Haribo factory makes a sweet case for Hepworth Clay pipes

Hepworth SuperSleve Clay pipes are Haribo’s choice for drainage at the new 30,700m2 factory in Castleford, UK.
Hepworth SuperSleve are easy to cut, and with the benefit of being able to use recycled aggregate as bedding material, Hepworth clay pipes were the ideal choice, offering Haribo long term performance.

For use in commercial or industrial construction, adoptable sewers, highways, and general building works, the Hepworth SuperSleve system is available in 100mm, 150mm, 225mm and 300mm diameters, and consists of plain ended pipe and fittings with additional push fit flexible couplings.

With a lifetime jetting guarantee, Hepworth pipes are able to withstand jetting pressure of 7500psi, at 20 gallons per minute held static for five minutes, allowing blockages to be cleared with reduced risk, and in less time.

Clay drainage pipes also allow specifiers to reduce installation costs as well as environmental impact, by minimising the volume of primary aggregate needed from quarries. They have tremendous compressive strength which allows installation with reduced amounts of granular bed and surround, recycled material, or even reused as-dug material if suitable.
