(Valley Forge, Pa., Tradeslive.com) – CertainTeed customers now have quick and easy access to comprehensive information on the company’s pipe products with the CertainTeed PVC Pipe Product Resources CD. The new CD helps contractors and engineers select the best type of
pipe for proposed applications as well as the right pipe size to accommodate the maximum anticipated flow rate.
“The CertainTeed PVC Pipe Product Resource CD provides the vast majority of information engineers and contractors need for the pipe specification and selection process,” says John Coogan, marketing and business development manager for CertainTeed’s Pipe Group. “Instead of requiring a visit to our website to use project analysis tools and track down relevant product information, the CD puts all of this content immediately at our customers’ fingertips, with or without an Internet connection.
Presented in a format that mimics the CertainTeed website, the information on the CD includes digital brochures, product and engineering specification sheets, instructional videos, case studies and published articles concerning actual applications of CertainTeed Certa-Lok™ and other PVC pipe products, such as C900 RJ™, CertaFlo, Certa-Com™, Yelomine™, and CertaSet™.
Customers can also use the tool to search products by application, such as “Municipal-Trenchless,” “Municipal-Open Trench,” and “Ag Irrigation.” This feature connects the customer with the pipe product that is best suited for a given application. For example, C900/RJ and Yelomine are appropriate choices for both trenchless and open-trench municipal water and sewer projects, as their quick and easy assembly allows faster installation and less disturbance to the surrounding area than fused pipe.
Customers have the option of accessing information directly from the PVC Pipe Product Resource CD or installing the CD’s information onto their computers as a desktop application for more convenient and user-friendly interaction. If installed as a desktop application, users can also receive updates to the program when an Internet connection is available by clicking its “Check for Updates” button. For information about how to obtain a copy of the PVC Pipe Product Resource CD, contact your regional CertainTeed Pipe sales representative or call 866-CT4-PIPE.
