5 reasons to seal your port with Roxtec cable and pipe seals

Published:

1. Watertight

As ports are in close correlation with the sea, high ground waters and raising sea levels affect the port infrastructure. Heavy rains, humidity and the salty air can all cause fatal problems near sensitive equipment. It is therefore crucial to properly seal cable and pipe penetrations to prevent costly downtime. Roxtec seals prevent humidity and water ingress and keep your site dry.

2. Pests/rodents

Substations powering the cranes and other sensitive equipment in the ports are areas where rats and rodents are commonly seen. They can chew on cables and cause costly repair work and lost revenue. Roxtec cable and pipe seals make sure the pests are not able to enter.

3. Fire protection

In any area with sensitive equipment, it is of high importance to protect the assets from fire and smoke. It is also important to prevent fire and smoke from spreading. Roxtec cable and pipe seals are certified for fire protection and prevent spoke from spreading.

4. Resistance over time – long term operational reliability

When building a new or upgrading a port, it is of high importance to properly seal for the future and to ensure safety throughout its lifecycle. Roxtec seals ensure long-term operational reliability and are openable to enable periodic opening and upgrades. They are also easy to inspect.

5. Certified safety solution

In all areas where people and goods are transported, quality and safety are of high importance. Roxtec holds tests and certificates for global coverage, including UL, FM and DNV, which simplifies design and compliance regardless of end-market destination.
