Cast iron microsite

Posted: Wednesday 11th August 2010

Leading iron technology solutions provider, Saint-Gobain PAM UK, has launched a new dedicated microsite which gives visitors the chance to compare the features and benefits of cast iron and its new push-fit drainage system ‘EEZ-FIT’ against some other materials.

The site at compares three main materials used in above ground drainage – cast iron, HDPE and stainless steel – in categories such as product life and sustainability.

It also looks at factors including fire resistance, acoustic performance, and ease of installation – all areas where comparisons have been made at independent laboratories, which have subsequently highlighted the benefits of cast iron systems over the alternatives.

Mike Rawlings of Saint-Gobain PAM UK commented: “Specification of pipes for above ground drainage systems is becoming increasingly far more than just the initial purchase cost of the product. Expected longevity of the products in service life, as well as performance, safety and environmental impact, all have a growing influence on specifiers, installers and end users when making their decision. provides a quick and easy source of information for anyone needing to understand the added value of cast iron EEZI-FIT in order to make an informed choice before specifying above ground drainage systems.”
