Sealing profiles for special sectors

EMKA is pleased to offer its specialist sealing profiles – and custom design service for special applications. They offer sealing profiles for service, utility and emergency vehicles as well as for railway rolling stock and line-side installations. HVAC equipment controls also require the particular EMKA 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 at EMKA are delighted to design, develop and produce to suit specific needs.

Moulded sealing strips are described in the EMKA catalogue and on their website to match the 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.
