Philmac Metric Compression Fittings

Features & Benefits

  • No Loose Components

    Grip ring and seal remain captive in the body when the nut is removed.

  • Interchangeability

    Rural, Safelok® and Metric components are all interchangeable as they share a common body.

  • Made from Advanced Plastics

    The fitting is manufactured from lightweight, high performance thermoplastic materials with outstanding impact, UV and corrosion resistance. The materials used are non-toxic and taint free.

  • Slide and Tighten™

    Incorporating all the benefits of Slide and Tighten™ technology with 100% positive feedback.

  • Disassembly

    The fitting has been designed so the grip ring is released as the nut is backed off, enabling the pipe to be simply pulled out of the fitting.

  • Compact Size

    The size of Metric fittings has been kept to a minimum, making this fitting ideal to use in compact spaces.

  • Minimal Pipe Twist

    The fitting is designed to minimise pipe twist, reducing the risk of untightening joints.

  • Visual Stop

    The flange on the body of the fitting acts as a visual cue to indicate when the nut is fully tightened. Once the nut touches the flange on the body, the fitting is in a fully tightened state.
