Press for success

We asked Noel Conroy – Sale Manager of Sanbra Fyffe – why The Instantor-Press® System has become the multilayer press-fit system of choice?

The reasons are clear – since we launched The Instantor-Press® System, it has become both the specification engineers’ and Installers’ system of choice, and so has grown from strength to strength, creating a “plumbing revolution” in standard plumbing thought processes today. Sanbra Fyffe Ltd are the market leading manufacturers of the NSAI & WRAS-approved Instantor-Press® System, and they continue to expand the range as engineers increasingly specify this PEXB-AL-PEXB System ahead of our market contenders.

But Why?

  • Because The Instantor Press® System`s components are signifi cantly more cost-effective than traditional system components.
  • Because The Instantor Press® System is simpler, faster, and easier to install with lower associated labour costs.
  • Because The Instantor Press® System meets the temperature and pressure requirements of a domestic and commercial hot and cold plumbing application.
  • Because The Instantor Press® System is the only multilayer piping system approved by the NSAI to “I.S.E.N” ISO 21003:2008.

Since The Instantor- Press® System’s launch in 2015, the range has grown significantly with new components added continuously. Some of these most recent additions include the introduction of Insulated Pex-Al-Pex in red and blue sleeved pipe, Press-Fit lever action ball valve’s plus radiator valve extension pieces.

Another example of Pex B`s (The Instantor Pex-al-Pex raw material) qualities includes more resistance to chloramines as used in hospitals, medical centres, schools etc. for disinfection purposes, thus providing a longer life expectancy in these building criteria.

Noel Conroy explains that the Instantor-Press System has become the system of choice for the engineering and plumbing professional. The Instantor Press System is quick to install in three simple steps – Cut, Calibrate & Press – saving on time and costs as fewer fittings and jointing materials are required when compared with traditional plumbing methods. Another noted benefit is that no hot works permits are required as the system is heat-free and requires no soldering, resulting in the removal of any potential heat/flame damage and – in addition – eliminating the associated insurance costs.

Instantor® Press fittings are designed for use in sanitary water supply and heating systems and are available in sizes 16mm, 20mm, 26mm and 32mm.

The extensive range of plumbing and heating products provided by Sanbra Fyffe include other brands of note such as INSTANTOR® brass compression fittings, TUCSON® pumps, motorised valves and expansion vessels, EIRLINE® taps, IMMERTEC® & ELEMEX® immersion heaters, SANKEL® central heating chemical treatments and LEISURE & RANGEMASTER sinks.
