Geberit Mapress is an efficient, gas safe pipework solution.
Press fitting is becoming an increasingly popular option for gas installation, not least because it offers a safe, reliable and efficient method of connecting pipework.
Approved for use the BSi, Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel and Copper gas fittings can be used for gas applications, following the manufacturer’s instructions, offering a no-fuss alternative to soldering while always giving safety top priority.
Geberit Mapress Copper Gas and Mapress Stainless Steel Gas have all the necessary approvals for natural, liquefied and technical gases for industrial applications. Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel Gas is available in sizes 15-108 mm, is HTB approved (PHTB, max = 5 bar) and can be laid on or concealed in a wall. Geberit Mapress Copper Gas is available for gas installations in sizes 15-54mm and both metals are marked in yellow for ease of identification.
A yellow seal ring made of hydrogenated acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (HNBR) ensures reliable sealing.
Before installation the fittings are protected with a yellow protective plug and the Geberit pressing indicator also ensures additional safety on the Geberit Mapress Gas fitting. The only tools required to form a safe, reliable connection are a cutter, deburrer, insertion depth marker and pressing, because the fittins are pressed on to the tube, without the need for any soldering or adhesives.
Unpressed joints are easily detectable by the pressing indicator which consists of a thin plastic foil encasing the pressing shoulder which is removed after the press to reveal a visible indication of a pressed joint. This offers a strong defence against installation errors.
Due to the deformation of the pipe and fitting, press fit connections cannot be undone or tampered with, thus providing complete peace of mind, particularly important with gas installations where leaks cannot be visibly detected and fixing them can be time consuming and costly. The absence of a working flame also minimises the risk of damage to existing fittings and fixtures, making it particularly suitable for refurbishment projects and installing gas supply lines in domestic situations.
