CPVC or steel for fire sprinkler systems?

With so much talk surrounding adequate fire protection in the UK, one of the biggest challenges for many installers and specifiers will be finding, and implementing, the right system.

Steel piping for fire protection systems has become a traditional fixture in both new builds and retrofit projects throughout the UK and Europe. But with CPVC pipes on the market, should steel still be the preferred material for fire sprinkler systems?

BlazeMaster® CPVC piping is a specialty thermoplastic used reliably across more than 60 countries for decades, and poses a real challenge to traditional materials found in fire sprinkler systems in both cost, performance, and lasting quality. Here’s how:
Easy Installation

CPVC piping can be installed with a quick and simple one-step joining system, which eliminates the need for complicated heat-fusion techniques traditionally used in steel installations. CPVC is not just flexible – meaning it can get to hard-to-reach areas, but also light weight. For a standard DN25 pipe, CPVC weighs 0.390 kilograms per metre when empty. In comparison, steel systems can weigh 2.440 kilograms for the same measurement when empty.
