Underfloor Heating Pipe

Polypipe Barrier Pipe

Polypipe logo Polypipe's new barrier pipe packagingPolypipe use polybutylene to manufacture their barrier pipe beacuase it is the most flexible and efficient material for pipes and plumbing systems available. Polybutylene pipe is ideal for both domestic hot and cold water plumbing and heating systems, offering exceptional durability and long-term performance, which has seen it become the preferred material choice for today’s underfloor heating projects.

The most important characteristic of polybutylene pipe is its natural flexibility, allowing you to bend, curve and manipulate the pipe into even the tightest of spaces. Polybutylene is the most malleable plastic used in the manufacture of piping systems

Within the manufacturing cycle polybutylene doesn’t require chemical or radiation cross linking, which reduces the number of production processes, leading to faster and more efficient manufacturing. Another key advantage of polybutylene pipe is that it is extremely lightweight, particularly when compared with copper piping systems.

As barrier pipes contain an EVOH barrier layer to reduce oxygen ingress into the system through the pipe wall it is strongly our opinion that these pipes must be used on central heating systems. When tested to DIN 4726 and DIN 4727 barrier pipes give an oxygen permeability less than the value of 0·1g (m3d) specified in DIN 4726. British Gas now accept central heating systems containing standard polybutylene pipes onto their maintenance and service contracts but this may result in additional checks and maintenance being carried out.

Polypipe Metal Composite Pipe (MCP) Underfloor Heating Pipe
Polypipe Metal Composite Pipe (MCP) Underfloor Heating Pipe
On underfloor heating installations the metal composite pipe can be used where a metal barrier is preferred as the pipe “stays in shape” when bent.

It is for Underfloor Heating use only and is available in 16mm diameter in the following lengths: 80m, 100m, 120m, and 150m Coils.
Polypipe Ultra Flexible Underfloor Heating Pipe
Polypipe Ultra Flexible Underfloor Heating Pipe
Polypipe Ultraflexible Underfloor Heating Pipe represents a cost saving against standard Polyplumb pipe as this product is manufactured to EN15876 and therefore not for any other use (i.e offcuts cannot be used for hot and cold plumbing).

ALL Underfloor Specific Pipe such as 12mm Overlay Pipe and 18mm Solid Floor pipe will now be manufactures to this standard and the pipe will be a lighter shade of grey to normal Polyplumb.
