Trawl Hanging Blocks/Sheaves

Our trawl hanging blocks are available with a choice of mild steel, hardened steel, or stainless steel sheave running on either bronze bushes or ball/roller bearings. Nylon sheaves are also available. The steel cages are galvanized and painted.

Trawl blocks are supplied with a tested eyebolt as standard. Other options available on request.

All eyebolts and sample of complete trawl-block are load tested to twice SWL. On request, individual blocks can be load-tested and a test certificate supplied. (at an additional cost.)
