Wavin UK is a member of the Wavin Group - the world leader in plastic pipe systems for residential, non-residential and civil engineering projects. Systems offered, include market leading Osma above and below ground drainage and Hep2O hot and cold plumbing and underfloor heating, as well as a wide range of Wavin drainage and stormwater management solutions for all application areas.

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’S CAREFULLY CONSIDERED SOLUTION FOR CEDAR CARE HOMES

WAVIN’S CAREFULLY CONSIDERED SOLUTION FOR CEDAR CARE HOMES

Cedar Care Homes, a national provider of elderly care and accommodation, has recently started the construction of a new 83 bed care home in Bristol. This new build development needed a reliable, cost effective pipe system that met the requirements of both the project and its future residents. Plumbing installation experts, Redline, who were contracted to carry out the installation turned to leading plastic pipe manufacturer, Wavin, for the perfect solution.
The UK’s ageing population means that the demand for assisted elderly care continues to grow. This increased demand means that care homes need to be constructed quickly and efficiently, which in turn, requires quick heating and plumbing installations. Following consultations with product experts at Wavin, Redline decided that the Tigris K1 press-fit system fitted their plumbing and heating needs.

A carefully considered solution

A common issue with projects of this size is theft of materials, specifically pipework made of copper. As Tigris K1, like all of Wavin’s products, is made of plastic it provided the ideal solution for Redline. Using plastic products doesn’t mean any compromise on performance either. Tigris K1 has an aluminium layer to reduce thermal expansion, making it comparable to its traditional counterparts.
Oli Humphries, plumbing installer at Redline, said: “The fact that Tigris K1 is made out of plastic but can still perform to the same standards as copper systems made it perfect for us. It allowed us to concentrate fully on the project without having to bring in preventative measures to stop any theft.”

On-site storage was also an issue for Redline, so the chosen product needed to be compact. The cross-linked PEXc inner layer of Tigris K1 offers the pipe flexibility allowing more products to be stored at one time.

At the click of a… press-fit system
The award-winning Tigris K1 range is also easy to install making it ideally suited to large-scale, commercial outfits such as care homes. The multilayer composite pipe system is joined together via a mechanical clamp without the need for welding. Therefore, Tigris K1 provides a secure connection that requires minimal force, consequently reducing installation time. The innovative product is further able to speed up the delivery process thanks to its leakage indicator; if the installer forgets to press the clamps, the connectors are designed to leak during pressure testing to indicate faulty joints.

Wayne Boswell, technical sales manager at Wavin, said: “Having spoken with Redline and understanding the need for a quick and durable installation on this large-scale project, it was clear that Tigris K1 was the ideal choice. With no need for welding on-site as is the case with traditional copper pipework, or any consequential health and safety documentation, the team could start their work without delay.
“Additionally, with such a long lifespan, our customers can be assured that the system’s performance will continue to deliver for years to come, protecting the warmth and comfort of the care home’s future residents.”

Upon finishing the installation, Oli Humphries said: “Once the benefits of Tigris K1 were explained to us through Wayne’s on-site demonstration, we were eager to try the product ourselves, and it didn’t disappoint. The installation was seamless, allowing us to finish the job ahead of schedule, much to the pleasure of Cedar Care Homes.”
The care home is set to be completed by the end of September when its new residents will be able to enjoy the new facility and the benefits of the Tigris K1 system.

FACTORY NO.1 GETS NO.1 SERVICE FROM WAVIN

FACTORY NO.1 GETS NO.1 SERVICE FROM WAVIN

Residential projects and commercial projects can have different needs when it comes to plumbing and drainage, and the same applies to whether projects are new-build or refurbishment. While blocks of apartments need quiet systems, commercial spaces need stronger pipes, likewise, refurbishments need flexible solutions to fit around existing structures, new-builds need quicker installations to run to complex timelines.

When specialist installer Gas World Ltd. had all of these aspects rolled into one development in Bristol, the team wanted high-quality, reliable products and a one-stop-shop for all solutions. Leading plastic pipe manufacturer, Wavin, was called in to assist.

Factory No. 1 in Bedminster is a multi-million-pound project on the site of the old Wills Tobacco factory. The vast space is being developed by City & Country into 270 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, combining conversions of the old building with modern new-build areas.

Gas World, having impressed City & Country on previous projects, was contracted to deliver the plumbing and drainage portfolio for the development. The installer had previously worked with Wavin products, and decided to use the manufacturer’s portfolio of solutions to service the whole site.

Phil Moore, director and operations manager at Gas World Ltd., said: “We’ve used Wavin products for years and we continue to use them because of the premium quality. The technical team at Wavin are always happy to help us, too, they provided the take offs – the design and drawings – that we needed to get work started quickly, and it helped to have that included in the package when we pitched to the client. It makes life easier to work with a brand a product you know and trust.”

Working alongside Wavin, Gas World opted to use Osma products throughout the apartments for the foul water drainage scheme, with Wavin’s Hep2O push-fit system being used for the plumbing needs of the residential space.

The challenge Gas World faced with the project was finding a drainage solution appropriate to for the buildings as drainage noise would need to be kept to a minimum to avoid disruption to any residents above. Wavin’s Acoustic Soil low-noise drainage system was chosen as it’s wall thickness and density provides superior noise insulation. With the plastic solution being lighter and easier to install than traditional cast iron alternatives, it was the clear choice for the development in Bristol.

Wayne Boswell, technical sales manager for above ground at Wavin, said: “There are many complexities to address in projects that comprise of new build and refurbishment areas, as well as both residential or commercial spaces, but Wavin’s portfolio can do the job for all.

“It was great to work with Gas World on this project to find the best solutions for the full development, and we’ll be continuing to work closely with them to ensure the team is supported with design and technical advice whenever it’s needed.”

Works began on Factory No.1 in late 2018 with completion expected in 2021.
