Reliable fire protection with aquatherm red pipe

Sprinkler systems offer reliable fire protection — whether in industrial or commercial construction, hotels and stadiums, or residential construction. Sprinkler systems not only recognize and report a fire, they also initiate the containment and termination processes to prevent a fire from spreading. In order to minimise the damage caused by extinguishing water, they trigger selectively, meaning that only the sprinklers near the fire source open while all others remain closed. Thus, they represent effective protection for people and buildings alike.

aquatherm red pipe is a plastic sprinkler piping system that holds approval certificates from all the major certification societies. For detailed information please see the respective certificates in our download centre.

Our polypropylene piping has very special material properties: It is flame retardant (building material class B1), corrosion-resistant, and offers maximum safety thanks to the fusion of pipe and fittings. Compared to metallic pipes aquatherm red pipe has a much lower weight, which makes for faster and safer installation. Ready-to-install custom prefabricated components can further reduce installation times.

Thanks to aquatherm red pipe, effective fire protection and spectacular architecture are not mutually exclusive: the piping system is suitable for laying in concrete, thus guaranteeing invisible protection that ensures architectural freedom of design.

aquatherm red pipe system is suitable for classic wet sprinkler systems (in concrete or F30 ceiling areas), and also for low-pressure fine-mist systems. These systems use substantially less extinguishing water than conventional sprinkler systems and thus reduce damage to buildings and equipment.

Product benefits

aquatherm red pipe


  • low weight compared to metal pipingn
  • Corrosion resistance and resistance to chemicals
  • kurze Verarbeitungszeit
  • tight connection of pipe and fitting by fusion technology
  • no seal: sealing elements are not required
  • invisible fire protection
  • prefabricated components
  • architectural freedom of design


aquatherm pipes and fittings are connected by heat fusion, which creates a homogeneous, cohesive unit with no leak paths. Heat fusion connections are stronger than the pipe itself, providing lasting safety at these critical points of a piping system. A properly executed aquatherm fusion creates a permanent leakproof connection.
