Vinylex flat ribbed waterstops are employed in construction joints where
movement between members is not anticipated. They are generally used
below grade in footings, walls, slabs, or for breaks in concrete due to
limitations in working methods.
Vinylex ribbed center waterstops are employed in expansion joints where
movement between members is anticipated. They are generally used above grade
but in fact are a universal design and can be used in any type of joint above
or below grade.
Vinylex split ribbed waterstops are used in either construction or expansion
joints where elimination of split form work is feasible. The split leg of the
waterstop is spread open and nailed to the bulk head. When the form work is
removed following completion of first pour, the split leg is joined together
and the second pour completed.
Although Vinylex manufactures more than sixty
stock waterstop profiles, engineering and design sometimes require a
different configuration. Take a look at cross-sections that have been
designed to meet some of these special applications. Each has been thoroughly
tested on the job.
