Numerous application areas
Roxtec UG™ seals are ideal for cables and pipes entering buildings via concrete foundations. They provide excellent cable retention, eliminate flooding and prevent humidity from damaging equipment. You can use them in vaults, duct banks or cable trenches.
Adaptable and tailor-made solutions
Roxtec UG™ solutions are perfect for use around existing cables and pipes, and the smart design simplifies retrofit. The seals fit into the knock-out sleeve as well as in conduits and core drilled holes. The soft yet firm rubber adapts to uneven openings and ducts. Our openable seals do not suffer from failure in the same way as traditional methods do when the cables or pipes move and expand.
If you have specific needs or face challenges that require special Roxtec UG™ seals, our design and engineering team is ready to help you by creating tailor-made sealing solutions.
