There has been much celebration at REHAU as its new universal 10 bar pipework solution, RAUTITAN, has been shortlisted in the 2018 HVR Awards Ancillary Product of the Year category.

The HVR Awards reward companies that have proved to be outstanding in their field, that have excellent technology or have shown exceptional customer service and innovation.

REHAU entered its RAUTITAN product into the Ancillary Product of the Year category, which recognises excellence in ancillary products and explores their uses, applications and technological features, as well as simplicity and cost.

RAUTITAN launched in September 2017 and is a universal 10 bar polymer pipework solution. It can be used for both drinking water and heating systems and is available in Flex and Stabil (MLC pipe). The inside of the pipe is very smooth, along with the independently certified cavity free joint, means there is no space for water to stagnate in, which reduces the risk of bacteria breeding in the pipe.

As well as being dual use RAUTITAN is incredibly durable. It can resist pressure loads of up to 10 bar, allowing it to be installed in high-rise, multi-occupancy buildings. It is also the most flexible of all MLC polymer pipes on the market, but is still highly stable, which means there is a reduced risk of the pipe kinking. Not only this, but REHAU’s compression sleeve jointing technology means the pipe is leak proof and is the only pipework system that can offer this level of reassurance.

The construction industry is already adopting RAUTITAN as its go to pipework system, especially for multi-occupancy apartment buildings. Having one pipe that does everything keeps construction cost effective and efficient. RAUTITAN also has a lifetime expectancy of more than 50 years so maintenance costs are kept low too.

Drew Clough, Product Manager at REHAU, said: “We’re delighted this product is receiving the recognition it deserves. Since its launch it has been well adopted on a number of projects and is proving to be easy to install – and most importantly we’re already hearing positive testimonials from contractors and installers on site.”

The winners will be announced at the HVR Awards on Thursday 25th October at The Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London.
