For the highest quality and safety demands
From safe drinking water supply to complex supply systems in industrial applications and extremely critical installations, for example in hospitals or hotels – Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel is the right choice for all sanitary projects with very high demands. With its fittings and extensive range of piping materials, the system is also suitable for transporting service water, compressed air, gases, chemicals and many other different media in addition to its use for safe and reliable drinking water installations.
Directives, regulations and standards reliably under control
Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel can be disinfected chemically and thermally if this is required by applicable directives and standards, or if the supply network is contaminated. In addition to VdS certification, it has also been approved by all main international certification bodies for use in sprinkler systems.
For hygiene reasons, all Geberit Mapress pressfittings are sealed with a protection plug, which is only removed once they are processed. The colour of the plug also indicates their application. In standard applications Mapress Stainless Steel is approved for operating temperatures of -30 ° C to 120 °C and maximum pressures of 1.6 MPa (16 bar). The application and temperature ranges can also be extended with special seal rings, for example for solar applications.
The Geberit Stainless Steel fitting range covers conventional dimensions from 12 to 108 mm and features over 500 fittings for each application. A number of adapters ensure the very best connections between Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel and other Geberit supply systems.
The Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel alloy is optimally designed for the various applications. For example, it contains a high level of molybdenum that exceeds the specifications of valid European standards. It ensures stability and maximum corrosion protection. Special thermal and mechanical treatment of all fittings creates a homogeneous, high-quality material structure in the fitting, pipe and weld seams. This effective treatment ensures optimum formability and the necessary long-term tightness. Smooth surfaces ensure a perfect fit of the seal ring and optimum hygienic properties.
