Stormwater Systems & Concrete Pipes for Roads
VantagePipes has the skills, knowledge and experience to offer a range of stormwater drainage solutions for road infrastructure projects. Designed to meet a 100 year service life, the VPipe concrete pipes range are ideal for road projects of any scope.
VPipe is a Reinforced Concrete Pipe and is class for class equivalent to steel reinforced concrete pipe (SRC). This means that all HardiePipe concrete pipes are compliant with AS 4139 - 2003 for reinforced concrete pipes (RCP).
VantagePipes offers customers a range of concrete pipes and stormwater drainage solutions for road an highway applications including:
VPipe is manufactured using a high strength, lightweight reinforced concrete composite. It is a high performance stormwater drainage pipe ideal for road infrastructure in residential and industrial subdivisions. At four metres long, the entire range of VPipe concrete pipes offer a number of benefits when compared to conventional steel reinforced concrete pipes, including:
- Significantly faster installation times
- Improved efficiency during installation as the pipes are lighter and easier to handle
- Simplified curved drainage lines with the wide range of VPipe bends and couplings.
All VPipe concrete pipes are available in the standard strength classes of 2, 3 and 4. Higher strength classes are available where higher load capacities are required.
The VPipe Precision Joint Technology is a highly accurate machined joint that allows a variation of less than 1mm on all pipe sizes. This smart technology makes pipe installation easy and can be combined with other joint options for smart solutions to challenging situations.
Both VPipe+ and VPipe R+ come with Advanced Joint Technology which is a robust dual v-ring joint that uses a separate collar giving it high strength connection as well as the accurately machined joint. This technology provides another construction option when additional joint strength is required.
The VSpoonDrain Open Channel Drainage System is ideal for draining the bottom of embankments and retaining walls typical to many road projects. There is minimal labour and finishing of backfill concrete needed which makes placement easy. The finished product provides a smooth, aesthetically pleasing and hydraulically efficient finished surface. VSpoonDrain allows for excess stormwater runoff to be efficiently dealt with ensuring road conditions are safer for road users.
