Ridgistorm-XL Large Diameter Pipe System

Ridgistorm-XL: The Versatile Solution

Ridgistorm-XL is an engineered thermoplastic large diameter pipe system, in diameters 750-3000mm, for use in a wide variety of applications including surface water, foul water, combined sewers, large scale flood alleviation schemes, renewable energy and even displacement ventilation.


It is robust, reliable and long lasting, with a design life in excess of 100 years, making it one of the most adaptable large diameter piping solutions in the UK. By analysing site conditions and installation parameters, the system can be engineered to exact stiffness classifications so that it meets the required loading specification for a project without being over or under specified.
