Specialist Tubosider Installation
Tubosider is a prefabricated steel pipe system used for underground stormwater management. The installation process involves several steps, starting with site preparation and surveying to ensure that the site is suitable for the installation of the system. The terrain should be relatively flat, stable, and able to withstand the weight of the system.
Once the site has been prepared, the steel pipe sections are laid end to end and joined together using couplers. The pipe sections come in a variety of diameters and lengths between 1 and 3 meters to suit the specific requirements of the project.
Before backfilling, a geotextile material such as terram is laid on the ground to provide a stable base for the pipes and prevent fine particles from infiltrating the system. Terram is a permeable material that allows water to drain through while providing a stable foundation for the pipes.
The backfilling process is carried out in layers, with each layer being compacted to ensure stability. The backfill material used is typically a granular material such as gravel or crushed stone that provides good drainage and helps distribute the weight of the system evenly.
Once the backfilling process is complete, the Tubosider system is ready to be used. It is highly durable and can withstand the weight of heavy vehicles and machinery without sustaining damage. It is also resistant to corrosion, making it a low-maintenance option for stormwater management systems.
Overall, the installation of Tubosider is a well-engineered process that provides a reliable solution for stormwater management. With proper installation and maintenance, it can provide long-lasting performance and withstand the demands of a variety of applications
