RailPipe® - drainage pipe

The first twin-wall pipe with EBA certification

RailPipe® with EBA certification – for all fields of track drainage

The RailPipe drainage pipe is the first twin-wall pipe to meet all the standards an requirements of Deutsche Bahn AG an the German Federal Railway Authority (Eisenbahn-Bundesamt, EBA) and can therefore be used for all pressure ranges of the roadbed and track.

RailPipe® tried-and-tested for many years

Drainage pipes must withstand extreme stresses in the drainage of railway tracks. Using high-quality polypropylene and optimised profile geometry, FRÄNKISCHE offers an extremely hard-wearing drainage pipe for track drainage.

The RailPipe drainage pipe is the first twin-wall pipe to meet all the standards and requirements of Deutsche Bahn AG and the German Federal Railway Authority (Eisenbahn-Bundesamt, EBA) and can therefore be used for all pressure ranges of the roadbed and track.

The pipe is 100 % recyclable. The black outside guarantees high UV protection.

RailPipe is delivered in straight lengths of 6 m including coupling and sealing ring. It can be cut to length as desired and remaining pieces can be reused using couplings.

RailPipe complies with the extremely demanding requirements of Deutsche Bahn AG in terms of impact strength and fl exural fatigue strength.

Its round shape and smooth inside create a cross-section which is benefi cial in terms of hydraulics and maintenance.

We guarantee RailPipe’s continuous quality with permanent internal quality assurance and external quality control through the offi cial testing centre of MFPA Leipzig.

RailPipe® – drainage pipe SN 16

Locally perforated (LP), totally perforated (TP) and multi-purpose (MP) SN 16 PP pipe in proven twin-wall design (corrugated outside,smooth inside), according to DIN 4262-1 R2 type and DIN 13476.

Fulfils the special requirements of DBS 918064 of Deutsche Bahn AG. Features manufacturer-related product qualification (HPQ).

With EBA certification for the inside pressure range.


Specifically designed for track drainage (for all pressure ranges) or for applications with extreme requirements.

One pipe for all pressure ranges – Application of RailPipe® now also in the inside pressure range

two-track system

one-track system

With the certification of the German Federal Railway Authority (Eisenbahn-Bundesamt, EBA) for applications in the inside pressure range, the pipe can also be installed right under the tracks. With this certificate, RailPipe offers absolute safety combined with maximum performance – not only outside of and in the external pressure range of the roadbed and track but also in the inside pressure range. The solution for contracting companies when it is about sustainable and efficient drainage of railway tracks. The numerous available nominal diameters from DN 150 to 600 give an ample scope for individual planning. One pipe for all applications – this does not only mean freedom in terms of planning, but also reduces logistic complexity at the construction site.

Striking advantages
