FACNOR FX Code Zero & Gennaker Furlers

Easily furl your Gennaker or Code Zero

Innovative continuous line furling systems make code zero and gennaker deployment and dousing extremely easy. These ultralight and compact furlers are easy to install and store and are also only half the weight of a standard gennaker furler. Systems consist of two components: one flat continuous line drum and one head swivel. The flat drum functions like a sheave to eliminate the hassle of furling line overrides. The drum's low-profile design allows for maximum luff while the large diameter increases furling power. Sail deployment is a simple matter of placing the furling line in the drum, attaching the drum to the tack (made easy with the supplied quick-connect shackle), attaching the halyard, hoisting and then unfurling the sail. Optional blocks (offered below) create a 2:1 mechanical advantage when hoisting. NOTE: Installation of a captive "torque rope" (not supplied) along the sail's luff is required.

  • Attachment method: FX900, FX1500, FX2500, FX4500: Snap Shackle; FX7000, FX12000: Quick-Release "D"
