Tuphblox are back

Author: Barton Marine   Date Posted:24 July 2023 

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.

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.

Tuphblox are coming back

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.

They are ideal for classic yachts up to 50ft with sheave sizes between 8-16mm and 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.

They will be available from Barton distributors like DeckHardware and dealers in the near future.
