Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel is designed for installations in which economy is of the highest priority. The system is mainly used in closed water heating systems, cooling water systems, sprinkler systems, extinguishing water pipes or compressed air networks. Available in dimensions 12-108mm, including 66.7mm.
Safe processing without an open flame
Geberit Mapress prevents fire hazards at the building site, as work does not require an open flame as used during soldering or welding. Pressing indicators and defined leak paths provide additional safety that incorrectly closed connections are always detected during inspection and when the system is subjected to a leak test.
Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel fittings are zinc-plated and also finished with a chromatised protective layer. As with all Geberit Mapress systems, a pressing indicator shows whether the fitting was correctly pressed. Its red colour indicates the material carbon steel, and the dimension is also easily visible. More than 400 fittings are available. Corresponding adapters create fast, simple and safe connections to other Geberit systems.
Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel Solar & Industry (blue seal ring) is also available. Click here for more information about Geberit Mapress Seal Rings.
Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel fittings and pipe are available from your local BSS, Pipe Center, Plumb Center, Ashworths or William Wilson. Available in in dimensions 12-108mm, including 66.7mm.
Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel system pipes are made of non-alloy steel (BS EN10305) to extremely high standards.There are three different types of Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel system pipe:
Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel system pipes, externally galvanised, and Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel internally and externally galvanised are non-compustible pipes.
Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel system pipes, plastic coated, are combustible pipes. The plastic coating of these pipes burns without dripping.
Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel pipes can be bent by hand up to r>5∙d and by bending tool up to r>3.5∙d.Specialist bending equipment will be required above 54mm diameter. Plastic coated pipes can be bent as above down to -10˚c.
Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel pipes must not be heated for bending.
