Rehau heads to Manchester with Specifi

Rehau is heading to Manchester in July to showcase two new products at its third Specifi event. It is the first time Rehau has exhibited at the UK’s only built environment roadshow and is attending five events nationwide in total.

The Specifi events are attended by world class industry speakers, specifiers, installers and technical experts who spend time discussing projects, products developments and innovations with several built environment brands.

Rehau will be exhibiting at the Manchester Specifi event on July 4 at Renaissance Manchester City Centre Hotel from 4.30pm until 10pm. At the event, the team will be showcasing the Rautitan plumbing system, a 10-bar pipework solution designed for drinking water and heating systems, which launched at the end of 2017 in the UK.

The flexible PE-Xa Rautitan pipework system delivers on durability, corrosion-resistance and ease of installation. It is fully WRAS certified as hygienic for drinking water and its smooth surface prevents deposits forming while cavity-free impermeable joints eliminate the risk of microbial contamination.

Rautitan is also suitable for radiator connections and can be used for installations through the floor, skirting board or wall.

Also on stand will be Rehau’s two pre-insulated pipe ranges – Rauvitherm and Rauthermex. Rauvitherm is a PE-Xa pipe suitable for use in district heating, biomass, biogas and heat pump applications. According to Rehau, it is currently the only PE-Xa district heating pipe manufactured in the UK.

Rauthermex is suited to a variety of low carbon heat installations and features high performance PU foam, which is said to make it ideal for large district heating installations over long distances where minimising heat losses is critical.

Rehau will also be featuring its new sound attenuated drainage solution – Raupiano which will be launched to the market later this year. The Raupiano product offers a patented structure, sound damping, is heat and impact-resistant, chemical-resistant and pressure-resistant to 2-bar.

Drew Clough, product manager at Rehau, said: “So far the roadshow events have been excellent, and we have been very happy with the level of interaction and interest generated by our visitors. At the Specifi events Rehau is discussing the Rautitan plumbing solution that we launched last year in the UK, and also our brand new Raupiano product.

“It has been great so far and we are really looking forward to upcoming events over the next few weeks. Our next stops are Newcastle and London so if have been unable to visit us so far, we hope to see you at these locations.”

Specifi is a free event in partnership with CIBSE YEN. Entrance is free to the event, which takes place from 4.30pm until 10.30pm. There are only 100 seats available, to book your seat visit or to find out more information on Rehau go to
