To date, it has only been possible to use Rockwool pipe shell RS 800 to thermally insulate TECE's multi-layer composite pipes. Following intensive fire resistance tests the Civil Engineering Materials Testing Institute (MPA) based in Braunschweig, Germany, issued a general building code test certificate (AbP), which means the pipe shell can now also be used as pipe penetration seals R30 to R120 for TECEflex and TECElogo composite pipes. Professional installers no longer need to change materials at the wall and ceiling openings. That saves time and money.
Many bathroom owners appreciate the effect of toilet cleaning tabs that dissolve in the cistern and clean the toilet ceramics with every flush. For concealed cisterns, TECE is now offering a simple tab insert solution that is universal for its cisterns, and can be retrofitted.
Thomas Fehlings is deceased
The founder, owner and chief executive of the German TECE-Group, Thomas Fehlings, has passed away after a short, severe illness. He had established the company together with his father Gerd Fehlings in 1987. Under Fehlings guidance TECE developed rapidly from its modest beginnings into a pioneer of house technology. Through 25 years of practice the company has become an internationally operating group focusing in pipe systems, flushing technology, front wall systems, drains and separation technology. Fehlings was known for his dedication and commitment to the fast growing company and its 1.300 employees working in five production locations around the globe.
An exemplary stadium
State of the art technology for sports events, concerts or trade fairs: The EmslandArena in Lingen, near the Dutch border. This multifunctional stadium not only has the potential to increase the awareness of the rural Emsland region, the municipality has also set a clear signal in terms of sustainability, accessibility and fire protection. Pre-wall and flushing technology in the EmslandArena is from TECE.
