Tough new regulations which came into force in France in January 2023 stipulate that valves controlling the backflow of pollution in water pipes serving sensitive buildings, such as healthcare facilities, must be accessible, easy to dismantle and inspected at least once a year.

We are innovating constantly to ensure our solutions meet any new standards coming into force. Our French business has been developing regulation-compliant solutions in the healthcare sector for over 60 years.

When the new regulations were unveiled in 2021, we went to work immediately to create a solution and have devised a valve which meets the new regulations head on.

In addition, the valve is made from C-PVC and therefore resistant to the build-up of limescale, is free from corrosion and limits the development of biofilm, all essential in buildings where maintaining water quality is essential.

The new valve won the innovation award at the Hopitech 2023 Hospital Engineers Congress held in Toulouse in March.

Increasingly, we see healthcare as an important market to serve with solutions that guarantee water supplied to medical centres remains safe, secure and free from the threat of infection.
