Title:
REINFORCED FITTING AND PIPE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2006058177
Kind Code:
B1
Abstract:
A reinforced fitting and pipe is provided that has increased durability during installation and service. The fitting and pipe may be formed with reinforcement ribs along a portion of the body and an annular reinforcing ring spaced inwardly from each end of the pipe and fitting. The reinforcement ribs and annular rings increase the durability and resistance to stress of the fitting and pipe, thereby avoiding the expense and time normally required for replacement or repair of a fitting and pipe that quickly fails. The fitting and pipe may have a tapered portion to further increase the stiffness of the bell portion. The bell portion of a fitting and pipe may further have a substantially Z-shaped configuration to further increase the stiffness of the bell portion.
