AFTES Congress I Trade Show starting with a new design
With “Heart” in Paris
After our change of name to SEALABLE, we can now present our new design after more than a year and get in touch with our customers again at the trade shows. The prelude to this was at the AFTES (Tunnel Construction Congress) in Paris with an 18 square meter corner stand. The new slogan "One Heart. One Live. One Gasket Solution." could finally be presented.
The AFTES Congress 2021 in Paris
After the AFTES was canceled in 2020 due to pandemic reasons, we are all the more pleased to be there this year. The general theme is: "The underground, a space of innovations". Underground spaces are an opportunity to imagine and build the city of tomorrow. For the first time we not only presented our products and our know-how under the name "SEALABLE", but also a new patent. An innovative sealing profile with rounded flanks and inwardly offset symmetrical anchoring feets.
Thanks to its innovative groove geometry, it prevents concrete spalling on the edge of the segment - prevention for a long service life of the tunnel. The SEALABLE product manager Gilles Mauchamp says:
"Due to cost, handling and environmental aspects, modern segment design tends to become ever narrower. Based on these developments, our team designed this new type of sealing profile."
To underline this approach, our new slogan came into play:
"One Heart. One Live. One Gasket Solution."
Our trade fair appearance was rounded off with a profile heart, which was created from a sealing corner for segments. It was prominently displayed on one of the booth walls, shown on the postcards and was also given to customers as a giveaway.
The trusting and close contact to our customers and partners is a special need for us.

What exactly makes SEALABLE a solution-oriented business partner?
Not only the tunnel construction industry is going through a transformation. Climate change and the constantly increasing population density require new approaches, on the one hand to do business more sustainably and on the other hand to pave the way for urbanization.
We support this change, observe what is happening on the market, and constantly adapt our portfolio with innovative ideas and new patented sealing solutions. "Stagnation means regression!" once said a recognized German industrial manager. According to this motto, we work continuously on our production processes and profile geometries.
For example, we develop a product together with the customer, which, based on our many years of experience and often unconventional way of thinking, solves the problem and fulfills its future-oriented use.
What future challenges in tunnel construction will you have to master? More speed during expansion, high pressure ratios or costs?
