Any unsealed electrical devices mounted to a control panel or piece of electrical equipment can fall victim to the impacts of hostile environmental factors if not properly protected. In this context, “environmental” is a very broad term, encompassing any number of possible factors, including weather conditions like rain, snow or prolonged wind and sun exposure, pressure changes from submersion in fluids or changes in altitude, contaminants such as water, ice, salt, air, dust, dirt, grease, chemicals, and even spilled beverages.
In order to protect against these threats, APM Hexseal designed and patented the very first Sealing Boot in the late 1940s and, in doing so, set the standards for the entire industry to come.
APM Hexseal’s Sealing Boots and Bushing Seals provide strong protection for both the external and internal workings of a device, ensuring the safety, reliability and overall function of the system as a whole.
APM Hexseal’s Sealing Boots and Bushing Seals are available in a variety of styles and install easily over the vast majority of standard electro-mechanical switches and devices on the market.
