KAN‑therm ultraPRESS LBP fittings are versatile and so they can connect different types of pipes, i.e. PEXC, PERT and PERTAL. This unique feature makes sure that the final solution can be configured as desired.
Construction material and the method of making the pipe and fitting connection make it possible to lay the installation in System KAN‑therm ultraPRESS in layers of structural partitions (in flooring finishing coats and under layers of plaster) without any limitations.
Each KAN-therm ultraPRESS fitting is equipped with a special plastic ring, the color of which depends on the diameter of the pipe being connected.
All KAN‑therm ultraPRESS fittings in the 16-32 mm diameter range have the unique LBP design – „Leak Before Press” – an badly- executed joints are signaled by a water leak at the stage of preliminary non-pressurized installation filling, before the pressure test. This function complies with DVGW guidelines (“controlled leak”).
