I need to source a replacement for the axis covers that expand and contract as the equipment moves.

Anyone any ideas?

Whether they'll have the size you need is another matter.

Hiya, I have a couple of Lengths!! They are made of a rubbery type material.

Both are 165mm high.

one is min: 20mm max: 400mm.
The other is: min: 85mm & max: 1900mm

Small one cost me 10 and larger one cost me 25. Add 2.20 for postage and let me know if they are any good for you?

Hi Bilbo

The 1900 long one would be useful, but my "Folds" are only 10mm depth from front face to back face, so I am not sure if yours will be similar.

Can you have a measure ?

Hiya, each 'fold' is 14/15mm. Measure the 'channel' it sits in.... it may fit :)

The curtain fits into a groove and is covered with a closing panel. The groove is only 10 or so mm,

14mm might well foul the ballscrew, so I'm gonna have to search around for one that has a 10mm profile.


Thanks for the offer though...
