Labyrinth Waterstop

Labyrinth waterstops are double-headed nailed to the formwork; therefore, obviating the need to split the formwork to accommodate one half of the waterstop. Because of their keyway-like shape and multitudinous miniature ribs they do an adequate albeit not stellar job of preventing the passage of water through non-moving construction joints.

Because of their non-symmetrical geometry they are very limited in regards to changes of directions.
