Compression Seals for Access Panels

Secure and Reliable Sealing for Railcars

Compression seals for access panels are used in railcars to provide a secure and reliable seal for various access points: maintenance hatches, service panels, equipment compartments, or inspection openings. These seals must withstand the demanding railcar environment and perform several key functions, including enhancing security by controlling entry into specific areas; protecting sensitive equipment, electrical systems, and mechanical components; minimizing heat transfer; and reducing noise transmission.

Our mass transit industry sealing solutions are designed to perform in each of those areas and ensure secure sealing, protection, insulation, and durability for your railcar access panels. Reach out to learn more about how we can work together.

Durable Compression Sealing Materials

Designed for Rigorous Railcar Applications


Your compression seals must be made from durable materials that are capable of withstanding the demands of railcar environments: That means resistance to wear, tear, corrosion, UV exposure, and other environmental factors.

Other important factors include the seal’s compression and recovery characteristics, environmental resistance, compression force, and regulatory compliance. Achieving the best compression seal for your railcar application begins by selecting the right material, including EPDM, silicone, neoprene, polyurethane, and nitrile. Take a look at our materials list and talk to us about tailoring a sealing solution to your needs.
