Rubber for the Water Industry
Our role in the water industry
The water industry value is forecasted to hit £247.6 billion by the end of 2022. By 2029 the market value is set to increase reaching £401.47 billion. The water industry provides clean water for domestic and commercial consumers. It maintains and improves sewage treatment processing plants and operates thousands of miles of pipelines and hundreds of pumping stations over a vast geographical area. Protecting public health and maintaining this infrastructure is vital to ensure a safe and secure water supply. Seals, the rubber kind, are a vital component for the residential and commercial sectors, with both municipal water and waste water.
Walker Rubber supporting the water industry
As it should be, there are very stringent regulations for water treatment processes. We provide specialist sealing solutions and temporary-access ladders, which can be used across the industry.
We have a comprehensive range of rubber components to choose from. These include: WRAS (Water Regulations Approval Scheme) certified for drinking water applications and polymeric compounds specifically designed for abrasion and chemical resistance. Our WRAS-approved EPDM known for its high performance and quality can be used for pipeline gaskets and composite seals.View Our WRAS-approved extrusions profiles

Checkout our exclusive Rollaway Bank Ladders
Developed to help workers access steep-sided ditches quickly and safely, our rollaway flexible bank ladders provide a simple solution to the problem of getting up and down steep slopes. This has proven very popular with Rail and Civil Engineering projects, with it being especially helpful for emergency or temporary use. These Ladders can be linked together to access deep cuttings or steep embankments, roofs and dome-shaped structures significantly improving foothold and reducing risk.
Our bank ladders can help your workers navigate their way safely up and down uneven surfaces. These are custom made exclusively by us and can be produced at any length. Please contact us for more information.View Our Bank Ladder Here
