NITRONIC 50 ROD
Rod rigging in Nitronic 50 has become widely accepted both by racing boats and cruising boats alike. Rod rigging offers high strength, low windage and low stretch as well as long life due to unmatched corrosion resistance.
Serviceability problems are now a thing of the past with riggers all over the world having cold heading presses available for service work. The Rig Shop has a fully portable press and so we can build rigging to order in our shop or we can make repairs and alterations on site.
We only use premium quality Nitronic 50 rod. Beware of cheap stainless steel rods that will be weaker and not last as long. Rod rigging is ideal for use with furlers where its smaller diameter and smooth finish make for ease of use and low corrosion, which is often a problem with wires hidden inside the furler itself.
Rod connection requires a special ‘Cold Heading” system, using a pressure heading system. These can be shop or on site fitted by arrangement.
