Stainless Steel Trim Tabs

The Lectrotab stainless steel trim tab design provides unmatched strength and reliability. 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 and are available in standard finish (as shown), mirror finished stainless steel, or black powder coated stainless steel. Standard tabs are available in 9" (23cm) and 12" (30cm) chord lengths (chord is the length from the transom to the tab trailing edge) and in widths between 9" (23cm) and 48" (122cm). See specification chart for dimensional details. All tabs exceeding a 24" (61cm) width feature a 90 degree bent up trailing edge for additional strength. Edges can be turned up or down, made straight or tapered, and reinforced in any way. 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.
