Flange connections

Our unique SlimFlange is part of our wider portfolio of flange connection options which includes a range of traditional stub flanges. SlimFlange is a unique steel-reinforced flange adaptor that allows bore-size-for-size jointing of a PE pipe to a metal flange. Compact and lightweight, it eliminates the need to upsize valves or other metal fittings, providing asset operators and installers with a faster, more compact and cost effective solution.

  • Stub flanges in sizes 63mm to 800mm
  • SlimFlange in sizes 250mm to 560mm
  • Suitable for electrofusion and butt-fusion jointing
  • Compatible with GPS PE Yellow pipes and fittings
  • Bespoke lengths available to be tailored to individual site requirements

Spigots and fabricated fittings

GPS PE Yellow spigot fittings are supplied complete with pupped outlets ready for electrofusion or butt-fusion, eliminating the need for additional pupping at installation. The range comprises a wide variety of shapes which includes mitred bends, equal and reduced tees, reducers and stub flange assemblies. Together with our technical design service, we provide solutions for both innovative new pipeline design and existing complicated pipe networks, offering a superior quality experience to specifiers, designers and installers without the need to compromise on operating pressure or retention of existing complicated infrastructure. 

  • Suitable for electrofusion and butt-fusion techniques
  • Excellent performance without reduction of operating pressure
  • Compatible with GPS PE Yellow pipes and fittings
  • Bespoke options available to be tailored to individual site requirements
  • Available in a wide range of shapes and pressure ratings
  • Sizes 63mm to 800mm
