Wastewater discharge piping systems should function as though they don’t exist. Which is why the choice of material is vital to ensure your pipes are quiet and odor-free. If you are renovating or installing new soil and waste pipes for blocks of flats, hotels, hospitals, care homes or even libraries, you will want to consider the type of piping materials you choose to have installed.
Buildings that benefit from 'quiet' systems
Silent wastewater discharge pipes such Pipelife Master 3 Plus and STILLA are the perfect solution for meeting the demands of modern housing or hotels and blocks of flats. To ensure water flows with the least amount of noise, pipes must have thicker walls, higher weight and a stronger stiffness class.
With robust and reliable systems in place, your buildings not only keep their value for a longer period of time, they also provide a more comfortable and peaceful atmosphere for people to reside or stay in.
Plastic pipes are known for their durability and corrosion resistance. Therefore when correctly installed, they last for decades, and certainly match the lifespan of buildings.
Their smooth interior minimize incrustations and build-up so that they also require minimal maintenance. Meaning once installed, you can pretty much forget about them.
Designed for a fast assembly and durable installation
Designed to guarantee safety and usability, our sound insulated pipes are all produced with insertion depth and assembly aid markings, providing the necessary assistance for a quick and efficient setup.
Thanks to the rigid and impact-resistant outer layer, our pipes can be installed in sub-zero temperatures with minimal risk of any damage, while providing essential protection for a long service life.
Protect your building and ensure a proper installation
Piping systems are only as good as they are installed. Therefore when retrofitting or outfitting your home or building, you want to make sure that your professional plumber or plumbing company firstly watches out for any potential leaks with a properly tightened system. Pipelife has developed a special jointing system that facilitates this task.
Secondly, they need to install adequate penetration sleeves on any pipes leading in and out of the building. This offers proper protection to guarantee your walls and cellar stay dry, and you don’t end up with expensive repair costs.
Wondering how sustainable plastic pipes are?
Plastic has a bad reputation these days. However, the use of plastic for plumbing installations in and around buildings can actually be very beneficial not just for the user, but also for the environment.
Lower carbon footprint throughout life cycle
Compared to metal pipes, plastic pipes are a preferred alternative when considering the products’ energy consumption and carbon footprint, from manufacturing to installation and beyond. When thinking about environmental implications, consideration needs to go further than CO2 emissions from production. We need to include all phases of the lifecycle.
Plastic piping systems are a sustainable and environmentally responsible choice, especially when considering their extremely long service life. With superior resistance to corrosion and abrasion, excellent joint performance and tightness, many plastic pipes have an estimated service life of at least 100 years.
Our plastic pipes are 100% recyclable, and some can even be recycled several times, re-entering the manufacturing process as quality assured recycled plastic. Every year, we increase the ratio of recycled plastics within our production lines, while ensuring the high product quality our clients are used to receiving from us.
As an active member of The European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA) we want to raise awareness of the value that plastic pipe systems offer for a sustainable future. In order to provide more transparency around the environmental impact of plastic pipe systems on our environment, we have issued an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) tool for your iPad, which you can find on the Apple app store or download directly from our webpage.
