Overview



TRUSS PIPE® Double Wall Pipe

TRUSS PIPE® Double Wall Pipe

A semi-rigid gravity sewer pipe that provides 200 psi minimum pipe stiffness and unparalleled deflection.

Description


Gravity Sewer Pipe with 200 psi Stiffness

TRUSS PIPE is a thermoplastic composite, double-wall pipe with concentric inner and outer walls braced by a truss-type structure. The truss voids are filled with lightweight Mearlcrete for additional stiffness and compressive strength. The result is a semi-rigid pipe that provides 200 psi minimum pipe stiffness and unparalleled deflection – the ideal thermoplastic gravity sewer PVC pipe.

Traditional rigid pipe materials can rupture when subjected to non-uniform loading, as they lack the ability to adjust to trench load variations. TRUSS PIPE combines high stiffness with flexibility; allowing it to resist variable loads while maintaining shape control. And with more than forty years of in-service use and hundreds of millions of feet installed, TRUSS PIPE is the unchallenged performer.

TRUSS PIPE’s glossy smooth interior with a Manning’s “n” value of 0.009 reduces internal flow resistance.

TRUSS PIPE can be installed in variable trench conditions to more than 40 feet and withstand H-20 live loading with less than one feet of cover.

Its strength, stiffness, joint tightness, durability, and economy have made TRUSS PIPE the choice for engineers, specifiers, and contractors.

Applications


TRUSS PIPE® Double Wall Pipe

TRUSS PIPE for Sanitary Sewers

When you’re looking for pipe strength on a demanding sewer project, TRUSS PIPE is the solution. Compared in strength to pipes like Ductile Iron and C-900, TRUSS PIPE offers strength, durability, and reliability at a fraction of the cost.
