Multilayer press fittings equal tee SkinPress Water for water application
  • A range of brass fittings from 14 to 63 mm in diameter — to 32 mm only for the PPSU range
  • TH press profile
  • Immediate verification of correct pressing with the Visu-Control ring
  • O-rings are of top-quality EPDM

1 Visu-Control
Visual and tactile pressing indicator.
Allows the correct positioning of the pressing jaw.

2 Patented EPDM O-ring
Pressing profile designed specifically to avoid damaging or displacing the O-ring during connection.

3 Direct view of pipe
Visualisation windows show pipe insertion.

4 Brass tin-plating
Avoids corrosion risks in concealed installations.

5 Dielectric protection
The Visu-Control ring gives dielectric protection between the aluminium pipe layer and the brass.

 

SkinPress brass and PPSU press fitting benefits

  • Work in total safety: no flames, burns or fumes, no need to request fire permits.
  • Improved working conditions, thanks to lightweight pressing equipment.
  • SkinPress fitting design, focussed on quality, limits the risk of O-ring damage when the pipe is inserted.
  • Protective caps for large diameters (40, 50 and 63 mm) protect the interior of the fitting against dust, contamination and damage.
  • Visu-Control ring indicates that the fitting has been pressed correctly. The check windows allow you to see with the naked eye whether the pipe is correctly inserted.
  • The pressing tool is correctly and efficiently positioned through the Visu-Control ring.
  • Products designed to last with the use of stainless-steel casings and built-in dielectric protection that isolates the fitting from the pipe's aluminium layer.
