METSOURCE PRODUCTS IN ACTION:
When the city of Seattle embarked on its $930 million dollar renovation of the Seattle Center Arena in anticipation of the reopening for a new NHL team and, hopefully, an NBA team to follow – Little did it know that MetSource would be a critical supplier providing components in rapid response.
OUR WIN-WIN SOLUTIONS CREATE VALUE FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. HOW CAN METSOURCE CREATE A WIN-WIN SITUATION FOR YOU?
One of the challenges of waterproofing a concrete structural wall is the Tie Back Anchors that protrude through the wood Lagging form. These anchors are what hold back the earth allowing a concrete wall to be poured and are therefore necessary but offer a challenge. How do you waterproof around these anchors? Tie Back Covers are a rigid structure that cover the anchors and provide a means to quickly waterproof the wall with installation of a membrane covering.
Our solution, a custom produced Tie Back Cover, vacuum molded in a material that provided rigidity and in the correct geometry to make installation of the waterproofing membrane possible. As is such in almost all construction projects – time was of the essence – thus delivery of our Tie Back Covers was critical within weeks after receiving the dimensional requirements.
Provide a material in a geometry that would assist in quick installation of a waterproofing membrane separating the wood Lagging form and a new concrete structural wall.
