Shear banded couplings are a requirement of the UK water companies when connecting onto their assets. This requirement forms part of Water Industry Specification (WIS) 4-41-01, which outlines the requirements to connect pipes on adopted systems using only shear banded couplings. The shear band gives the connection added protection against shear loads that could cause the pipes to become mis-aligned.
Withstands an internal pressure of up to 2.5 bar
A proven, tested and durable coupling design ensuring a high performance and a reliable connection
Stainless steel shear band provides excellent resistance to heavy loads and shear forces to ensure joint integrity and pipe alignment
Complies with WIS 4-41-01 (all public sewers and sewers for adoption)
Complies with BS EN 295 Part 4 & EN681-1: 1995 requirements for vitrified clay pipes and fittings
