Plastic Pipe Systems

The company’s plastic pipe systems are well documented across the industry for offering a vast array of benefits and capabilities, taking plastic pipe technology to a new level. Benefits include:

  • Outstanding flow performance due to a smooth inner wall and exceptional hydraulic performance when compared to rigid materials
  • Outstanding loading capabilities due to the flexibility, withstanding point loading, differential settlement and ground movement
  • Structural design flexibility offering various profile stiffness requirements
  • Less joints due to the six metre pipe lengths, reducing risk of leaks, angular deviation and distortion
  • Easy installation due to the light weight and flexible nature of the product
  • The systems are accredited by BSI to ISO 9001:2008

Systems available include:
