What is pocket Isolator by NJM Group?
Pocket Isolator™ or form guards by NJM Group are a “leave-in-the-slab” solution to protecting columns, pillars and poles – prior to pouring concrete – from exposure to moisture migration and its harmful effects on the anchor bolts, grout bed, base plate and lower segments of the vertical structure.
The NJM Group pocket isolator is a square, four-piece construction that creates a barrier between the inner and outer concrete pours to protect the base of a column, pillar or pole.
It has the ability to accommodate different coloumn and pole diameters, but the standard size is 770mm(l) x 290mm(h) x 65mm(w).Read More

Who uses our pocket isolators?
Streamlining Costco’s construction with Pocket Isolator
Pocket Isolator by NJM Group has recently been applied at the construction site of a new Costco unit in Epping, with a total of 93 columns requiring form guards.
Designed to streamline concrete construction, a pocket isolator is a unique and innovative product. Due to its effectiveness, it is ideal for large scale projects and significantly simplified the construction process at the Costco site.
Benefits of a pocket isolator
A pocket isolator uses 100% Virgin High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) that doesn’t bond to concrete and therefor doesn’t have to be removed. It instead becomes a part of the building structure.
A HDPE pocket isolator is less labour-intensive to use than other form-guards.Other materials such as wood and Styrofoam have to be pulled out after the slab is in place, resulting in cave-ins and wasted concrete.
Routing and cabling is easy as well because it is possible to use conventional hand tools. Previously, with the use of wooden forms, wiring cables and electrical conduit was a difficult task. It is also much safer to incorporate cables into the HDPE form guards as there is no need for saws which will produce harmful dust and fumes.
