Where You’ll Find ExtrudaSeal Gaskets

ExtrudaSeal are well known in the window and door industry, particularly within the aluminium sector. We supply gaskets and weather seals to fit many market leading profile systems, including Aluk, MetalTech, Senior Aluminium and Smarts, along with innovative and bespoke solutions to help prevent gasket failure and reduce call-backs.

Whilst a large percentage of our work comes from the window and door industry, you’ll find our gaskets in a wide range of sectors, including construction, automotive, marine, local authorities, and even water sports, ponds, pools, tanks and plumbing.

Here are just a few of the places you’ll find an ExtrudaSeal gasket.

Windows

We are a leading supplier of flexible extrusions, weather seals and gaskets for both aluminium and timber glazing fabricators, manufacturing both compatible and completely bespoke gasket designs. With the aluminium industry in good health, demand for aluminium seals is bigger than ever before.

Aluminium Bi-Folding Doors

ExtrudaSeal manufacture a wide range of gaskets for Bi-Folding doors to fit many of the leading aluminium system companies. However, we can also design and produce to customer’s requirements and develop innovative new sealing solutions. Our unique ‘Fit-and-Forget’ threshold gaskets for bi-fold doors are designed to eliminate common misalignment issues, working to eliminate the need for call-backs.

Trailers and Rigid Truck Bodies

We have worked with a leading manufacturer of trailers, curtain siders and rigid box vans to develop bespoke sealing solutions that provide a superior performance when compared with standard off the shelf gaskets.

Airport Runways

We have developed bespoke gaskets for airport runways. Using a thermoplastic polyurethane material, we designed a gasket that would expand or contract as the concrete of the runway gets hot or cold.

Water Seals

Hydrophilic water seals are designed to swell up to ten times their normal volume when submerged in water, making them highly suitable for a range of different applications where contact with water is involved. As the seal swells, it prevents the ingress of water.

You’ll find that our hydrophilic seals are used in the ship building and automotive sector, in dams and water retention, in drains, sewers and water treatment plants, and in tunnels and general construction. Learn more here.

High Levels of Interest Generated at FIT Show 2019

In May, ExtrudaSeal exhibited at the FIT Show event for the third time, showcasing our extensive range of gaskets and ancillaries for the windows and doors sector. The FIT Show is the only UK event of its kind and 2019 show was the biggest yet, with more than 300 leading brands involved, exhibiting across three halls.

From the time the doors opened on the 21st of May, to the final moments of the show on the 23rd of May, it was clear to us that installers and fabricators attending the event were there to do business. As a result, we received high levels of interest in our catalogue of products, with event delegates recognising the many benefits of direct gasket and weather seal supply in terms of performance and cost reduction.

Whilst exhibiting at FIT Show 2019 provided the chance to make many valuable new contacts, it also presented the opportunity to strengthen existing relationships. Paul James, ExtrudaSeal Sales Director said:

“What was very positive was that visitors included those who we had been talking to for a little while but who came and met us at FIT with a genuine desire to do business.”

The high levels of interest in ExtrudaSeal’s products for aluminium window and door systems was certainly an accurate representation of the continuing growth in this sector.

“Aluminium is buoyant and that was reflected in the demand that we saw at this year’s show.”

ExtrudaSeal manufacture gaskets for a wealth of systems, including some of the most popular aluminium profiling systems (Smarts, ALUK, Senior, Metaltech, Ikon and more). In the last 12 months alone, we manufactured more than 20,000km of aluminium door gaskets at our premises in Birmingham.

As with any growing industry, there have certainly been teething problems for aluminium windows and doors fabricators and installers. We have in turn developed innovative products and solutions to address common reasons for gasket failure, not only allowing our customers to increase their efficiency and cut down call-backs but providing the opportunity for them to upsell their product offer. With these benefits available, it’s hard to argue against buying gaskets directly, rather than as part of a package deal with aluminium systems.

“The opportunities to upsell your product offer, purely on the strength of your gasket, whether that’s colour-matched or low sightline, makes the case to buy direct speak for itself.” Paul concluded.

Following another successful year at the FIT Show, we look forward to exhibiting our latest innovations next year.
