TRUSS PIPE®

put in an alt tag of the product nameUnrivaled 48 Year In-Ground Performance for Thermoplastic Gravity Sewer PVC Pipe

With more than 40 years of in-service use and hundreds of millions of feet installed, Contech TRUSS PIPE is the unchallenged performer. No other thermoplastic gravity sewer pipe offers the same degree of proven in-ground performance.

A unique, semi-rigid wall design consists of a double-wall system with concentric inner and outer walls braced by a truss-type structure. The truss voids are filled with lightweight Mearlcrete. TRUSS PIPE’s 200 psi minimum pipe stiffness provides unparalleled deflection control among thermoplastic gravity sewer pipe. Its strength, stiffness, joint tightness, durability and economy have made TRUSS PIPE the choice for engineers, specifiers, community officials and contractors.


Designed for sanitary sewer applications, TRUSS PIPE is a thermoplastic composite pipe available in 8”, 10”, 12” and 15” diameters. The unique, semi-rigid wall design consists of a double-wall system with concentric inner and outer walls braced by a truss-type structure. The truss voids are filled with lightweight Mearlcrete for additional stiffness and compressive strength. Its 200 psi minimum pipe stiffness provides unparalleled deflection control among thermoplastic gravity sewer pipe.
 
Benefits of TRUSS Pipe:
  • Wall and truss structure formed in a seamless, single thermoplastic extrusion of PVC which provides excellent resistance to chemicals normally found in sanitary systems
  • Watertight joints mean extremely low infiltration rates
  • Gasketed and solvent-welded joints available to meet the performance requirements of ASTM D 3212 or ASTM 2680, Section 10.4.1
  • High-stiffness pipe design minimizes deflection at pipe joints, preventing ground water infiltration
  • High-stiffness and beam strength stays straight and round, reducing stoppages
  • Glossy smooth interior with a Manning’s “n” value of 0.009 reduces internal flow resistance

TRUSS PIPE for Sanitary Sewers

TRUSS Pipe for Sanitary SewerWhen you’re looking for pipe strength on a demanding sewer project, TRUSS PIPE is the solution. Compared in strength to pipes like Ductile Iron and C-900, TRUSS PIPE offers strength, durability, and reliability at a fraction of the cost.
