FP McCann’s concrete pipes are manufactured in accordance with BS EN 1916 and BS 5911 and certified by Quality Assessment under the Kitemark Scheme and ISO 9001.

Concrete is much more durable than any other kind of pipe. It can carry more load at any given time and gains strength over time. It cannot be weakened by heat, moisture, mould or pests, nor will it rust.

The superior strength of concrete pipes enables recycled aggregate to be used as a bedding material, reducing costs and environmental impact during installation. Since a full trench depth of granular material can actually be more expensive than the pipe, significant pipe bedding savings can be achieved when using a concrete pipe instead.

Being naturally fire-resistant, concrete forms a highly effective barrier to fire spread and it does not emit any toxic fumes when affected by fire. It will not produce smoke or drip molten particles. Therefore, in the majority of applications, concrete can be described as virtually ‘fireproof’. Concrete’s inbuilt fire resistance not only maintains an airtight construction that stops smoke spreading, but also has the ability to maintain the pipe’s strength during a fire.

FP McCann’s precast concrete pipes are manufactured to DC Class 4, in accordance with the recommendations of BRE Special Digest 1.
