The new quality brand for
premium anchor chains
Röttgers has been manufacturing quality chains for more than 100 years. However, 2021 marks a new milestone in our company history. We would like to present ROXMA, our own premium brand for quality anchor chains. Thanks to our many years of experience, we know that our customers need a 100% reliable chain. We assure you:
You can rely on ROXMA anchor chains.
Stainless steel ROXMA chains have reached new heights with regard to durability, tensile strength and corrosion resistance, and exceed all common standards by far.
What makes ROXMA better than the rest?
There are a large number of inferior anchor chains on the market.
How do I find the right chain? The price is a good indicator.
Cheap chains are usually of inferior quality and will most likely malfunction in rough seas, which means they are guaranteed to break. Unfortunately, even expensive chains often do not meet the quality expectations of their owners.
Our center of excellence for materials has been developing quality solutions for challenging customer requirements from the industry for some time now, and we have recently become a technological leader in the area of mechanical and plant engineering in the last few years as well.
Thanks to the combination of our technological know-how, 100 years of experience and startup mentality, we are now setting new standards at sea with ROXMA.
Which anchor chain is used for which purpose?
We produce our ROXMA anchor chains from high-quality European stainless steel for use in warmer waters.
We produce Grade 40 and Grade 70 galvanized anchor chains for use in colder waters.
Commitment to quality
Furthermore, we are one of very few manufacturers of anchor chains with an in-house salt spray chamber, where we put our ROXMA anchor chains through continuous corrosion resistance testing under extreme conditions for several months at a time.
The results of in-depth comparative testing conducted on our ROXMA anchor chain and a cheap stainless steel chain produced in Asia are available for download in PDF form.
Welding seam tears before the predetermined breaking point is reached
Welding seam remains intact; material breaks when severely overloaded
ROXMA chains break only when they are severely overloaded and stretched to the maximum.
The certificate of conformity confirms that our internal business structure and organization is in accordance with the international standard for quality management.
We are a manufacturer of stainless-steel/NIRO chains.
The H-seal (stamp) is a proof for the special quality of the chains.
Where can I purchase original ROXMA anchor chains?
We currently have a small, exclusive network of dealers, which is being continually expanded. At present, ROXMA anchor chains are available for purchase from:
We welcome inquiries from dealers, marinas and yacht builders. Please use our inquiry form for dealers or contact our sales staff directly for comprehensive advice.
If you as a yacht owner or skipper have the opportunity to install an anchor chain yourself, then please use the inquiry form as well.
You can rely on ROXMA anchor chains.
The new brand for premium anchor chains.
ROXMA ROXMA anchor chains are available
in dimensions from Ø3-18mm
ROXMA stainless steel anchor chains deliver a new level of durability,
tensile strength and corrosion resistance and far exceed all commonly
accepted standards. Due to the balanced microstructure of the duplex
steel, ROXMA anchor chains deliver a strong combination of strength
and corrosion resistance.
To ensure that they run cleanly in the winch, all ROXMA anchor chains
are precisely calibrated to a tenth of a millimeter. To protect them
against the rugged environment at sea, the chains receive a very
extensive surface treatment process as standard. This guarantees the
outstanding durability of ROXMA products.
No matter which material you select –
you can rely on ROXMA!
Hot dipped galvanized ROXMA anchor chains are ideal for use in colder
waters. The anchor chains are made out of carefully selected chain
steels and bent and welded using the latest machinery. We are thus
able to ensure the highest production quality. ROXMA chains are then
quenched and tempered in a modern and fully automated multipurpose
chamber furnace line. This targeted thermal treatment optimizes the
mechanical properties of the chains. In the final stage, ROXMA anchor
chains are given a clean and optimal galvanized coating.
We had almost expected it, now it is certain. The fair “boot 22”, which should take place from 22.1. – 30.1. was canceled. We would have liked to present ourselves at the fair for the first time and exhibit our anchor chains.
A look behind the scenes of the most modern production line for anchor chains in Europe. Our strongest anchor chains are bent, welded, stamped and calibrated on these machines.
As far as we know, we are the only manufacturer who can also process duplex steel with a diameter of 16mm automatically and with consistently high quality.
We at Röttgers Ketten are looking for practicing partners who put our ROXMA anchor chain through its paces in a long-term test on all the world’s oceans and report on it. You post regularly photos and videos of your journey, and report occasionally where and how you anchor. As a thank you we will provide you with a ROXMA anchor chain suitable for your ship, which you can keep after the voyage of course.
Interested? Then apply with a short video and tell us why you absolutely need a stainless ROXMA anchor chain.
