Versatility Unleashed

Our universal black pipes aren't just pipes; they're versatile solutions ready to tackle a multitude of applications:

Above Ground: Ideal for potable water(*)

Below Ground: Perfect for a diverse range of applications, including hydroelectricity schemes, geothermal pipework, buried fire protection ring mains, sewerage systems, rainwater drainage, fish farming (cage frames), marine outfalls, irrigation systems, and ducting for electricity cabling in renewable energy projects.

Joining Made Easy

Our universal black pipes seamlessly come together using industry-standard electrofusion and butt-fusion welding techniques. Plus, we offer a unique range of Redman™ hydraulic compression fittings and compatible mechanical fittings.

(*) Please note: Always seek approval from the water undertaker before installing PE black pipe above ground for potable water use.
