JPS HQ Refurbished and Remodeled From The Ground Up

We're pleased to show off our newly remodeled and refurbished plant located in Lake Elsinore, CA. Both aesthetic (to the building) and mechanical upgrades (to the extrusion area and fabrication shop) were completed over the last several months. Major evolutions included epoxy injection repair, new roofing, HVAC upgrades, ventilation upgrades throughout factory, bathroom remodel, water-blast and paint. The newly freshened-up factory will serve JPS needs as we continue to grow our product lines and take on new markets.

Our Website Optimized for Slow Connections

Designed for people with dial-up or slow internet connections. If this is you, pay it a visit!

Some Simple Waterstop Formulas

I was recently in a long call with an engineer client and many of the questions he was asking, were answered directly in an old document we use to publish in our catalog. I searched through the hard-drive, found the document, converted it to a PDF, and posted it here.

This PDF contains some typical waterstop formula for placement and design considerations and some interesting information on leakage testing.

New Waterstop Catalog for Distributors

A new Earth Shield Waterstop catalog designed especially for the needs of concrete accessories distributors was published on our website today. This catalog is a compressed version of our regular catalog and contains the information most relevant to our distribution partners and omits some of the extra data that our engineering clients require.

New Site Design Went Live

Our new website design is now officially "live" and available for all your waterstop information needs. This is the first major redesign since 2000, and I feel it lives up to the functionality of its predecessor, while being more aesthetically pleasing.

Please stop by for a visit and let me know what you think.
