The above general categories of seals can be used in many different applications. There are also seals that are very application specific, and are designed to solve a specific problem:
These seals are specifically designed to lock in a window on a truck or trailer or anywhere a window would be used. It has two sides to it, one to fasten onto the flange and the other to lock in the glass. This is a two-part system with a smaller piece that is inserted into the seal to lock the two openings tight. This is made from a dense rubber compound in order to create a solid seal with the least amount of wiggle room on the flange or glass.
Slide-out seals are specially designed to create a soft seal on a slide-out room against a recreational vehicle (RV) and guard against water finding its way into the vehicle. We offer two main classes of slide-out seals for the RV market. One requires a flange on the RV for insertion, the other is applied with tape. We have several options that use the clip-on flange fastening system: ED-50468-T, ED-50465 and the ED-50474. Each one has slightly different features, but all include a combination of bulbs and flaps.
We also have a slide-out seal system that doesn't require a flange and is applied with 3-M heat activated tape (HAT). This new patent-pending slide-out seal system is called the Uni-Seal. The Uni-Seal system includes three different types of seals for the outside, bottom and interior of the slide-out unit. The patent pending technology allows for a bulb to be pulled away for applying a mechanical fastener like a staple or screw and then the bulb will snap back to the original position. It is a one-piece slide-out seal design that is effective, can be efficiently installed, is shipped by the coil in a box and works with most RV designs.

These are very specialized seals that are designed to cover large dynamic gaps with a significant range of motion. With ranges from one to fifteen inches of coverage, these seals will protect gaps from the elements and stay clipped on with our strong spring steel clips. These seals can be found on emergency vehicles, trucks with sleeper cabs or anywhere else a dynamic expandable seal would be needed.
Our spring steel is inserted into the rubber seal to create a strong clip-on action that can be used on a flange for a strong connection that will not lose its clamping power over time (even when removed and reinstalled). The seal is made from durable, long lasting rubber.
