Tigris K1 is a press-fit plumbing system designed for potable water, sanitary and heating applications. The Tigris K1 system comprises multilayer composite pipe and high-quality PPSU fittings with a fixed stainless steel sleeve, in sizes from 16mm to 75mm. Fittings are compressed onto the pipe using a battery-powered press-fit tool in an operation that takes a fraction of the time of traditional soldering techniques.
Hep2O is a push-fit plumbing system with slim and sleek fittings, which work with both plastic and copper pipe and is ideal for a range of hot and cold water and heating applications. All fittings feature a unique In4sureTM joint recognition technology which tells you when a secure joint has been made. And if you need to adjust things onsite, HepKeyTM unlocks the tamper-proof fittings, making demounting simple. No wonder it’s the only plastic system approved by British Gas and used by 70% of major UK housebuilders.
When should you combine Tigris K1 and Hep2O?
Due to its compatibility with our Hep2O push-fit plumbing system, as well as traditional copper pipe, Tigris K1 is perfect for use in both refurbishment and large-scale industrial and commercial projects such as high-rise buildings, and apartments and office blocks.
The larger diameter K1 pipes and fittings are used to provide plumbing and heating solutions to the whole building – simply select the correct size from one of the Hep2O adaptors to distribute the water to the individual apartments or office buildings as it is needed.
