Jointing techniques

There are a variety of copper and brass fittings for use with copper pipework.  It is important to select the correct fitting for the pipework application and the situation. You will know that some work sites have restrictions on the use of flames - for these situations you can select one of the heat-free jointing options.

Capillary soldering and compression jointing systems have been continuously developed and improved for over fifty years to the point where they are, in the hands of the competent, professional installer, utterly reliable.

Brazing is similar to capillary soldering and has been around for many years.  This jointing technique is employed when the system operating temperatures and pressures are high.

With modern construction techniques and site safety requirements, copper press and push-fit fittings provide fast and efficient jointing techniques that will result in reliable copper installations.  Both types of fittings offer flame-free jointing, ideal for the installation of copper building services with fast-track building systems.
