Birth of C Wrap

C Wrap – Environmental seal and Shielding seal Combination

If you make or are involved in Cabinets, Enclosures or Doors do you find that you have to make two or even three different configurations, depending on whether your client wants an environmental seal, a shielded seal or a combination of both.

Traditionally you might have fitted a sponge strip, or you use a form in place gasket for the environmental seal or finger stock for shielding or a combination of sponge strip and finger stock or maybe a knitted wire and sponge arrangement top meet the combination of both.

Problem with traditional sealing methods:

The trouble with this is time, planning and money, having to alter your principal design every time a client wants something slightly different, and having to hold stock of different seals and gaskets and expensive shielding materials.

What happens if the client then wants a V-0 fire rating or an ATEx/IECEx approval or a DEF-STAN grade or they need multiple gland plates or access plate covers that need Sealing and Shielding?

One company has a simple, cost effective, easily fitted and highly adaptable solution that can fulfil all your requirements and more.

  • V-0 fire rating – no problem,
  • ATEx/IECEx approval – no problem or
  • DEF-STAN grade – no problem.
