Magnets for pilot ladders (for clamping, positioning and holding)
PTR-Holland Hull Magnet has been specially developed to make life safer for sea harbour pilots by providing removable anchor points for the ladder on the ship’s side.
These Hull Magnets, designed to withstand aggressive marine environments, have no internal moving parts or entry points for sea water – a natural enemy of neodymium magnet material.
Powder-coating in safety yellow for high visibility, and resin encapsulation of magnetic elements makes the product seaworthy.
In addition they are lightweight at around 3 kgs, yet immensely strong, providing more than 800 kgs of clamping force even through many layers of paint and salt scale and grime on a ship’s hull. A delrin roller makes the Hull Magnet simple to attach and release.
Hull magnets are also used to anchor floating spill booms and maintenance vessels and are also known as Boom Magnets.
