The Unisaddle FA150U, a new lateral connection product made by Flexseal, has received WRc approval.
The Unisaddle is designed to connect DN150 lateral pipes into a concrete or clay pipeline. Flexseal claim the product is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ connection when combined with a Flexseal Mulitbush, as a secure connection can be made between any DN150 lateral pipe material and any concrete or clay pipe from DN300 and above, providing the wall thickness of the larger pipe is a minimum or 27.5mm.
“This is the most universal lateral connection ever launched by Flexseal and we’re proud to have the product outperform all of the strict testing criteria set out by WRc. We always develop products with customers in mind and endeavour to solve real site issues; having WRc’s backing will hopefully go a long way to reassuring those customers that the Unisaddle is a reliable option and that the Flexseal brand is one that contractors and merchants can trust” stated Ben Beatson, Product Development Manager for Flexseal.
The WRc Approved™ scheme is recognised and established within the construction industry; and sets out to provide suppliers, buyers and end-users confidence that the products are fit for purpose. The scheme is designed to reduce risks in procurement by assuring quality, performance and installation processes have been tested with the most stringent of requirements.
“We’ve always had confidence that our lateral connection range carries additional benefits when compared with fabricated junctions but having a WRc Approved™ range reassures our customer base that we have a solution that is proven to work. The Unisaddle FA150U will form part of an integral portfolio of products that can add significant value to all levels of our customer base.” commented Scott McMurray, Flexseal’s Sales Director.
