Instantor’s game-changing gas copper fittings hit Irish market

Home to the iconic Instantor brand, Sanbra Fyffe has been a market leader in the manufacturing, wholesale and distribution of certified plumbing supplies to the builder’s merchants trade for over 85 years.

After much demand from installers, Instantor has recently announced the launch of a brand-new range of fittings. Instantor Copper Press Fittings for Gas Applications are now available to shop from merchants nationwide. Never a brand to shy away from innovation, Instantor is the only manufacturer to offer imperial- sized gas copper press fittings for the Irish market.

A game changer

Instantor is known for leading the way when it comes to plumbing technologies and paying close attention to the products that plumbers are calling out for. Instantor Gas Copper Press Fittings will be a game changer in the Irish market, as there are no other manufacturers currently offering imperial gas copper press fittings, until now.

Previously, the brand offered Instantor Copper Press Fittings designed for use with imperial and metric pipe in a range of sizes up to 54mm, but only for use in water applications. Instantor Copper Press fittings offer a high-quality modern solution with flame-free jointing for faster and safer installation. With no hot works permit required, copper press fittings make any installation quick and straightforward.

Pairing nicely with the launch of Instantor Gas Copper Press Fittings are angled jaws for the Instantor Press Tool. Instantor angled jaws have been highly requested since the release of the Instantor Press Tools last year. Jaws are available for VI profile (imperial fittings ½”, ¾” & 1”) & M profile (metric fittings 15mm & 22mm).

Quality without compromise

As Sanbra Fyffe’s tagline states, there is a high emphasis on quality when it comes to the Instantor brand, as many in the industry will be fully aware of. The brand is well known for producing reliable fittings that simply don’t leak. From mechanical engineers, to merchants and installers, this is music to any customers’ ears, as they can rely on peace of mind with a guarantee of 25 years and sound permanent joints.

Copper is known for its durability, corrosion resistance, thermal conductivity and hygienic qualities. Instantor Copper Press is designed for no less than 50 years when applicable to standards.

Certified to the highest standards

Sanbra Fyffe is proudly recognised as an NSAI certified ISO 14001 company and places a strong focus on the in-house Environmental Management System at its Dublin-based offices, during product design and manufacturing. Instantor Copper Press Fittings are designed without the presence of lead, soldering methods, flame works/carbon emissions. The Instantor range is set to see a continued focus on more environmentally conscious products as early as next year, with more products promised to be en route to market.

Instantor Copper Press Fittings for use in water applications are WRAS approved and manufactured to EN1254-7, whilst gas fittings carry KIWA GASTCH QA approval.

The team at Instantor is also delighted to announce the facilitation of Installer Competency Training and Certification on all Instantor Press Systems. To register interest simply contact us, and a member of the team will be in touch.

Instantor Copper Press Fittings are available in imperial and metric sizes for both water and gas applications from all leading building merchants nationwide.
