Harken Industrial’s sailing heritage is key to our load-handling and rope-access innovations. Our philosophy has always been simple: strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant products with less friction are better. This philosophy continues as we develop products for the industrial sector. Fibrous rope is rapidly replacing steel wire in both the marine and industrial industries. It is 15 times stronger than steel wire by weight and it doesn’t rust. Harken Industrial’s kindred approach to taking the weight, friction, and effort out of operations means equipment is more mobile, workers are safer and more agile. Companies can complete jobs with smaller teams. These advantages translate into huge safety increases and major benefits to the bottom line for industrial riggers and the commercial marine industries. Headquartered in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, Harken manufactures in the USA and Italy. Its distribution network includes offices in 48 countries.
The Access Rail is designed for use as an adjustable anchorage point for rope access and fall arrest. It provides the operator with freedom of linear movement at height and the ability to lock into position while working.
Lightweight trolleys are constructed of strong, one-piece hardcoat or clear-anodized aluminum to resist corrosion. An adjustable pinstop allows low-maintenance ball bearing trolleys to be moved along the rail and then locked securely into a new position. The Access Rail can be mounted in 3 (three) horizontal planes. A wheel toggle attachment can realize angles of 90 degrees for greater maneuverability.

Independently tested and CE certified under EN795.2012 Type B/D, ANSI Z359,OSHA compliant.
Harken Oceanic Cable blocks are used on research vessels to safely lead data cable and towed objects overboard. At only 19.3 kg (42.5 lb), the 500 mm (19.7?) sheave diameter block is light enough to align to the load, optimizing cable tracking. The block’s large open center moves the center of gravity toward the shackle, further improving load alignment.
The sheave’s lightweight, self-lubricating nylon material has high mechanical stiffness, resists static electricity, and has excellent wear resistance. Plastic isolators minimize corrosion between aluminum and stainless steel. Linear speed is 60 m/min (196 ft/min).

Work Securely and Safely
The Tight Radius (TR31) rail and trolley system is designed to work as an adjustable anchorage point for fall restraint on marine vessels. Rails are composed of straight, curved, and 200 mm radiused bends that change direction in both horizontal and vertical planes, allowing trolleys to run exceptionally smoothly around very tight radii and joints.
The TR31 continuous rail and trolley system allows a fully-harnessed crew member, safely tethered to the trolley, to move freely along the rail during inspection and maintenance, or when assisting in pilot transfer. Rails can be either surface or stanchion mounted and are designed so the user never has to unhook and rehook the tether as he moves around the deck.
This man-riding, portable capstan winch is designed for confined-space retrieval or for use with davit systems using an unlimited length of fibrous rope. The captive head allows the winch to be used safely and keeps the rope from accidentally releasing. The LokHead is easy to rig, efficient, and makes the most of the operator’s strength. It offers a 40:1 power ratio with 2 gears:low-load, high line speed; high load, low line speed. A reliable braking system controls descent.
The self-tailing LokHead can be incorporated into a tripod design without significantly increasing the overall weight. Mounting plate and tripod adapter are also available.
The Harken PowerSeat is a sit-on powered ascender that is designed to stay in an upright position, conserving worker energy and allowing precise positioning for hull inspection and maintenance on large vessels. The unit is operated using a fail-safe deadman’s switch to control ascent speed. A braking system controls descent and provides workers protection against free-falls. The PowerSeat is powered by gasoline, electric, or battery, with ascent speed up to 15 m/min (49.2ft/min) depending on type. It is CE certified to the Machinery Directive and independently verified by Bureau Veritas.
SBL Snatch pulleys are the ultimate in power-to-weight efficiency, maximizing the benefits of fiber rope within a safer, more ergonomic working environment. Weighing less than 25% of comparable pulleys, they make light work of rigging and deployment. Even the largest pulley, with a breaking load of 95000 kg (21000 lb), weighs only 22.5 kg (50 lb). Hardcoat-anodized aluminum sheaves are highly corrosion resistant. They run on high-efficiency composite bearings reducing rope wear. Side-opening plates allow the pulleys to be rigged easily.
Use SBL Snatch pulleys for towing, mooring, pulling, and lifting.
Three sizes: 12T, 25T, 50T; rope diameter up to 25 mm (1")
The Utility Snatch pulley features a low-friction roller/ball bearing sheave and unique push-button latch, making it an ideal workhorse for temporary rigging. The opening sideplate allows rope to be quickly inserted or removed without reeving. The swivel eye allows complete articulation when used with connectors and slings. The Utility Snatch pulley is CE certified under EN13157 (Machinery Directive).
Maximum rated load: 4.9 kN; Rope diameter: 16 mm
