The Products We Carry
Our products are available in the sizes you need to finish your projects or complete repairs as safely as possible. Fittings are all PN25 and made to resist corrosion even after extended use. When you're working with high-pressure situations, we know how crucial it is to get the proper thread size. It's why we carry fittings as small as 1/4" BSP to as high as 1" to ensure you're getting the tightest fit possible. Our fittings can withstand heavy torque, so you won't have to worry about damaging its stability as you set the fitting in place.
We also sell a joining compound made from hemp and paste to further ensure a sound connection. Browse our selection of equal tees, 90° female elbows, reduce bushes, sockets, caps, hollow plugs, reduce bushes, and hex nipples. These fittings can be used with a variety of standard pipes and structures to aid in the smooth transmission of fluids, so simply ask us if you have any questions about finding the right one for you.
First, you need to consider how you'll be using the structure in the future. If it's likely you'll need to reconfigure the joints often; you need to pick fittings where the joints can be easily broken and reformed. If you're working with extremely high-pressure applications, you may want to choose fittings with a higher PN rating. However, Buildworld's products are specifically calibrated to handle the vast majority of applications you may need. Once you understand the exact connection and thread size you need for the fitting, it only becomes a matter of matching up the dimensions to our products.
