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.
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.
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.
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 makes waves with offshore wind farm energy supply
Wavin makes waves with offshore wind farm energy supply
Wavin UK, has bolstered its commitment to achieving more sustainable operations by awarding its energy contract to Ørsted, the global leader in offshore wind.
Wavin has appointed renewable energy specialists Ørsted, to supply natural gas and 100% renewable electricity energy from April 2019 across four UK sites.
The renewable electricity will come from Ørsted’s 11 operational UK wind farms and is certified by REGOs (Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin) – official validation that each kWh of energy is provided by a renewable source.
The new energy supply will see Wavin reduce its CO2 emissions by 13.7 tonnes a year – the same weight as 1000 Big Ben bells.
For Wavin, sustainability has become a driver for value creation. Ultimately, we want to deliver products that meet our own sustainability demands and those of our customer, the government and society.
Philip Swancott , Category Manager for Services at Wavin
Phillip Swancott commented, “Ørsted was a clear choice to be our supplier following a robust procurement process. They’re committed to helping us to towards a sustainable future, assisting in reducing our overall consumption through efficiency, energy management and optimising onsite generation assets.”
The new energy supply will cover Wavin’s four sites at Hazelhead, Chippenham, Forest Works and Doncaster for three years.
Ashley Phillips, Managing Director at Ørsted Sales (UK) Ltd said: “It’s exciting that Wavin, a large and trusted UK supplier, is placing such strong emphasis on sustainability. At Ørsted, we want to drive the transition to low-carbon energy systems in the UK, and support businesses like Wavin that share this ambition of creating a greener energy future.”
Operation Clean Sweep: Wavin joins the drive to cut ocean plastic
Wavin has committed to work towards achieving the targets set by Operation Clean Sweep in partnership with the British Plastics Federation.
Operation Clean Sweep is a campaign that aims to help every plastic resin handling operation to work towards zero pellet, flake and powder loss which both helps to protect the environment and saves valuable resources. The issue of plastics in the environment and drive to cut ocean plastic has increased in prominence following the BBC’s Blue planet series and the championing of the issue by broadcaster and naturalist sir David Attenborough. Waste plastic can make its way into local waterways and ultimately into estuaries and the ocean. Plastics can easily be mistaken for food and eaten by birds and marine animals harming them and impacting the whole food chain.
The program has been educating the industry for 12 years on the impact of pellet loss with a clear message that resin pellets should be contained, reclaimed or disposed of properly.
Sustainability is at the core of Wavin and Mexichem's vision and company mission. We are really pleased to participate in this programme to further reduce and reuse our plastic waste. It aligns particularly well with our strategy to contribute to a circular economy and cleaner environment by leading the way with innovative plastic solutions for the building industry.
