  • PRO-RING™ is the most advanced concrete-alternative manhole and catch basin grade adjustment system available anywhere.  Available in round, square and rectangular, these rings are manufactured from Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) which is renowned for its exceptional strength to weight ratio, durability, chemical resistance and long service life under harsh conditions.  One man can install the PRO-RING™ system in just minutes to within a quarter inch of finished grade and they are watertight.  Where concrete rings break and may cause injury, the PRO-RING™ system eliminates the hazard, helping minimize the risk of injury.  A 6” PRO-RING™ weighs just 14 pounds and stands up to all kinds of physical abuse. The PRO-RING™ system dramatically speeds manhole installation and repair time.  Manhole repair sites can be opened, repaired and closed in one day, reducing overall costs from 20% to 30%, based on conditions.  Angle rings are available to match slopes, which eliminates the need for mortar and shimming.

  • Cretex LSS Internal Manhole Chimney Seal is a mechanical seal installed on the frame and grade ring sections of sanitary sewer manholes.  These seals eliminate and prevent manhole frame-chimney inflow.  During wet weather, clear water (inflow) enters manholes through deteriorated and broken frame-chimney joints which may burden the collection system.  Each seal is made up of a high grade rubber sleeve and stainless steel expansion bands which can be easily removed and re-installed to allow for future manhole adjustments.  The LSS chimney seal has a 50 year design life and is available in four widths, allowing complete chimney coverage of up to 24 vertical inches with a single seal.

  • X-85 External Manhole Chimney Seal

  • Cretex X-85 External Manhole Chimney Seal is a mechanical seal installed on the frame and grade ring sections of sanitary sewer manholes to prevent clear water inflow.  The X-85 is made up of a high quality EPDM rubber sleeve and stainless steel compression bands.  The seal can be easily adjusted for future grade changes, is suitable for above grade installations and requires no special tools, primers or torches.  This seal spans up to one vertical foot of grade rings and has a 25 year design life.
  • Cretex Wrap
    Cretex Wrap is an external mechanically fastened joint collar for manhole and pipe joints to prevent infiltration and soil migration....

  • Cretex Wrap joint collars provide a positive, permanent seal against groundwater infiltration.  Cretex Wrap is a custom fit, full perimeter seal that meets or exceeds ASTM C-877(Type II) and will also pass a vacuum test in accordance with ASTM C-1244.  Cretex Wrap joint collars are so versatile they can be used on manholes, round pipe, elliptical pipe, arched pipe, tongue and groove joints, bell and spigot joints and even box culverts.  The Cretex Wrap collars are secured to the manhole or pipe with a steel strap on either side of the joint.  These straps compress the mastic underlayment of the collar onto the surface of the manhole or pipe wall creating a permanent watertight seal.
  • Cretex/HydraTite Internal Joint Seal
    The Cretex/HydraTite Internal Joint Seal system is a mechanical, trenchless remediation technology for leaking pipe joints from 24" up to 216" diameter....

  • The Cretex/HydraTite Internal Joint Seal system is a mechanical, trenchless remediation technology for leaking pipe joints consisting of a proprietary rubber seal that spans the joint and is held in place by stainless steel retaining bands on either side of the joint. The retaining bands are hydraulically expanded and locked in place using a wedge lock design which forms an air tight seal around the joint eliminating all possibilities of infiltration or exfiltration.  The HydraTite system is a recognized method of joint repair by AWWA manual M28, and has been widely accepted and approved by engineers, municipalities and DOTs.  The HydraTite system has a 50 year design life, does not require excavation and has a low profile that ensures minimal flow loss. These seals can be custom fitted to irregular shaped conduits and may be used as “End” or “Termination” seals on CIPP projects.
