How can Panova help you on your next project?
Switch Seal Boots
Panova’s switch seal boots are elastomeric boots that seal, protecting a switch and internal components against hazardous foreign elements.
Our switch seal boot is a one-piece component constructed of a flexible rubber boot element that is bonded to a threaded metal insert during molding. This insert fully encapsulates the switch and bushing to panel. This assembly replaces the panel mounting nut and seals the mounting hole, making it watertight. It also eliminates any need for gaskets or packings.
Panova’s switch seal boots are designed to protect against moisture, oil, dirt, dust, most solvents and many acids. Our switch seal boots also provide vibration-resistant mounting and act as double insulation with no interference to switch movement.
Whether your organization requires a small quantity of switch seal boots or needs to buy in bulk, you can trust that the Panova team can meet your needs.
Different Types of Seal Boots
Panova produces several different types of seal boots, also referred to as rubber switch boots. Our seal boots lineup encompasses toggle switch seal boots, push button switch seal boots, rotary switch seal boots and even custom switch seal boots, for customers requiring special parts.
Toggle Switch Seal Boots
Panova’s toggle switch seal boots are built for use with toggle switches. These products protect switches’ internal components from contaminants such as water, oil, dust, solvents and acids.
Our toggle switch boots are available in full-size, half-size, constricted full-size, constricted half-size and miniature switch boot versions. All of these seal boot sizes perform to the product’s standard, and most of these sizes are designed to meet military specifications, or MIL-SPEC.
Panova can produce custom toggle switch boots according to your specifications.
Push Button Switch Seal Boots
Panova’s push button switch seal boots are designed to be used with push button switches. Just as with toggle switch boots, push button switch seal boots shield internal switch components from water, oil, dust, solvents, acids and other contaminants.
Push button switch seal boots are available in typical push button, push button with tip and open boot varieties, with all these sizes performing to the product standard. Most sizes are MIL-SPEC compatible.
Panova can produce custom push button switch seal boots based on your specifications.
Rotary Switch Seal Boots
Rotary switch seal boots produced by Panova are produced to be used with rotary switches. These rotary and potentiometer switch seal boots protect switches’ internal components from contaminants, including water, oil, dust, solvents and acids.
Our rotary switches seal off the rotary shaft and switch panel, and most sizes we produce meet MIL-SPEC.
Custom Switch Seal Boots
Finally, Panova’s custom switch seal boots are flexible components designed to keep dust, moisture and any other contaminants from affecting areas near shafts, levers, electrical wires and hoses.
Our 6452 and 6185 parts have metal inserts, but our 4002 part does not.
Our specialized seal boots are available in several standard sizes and can be tailor-made to your specifications.
