LPCB approval for pressfitting system

Geberit, PPCB fire sprinkler system

Geberit says that it has been awarded the first ever LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) approval for a pressfitting system for fire-protection systems. The approval covers all sizes of Mapress piping up to 108 mm and includes wet and dry sprinkler systems, re-action systems, low-pressure water spray and mist systems, foam water sprinkler systems, deluge systems, hydrant systems and extinguishing water pipes.

Mapress makes for fast installation, and its pressing indictor reveals visible leak paths to enable unpressed joints to be detected and fixed before the pressure test.
