Chosen for its speed and ease of installation, Equator was used for the hot and cold water distribution system to serve the bath, basin, shower & bidet for each of the 218 rooms in the four-star hotel.
Equator pipe and fittings are ideal for hot and cold and central heating systems for all types of domestic, commercial and light industrial applications. Manufactured from a high grade engineering plastic, cross-linked polyethylene (PE-X), the system is lightweight, flexible and more cost effective than traditional copper, although if required, Equator fittings can be used in conjunction with copper pipe. However, care should be taken when connecting copper pipe to Equator fittings; a copper pipe insert must be used. This will safely guide the cut copper pipe end past the o-ring, eliminating any risk of damaging the o-ring from sharp edges on the copper pipe.
A unique grip release mechanism enables fittings to be taken apart using a de-mounting tool, ensuring a re-usable and adaptable fitting. Available in sizes from 10mm to 28mm, the Equator range also includes a variety of manifolds in two, three and four port options, with and without flow control valves.
