Product Description

Press Fit and Sweat End copper Metraloops with ±4-inch movement UPC listed.  Press Fit end Metraloops include the Viega™ ProPress fittings and other press fit ready Metraloops with copper tube ends.

Paragraph 301.2 of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) requires that all components in a plumbing system to be a listed product. A plumbing inspector could require removal of any product that is not listed.

Like all the products in the Metraloop family of products, the UPC Listed Metraloop does not develop thrust loads and this results in almost eliminating the need for guides, simplifying anchor design when compared to in line bellows expansion joints. When you place a Metraloop in your line, you instantly reduce the stresses in the line.

If your press-fit system requires an expansion joint, you need a press-fit Metraloop joint. Just like all products in the Metraloop family, the UPC listed Metraloop expansion joints will compensate for thermal expansion and contraction without creating thrust loads.  Our experience has shown that the hydrostatic end loads developed by in line bellows products  can damage your press-fit fittings.
