Piping systems for building drainage
Since introducing the first concealed cistern 50 years ago, Geberit has continued to innovate, expanding to a diverse range of high-performance products that incorporate common elements for maximum compatibility.
To meet the demands of an increasingly vertical architecture and construction industry, we have now developed the Pluvia roof drainage system and the Sovent building drainage solution.
Both complement our trade waste solutions, as well as emphasise cost and space savings without compromising performance.
Siphonic roof drainage systems
Incorporating of the latest in siphonic drainage technology, the Pluvia system features a high discharge rate that significantly reduces the required number of pipes in comparison with conventional roof drainage systems.
A non-sloping collector pipe is connected to fewer discharge stacks that subsequently use smaller pipes. When used together, Pluvia and Sovent can offer a space advantage of up to 63% more usable space. The self-cleaning pipes are quick and easy to install in all types of roofs, including green roofs, and can discharge up to 100l/s of rainwater per outlet.
Pluvia can be combined with Sovent, a space-saving, high-performance, single-stack drainage system. Using a patented branch inlet fitting, Sovent reduces fluctuations of pneumatic pressure inside stacks, preventing the siphonage of connected taps and offering a 30% increase in discharge capacity when compared with other fittings. The cost-effective fittings are ideal for applications in multi-storey buildings and manufactured from a durable high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic.
