Geberit Mepla applications
- Potable water
- Compressed air
Reasons to choose Geberit Mepla
The Geberit Mepla multilayer pipe made of PE-RT and aluminium combines the benefits of plastic with those of metallic piping systems. The thick aluminium layer therefore ensures a high level of stability and exceptional mechanical strength. The polyethylene layers, on the other hand, are corrosion-resistant and protect the pipe from deformation.
|Interior surface of the Geberit Mepla system pipe
Geberit uses materials that meet the highest hygienic requirements for the manufacture of the Geberit Mepla multilayer pipes. The smooth interior surface of the pipes ensures good flow rates and minimises incrustations.
|Weld seam quality
The homogeneous longitudinally welded aluminium layer in Geberit Mepla system pipes with its smoothly formed weld seam guarantees the highest possible degree of safety and quality. It is not possible to overlap the aluminium layer. The pipe has the same bending properties in all directions.
|Above-standard tensile strenght
The outstanding tensile strength of the pressing operation of Geberit Mepla system pipes and fittings ensures reliable and permanent connections. Their quality is constantly checked and exceeds the values demanded in the standards many times over. This guarantees a high standard of reliability, even in piping systems subjected to high loads.
|Retaining force of the Geberit Mepla fittings
Special plastic cams on the plastic Geberit Mepla fittings and a retaining ring on the metal fittings achieve a high level of retaining force in the system pipe and prevent the fitting slipping out of the pipe during assembly. One person can therefore easily install, align and press the piping system.
|Pipe insertion depth
The pipe insertion depth is easily visible. During installation, this provides the certainty that the pipe is correctly placed onto the fitting and can be pressed.
|Pressing jaw guide
The defined pressing jaw guide on the Geberit Mepla fitting ensures that the pressing jaw is positioned in exactly the right position. It also prevents any risk of the joint slipping or being pressed in the wrong place. This prevents failed pressing sequences and ensures a reliable and durable connection.
Unpressed Geberit Mepla fittings are immediately identifiable when subjected to leak tests with water. Water flows out of the unpressed connections, even at low water test pressure.
|Fewer fastening points
The robust aluminium layer prevents the pipes expanding in response to temperature fluctuations. The installation therefore requires fewer fastening points than with conventional plastic pipes.
The Geberit Mepla system pipes in dimensions DN 16 and DN 20 can be easily bent by hand. The multilayer pipes are lightweight and can be bent easily, which makes them easy to lay. Bending tools can be used for larger dimensions of up to DN 50.
