The Tectite range of fittings from Pegler Yorkshire now includes Tectite Chrome which provides the quality and ease of a metal push-fit fitting whilst addressing the key issue of aesthetics.
Tectite Chrome is a metal-push fit fitting which offers the ability to install without a hot works permit and therefore avoiding associated administration costs. Fewer specialist tools are required and time on labour is saved as there is no longer a requirement to stay on site for up to two hours following the use of heat as a precautionary measure to guard against fire.
The range is suitable for jointing with plain and chrome plated copper tube to BS EN 1057, PEX, including Tectite Flexible Metal Tube and PB plastic pipes to BS 7291. Additional features include fixed and demountable options in sizes 10 to 22mm.
However, being chrome, it is ideal for use on an exposed system without it looking out of place and negates the need to use bulky compression fittings.
Phill Jackson, marketing and business development director for Pegler Yorkshire said: “Tectite Chrome, part of the Tectite Classic and Sprint ranges, will look great in any exposed system while offering the performance of a metal fitting, flexibility of use with a variety of pipe materials and the ease of push-fit jointing.”
