Skirtboard

Skirtboard

Skirtboard rubber stands out as a versatile material with an array of applications. Its flexibility, durability, and lightweight nature make it a go-to choice for various industrial and construction needs. From mounting pads to conveyor belt systems and sealing strips, skirtboard rubber proves its worth in diverse environments where reliability is paramount. It’s particularly adept at controlling wear on surfaces that handle solid materials and slurries, such as chutes, impact areas, and tumblers.

In addition to its industrial utility, skirtboard rubber excels in managing snowy conditions. With a squeegee-like effect, it glides over uneven surfaces, effectively removing slush and liquids to enhance road safety.

At Denver Rubber Company, we prioritize quality in our skirtboard rubber products. Unlike those manufactured from extruded skirtboard, our skirtboard products boast consistent gauge, width, and overall quality, ensuring optimal performance in every application.
