Trelleborg Offshore Norway - Military Vehicle Tracks, Pads and Fire / Blast Protection Systems

Trelleborg Viking AS, established in 1896, is the largest producer of rubber products in Norway. Our rubber products have served the defence industry for more than 30 years. Development and production is performed in the 23,000m² plant near Drammen, Norway. Trelleborg Viking is certified to EN-ISO 9001:2000, EN-ISO 14001:2004 and ISO/TS 16949:2002.

Trelleborg Viking AS is a part of the global Trelleborg group, including 22,000 people in more than 40 countries.

Most important has been development and production of tracks for military vehicles, such as for the Hägglunds BV 206. However, Trelleborg Viking is experienced in air, sea and land applications, with a wide range of rubber-products.

MILITARY VEHICLE TRACKS

Trelleborg Viking developed the tracks for the Hägglunds BV 206 and also produces specially designed tracks for military vehicles. More than 30,000 tracks have been produced since the late seventies. Tracks are in service for many armies around the world in both polar and tropic environments.

The combination of a modern and proven track is the result of our continuous product development together with our customers. Our military vehicle tracks are based on the internal drive design and no modifications are necessary on the vehicle to install our tracks on an original BV 206. Tracks are also produced for the special version P6 and other vehicles.

VIKING PROTECTOR - FIREPROOF AND SHOCK RESISTANT PACKAGING FOR AMMUNITION, EXPLOSIVES AND WEAPONS SYSTEMS

Fireproof and shock resistant packaging for ammunition has been an important part of the Trelleborg Viking activity. Viking Protector is a concept for protection of explosives and weapon-systems against fire, shock and mechanical damage during handling, storage and transportation.

  • Customized designed to specifications
  • Tested and approved by leading manufacturers
  • Excellent performance for fire-resistance and mechanical protection
  • Can be made buoyant and watertight
  • Low weight, compact measures and easy to handle
  • Re-useable

HEAT-INSULATION IN ROCKET MOTORS

Trelleborg Viking has produced rubber insulation for booster-motors on missiles for many years. A new development programme, finished in 2005, has resulted in a new generation of rubber for this extreme application. Our insulation is tested and approved by leading booster motor manufacturers.

FIRE AND BLAST PROTECTION FOR MISSILE LAUNCH AREAS

Vikodeck-missile is a specially developed rubber-protection concept for fire and blast protection of missile launch areas on warships and vehicles. The system is based on the well-established 'Fire-Stop' concept developed by Trelleborg Viking for the offshore industry.

Panels of blast and fire resistant rubber may easily be installed on deck, structure and equipment to give ultimate protection if a hang fire occurs. Vikodeck-missile resists the extreme blast, erosion and heat load from missiles; the concept may be adapted to a wide range of applications.

RUBBER PADS FOR STEEL TRACKS

Trelleborg Viking is an experienced manufacturer of rubber pads for steel tracks, and have supplied tremendous quantities of pads e.g. for Leopard tanks. Historically we have relations with all the major manufacturers of steel tracks. By using modern rubber technology, we can develop pads to meet any specific application on any vehicle.

RUBBER TECHNOLOGY FOR SUBMARINES

Trelleborg Viking has designed a wide range of polymer materials for use inside and outside of submarines. Our rubber technology has shown excellent performance in signature management, seal systems and passive fire protection.

VIKING FIRE-STOP

Fire-Stop provides compact, blast-proof, passive fire-protection of structures and equipment. The rubber-based passive fire-protection is tested to withstand a blast for 2.1 bars and jet-fire for more than 2 hours. Smoke and toxic fumes from our products are reduced to a minimum. The material is chemical and water resistant, is very robust and has good impact resistance.

ELASTOPIPE™ EXPLOSION-PROOF FIRE-WATER SYSTEMS

This flexible and explosion-proof pipe-system is a patented, flexible-piping concept, specially designed to substitute rigid pipes in sprinkler, deluge and firewater supply systems.

The system is an alternative to traditional metal and glass-fibre based systems and provides high flexibility both in design and installation, in addition to being non-corrosive and jet fire resistant.
