Where deep water and strong currents are encountered; in unstable channels and under flood stage conditions; where deep trenches, steep banks and other difficult approaches require special construction. At AMERICAN we make sure that Flex-Lok has the flexibility and toughness for river crossings, because this is THE RIGHT WAY to assure product sustainability.
Flex-Lok holds up to the job where significant ground movement due to earthquakes or where differential settlement can occur when transitioning from a direct bury installation into a fixed structure. These types of movements could break the backs of lower strength pipe materials. At AMERICAN we make sure that Flex-Lok has the beam strength, toughness, flexibility, and available extension for seismic transitions, because this is THE RIGHT WAY to assure product sustainability.
Where water and earth are subject to seasonal variations; where the underground pipeline must “give” with the subsurface movement caused by temperature change, moisture change and other factors that make it difficult to obtain a supporting pipe foundation. Flex-Lok is the enduring choice. At AMERICAN, we make sure that Flex-Lok has the ring stiffness, beam strength, flexibility and toughness for swamp and wetland crossings. And for installations in areas contaminated with chemicals that would penetrate the wall of plastic pipe, Flex-Lok is the best choice. We can also ensure that the joints have the appropriate gasket material for the situation. This is THE RIGHT WAY to assure system security and product sustainability.
