A wide range of copper pipes and fittings are available at Buildworld allowing buyers greater choice in procuring coil lengths, elbows, couplings, reducers, valves, tees, and inserts. We offer an array of sizes and designs supporting a wide range of custom projects, maintenance needs, and upgrades. Copper tubes and fittings have a proven record for great performance and provide a cost-effective solution to many installations. These are durable and easy to install. We offer a variety of mains water supply pieces in both piping and fittings. Designed specifically for long-lasting, underground water services, our piping and fittings connect individual water main properties to various distribution points.
Pipes made from copper preclude the possibility for micro-organisms to breed within its confines and thereby prevents the bacterial infestation inside the pipeline. In addition to being bio-static, copper is far more malleable than steel, which allows a greater range of bends and curves to eliminate specialised use of fasteners or joint fixtures during installation. Copper pipes offer dependable, lead-free connections require zero maintenance, however, cold temperatures in the extreme tend to cause copper pipes to split once the water within the pipes freeze.
Intrinsically, copper is fire resistant, and fittings made from copper remain unaffected by fire contact without the danger of releasing harmful emissions. Besides its unaltered state in conditions of extreme heat, copper can withstand high pressure per square inch. High levels of acid present in the water supply are detrimental to copper piping as it leads to corrosion. Copper pipes are highly desirable for their durability and easy installation.
Copper fittings have exceptional thermal conductivity, which makes them efficient connectors in straight sections of pipe or tube. Manufactured in a broad range of sizes, copper pipes being corrosion and fire resistant are used in plumbing to manipulate the flow of water, gas, or liquid within a system of pipes or tubes. Copper fittings are highly adaptable and easily manoeuvred, making them instrumental in establishing competent joints and connections. These fittings can be soldered or brazed to pipes. Fittings designed for use with the copper pipe are usually made of high quality copper and include Elbows, flanges, couplings, tees, end caps, reducers and more. Refrigerant lines, below the ground piping, and compact sealing functions take advantage of copper fittings.
