Our mooring system pushes the boundaries of innovation and design of marine hardware. We conceived a new kind of pop-up cleat, combining stylish design, functional shape, high strength and cutting-edge technology.

The curved shape and smooth edges allow an easy clamp of the mooring line, avoiding rope consumption. It means no more ropes damaged by sharp edges. The top part of the cleat is made of light carbon fibre, by innovative SMC moulding technology.
All the fittings and deck base are made of CNC machined titanium, to offer the best strength, lightness and keep it totally free from corrosion. Our partner for the supply of Titanium is Titanium International Group, leader in the distribution of Titanium and Aerospace Materials on the Italian market and one of the most qualified players in the international scene. This cleat is the stronger-one and lighter-one on the market (compared with others of the same size). You can install this cleat on every kind of deck surface, composite, GRP, aluminium, steel, or wood. It is easy to install onboard and does not require drainage due to the O-ring seal between the stem and the cylinder.

What about SMC moulding and what’s the difference from regular carbon fibre:
Typically, carbon fibre is made usable by laying it up in sheet form and infusing it with resin. There are some different manufacturing methods, like resin infusion and oven cured prepreg; all the conventional methods require hours of curing into the mould to get the final product.
Our SMC moulding carbon is provided by CPC Group from Modena, a European leader in composites and SMC moulding for the premium automotive brands. It is a method of moulding where a sheet of randomly placed carbon fibre strands (or GRP, or Kevlar) and epoxy resin compound, is placed into a preheated mould, and when the mould is closed the material is squeezed under very high pressure by vertical press. The process is also called “compression moulding”. The product is “cured” inside the mould and the timing depends on the thickness of the material. When you remove the product from the mould, it is ready and the mould can be reloaded again for the following moulding. You get the product in a few minutes instead of hours This is an industrial process that allows to produce a high volume of parts with strong mechanical features and cost-effectiveness.
