Equator | PEX Hot and Cold Water Plumbing

  • PDF

Equator is the ideal choice for hot and cold water plumbing applications. Manufactured from a high engineering grade plastic, Cross linked Polyethylene (PEX), Equator offers excellent performance capabilities, and its benefits, both practical and financial, present a real alternative to copper.

A grip release mechanism enables any initial first fixes to be disassembled using a unique demounting tool. This makes Equator a truly re-usable fitting, yet provides peace of mind that only through use of the demounting tool can the system be taken apart.

Whether you are involved in designing plumbing layouts for domestic houses or light commercial developments, Equator is the ideal choice for hot and cold water applications.
