Krayden Canada and a leading manufacturer of lighting solution had been challenged with designing overhead lights for a train station. We needed to find a solution to create an access panel that could be opened and closed for service reasons but would have an airtight seal to protect the lights from the environment. We partnered with Dow exclusively to use the Dow 3-8186 foam to solve the challenge.
