Hooks, rollers, fairleads and guides, gangways,valves, towpins… all you should need at the sea.
HOOKS AND ROLLERS
Towing equipment has played an important part in FERRI’s 50 years history. We have a complete range of towing hooks and rings, rollers and forks, adapted to the operative needs and structural requirements of any vessel. Our standard towing hooks are disc-type and range from 4 to 500 tons. We also offer another range of hooks with hydraulic resetting. These hooks are more compact, saving precious desk space and reducing the need for crew to set them.
Both types of hook offer a series of options such as fixing to the vessel, assisted release systems, automatic release at list limit etc. The range of rollers with forks range up to 500t cable tension. They can be adapted to greater requirements, forms and special sizes. More than 400 vessels successfully employ FERRI towing equipment.

FAIRLEADS AND GUIDES
We have a long experience with this type of equipment. They have been offered by Ferri since more than 50 years ago. From standard equipment to made-to-measure, any type of blocks or snatch-blocks for any use, even under water.
We manufacture fairleads for chains and hawsers with swinging headstocks mounted on bearings or bushes. All FERRI blocks have conical roller bearings specific to the great loads to which they will be submitted. The bearing protection system impedes the entry of water while allowing the escape of gases, thereby guaranteeing a perfect seal. Furthermore, the necks of the pulleys are subjected to a fully automatized process of hardening by electric induction to the values set by the cable manufacturers. These necks are inspected and submitted to tests of hardness.
They have trusted us:
FAIRLEADS AND GUIDES FOR ANCHORS
Simon Stevin (Belgium)
Vessel being built
FUNCTION: Anchor fairleads and guides both ahead with 440t SWL and astern with up to 220t.
CONTRIBUTION: The bow fairleads have been integrated within their bases so as to minimize occupying desk space and to guide the chains optimally and safely.
BLOCKS FOR ALL FISHING NEEDS
More than 500 vessels successfully employ this equipment: fleets of the largest tuna fishing vessels around the world; the most powerful trawlers in Northern Europe, and fishing boats of all types on all continents.
With the integration of Talleres Carral in Industrias FERRI in 2013, Carral blocks joined FERRI blocks. CARRAL blocks are the standard of the Spanish trawler fleet.
Equipment for access or transfer. Custom-made for each vessel taking into account space, placement, maneuverability, size, and performance in accordance with working conditions.
