Declan Conlon and Michael ODonohoe

At the recent Hardware Association Ireland Innovation Awards, we were delighted to hear our new product innovation to the Wavin Sewer range, RootSeal Technology, had been highly commended. RootSeal Technology was entered into the Build category. 


RootSeal Technology


This new product innovation to the Wavin Sewer range is designed to limit the threat of tree root ingress on drainage systems.

Fittings will start to be installed with a distinctive green seal which contains a naturally occurring mineral inhibitor. Using this inhibitor, the seal deters root growth away from pipe fittings to protect the drainage system.

Biodiversity was a key consideration of this innovation - the growth of trees and surrounding wildlife will not be impacted upon with the use of RootSeal Technology.

Aside from extra system protection and assured environmental safety, the key benefit of RootSeal is that it is a product advancement with no extra cost meaning that the price of Wavin Sewer remains the same. A product with improved performance for the same price. This innovation will be a gradual roll out.
