When Dundee-based developer Discovery Homes sought a flexible and easy to install pipework solution, REHAU’s RAUTITAN was the ideal innovation for their needs.
Initially, Discovery Homes used copper for the heating and plumbing pipework but as this was extremely labour intensive, the RAUTITAN universal pipework solution was something they were eager to try.
RAUTITAN can be used for both drinking water and heating systems, and as it is made from flexible and light PE-Xa polymer, it is simple to install, plus it is corrosion resistant. It is also available in pre-insulated options.
Discovery Homes co-owner Grant White said: “The RAUTITAN Stabil comes in a coil, so our installers simply pull off the amount they need, bend it and fit it.
“There’s no hot work and sections can be easily joined together using REHAU’s EVERLOC joints.”
RAUTITAN utilises a compression sleeve jointing system to produce a permanently sealed joint without O-rings, even at temperatures as low as -10°C.
The specialist RAUTOOL device, means installers simply expand the pipe end, insert the fitting and apply the compression sleeve.
Grant said: “We invested in the RAUTOOL hand gun for the compression joints, which makes the process very quick and hassle free for our onsite installers.
“And we know they are guaranteed not to leak so its peace of mind for us that the quality of the plumbing in our properties is exceptionally high.”
RAUTITAN is fully certified as hygienic for drinking water, with a smooth inner surface preventing deposits from forming in the pipe.
The compression joint fittings mean the pipework is cavity-free, eliminating the risk of microbial contamination too. RAUTITAN is also suitable for domestic heating and can be used for installations through the floor, skirting board or wall.
The RAUTITAN range features a selection of pipe sizes, fittings and accessories, including compact stainless steel heating pipe manifolds, making it a flexible solution for a variety of different applications.
Grant concluded: “Having one pipe which does everything is cost effective and efficient on site, and as its so quick to assemble, RAUTITAN is the ideal choice to match the pace of our builds.
‘It is also superior quality and comes with a long warranty, for extra assurance that our customers have pipework that will last and not cause them any unexpected headaches.”
