Designers

Being a Designer means pushing the limits technically, financially and in terms of quality, now more than ever before. PVC piping systems provide Designers with the most advanced solutions ever. Piping systems producers and engineers are challenged every day and will be glad to participate with knowledge and solutions in any project.

The advantages for Designers:

• Unlimited technical and design options.

• Underground applications: a life span of at least a century.

• Inside building structures: a life span of at least 50 years – the normal design life of a building.

• Applications include water, sewerage, soil and waste, electro and gas.

• No degradation by corrosion.

• Excellent resistance against many chemicals and effluents, including acids, oils, fats and alcohols.

• Low expansion coefficient, high strength and good insulation (thermal and sound).

• Favourable balance between rigidity and flexibility.

• Maximum strength using a minimum of material.

• Unmatched flow capacities.

• Low maintenance.

• Easy and quick to install.

• PVC-U sewer pipe systems have 6 times fewer defective joints compared to traditional pipe materials.

• PVC piping systems have higher fire-resistance compared to other thermoplastics.

• PVC piping systems do not contribute to the development of a fire.

• Very suitable in renovation projects where fire safety is an issue.

• Tailor made solutions on request.

• Resistant to earth movement, high pressure peaks or even earthquakes.

• Environmental-friendly production processes.

• Sustainable: non-toxic, cradle-to-grave or even cradle-to-cradle (off-cuts can be recycled).

• PVC piping systems are covered by EU standards governing properties including dimensions, mechanical and physical properties

• By standardization pipes and joints from all manufacturers are inter-connectable.

• Installation at temperatures below 5°C is possible using impact modified or oriented PVC piping systems.

• Off-site fabrication – prefabrication is possible

• Low permeability, so excellent resistance to permeation of groundwater pollution.

• Highest strength per unit weight, leading to maximum hydraulic capacity, low pumping energy and low operational costs over the life of the network.

• High dimensional stability which is important during assembly of the system during installation.

• The perfect material for elastomeric sealing rings and push-fit jointing, giving water-tight solutions.
