After years of soldering copper pipe, you’ve started to hear about the benefits of press technology from industry leaders. Their success stories, combined with research, have convinced you it’s time to shift to copper press fittings.
While eager to trade in old techniques for a faster, less labor-intensive method, you also realize that this raises new questions. One example is the choice of a copper press fitting supplier for your project needs.
Here are some unique qualities that make Viega stand out among copper press fitting suppliers.
3 Reasons to Choose Viega as Your Copper Fitting Supplier
An Extensive Line of Products for Various Applications
Viega ProPress Copper is a system designed with flexibility in mind. With over 600 copper press fittings available in sizes ½" to 4" and multiple sealing elements (EPDM and HNBR) to choose from, the Viega system is approved for more applications than those offered by other copper press fitting suppliers. These applications stretch across residential, commercial and industrial spaces, with specific uses in fire sprinkler systems, hot/cold potable water, hydronic heating and compressed air. (See page 15 of this brochure for a more extensive list.)
Tested, Well-Engineered Press Fittings
From the development of copper press fittings to production at state-of-the-art facilities, our team settles for nothing less than the highest quality. We pair lead-free materials that meet National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) standards with pipe fitting designs that are thicker than the thickest copper tube available — Type K copper tube — which makes them built to last.
As tests from NSF International indicate, pipe joints made with Viega ProPress have a rated test pressures of 600 psi and operational pressures of 200 psi between the working temperature range of 0° and 250℉.
A Long List of Satisfied Customers
For industry leaders already using Viega ProPress, the results have been positive. Aside from boosting their overall confidence in copper pipe connections, faster installation times have helped them expand their market presence and increase their profitability.
However, we don’t want to just share these results with you. We want you to hear from some of our satisfied customers firsthand:
North Alabama Medical Center
“At one time we had about 85 people on the piping side of the work for this project. It’s so big. I love that the copper system is clean and there are no shavings or flux in the system.” - Mark Bradley, Superintendent for MMC
Principle Auto/BMW of San Antonio
“For the service shop buildings, for example, our team had 10,400 feet of piping to install. We used our BIM modeling and manufacturing to prefab sections, and Viega ProPress fittings to be able to complete the scope of work in four weeks with as many as eight field partners.” - Robert Huron, Project Manager at TDIndustries
New Headquarter Building in Texas
“We’ve tried other similar products and had issues with them or the quality doesn’t seem to be as good as the ProPress.” - Craig Hawkins, Brandt Construction
