Rubber for the Construction Industry
Repeatedly, Walker Rubber has stepped in to deliver exacting rubber products for the construction industry. These are often for time-critical projects, when other rubber manufacturers have been unable to deliver. We create heavy duty structural seals, and asset protection products, manufactured in our own UK factory to your precise requirements, having served locally and nationally important projects for over 40 years.
Recommended Profiles for Construction
Whether you need one of our standard rubber extrusions or something unique, we provide premium and cost-effective solutions directly from our UK rubber manufacturing facility. As well a track record of supplying bespoke glazing and architectural seals for major projects, Walker Rubber also manufacture a comprehensive range of rubber impact protectors to suit any operating environment, requirement and condition. Heavy duty options are suitable for storage unit impact protection from large vehicles and loading bays.
Flat-bottomed D & B sections are commonly used for wall impact protection; these take advantage of our heavy-duty EPDM rubber, with superior dimensional stability and high levels of durability compared to other types of material. Our EPDM rubber is extremely stable and can withstand impact after impact - without becoming damaged. In addition, its weather resistant properties make it the perfect long-lasting material to use outside to protect walls from impact. The rubber used in these products comes in a variety of different styles and thicknesses that make it easy for it to fit into any particular situation. You have a rubber for construction issue? Walker Rubber will provide an optimal solution.

This has proven very popular with Construction projects; especially helpful for emergency or temporary use.

Did You Know...?
The Emirates Stadium, the new home to Arsenal Football Club, uses clear polycarbonate and glass to ensure as much light as possible reaches the pitch. To achieve this, an EPDM seal section is required to retain and cushion the glazing material from the metal support structure. Our customer approached us at a point when the completion of the stadium was in danger of running late. Our rapid response in developing a new seal, securing approval and ramping up production in just a few days ensured work on the site continued uninterrupted. One of the best football stadia in the world opened on time due in no small measure to the skill and dedication of the whole Walker Rubber team. Arsenal's motto, Victoria Concordia Crescit , translates to “Victory Through Harmony”, and was something we were proud to add to.
