A product, sold across the world and dominates the US gas pipe market is making life easier – and more profitable – for installers here in the UK.

Arguably one of the best-kept secrets in the UK heating industry has to be TracPipe®– the stainless steel semi-rigid gas piping system that’s quickly becoming the recognised alternative to traditional rigid copper or steel pipework installed between the meter and an appliance. While relatively new to the European market, stainless steel semi-rigid gas piping has a 30-year installation history, initially in Japan and then in North America, where the product has captured more than 50% of the US gas pipe market, with a very sound safety record. Here in the UK, TracPipe semi-rigid gas piping is quickly winning friends as a viable alternative to copper and steel rigid gas pipework, but what really seems to attract UK installers is how easy it is to work with and how much time it saves on an installation.
