Integrated system for which it is typical that the hot water piping, insulation and jacket pipe form a unit.
The outer surface of the hot water pipe and the internal surface of the jacket are treated so as to be connected by insulating PUR foam which transfers forces onto the two parts.
Pipelines may be installed:
Under the ground (not in channels) in the HDPE jacket
Above the ground in the SPIRO jacket
The integrated system for up to 145 °C moves as a whole. Under the ground, it is limited by friction between the plastic pipe and the soil and above ground by the resistance of the supports. Expansion is absorbed by natural deviations or expansion joints.

When continuously thermally loaded at 150 °C, the life of the METALNET® system is 30 years supposing all the prescribed conditions for the mounting, positioning and operation of pre-insulated piping have been met.
