aquatherm prefabrication:

“Time is money” – a maxim of life that proves true every day, especially in the construction industry. The sanitary, heating and air-conditioning installations of any building project are always a time challenge, not only for architects and planners. The implementation on site then presents the executing site managers and installers with often not inconsiderable problems.

The aquatherm prefabrication offers customer specific solutions. aquatherm designs and builds manifolds and special components directly in its own factory according to the customer’s specifications and ships them ready for installation to any place in the world. All that is required is the relevant planning data, 3D drawings and/or sketches with dimensions. Subsequently, aquatherm provides a quotation including material extract and drawing. A competent team of experienced technicians is on hand to provide customers with advice and assistance.



  • fast assembly times
  • On-time delivery
  • Weight saving through use of PP-R
  • consistent quality due to industrial prefabrication
  • 100 % “Made in Germany

Four simple steps to the finished component


1. inquiry and examination

In the beginning we need as much information as possible. A CAD drawing would be perfect, but a dimensioned hand sketch will also do. aquatherm distribution query forms help to collect the most important information quickly and in detail. The aquatherm design team checks the submitted information for plausibility and completeness. Here, the more information, the better. We are also happy to provide our customers with our article master, in common CAD formats, for their planning software. Under the following links you can download the forms directly and fill them out digitally:

2. planning and coordination

The aquatherm design team plans the manifold after the test has been completed. This is where the expertise and know-how of the system manufacturer, accumulated over four decades, flows in. The customer then receives a detailed CAD drawing for inspection and production approval. The drawing includes a CAD parts list with item number for each fitting piece. In addition, you can receive our CAD data for transfer to your existing planning data on request.

3. manufacturing

After approval, we manufacture the desired products in the prefabrication department, which is equipped with the most modern processing machines, some of which we have developed ourselves.

The 25-strong highly qualified team manufactures manifolds and special components for customers all over the world on a production area of approx. 1650 sqm. Here we assemble in an absolutely clean environment. Dirty, dusty and cold paving conditions, which are common on construction sites, thus have no influence on the final result.

Another great advantage is the time saved due to professional prefabrication. The direct access to all articles of the inventory alone makes it possible to react quickly to any particularity or eventuality and to implement it without delay. While on the construction site missing articles or defects arising during assembly lead to delays, here you can always reach into the shelves of the warehouse.

The cost of on-site installation tools, which can be quite extensive for large manifolds, is eliminated. The shortage of skilled workers is compensated. No manifold or special component leaves the aquatherm prefabrication without a passed tightness and function test. This allows us to offer a 10-year guarantee with coverage of 20 million euros per claim.

4. delivery

After successful testing and inspection of the individual assemblies, aquatherm delivers the finished manifolds or special components via wholesalers directly to the construction site. The lower weight, compared to stainless steel, steel and copper pipes, allows easier handling during transport and on the construction site. Even here aquatherm supports its customers and offers them and the executing craftsmen competent advice and support for all questions and problems. Our service technicians will of course also support you on site.
