Our extensive range of products solutions include:

Potable Water

Wavin cares about the quality of drinking water: it’s the most precious of all natural resources. Our extensive range of pipe systems sets the highest standards for safety and hygiene.

  • Plumbing systems: Whether you are looking at a single apartment or a large building complex, you need to transport drinking water safely from the mains to the tap. Wavin has the right systems for every building type.

  • Mains supply: Water mains are the backbone for distribution of drinking water from provider to consumer. Wavin offers safe and reliable PE systems for different operating conditions and installation methods including trenchless technologies.

Rainwater

Climate change brings intense rainfall. This means increased threat of urban flooding. Manage excess rainwater effectively and you boost sustainability. You reduce the risk of damage to buildings and infrastructure and threats to public health too.

  • Surface drainage: Wavin offers rainwater management solutions for car parks and roads.

  • Roof drainage: Wavin offers rainwater management solutions for large commercial buildings, car parks and roads.

  • Transport & drainage: With Wavin pipes and connection components, you optimise rainwater drainage and transport to meet the toughest regulatory obligations.

  • Clean: Increasingly, regulation requires you to remove pollutants from collected rainwater before discharge. Pollutants include oil, sand and silt and heavy metals. Wavin can give you both the expert advice and the solutions you need to meet all compliance obligations.

  • Attenuate & infiltrate: Handle peaks in rainfall and you minimize the risk of flood damage. Our attenuation solutions give you maximum control over rainwater discharge. Infiltration slowly discharges into the surrounding soil.

Waste water

When you discharge waste water from domestic, civic and commercial buildings, you need robust, reliable and sustainable systems. Plastic pipe systems are proven solutions for soil and waste discharge.

  • Soil & waste: Wavin offers you a comprehensive choice of systems and products for managing waste water. Choose the system and the materials that best suit your specific project requirements.

  • Low-noise drainage: People want the plumbing in their buildings to be silent. In many cases, acceptable noise levels are now specified by local legislation. Wavin offers you a complete and well-established range of low noise systems.

  • Waterless traps: Wavin offers a comprehensive range of siphons, traps and connectors for sinks, showers, baths and WCs.

Foul water

Transporting waste water from domestic, commercial and industrial buildings to treatment plants demands reliable and durable systems.

  • Gravity Sewer: Gravity feed is the most common way to transport sewage. Wavin offers you a complete range of PVC and PP pipes, smooth and structured wall pipes and associated fittings with secure push-fit joints for gravity-fed sewage transport.

  • Inspection chambers: To ensure a long life and high performance, you must be able to inspect and maintain your sewage transport systems. Wavin offers a wide range of manholes and inspection chambers for safe and easy access.

Heating & cooling

Whether you are at work or at home, you expect a comfortable and easily controlled indoor climate. But that’s not all. You care about sustainability too, and of course, want to minimize your spending on energy.

  • Plumbing systems: Whether you are using radiators or surface heating and cooling, your system requires a reliable backbone. Wavin pipe systems give connection with confidence – whatever your heating and cooling choice.

  • Underfloor heating Hep2O: We have underfloor heating solutions for new-build or renovation projects, with any floor construction or type of heat source, backed up by our complete project design service.

Wavin HDPE Range Drives Efficiency In Prestigious City Centre Redevelopment Project

October 2018

Norwich, the county town of Norfolk, was until the Industrial Ages the second largest city in the UK, after London. While it can no longer claim second city status, it remains home to over 200,000 residents and has been declared one of the UK’s ‘Fast Growth Cities’.1

As one of the top 10 fastest-growing places in the UK, Norwich’s historic city centre is witnessing considerable development. A stand out project within this regeneration is Orbit’s £70m development, St Anne’s Quarter.

Featuring 437 high quality apartments and houses, built in five phases of construction, the project’s developers required a durable waste water management system that would be cost-effective to install while also ensuring reliable performance for years to come. To meet the brief, drainage sub-contractors Flood & French worked with Wavin to develop a solution employing its HDPE range.
Expert solutions for multi-occupancy projects

For the first phase of the project, involving 190 apartments, a drainage solution was required for a car parking area which would be able to withstand heavy vehicle traffic and unpredictable weather. With residents living in close-proximity over multiple floors, it was also crucial that the system could withstand frequent use without risk of failure. In addition, Flood & French needed to adhere to strict budgets and timescales, working quickly and efficiently to install the system.

While a cast iron system had originally been specified for the car park, Flood & French identified that Wavin’s HDPE range would offer a number of additional cost and performance benefits and enlisted the support of leading plumber’s merchant, Graham. A complete soil, waste and vent system of pipes and fittings, manufactured from high-density polyethylene, Wavin HDPE is a light-weight system which offers extraordinary chemical resistance in combination with a high flexibility level and great impact resistance.

Colin French, Director at Flood & French, explains: “One of the first challenges we faced was creating a drainage system that would be suitable for use in a busy car parking area. With the heavy traffic and vibrations this area would be impacted by, the project needed a strong, durable and flexible solution.

“We worked with Wavin to develop a technical submission proposing the use of its HDPE system. The range offers several benefits that made it particularly suitable for the car park area. For example, it’s ideal for assemblies subjected to vibration, as its elasticity gives the pipes a high impact strength. Temperature was also a key consideration in the partially exposed undercroft. In the cold winter months, we knew that HDPE would be able to withstand temperatures as low as -40°C and freezing of internal water.”

When it came to ensuring efficient and effective installation, the Wavin HDPE range also met the brief more effectively than cast iron. Colin French continues: “From an installation point of view, the project involved time and space limitations which meant we required a robust system that could be installed quickly. Wavin HDPE offered a range of benefits over the alternatives – from ease of transporting around site to flexibility in how we jointed the system.”

A key advantage of Wavin HDPE is that it can be welded (both by butt welding and with electrofusion joints), thereby providing a perfectly sealed system. The connection seals are quick-fit coupling and the expansion joint seals remain resistant to waste water. As the seals are produced from an elastomer, it guarantees sealing and durability even in extreme conditions. The light-weight nature of the system also means it can be more easily transported to and handled around site than cast iron alternatives.

The technical and design support offered by Wavin also ensured the effectiveness of the overall project. Wavin worked with the contractor to develop AutoCAD designs and a full Bill of Materials for all eight blocks of the project, to enable highly accurate product ordering and the minimisation of wastage.

Colin French continues: “The technical design support from Wavin has meant we’ve been able to be ultra-efficient with time, budget and space, while also providing a solution that will be robust for many years. As work progresses on the project, we’re continuing to work very closely with Wavin, which is helping us to deliver on time and within budget.”

When working on developments that are restricted with regards to time, cost and sometimes space, the margins for any issues, delays or misunderstandings become very tight, but the end-user is always front of mind. Our HDPE range will providing long-lasting results that ensure residents benefit from durable and effective waste water solutions for years to come.
