Rod RiggingPrevalent in the marine industry for the past 20 years, high tensile rod has been used predominately as a reliable material for standing rigging and marine hardware supplying superyachts, raceboats, multihulls and small cruising yachts.

OYS rod is an austenitic, nitrogen strengthened steel providing a combination of high corrosion resistance and structural properties approximately twice the yield strength of comparable commercial metals such as 316 and 316L stainless steel.

Manufactured in cold drawn form, rod is available in coiled form (straightened and unstraightened) from -0003 to -0060, and in rod form from -0076 to -1100.

Ocean Yacht Systems uses a unique ‘cold head’ profile that creates an incredibly strong rod rigging system. The engineered profile of cold head allows the end of the rod to seat precisely into the end fittings creating a termination as strong as the rod itself.

If longevity and aesthetics are high on the design criteria then the Ocean Yacht Systems bespoke rod rigging should be used.
