Nomen Folding Cleat:

Function
The gentle locking of the cleat arms in the two end positions is produced by an elastic ball which is located between the two arms. It deforms to respond to tension.
Design
The folding mooring cleat from Nomen provides the benefits of flush and rigid cleats to aesthetic perfection.
Loose lines cannot get caught during manoeuvring.
The danger of injury at sea is reduced.
The cleat is easy to fit to the deck.
The patented folding mechanism with the simple elastic ball is fail-safe and lends a charm all of its own.
In 1998, the NOMEN cleat was honoured with the Federal Product Design Award, today called German Design Award. This competition is one of the most widely recognised international design awards, honouring first-rate entries in the field of product and communications design. Prizes will only be awarded to projects that truly represent pioneering contributions to the German and international design landscape.
NEW 2016 – We launch a new stainless steel version of the ORIGINAL NOMEN cleat made from 316L-grade stainless steel. The stainless cleats receive a handmade high gloss mirror polished surface which is manufactured in a complex grinding- and polishing process. See pictures on the left, bottom.

Nomen Clip Cleat:

Function
No stressing of moving parts
The cleat consists of a rigid central part which absorbs the pulling force of the mooring line. There are two moving elements mounted on the ends of the cleat which are held in the centre position by a spring mechanism. The end pieces always remain unstressed.
Unimpeded casting off is possible at all times. The movable end pieces readily move aside, or they snap into the open position in which they lie calmly on deck.
Design
Consistent safety on deck
– The new NOMEN cleat always remains closed, whether it is belayed or not. During belaying the soft moving ends give way readily. The line can simply be wound around the rigid part of the cleat without having to activate any mechanism. The round rotary end pieces keep the cleat firmly closed so no lines can get caught and nobody can be injured.
– The CLIP-cleat is available in stainless steel (polished) or in Aluminium (silver or black anodized).
– 2013 the CLIP-cleat won the DAME Award (category deck equipment, sails and rigging) DAME Award
– The NOMEN Clip-cleat is WINNER at the German Design Award 2018 which is one of the most widely recognised international design awards, honouring first-rate entries in the field of product and communications design. Prizes will only be awarded to projects that truly represent pioneering contributions to the German and international design landscape.

Nomen Fairlead:

Design & Function
The design of the Nomen fairlead follows the proven design of the NOMEN cleat. It is an elegantly bowed aluminium device inside which two polyamide rollers rotate on stainless steel axles. The closed and technically simple structure ensures that nothing can get caught up in the fairlead and that mooring lines are led securely and expediently from boat to land.
Special one-off designs for the toe rail
To ensure the overall harmony of boat and fairlead, we can integrate the NOMEN fairlead in the toe rail of your boat. To do this we coordinate our data with your yacht designer. We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Nomen open Fairlead:

Design & Function
The open NOMEN fairlead lifts lightly over the deck forming a gentle open-centred aluminium bow in proven NOMEN design. It has two internal polyamide guide pulleys pivoted on stainless steel shafts.
In contrast to the closed version, our open fairlead is not screwed into place from above, instead it has four threaded rods that are pushed through the deck and fastened with nuts from below. Not a screw in sight! The open NOMEN fairlead impresses with its simple elegance and can be used in two ways.
1. The rope is simply placed in the open central guide for quick and easy mooring.

2. There are two outer closed guides for secure mooring.
