Sanivar products began development in Switzerland in the 1970s, in response to the need for robust repair products for pipelines carrying dry gas. Since then, Sanivar has innovated and expanded to produce high quality, Swiss-manufactured, PE-coated textile liners that will rehabilitate pipes thatcarry not just gas, but also potable water, petrochemicals, industrial water, drainage and sewage.

The Sanivar product range is approved for potable water use throughout Europe and in many countries worldwide. The products have WRAS approval in the UK and are currently undergoing testing for Regulation 31 potable water usage. This will enable Sanivar products to be used to help reduce the UK's water leakage levels by providing quick, cost-effective trenchless repairs. 

Danaher & Walsh APS has been appointed Approved Sanivar Product Installer in the UK, having undergone comprehensive product installation and technical training. With over one million metres of Sanivar products successfully installed worldwide, Danaher & Walsh APS is now offering guaranteed installations in the UK across a range of applications.

Speaking about the new partnership with Danaher & Walsh APS, Sanivar UK Managing Director David Ripley commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Danaher & Walsh APS.

“The company is passionate about embracing the latest in trenchless technology and quickly recognised the huge potential of the Sanivar range.

“They are an extremely competent and professional contractor with a huge amount of knowledge and experience. Most importantly, they are absolutely committed to providing a high-level of customer service.

“Any product is only as good as its installation, so it is critical for us to only work with companies we have confidence in. Because of their experience and track record in this industry, we felt Danaher & Walsh APS met that requirement perfectly.”

Speaking about gaining Approved Sanivar Product Installer status, Danaher & Walsh APS’ Contracts Manager Paul Cleaver said: “We’re very excited to be working closely with Sanivar to introduce these fantastic products to the UK market.

“We’re very impressed by the quality and versatility of the Sanivar products and see them as an important part of our offering. As well as being extremely high quality, good value and quick to install, they are suitable for a huge range of applications.

“The Sanivar products are used extensively throughout Europe, some projects which we have witnessed first-hand and we feel their introduction to the UK market will be a game-changer for pipe rehabilitation here and we are very excited to be a part of that from an early stage.”
