TracPipe ® - a flexible gas pipe made from stainless steel. It is semi rigid and can be used for natural gas, propane gas or butane gas. It is manufactured by Omegaflex to British Standard 7838 and designed to replace traditional copper gas pipe in the UK.
TracPipe is suitable for new buildings, domestic installations, and commercial premises. It is flexible, bends by hand, needs little joining, reduces installation time. TracPipe gas pipe requires no joints in long runs - there is no threading, welding or soldering needed. As a result, this eliminates the number of potential gas pipe leaks.
TracPipe is in use for gas pipe systems in houses, flats and apartments, as well as schools, hospitals, commercial, and industrial buildings. It is available in sevennominal bore sizes: DN 12, 15, 22, 28, 32, 40, and 50, and can be easily terminated with male BSP fittings.
Gas pipe installations that use TracPipe can be in awkward, enclosed spaces and voids where a traditional copper gas pipe may be difficult to install. TracPipe is a less disruptive installation. For projects where copper pipe may need to run along the outside of a building, TracPipe can be fed through walls, under floors and in trenches both inside and outside buildings, in both domestic and commercial projects, subject building reg requirements.
TracPipe Boiler Replacement Kits are ideal for replacing undersized or damaged existing gas lines in domestic housing.

It provides a viable alternative to copper and steel rigid gas pipework, and is attractive to UK installers, as it is easy to work with and it saves on installation time.
