Timesaver is a mechanically jointed cast iron soil system to BS 416 part 2, British Standard Kitemark approved. The range includes push-fit couplings that turn a mechanical system into one with a traditional socket appearance of yesteryear, as depicted in BS 416 part 1 – but without the labour intensive caulked jointing method.
Supplied in a black water based primer coat the product is easy to overpaint and is the modern solution for external cast iron soil stacks, often seen on listed buildings, pre-1960’s housing and properties situated in areas of conservation.
The Heritage couplings are available in 50, 75 and 100mm diameters that connect standard timesaver pipe and fittings.
Pipes are available in 3metre lengths for 50mm diameter (also available on 75 and 100mm), and 1.8m (6ft) lengths in 75 and 100mm diameters specially introduced to meet this field of application.
The Heritage couplings are available in three types:
• With fixing ears to fit to the wall
• Plain without ears for connection only
• Slip version available to use when pipework already installed.
The couplings are easy to install – with the application of saint-gobain lubricant (see product listing) – pushing the socket over the spigot of the pipe or fitting until it abutts to a central register.
When suitably painted with a quality external paint system – the Timesaver Heritage pipework adds the final aesthetic touch to the traditional appearance of your property.
