Cast Iron


Cast iron rainwater and soil systems are the logical choice for listed properties and conservations areas; the aesthetic appeal of cast iron satisfies all the requirements of heritage architectur

Premier rainwater systems are available in 3 different finishes; Premier grey primed, Premier Extra black gloss or Premier Extra coloured to match any RAL or BS reference. Most Premier standard rainwater products are now available in Premier Extra black gloss finish from stock. Premier Extra painted systems have been developed on behalf of specifiers and contractors looking for the benefits of time savings on site.

Cast iron soil system is a fit and forget solution and offers a modern alternative to traditional soil systems, especially for industrial and commercial buildings. The simple and reliable couplings make it particular suitable for repair and extension projects.

Cast Iron is a sustainable material. This means that after serving the needs of a building for its lifetime it can be fully recycled, not downcycled. Correctly installed cast iron systems can last in excess of 100 years with minimal maintenance requirements.


Mech 416 soil is a mechanically jointed range of socketless cast iron pipes and fittings in 50mm to 150mm diameters suitable for above ground soil and waste installations.

The system is manufactured to meet the standards of BS 416 (part 2), and is finished in a matt black two part epoxy coating.

Mechanically jointed systems provide all the benefits of a conventional BS416 socket and spigot cast iron soil system but also offer significant labour savings due to the efficient jointing techniques employed.

Halifax Soil is a comprehensive range of cast iron socketless pipes and fittings in 50mm to 300mm diameters suitable for above ground internal soil, waste and rainwater installations.

Pipes and fittings are finished in a long lasting protective red epoxy coating. The non-combustable and sound deadening properties of cast iron ensure fire safety and low noise levels in operation making it particularly suitable for internal soil systems.

Halifax Drain is a below ground socketless drainage system. It is fully compatible with the Halifax Soil system. The grey epoxy paint coating provides improved performance when exposed to high temperatures or aggressive substances.

The strength of cast iron combined with the renowned fit and forget properties make it the ideal material for below ground drainage installations. Cast Iron is highly resistant to distortion which offers low risk of settlement damage caused by ground movement and reduced risk of damage when de-blocking is required.
