We pride ourselves on our quality of delivery service but also on the quality of our fittings and after-sales service. MDPE Compression / mechanical fittings provide alternatives for connecting PE pipes, used for distributing water and other fluids in inter-urban and urban infrastructure, industrial, mining, landscape, farming in addition to optical fibre duct systems. The fittings are designed to withstand pressures of up to 16bar, and these fittings are manufactured in most common diameters.
