Trelleborg’s standard Rack and Pinion Boots create a perfect seal for rack and pinion steering mechanisms. Design to your exact requirements, our boots protect the steering gear from dirt debris or water, and support extreme behaviours such as extension, compression or bending stresses.
Manufactured as a single piece of thermoplastic, boots can be specially adapted to the application and size of the steering gear they protect, fulfilling all design criteria. Sealing surfaces designs are studied and tested in order to make sure that the chosen design is the best for your application. Using a one-piece boot limits interfaces and increases sealing reliability. It also reduces costs and makes assembly easier and quicker.
Standard Boots offer the advantages of:
One-piece design for a perfect sealing, tighter, more compact fit and cost reduction
An innovative design process using Finite Element Method ensures quick design of boots that are in perfect fit for Rack and Pinion steering mechanism
Innovative thermoplastic design to reduce weight for better resistance, better and cheaper recycling and cost efficient production.
Choice of standard or anti-snaking design
On housing and on shaft
Compact design, light solution
Anti snaking design
Easy to assemble
improved design of small and large diameter
Anti-snaking Rack & Pinion boots
Snaking is the phenomena of bending in a boot when subjected to high pressure. Our Rack & Pinion boots are anti-snaking.
