Use digital tools to control your mechanical seals. The Roxtec software suite simplifies everything from design and logistics through to mandatory documentation. The benefits are instant and sustainable.
The set of interlinked tools is useful for anyone working with sealing solutions for cables and pipes. You can select and purchase the right seals, and report transit status in accordance with official standards and regulations. Tailor your material supply, minimize waste and ensure safe operations.
Cut costs and eliminate your problems
We create digital tools to help you handle daily tasks, and we do it using both our extensive knowledge in sealing and our long experience of cooperation with customers in the field. It is great to be able to use our innovative strength to help you cut costs and overcome common onsite issues.
- Execute design process changes with ease
- Minimize material waste caused by poor planning
- Detect cables pulled through the wrong openings (to be released in 2020)
Simplify lifecycle management
Each transit gets a unique ID, which enables tracking and quality assurance in every detail. This also paves the way for upcoming features. Imagine ordering and getting everything you need to fill an opening for cables and pipes delivered as a ready-made kit, at the right time to the correct location, with zero risk of material waste. Then read the QR code on the material and obtain the installation instructions for exactly this kit and opening. The set of digital tools will be a guarantee for full control – from the design phase through to quality inspection.
Here are the tools that form the complete Roxtec software suite:
For the design, specification and purchase phases:
Roxtec Transit Designer™
There are already more than 30,000 users around the world that benefit from this free, online engineering tool. Use it to save time and reduce risk when designing multi-cable and pipe transits. You get help to select the right sealing solution according to industry project, structure, application and requirements via smart filters. Just enter inputs, such as cable schedule, sealing requirements and installation preferences, and receive manufacturer-approved outputs, such as drawings and a BOM, Bill of Material, for precise specification, ordering and installation details.
This proven, amazing tool allows you to design hundreds of cable and pipe transits in just a few minutes. It simplifies global collaboration as you can share your work with project teams anywhere in the world. As registered Roxtec E-commerce customer, you can even purchase seals directly via the tool. This makes it easy for you to control that the purchase order matches the Bill of Material.

For the construction, logistics and commissioning phases:
Roxtec Transit Build™
Do you work with quality assurance and production management? Use this tool to manage and document the use of cable and pipe seals during the construction process. Automatically, it gives you a view of the status of each transit, in either a list view or a floor plan view, so you can follow the project in detail. It generates project progress reports and helps you transfer the as-built information back into Roxtec Transit Designer™ as a photo, and very soon with extended data. Your engineering department thereby receives confirmation live from the construction site showing that the final design is used. It will also be possible to approve an onsite rearrangement via the tool.
Always up to date
An upcoming feature will make sure that any change in the cable list in Roxtec Transit Designer™ is pushed through in real time, so the latest information is always available for the installers. Picking lists for material can be very detailed and soon enable arrivals from the warehouse in the form of pre-configured sealing kits to a specified location. This is excellent for minimizing waste. Another way of increasing efficiency and minimizing unnecessary travel is letting quality control staff verify remotely when there are enough cable and pipe seals installed to start the inspection work.
Roxtec Transit Build™ as app
Use the app version if you work onsite with quality assurance, or if you are project manager, installer or maintenance contractor. It provides practically the same features as Roxtec Transit Build™:
- Monitor each seal
- Take action on errors
- Rest assured that the changes you report will be automatically transferred to the digital tools used by the designers or production managers
The app has the ability to work offline and synchronize information on status changes as soon as there is network access.
Installers have the latest design and packing plan in their devices and can report work tasks as done. The updated as-built information returns to the engineers with photos linked to the specific seal. The app will in the near future even be equipped with a packing plan editor so that you can propose rearrangements based on field insights or actual circumstances to the design team. With the right information, such as the total BOM for the current work order, every installer will bring only the right components to site. This opens for tremendous improvements in logistics and a significant reduction of material waste.
For the operations and product life phases:
Roxtec Transit Registry™ (also in app version)
The registry is your digital transit management system, developed to enable systemized control, documentation and tracking of all transits through the entire lifecycle of your assets. It is your full list of all cable and pipe transits in a project, for example onboard an offshore unit or a vessel, or in any type of building or facility on land. You can also see all transits in a floor plan view. Use the transit management system to keep relevant information on each transit installation accessible. With valid real time information on the status of every cable and pipe seal, you ensure a high safety level.
Unique transit ID
There are two alternative ways for you to set up this registry for quality assurance:
A) You can use the transit inspection services we offer. In that case, you let our experienced experts ID mark your cable and pipe transits. They use our special tool Roxtec Transit Inspector, which transfers information to the tools that you will use to manage your transits.
B) You can have your own team applying the ID tags on the cable and pipe transits and use the app version of Roxtec Transit Registry™ to enter the information into the registry and the other tools. As you can see, the app versions are ideal both during construction and for long-term maintenance.
Either way, when this is done each transit has a unique ID, with a number and an optional photograph. You can easily locate it, read its activity log and check its safety status. You can:
- Change status
- Add comments
- Upload documents
- Trace who has opened and closed a transit
- Extract the information for communication with colleagues or contractors
The reports serve also if classification societies request information during surveys. Use the registry to monitor transit installation quality over time, from initial installations to the latest upgrades and additions of cables, pipes and equipment.
Everything in order
Thanks to the connection to the other tools, such as Roxtec Transit Designer™, Roxtec Transit Inspector and the app versions, the registry is constantly updated. It is fully in line with each transit log, and packing changes made onsite immediately overrule former ones, once approved. The practical transit activity log includes vital documents such as drawings, pictures, product data, installation instructions and certificates.

The Roxtec Guard is your tool to make transits talk. Thanks to a built-in digital functionality and electronic sensors in each cable and pipe seal, important information can be gathered and sent directly to the Roxtec Transit Registry™. The transit can report about more than its current status and whether it is open, closed or ready for inspection or maintenance. It can, for example, log the working temperature in the area or ring the alarm bell.
The software suite is complete – but Roxtec continues to develop features and digital services to add to the platform. The vision includes installation instructions via AR glasses in the installer’s hardhat.
