Our client was installing an Anaerobilc Digester plant in Banbridge, County Down, we were contacted assist with speeding up the installation of PVC water stop.
PVC water stop is used to seal joints watertight in concrete structures. This protects the reinforcing steel against corrosion.
When installing PVC water stop, the most time consuming elements is making up the joints to aid the placement of the PVC water stop.
In a meeting with the site engineer for this job, we proposed the idea of fabricating a custom joint which would join the vertical water stop to the floor section, and also allow for the horizontal water stop to run along the kicker.
Custom Joint Fabrication
Our onsite factory set to work manufacturing bespoke joints. The joints are manufactured using a three step welding process including a final band over the joint to ensure water tightness.
Each joint is tested thoroughly to ensure full water tightness is achieved as part of our quality control checks.
The joints were manufactured and onsite within 24 hours of initial proposal.
Benefits of PVC Water Stop include:
- Significant time saving versus site-based fabrication
- Significant labour saving
- Fully tested joint which greatly reduces the likelihood of leaks
