Barton’s Tuphblox range will be manufactured using real OEM Tufnol® for maximum performance.
Over time it has been improved as a synthetic resin bonded fabric construction material to become a mainstay in marine applications alongside industrial applications for its high strength, low weight, and conductivity properties.
Combined with 316 marine grade stainless steel and brass bearings, Barton’s high strength Tuphblox will be ultra-durable, free running and highly corrosion resistant.
Ideal for classic yachts up to 50ft with sheave sizes between 8-16mm, Tuphblox will provide original aesthetics, superior UV resistance and maximum service life. Tufnol® blocks are also ideal for use aboard commercial vessels and in general industry where practicality, strength and durability are key.
Tuphblox are back
We (Barton Marine) are bringing back the original Tufnol® Blocks range for 2023. We first manufactured them in 1948 and they built a huge following.
