Geberit Silent-db20

The sound optimising drainage system

Triple protection against sound

Whether stack or floor connection – the highly sound-insulating drainage system Geberit Silent-db20 is the ideal solution for projects with high sound insulation requirements:

  • Premium residential buildings
  • Hotels
  • Hospitals
  • Retirement and nursing homes

Geberit Silent-db20 applications

  • Building drainage
  • Conventional roof drainage system (with retaining claw)

Geberit Silent-db20 is suitable for embedding in concrete.

Many good reasons for Geberit Silent-db20

Electrofusion welding, clamping connection or butt welding – the Geberit Silent-db20 pipe connection technologies

Connections for all circumstances

Butt welding, electrofusion welding and clamping connection

Whether with fast electrofusion welding, a clamping connection or with butt welding – the Geberit Silent-db20 pipes and fittings can be securely connected in three different ways.

Reliable adapters

Cost-optimised sound insulation

Special adapters are available to connect floor drainage systems made of Geberit DEPE to Geberit Silent-db20 stacks. A permanent connection is ensured thanks to stainless-steel retaining claws.

Plug connections for Geberit Silent-db20

Available for all pipe dimensions

With the expansion sockets with double flange and the double sleeve coupling, the thermally caused linear expansion of Geberit Silent-db20 pipes and fittings is balanced. This allows for large differences in the operating temperatures. The seals made of EPDM make a crucial contribution to the longevity of the drainage system.

Robustness of Geberit Silent-db20 pipes

Shockproof and flexible

Intact pipelines even in cold conditions

High level of impact resistance even in cold temperatures as low as -40 °C: this robustness provides, most notably, a guarantee during the construction stage that the pipelines will remain intact despite possible mechanical influences.

Geberit Silent-db20 swept-entry geometry for optimised hydraulic power

High discharge capacity

Hydraulically optimised for greater economic efficiency

The hydraulically optimised geometry of the Geberit Silent-db20 fittings ensures a high discharge capacity in the drainage system and allows both an economical dimensioning of the Geberit Silent-db20 pipes as well as a space-saving configuration of the pipe ducts.

Geberit Silent-db20 pipes are ideal for series production: installations can be prefabricated

Time-saving installation

Prefabrication possible

The drainage system Geberit Silent-db20 enables efficient operating on the building site thanks to a wide assortment of fittings and tools which have undergone practical trials. Furthermore, the Geberit Silent-db20 is also suitable for prefabrication in the plumber's own workshop.

Effective sound insulation

Sound reduction thanks to a high inherent weight

Increasing the inherent weight of the Geberit Silent-db20 pipes and fittings reduces their natural vibrations and sound is audibly insulated.

Geberit Silent-db20 combined branch fitting 88.5°, swept-entry

Innovative fittings

Professional solutions for tricky requirements

Geberit continuously develops its piping systems. The floor height can therefore be reduced via the Geberit Silent-db20 combined branch fitting 88.5°, swept-entry for toilet and shower elements.

Geberit Silent-db20 pipes are UV resistant

UV-resistant

Outside storage possible

The polyethylene used by Geberit contains special additives which effectively protect against UV rays. The weatherproof Geberit Silent-db20 pipes can therefore be stored outdoors for months.
