The DPI Rib Loc structured wall pipe profile has a smooth internal skin with T-shaped outside ribs. The pipe is formed by spirally winding the profile with the male and female locking edges clipped and solvent glued to one another.
Pipes can be factory manufactured or spirally wound on site in nominal diameters of 315 mm to 1015 mm in lengths from 7-22 m, depending on the diameter. Fittings are purpose-made to suit the application.
The certificate covers the use of Rib Loc structured wall uPVC pipe in all areas of South Africa for:
- low pressure reticulation for sewers, stormwater and irrigation (heavy profile pipes with 1.7 mm wall thickness)
mine ventilation ducting (light profile pipes with 1.2 mm thickness)
