Pegler Yorkshire introduces the XPress sprinkler system to the UK

The Pegler Yorkshire brand is synonymous with quality, so the addition of a sprinkler system to the XPress range is set to be welcomed by those who have come to rely on this premier fittings manufacturer’s reputation for excellence.

The XPress sprinkler range benefits from accreditations from the LPCB class LH to OH3 and also the Fire Protection Association endorsement for the complete system.

The system incorporates a wide range of fittings, tube and press tools, designed for specific use in sprinkler applications.

Galvanized carbon tube is designed for wet sprinkler systems and stainless steel tube is suitable for wet and dry pipe systems under FM and VdS approval. The products are available in sizes from 22-108mm and 6 metre lengths of tube.  The LPCB approval allows for use in wet pipe systems 22-54mm, for hazard classes Light and Ordinary Hazard.

“The XPress concept has proved itself on site time and again and given the number of requests for a sprinkler system, this move is a natural progression for the XPress range,” said Pegler Yorkshire fittings Product Manager Kathleen Bramwell. “The benefits of XPress tube and fittings have proved popular with installers for being lightweight, reliable and easy to use, so we are expecting a lot of interest in this latest addition to the product portfolio.”

The XPress sprinkler system has many advantages for the installer and end user. For the installer, XPress is light, quick and easy to fit and aesthetically pleasing.  On installing there is no oil, grease, swirls as with screwed connections.  Compared to other types of pipe there is no cementing required, thus no curing time, unfavourable odours or fumes.  XPress can be air tested without delay and be used fully exposed.

As a press-fit system XPress also does away with the need for a hot works permit on site and the integrity of the joint is always ensured thanks to the latest jointing technology.  The innovative ‘leak before press’ system ensures that any fittings that have been mistakenly left unpressed will be immediately identified at the commissioning stage.  Once correctly pressed, XPress sprinkler is guaranteed to be water tight up to 16 bar operating pressure, while tested up to 64 bar.

“XPress sprinkler is a cost effective solution and brings real efficiency to the sprinkler market,” added Kathleen. “It’s perfect for retrofit and renovation projects, where a system needs to be installed quickly to ensure safety, but must deliver quality and aesthetic qualities along with it. The installation method also means the bare minimum of disturbance for a building’s users – XPress sprinkler offers a fast, clean installation - particularly important if the public are on site while the work takes place.”

The XPress sprinkler system is already a well established product in the demanding European market and is sure to be similarly accepted in the UK. All fittings and tubes are already stocked by Pegler Yorkshire in the UK.

This new system is backed by the comprehensive product guarantee installers have come to expect from Pegler Yorkshire and a wealth of UK and international approvals, including LPCB, VdS, and FM. The XPress sprinkler system delivers safety, coupled with fast, clean and efficient heat-free jointing and is available to from national distributors now.
