Lifelines of a connected society: Plastic conduit systems
There are different kinds of plastics:
Plastic conduit systems are not disposable products, but high-quality and durable industrial goods. Just like veins, their applications run through all important spheres of life and have been influencing our connected society over decades. Living without plastics is no longer imaginable today.
Plastic is one of the most important materials of the modern society, and our life cannot be imagined without it in its various manifestations. Plastic will continue to be a very popular material in the future for its manifold design options alone. Above all for durable investment goods, plastic is the ideal material base, since it can be used to cover the vital, essential areas of our infrastructure – POWER. WATER. DATA. AIR.
Using plastic conduit systems in public infrastructure
Advantages of plastic conduit systems
The paradox of combining plastics and ecology is only apparent.
Plastic conduits are extremely durable and high-quality industrial goods, not short-living consumer or disposable products made of cheap plastic. Plastic conduit systems stand for sustainability and can be used up to 100 years and then reused. Therefore, they are not disposable products, but a fundamental part of modern infrastructure. Just like veins running through an organism, plastic conduit systems are part of our infrastructure in all areas of our life.
Plastic conduit systems are characterised by their long durability and low vulnerability. They guarantee high quality standards, are low-weight and can be easily installed. Additional positive characteristics are chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, specific insulation properties, pressure resistance and static loading capacity. Plastic pipes made of recycling materials are used in many areas today: For example, in stormwater management, for drainage pipes or cable protection.
Triple strength in construction engineering
Everything that must be transported safely from A to B runs through FRÄNKISCHE conduit systems. There is hardly any field left where our products are not being used. Solution competence, diversity and innovative energy – this is what our three construction-related divisions Drainage Systems, Electrical Systems and Building Technology stand for.
What technologies and products will building companies, installers, planners or local communities use in the future to meet the megatrends of our time? Our future map shows where we already offer solutions for the challenges of our time – and which goals we would like to reach in the future.
Professional association for the plastics industry
TEPPFA is The European Plastic Pipe and Fittings Association. Its 12 multinational company members and 15 national associations represent 350 companies that manufacture 3 million tonnes of plastic pipes and fittings annually.
