value-bar-icon-gear2 Long-lasting solutions

In the utility sector, the corrosion-free systems made of Polyethylene provide long-lasting solutions with an estimated lifetime of 100 years.

value-bar-icon-1 Reliable and optimized networks

Our high-quality PE plastic systems warrant the best leakage-free installation. By providing the right piping components and optimized welding machines, GF Piping Systems guarantees economical, reliable, and safe operations.

value-bar-icon-3 Guaranteed installation quality and customizing

Our specialized solutions include Ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) that provides testing options at the point of installation. It evaluates and provides you with scientific proof that the welds are secure.Our customizing teams develop custom made parts and off-site prefabrication. With prefabrication, customers can reduce the assembly work and time-on-site.

value-bar-icon-2 Better control of your pressure

Our state of art pressure management technology can prevent over-pressurizing your pipes while delivering accurate, stable flow, and increased flow capacity to your customers. The significantly reduced weight and corrosion free polymer body of the smart valve can decrease installation costs by 30-40%.

A lifetime of consistent performance

GF Piping Systems offer sustainable solutions for the advanced piping network. Getting everything from one source means comprehensive solutions that are perfectly compatible. A combination of fittings, and with state of the art fusion and jointing technology as well as tools results in reliable and cost-efficient installations.

Water transportation lines

For the secure transport of water, pipes, fittings and valves must be connected safely and reliably – especially for large dimensions. GF Piping Systems understands your need for proper tooling, high-performance jointing technologies, and connection parts as well as expert support on-site. It is our experience and know-how in building, operating, and maintaining large dimensioned piping systems that enable us to create the right solutions for your varied installations in water transport applications. 

Water distribution lines

Connecting mains, distribution pipes, and service lines safely and reliably is crucial for water distribution. Distribution lines in the potable water grid are typically in the range from d63 up to d355. Our piping systems have a design pressure of up to 16 bar. GF Piping Systems offers a comprehensive range of jointing technologies to satisfy your needs. With our electrofusion system, ELGEF Plus, a homogeneous material connection of pipe and fitting, will contribute to a reliable network. This system also includes all the necessary tools and machines essential for proper installation. With the MULTI/JOINT system, all kinds of materials can be connected in a quick, safe, and simple way – one size fits and grips all.

Water house connections / service lines

In the last stage of the water grid, service lines bring drinking water from the regional grid supply system into houses, buildings, or plants, passing through the water meter. Due to its flexibility and material homogenous jointing technologies, amongst many other positive characteristics, PE is today’s primary material for new installations. Thanks to the modular ELGEF Plus electrofusion system, an appropriate solution can be found for every application. Each ELGEF fitting and saddle is made to match and, when put together, form reliable leak-proof connections.

Highest level of safety and reliability with FM certification for firefighting water pipes

Safety, reliability, and regulatory compliance are the essential requirements for our utility customers. GF Piping Systems offer FM certified systems according to the ISO and ASTM standards for firefighting water pipes.

Underground fire protection

In case of fire, a secure and reliable supply of water for underground distribution and above ground sprinkler systems is crucial for emergency management. The complete system relies on a consistent supply of water with adequate pressure and the right flow rate. Our PE underground systems are FM approved. Sprinkler lines and connection must meet local fire laws. Corrosion-free and reliable jointing systems are key criteria.

Water storage

The water network must include natural or artificial reservoirs, where drinking and service water can be stored. In case of fire, water can be drawn from these reservoirs for firefighting. In case of damage to pipelines or fluctuations in consumption, they help to maintain a constant water pressure throughout the network and equalize water volumes.  Our modular system guarantees maximum flexiblity and secures the water supply.

Water intake lines

Water intake lines convey raw water from the source, rivers or the sea, to the storage area before its treatment. Since long distances are bridged, a corrosive free solution is needed. Often involving large dimensions and complete reliable leak-proof systems with a lifespan of over 100 years is a must to ensure constant water supply without interrupting operations. 

Irrigation

Irrigation includes drainage, soil reclamation and erosion control. If any of these factors are ignored due to either a lack of understanding or planning, agricultural productivity is certain to decline. It is a system extending across many technical and non-technical disciplines and only works efficiently and continually when all the components are integrated seamlessly. GF Piping Systems provides excellent and technically competent products for both new build as well as maintenance and repair of today’s irrigation networks.

Greenhouses

Greenhouses must create different ecological conditions such as humidity, temperature and soil aeration, often in very demanding environments. Food production will be separated from the local weather by building large green houses or implementing extended irrigation to increase the output of food per unit area. Systems that are simple to install and ensure a secure, water tight distribution over the total product lifespan, will become an important attribute. GF Piping Systems provides irrigation solutions that offer zero leakage and are designed to last at least 50 years.

Fertigation

One of the most important innovations recently in the field of vegetable cultivation is fertigation. It is now also present in open air cultivation. Today, fertigation introducing a specific nutrient into the irrigation water, is a system to increase quality and yield of the cultivation. It limits water waste and manure distribution which also reduces the pollution of soil due to lower nitrogen consumption. GF Piping solutions has numerous solutions to produce fertigation units, including iJOINT compression fittings and saddles, PVC-U fittings and valves, PE electrofusion and butt fusion fittings, measurement and control equipment, to produce manifolds.

Landscape irrigation

Landscaping of gardens, parks and even roadside verges requires expertise in horticulture and artistic design to enable flora and fauna to flourish in likely unnatural conditions. GF Piping Systems offers products and services for designers to ensure long years of operation, even in the most demanding landscaping projects.

Sports ground

Sports grounds need specially designed and highly reliable irrigation systems. In some cases even high pressure pipelines are installed to ensure the proper distribution of water over long distances.
Therefore we provide high quality jointing technology including our electrofusion system ELGEF Plus and iJOINT compression fittings to ensure the transport and distribution of water for an outstanding performance on the sports ground.
