Sealux HydroHalt shower seal wins architects choice award
Sealux has been awarded 'Best Interior Product' at the annual Architecture & Building Expo in Dublin in recognition of its revolutionary new HydroHalt shower tray and bath joint sealing system.
The exhibition runs alongside the annual conference of The Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland. The judging panel, made up of five principal architects, clearly saw merit in the HydroHalt invention, designed and patented by Sealux.
"We thought the Architecture & Building Expo would provide a perfect platform to launch HydroHalt," says Sealux managing director Gerard Robinson.
"We were absolutely delighted to have won this prestigious award having invested so much in the research and development that delivered this revolutionary solution; one we believe will become an industry benchmark."
Gerard reveals that early research highlighted that the inherent problems and limitations associated with butyl adhesive sealing strips could not be overcome without eliminating the butyl adhesive itself.
"This set product development on a discovery path that ultimately lead to the HydroHalt design, which, compared to butyl adhesive sealing strips, is superior in material composition, offers greater installation versatility and higher product performance," he explains.
Sealux was set up in 1998 to research, design and manufacturer alternative, fit-for-purpose perimeter joint seals for shower trays and baths. Today, Sealux manufactures a range of patented joint sealing systems under its own brands Sealux, Cladseal, Panseal, Trimlux and Aquastrap, and the trademarks of leading suppliers in the UK 'shower environment' market that have chosen Sealux as their preferred joint seal partner.
