The system of recirculating ball bearing cars is designed for full batten mainsail. It helps to raise, lower and reef the sail easily. Thanks to Facnor’s design intelligence, the system can be installed easily, and does not require any modification to the original mast!
ADVANTAGES of the FACSLIDE+ BATTEN CAR SYSTEMS for FULL MAINSAILS :
⊕ Fitting to the mast without modification : tracks easily fixed with slugs
⊕ Strength : monobloc design of the car
⊕ Toggle with large articulation and fitting most of the batten boxes
⊕ The cars are supplied with Torlon® balls and safety clip device (FL10, FL20, FL30)
⊕ FR25x15, FR40 : flat and light tracks, hard anodizing (40 microns) after drilling,
> The tracks are easily fixed with slugs alongside the existing mast without unstepping Facslide+ tracks and slugs
> Compact & economical : Possibility of mixing the car models in order to lower the sail stack height when the cars are down (Facnor patent).
> Headboard cars can be fitted on the head board of the existing sail or simply on a ring.
> The intermediate cars are delivered with a “diabolo” which facilitates the passage of the pin in the webbing.
