SPEL is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Australian distributorship of Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc – ADS Pipes.
ADS is the leading manufacturer of high performance thermoplastic corrugated pipes, providing superior drainage solutions for a wide range of applications. Used in both residential and non-residential development, ADS pipes suit projects in civil stormwater, agricultural irrigation, mining and public infrastructure.
The pipes are made of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), ensuring high impact strength, flexibility, and corrosion resistance. This makes them suitable for installation in acid sulphate soils and saltwater applications.
The key advantages of ADS Pipes:
- 100 Year Design Life
- Very high Abrasion Resistance
- UV Resistant
- Low Carbon Footprint
- Inert to harsh chemicals and acid sulphates
- Unaffected by Marine growth
SPEL recently supplied ADS pipes to a coastal drainage site. Apart from the tolerance to corrosive elements like saltwater, the pipes’ composition also assists with marine biofouling – the growth of colonising forms that impact the long term performance of the product. ADS pipe’s waxy surface is difficult for marine wildlife to adhere to (e.g. barnacles, oysters, mussels), making it the ideal solution for this environment.
