Pegler Yorkshire, the leading UK manufacturer of VSH XPress fittings has expanded its range of tools to meet the demands of the marketplace.
The XPress Press Power Tools range offers a variety of tooling to support press-fit installations from 12mm to 168.3mm and sprinkler systems. In addition, the range includes the popular combined package of AC0203 with 15-35mm jaws in a single case.
Amy Sedgwick, Pegler Yorkshire’s Market Manager for Press Systems, commented: “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-fit fittings on the market but the full range of tools to complete the job too.”
The improved range of press tools provide greater performance whilst being lighter and easier to handle. Incorporating an ‘X’ symbol, visible on the pressed fitting, the range of tools provide an instant visual aid to indicate the joint has been pressed offering continual reassurance. The range includes a number of kitted options enabling complete sets of tools, jaws and slings to be ordered under just one product code.
In addition, the new tooling brochure is designed to showcase all XPress tools and accessories in one easy to use comprehensive guide. It also includes a tool compatibility table to easily identify the best tool for the job requirements and a full installation guide for all sizes from 12mm to 168.3mm.
