Product Focus: Custom materials for our Grommet range
Grommets are a ring of rubber or edge strip inserted into a hole. They are punched through thin material to line the hole and to cover any rough edges or reinforce the hole.
A grommet may be open or closed (blind) and is available as a standard item from SBR. We also work closely with our customers should a custom design or size be required for a specific application.
These parts are often in use over long time period on systems and devices where extreme conditions are present. The quality of our components is reliant upon our use of the highest quality rubber and silicone. Our customers can be confident in the longevity and performance of our grommet range.
To keep them in place, standard rubber grommets are flared on each side but Southbourne Rubber supplies tension, open, blind and semi-blind grommets as well as custom grommets.
