Standard Concrete Pipes
FP McCann Easi-Slide Pipes
Note: All junctions are to be fitted on their side. Junctions are not designed for vertical surface compaction.

Pipe Diameters DN1800 to DN2400 are designed and manufactured to incorporate Easi-Lift jointing and lifting system.
To lift the pipes, select the two short legs A and B on the chain set. Place the spherical coupling over the cast in anchor and engage by turning the tail of the head link down to the concrete. The pipe can then be lifted as normal. Never pass slings or other lifting appliances through the barrel and never lift more than one pipe at a time.
Ensure that the seal is of the correct size, and is not damaged.
Ensure the tension is even. Ensure pipe sockets and spigots are not damaged. Position the rubber ring on the end of the spigot end.
Do not use Lubricants when jointing Easi-Slide Pipes Ensure each pipe to be laid is aligned with the laid pipeline and is fully supported along its length. Some methods of joining pipes are shown below.
To joint the pipe using the chain system. Attach the long leg C to the already laid pipe and the short leg B to the pipe to be laid. Take up the slack in the chains with the lifting pulley over the anchor of the laid pipe, and increase the upward force to joint the pipes. When jointed, ensure that there is no excessive slew or misalignment, this can easily be checked by reference to the joint gap.
Jointing - Joint Gap
- All dimensions are in mm.
- Weights in kg are based on a concrete density of 2500kg/m³.
- Where relevant pipes are manufactured in accordance with BS EN 1916:2002.
- Normal practice is to determine branch laterals to the main line by looking up the flow i.e. from the socket end.
- Note right hand or left hand junctions (viewed socket to spigot) should be specified when ordering reduced junctions in pipe diameters DN1800 and above.
- Note lifting chains are not suitable for joining purposes in pipes of diameter DN2400.
- All junctions to be installed on their side only.
