With the rapid growth of the Ryman retirement villages, PBPSA member company, Dux Industries Ltd is proud to have been an integral part of many of the villages built in New Zealand, including the Bert Sutcliffe village.
With the expert skills of John Ingleton and his team from IPL (Independent Plumbers Limited), they have installed the Dux SecuraGold fittings made from polybutene-1 and Dux PB1 piping into 12 Ryman retirement villages to date.
All future Ryman plumbing and piping by IPL will utilise the Dux Secura PB1 system.
Previously, Ryman villages used plumbing from an alternative system and material, however IPL quickly realised the quality, efficiency and extensive configuration options that could be achieved with the Dux PB1 piping system. All future Ryman villages receiving plumbing and piping by IPL will utilise the Dux Secura PB1 system.
IPL were one of the original users of the Dux Secura 12mm system and together with the Secura Manifold fitting, have provided residents with quick and efficient access to hot and cold water in their Ryman village homes. IPL have used a combination of Secura 12mm, 15mm & 20mm pipe and fittings within the Ryman village plumbing and piping system installations.
