Cast Iron Pipe and Fittings -
Each year Charlotte Pipe uses more than 350 million pounds of scrap iron and steel to manufacture cast iron pipe and fittings. In fact, Charlotte Pipe's cast iron products are made from a minimum of 96 percent recycled content and are 100 percent recyclable.
This has been confirmed by the ICC Evaluation Service, LLC (ICC-ES) SAVE program, which provides manufacturers with verification that their products meet specific sustainability targets defined by today's codes, standards, and green rating systems.
Cast iron plumbing systems have other environmental benefits, too. For underground installation cast iron piping can handle earth load with no deflection. This means there is less digging on the front end and a trench can be as narrow as an installer decides.
Cast iron also positively impacts indoor environmental quality (IEQ). It is twice as quiet as an all-plastic system, eliminating the sound of water running down the wall from upstairs fixtures. This unique acoustic feature is the basis of Quiet House®, an exclusive system to Charlotte Pipe.
