Harken Access Rail Exceeds Updated EN795:2012 Regulations
Hydraulic Captive Reels
Redefining Load Management
The result of four years of intense development at Harken Italy’s dedicated facility, captive winches are offered with pulling loads of 1.5 to 50 tonnes and are available in both Electric and Hydraulic.
The Harken Captive Reel Winch has a large diameter hollow drum allowing high line lengths, combined with high load capacity, while reducing weight to the lightest on the market. The feeder screw ensures the line is loaded onto the drum in a neat, tight roll so that it pays in and out smoothly with complete control.
Designed for use with fiber ropes, it offers lighter and easier handling.
Self-lubricating lead screw and sheave allow line to lie smoothly on the drum, even when slack.
Precise gearing provides even line take-up and release.
Remotely control long lines.
The first 60 mm of the drum is knurled, increasing holding power of initial line wraps and reducing line needed for effective trimming. The feeder transmission features twin feeder screws to balance the load on the feeder sheave assembly. Double-screw design positions screws close to the drum, reducing winch size by 10%-20% over similarly configured winches. Automatic disc brake between motor and gearbox is locked unless system is activated.
Two inner magnetic switches factory set at the feeder’s stroke limits prevent overtravel. Two outer fail-safe limit switches automatically engage the brake. Using a synchronised transmission, four gears drive the twin feeder screws. Adjust line size by changing two gear sets on the motor end of the winch. The winch is driven by an industrial sealed hydraulic motor.
Winch frame and drum are 6061 Hardcoat anodized aluminum to reduce weight. Feeder screw nut and feeder skate are made of a self-lubricating composite. The gear cover is carbon fiber.
All parts connected to hydraulic or electric circuitry, screw bearings, and gear transmission are on motor side of winch for easy access. All bearings are sealed, and lubricated with grease. The main gearbox is sealed, and lubricated with oil.
Line exits from the winch are available in left or right configurations. Two-speed or variable-speed hydraulic motors available. Captives come in 1.5T, 3T, 6T, 9T, 12T, 16T, 18t and 25T MWL

Trolley and Rail Systems
Harken Industrial trolley and rail systems provide a simple, low-maintenance way to move loads smoothly. Trolleys feature recirculating ball bearings housed in strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum for dependable, low-friction linear travel.
Low Friction, Smooth Rolling
Harken Industrial rails and trolleys provide a low-friction rolling solution under both compression and tension loads.
Torlon® or Delrin® ball bearings reduce friction to move loads easily, and require no lubrication. Stainless wire guides keep ball bearings captive, allowing trolleys to be easily removed for maintenance.
Harken trolleys are designed with an open-ball race for easy maintenance. The rail can be bent to various radii, allowing the trolley to run freely.
Rails can be bent to suit various applications. Minor bends can be made when the rail is installed.
If the rail requires greater bend, Harken Industrial can provide horizontal, vertical, or compound curves to specification.
Contact Harken Industrial for more details.
Trolleys and Rails
Harken Industrial trolleys are available in a variety of sizes and configurations. View our dedicated trolleys page for further information.
The rail is a simple, strong, low-maintenance system on which the load travels. View our rails page for more details.
Harken Industrial trolley and rail systems can be used in a wide range of applications and industries, such as:
• Renewable energy
• Facilities management
• Vessel maintenance
• Material handling
• Utilities, oil & gas

Lightweight, Compact, Low-friction, Certified
Harken Industrial purchase systems increase operation strength, providing low-friction pulling power in a wide variety of pulling/lifting operations. Systems can be used on their own, or easily combined with an existing system for tensioning, deviation, or casualty transfer. Purchase systems come fully rigged with tamper-evident termination.
Simple to Use in Load-assist Applications
Harken Industrial purchase systems are used by emergency services and rescue personnel to help transfer loads and individuals from working ropes to alternates. The systems are also used to transfer loads in deviation, and to take the load when lifting inanimate objects.
Maintenance is Easy
To clean, simply flush pulleys with fresh water. As with all equipment, check regularly to make sure it is in good working order. Check rope for chafe and wear. Make sure tamper-evident seals are intact.
Delrin® ball bearings provide low-friction, easy rope release under load. Ball bearings are UV-stabilized for maximum protection.
Ball Bearing Cam Cleats
Harken ball bearing cam cleats hold rope securely and release easily under load. Multiple rows of ball bearings reduce friction. The cam’s V-shape guides rope for easy entry.
Purcahse systems are supplied prereeved and fully assembled. The securing knot is sealed to prevent irreparable damage to the system.
CE certified under EN 13157 (Machinery Directive). IN105 has a maximum rated load of 1.47 kN; IN2624 has a maximum rated load of 1.98 kN.
Polyester Rope and Safety Compliance
Purchase systems use polyester based rope in various sizes. The polyester braided covers are UV and abrasion resistant. Harken Industrial purchase systems are also serial numbered for full traceability. The 443.DRPS is supplied with an individual proof test certificate.

Davit Arm Systems
Designed to Withstand Demanding Conditions
Harken offers a range of winches to take the work out of load management. The winches handle rope diameters from 6 – 32 mm with loadings from 50 kg – 70 metric tons. Applications include emergency recovery, manual load handling, tripod applications, electric and manual davit arms, and certified personal hoisting. The range of power ratios helps to reduce fatigue and risk of injury when managing heavy loads.
Simple to use and Ideal for Moving Heavy Loads
Harken winches are used in a wide range of industries:
• Renewable energy
• Facilities management
• Utilities, oil & gas
Efficient and dependable, Radial Line® winches are powerful performers. The shaped drums feature diagonal ribs to maximize gripping power and reduce line wear. Lightweight high-strength bearings and bushings reduce friction under load, are corrosion resistant, and do not require lubrication.
Powered winches allow the operator to handle high loads with push-button control. Vertical or horizontal motors offer flexible mounting options.
High Power, Ultra Lightweight
Use when high load capacity and high strength-to-weight ratios are critical. The wide drums provide extra surface area to secure high-tech rope. Winches can be driven by electric or hydraulic motor or pedestal for power, or with a standard winch handle.
These compact, powerful winches redefine load management. The feeder screw ensures the line is loaded onto the drum smoothly, so it pays in and out with complete control.
Harken can supply manual winch handles, spare parts and servicing kits for the winch range making them easy to service and maintain.No need to send the parts back to the manufacturer.

Case Study – Superyacht Garage Storage
The yacht’s owner wanted to store multiple vessels, such as RIBs and jet skis in the yacht’s tightly-packed, low-ceilinged garage, but have the ability to launch them off a single platform or hoist.
Case Study – Davit Winch
Atlas carbon-fiber davits are designed to make light work of a variety of lifting tasks. These davits are rated to lift up to 500 kg (1102 lb), but are light enough to be removed by hand. The company’s requirement was for powered or manual winches that would protect the rope and maximize its lifespan during winching operations.
