Latest product launches


Posted: Monday 7th March 2011

Marley Plumbing and Drainage has extended its soil and waste product range with the introduction of Marley Akatherm HDPE Drainage – amodern high density polyethylene system, offering specifiers and contractors even more choice from one supplier.

Marley Akatherm HDPE is a drainage system that is manufactured to meet high standards of durability and reliability, offering an alternative solution to cast iron. It is particularly suited for commercial applications or where a product with high impact or abrasion resistance is required, such as hospitals, hotels, schools, as well as residential buildings. HDPE will also cope with temperature variations of -40°C to 100°C making it ideal for external as well as internal installations.

The combination of the excellent material properties of HDPE with homogenous welded joints provides greater installation flexibility with a wide range of jointing options. The various connection methods include electrofusion, butt welding and push fit expansion sockets depending upon the particular project requirements. This ensures a quick, clean, reliable and cost effective installation compared to cast iron in particular. Furthermore, the lightweight construction of the HDPE system results in additional cost savings in transport and handling.

This new product launch is supported by the renowned Marley Technical Design service team who have an exemplary track record in finding solutions to project requirements. Marley has also invested in the latest design software to provide added value to specifiers and designers.

In addition, Marley is offering a specialist fabrication service able to provide pre-fabricated stacks, made in a quality controlled environment, eliminating installation time on site, particularly on larger projects. This service also lends itself to offsite manufacture, a construction method growing in popularity.

“This latest product offering is part of our new innovation focus at Marley. Marley Akatherm HDPE has a proven track record across Europe, giving specifiers the assurance of performance. Its inherent properties help to increase the overall product lifecycle expectancy and reduce maintenance and replacement costs across the system,” comments Fiona Bashford, Marketing Manager at Marley Plumbing and Drainage.

The range covers an extensive package of pipes and fittings in the diameters 40 mm- 315 mm, which includes pipe, bends, electrofusion couplers, branches, branch balls and access pipes. All the products in the range are approved to BS EN 1519: 2000.
