A client approached us to replace the various rubber seals in the carriages as part of a refurbishment programme.
The rubber seals were aged and had lost their capabilities resulting in draughty windows & doors and excessive noise in the carriage. This impacted on passenger comfort.
We reverse engineered the various profiles, based on samples taken from the carriages, prepared a new series of drawings then produced samples for fit and function. We used the latest compounding technology to ensure compliance with current regulations and improved performance.
Where applicable, seals were redesigned to accommodate the constant friction and distortion experienced in service, thus extending their longevity.
The train provided had draught free carriages, with rubber seals compliant with the latest regulations and with a longer lifespan
