Cretex Specialty Products
PRO-RING is the most advanced concrete-alternative manhole and catchbasin 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 person 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.
Environment One Corporation
Pressure Sewer Systems
Pressure sewage collection systems were pioneered by Environment One. E/One Sewer systems have proven to be an effective method of sewering otherwise difficult land areas, such as flat, wet, rocky and hilly terrain at a fraction of the cost of gravity sewers. Pressure sewer mains need only to be buried just below the frost line, eliminating the need for the deep trenches often associated with gravity sewers. The small, flexible pipes are also resistant to I&I.
At the heart of an E/One Sewer is the grinder pump, developed by Environment One. These units accept household sanitary waste, grind it into a fine slurry, and pressurize it to permit transport through small-diameter pipes. E/One Sewer Systems serve more than 1.5 million end users daily.

STORMSURGE ACCESS ASSEMBLY
During a major rain or tidal event, the water pressure can be powerful enough to force up and dislodge a manhole cover. This creates a hazard for both motorists and pedestrians. The STORMSURGE Access Assembly solves this problem by allowing water to flow. During a storm surge or backflow event, the cover can lift up to 16 degrees, enabling water to flow out and relieve the pressure. The locking arm and hinge restrain the cover and allow it to properly seat itself after the event. Made in the USA, it is traffic rated and exceeds the 40,000-lb proof-loading requirements of AASHTO-M-306.

One of the strongest structural shapes demonstrated in both natural and manmade structures is the 3D honeycomb configuration. StrataWeb has been able to apply this honeycomb shape to soil reinforcement to solve some of the most difficult civil engineering problems associated with load support over soft soils; erosion on steep slopes; and the lining of lagoons, drainage channels and landfills. The system utilizes strips of extruded polymer welded together at intervals that when expanded, forms a 3D honeycomb mattress. Filled with granular material, the resulting cellular confinement system efficiently transfers compressive and tensile stresses from heavy loads to provide higher load support capacity than any geosynthetic or geogrid product available.
