Acu-Fire – Superior HDPE Pipeline Solution for Hydrant, Hose Reel, and Sprinkler Systems

Safeguarding lives and property against fire hazards is paramount in every project’s design.

The Acu-Fire pipe system offers unparalleled properties, making it the preferred choice for underground fire main pipelines. Leveraging our extensive expertise in HDPE piping, Acu-Tech ensures swift fulfillment of your requirements for red-striped pipe lengths tailored for hydrants, hose reels, and sprinkler systems.

We maintain a ready stock of the most common lengths and diameters while also accommodating bespoke sizes upon request.

Identified by its black color with distinctive red stripes, Acu-Fire PE pipe provides easy recognition and is available in standard 6 or 12-meter lengths, as well as coils for 32mm and 63mm pipes

Key Features & Benefits:

  • Red stripe for clear identification.
  • Heat-fused jointing systems create a monolithic structure that is stronger than the pipe itself, and completely leak-free. This eliminates rubber seals which can fail over time, also solving root intrusion problems, and provides pipeline integrity when installed in unstable ground.
  • No anchor or thrust blocks are needed to prevent joint blow-out when using heat fusion welded jointing. Correctly made heat fusion joints may be expected to last the life of the system and withstand thrust/end loads equal to the strength of the pipe/ fitting without adding external restraint or thrust blocking.
  • Extreme flexibility of pipe allows cold bending to accommodate minor changes in direction.
  • High flow capacity due to smooth bore and end-to-end jointing, and standard 12 metre lengths halve the number of joints required.
  • Manufactured to AS/NZS 4130 “Polyethylene – PE – pipes for pressure applications” and AS/NZS 4129 ” Fittings for polyethylene (PE) pipes for pressure applications”
  • May be installed under concrete slabs (refer to AS 3500.1.2003, Section 5.5.4 “Under concrete slabs”) Max operating pressure of 1600 kPa at 20°C, based on minimum 50 year design life and including a safety factor of 1.25.
  • System can sustain short term pressure testing up to 2000 kPa at 20°C. Testing can begin 1 hour after the last weld has cooled, and also can be undertaken with an open trench provided the temperature of the pipeline is not higher than 20°C.
  • Range of flange connection kits, valves, hydrant sets and hose reels available.
  • Acu-Fire is available in 32 mm, 63 mm, 125 mm, 180 mm and 250 mm diameters as standard stock items.
  • Coils are available in 32 mm and 63 mm. Larger sizes made to order.
  • Acu-Fire HDPE pipe can be joined with electrofusion fittings or butt welding equipment.
