TracPipe is used for conveying natural gas as an alternative to traditional gas pipe. It is manufactured from stainless steel to take the form of a semi-rigid pipe which allows the installer to bend by hand into the desired shape. Without the need for elbow or bend fittings, it is incredibly quick to install compared to copper and steel. With an average time saving of 75%, both installation and labour costs are reduced by a considerable amount.
The stainless steel construction of TracPipe ensures superior corrosion resistance compared to the traditional copper or steel gas piping. Correctly installed, TracPipe can be expected to last for the design period of the fabric of the building in which it is installed.
TracPipe can be used to convey gas to buildings, including residentials such as apartment blocks, commercial buildings, such as sports stadiums, and other buildings, including schools. Its wide scope of application increases its preference over traditional copper and steel gas pipe.
TracPipe adheres to all the relevant British gas pipe regulations and has all the appropriate approvals and standards to ensure that it is safe to use.
TracPipe has been tested by Advantica (originally BG Technology) and has a smoke and fire retardant yellow polyethylene cover displaying the word 'Gas'
