Pegler extends its range of tools to meet market demand for press-fit
Pegler Yorkshire’s Xpress Power Tools range offers a variety of tooling to support press-fit installations from 12mm to 168.3mm, as well as sprinkler systems. In addition, the range includes the popular combined package of AC0203 with 15mm to 35mm jaws in a single case.
Amy Sedgwick, Pegler Yorkshire’s market manager for press systems, says: “With over half the work carried out by heating engineers and contractors being on ‘live’ sites, press-fit jointing has become the preferred choice because of its safety credentials and ease of installation.
“With that in mind, it was a natural progression to provide our customers with not only the best press fittings on the market, but also the full range of tools to complete the job,” she adds.
The tools have been designed to be lighter and easier to handle. The range of tools incorporates an ‘X’ symbol, visible on the pressed fitting to provide an instant visual indication that the joint has been pressed.
