					UNDERFLOOR HEATING & PLUMBING SYSTEMS                         Building Solutions

               Recognised for quality and performance, the REHAU Heating
               and Plumbing pipework system is the ideal solution for hot
               and cold water, central heating and underfloor heating.

               The first REHAU underfloor heating and plumbing pipes were
               installed 25 years ago and over 700 million metres of REHAU
               pipe have been installed since then.

               The REHAU system benefits from:                         -   All REHAU products are manufactured
               - High density cross linked polyethylene (PE-Xa)           to ISO 9001 standards.
