    FRAS 60 Skirting Rubber


    Reglin FRAS Skirting Rubber is black, premium grade, 60 Duro synthetic rubber strip, certified fire resistant and anti static. Independently tested and certified by the Mine Safety Technology Centre it meets MDG 3006 / MDG 3608 NON METALLIC MATERIALS FOR USE IN UNDERGROUND COAL MINES certification and is designed for use as a sealing skirt along conveyor belt on underground conveyor systems.

    FRAS 60 Skirting Rubber has good tear resistance and is designed to be worn by the conveyor belt cover to create a seal once adjusted. This reduces both material spillage and dust escaping but also minimises wear to the conveyor belt cover itself.

    FRAS 60 Skirting Rubber can be supplied as full slabs or as pre-cut skirting rubber strips to suit any standard conveyor system designs, ready for easy installation. It can also be supplied with pre cut holes, slots and bevels, as per specifications and drawings or custom designed to meet any application requirements.

    Soft Skirting Rubber


    FRAS 60 Skirting Rubber has been designed primarily for use as a sealing side skirt along the conveyor belt on conveyor systems in underground applications. It is ideal for conveyor loading or transfer points in underground mines or construction tunnels but can be used in any application where ignition points and fire potential are a high risk such as grain handling and processing.
