In Breskens, Hall Spars has three factory buildings equalling a combined size of 7600 M², and is fully optimized to accommodate large projects comfortably and efficiently.
The European factory contains a 43-meter autoclave built to Hall’s specifications, and it processes carbon under 6-bar pressure at a temperature of 121°C with all curing monitored and computer controlled. This autoclave was designed to create masts for the America’s Cup and to manufacture most masts in one piece, in one cure cycle.
The Hall team also has available a 60-meter paint booth, for mast painting. In-house painting requires minimal movement of large masts and allows close monitoring of finish quality.
