Polypipe’s largest order to date for its Terrain db12 plastic piping system was for student accommodation in Islington, close to City University’s Northampton Square site. It was for over 3300 m of this engineered acoustic pipe and was specified by Dorman Engineering for soil and waste systems

The 1.5 acre Pure City site provides accommodation for 805 students across two blocks — as well as a separate sports hall and teaching accommodation. Terrain db12 in sizes of 75, 110 and 160 mm was supplied, along with thousands of associated fittings.

This triple-layer pipe system is easy to install. Co-polymer polypropylene layers and acoustically engineered fittings dampen airborne noise and transmitted sound.

Daniel Shanley, project manager with Dorman Engineering, said, ‘The benefits of db12 made it a clear winner over cast iron and traditional PVC alternatives for this project.’
