Barton launches SkyDock at METS
Barton Marine will be launching two products at next week’s Metstrade 2021; the Stanchion Bullseye and SkyDock are both designed to enhance boating experiences, on and off the water.
According to Barton, the new SkyDock is the ultimate roof space storage solution for loads up to 80kg/175lbs. Designed for use in any space with a ceiling height up to 4m/13ft, the SkyDock works in garages, sheds, barns and lofts to commercial uses in yards, marinas, yacht clubs and warehouses.
It smoothly lifts bulky and awkward objects or loads, out of the way, from the floor or roof of your car, to stow them up high until needed again. Ideal for dinghies, kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, camping equipment, roof boxes, bicycles, garden furniture, horse saddles, pallets of assorted bits and pieces and any kit that needs to be stored out of the way, but retrieved easily and smoothly when needed.
Available with a 3:1 purchase system for great value or a premium 4:1 system for effortless lifting power. Both come with a unique self-locking block, meaning loads can be raised by one person without stress. If the control line is released the locking block firmly holds the load, stopping items from falling. For ultimate security, a fixed wall cleat is supplied to tie off the line.
A video guide is available for installation assistance, and the clever design enables flexible installation of the fixed eyes to suit the layout of weight-bearing roof beams.
The new Stanchion Bullseye fits to the base of stanchions for smooth control of furling lines.
The contemporary design features a Dyneema-effect securing strap over the metal retaining rod, through-bolted onto a fully enclosed backing plate for a clean finish. Fitting stanchions up to 32mm, the Stanchion Bullseye has no moving parts so weight is kept to a minimum and no new holes are required in the deck.
The superior, super smooth, hard anodised finish on the high load eye provides low friction and excellent support for slick running lines and excellent abrasion resistance for long-term service life.
The new products are on display and presented from the 16 to 18 November, in Amsterdam on stand 01.479.
