KAN‑therm ultraLINE fittings are versatile and so they can connect different types of pipes, i.e. PEXC, PERT² and PERTAL². This unique feature makes sure that the final solution can be configured as desired.
The biggest advantage of the ultraLINE fittings is their construction without O-rings.
No additional sealing means easier assembly, and what is most important, lower risk of damaging the connection.
Fittings have specially shaped connectors (without additional seals), which are inserted into the previously expanded end of the pipe and then slid onto the connection with a plastic sleeve. The pipe is clamped circumferentially on the coupling stub in the entire contact plane. Such a connection allows for conducting the installation in structural partitions (in flooring finishing coats and under layers of plaster) without any limitations.
Sliding sleeves of system KAN‑therm ultraLINE are one of the most important elements responsible for connecting and sealing the pipe with the fitting.
The sleeves are produced only of high-quality PVDF.
Their symmetrical design is a nod to individuals and contractors.
The mounting of the sleeve on the pipe is arbitrary, no specific positioning is required. This is a great convenience for installers and a guarantee of correctly made connections.
ultraLINE fittings mean over 30 years of experience on the market, constant research and development aimed at creating a product that is safe, convenient and resistant to the most common defects in workmanship.
ultraLINE is the vision come true of a perfect product that symbolises and sets the latest trends in the installation technology.
To connect System KAN-therm ultraLINE pipes, in addition to connections with a sliding sleeve, standard threaded connections with a flat wrench can be used.
Two main types of connectors are available for these connectors:
Universal ultraLINE union connections are available in the diameter range of 14-20mm.
Real advantage of union connections is their automatic sealing after fitting. Connections of this kind are self-sealing and need no additional seal, such as Teflon tape or tow.
The connections should be located in easily available spaces.
Universal threaded couplings with internal, external threads or so-called connectors, available in diameters 14-20mm.
Threaded couplings from the pipe connection side do not require the use of additional seals – tightness is guaranteed by the appropriate construction of the coupling stub on which the pipe is mounted. From the thread side (internal or external) an additional sealing in the form of tow should be used.
Threaded couplings, due to the specificity of the fitting and its design, do not require additional sealing.
Threaded connections must be located in easily available spaces.
Threaded couplings and union connections have a construction making it possible to assembly at the same time uniform PEXC and PERT² pipes and PERTAL² pipes.
Thanks to the universal structure of couplings and union connections, duplicating the fitting offer is avoided, which translates into more flexible and comfortable installation, as well as saving space for storing elements.
