Check any plumbing engineer’s desk and you’re likely to find several dogged-eared copies of Charlotte Pipe and Foundry dimensional catalogs. Equally as useful for plumbing contractors on the jobsite, these tried-and-true resources provide details that help ensure the pipe and fittings specified and installed meet the plumbing system’s requirements.

“Dimensional catalogs are probably the number one piece of literature we hand out and are essential resources for both plumbing engineers and plumbing contractors for two main reasons,” said Greg Nahrgang, vice president of technical services and product development at Charlotte Pipe and Foundry. “Obviously, the first is to verify the dimensions, including things like a pipe’s radius or diameter. The second is to see the breadth of our offerings and what fittings are available from Charlotte Pipe.”
