K1 Installed Throughout The Site Of A Monastery
|The K1 Multilayer Press-fit Plumbing System for potable, sanitary and heating applications has been installed throughout the site of a Monastery situated in the heart of Crossgar, County Down.
K1 from Certus, Wavin's approach to above ground drainage and plumbing for industrial, public, commercial and multi-occupancy buildings, now forms the integral plumbing for a new heating system installed during the complete restoration of Tobar Mhuire, a 1950's Passionist Order institution.
As a large and active multi-residential building, phase 2 of the project demanded a high-specification piping system that could offer an effective plumbing solution, but would also minimise the need for on-going maintenance, offering peace of mind for the Monastery’s residents.
K1 provided a high-performance application of robust yet flexible piping, which together with a secure jointing system was both simple to install and easy to 'fit and forget'.

Contractor Dermot Hinds said: "The Monastery is a constant hive of activity, due to high visitor levels and a live-in religious order, so the assembly of the pipework needed to be quick and practical to reduce installation time and minimise any disruption to the day-to-day running of the facility.
"Having used many different press-fit plumbing systems in the past, I am always interested in new innovations that can make installation easier, or maximise a system’s functionality, and K1 did just that. As a press-fit system, the fittings required no soldering, welding or thread cutting. The K1 pipe also bends with ease, whilst still being able to retain its shape, which reduces the number of connections required. It’s quick to install and once in, requires very little maintenance – all attributes which save time and money.
"I had already specified a number of other Wavin products for this project and was advised that the products would deliver optimum performance when working together with the K1 system, and this was definitely the case."
