Connectors and Pipes
What pipe do I buy for connectors I purchased from Klever Cages?
The pipe needs to be AS 1477 Series 1 , this is plumbing PVC pressure pipe.
I have listed the outside diameter of the PVC pipe to fit our connectors below :
20mm PVC pipe outside diameter = 26.67mm
25mm PVC pipe outside diameter = 33.40mm
32mm PVC pipe outside diameter = 42.10mm
40mm PVC pipe outside diameter = 48.26mm
50mm PVC pipe outside diameter = 60.32mm
The above photo is an example of the writing on a Holman brand PVC pipe purchased from Bunnings to fit Klever Cages PVC connectors.
Can I use electrical conduit?
Unfortunately not as the outside diameter is different to PVC plumbing pipe.
Can I use DWV PVC pipe?
Unfortunately not as DWV pipe is drain, waste and vent pipe and our connectors only fit standard PVC plumbing pressure pipe.
Where can I buy the pipe?
We sell 1m lengths 20mm and 25mm clean pipe on our website or we have found that the PVC components fit best to PVC pressure pipe (plumbing) available from major hardware and plumbing stores.
Why does my pipe not fit the connectors?
There can be confusion about the sizing of the pipe used to construct with the PVC components.
Hopefully I am able to assist with clearing this up below:
- The first thing about PVC pipe is that the size written on it is determined by the nominal bore size diameter not the actual and not the outside size . To get the OD (outside diameter) it will be the internal plus the wall thickness.
- So this means for a PVC pipe marked 20mm the outside diameter will not be 20mm, it will be the nominal internal diameter plus the wall size giving the total diameter.
What is the maximum span for my PVC pipe when constructing my project?
We recommend the below lengths for the different size pipes.
- 20mm pipe no more than 1m
- 25mm pipe no more than 1.5m
Then from there it is about half a meter each size up. It also depends on what you are using the structure for but without load the above is correct.
If you would like to go longer than this you can use tee pieces or L-tees to give the structure some reinforcement.
Will my project be OK in the sun. UV Stabiliser
Both the connectors and the pipes that we sell are UV stabilised. We have the pipes made custom for us and they contain (Titanium Dioxide) about 1.5 PPHR so they will last outdoors in our conditions.
Do the pipes contain lead
There is no lead in the stabiliser used these days.
Calcium Zinc stabiliser (CaZn) is now used.
What do I do if I require a part that I cannot see on your website?
If you cannot see a part that you require to finish your project please send us an email and we can see what we can do.
