New Product Range

DB Deck Organisers

Introducing the new range of DB Deck Organisers designed to lead or divert control lines and halyards with minimal friction.

The Allen DB deck organiser range is available in 20, 30 and 40mm sheave sizes. All feature two lightweight aluminium cheeks, three dynamic bearing sheaves, a becket and nuts and bolts.

The 20mm DB deck organiser is the smallest ball bearing deck organiser available on the market making it perfect for use in areas where size and weight limitations are a factor.

Easily stacked and with three sheaves and one becket, the DB deck organisers allow for a wide range of rigging options. When stacked the upper organiser is rated to two-thirds of the max working and breaking load. The becket can also be used as a plain bearing sheave, ideal for higher loading static lines.

30mm deck organiser with rope

DB stands for Dynamic Bearing, which is the Allen patented bearing system. The dynamic bearing system features twin rows of stainless-steel ball bearings running on a stainless-steel axle. This ball-bearing technology offers high rolling speeds with minimal friction, resulting in fast and smooth running for rope around the sheave.

Dynamic bearing technology lends itself to use in applications which require fast sheave movement, this makes the DB deck organiser range perfect for halyard or control line systems on Sportsboats up to 28ft. The DB deck organiser range is also a great choice for dinghies where control lines need to be run along the deck or be diverted from the mast base.  

We have rated the DB deck organiser range based on a 30-degree turning angle around the sheave. A 30-degree turn on a sheave will have a load factor of 50% of the line load. In comparison, a single block is load rated to an angle of deflection of 180-degrees, which has a load factor of 200% of the line load.
