Under the streets of our cities lay miles of subterranean raceways of electrical wires, communication wires, and conduit connected by underground vaults. You don’t see them, many people don’t even know they are there. These vaults vary in size from 6’ wide by 7’ deep by 12’ long, to vaults triple that size with multiple levels. They are constructed mostly of concrete and are susceptible to conditions, such as groundwater, highly acidic soils, and seismic activity, that can cause their deterioration and potential failure.
In the past, there has been little that could be done to make repairs to these vaults. The cost to replace can be upwards of $350,000.00. That being the case, many vaults have become compromised to the point of failure and for the people tasked with maintaining the conduits they contain, too dangerous to enter. JES Supply has changed all that with revolutionary repair products for vaults and underground structures. Now, finally, there is an affordable opportunity to repair old underground infrastructure, as opposed to the costly and disruptive alternative of replacement.
JES Supply’s repair solutions allow for simple minor maintenance repairs to lasting repairs of vaults that look to have crumbled to a point of no return. These systems include state-of-the-art materials for every aspect of the repair: concrete conditioners, corrosion inhibitors, waterproofing primers, and proprietary bonding and filling materials. The results produce a repair which can withstand upwards of 12,000 psi, making the repair stronger than the concrete it’s replacing. Refined installation techniques and equipment have simplified the repair process, cutting installation costs, and reducing completion times.
Save time, save money, and save your vault by repairing it with the JES Supply systems.
