Polypipe ‘saddles’ up with Flexseal for new product development

Posted: Tuesday 24th April 2012

Polypipe, the UK’s dedicated sustainable drainage and water management expert, has announced the launch of a brand new product as part of its Ridgistorm-XL Large Diameter Pipe system - the Ridgistorm-XL Saddle.

Developed in partnership with Flexseal, Global leader in drainage couplings, the new Ridgistorm-XL Saddle range allows installers to connect 150mm lateral pipes to Polypipe’s market-leading Ridgistorm-XL pipe system, which feature pipes up to 2100mm diameter.

The saddle has achieved WRc Approved status specifically for use with the Ridgistorm-XL large diameter pipe following a rigorous programme to prove the integrity of the seals between both the main and lateral pipe with the saddle – presenting itself as a leak-tight and secure connection that is ideal for both new and retrofit projects.

Emma Thompson, Marketing Communications Manager at Polypipe, commented: “The new Ridgistorm-XL Saddle offers many benefits to our customers, with short lead times, along with quick and easy onsite installation, the saddle can bring cost savings to a project.

“As the Saddle is available in 15 different configurations to suit the various diameters and pipe profiles of the Ridgistorm-XL large diameter pipe system, our technical team are well placed to advise customers on which saddle is required for their project.

Dave Milnes, Product Development Engineer at Flexseal commented; “Gaining WRc Approved status for this product partnership shows the benefits of industry leaders working together – we’re very much looking forward to seeing the success continue on-site”
