GPS PE Pipe Systems is extending its market-leading barrier pipe solution, Protecta-Line, with the addition of larger diameter sizes to the range, to offer customers further flexibility.

Previously available in sizes up to 355mm, the Protecta-Line range has been expanded to provide sizes up to 630mm, making GPS the first UK manufacturer to offer such a large diameter barrier pipe system.

The new development is in response to customer feedback, which revealed an increasing requirement for large volumes of water to be transported through brownfield sites as demand for building increases, particularly in urban areas.

The introduction of the range up to 630mm provides designers, contractors and end clients with more flexibility when selecting pipeline products for brownfield sites and ensures GPS continues to offer effective solutions to meet the needs of every installation.

Commenting on the product expansion, Sophia Zhang, GPS PE Pipe Systems’ product manager said: “We regularly undertake customer research to gain insights, which help drive our product innovation strategy and enhance our product portfolios to ensure we continue to deliver value to our customers.

“Our Protecta-Line system is the preferred choice for many UK water companies so it is important we continue to develop the product range to meet the changing needs of the industry. By increasing the size range of the system we can now provide a complete pipe and fittings solution for large volume projects.”

The number one choice for barrier pipe, Protecta-Line is an award winning, fully integrated barrier pipe and fittings system. Its tough multi-layer construction incorporates an impermeable aluminum barrier layer wrapped onto a central core of PE80 or Excel (PE100) pipe. Its innovative design ensures that any contaminants remaining in brownfield sites and former industrial land cannot permeate into the water supply.
