Barton Marine announces impressive product line-up for Seawork International 2018

3-5 July 2018| SB69

Leading global supplier of marine deck hardware, Barton Marine, announces its impressive product line-up for Seawork International, and is set to help visitors at the show solve their commercial marine requirements.

Suzanne Blaustone, CEO, comments,  “While many people know Barton Marine for our extensive array of leisure marine products, Seawork is an opportunity to showcase our growing range of commerical and industrial products. Manufactured in the UK, our line of standard or bespoke track systems and traveller cars can be used for easy movement of commercial or industrial gear, sliding roofs or deployment of loads on deck.  Special programs with commerical marine partners have led to the development of man overboard systems, sliding systems for roofing and more recently, the smooth launch and recovery of ribs and work boats at sea.”

Barton Marine’s versatile track and traveller car systems will be on display, showcasing their benefits for use on commercial vessels. These marine-grade aluminium extruded tracks and sliding car systems provide lightweight and high load bearing solutions, and are available for individual customisation. Barton has specific expertise in curving track to specification making them perfect for refits, special design applications for OEM uses, and for replacing existing tracking systems. From detailed drawings, Barton’s track professionals can deliver a bespoke curved track of up to five metres in length.  As well as producing permanently fixed systems, Barton Marine can also increase functionality and convenience with its removable track brackets, allowing track to be stowed away neatly when not required.

Carrying the CE quality assurance stamp, the Industrial Snatch Blocks are easy to employ in a variety of general industrial maritime settings and are the perfect choice for those who need pulley blocks offering simplicity and confidence, for moving and lifting loads from 200kg to 350kg.

New to the market in 2017, Barton Marine’s CE certified Block on a Strop was developed for use on work boats, marinas, factories, or construction sites – any place where mobility of equipment for lifting and moving loads is required.  Designed with a durable series seven precision ball bearing sheave block incorporated with a professionally spliced dyneema strop, this multifunctional block functions as a portable lifting device for a range of equipment, loads and tools.  With the ability to attach the dyneema strop to a pole, bar, or other robust structure, the device can be easily installed, removed, and relocated when necessary. This helps reduce the health and safety risks associated with lifting heavy loads for marina operatives, scaffolders and builders alike.

Suzanne continues, “As well as welcoming both new and existing customers to our stand, SB69, Barton Marine is sponsoring the 4th of July band, “The Winklepickers” at the Waterfront Saloon.  There will be a cardboard boat regatta to keep everyone amused during live music and American themed Bar and dockside BBQ cookout on Wednesday 4th of July from 5pm – 8pm. We hope to see many of you there.”

Barton is also sponsoring the first ever Women in Marine reception to be held at Seawork on 4 July from 3pm to 4pm. The reception will allow women in the commercial and workboat sectors of the marine industry to meet each other for networking and hear the comments of several speakers who will provide insight into their job roles.

Barton Marine will also be showcasing other products from its range of industrial and commerical equipment including: the ClamSeal for the immediate repair of inflatables; LineTamers for safely securing and organising ropes and articles on board; Barton’s EasySplice rope splicer; and VuPlex plastic cleaner, polisher and protector for instrument panels, clear windows and multiple plastic substrates. The Swobbit line of high performance poles and brushes and cleaning devices will also be on display.

The products are available from Barton Marine’s global network of distributors and chandleries. For further information, please visit: www.bartonmarine.com.
