We are pleased to report that two of our plastic pipework systems have been supplied to a development of 12 new-build residential apartments for the Borough of Hillingdon in Yeading, Middlesex.
After experiencing the costly effects of copper thefts from site, engineers Anders Heating, together with main contractors Hill Partnerships, were looking for a cost-effective and efficient alternative to these traditional metal systems. As a result, Durapipe’s SuperFLO and PVC-C systems were specified in sizes up to 63mm for the Adelaide House project.
PVC-C was selected to supply the water to the heating and hot water services throughout the one and two-bedroom apartments while ABS SuperFLO was chosen for the boosted cold water applications and to distribute cold water to the flats.
Managing director of Anders Heating, Tim Anders, said: “After falling victim to a bout of copper thefts, it was vital we found an alternative that minimised this risk and Durapipe offered us a solution.
“Both systems were simple to use, speeding up the installation process, and were cost-effective without compromising on quality. We are so impressed with Durapipe’s products that we have already specified it on several other sites.”
PVC-C offered a high performance pipework system that is a reliable, alternative solution to copper for hot and cold water applications. Its excellent corrosion resistant properties means that it is ideal for applications such as heating, and provides contractors with a safe alternative to copper that will not risk site theft and unnecessary replacement costs.
With exceptional installation properties, the lightweight nature of plastic piping makes it easy to handle on site and, combined with the easy solvent welding jointing technique, which eliminates the need for any hot works, offers significant time and cost savings during the installation stage.
