Durapipe ABS SuperFlo Metric
Durapipe SuperFLO - plastic piping system for air conditioning, chilled or boosted cold water applications and other environmental control systems.
Durapipe SuperFLO is lightweight and the pipes remain extremely tough and durable even at water temperatures as low as -40ºC.
The complete pipework system which is manufactured from an ABS material incorporates pipes, fittings and valves. It offers a 50-year service life as well as numerous benefits that alternative pipework materials cannot provide. These include reduced installation costs via a fast solvent-weld jointing procedure, low maintenance costs due to its limescale and corrosion resistance properties as well as being extremely lightweight making the product much easier to handle on-site.
Durapipe SuperFLO is available in sizes ranging from 16mm – 315mm.
