System Information

Noise reduction

Wavin AS reduces noise levels for soil and waste better than any other system.  We achieve this through wall thickness and density. At 5.3mm for 110mm pipes and with a density of 1.9kg/dm3, Wavin AS outperforms all other systems on the market.

Structure and airborne sound

Wavin AS achieves optimal reduction of airborne sound thanks to its high mass and wall thickness and of structure-borne sound thanks to the low elastic-modulus of its flexible PP material and the special couplers.

World leader

Wavin AS is the world’s first choice of low-noise soil and waste. Over 25 years, this polypropylene system has become the first choice of architects and building system designers.

Better than cast iron

Wavin AS beats cast iron since it has in most situations superior noise insulating properties. It is lighter and easier to install. Its secure push-fit rubber connections and corrosion-free components deliver a long lifetime of trouble-free service.

Acoustic calculations support

Wavin can help you accurately calculate the noise levels of any soil and waste installation. Developed by a specialist acoustic engineering company, our tool measures more than ten variables covering both airborne and system borne sounds. Supply us with your project parameters and we’ll provide you with an customised assessment and recommendations for your project.
