Concrete Pipes for Marine Applications
VantagePipes offer a range of concrete pipe products and stormwater solutions for projects that require marine grade compliance.
Unlike ordinary steel reinforced concrete pipes and stormwater products, VPipe does not rely on steel reinforcement to provide tensile strength to the product. The VPipe manufacturing process uses cellulose fibre to reinforce the concrete; this means that VantagePipe concrete pipes and stormwater products are still classified as a reinforced concrete pipe (RCP).
VantagePipes manufacturing process of this fibre ensures it is fully incorporated into the mix allowing maximum strength and reinforcement. All VantagePipe concrete pipes have the same smart technology in their core DNA, this smart technology and proven performance is unique to VantagePipes and the range of VPipe concrete pipes.
VantagePipes offer a range of products and solutions that fit marine compliant applications including:
- VPipe concrete pipes
- VAquifer Drainage System
- VSpoonDrain Open Channel Drainage
- VSuperTite Suspended Drainage System.
When compared to traditional steel reinforced concrete pipes, the lighter and longer range of VPipe concrete pipes reduce installation times and improve efficiency. With over 12,000kms of pipe in service, VantagePipes concrete pipes are proven performers in a diverse variety of projects and installation environments.
VPipe, VPipe+ and VPipe R+ all come with marine grade durability as standard, thanks to the absence of steel. Both the reinforcing fibre and the pipe matrix are resistant to the effects of chlorides in groundwater or in water flowing through the pipe.
Other products that benefit from this core DNA and are suited for marine exposure include:
