Reddiplex have been established suppliers to the glazing industry for over forty years, we cater for glazing customers of all sizes ranging from aluminium system suppliers to PVC-U fabricators.
To ensure we are able to meet the desired performance characteristics of a wide range of market sectors we offer a extensive selection of material types and processing methods.
Rigid profiles can be either single material types or co-extruded using a combination of rigid and flexible material types. The additional insertion of materials such as aluminum through a process called cross head extrusion can be used to further strengthen the profile. We also offer a range of inline processes including printing, embossing and foiling. The rigid profiles we extrude are commonly used in automotive, partitioning, glazing, display and roofing market sectors.
The Flexible plastic profiles that we extrude are specific to our customer’s requirements and are commonly used for sealing systems or connecting sections between two components. We provide co-extrusion and triplex extrusion providing combinations of material types and colours. Through offering a range of secondary operations such as cut lengths, colour coding and specialist packaging we can meet the needs of a range of clients.
The solid rubber extrusions are commonly used in glazing applications. These rubber profiles can be single or co extruded to combine variations in material type and colour. We are also able to print onto the rubber profiles for identification purposes. We understand that a number of the profiles we extrude are used to form a part of an overall system, we therefore offer cording to reduce shrinkage and silicone application to aid installation. The profiles we extrude in rubber are commonly used in glazing, marine and automotive sectors.
CLOSED CELL RUBBER
Closed cell rubber offer the benefits associated with solid rubber however it has a much better compression making it an ideal material for sealing low pressure application, and replacing open cell sponge profiles in a multitude of applications. We are able to co-extrude profiles combining various densities of rubber into a single profile. The profiles we extrude on the rubber lines are commonly used in automotive, glazing and curtain walling applications.
The ability to extrude a diverse range of materials combined with in-house tooling enables us to offer the complete manufacturing service to a wide customer base.
We are fully conversant with new materials and technologies, ensuring customers receive the most up-to-date guidance with regards to material selection and product design. Combine this with onsite tooling provides customers with a controlled manufacturing service without external involvement, ensuring complete confidentiality.
Reddiplex manufacturing capabilities ensure customers have confidence that they are receiving the optimum custom extrusion solution in terms of product performance.
Expertise and experience in the extrusion of a variety of standard and high grade materials, coupled with extensive technical knowledge of extrusion processes ensures customers receive an innovative design solution specific to their particular application.
Progressively built up over a number of years from customer requirements and market trends we have developed standardised solutions that are compatible with a wide range of leading manufacturer’s processes and systems.
Our expertise in the partitioning sector has positioned us as the preferred supplier to leading partitioning companies. In addition to our custom design service we also offer a range of standards off the shelf systems for single, double and frameless systems. We also offer a range of dry joints that offer a high clarity finish which will not interrupt the continuity across glazed panels.
We offer a wide selection of glazing gaskets that are suitable for dynamic and static applications. Our range includes EPDM, TPR and PVC based profiles all offering high performance characteristics including UV stability, high deflection recovery rates and superior aging properties.
Our products are ideal for automatic insertion into assemblies for many different applications. Pile products are manufactured from rigid polypropylene base which is molecularly bonded to a flexible multi-filament siliconised yarn. This combination allows for easy installation into the seal housing whilst maintaining a soft seal when in contact with the surface.
Reddiplex acoustic seals have been tested to BS EN ISO 10140-2:2010 for acoustic performance and BS EN 1634-3:2004 for smoke to demonstrate effective performance characteristics. These tests have been carried out in timber door applications; we also offer technical expertise in the design and testing of acoustic sealing solutions for use in other specialist applications.
Lorry door seals are known to experience wear and tear in their changeable and erratic environment. When a seal is no longer sufficient, internal temperature can no longer be controlled meaning the whole system requires replacing. Reddiplex revolutionary modular lorry door seal offers a sustainable and reliable sealing solution for the refrigerated vehicle industry.
Reddiplex have a wide selection of door seals available for all types of timber doors, most of which are held in stock for immediate delivery. Our standard range of seals includes: Timber Seals, T-Foam Timber Seals, Weatherbar Plus and Acoustic Seals.
