The story of ELGEF Plus

High performance in critical environments

Once installed, PE pipes absorb pressure surges, vibrations, and soil-related stress. This minimizes the risk of breaks and leaks, ensuring safety through flexibility. When relining or using horizontal drilling, their compatibility with trenchless technologies saves time, prevents infrastructure damage, and reduces noise and traffic

Trusted partnerships through customer proximity

With more than 25 years of market experience, the modular range delivers quality and durability globally. Customers trust our extensive PE solutions and specialized services for successful water and gas piping network projects. 

Quality and performance for peace of mind

To go beyond customer's needs of safety and continuous high performance the component system of ELGEF Plus gets thoroughly checked. GF Piping Systems assures outstanding quality and performance through intensive testing in their accredited laboratory (ISO/IEC 17025) in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. On top of that, the high-performance products are certified by over 90 approvals worldwide.

    How ELGEF Plus was decisive for the reduction of household energy consumption in Germany

    The city of Soest in North Rhine-Westphalia, is running a pilot project with the intention of supplying some 600 residential units with cold local heat. ELGEF Plus electrofusion welding sockets and fittings are used to route the long polyethylene pipes. In addition, the ELGEF Plus pressure tapping valves, rotatable through 360°, make sure the numerous branch lines reach the individual dwellings. The corrosion-free and chemical-resistant components from GF Piping Systems are likewise made from polyethylene, making them ideally suited for use in Soest.
