The Company

Sailtek supplies Ronstan Hardware; Blocks and Traveller systems, Deck Hardware, Andersen Winches, Constrictor rope clutches and Batten cars( formerly Frederiksen ) for fully batten mainsails and soft sails.

It is the official distributor in UK and Ireland for Ronstan Batten and Ballslide systems. The patented Ronstan Ballslide Batten system uses the existing luff groove of the mast, so that no track needs to be installed. Ballslide cars have captive ball bearings for free running performance and can be easily loaded and unloaded from the mast when fitting or removing the mainsail.

Ronstan hardware and Batten Systems is the one choosen by the professionals, used by the majority of boats in Volvo and Vendee Globe races.

Technical advice on sailboat hardware, big boat fit-outs and special projects is available from Jason Belben an ex Olympiad and former employee of Ronstan and Frederiksen with 17 years of experience.
