Smart plumbing manifold continues to reap rewards

Rehau’s Smart Plumbing Manifold has been shortlisted for an industry award – this time being named as a finalist in the Offsite Awards 2019 Product Innovation of the Year category.

The awards, which will take place in March, celebrate the best in precision building design and delivery. The winners will be outstanding examples of prefabrication and factory-based methods, products, systems and disciplines that increasingly strive to develop a sustainable, streamlined and cost-effective way to deliver a better built environment.

The new product is a valuable addition to Rehau’s portfolio with the construction industry moving towards off-site construction – as the Smart Plumbing Manifold can be installed in a factory and connected on-site swiftly and securely.

The Smart Plumbing Manifold is a modular, compact product offering a solution for control of water distribution, designed for use in utility cupboards where space is at a premium. Its benefits are said to include being time-saving for the installer – it only takes a matter of seconds to install – whilst also providing visual checking to ensure it is secure and tight.

Drew Clough, product manager for Building Solutions at Rehau, said: “It’s great news that the off-site industry is recognising the Smart Plumbing Manifold and how beneficial it is to installers. It is convenient and space-efficient and also substantially faster than other competitor products available today and also creates a smarter and more secure connection that is unlike anything else in the market.

“We look forward to hopefully winning gold at the award ceremony.” 

The Offsite Construction Awards will take place on March 5 at ExCeL London.
