Plastic Reinforced Self-Grip Trims & Seals
Plastic reinforced self-gripping trims are commonly used to seal hatches and other enclosures. They are often used within the marine industry due to their non-conductive and non-rusting characteristics. This allows you to install a reliable watertight seal that can come into contact with salt water. Manufactured with a plastic reinforced spine, these sections hold themselves onto the edge of the hatch without the need for additional adhesive, screws or other fixings. Unlike metal-reinforced trims, they are also lighter and more flexible.
These products can be purchased with or without a side
sealing bulb. We recommend that the sponge sealing bulb is compressed by
approximately 30% to create a long-term watertight seal that does not suffer
from the effects of compression set. It is also essential to choose a product
that tightly fits onto the edge of the panel.
