Facnor Roller Furlers are well known for their reliability and their simplicity of installation by the well known boat builders (BENETEAU, DEL PARDO, DUFOUR, JEANNEAU …) as well as by charters company. Each furler is composed of a drum, a series of sections which come around the forestay and a hoisting system : halyard swivel or sheave box. The jib furler is designed to be installed without unstepping the mast nor cutting the wire. Race Developed Technology
Facnor Furler models include;
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 Facnorâ€™s continuous development.
Bearing box : Strength – Performance – Innovation.
The Ls/Lx/Rx drum and swivel are fitted with a â€œbearing boxâ€ (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.
