APM Hexseal Boots for Circuit Breakers & Rocker Switches
Circuit breakers perform a very valuable role in all sorts of control systems, proteting equipment from short circuits and electrical overloads. APM Hexseal’s lever-actuated circuit breaker boots are designed to protect these critical devices, extending breaker life-spans and in turn helping to ensure long-term security of the system as a whole. Molded from APM Hexseal’s transparent silicone RUBGLAS, which is specially formulated to maintain clarity and prevent yellowing over time. These boots allow for easy device operation and status recognition while maintaining APM Hexseal’s exceptional environmental protection from weather exposure, wash downs, salt water. lubricants, solvents, dust, dirt. grease and any number of other environmental elements that could potentially threaten electrical components. Out two distinct boot styles are Back-of-Panel, secured behind the breaker mounting panel, and Front-of_panel, mounted to the outdie of a panel using a sturdy metal frame. Both styles are secured using APM Hexseal’s self-sealing Seelskrews.
Much like our circuit breaker boots, APM Hexseal’s Rocker Boots are often molded from transparent silicone RUBRGLAS which makes for easy viewing of the switch position. The majority of our Rocker Boots do not include an insert or frame, and are designed to install on the switch prior to the switch installation.
