BLUEWAVE RIGGING HARDWARE A/S are a third generation, family owned, manufacturing business, founded in 1932, operating from their facility in Haderslev, Denmark.

The BLUEWAVE team has a marine focus with 30 plus dedicated and skilled employees, some with over 40 years of experience in the field.

BLUEWAVE are currently among the top three largest manufacturers of high quality, stainless steel rigging hardware in the world.

The BLUEWAVE range has developed from shackles and thimbles to include stainless steel wire fittings from 2mm-36mm diameter and a comprehensive rod rigging program.

BLUEWAVE has developed a world-renowned brand name through consistent investment in high tech production machinery in order to satisfy the ever involving marine industry requirements.

BLUEWAVE apply the principles of efficient production, good design, low weight and optimal strength to all their products.

BLUEWAVE test all their stainless steel raw material to ensure that it has the highest possible corrosion resistance compatible withe marine environment:

Stainless Steel Grades and Certificates - PREN Pitting Resistance Equivalent PREN =% Cr + ( % Mo x 3,3 ) + ( % N x 16 )

PREN is a guideline formula for calculating the properties of stainless steel and the resist ance against pitting. Molybdenum, and Nitrogen content have a considerable effect on stainless steel corrosion resistance.

BLUEWAVE have invested in an X-ray gun to test the stainless raw material raw materials, to ensure that the desired quality and corrosion resistance is achieved.
