Spreading Safety Since 1990
Roxtec was founded in Sweden after the invention of Multidiameter™, a solution for adaptability to cables and pipes of different sizes based on modules with removable layers. It revolutionized the cable routing and pipe installation processes.
We rapidly became the world-leading supplier of modular-based seals. Today, we provide sealing solutions for a wide range of applications within many different industries. Roxtec safety products are found on land, at sea and underground.
