FRANCESVILLE, Ind., Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fratco is excited to announce the release of its newest line of innovative drainage products. "FlexCorr" is a one-of-a-kind solution to one of the biggest problems in the drainage industry. Many drainage installers are booked over-capacity and the supply of professional installation cannot keep up with demand.
The problem? Drainage installs, when done right, are long and tedious processes. The installation of "mains", which have been rigid sticks, is the most labor intensive part of the install.
Fratco's new FlexCorr product functions as a "main" and comes spooled and ready for modern automated installation. While no ASTM standards have yet been established for this product, FlexCorr's specifications exceed ASTM standards. It promises to shave days off installation, decreasing costs, and allowing installers to keep up with demand.
"FlexCorr will revolutionize the drainage industry and we're confident it will be the go-to dual-wall pipe within a few years," says Chris Overmyer, Fratco CEO. "Fratco was among the first to move from the old clay tile to plastics, the first to try recycled materials, and we've been defining the cutting edge in this industry for a century."
Saving countless hours will help installers to serve more customers at a lower cost. In agriculture alone, FlexCorr should make a major impact on crop-loss due to water management and flooding problems. With better water-management, crop yields can increase as much as 47%, making a significant impact on the global food supply.
- 100% virgin high quality polyethylene plastics.
- Lower-density, flexible inner-liner performs better in long term stress crack resistance and cold temperature brittleness tests required by ASTM.
- Use FlexCorr as you would use any product needing to meet ASTM F2306, ASTM F667, and ASTM F405.
- Currently, Fratco is initially offering the pipe in a variety of sizes (8" to 15" in diameter) and styles (plain, perforated, and narrow slot), which are compatible with current fittings.
Fratco is a leading manufacturer of drainage products including HDPE drainage pipes and fittings. A 4th generation, family-owned business, Fratco began as a local clay tile kiln in 1923 and has grown to a 4 location, state-of-the-art producer of the drainage pipes for use in agricultural and commercial drainage applications.
