Newton are the UK licensed partner of the RiveStop system, a unique and 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.

The system is composed of three simple elements:

  1. RivePipe – A removable, reusable and recyclable formwork tube that protects tie bars within the concrete, and once removed leaves a clean, uniform tie hole.
  2. RiveOut – The manual extraction tool for easily removing RivePipe tubes from concrete walls in a matter of seconds.
  3. RiveStop – A patented rivet system that is quickly and easily installed, expanding to 50% of its original diameter to hermetically seal any tie-bolt holes left by the RivePipe.

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.
