Triple protection against sound
Geberit Silent-db20 fulfils existing sound insulation requirements without difficulty, because the sound insulation comes already installed. Polyethylene, the mineral reinforced plastic, is used for its manufacture, which lends the pipes and fittings an increased weight, thus effectively reducing both their natural vibration and the sound it generates. Sound insulation ribs in the impact zones further reduce noise development. In addition, system pipe brackets for wall fastening decouple the drainage system acoustically from both walls and ceilings, thus preventing a transmission of solid-borne sound.
Solutions for practically every type of building
Branch fittings in the typical stack dimensions are hydraulically optimised. This allows for greater loads and even smaller stack dimensions in some cases. Pipes and fittings are available in dimensions from 56mm to 160mm, i.e. for practically all building types, from domestic to high-rise buildings.
Economical and safe connection methods
Different connection methods are possible, depending on the application. Clamping connectors with screw connection can be loosened and corrected at any time. Electrofusion couplers achieve a comprehensive tensile strength simply and safely, e.g. for additional safety when laid in concrete or with cramped installation conditions. Butt welding is considered a traditional and safe connection method on site or during prefabrication. Cutting and mounting is carried out without hazardous flexing. Scrap pieces left over from processing can be reused as fitting pieces or disposed of without difficulty.
For installations which do not permit conventional ventilation due to space considerations, Geberit also offers the air admittance valves for dimensions of up to 110mm.
