Press Fit
If your press-fit system requires an expansion joint, you need a press-fit Metraloop joint. Metraloop expansion joints will compensate for thermal expansion and contraction without creating thrust loads that can damage your press-fit system.

With tens of thousands of installations worldwide, Metraloop expansion joints are proven to virtually eliminate thrust loads while requiring minimal guiding. The press fit copper Metraloop joint is the perfect solution to protect your press-fit system when an expansion joint is needed.

Metraloop Copper Press Ready expansion joints are compatible with all Press Fit systems, including:

  • Viega™
  • ApolloXpress™
  • B Press™
  • Cello Products™
  • Elkhart Products™
  • Kem Press™
  • MM Kembla™
  • Nibco™

Both sweat and ProPress/Press Fit Metraloop expansion joints are NSF 61 certified, which is required by code, and NSF 372 lead free.
