Cast iron drainage pipe and fittings are proven to be reliable, durable and strong. They are safe, non-combustible, quiet and with minimal maintenance will last the life of a building. Cast iron is sustainable and can be fully recycled without any loss of its original properties.

Benefits of Cast Iron Soil Pipe systems

  • Quiet in operation – Intrinsic sound-deadening properties of cast iron reduce acoustic insulation costs
  • Fire resistant – As a material Cast Iron is non-combustible and has an A1 fire rating which reduces risk and removes the requirements for fire collars
  • The paint finish has been tested and proven to offer high performance when exposed to aggressive substances
  • Inherent strength and low maintenance requirements of cast iron combined with high quality surface coatings offer a fit and forget solution
  • Correctly installed and maintained cast iron pipe systems can last in excess of 100 years
  • Cost effective over the whole life of a building
  • Extremely low waste at end of life – scrap castings can be fully re-cycled
  • High pressure couplings designed for use in high-rise buildings
  • The system can be easily modified and adapt to changes to the building in later life with minimal extra cost which helps keep the whole life costs down

Paint Finish

The Hargreaves Cast Iron Halifax Soil system pipes are coated with a two part epoxy finish, red exterior and yellow interior, which provides improved performance when exposed to aggressive substances. The fittings are also epoxy coated in red. The pipes in this system are coated with an average of 40 microns externally and 130 microns internally.

Halifax Soil coatings have been tested successfully for resistance to attack by salt spray, waste water, hot water cycling and solution of acid at PH2 and alkalis at PH12.

Cast Iron Sustainability

Iron is the fourth most common element in the earth's crust. Cast iron can be fully recycled without any loss of its original properties, manufacturers use recycled scrap iron wherever possible. There is a well-established infrastructure for the recycling of scrap iron which means that cast iron products need never end up in landfill.
