MULTI/JOINT® in a German newspaper building

From Asia, to America and Europe, our
MULTI/JOINT® fittings are literally used
all over the world! This time a small peek
into how the MULTI/JOINT® was used at
the Saarbrücker Zeitung.
The Saarbrücker Zeitung
In 2017, GF was contracted to renovate the
industrial water supply pipeline at the
Saarbrücker Zeitung, a German newspaper. This
newspaper covers the area of Saarland, a
province in Germany with more than a million
inhabitants. At the Saarbrücker Zeitung, old steel
piping materials with brass welded fittings were
used, causing leaks and problems in the fitting

Using a HDPE pipe, GF installed a main pipeline
of d225 mm and a branch-off of d160 mm. In
addition, the MULTI/JOINT® 3000 Plus flange
adaptors were used for the connection to the old
steel pipeline. This way, the water supply was
secured and news of the Saarbrücker Zeitung can
keep flowing into Saarland!
