Ridgistorm-XL goes XXL


MARKET demand has prompted Polypipe to extend the sizes of its Ridgistorm-XL large diameter piping range.

Originally available in diameters ranging from 750mm to 2100mm, its popularity with customers and demand for increased sizes has seen Polypipe expertly engineer the piping to new diameters of 2400mm, 2700mm – and a 3000mm.
The super sized, strong and versatile piping system is utilised across a wide variety of construction sectors.
Typical applications include flood alleviation, rainwater harvesting, renewable energy and air ventilation.
Emma Nicholls, Marketing Communications Manager at Polypipe, said, “As civil engineers and contractors have been applying Ridgistorm-XL in more innovative ways there has been a real drive for Polypipe to investigate extending this popular range. As we already offer a comprehensive range of high quality plastic piping products in a range of smaller sizes, the logical step seemed to be to offer Ridgistorm-XL in larger sizes. As a response we have introduced the product in larger diameters and we are delighted to now be able to officially launch them.”
Ridgistorm-XL has proved popular due to a number of factors, not least its ability to save a variety of costs during the transport and installation process thanks to its lighter weight compared to the concrete equivalent.
The larger Ridgistorm-XL piping has the same socket and spigot joint as the original diameters and can be joined with electro-fusion or internal welding options for superior joint integrity.
