Range of applications
From drinking water and heating, to compressed air and process water systems, Geberit Mepla offers a flexible, single solution for a wide range of applications. The system combines the strength and stability of metal piping systems with the flexibility and corrosion resistance of plastic - all with the added convenience of press-fit.
Bendable yet durable, multi-layer piping systems like Geberit Mepla consist of three layers: a plastic inner pipe, an aluminium middle layer and a protective polyethylene outer layer, allowing for simple, safe and flexible processing, while also complying to a high hygiene standard.
Multi-layer piping can be used for all potable water and heating supplies on domestic and light commercial projects and industrial applications such as compressed air and cooling water systems. Here are four compelling reasons to consider Geberit Mepla on your next project.
• Stable - The aluminium layer ensures a high level of stability and extraordinary mechanical strength without compromising on its lightweight attributes.
• Flexible - Thanks to its aluminium layer, high-quality multi-layer piping can be manipulated to on-site conditions. With Geberit Mepla, for example, 16mm and 20mm pipes can be bent effortlessly by hand, with a bending machine suitable for larger diameters up to 50mm.
• Simple installation -Pressing technology allows installations to be carried out reliably and quickly without flames, unlike welding and soldering.
• Hygienic - Geberit Mepla is suitable for drinking water systems and does not need additional measures to prevent internal corrosion. Geberit Mepla is WRAS approved and has a surface roughness of only 0.7µm, making it difficult for limescale and biofilm to adhere to the smooth surface.
Multi-layer piping is versatile and economical – which makes it the perfect choice for a wide range of applications outside of plumbing and potable water. Multi-layer piping offers high margin opportunities when working across a range of sectors including automotive, chemical, pharmaceutical and food processing for compressed air, vacuum systems, cooling equipment and process water systems.
