Chrome Style Waste Straight Coupling - 32mm
|Guarantee||2 Year Manufacturer|
|Specification||BS EN 1451-1:2000/BS 5254 1976|
Chrome style couplings are used to join two lengths of pipe. This type of system uses a screw down compression ring seal to make a watertight joint between the pipe and the fitting.
This fitting is available in 32mm and 40mm size options. The system is manufactured in the UK using state of the art technology to ensure a superb, blemish-free chrome effect finish.
This chrome style compression waste system is manufactured in the UK to BS EN 1451. It is commonly used to connect waste pipes of differing materials or those made by different manufacturers.
When making a compression joint, cut the pipe square and remove any burrs. Unscrew the nut from the fitting and remove it along with the washer and the rubber seal. Place these three components over the end of the pipe – first the nut, then the washer followed by the seal. The dished side of the rubber seal should face away from the nut and towards the fitting. Push the pipe into the fitting as far as it will go, slide the seal and washer forward into position in the fitting and tighten the nut.
The joint can be taken apart again if required, but always check that the rubber seal has not been damaged in any way as this will cause the joint to leak.
Chrome Style Multifit Compression waste Fittings
Chrome Style multifit compression waste fittings are ideal for use when connecting different waste pipe systems together or when the installation is in plain view, such as in a public bathroom or hotel room.
In compression waste systems the joints are not permanent, they can be demounted and re-made if necessary.
The watertight seal in chrome style compression waste systems is created by a large, dished rubber seal and a nylon washer. When the nut on the fitting is tightened, the seal is compressed on to the pipe in much the same way as a copper olive works in plumbing fittings.
Our chrome style multifit compression fittings are made from polypropylene. They are manufactured in the UK by FloPlast, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of all types of gutter, soil, waste and underground drainage products.
