Allen are pleased to announce a new range of plain bearing blocks which use modern design and state of the art manufacturing to ensure a more eco-friendly product, delivering enhanced performance.

The new range will be made using 100% recycled plastics as well as using 20% less material than the previous version. Using the outer cheek and ultra-strap from the 20 and 30mm dynamic range allows us to manufacture the new plain bearing blocks more efficiently. This will help to reduce the long-term impact of plastics and un-recyclable materials on the environment.

The new range of plain bearing blocks will also feature a grey sheave to differentiate them from the existing dynamic range, which has black sheaves.

Plain bearing blocks offer great static loading capabilities at a low weight and cost. This makes them perfect for take-up systems or applications that don't require high dynamic performance.
