An Introduction to Flexible Adaptors
Put in the simplest of terms, flexible adaptors are a type of flexible drainage coupling that can help connect two differing pipes together regardless of their respective sizes. Due to their flexible nature, these pipe coupling products accommodate any potential pipe misalignment, deflection, or movement, as well as providing a secure connection and seal in any drainage or plumbing applications. When implemented into a drainage system, flexible adaptors could present a host of different benefits, some of which we will be detailing for you to understand the impact these could have for your potential project.
Features and Benefits of Flexible Adaptors
One of the main advantages of a flexible adaptors is the versatility that they present, as they can be used to connect pipes of various sizes and materials, such as PVC and cast iron which are frequently encountered in a majority of drainage systems. However, the benefits of flexible adaptors aren't just limited to this, as using an adaptor drain coupling in a project can offer ease of installation, even in the tightest spaces.
Flexible adaptors are also known for their durability. They are made from high-quality rubber materials as well as UPVC, both of which are resistant to corrosion and temperature changes, which allows them to withstand the harsh conditions of many plumbing and drainage applications. This means flexible adaptors have a long service life and can keep the pipes leak free. The watertight seal is a product of this intentional construction, resulting in buildings, surrounding areas, and drainage systems are all protected. What's more is that despite all these benefits, these flexible adaptors also manage to remain relatively inexpensive and cost effective. This benefit also apllies to the range of plastic end caps we also have on site.
Flexible Adaptors at The Drainage Shop
At the Drainage Shop, we have a host of different options to potentially choose from when it comes to flexible adaptors from within our range of pipe couplings. All of these clay to plastic adaptors are designed with the use of a high quality UPVC sleeve, as well as some strong stainless-steel bands, which help to hold the sleeve in place by clamping around the pipe. These flexible adaptors come in a wide range of different sizes, ranging from 56-63mm, all the way up to 360-385mm. Therefore, regardless of the size of pipe you have in your drainage system, we are likely to have an appropriate solution. Some of the most popular drainage solutions in this range are the 4" clay to 110mm plastic economy flexible adaptor, 4" clay to 110mm plastic economy flexible adaptor, and flexible uPVC - clay adaptor 160-180mm x 180-200mm AC6000.
In addition to this, should you wish to purchase a number of these clay to plastic adaptors, we also offer some packs which include multiple couplings. These include the 4” clay to 110mm plastic economy flexible adaptor pack of 10 and Pack of 50 options. Therefore, your project could be made even more cost effective.
All of these clay to plastic adaptors come with some push fit technology, meaning they can easily be positioned into a drainage system without an overabundance of machinery, apparatus, tools, or manpower. Despite the ease of fitting them, once in position they still manage to maintain that ideal watertight seal which we have already detailed, all whilst accommodating any potential movement of its attached pipes.
