EMKA Rail industry sections protect edges, protect people - and sealing profiles for specialist rail applications

EMKA extruded sections for specialist rail applications are available as ex-stock standard profiles or to custom requirements to suit new design criteria. A full range is available in fire resistant grade materials to suit applications on carriages and trackside.

Edge Protectors – protect edges, protect people

EMKA extruded edge protectors are now offered in a wide range of sizes using spring steel spines within PVC or EPDM sheaths, so ensuring a firm grip. We are also pleased to announce sections in fire grade EPDM.

Self-locking “U” sections are ideal for covering of potentially sharp metal or glass fibre edges which may otherwise present a hazard to people on furniture or equipment. Typically, shelving, doors or similar may require safety sheathing or a form of bumper protection which can be provided by these purpose-designed, ex-stock sections.

It has been noticed that edge protectors are often called for elsewhere for purely cosmetic purposes where they serve to tidy up otherwise unsightly edges or to protect cut edges from environmental factors – or from impact damage in some situations.

For other requirements in addition to carrying comprehensive UK stock EMKA also offer a custom design service on extruded section products. Contact us to specify your custom needs.

EMKA special sealing profiles for specialist situations – rail, road, off-road, HVAC

Special sealing profiles for specialist situations – rail, road, off-road, HVAC etc.

EMKA are pleased to offer specialist sealing profiles – and a custom design service for special applications coupled with experienced factory based design expertise – especially where IP ratings of up to IP66 are required.

Specialist gasket sections are offered in flame retardant, low smoke, low tox materials compliant to relevant standards while extruded gaskets for enclosures and other purposes are available in self-adhesive, self-grip (clip-on), channel fixing and window type (with expansion insert).

The range includes EPDM, NBR, CR, PVC and silicone, as well as fire protection specifications and many with EMC compatible coating.

Coaches, motor homes and caravans also feature with moulded sections to suit doors, windows and ventilation panels, as well as external storage compartments. In addition, EMKA offer a bespoke custom design service – where there is a requirement for a really different profile then the team here at EMKA are delighted to design, develop and produce to suit specific needs. Contact us to discuss custom designs.

Moulded sealing strips are described in the catalogue and on the website to match functions commonly found on special or custom build road and rail vehicles, i.e. glazing profiles, self-gripping, fire protection, EMC shielding, edge protection and tank support bands. These are common requirements for emergency service vehicles, caravans/motor homes, trucks, coaches, rail carriages and control cabinets to mention just a few applications.
