Polyethylene Pressure Systems

JDP offers a full range of pipeline products for the potable, non potable water and gas markets.

As a market leader in the supply of polyethylene pipesystems JDP is one of the few distributors which can offer a fully comprehensive range of British and European specification pipe systems. Allied to this we are able to offer pipes in a range of SDR (Standard Dimensional Ratio) and pressure ratings. Often this leads to significant cost savings by manufacturing the pipe to the specific application.

Polyethylene is joined either by compression fittings or by heat welding. Fittings and equipment for Butt-fusion welding and Electrofusion welding are available for sale or hire from JDP's national branch distribution, see Electrofusion, Fabricated Fittings and Tooling & Equipment later in this section.
