Wavin backs International Campaign on Plastic Piping

Wavin, the UK’s leading manufacturer of plastic piping solutions, is supporting a multinational awareness campaign launched by TEPPFA, the European Plastics Pipes and Fittings Association.

The Campaign, called Discover: Plastics has had the backing of four National Associations, and is focussed on showcasing the benefits of using plastic for below ground drainage systems. As a member of TEPPFA, Wavin is actively supporting the campaign. 

Discover: Plastics celebrates the flexibility, longevity and strength of plastic pipes – as well as their ease and speed of installation – drawing on more than 20 years of independent research.

Speaking about the campaign, Martin Lambley is hoping that this campaign will encourage an increased use in plastics in below ground drainage systems across the country.

We want to champion the work that TEPPFA is doing to highlight the benefits of using plastic for drainage solutions. As the UK’s leading manufacturer of plastic piping solutions we are keen to communicate how our systems can be used in a wide range of applications.

Following an intensive piece of market research which revealed the most important considerations that specifiers take into account, TEPPFA has collated the results of many years of investigation and study to create Discover: Plastics.  

For decades, we have invested substantially in excavating existing systems to assess their longevity; undertaking controlled lab research to quantify the benefits of flexibility; and subjected plastic pipes to continual hours of strength testing.
