How It Works

Assembly instructions for Roxtec sealing system - Multilingual version


Remove any dirt inside the frame

Lubricate the inside surfaces with Roxtec Lubricant, especially into the corners.

Adapt modules to cables or pipes by peeling off layers.

Achieve a 0.1-1.0 mm gap between the halves when held against the cable/pipe.

Lubricate all modules thoroughly, both the inside and outside surfaces.

Insert modules according to your installation plan. Seal cables/pipes at the bottom and put spare modules on top.

Insert a stayplate on top of every finished row of modules.

Fill up the packing space until one row is left.

Before inserting the final row, insert two stayplates.

Separate the two stayplates. Insert the final row between them.

Drop the upper stayplate on top of the modules.

Lubricate all sides of the wedge, except front and back. Turn it according to the markings and insert it in the top of the frame (standard position). Face with “Stayplate this side” must always face a stayplate.

Tighten the screws until full stop, approx 20 Nm (15 ft.lb.).

Attach the Wedge Clip to the bolts to check that the wedge is properly tightened.

Optional wedge positions (anywhere in frame).

Stayplate clips (d) and clamps (e) can be used to simplify horizontal assembly.

Note

  • Wait 24 hours or longer after installation before exposing the cables/pipes to strain or pressure.
  • Cables shall go straight through the frame.

 

Packing space

See illustrations above.
Frame sizes 2, 4, 6 and 8 accommodate these heights of modules: 60, 120, 180 and 240 mm.
See example for frame size 6: 180 mm can be the result of 4 rows of RM 40 and one of RM 20.
