Rubber bellows, gaiters and boots are commonly used to protect moving parts and to allow flex; they offer protection from the elements.

A typical example would be a joystick cover in the cab of a construction vehicle on a building site, where the cover protects the mechanical parts from the ingress of dust. The rubber compound would typically be EPDM as this compound has the ability to withstand the extreme temperature fluctuations found in the cockpit of a construction vehicle and still maintain its flexibility.

As a rubber bellows manufacturer, we produce custom rubber bellows as well as gaitors and boots for:

  • rubber gaiter

    Rail - Where they are used to cover cabling between carriages.
