Eight new Viega PEX Press fittings for fire sprinkler applications are available in two sizes, ¾-inch and 1-inch, and in four configurations, straight adapters, elbows, tees and wall tees. Viega offers an innovative and versatile installation mounting bracket that can be used with all sprinkler pendant styles and every sprinkler configuration, eliminating the guesswork behind properly aligning the sprinkler pendant. The unique new wall tee fitting does not require a bracket, and is designed for applications to efficiently feed back-to-back rooms with one plumbing line and one fitting.
Viega PEX Solutions offer installers several advantages, primarily installation time savings. With Viega PEX Solutions, installers can mount all the brackets, run the tubing and then press all the fittings, making the installation quicker and easier. In comparison, rigid pipe must be installed in a tedious, step-by-step process. The flexibility of PEX allows for easy bending around corners, whereas with rigid pipe, elbows must be installed at each corner. All Viega PEX Press fittings ¾” to 2″ are UL listed.
