aquatherm red is the first plastic sprinkler pipe system certified by VDS Schadenverhütung GmbH, Europe's largest institute for corporate safety. The material used, fusiolen PP-R FS, was developed for the special requirements of sprinkler systems. aquatherm red offers a high level of safety due to its flame-retardant properties and its corrosion resistance, which saves resources and protects the environment. The pipe and fitting welding also ensures a tight connection.

The aquatherm PP-R piping systems fulfil the requirements of building material class B1 DIN 4102-1. Compared to natural materials such as wood, cork, or wool, they do not show an increased fire gas toxicity. This means no dioxin is produced during combustion. aquatherm red hi is therefore flame-retardant and suitable for plastic sprinkler pipe systems. The composite pipes, produced in a multi-layer extrusion process, are given increased stability by the fibre filling introduced in the middle layer.
aquatherm red is made of fusiolen PP-R FS. Due to its flame retardant properties and its corrosion resistance, the plastic pipe offers a high level of safety. aquatherm red is suitable for direct installation in concrete. By comparison: When using metal sprinkler systems, corrosion occurs as soon as the metal and the wet concrete meet. Corrosion can only be prevented with the help of special protection, which makes the installation of metal pipe systems in concrete complex and expensive. The piping system is not only suitable for sprinkler systems as a wet system (in concrete or F30 ceiling areas), but also for low-pressure fine spray technology.
The aquatherm PP-R FS sprinkler pipe system meets the requirements of building material class B 1 DIN 4102-1/ B-s1,d0 DIN EN 13501 (flame retardant). Compared with natural materials such as wood, cork, or wool, they do not exhibit increased fire gas toxicity. Therefore, no dioxin is produced during combustion.
All fire prevention systems which can prove equivalent licensing are suited for aquatherm red.

Fire protection requirements and standards for planning and construction
of sprinkler systems vary locally. Thus, the application of aquatherm red in any case has to be agreed
and coordinated with the local national fire protection authorities, the constructor and the building insurers. Further certification either national or local are in process.
The system of pipes and fittings must be installed in accordance with the „Technical Instruction aquatherm red pipe“ dated 01/12/2012 Issue 2. The current valid version of the „Technical Instruction aquatherm red“ is available from info(at)aquatherm.de.
aquatherm red pipes can be stored in all outside temperatures. Pipes should be stored and transported flat and fully supported along their length. Bending pressures are to be avoided. High impact should be avoided at externely low temperatures. Although aquatherm red pipe pipes are extremely robust, it is recommended to treat the material always with care.
Pipes from fusiolen® PP-R FS should not be installed (without protection) where subject to UV-radiation. All aquatherm red pipes and fittings are supplied in UV-protected packaging to bridge transport and assembly time. Ultraviolet rays have an influence on all high polymeric plastics. Hence, pipes should not be stored unprotected outside for a long time. The maximum storage time is (outside) 6 months.
