Logo Lofrans
Lofrans was founded in 1966 in Monza and since the beginning has focused it’s attention on a single product range, the anchor windlass.

Vertical Windlasses

A Vertical anchor windlass features a vertical rotation in relation to the deck which allows a reduced volume above deck as the electric motor and the gear box are sitting in the chain locker.

Also keep in mind that the height between the top of the stacked chain and the underdeck must be 300 mm minimum in order to ensure a fast dropping of the chain in the locker and an optimum performance of the windlass.​
