Polymer pipework specialist REHAU will showcase its market-leading polymer district heating solutions at Futurebuild 2022 from 1 to 3 March.

Displaying from stand A18 in the District Energy Pavilion at ExCeL London, REHAU will be demonstrating how it can support designers, contractors and clients in developing low carbon projects. Visitors with be given the opportunity to experience product solutions for today’s challenges, including the drive to net zero and the need for easy-to-install flexible pipework to meet ambitious, government-mandated decarbonisation targets.

“It’s definitely an eventful time for the building services sector, with publications such as the Heat and Buildings Strategy already having a major impact,” says Steve Richmond, Head of Marketing and Technical at REHAU Building Solutions. “The sector is under pressure to quickly and effectively install low-carbon district heating systems, so we are excited to attend Futurebuild and demonstrate how our portfolio can help meet these challenges.

“Our range of pipework systems alongside our first-class sales and technical support make us the perfect partner for large scale projects. While we have all had to adapt our working habits over the past two years, we cannot wait to see event attendees face-to-face again. As the market leader for polymer district heating, it is only right that we should be able to show our support for such a key industry in-person.”

Examples of the solutions available on REHAU’s stand will be the RAUTHERMEX pipe range for medium-to-large district heating installations and RAUVITHERM pipework for small-to-medium scale systems, which is the only PE-Xa district heating pipe made in the UK. Complementing these products on REHAU’s stand will also be the new modular fitting system for district heating projects. Alongside this, REHAU will also be demonstrating its leading RAUTITAN plumbing and heating (MLCP) system at Futurebuild, which is well-suited for providing communal heating for multi-occupancy properties, such as student accommodation, private or social housing.

“The need to decarbonise the nation’s building stock has been a long-standing challenge that has become increasingly pressing in recent years,” concludes Steve.  “Being able to do so will require a wide array of district heating and communal heating solutions suitable for different circumstances, from built-up urban areas to low-density housing in the suburbs and countryside.

“It is for this reason that we will also be hosting a speaker presentation at Futurebuild on the increasing use of polymer pipes in low-carbon heat networks for low-density housing. New build housing is a key area for lowering emissions nationwide, so we would encourage all visitors to attend and see the role polymer pipework can play in the ongoing transition to more sustainable residential properties.”
