Superior Inflatable Seals for Railcars

January 19, 2023

The transportation industry is constantly seeking ways to improve safety, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. In the rail industry, this includes finding the best sealing solutions for railcar designs to keep passengers comfortable and protected. One option that has gained popularity in recent years is the fabric-reinforced inflatable seal, manufactured only by a few select companies throughout the world.

At Seal Master, we specialize in providing high-quality sealing solutions for the transportation market, including sliding doors for railcars. Our fabric-reinforced inflatable seals are designed to provide the ultimate combination of passenger safety, durability and cost-effectiveness.

Why choose fabric-reinforced inflatable seals for your railcar designs?

Increased Passenger Safety

First and foremost, passenger safety is of the utmost importance in the rail industry. Fabric-reinforced inflatable seals are designed to be strong and reliable, withstanding the wear and tear of daily use and helping to prevent accidents and injuries. These seals are made from a combination of durable fabric and flexible rubber, providing a secure barrier that can withstand impacts and protect passengers in the event of a collision.

Superior Durability

In addition to safety, fabric-reinforced inflatable seals are also highly durable. They are resistant to weathering, UV exposure and other environmental factors, making them a long-lasting solution for railcars. This durability helps to reduce maintenance costs and downtime, limiting delays and ultimately saving your company money in the long run.

Fully molded construction delivers long-lasting structural integrity and consistent inflation across the entire strike surface. Our unique fabric reinforcement system is the most reliable, allowing you to use your equipment with confidence.

Lower Long Term Cost

Another benefit of fabric-reinforced inflatable seals is their cost-effectiveness. These seals are easy to install and maintain, requiring minimal labor and resources. They also have a long lifespan, which means you won't have to replace them as often as other sealing solutions. This results in significant cost savings for your company over time.

Non-Reinforced = Less Durability and Consistency

In contrast, non-fabric reinforced sealing solutions may not provide the same level of passenger safety, durability or cost-effectiveness. While a few other companies out there do offer some fabric-reinforced products, their primary focus is on non-fabric-reinforced, inferior products.

It's important to carefully consider the specific needs of your railcar designs and choose a sealing solution that meets your high standards for usability and safety. Otherwise you’ll pay more in the long run on frequent replacements, or even in litigation fees if seals fail and cause an accident or damage.

At Seal Master, we have a team of experienced design and engineering professionals who can help you determine the best sealing solution for your railcar designs, including proper material selection for your application.
