Installation & Testing
The recommended maximum support spacing of Iplex Wavin HDPE pipe is dependent on the maximum temperature likely to be experienced by the pipe material in the specific application.
In applications where Wavin HDPE pipe is installed either within a building, or outside a building but out of direct sunlight and therefore unlikely to be subject to pipe material temperatures greater than 60°C, the pipework shall be supported at spacing not exceeding those detailed in Table 5.5
In applications where the pipework conveys hot fluids (e.g. from dishwashers, autoclaves, knife sterilizers) or is located either outside of the building in direct sunlight or in a roof plenum space where the pipe material temperature is likely to exceed 60°C , the recommended maximum support spacing is reduced by 50%.
Pipework is to be supported at or adjacent to every bend, including fittings where pipelines emerge from a wall.
