Pipes for heating system
The polybutene pipe, which is manufactured in the Viega plastic pipe centre of excellence in Niederwinkling, is characterised by a high flexibility, even at low temperatures. Depending on the dimension and use, it is used on tacker, studded and gypsum fibreboard panels for underfloor heating. There are also several wet and dry systems available in the Fonterra range for assembly on the wall or ceiling.
This diversity also applies to the newly introduced PB pipe dimension. Already available in the nominal widths of 12 x 1.3 and 15 x 1.5 mm, the dimensions of 17 x 2.0 mm, 20 x 2.3 mm and 25 x 2.3 mm can now also be supplied. The pipes from 12 to 20 mm can be combined with the Fonterra Base or Tacker studded or tacker panels. The dimensions 20 x 2.0 mm and 25 x 2.3 mm are primarily designed for use in industrial properties, to activate components or for industrial panel heating. The Fonterra pipes are installed directly onto reinforced mesh or clip rails for such projects.
