The Nylacast Low Friction Chock Liner ® is world renowned for being an industry innovation proven to significantly increase mooring line life. The Low Friction Chock Liner ®, utilised on a variety of vessels from COTs, FPSOs to LNG Carriers and other ships, creates a vast amount of commercial value and improved health and safety conditions for the vessel builders, owners, operators and crew members.
The patented product works by utilising a Nylacast material with very low friction properties in order to line the often rough, worn, rusted chocks (or Panama Fairlead) on vessels, creating a harmonious relationship between the costly, critical mooring lines and the chock itself. This results in significant safety, cost and performance advantages.
Fundamentally, it also allows vessel operators to shift from traditional steel wire rope, to higher performing synthetic ropes such as HMPE (High Modulus Polyethylene).
The Nylacast Low Friction Chock Liner ® significantly reduces abrasion and tearing of the mooring line. In addition better equalisation of mooring loads is created which greatly reduces peak mooring loads, especially when in high swell. Elimination of any routine and costly maintenance is also delivered by the Nylacast Chock Liner ®.
Nylacast Chock Liner ® installation is a simple process using hand tools and requiring no hot work making fitment an easy low cost, low risk activity.
The Nylacast Chock Liner ® is available in custom sizes and specifications to suit new and existing vessels. For further details and to discuss your projects simply click here to contact our dedicated engineering team also available on +44 (0) 116 276 8558
