All Earth Shield Waterstop Profiles Are Now Available With Factory Installed Brass Eyelets

New for 2009, all ribbed Earth Shield Waterstop profiles are available with factory installed brass eyelets. The eyelets provide for a convenient and durable tie-off point for wire tying the waterstop to the steel reinforcement prior to the concrete pour. JP Specialties installs the brass eyelets at 12" centers, between the last two ribs, to provide maximum resistance and rigidity to the poured concrete weight.

Note to specifier: To add factory installed brass eyelets to your Earth Shield specification, simply precede the specified part number with "EY." Example: If you are specifying JP636 and want the optional eyelets, call out part number EYJP636.
