Hattersley offers a range of press-fit valves with integrated adapters for the Geberit Mapress system. Comprising a ball, balancing, strainer and check valve, the range is available in sizes from 15 to 54 mm and can be used with copper and Geberit stainless- and carbon-steel tubing.

The valve and adaptors are supplied assembled and tested as one unit, halving the number of components and joints required on site. Installation time is shortened, and the risk of a valve leaking is reduced.

These press-fit valves are particularly suited for prefabrication and have parallel threads for better resistance to bending forces and deliver much greater reliability.

The O rings in these joints have three defined leak paths, so unpressed joints can easily be identified and the joint completed without draining down the system. A white foil indicator on the pressing drops off when the press-fitting tool has been used to provide visual confirmation that the joint has been completed.
