These pipe and fittings, which also conform to SCH40, are ideal for construction projects such as:
pool furniture, garden and horticulture frames, protection shelters for items such as tools, quad bikes etc. as well as dog / pet beds and all type of racks and frames. The only limitation on the uses of this range is your imagination!
Short answer - No. Furniture Grade pipe and fittings are manufactured to USA specifications and so are
different internal and external diameters to other pipes you will find in the UK.
What Makes These Pipes and Fittings Different to Standard PVC Pipe and Fittings?
Furniture pipe and fittings are manufactured with a formulation with added UV stabilisers that, as well
as increasing their life span outdoors, makes for a more ductile material. This makes them physically
stronger and less likely to crack under physical pressure. With the exception of snap clamps, which are
UV stable for approx. 2 years.
These parts and pipe are manufactured without any manufacturers' markings, making them much more
pleasing to the eye.
The sockets of furniture grade fittings are more extended than normal pressure sockets and chamfered on
the end, which gives them additional support, as well as improved aesthetics.
The finish on furniture/display grade fittings is more glossy than standard PVC pipe, and is protected
from scratching during manufacture, packaging and transportation.
Schedule 40 Strength With Impact Resistant Formula
All our PVC furniture grade pipes and fittings are manufactured to North American Schedule 40 standards. This means
they have a heavy duty thicker wall and are far more robust than standard plumbing pipes found in the UK. See the
video below for a demonstration:
