Newton is delighted to act as the UK licensed partner for the unique RiveStop system in the UK waterproofing industry – a patented method for sealing tie-bolt holes in concrete walls that delivers massive time and cost savings compared to the alternative mortars in the market.

How Does RiveStop Work?

The RiveStop system consists of three simple components:


RivePipe – Protects tie bars during construction


RiveOut – Removes the RivePipe from the concrete


RiveStop – Seals the tie-bolt hole completely

This short video shows just how easy it is to install RiveStop and benefit from the unique tie-bolt hole waterproofing:

The Benefits of RiveStop

RiveStop delivers many benefits compared to the usual cement-based products on the UK market, including:

  • Reliability – Avoid the risk of water and gas leaks compared to the conventional PVC tubes method
  • Reusability – RivePipe units can be reused over and over, usually a minimum of 20 times.
  • Ease of Use – No training is required, and the system can be installed in any weather or temperature.
  • Speed – Installation is 10-times faster than existing methods, as high as 360 to 500 RiveStop units per hour dependent on whether you are using the manual or electric rivet method.
  • Adaptability – RivePipe units are available in different lengths dependent on wall thickness, and RiveStop units have variety of diameters, materials and finishes.
  • Safety – The system is certified as a barrier against water pressure, sound pollution, fire, acidic or saline solutions, and radon.
  • Durability – RiveStop adapts to the size and shape of the tie-bolt hole, ensuring a 100% watertight, permanent seal for the lifetime of the concrete.

Overall, RiveStop delivers savings of up to 90% in terms of both man hours and material costs compared other alternatives in the UK waterproofing market. This has also been proven on numerous, large-scale projects around the world, including:
