Section 14 covers pipe and pile penetrations. It provides instructions for drilling through QuickSet formwork for plumbing purposes, typically with a distance of about 100 millimeters from the top to avoid weakening the system.
It is important to use a mastic sealant with a UV stabilizer to prevent moisture from entering the system after drilling the hole.
Additionally, the section covers cutting QuickSet bases to accommodate pipes and suggests using an angle grinder. It highlights the need to use additional support, such as a peg or brace, if cutting the base weakens the product too much.
In particular, common sense is needed to ensure the system remains strong enough to withstand pressure from the concrete.
