REHAU has supplied its specialist pre-insulated polymer pipework to two social housing developments for Sheffield City Council.
The company’s RAUVITHERM pipework was specified to replace the original steel pipework which has been in replace since the 1970s. Both sites had suffered from pipe leakages in recent years and it was decided that a replacement was needed to eliminate further costs and inconveniences to residents.
Specified for its corrosion resistance and ease of installation, RAUVITHERM PE-Xa pipe is manufactured using polymer over traditional steel. The system is supplied in continuous lengths up to 330m so there are fewer joints required and use REHAU EVERLOC leak free compression sleeve technology.
The Sheffield project required RJ Utility Services to replace the pipework in two separate networks, feeding close to 170 properties. For one of the projects, a variety of pipe sizes from the RAUVITHERM range were chosen for all of the distribution pipework, from the plant room into the individual properties.
REHAU will be exhibiting at Plumbex 2018 this month, where it will present its new RAUTITAN offer to Irish customers at the Dublin show.Posted in Articles, Building Industry Events, Building Industry News, Building Products & Structures, Exhibitions and Conferences, Heating Systems, Controls and Management, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning - HVAC, Insulation, Pipes, Pipes & Fittings, Plumbing, Posts
