How Total Pipes meet Plastic Piping Standards

Choosing Plastic Pipes needn’t be difficult- not when Total Pipeline Systems provide a complete range of products that inevitably match your exact specification.

As your go-to provider of Plastic Piping, Total Pipes are more than capable of delivering suitable products for your intended application, ensuring that you achieve the functionality that you require.


Plastic Piping Standards are determined by the materials that are used to manufacture them, not forgetting their function and performance.

Plastic Piping

Here at Total Pipes, we have a choice of Plastic Piping available for you to choose from, so be sure to take the following into consideration:

Polyethylene Pipes

The Polyethylene Pipes are regulated by EN 12201 Standards. These pipes are designed specifically to provide physical and chemical protection against various impacts which makes them ideal for maintaining the quality of water.

Unlike other Plastic Piping, the Polyethylene Pipes are highly resistant, meaning that you can benefit from long-lasting products.

Polypropylene Pipes

Another type of Plastic Piping is Polypropylene. The regulations for these pipes are dependent on the application.

Often, they are used to convey and discharge waste. Designed to meet EN 1451, the Polypropylene Pipes offer heat and impact resistance, along with longitudinal shrinkage and melt-mass flow rate.

• PVC Pipes

Plastic Pipes are designed to be versatile, therefore they are suitable for an array of applications. Some PVC Pipes are used for hot and cold water installations, whilst others are ideal for conveying water under great pressure.

As well as this, the PVC Pipes are ideal for underground drainage systems and sanitary applications but when compared to other Plastic Piping, there are more standards regulating the PVC Pipes.

Why Plastic Piping?

There are countless advantages associated with pipes that are manufactured from plastic, whether it be Polyethylene, Polypropylene or PVC, here are just a few of them:

Quality.

With Plastic Piping having a life expectancy of up to 100 years, it’s no surprise that the pipes supplied by Total Pipes are becoming increasingly popular.

As a result of European Standards, there is now a level playing field across the industry which makes it easier for you to sustain the quality of your underground drainage systems.

Durability.

Underground, the soil texture, temperature, moisture, oxygen and chemicals change which can make it difficult to install pipes that last and suit the nature of the environment. One of the main benefits of the pipes that we supply at Total Pipes is that as a result of them being made from plastic, they can prevent the risk of contamination and leakage.

Versatility.

Our Plastic Pipes are ideal for a wide range of demanding applications and environments, so when there comes a time that you require a high level of durability and reliability, you can rest assured that you’re in capable hands with Total Pipes!

Affordability.

The cost of Plastic Pipes is yet another reason why customers choose to purchase from Total Pipes. We have an extensive range of Plastic Piping available which is less chemically reactive and less prone to rust and corrosion, allowing for low maintenance and repair costs.

Simplicity.

When it comes to assembly, our products don’t only meet high-quality standards but are designed to be flexible which makes them easy to work with and prevents them from cracking and breakage. The lightweight design of the Plastic Pipes enables you to handle and install them carefully and quickly.
