Roxtec introduced an industrial safety study in Mexico, aiming to undertake a national campaign for all kinds of factories use pasamuros cortafuego sealed systems with certified technology to avoid accidents.

The study was fulfilled to 100 industrial companies, for 6 months and studies revealed that 84 % seal, 16 % do not seal, 74 % use materials called substitutes (those that seal, but do not provide suitable safeness,) and from that percentage, about 82 % has had a problem when using those substitutes and 64 % of manufacturing companies in Mexico do not know the industrial certifications about sealing and safety.

In addition, only 40 % of the companies that manage machinery fulfill the alignments from the Ministry of Labor and Social Security (STPS, by its Spanish initials.)
