

The Ls/Lx/Rx drum and swivel are fitted with a “bearing box” (a stainless steel thrust bearing between 2 large self-lubrificating polymer fibre bearings). This was tested over ocean races under loads up to 20 to 30 times higher than a 30ft cruising boat. Even under high halyard tension furling remains easy. Is available for every boat.
