- Code compliance
- Reliable joints
- Lower condensation potential
Should a leak occur, people, equipment and valuable property will be protected from possible harm. Drain-Guard provides the secure environment necessary for piping in vital areas of a wide variety of buildings, including hospitals, museums, historical sites, libraries, art galleries, theatres, data centres, restaurants, and arenas.
Drain-Guard is a double containment piping system using System 15 and or System XFR as its primary components. The many performance benefits of System 15 and System XFR are enhanced by this dual pipe concept.
RANGE OF SIZES:
Carrier: 1-1/2" to 8"
Containment: 4" to 12"
(Larger sizes available upon request)
- Healthcare/Hospital Use
- Historical Sites
- Museums & Libraries
- High-Tech & Data Storage Environments (Network & Server Rooms etc.)
- Theatres, Restaurants (Public Areas)
- Residential Buildings
- Laboratory Applications
Drain-Guard pipe and fitting components are third party certified to CSA B181.2
Double wall solvent weld joints set a new standard for joint tightness in a DWV application.
LOWER CONDENSATION POTENTIAL
The excellent insulative properties of System 15 and System XFR are enhanced with the secondary pipe and air barrier. Thus, condensation potential is greatly reduced.
Meets the same requirements of System 15® and System XFR®
SYSTEM 15 DWV PIPE AND FITTINGS
IPEX System 15 Drain, Waste and Vent pipe and fittings shall be certified to CSA B181.2. When combustible pipe and fittings are used in buildings required to be of noncombustible construction, they shall be listed by ULC to the Standard CAN/ULC S102.2 and clearly marked with the certification logo indicating a Flame Spread Rating not exceeding 25.
IPEX System 15 pipe and fittings have been tested and certified by CSA to the CSA B181.2 standard.
SYSTEM XFR DWV PIPE AND FITTINGS
IPEX System XFR Drain, Waste and Vent pipe and fittings shall be certified to CSA B181.2 and when used in noncombustible construction, high buildings and air plenums, they shall be tested and listed in accordance with CAN/ULC S102.2 and clearly marked with the certification logo indicating a Flame Spread Rating not more than 25 and a Smoke Developed Classification not exceeding 50.
System XFR pipe and fittings have been tested and certified by CSA to the CSA B181.2 standard. System XFR pipe and fittings are listed with ITS (Warnock Hersey) to exhibit Flame and Smoke values as per CAN/ULC S102.2-10.
Since plastic piping systems are used so widely in construction today, I’ve teamed up with Kevin Yong-Ping, one of IPEX’s engineers, to raise the awareness of firestopping best practices as they relate to combustible pipe penetrations.
When do the flame spread rating (FSR) of not more than 25 and smoke developed classification (SDC) of not more than 50 come into play?
