Victaulic to showcase total solutions for pipe systems at Big 5 Saudi

Victaulic, a US-based company specialising in mechanical pipe joining systems, is set to exhibit its comprehensive solutions for piping and flow control systems at the Big 5 Construct Saudi exhibition which kicks off in Riyadh on February 26.
The largest construction event in the kingdom, Big 5 Construct Saudi will be back for its 12th edition at the Riyadh Front Exhibition and Conference Centre and will run until February 29 featuring more than 1,300 exhibitors from 40+ countries.
With Saudi Arabia experiencing a surge in construction across housing, infrastructure and tourism, Victaulic said it stands ready to offer seamless support throughout project lifecycles.
From design and engineering with 3D modelling and BIM compatibility, through efficient product delivery and installation training, to inspection and quality control services, Victaulic ensures consistent, reliable quality within strict project deadlines and budgets.
Novel solutions for high-rise construction
Given the notable rise in high-rise construction, particularly in Riyadh and Jeddah, Victaulic said it will feature its building riser solutions at its stand (3B121).
These solutions effectively accommodate thermal expansion and contraction while taking up as little room as possible, maximising sellable floorspace, it stated.
Victaulic’s grooved system eliminates bulky flanges or threaded pipe ends, while the flexibility in alignment reduces the need for space-consuming elbows and fittings, said its top official.
“Moving from welds to mechanical pipe couplings is a century-old ‘new idea’ that brings the benefits of fast, reliable, and flexible installation to construction projects worldwide,” remarked Zeyd Ammoura, the Division Manager for Middle East, Africa and Turkey at Victaulic.
“Victaulic is excited to discuss with both current and potential new customers at Big 5 Saudi Construct how this innovation can contribute to the success of projects in Saudi Arabia, ensuring they are completed on time, within budget, and with high quality,” he noted.
Victaulic components preassembled to a pump and delivered on a skid as a module to lift into place.
Prefabricated modules for faster installation
The US group said its stand will also showcase a prefab skid display, highlighting how components can be prefabricated and delivered to construction sites as ready-to-install modular units.
This approach accelerates the installation of pipe systems, especially in complex environments like high-rise buildings, and is highly beneficial considering the pressing timelines associated with Saudi Arabia’s current surge in construction projects, it stated.
Ammoura said pipes can be pre-cut, grooved and joined with Victaulic couplings in a controlled factory environment and delivered to site in a planned sequence, optimising material handling and storage requirements.
“Components can also be pre-assembled into larger sections or even entire riser systems off-site, minimising the number of individual connections to be made on-site and, therefore, labour requirements and installation time,” he stated.
“Furthermore, prefabrication and modularisation reduce the risk of errors and rework on-site, which can lead to delays and unexpected costs,” he added.
