Flowflex End Feed Fittings, manufactured in both Copper and Bronze, are a fast, reliable and economic method of joining BS EN 1057 copper tube.
End Feed Fittings connect to copper tube through the process of capillary action with solder forming an easy, effective joint between the fitting and the tube. They are lightweight for easy handling and lend themselves well to confined environments due to their compact sizing.

Equipotential Bonding forms an important part of an installation, which ensures that all metalwork may be earthed or at least has the same potential to reduce the risk of equipment damage and personal injury. Isolated fittings or valves are not required to be bonded.
Flowflex Copper Fittings provide guaranteed electrical continuity when correctly assembled with EN1057 Copper Tube.
