Hi-MOD Compression Fittings
is proud to introduce the Hi-MOD compression fittings, the latest
generation of mechanical fittings available in the US Market.
Engineered to improve on existing mechanical fittings, the unique
design of the Hi-Mod fitting achieves this goal. The Hi-MOD fittings
are co-manufactured by Hayn Marine and Petersen Stainless in the UK.
They are unique in a number of ways. The first is that the cone is
longer than comparable fittings currently available. This spreads
the load over a longer portion of the wire, as well as increases the
compressive forces inside the fitting. The fittings use a crown
thrust ring to assure even spacing of the wire around the cone. With
the use of this crown thrust ring, we do not need to bend the wire
around the top of the cone to achieve the proper seating depth of
the cone in the body. The combination of these features greatly
increases the fitting’s ability to handle fatigue, a critical
component of any rigging part. Without bending the end of the wire,
we are also able to greatly reduce the galling problem inherent in
these fittings. We have increased the number of slots on the cones
to allow for a more even transfer of the load throughout the wire.
The cone is also made from stainless steel, so it is not required to
replace the cone upon inspection and/or re-use. We do not recommend
the use of sealant in the fitting.
With the Hi-MOD mechanical fittings, ease of assembly, increased
fatigue resistance, and improved design are making these the most
talked about mechanical fitting on the market today
