The evolution of hot and cold water plumbing materials have been the result of demand for improvements in performance and ease of installation.
The plumbing industry has moved from lead to galvanised iron, then to copper. Iplex Pro-fit® Polybutylene is the move for the future.
Iplex Pro-fit® pipe is manufactured from Polybutylene and is joined together with a high integrity DR brass crimp fitting.
The Iplex Pro-fit® Polybutylene pipes and fittings system should be installed in accordance with the relevant requirements in AS/NZS 3500 part 1, 4 & 5. The system is intended for use by licensed plumbing tradesmen.
The Iplex Pro-fit® Polybutylene pipes and fittings system offers an integrated system that is flexible enough to be bent by hand, is extremely lightweight, corrosion resistant and eliminates water hammer noise. No brazing or soldering is necessary.
Installation of Iplex Pro-fit®
should be carried out by a qualified, licensed trades-person in accordance with Iplex Pro-fit®
Installation Guidelines. However, the installer should be aware of the requirements of the National Plumbing and Drainage Code (AS/NZS 3500 parts 1, 4 & 5) as well as Local Authority codes and by-laws that are relevant to plumbing which take precedence over these guidelines in any area where they are at variance.
One of the main advantages of the Pro-fit® system is its ability to absorb water hammer and flow noises.
An effective and secure jointing system is an integral feature of Iplex Pro-fit®, guaranteeing that the product is tamper proof and extremely quick to install.
Never before has there been a system that is easier to install.
