Project overview

Manufacturing facilities often require a complex system of pipework suitable for the supply of various services including hot and cold water, compressed air and other specific industrial lines. Using different materials which may need a variety of fitting methods can add significant time to the job, which is why Geberit’s Mapress press fit pipes and fittings proved to be the perfect solution for a range of industrial uses at a new factory unit in Whittlesford, Cambridgeshire.

As specialists in the manufacture of contact lenses and cataract lenses, Peterborough and Cambridge Business Development needed a piping product that would be suitable for chilled water, low temperature heating water, compressed air, nitrogen lines, vacuum lines, mains cold water and pressure relief lines; a complex system of pipework required for various uses in its new facility.

It tasked local contractor Graham Day of GD Pipeworks with specifying the correct solution, who turned to Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel 316 pipe and fittings, with press fitting for quicker, easier and more reliable connections.
