The SANIT pipes and connectors correspond to the regulations of DIN EN 1 2056 in connection with DIN 1 986-100 and DIN EN 752.
This leads to different product names of these articles. So far, the nominal diameter DN referred to the inner pipe diameter.
SANIT denominates its articles according to the EN standard from 2006 on. The nominal diameter DN refers then approximately to the outer diameter of the pipes and connectors.
Please take note of these changes in the product groups connectors, concealed installations and drainage systems.

Thread designations

M – ISO metric thread according to DIN 13

G – thread in inches according to DIN EN ISO 228

R – male pipe thread (conical) according to DIN EN 10226

REACH: Information on lead-containing brass components

The regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and the Council of 18 December 2006 for the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals, REACH, determines the "Identification of a substance of very high concern, SVHC2, and its inclusion in the list of candidates, triggers a formal obligation to inform for importers, manufacturers and suppliers of a product containing such substance in concentrations of  > 0.1%.

As a manufacturer of products within the meaning of the a.m. regulation we are a downstream user. These products are not subject to registration. We do not produce chemicals (substances) or preparations or import the same in the EU. Information on ingredients of primary and auxiliary products is based on our suppliers’ data. We attach importance to trustful supplier relations being essential to make sure that the European REACH legislation is adhered to along the entire chain of suppliers.

On 27 June 2018 lead, EC No. 231-100-4 was included in the SVHC list of candidates under the No. CAS 7439-92-1.

The materials brass and red brass typically contain more than 0.1% lead. Therefore, we inform industrial or other professional users and traders on this fact.

Enclosed please find a summary of the products and the relevant lead content of the same.

Brass is used in connectors for urinal shells and concealed cisterns, connecting nipples for filling valves and drain valves as well as small parts in drain sets for sinks, wash basins and tubs. Responsible action within the sense of our environmental awareness has resulted in a substantial reduction of non-ferrous metal consumption for our products in recent years. Where inevitable the lead content of the components was significantly reduced. The use of so-called lead-free brass, Pbf3, made it possible to do without lead almost completely.  

Due to the fact that lead as alloy component is chemically bound and thus no exposure can be expected, no additional information on safe use is required.

In addition to that no labelling on the product is required, i.e. no reference as to a SVHC substance is needed.

The use of brass components for gas and drinking water piping remains unchanged. A list of approved brass alloys for fittings and metal components in drinking water distributors can be gathered from the UBA website at:

We use no other than these approved brass alloys.
