New 20mm Ti3 On Block - Allen

Author: Allen Brothers   Date Posted:11 August 2021 

The range of soft attachment blocks is growing with the release of the new 20mm Ti3 block.

The A2020Ti3 has been developed by the Allen design team for the paragliding and kiting industries but the team believe it will also trickle down into the marine sector.

Graham Adams, Head of International Business Development, commented “The paragliding industry required a high performance, small and reliable soft attachment block. Unfortunately, our current 20mm Tii block didn’t cut it for them as they required something that was more suitable for attaching with webbing strap. So, we developed the A2020Ti3 to suit their needs. However, when testing the Ti3 we quickly realised the design was so much easier to splice and thread rope around.”

Featuring a wider opening at the top of the block and flatter sides has resulted in the A2020Ti3 being simpler to thread rope around. The block still fits in the same footprint as the older A2020Tii and makes use of the same three sheave options which are tried and tested across the 20mm range.
