Low Installed Life Costs:

The ease of handling and speed of jointing of PLX will generally result in the total installed cost being lower than it is for threaded or welded metal systems. Pipework installation can be completed in significantly less time than for metal systems. As the installation of PLX is not classed as ‘hot works’ it can be safely undertaken in most environments
