Sealing Solutions for Rail Cables and Pipes
Roxtec was founded in Sweden in 1990 with the invention of Multidiameter™, a solution for adaptability to cables and pipes of different sizes based on sealing modules with removable layers. This flexible concept revolutionized the process of cable routing and pipe installation, simplifying design, speeding up installation work and reducing the need for stock, material and logistics.
Today, Roxtec supplies sealing solutions as well as design services and tools to many international projects within marine, offshore oil and gas, power, process industries, infrastructure and equipment manufacturing.
Seals for Rolling Stock Cables, Pipes and Plastic Conduits
Roxtec has a long history of solving problems in the rolling stock industry. We know what it takes to seal off around cables, pipes and plastic conduits in fire rated barriers throughout the vehicle structure, and have developed penetration seals that fulfill the highest fire resistance requirements and cover the highest hazard levels. We understand the global presence of the rolling stock market, and support our customers and their partners in design, manufacturing and modernization across continents and geographies. We also recognize the difference in design principle and offer solutions in aluminum and stainless steel for both bolted and welded installations.
Our compact products are both light-weight and space efficient, which help our customers reduce the weight of the train set and offer excellent installation ergonomics. Openable frames simplify retrofit and modernization as cables can stay put – one solution for multiple hazards.
To secure safe transportation of people and goods and avoid the risk of damage or downtime, use Roxtec seals as a standard solution for cables, hydraulic pipes and plastic conduits in your train vehicles.

Standardize with our superior solutions to ensure safe and reliable operations in a cost-efficient manner. Route multiple cables pipes, and plastic conduits of different sizes through each opening in your buildings and equipment. And add cables – without making new holes.
Protecting Life and Assets
The Roxtec sealing system protects against fire, gas, water, dust, blast, pests, pressure and temperature changes. It also reduces noise, vibration and material fatigue, and exists in versions for EMC, hazardous locations (Ex) and bonding, grounding and lightning protection.
The system is certified by all major classification authorities. Roxtec products count 285 certificates, including IECEx/ATEX and MED, as well as 430 registered tests and approvals.
The seals are used worldwide to ensure safety, efficiency and operational reliability. They are also appreciated for the clean installation process, the area efficiency and the adaptability to a wide range of cables, metal pipes and plastic pipes. The ability to open up the seals to add cables or make quick changes simplifies maintenance and retrofit.
Prepared for the Future
The system is designed for cost-efficiency, from the design and building phase through to maintenance. Standardized Roxtec kits are supplied with rectangular or round frames, separate or integrated compression units, and rubber modules or bodies. There are also round seals suitable for metal pipes or plastic pipes.
The flexibility makes it easy to seal multiple cables and pipes in very few openings. The seals allow pre-terminated cables and provide built-in spare capacity. Users can stay competitive and deal with new needs and regulations, since it is possible to add cables and pipes and extend the service life of projects – without adding material costs.
