Wavin not drowning

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

You’d expect the Dutch to know a thing or two about water management, so it’s no surprise that the design team for the 620-bed Maasstad Hospital in Holland chose plumbing, heating and drainage firm Wavin’s Tigris K1 System. Its corrosion and scale-resistant properties specifically suit the composite pipes to health and hygiene applications, while an aluminium layer reduces thermal resistance- important when hot water flows run at up to 70˚C.
