DECK HARDWARE

The Seldén Deck hardware has been created to provide the perfect combination of reliability, functionality and elegance that allows sailors to focus on sail handling and tuning. Developed through work with boats yards, sailmakers and yacht designers worldwide, the designs have encapsulated Seldén’s drive to produce a product for any situation.
It reflects our passion, all the way from the drawing board.

BLOCKS MADE FOR PERFECT INTERACTION

Seldén blocks give you the benefits of a high strength to weight ratio. We only use top quality materials like glass fibre reinforced polymer and marine grade stainless steel. Each com­ponent is designed for top performance and perfect interaction with the rig under all conditions.

The Seldén block range consists of PLAIN BEARING BLOCKS, ROLLER BEARING BLOCKS, BALL BEARING BLOCKS, HIGH LOAD BALL BEARING BLOCKS, HIGH LOAD PLAIN BEARING BLOCKS and RATCHET BLOCKS.

PLAIN BEARING BLOCKS

Plain bearing blocks provide great performance in static applications with heavy loads. Available in 16, 20, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and 100 mm sheave diameters.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
• Boom vang
• Tackles
• Halyard blocks
• Spinnaker sheet and guys
• Preventers
• Cascades

ROLLER BEARING BLOCKS

Seldén Roller Bearing Blocks (RBB) ensure low resistance for high, dynamic loads. This performance range is ideal for spinnaker sheets, backstays and German sheeting. The blocks respond instantly to maintain delicate trimming and smooth manoeuvres so the sailor can focus on driving the boat forward.

BALL BEARING BLOCKS

Ball bearing blocks are typically used
for medium and dynamic loads in:
• Control line applications
• Mainsail sheets for dinghies and keelboats
• Spinnaker sheets, barber haulers
• Genoa sheets
• Dinghy applications
• Vang applications

Technical Information

TRACKS & TRAVELLERS

Seldén tracks and travellers have been engineered to meet the reliable, functional and elegant design that provides seamless interaction between the sailor and system. Whether a racing crew or pleasure cruiser, the ability to easily adjust the position of the traveller car ensures any sailor can maximize the performance available.

LOW FRICTION, LOW WEIGHT AND LONG LIFE

The cars are machined to allow the Torlon® bearings to run smoothly in a seamless ball bearing race.

LOW MAINTENANCE

A slot in the car makes it easy to remove salt and dirt from the ball bearings. Simply rinse with fresh water while moving the car back and forth along the track.

MAIN SHEET TRACKS 

MAIN SHEET TRACKS 

Select the combination of track, traveller and end stops that best suit your  boat. High beam tracks for unsupported applications, low standard tracks, various purchase for the control lines and alternative positions for cam cleats. Use our calculator to determine the right size.

GENOA SHEET TRACKS

GENOA SHEET TRACKS

Consider how to adjust the position of the sheet car and whether it should be adjustable under load. Pin-stop tracks are common on keelboats and cruising boats whereas solutions with high purchase control lines are prefered by big boat racers. Use our calculator to determine the right size.

SELF-TACKING SYSTEMS

SELF-TACKING SYSTEMS

Are you one of those sailors who always end up sailing upwind in narrow passages? This one is for you. Sit back and watch the magic of a self-tacking jib.

The sheet systems are available in four sizes 15, 22, 30 and 42mm and the Self-tacking systems in 22 and 30 mm. System size selection is determined by boat size.

LINE MANAGEMENT

CLEATS

CLEATS

Seldén Cam cleats are made of carbon fibre reinforced polymer. This material is selected for its high resistance to friction heat. There is also an aluminium version of Cam cleat 38 available.

Seldén produces Cam cleats in two sizes, together with all necessary accessories for efficient line handling. Valley cleats are also available in various sizes and for a wealth of different functions.

SWIVELS

SWIVELS

The swivel range comprises deck swivels, mast swivels and eye swivels. The eye swivel features a unique combination of plain bearing (to obtain optimal friction reduction) and ball bearing (to improve stability).

The ten-step adjustment of the deck swivel is also unique, as are the horizontal angle adjustment and friction adjustment features.

DECK ORGANIZERS

Clean and tidy

Clean and tidy

Keep the deck tidy and lead the ropes back to the cockpit with deck organizers. The sheaves have polymer ball bearings absorbing side loads from a rope entering the organizer with a vertical angle. The result is low friction making hoisting and trimming of sails fast and easy. The organizers are made of glass fibre reinforced polymer and can be fitted to a slightly curved surface and even stacked on top of each other.
