The construction of a new boutique hotel in York required a long-lasting, reliable pipe system to meet the needs of the hot and cold water network.
Offering a reliable solution over the lifetime of the system, Durapipe HTA provided a high performing alternative to copper. Corrosion and limescale resistant, the system retains a smooth bore, ensuring optimum flow rates remain throughout the life of the system. The water services within the hotel are tank fed, so Durapipe HTA, in sizes up to 125mm, was installed to convey the mains cold water up to the tank in the loft, the water is then transported to a booster set in the plant room on the ground floor, before being distributed to the riser on each floor of the accommodation.
Commenting on the specification, Steve Austin from WH Good said: “Durapipe HTA is widely used as a high performance system for hot and cold water services and was the ideal choice for this project. In addition to the advantages for the client, the system also offered us benefits during the installation process and is a system we will look to use on future projects.”
