The lab project LLBB, Landeslabor Berlin-Brandenburg, in Germany, needed completely gas-tight cable and pipe penetrations. The best decision was to specify Roxtec seals as a standard solution.
“The cooperation with Roxtec has been pleasant, professional and solution-orientated. We are very confident with the product and with the support during the design phase and onsite. We would recommend Roxtec anytime,” says Thomas Vogler, construction supervisor of Caverion Deutschland.
The bi-state laboratory will conduct analyses of foods, drugs, chemicals and animal epidemics. It is located in a dynamic area where around 100 companies and research institutes are already active.
Completely sealed and good-looking
The containment room demands for protection made Roxtec the best solution for the design firm Weber & Partner to specify. Instead of using stiff, cracking compounds or numerous cable glands of varying sizes, they now benefit from one certified and flexible system that allows for easy installation and reinstallation of cables and pipes. Roxtec products maintain gas-tightness for decades and allow for additional cables or pipe in the future.
“The training that Roxtec provided for the installation staff was excellent and the overall appearance of the partitions after the installations is very good. The possibility for retrofit was another decisive point for us to choose Roxtec as single supplier of cable and pipe transits,” says Thomas Vogler.
Tailor-made sealing solutions
Roxtec sealing experts were present onsite in order to provide the best possible solutions. Roxtec delivered the gas-tight seals on time and collaborated with the design firm to provide customized versions of Roxtec GH transits and RS seals with flange plates in AISI316 stainless steel.
