ALUPEX pipes consist of three layers: The inner layer of electron beam cross-linked polyethylene (PE-Xc) ensures resistance to high temperatures (up to 95 °C at 10 bar) and mechanical load. The aluminum middle layer guarantees flexibility, compressive strength and perfect distribution of the compressive load. The outer layer of chemically cross-linked polyethylene (PE-Xb) offers high impact resistance.

Excellent corrosion resistance

The inner and outer layers of the cross-linked polyethylene used for ALUPEX provide excellent resistance to corrosion, sedimentation, erosion and contamination.

Narrow bending radius

Cross-linked polyethylene pipes are extremely flexible. The narrow bending radius allows for more accentuated curvatures. This reduces the number of fittings required for ALUPEX.

Durability

The ALUPEX brass press fittings without O-rings offer safe and reliable connection for a long period with no weak points.

Oxygen tightness

ALUPEX multilayer pipes are completely oxygen-proof thanks to the aluminum. This characteristic makes ALUPEX the best solution for heating applications.

Multilayer Pipes

Multilayer composite pipes combine the advantages of plastic and metal. Thanks to the flexibility of plastic and the strength of metal, the pipes are ideally suited to withstand the wide range of temperatures and pressures found in both cold and hot water systems.

Pre-insulated Pipes

Easy to join and install, lightweight pre-insulated pipes help to minimize energy loss and reduce running costs over the long-term. Insulated with efficient, high-energy foam, pre-insulated pipes are ideal for both new constructions and retrofitting.

Adapters & Transitions

Adapters and transitions are essential for connecting metal with plastic pipes or even two plastic pipes. This range covers multiple materials and offers reliable connections while offering high flexibility during assembly.

Bends & Elbows

Bends and elbows are essential fittings that easily change the direction of pipes. The extensive range available offers not only multiple materials but also different curvature degrees to easily fit your piping system.

Caps & End Caps

Caps provide a tight seal and stop the flow direction of a piping system. GF Piping System caps are available in different dimensions, different plastic materials and malleable iron to fit all of your needs. Temporary caps ease the pressure testing of an installed pipeline.

Couplers & Sockets

Simplify the pipe installation process with couplers and sockets. Specially designed to slide easily over pipes with no extra equipment required, they are cemented, welded or mechanically connected to create a pressure-tight joint.

Manifolds / Distributors

GF Piping Systems manifolds and distributors are used to distribute drinking water from one supply line to several drinking water lines. All water-carrying fittings are made of corrosion-resistant materials to withstand high pressures and temperatures in building technology installations.

Reducers

Reducers are used for effecting a smooth transition between two pipes or fittings with different dimensions. The wide selection available covers an exceptionally diverse area of applications. They are available in short or long versions and in centric or excentric versions.

Tees, Y-Pieces and Crosses

When creating branch lines, lightweight tee, wye, and cross fittings make installation much easier. These fittings are made from a range of materials and malleable iron and cover multiple dimension possibilities including various reductions on the same fitting.

Clamping and Installation Tools

Designed for stress-free installation with minimal movement during the welding and cooling process, these tools can be clamped into position with ease. The GF Piping Systems range includes multiple innovative variants for maximum practicality.

Cutting Tools

If a pipe needs to be cut exactly, it is essential to have a cutting tool that is up to the job. The GF Piping Systems range comprises state-of-the-art cutters that can cut many different pipe sizes and materials properly and quickly.

Accessories

We provide a wide range of accessories to support your installation projects. Accessories are available for use throughout the life-cycle of your system and available in an agreed time-frame.
