The advantages of synthetic and metallic systems
The Geberit Mepla multilayer pipe system combines the advantages of synthetic and metallic materials. This enables fast work progress on the building site in compliance with applicable standards and regulations. Mepla can be used flexibly and quickly and is permanently leakproof.
Corrosion-resistant, durable and light
Geberit Mepla is corrosion-resistant and light, but more inherently stable and durable than plastic pipes. The system has been tested to EN ISO 21003 and therefore complies with all common standards. It is suitable for use with all drinking water qualities without requiring a previous drinking water analysis and can be used for drinking water and heating installations.
Flexible pipes and fast, reliable connection technology make Geberit Mepla economically attractive. In comparison with other installation techniques it can achieve cost savings of up to 20 percent, as less pipe material and work as well as fewer fittings are necessary. Geberit MeplaTherm supplements the product range with pipes and fittings for heating installations. Pressfittings made of PVDF, brass and gunmetal are available.
Geberit Mepla fittings are equipped with three safety precautions: The pipe insertion depth is always fully visible and indicates the correct position of the pipe on the fitting at all times. The bead on the fitting helps with regard to where to position the tool and ensures exact pressing. Finally, non-pressed connections can be clearly identified during the leak test. In addition to the fittings made of PVDF, a wide assortment of fittings made of gunmetal or brass is available for threaded connections.
Geberit Mepla multilayer pipes are made up of three layers. The outer plastic layer made of high-density polyethylene (PE-HD) protects against corrosion and mechanical damage. The central aluminium layer makes the pipe stable, bendable and forms a barrier against diffusion. The inner layer of crosslinked polyethylene (PE-Xb) is corrosion-resistant and food-safe and can be used for all drinking water qualities without additional drinking water analysis.
