Heating & cooling networks

Flexalen pipes are assembled by electric or butt welding by the contractor himself and/or a plastic welding company. That is no long waiting times for expensive welding personnel, X-ray control and subsequent insulation of the joint. All this is carried out in one work step by the contractor or the plastic welding company itself. This is where the huge savings benefit the timetable for rolling out the district heating network as well as the economy for consumers.
