- Standard Towing Head
- Bolt-On Towing Head
The Standard Towing Head is one of a range of Towing Heads which the company manufactures to provide a quick, simple and reliable method of attaching a winch wire, or other pulling device, to a plastic pipe. Towing Heads avoid the need to cut into the pipe or the fusing of additional fittings in order to gain a pulling fixture. Removal is also simply and quickly carried out.
All models are manufactured to a high specification using good quality steels and aluminium. They are zinc plated for corrosion protection.
The Standard Towing Head, is best suited to general pipe pulling operations such as slip lining and pipe uncoiling, as they do not fully seal the pipe against the ingress of fluids and fine particles.
Each size of Standard Towing Head is designed to work over a range of wall thicknesses for a given pipe size, usually SDR 11 to 17.6, but other ranges are available.
They are manufactured to suit all types and makes of plastic pipe in the size range 16mm (1/2") to 630mm (24"), with specific sizes being manufactured to suit pipes in all countries. Extensive stocks are maintained of all common sizes.
