RED-E-DUCT is the result of 10 years of product design and development. Our production and quality assurance standards ensure RED-E-DUCT products will meet and exceed project specifications and test requirements.
Design engineers and project Owners can trust RED-E-DUCT to provide reliable, consistent performance in the most stringent design conditions.
Production occurs in in one of Forterra’s precast concrete facilities strategically located to serve the U.S. and Eastern Canadian markets.
All RED-E-DUCT products are manufactured by a Forterra production facility that is certified by one or more of the following agencies:
- American Concrete Pipe Association (ACPA)
- National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA)
- Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI)
Testing Ensures Consistent Performance
All RED-E-DUCT products meet stringent design and test requirements according to your project requirements. Our comprehensive quality control program ensures the product meets specific requirements and will perform as intended.
Superior high-performance concrete
Every RED-E-DUCT product is manufactured using Forterra’s proprietary concrete mix designs. Concrete batches are tested to ensure compressive strength, and thermal resistivity (Rho values) are in accordance to your project specifications. This eliminates any variance in the quality and consistency of the concrete.
Concrete Compressive Strength Tests
Concrete batches are tested daily to verify and ensure all products will meet specified handling and loading conditions.
Every RED-E-DUCT component is serialized according to batch number ensuring traceability.
Thermal resistivity (Rho) testing
Concrete thermal resistivity verification is performed in-house or by independent 3rd party testing. Thermal dryout curves are available and testing can be tailored to your exact project requirements.
GASKET JOINT – LEAKAGE TEST
Gasketed joints have been tested to the internal pressure of 25psi as required by NEMA TC-2 Section 5.4. Test results verify no leak performance and meet the requirements of NEMA TC-2 Section 4.1.3.
Joint Shear and Product Flexural Testing
RED-E-DUCT is rated to accommodate HS20 and HL93 Truck Live Loads.
