Bends

Bends are required to be installed where you need to change the direction of rigid PVC conduit in a trench. Tri Underground manufacture these across all 3 of our branches and each branch has different capabilities to suit the market demand in each state.

Standard bends come with a female-female socket (FFS) meaning each end of the bend is socketed so spigot conduit can be connected. We can also make bends with a male-female (MFS spigot/socket) which can be used both for connecting multi-part bends and/or socket end of the conduit. Our bends codes have a simple layout to distinguish the options we have available. Typically, our codes read: Conduit Type, Conduit Size, Degree, Radius, Sockets. Examples below.

LDE 100 90 600 FFS

Light Duty Conduit, 100mm Size, 90 Degree, 600 Radius, Female-Female Socket

HDE 200 22 4000 MFS

Heavy Duty Conduit, 200mm Size, 22.5 Degree, 4000 Radius, Male-Female Socket

Our standard degrees kept on the shelf are 11.25,15,22.5,30,45,60 and 90 degrees however custom degrees can be manufactured upon request where possible. We have bend capabilities from 100mm up to 10,000mm radius however the degree & radius combination is determined by the conduit size. Speak to our team about what options are available to suit your project requirements.

For larger degree and radius bends, we can manufacture these as multi-part bends that can be assembled on site to achieve project requirement. Multi-part bends can provide a safer option for onsite handling due to the length and weight of the assembled item.
