Saint-Gobain’s Ensign Systems consist of pipes and fittings from 50-600mm dia on above ground applications and 100, 150-600mm dia on below ground applications.
Ensign can be connected by cast iron mechanical joints or push-fit joints, for below and above ground applications. Ensign allows for total interchangeability, ensuring Ensign is the most versatile cast iron system on the market.
Independent research for on-site measurement studies to BS 3138, resulted in the calculation of labour constants for the BS EN 877 systems, like Ensign, being considerably lower to those quoted for many years in the price guides.
These labour constants are reflected in the leading price guides (Spons, Griffiths etc), identifying the fact that it is quicker to install cast iron systems than UPVC solvent weld systems, this fact is confirmed in the labour hours/charge calculations.
With additional savings on fire collars, sound insulation, bracketing, expansion joints, on-site damage and the longevity of the system, cast iron has never been so competitive against lesser materials - 'cutting the price of quality'.
