Landmark for Viega Sanpress

Viega

Viega has supplied its cold applied Profipress and Sanpress Inox press connection systems to the latest refurbishment of the 17th Century Queen’s House in Greenwich.

As a result of the restrictions on hot works, press connection technology was the chosen methodology for the pipe installation. Viega’s Profipress system was selected for use on the copper heating and water pipework while the stainless steel greywater pipe was connected with Sanpress Inox fittings. Due to the priceless artwork housed within the Queen’s House, the security of the connections was paramount to ensure no leakage.

Mechanical and electrical maintenance specialist Red100 carried out the work. Stephen Phillips, director at Red100 says: “We were familiar with press connection technology, having employed it on a number of similar projects. We had been recommended the Viega systems and were impressed by what we saw when we visited Viega’s production facilities in Germany.”
