AGRU America Inc. and HK Solutions Group have released Monoform PLUS, a comprehensive manhole rehabilitation product package that offers streamlined installation with minimal impact on local traffic, the companies said in a prepared statement.

“Monoform PLUS joins HK Solutions’ suite of manhole rehabilitation solutions, providing customers with an option for protection against corrosion through the integrated Ultra Grip liner,” says Wade Anderson, president and CEO of HK Solutions Group. “Our collaboration with AGRU enables us to deliver Monoform for applications where standing water and high hydrogen sulfide concentrations would otherwise deteriorate concrete manholes and other structures.”

Monoform PLUS offers equal performance and design life compared with a typical replacement job, but comes with numerous benefits, including minimal traffic disruption, improved cost-effectiveness, faster installation, no required external bypass pumps and no compaction issues. It is a 100% structural product package that is also corrosion resistant thanks to the incorporation of the Ultra Grip geomembrane. Using Monoform PLUS, most manholes can be rehabilitated in two days without being taken out of service.

“We are excited by this novel application of Ultra Grip in creating a new manhole rehabilitation solution,” says Robert Johnson, president and CEO of AGRU America. “Our collaboration with HK Solutions Group has been mutually beneficial, and we are especially proud of this milestone and its potential to improve municipal rehabilitation.”
