Trusted partnerships

With over 25 years of experience in the market, ELGEF Plus has proven its quality and durability to its customers around the globe. Numerous of those customers rely on the extensive solutions and services offered by GF Piping Systems globally to get the best results and success in their piping network projects. Customer closeness is valued as a key factor here – continuing support throughout the different project stages as well as local proximity.

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.

High performance

Once laid, PE pipes absorb surges in pressure, vibration, and stress caused by soil movements or natural ground movements. This reduces the risks of breaks and leaks, therefore creating safety through flexibility. Keep your peace of mind in relining or horizontal drilling of piping systems due to the compatibility with trenchless technologies, avoiding long construction times, unnecessary damage to the infrastructure, like cutting roads, increased traffic, and noise pollution. High performance is also given when it comes to cost-effectiveness. Not only does ELGEF Plus reduce repair costs due to non-corrosive material, but its low weight also makes it possible to reduce transport costs.

Pioneering introduction

GF Piping Systems entered the water and gas market with the ELGEF 24V brand in 1974. In order to take the product range to the next level and create more possibilities with the existing ideas, GF Piping Systems launched, for the first time worldwide, a polyethylene system made of PE100.

Convincing with strong innovations

The new ELGEF Plus PE system proved itself over the years convincing the market with its numerous advantages due to increased safety and reliability as well as ease of installation. All of that assured a very high-cost effectivity and guarantee for a long-lasting lifetime.

Infinite re-development

Throughout the years, the product range of ELGEF Plus kept growing and re-innovating itself. From patented technologies and pioneering ideas, the brand developed a significant positive impact on the market.

The climate-neutral heating concept, Germany

Climate change and sustainability have become deeply embedded in social consciousness. More and more people are forcing us to rethink how we treat our planet. While events often appear to be slow at national and international level, certain municipalities are taking matters into their own hands. The city of Soest in North Rhine-Westphalia, for example, is running a pilot project with the intention of supplying some 600 residential units with cold local heat. The scheme is making use of products from GF Piping Systems.
