This article will discuss the environmental implications constructs must consider when creating a new piping system.
Online PR News – 01-June-2011 – – FT Pipeline Systems, the UK’s leading provider of piping and piping components, is underlining the importance of fulfilling environmental responsibilities with regard to the installation of new pipe systems.
Environmental issues and sustainability are key priorities today across most industries, but due to the nature of the products supplied by FT Pipeline Systems, environmental awareness is at the forefront of every process. They have adopted a policy to comply with all environmental legislation and regulations. Their Policy has been written in conjunction with an Environmental, Quality and Health & Safety Management System and with a commitment to ISO 14001:2004. The organisation is further dedicated to reducing waste, preventing pollution and making improvements through the Environmental Management System.
Each product supplied by FT Pipeline has specific benefits and risks associated with it, but by regularly addressing environmental concerns, these are considered and solutions provided that can ultimately benefit the environment. As an example, Steel Pipes, provided specifically for transferring water or waste are now replacing many old iron pipes. The steel pipes, available in a variety of formats, have a much longer lifespan – of up to 100 years – requiring less maintenance and providing a longer period before replacement is necessary.
In addition, key components, such as the E-joint fittings ideal for Water pipes are designed so that they do not suffer corrosion or leaks giving them no minimum longevity of life. These are also ideal for all soil types and a variety of environments because of the complete corrosion protection.
Duncan Frazer, Managing Director of FT Pipeline systems, said: “We regularly review our environmental objectives to ensure our products meet the strictest environmental legislation. It is our aim to set standards within the industry and important for us to provide products with the least environmental impact.”
All staff are committed to ensuring that this policy is understood, implemented and maintained throughout the organisation so FT Pipeline systems can offer a comprehensive solution for many projects.
FT Pipeline Systems continually addresses the environmental impacts of their products and endeavours to reduce any harmful effects that they may have on their immediate environment. For more information, visit www.ftpipelinesystems.co.uk or call 01543 416024
