  • Can the PLT BD CONNECT pipe be used to cross a cellar?
    Yes. If the cellar is ventilated, BD CONNECT PLT pipes and fittings can be used without a sleeve. On the other hand, if it is not ventilated, only the pipe is authorized but under a sheath.
  • Is passage through the slab authorized for the PLT BD CONNECT pipe?
    Yes, but only in a sheath.
  • Can you cross a wall with the PLT BD CONNECT pipe?
    Yes. The crossing of the walls comprising a hollow space can only be done under a sheath left free at at least one end, or else by filling the hollow space around the pipe with an inert material. Note that in the case of solid walls, sheathing is not mandatory.
  • Can BD CONNECT PLT pipe be used to cross a crawl space?
    Yes. If the crawl space is ventilated and accessible, the PLT BD CONNECT pipe can be installed without a sleeve. Conversely, the sheath is mandatory and must lead either to the open air or to a space allowing ventilation. In both cases, mechanical connections are prohibited.
  • For which types of installation is the use of the PLT BD CONNECT valid?
    The BD CONNECT PLT kit is authorized for new installations, renovations to replace existing installations and for extensions on site.
  • Can the PLT BD CONNECT kit be buried?
    Yes. BD CONNECT PLT pipes can also be used for buried or built-in installation sections. BD CONNECT underground PLT kits must be placed under ducts. The use of couplings or mechanical joints on the route of the buried sections is strictly prohibited. In addition, a yellow warning device must be placed about 20 cm above the buried pipe.
  • What do we mean by "sheath"?
    The ducts are made of rigid or flexible metal tubes, rigid or flexible plastic sheaths or concrete, sandstone or fiber cement pipes.
  • Can the BD CONNECT PLT pipe be incorporated into a partition?
    Yes, but several conditions must be met. The PLT BD CONNECT pipe must be placed in a metal sheath, one end of which results in a ventilated place. Incorporation can only be done vertically, that is to say, perpendicular to the ground.
  • Can you cross a false ceiling with the PLT BD CONNECT pipe?
    Yes. The false ceiling must be accessible and ventilated for the PLT BD CONNECT pipe to be installed without a sleeve. Otherwise, the use of a sealed metal sheath free at one of its two ends is mandatory. Fittings are strictly prohibited.
  • What tools are needed to properly size BD CONNECT PLT pipes?
    Charts for sizing pipes which include the length and the powers to be supplied are available in the installation guide (pages 19 to 22) and will allow you to size your installation quickly and easily.
  • What type of sheath should be used to protect the BD CONNECT pipe in a slab after incorporation?
    According to EN 61386-22, the use of a 750 Newton sheath is recommended.
  • Are there earth clamps for the PLT?
    Yes, the BD CONNECT PLT kit has two references for grounding clamps. The 0050420 (from DN15 to DN25) and the 0050432 (from DN32 to DN50).
  • How do you bend the BD CONNECT PLT?
    The bending of the BD CONNECT PLT pipe is done manually and must comply with the minimum radii recommended in the BD CONNECT installation guide (page 13), in order to minimize installation pressure drops.< /p>
  • What are the rules for fixing the PLT BD CONNECT pipe?
    It must be fixed using sound collars. It is necessary to respect the maximum spacing of 1.5m in the horizontal part and 3m in the vertical part.
  • Do I have to use special tools to install the BD CONNECT PLT?
    No. However, for an efficient and safe installation, you need a pipe cutter to cut the BD CONNECT pipe, two spanners of the appropriate size to tighten the fittings, as well as a sharp object such as a knife to remove the outer sheath.< /p>
  • Can the BD CONNECT PLT hose be assembled with fittings from another range/manufacturer?
    No, PLT systems are not compatible with each other. BD CONNECT PLT fittings must therefore be assembled ONLY with BD CONNECT PLT pipes and vice versa.
  • Is it mandatory to use self-vulcanizing tape to cover the gap between the fitting and the pipe?
    Yes, it is imperative according to the regulations, because it protects against corrosion, the fittings and the bare part of the pipe of the PLT BD CONNECT pipe. It is still necessary to carry out the leak test before installing the self-adhesive protective strip, as it could mask a leak in the event of an assembly defect.
  • Can a connection be directly welded/brazed on the PLT BD CONNECT pipe?
    No, the connection of the PLT BD CONNECT pipe must be made exclusively using a fitting from the PLT BD CONNECT kit.
