HDPE – Corrugated Drainage

Stormwater systems have traditionally been constructed with concrete pipes. They are rigid and perceived to be the most cost-effective system for drainage works.

HDPE Corrugated drainage pipe has been accepted globally as a real, engineered alternative solution to conventional concrete pipes for non-pressure drainage applications.

The Australian market in recent years has adopted this material as a sustainable system, delivering on a range of benefits thus reducing whole of life project costs. Combine this product with stormwater management systems such as Frankische, and you deliver end to end solutions that are sustainable and environmentally friendly for the improvement of drainage for livability.

Our environmental challenges around water scarcity continue to create unease for the future generations of tomorrow. Protecting our precious resource is vital, and this can be done through the development and acceptance of improved stormwater management solutions.
