Stormwater pipes - Uponor Infra

Storm water pipes/­transportation

Cities are expanding. Paved areas are increasing in number, resulting in the reduction of natural storm water run-off areas. At the same time, some countries in Northern Europe have had a couple of torrential downpours, normally occurring only once in a hundred years, several times in the last decade. The problem of flooding is affecting our way of life and is extremely costly for today's society. Cities must plan for better management of storm water.

At Uponor Infra, we have been actively working with the challenges of stormwater for many years. Innovative product development has led us to today's modern solutions for storm water management.

Uponor IQ

Uponor IQ storm water pipes are a complete pipe system in sizes 110 to 1200 mm, with a wide range of fittings. Each size is optimised for its requirements. All pipes are developed to meet respective requirement levels and can be specially adapted to the project's requirements.

With Uponor IQ Uponor provides a complete storm water system for use in road and street construction and in agriculture and forestry. For both large and small projects. The system is based equally on innovation and proven experience. Easy installations, adaptability and sustainable qualities are indicative.

All Uponor IQ pipes are made with an inline socket, which is the best way to avoid future problems. You reduce the number of joints by 50 % and thereby ensure water tightness with a reduced risk of future leakage and root penetration.

Sizes

Uponor IQ storm water pipes have an internal size of 110-2500 mm, which means that you obtain the flow capacity requested.

Range

We have the market's most complete range of fittings and chambers and can also produce special solutions.

Installation

Thanks to a trumpet-shaped sleeve, the pipes are easy to assemble, saving time and money during installation in many cases. An optimised pipe profile means that as a rule you can recharge with existing aggregates, which also means a cost saving.

Maintenance

The inline socketed pipe reduces the number of joints by 50 %, which also reduces the risk of root penetration. The grey inner layer meets the standard and facilitates future inspection and filming.

Quality

Uponor IQ storm water pipe up to size of 800 mm meets all requirements regarding bending, strain and water tightness - Nordic Poly Mark & EN-13476 (the largest sizes are made in accordance with the factory default as there is no possibility for external certification today). The pipe has a ring stiffness of SN8 and can be advantageously installed in areas where there is heavy traffic, such as motorways and railways.

We take responsibility for a sustainable future

Uponor IQ pipes are manufactured using modern technology in combination with PP material that provides an optimum solution with both a long service life and very high impact resistance. The same material (PP) in both the pipe and socket facilitates future recycling.

Weholite

Weholite is a unique structural wall pipe available in sizes up to 3,5 metres. With Weholite you can build a complete pipe system for the transport of fluids or air in the ground, water and in the air.

Weholite is a product with many areas of application. Uponor Infra is dimensioned and tailored to the customer's requirements and offers suggestions for the best solutions. Our combined knowledge and experience provide the customer with security.

The Weholite pipe is made of PE with a smooth interior and exterior and can be used in all types of gravity system. Choose from ring stiffness SN2, SN4 and SN8.

Weholite is spliced with the aid of various methods. The choice of method is decided by the installation concerned.  Choose from the following methods: Thread, Flex-seal, Rubber ring sleeve, Extruder welding or Z-joint welding. Contact us for more information.

Welding joints

With welding joints, the joint has the same watertightness and strength as the pipe. Extruded welded joints are recommended for Weholite pipes. Splicing can be done with hand extruders or with automated welding equipment. Equipment is available for both external and internal welding of the pipe or both and

Flanged connection

Flanged connection can be used for the following types of joint:

  • It must be possible to dismantle joints
  • Joints which have to be made underwater
  • For connections to other types of pipe

Thread coupling

The unique thread coupling on Weholite pipes can be used if a joint with a specific longitudinal tensile strength is required, e.g for relining. Standard joints are sand-resistant but not watertight. Thread couplings are available in pipe sizes 400-1800 mm.

Weholitesleeve

There are options to join the Weholite pipe with a sleeve with a rubber ring in sizes 400-1000mm.

FlexSeal

Another joint method is FlexSeal which is a rubber-sealed metallic sweep in stainless steel which provides a rapid and watertight seal.
