Precast segment gaskets
glued-in sealing profiles
Glued-in sealing profiles are the classic seals in segmental tunnel construction, which were commonly used in prefabricated segments.
With the glued-in seals, the profiles are glued into the groove of the prefabricated segments. This procedure is an advantage for projects, since it is independence from the production of the segment and the seal is only glued-in after the manufacturing process of the segment. By gluing-in the sealing profile, improvements and repairs are easily possible.
SEALABLE offers a variety of different profiles. In addition to the standard program, we are also happy to find individual solution for your project.
Starting with the new Elbe Tunnel in 1969, SEALABLE has decades of experience in traditional sealing methods. Our company was also able to supply high-quality gaskets for the Eurotunnel in 1988.
