Ring Seal Soil Pipes & Fittings
Ring Seal refers to the method by which pipes and fittings are connected. The “ring” is actually a captive rubber seal which is contained within a groove inside the neck of the fitting. As the lubricated pipe is introduced into the fitting the ring is compressed against the pipe, forming an airtight and watertight seal. The lubricant and the rubber working together allow for a degree of flexibility which protects the soil stack against system movement from both mechanical forces and expansion and contraction.

What Is The System Made From?
This system is made from PVC. It can withstand liquid temperatures of 76°C with a constant flow, and up to 100°C (the boiling point of water, provided that this flow is for a period of no longer than two minutes. This makes the ring seal system perfect for all domestic and most commercial installations – however if the soil system is likely to be subjected to discharge of acids, chemicals and continuous high temperatures we suggest you consider our solvent soil system.
This 110mm Ring Seal Soil Pipe System is manufactured in PVC-U to BS EN 1401-1: 1998 / BS4660: 2000.
