Roxtec invests in fire lab 

The Swedish cable and pipe transit manufacturer Roxtec is growing in several different industries. In order to meet the increasing demand for product testing and pave the way for continuous growth, the company is building a new fire test lab in Karlskrona. It will be ready in 2018.  

The Roxtec sealing system is used all over the world to protect life and secure operations. Owners and contractors within everything from shipbuilding and construction to renewable energy rely on the seals that are tested and certified to protect against multiple risk factors, including fire.

“We see a lot of opportunities for our cable and pipe transits,” says CEO Mikael Helmerson. “We are growing in many sectors at the same time and keep on adding safety solutions for use in new applications. This intensive development makes us perform more fire protection tests than ever before. With the new fire lab, we increase our capacity and prepare ourselves for further growth.”

Roxtec provides safety seals for projects requiring quality and reliability, and the 540 square metre two-floor fire lab will reflect this in all aspects. It will be built at the Roxtec global headquarters close to the material test lab and the product development and production facilities. It will help ensure an efficient work flow, a good working environment and a sustainable testing procedure.

BLRT Group’s new floating dock due to arrive in Klaipeda this month

The large floating dock BLRT Group, the Estonian ship repairer, acquired last year is now on its way to the port of Klaipeda in Lithuania, where it is due to arrive this month.

The company acquired the 235 metre long and 53 metre wide floating dock from the Adriatic Shipyard Bijela in Montenegro in June last year.

"The dock will be the biggest dock in the Baltic countries and will open up new opportunities for ship owners and shipyard to carry out repair and modernization projects on Panamax-type ships," said Arnoldas Šileika, Western Shipyard's Director General.

Roxtec transits installed on Mein Schiff 6

On cruise liner Mein Schiff 6 of TUI Cruises, thousands of Roxtec transits provide certified protection against fire, gas, water and electromagnetic disturbance.

Co-owner Royal Caribbean and shipyard Meyer Turku in Finland continue to cooperate with Roxtec to enable the use of more plastic and composite pipes. Roxtec transits make it cost-efficient to install light-weight and long-lasting plastic pipes,” says Berth Strömborg, senior superintendent of Royal Caribbean.

A total of 6,065 openings for cables and pipes in decks, bulkheads and cabinets are sealed with Roxtec transits. The seals are used in the engine room as well as in passenger areas, and many of them include spare capacity for additional cables and pipes. “It is good to have one supplier for all pipe systems,” says Antti Laaksonen, system responsible for HVAC and catering design at Meyer Turku.    

Mika Tuokko, head of electrical outfitting at Meyer Turku, says one hundred installers have been working with Roxtec cable seals on the new cruise liner: “The most important thing is to keep up the speed by handling fewer items. By using Roxtec instead of other systems we avoid 50 items in stock for each transit.”
