Diagram showing installation of Bumperite on steel bent plate.

How to install Bumperite Waterguards using a welded steel anchor. Bumperite Waterguards may be installed to a steel bent plate using a welded steel anchor. Here's how:

  1. Determine spacing requirement to ensure safe scaffold erection.*
  2. Measure distance between slab edge bent plate and outer face of stud framing.
  3. Cut the anchor strut to length as to flush out with face of stud framing.
  4. Align the anchor strut with the bent plate and stud framing (true, square, and plumb) per detail.
  5. Weld anchor strut to building bent plate per welding detail shown.
  6. The use of a certified welder and E7018 rod or equivalent is recommended.

*Spacing requirements for application should be determined by a competent scaffold erector or structural engineer per building and safety codes prior to installation. The temporary disconnection and reconnection of this product at erected scaffold should only be performed one connection at a time and only after it is determined safe to do so. The final determination of safety is the sole responsibility of the end user and should be determined by a competent and qualified person.
