Precast Concrete Thrust Blocks are designed to be used as a pipe restraint. The Thrust Block is utilized to prevent pipe joints from separating under the force of fluids, traveling across a bend or tee junction. The Thrust Block helps absorb the fluid and redirect it along the pipe.
Thrust Blocks are precast in the plant, making installation neat and efficient. This allows for easy access to fittings and joints that would normally be covered in a wet cast pour and eliminates the cutting of pipe to repair hydrants and fittings.
