PTR-Holland hull, pilot ladder & spill boom magnet
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.
We are the originator of the long-established (1984) PTR Holland® clamping system used on our wide range of high quality MED/steering wheel by bureau veritas approved pilot and embarkation ladders. PTR Holland® are aware that certain parties have copied and supply, low-quality imitations of our rope ladders through several ship-chandlers in Rotterdam, Houston, Greece and in Turkey.
If you have recently taken delivery of a rope ladder we strongly recommend that you confirm that you have received an original product which originated from PTR HOLLAND GROUP. If not, we respectfully suggest that it be returned for replacement with an real approved ladder. Equally we would be pleased to provide an offer for a pilot or embarkation ladder, that is guaranteed as authentic and which fully complies with the relevant regulations. We have production plants in Rotterdam, Singapore and the UAE. All other worldwide destinations will be supplied by airfreight delivery within 48 hours available.
