BLA Trade Talk: Lewmar Delta and DTX anchors
Hold fast with Lewmar Delta and DTX anchors.
The original Delta design from Lewmar is recognised the world over as an outstanding anchor with exceptional holding power.
Manufactured to exacting standards, the Delta is constructed from high grade manganese steel giving it maximum tensile strength. The unique shank profile and ballasted tip plus low centre of gravity and self-righting geometry ensure that the Delta anchor will set immediately. The design profile and ballasted tip also means that the anchor self launches with ease.
The Delta’s consistent and reliable performance is backed by a lifetime guarantee against breakage. It has Lloyd’s Approval as a High Holding Power anchor and is specified as the primary anchor used by numerous national organisations worldwide.
The Lewmar DTX anchor fills the gap between the existing galvanised and stainless steel Delta anchors. Made from 316 grade stainless steel, the DTX anchors feature exceptional anti-corrosion performance and the enhanced aesthetics that stainless anchors offer.
Utilising lead ballast encapsulated within the tip of the anchor to achieve the perfect centre of gravity, the DTX offers the initial bite and holding reliability that users of Delta anchors have come to expect.
Every DTX anchor is certified to Lloyd's Ordinary Holding Power standard and is warranted for three years against breakage.
