Polypipe describes it as its most efficient surface water drainage system to date.

Its optimised pipe profile maximises strength and minimises weight to save on material, transport and onsite handling.

The range is available as both plain ended and integrally socketed pipes, in sizes from 100mm to 600mm in diameter, with a range of fittings.

New Ridgidrain is designed to be used in all civils and infrastructure projects wherever traditional Ridgidrain systems are specified, or rigid materials such as concrete and clay.

Claimed benefits of New Ridgidrain include longer lengths and fewer joints than its clay and concrete counterparts for improved resilience to leakage and root ingress, ability to withstand ground movement and differential settlement, and extremely smooth bore for ease of maintenance.

Polypipe marketing and development director Jason Shingleton said: “Polypipe’s expert teams continuously explore new ways to meet the needs of the construction industry and where performance criteria and standards allow, we always maximise the sustainability of our products by using post consumer plastics in their manufacture. We are delighted to add the New Ridgidrain, with its perfect blend of technology and sustainability, to our long line of innovations and continue to invest heavily in research and new production technology to offer customers products which benefit the environment while meeting all of the performance demands of today’s civils and infrastructure projects.”
