INTRODUCTION
 
Furlex for carefree Sailing
 
The Furlex Jib furling and reefing system was first introduced in 1983. The basic concept was not new, but Furlex broke new ground with innovative design, attention to detail, good value and worldwide service backup. Today, Furlex is the world market leader, and a normal feature on any well equipped yacht.

Impressive appearance
 

Furlex, with its attractive combination of aluminum composite and stainless steel, adds more than a touch of style to any yacht. The smooth lines are not only pleasing to the eye, they also make Furlex very durable and easy on the sail and on the sailor.

 
Correctly specified for your yacht
 

Choosing the right size and type of jib furling and reefing system is vital to ensure maximum performance and service life. The majority of Furlex systems installed in the early 80s are still operating reliable

today, proof of the durability of the design. It also says a great deal about how carefully Seldén evaluates which particular Furlex will best suit your yacht. To do this we examine the righting moment of the yacht (a function of displacement, ballast, beam and draft). in relation to the type of rig.

Unique internal mechanism
 
Seldén’s unique load distributor in the halyard swivel incorporates our own patented technology for reducing rolling resistance, friction and bearing loads. The loads are distributed across the ball races as the halyard load changes position. This innovative solution improves furling and reefing, and also increases the service life of the swivel. The basic design of the load distributor remains unchanged and unchallenged since it was first patented worldwide in 1983.
