Have you ever been asked to supply a submittal for one of your construction projects? As we all know, water, electricity, gas, and fiber optic are critical to infrastructure today, with many facets involved in each project. These installations must be constructed to adhere to the specifications required by the engineer and demanded by the owner. Most projects, whether they are public or private, require a preconstruction submittal package that ensures all the product requirements are being met. In this Iron Strong Blog, we cover the creation and content of product submittals in more detail as we provide step-by-step instructions for utilizing the McWane Ductile Submittal Builder.
Today, most water systems serve the public in two ways: by providing potable drinking water and enabling fire protection for the community. Fire protection provides more than just the obvious public safety benefits. It also enhances community property values and provides residents lower home and property insurance rates.
There are various methods available for restraining Ductile Iron Pipe joints, and a common question our customers ask us is, “Which method of restraint is best – locking gaskets or boltless restrained joints?”
Both methods work very well, but the “best” method of restraint for your project can vary depending on the type of installation, the pressure the line will operate under, and the size (diameter) of the ductile iron pipe that is being used.
In this article, we will compare two common restraint options supplied by McWane Ductile - Sure Stop 350® Gaskets and TR Flex® pipe.
In a continuous effort to make your job easier, we have developed an online submittal builder to quickly and neatly package your personalized presentation.
