custom trim tabs

Lectrotab custom stainless steel trim tabs offer customers 90° straight or 30° taper bent edges in several finishes including powder coated and mirror. All stainless steel tabs are fabricated with a continuous rolled and pinned hinge. This design eliminates the need for welding. The tabs are made of corrosion resistant 12 gauge, 304 stainless steel. Custom tabs are available in 6" (15cm), 9" (23cm), 12" (30cm) and 18" (46cm) chord lengths (chord is the length from the transom to the tab trailing edge) and in a variety of widths. See specification chart for dimensional details. For galvanic protection, pre-installed zinc anodes are also available.

Lectrotab specializes in providing customized tab designs. Please contact Lectrotab for your specific tab needs.
