Forsheda 118 is a pre-lubricated sliding seal that is stretched onto the spigot of the manhole. Additional lubricant is not required for joint assembly. The joint design is standard in many countries. The seal is designed with a sliding mantle which is internally lubricated. The mantle is fully closed to ensure the lubricat stays in place. During installation the thin mantle slides over the body of the seal. This design permits installation with very low force, as there is no friction between rubber and concrete. The special design of the joint and seal make the system easy to centre during jointing.
The Forsheda 118 seal meets all relevant current European standards.
Joint performance is dependent on dimensional accuracy and surface finish of socket and spigot.

Video Joint Assembly
Stretch the seal onto the spigot and position against the shoulder.
Equalize the stress in the seal by lifting and releasing at a few points. The seal must sit evenly against the spigot shoulder all around the manhole.
Lubrication of the socket or spigot is not required. Centre the joint and assemble. The position of the seal in the final mahole joint is shown.
