The WJ5000 Steeple Chase Modular Water Jump Pit Forming System is designed to meet all NFHS, NCAA and IAAF requirements and specifications. This dimensionally accurate system provides all the necessary features to create a safe, watertight and precise pit while eliminating the complex hand forming process normally associated with cast-in-place structures. Sleeves for the optional Steeple Chase Water Jump Pit Hurdle with Barrier Seal are already installed in the framework, so the fit and finish are guaranteed.

The WJ5000 Steeple Chase Modular Water Jump Pit Forming System consists of three bolt-together panel structures that form the rear and sides of the pit. The rear wall includes an integrated, serviceable drain and valve, which can be open and closed via a T-Handle and easy access panel located at the top of the wall. All walls include a pre-installed waterstop to ensure a watertight joint between the walls and the floor. Simply excavate to the proper dimensions, install the drain piping and connection, bolt the system together and pour the concrete and the system is complete. An optional WJ5400 Steeple Chase Water Jump Pit Panel Cover Set rests on 150mm (6”) deep cover ledges. Ledge filler panels are provided to be put in place when the covers are not being utilized during a track event or if a cover set is not specified. These panels eliminate the hazardous uneven ledge at the rear and sides of the pit that might pose any danger to the athletes.

All surfaces, including the covers are designed to receive a 13mm (0.5”) layer of synthetic track material, providing a safe environment for the athlete as well as a desirable finished look. The synthetic track material is added later by the surfacing contractor.
