Earth Shield® Column & Pipe Fitting

Earth Shield® has solved a long-standing problem for engineered concrete structures with circular protrusions, such as columns, pipes, piers, and pilasters. The problem: how to permanently seal the concrete joint when cast-in-place concrete is formed against an existing circular member. The solution: Earth Shield® Column & Pipe Fitting (part no. JP320LC1.XX* [*XX is the diameter in inches]) manufactured with a flexible, chemical-resistant polymer and stainless steel anchoring hardware. A single laborer on the job site can quickly install the column fitting and its associated hardware. Simply apply an epoxy gel bed to the existing surface; place the polymer ring into the epoxy gel bed; heat weld the single opening on the polymer ring using a waterstop splicing iron; and Finally, complete the system with the stainless steel closure ring.

The Earth Shield® system functions as an internal dam, centrally located within the cast concrete, to stop aggressive chemicals, solvents and hot petroleum oils from penetrating the joint. By preventing the passage of hazardous liquids the Earth Shield® Column Fitting provides facility owners, engineers, and contractors with the necessary EPA-mandated containment compliance (EPA Title 40 CFR 265.193). Of course, the system prevents the passage of water as well. The mechanical properties of the polymer, plus the tear-web design of the JP320L profile, enable the column fitting to function equally well in expansion (isolation) joints and construction joints.

Concrete is everywhere: Buildings, fountains, parking decks, locks and dams, roads and bridges, and myriad other constructions. Because of its long lifespan, high workability, and near-worldwide availability, concrete is the preferred building material for large structures, especially those subject to hydraulic pressure. Not all concrete structures require protection from the ingress of water or other fluids, but those that do require a properly installed waterstop in and along their concrete joints. The concrete joint is the most likely point of leakage and waterstops are uniquely designed to prevent this. This book’s sole purpose is to educate the reader on all facets of waterstop.
