Benefits Of Polyethylene Pipe Systems

Polyethene pipelines are favoured by water companies for the delivery of drinking water to millions of homes across the United Kingdom.

Designed and manufactured to last over 50 years at its maximum operating pressure it is the best product for all water main installations, gas pipework and fire hydrants/sprinkler mains.

HDPE pipe systems are great for the following reasons:

Polyethene has the ability to expand and contract with fluctuating operating system pressures and ground movement.

This piping system’s flexibility whilst maintaining pressure holding strength means the network remains leak-free and suitable for continual use for a very long period.

Able to be fusion welded giving asset owners long-term confidence the pipeline will operate leak-free for its full design life.

What Is Protecta Line?

Protecta Line is the original plastic pipe system trusted by water authorities, housebuilders, contractors and installers to safely transport drinking water through contaminated land for over 20 years.

Protecta Line plastic piping has a multi-layer construction consisting of an internal polyethylene core for carrying clean water, an aluminium barrier layer and finally an outer polyethylene layer for protection.

All our engineers are WIAPS registered & Approved installers and highly trained with the latest equipment to install, commission and repair all Protecta Line plastic pipes in Barking.

Can You Butt Fusion Weld HDPE Pipe?

Heat or butt fusion welding is how our HDPE pipe systems are installed in the UK.

The installation uses a hydraulic butt fusion machine that welds the ends of the HDPE pipes.

Can You Electrofusion Weld The HDPE Pipe?

Electrofusion is a method of joining HDPE pipes where butt fusion is not practicable.

Prefabricated fittings are used, incorporating an electrical heating coil that melts the plastic of both the fitting and the pipe, causing them to fuse together.

An electrofusion control unit (ECU) supplies the electrical energy necessary to heat the coil.

The basic fusion parameters: temperature, pressure and time, are controlled by the ECU which is programmed to establish these parameters from the barcode read from the fitting itself.

Pipeline Services We Offer

Here are some of the services we offer as specialist pipeline installers:


HDPE pipes are used to provide an underground water supply.

This is because they provide a zero leak rate and they are more environmentally sustainable than an average pipe since it doesn’t carry toxins.

Can HDPE Pipes Be Used For Hot Water?

HDPE pipes can be used for hot water as a liner in a multilayer pipe.
HDPE pipes were originally not equipt to stand the temperature of hot water however, suppliers then developed cross-linked polyethylene which provided the high-temperature performance needed to be used for hot water.

How long will the HDPE pipe last?

HDPE pipes are built to last a very long time almost 50-100 years this is because of the high-density polyethylene that the pipe is made out of.

They are built to last so you wouldn’t have to replace them for a while.
