Circuit Breaker Boots — Lever-Actuated Back-of-Panel Mounted Boots – IP66/68 Rated
HEXSEAL® and E-SEEL® sealing boots for lever-actuated style circuit breakers are molded from APM’s proprietary RUBRGLAS™ … a transparent high tear-strength silicone rubber which won’t yellow or discolor. Each boot is supplied with APM’s patented self-sealing SEELSKREWS® to insure total sealing integrity for the breaker, its panel cutout, and the boot mounting holes. Front panel mounted boots are also supplied with a plated, steel frame. These tough, flexible boots provide a dust-tight and watertight seal without compromising breaker operation or position status viewing.
