Geberit Mapress Copper

Tried-and-tested material for pressing

The classic Choice

Safe processing without an open flame

Many plumbers can still rely on copper, Geberit Mapress Copper is very easy to press and can be used for a variey of applications including gas. The supply system can be processed quickly and reliably without soldering eliminating the risk of hot works.

Geberit Mapress Copper applications

  • Potable water
  • Heating
  • Gas
  • Cooling and refrigeration
  • Industry
  • Offshore
  • Solar systems
  • Saturated Steam

Many good reasons for Geberit Mapress Copper

Seal ring

Unpressed Geberit Mapress Copper fitting detection

The Geberit Mapress seal ring provides the pressing indicator with additional safety. Due to its special contours, unpressed connections leak during the pressure test. This recognition feature prevents harm later during operation.

The guide contour of the pressing jaw ensures a reliable pressing operation

Simple connection

Pressing jaw guide for safety

The defined jaw guide on the Geberit Mapress Copper fitting ensures that the pressing jaw is positioned in exactly the right position. It also prevents any risk of the joint slipping or being pressed in the wrong place. This prevents failed pressing sequences and ensures reliable and durable connections.

Mechanical strength

Wide range of applications

The coordinated components lend the system a very high load bearing capacity. Operating pressures up to 16 bar are possible. Due to the high level of mechanical strength, a wide range of applications is possible which extends far beyond the usual domestic installations.

Spheroidisation of the Geberit Mapress seal ring after the pressing operation

For permanent fixture and a high level of safety

The Geberit Mapress seal ring is given a pre-defined shape during the pressing procedure. During this process the ring absorbs additional energy for permanent and reliable tightness.

Homogenous material structure after the pressing operation of Mapress Copper

Homogeneous material structure

Thermally perfect weld seam execution

A clean weld seam is particularly important for permanent tightness of the system on the contact area of the seal ring. The weld seam therefore has to meet Geberit's stringent quality demands. A special thermal treatment ensures the desired homogenous material structure and thereby an optimum pressing operation.

Geometry of the Geberit Mapress Copper fittings

Compact design

Thanks to the compact geometry of the Geberit Mapress Copper fittings, they require less space and therefore tighter fitting combinations are possible. Furthermore, Geberit offers numerous fittings that are suitable for a wide range of applications.

Soldering or welding the copper pipe joints.

No open flames

No risk of fire

The strength and tightness of the press connection is achieved by cold deformation of the copper pipe and Geberit Mapress Copper fitting. In contrast to soldering operations, no open flame or heat is required. Additional protection measures are unnecessary for renovation and repair work.

Pressing indicator on the Geberit Mapress Copper fitting

White pressing indicator

Fast visual check

The white colour of the pressing indicator on the fitting enables clear identification of the material. In addition, a print on the pipe end facilitates the identification of the dimension used. The pressing indicator can be simply removed manually after the correct pressing operation.

Faster connection

Pressing instead of welding

Pressing is not only straightforward, but also fast – in fact, it's around twice as fast as soldering. The pressing procedure itself is fast and simple: cut to length, deburr, mount the fitting, press – and you’re done.

Protection plug

Protection against dust and dirt

The pressing sockets of Geberit Mapress Copper fittings are sealed with a plug that protects the supply network from dust and dirt. The colour of the protection plug also identifies the application.
