  • Hugely reduced scope for installation failure
  • No risk of system failure due to over/under heating the joint
  • Risk of installation being contaminated with non compliant product, is eliminated
  • Fastest installation, reduced skills level for competent installation
  • This is the only piping system where you can easily visually check if the joint has been correctly done or not.
  • Fewer joints (cost saving), faster installation (cost saving)
  • Reduced opportunity for leaks
  • Easy to transport (labour cost effective)
  • Fewer elbows (cost saving), reduced pressure loss, reduced chance of kinking
  • Kinks are quickly and easily 100% self healed with the application of heat, thus ensuring long runs maintain their integrity.
  • Naturally more energy efficient
  • Can be conduited, thus enabling damaged pipe to be replaced without having to chase holes eg. To repair hole drilled into pipe.
  • With the application of heat, Pex-A can be bent into shapes, which hold their form when the pipe is cooled.
  • Enable serviceable installations with conduits. Provide single access point for single quality isolating valve.
  • We are all about sustainable use of resources. Our latest product, Aqua Blue, has a reduced CO2 footprint of up to 90% compared to fossil based pex pipes on the market.

Quick & Easy Jointing Technology

The Q&E fitting is a jointing concept that relies on the unique elastic features of PEX-A pipe to create a joint that is stronger than the pipe itself. The unique shape memory of PEX-A piping forms a tight seal around the fitting creating a strong reliable connection within seconds.

  • 16 to 75mm
  • In high performance PPSU and threaded Dr brass
  • Intended for tap water systems with a continuous operating temperature of maximum 70 °C (instantaneous maximum 95 °C). Operating pressure maximum 10 bar (1 MPa)
