*** NEWSFLASH ***
HCB Battens now in Palma Mallorca, Spain. As we all know Palma is fast becoming a hub for Super yachts and Grand Prix yachts in the Mediterranean. In response to this HCB have teamed up with A+ Rigging to hold stock of our battens in Palma to service the existing lofts and additional customers who would like to take advantage of this situation. For more information please contact Brad at firstname.lastname@example.org or Marko at email@example.com
DESIGNED FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE AND LOW WEIGHT.
Lighter so you go faster.
With a Grand Prix racing calibre, Our Hollow Composite Battens (HCB) offer the same strength and durability you know from carbon construction but are up to 15% lighter and thinner than other market-leading sail battens.
Smoother to protect your sails.
A seamless, smooth exterior finish and internal joins mean HCB sail battens reduce wear and tear on sails - saving substantially on maintenance and repair costs.
>>> BUILT FOR LONGEVITY.
FLAWLESS FINISH - THE PERFECT FIT.
Engineered to your sail designer's specifications, our method uses alloy female moulds: a ground-breaking technique in its application to sail battens that means the exterior of the batten has a flawless finish. Using an internal bladder to create vacuum pressure drives greater compaction, eliminates voids and produces a thinner product whilst retaining the key characteristics of strength, stiffness and durability. This is further reinforced by our use of internal joins - creating a visibly seamless, flush exterior for each sail batten regardless of the size. A maximised "snug fit" in batten pockets results in less batten movement within the pocket, significantly reducing chafe and wear on the sail. The life of the sail is then extended which can save huge costs in the long term on sail repair and maintenance.
