At PM we feel responsible for our sales partners, installers who use our products, people who live in the buildings where our products are installed and the environment in which we live.
For this reason, we purchase raw materials from the most qualified European manufacturers and submit them to stringent quality controls; we design and manufacture 100% recyclable and highly safe products: not only do they meet REACH standards, but they are free of all those substances that may be banned in the future (listed in the Candidate List); we offer eco-compatible products in line with the latest bio-construction principles.
In PM, we strive to offer our clients products at the forefront of technology, always matching the newest and most strict security standards. PM “Low Smoke Flame Resistant Zero Halogen” pipes ensure people safety and equipment protection in case of fire.
PM pipes with “Low Smoke Flame Resistant Zero Halogen” logo are compliant with the international standards IEC 61034-2, IEC 60754-1 and IEC 60754-2.
“Low Smoke”= minimum opaque smoke emission, so that escape routes remain visible, permitting fast rescues.
“Flame Resistant”= prevents flame propagating.
“Zero Halogen”= minimum halogen content. The quantity of halogenidric acids inside smokes is below 0,5%. Thanks to the introduction of the innovative FLEXHiSpeedTM Ultra and FLEXLubTM Ultra, PM has completed its offer with the “Halogen Free” pipes, the ultimate frontier of safety, compliant with the DIN VDE V 0604 – 2 – 100 norm. In case of fire, smokes are almost exempt from halogen: the content of each halogen, in fact, is below 0,1%.
LSZH pipes are recommended for buildings intended to host a large number of people
LSF0H pipes are manufactured with special eco-compatible plastic polymers that grant higher resistance than PVC pipes and permit their safe and long-lasting use in any type of system. Compared to PVC pipes, PM LSF0H pipes are:
PM LSF0H pipes are ideal for any type of system and are the only ones recommended and guaranteed by PM for the use in liquid screed and concrete.

The entire range of PM PVC pipes is produced with new “green” formulas created by PM laboratories. The new formulas do not use stabilisers or additives derived from heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury and chrome; they are 100% free of colorants harmful to humans or the environment and they are free of all the substances listed in the REACH Candidate List such as DEHP, BBP, DBP and DIBP plasticisers.
