HS® Pipe – The Revolutionary u-PVC Adoptable Sewer & Drainage System
The product is offered as a direct replacement for clay and concrete adoptable sewer networks. The solid-wall HS® Pipe system offers the contractor a high-strength, high-performance uPVC system with the added benefits of significant Health & Safety advantages and tangible cost-reduction.
The HS® range is available in a variety of diameters from 110mm to 800mm and a range of pipe lengths. The fittings include an integral secure FE® sealing ring. These are designed to withstand heavy loads and can be installed at depths up to 6.0m. On pipes from 200mm upwards, there is a unique inner wall marking continuously on the axis at a 120° angle. This permanent embossed engraving enables important pipe-related data such as manufacturer, nominal width, ring stiffness and production date to be read years after installation.
All fittings are clearly marked. The permanent markings include the standard, the area of use, the name of the manufacturer, the wall thickness, the nominal diameter, the material, the stiffness class and additional manufacturer data as needed. The DN/OD 110mm – 315mm HS® drainage pipes are manufactured as plain ended with chamfered spigots. The ridge construction of the double coupler provides an additional safety benefit: the click against the coupler ridge from the spigot end can be clearly heard and is a sign of the correct installation. The pipes and fittings are pressure tested to 2.5 bar so that they can also be used in high water table areas.
Drainage pipe systems installed in housing development areas should be able to permanently resist root intrusion. This is the only way to prevent environmental impairments and incurring restoration costs as a result of the damage caused. The analysis of a unique simulated ‘in-pot’ experiment conducted by Rhineland Chamber of Agriculture in the Horticultural Centre in Essen, Germany over a period of more than 10 years between 1996 and 2007, proved that HS® pipes and fittings are totally resistant to root intrusion.
Funke HS® Demarcation Control Chambers- WRc Approved
HS® Demarcation chambers allow quick and easy access to private sewers and drainage networks. SFA7 requires the installation of an approved lateral drain demarcation chamber within 1 metre of the property boundary (preferably in the driveway) on any new build property where the final connection to the public adoptable sewer is outside the property boundary. The purpose of the chamber is to delineate the change of ownership between the private and the public sewer systems. The demarcation chamber will allow inspection of the condition of the pipework and the house connection at anytime without maintenace personnel requiring access to private property.
The HS®demarcation chamber is suitable for inspecting, rodding and jetting and can be utilised to carry out air tests. The double swept 45° angle of the T section base unit provides easy access for CCTV cameras in both directions.
Funke Connex® Saddles with 90° adjustable socket 0-11° for PVC Pipes – WRc Approved product
Connex® junctions are for the lateral connection of 160/200mm PVC sewer pipes into larger diameter main PVC sewer pipes (Such as HS® pipes and EN 1401 pipes)
Funke Fabekun® Saddles with 90° adjustable socket 0-13° for Concrete/Clay Pipes – WRc Approved product
Fabekun® junctions are for the lateral connection of plastic sewer pipes into concrete pipes in accordance with BS5911 and vitrified clay pipes in accordance with BS EN 295. Approved by all UK water companies.
The Funke VPC® Pipe Coupling allows pipes of the same nominal diameters made of different materials to be connected to one another safely, reliably, and with the best possible results. The Funke VPC® Pipe Coupling consists of a reducible sealing sleeve made of elastomer rubber, a centrically reducible securing cage made of plastic and two stainless-steel bands for applying force to achieve a uniform circumferential adjustment. This makes connecting on to clay or concrete a nice, simple task.
Developed in order to bridge the height differences in a sewer system, the Funke-ILA is an idea solution for this problem.
Available as standard for 160mm Ø, 200mm Ø and 250mm Ø pipework, backdrops for larger size pipes are available upon request. Designed to suit 1000mm Ø, 1200mm Ø & 1500mm Ø PCC chambers, we can also supply them for suitable for larger diameter chambers and square chambers.
They can be installed into new chambers or retrofitted, and allow for easier inspection and cleaning with the opening.
Another advantage of the backdrops is their space-saving installation which leads to a non-restricted chamber accessibility. When compared to external backdrops, a minimal soil excavation is required saving the contractor time and money.
