Client news: RBP Associates seals US license deal


Agile client RBP Associates Ltd has secured a licence deal in the US for its innovative “drop down door seal”. The seal works on the principle of exerting a downwards force along the length of the seal which provides enhanced performance.  A short video showing it under test can be found here.

RBP is a long standing client of Agile and we have worked with company owner and acoustic engineer Brian Parker for a number of years to obtain patent protection for various products, including a novel air conditioning unit housing branded Frogbox(TM).

With the drop down door seal RBP has teamed up with Pemko in the US, a subsidiary of engineering giant Assa Abloy, which has recently launched the drop down seal in the US under the brand “PDB SERIES”. Under the licence, negotiated by Agile partner David Fry, RBP will receive royalty payments for each door seal distributed in the US.

RBP is also in the process of securing funding from the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) to extend patent protection globally and secure similar licensing deals in other markets.
