Geberit launches a new multi-layer supply piping system to the UK market after eight years of intensive research and development.
Geberit FlowFit is the manufacturer’s biggest product launch to the UK in recent years and will combine the versatility of Geberit’s multi-layer piping system together with the installation benefits of Geberit’s unique press-fit method.
FlowFit is suitable for both potable water and heating applications. The pipe consists of three layers, a central aluminium layer which makes the pipe strong yet flexible, with a plastic (PE-RT) layer either side of this to prevent corrosion and ensure a smooth internal bore.
As well as versatility, Geberit FlowFit also incorporates press-fit technology, offering project teams efficiencies and time savings across jobs.
Available in eight dimensions with only two pressing jaws necessary for the entire range, constant tool changes are now history. Effortless and intuitive to use, FlowFit fittings and jaws are colour-coded to indicate the tool to use. Once pressed, the pressing indicator detaches from the fitting. This means any unpressed fittings are immediately visible.
Geberit FlowFit also marks a huge step in the manufacturer’s sustainability journey. Geberit’s new facilities with injection moulding technologies at the manufacturing stage reduce energy intensity and cut journeys throughout production processes to help minimise carbon footprint of the new product.
Furthermore, the manufacturer also introduces a bag to collect discarded pressing indicators into the design process for the first time. This will make it simpler for teams to return plastic parts and reduce waste on-site.
Peter Davis, Product and Marketing Director at Geberit, says: “Geberit FlowFit represents a major breakthrough in piping technology and we are excited to bring this innovative system to market.
“We focused on perfecting the installation process and combining this with our innovative press fit technology. The result is something we’re incredibly proud of and represents years of innovation and collaboration.”
The new piping system will be available from in April 2023.
