Above Ground Installation

There are many projects where HOBAS GRP Pipe Systems are installed above ground. Typical examples are pipes suspended on a bridge or highway, laid across estuarine flats or where the natural ground is hard rock and it would be costly to excavate a trench. Above ground installation is also applied in many industrial pipe projects. Excellent resistance to UV-light, a variety of stiffness classes and the small expansion coefficient are some of the reasons why HOBAS GRP Pipe Systems are ideal for above ground installations.


Whether on suspensions, pillars or any other kind of support, the light weight of HOBAS GRP Pipes facilitate manual installation. Since above ground pipelines are visible, the coloring of the product is not to be disregarded: The naturally beige-grey pipes perfectly blend in with many constructions but may also be colored with other shades to match their environment.
