Navigator’s Midbrass and Salvus Pressfit range meets BS-EN 1254-7 

Navigator has seen its major range of Pressfit fittings all independently tested and certified by BSI to BS EN 1254-7. All Navigator Pressfit products are “M-type” and compatible when used with standard M type tools. 

The new BS EN 1254-7 standard incorporates rigorous testing procedures, including a standardised high temperature test, greater pull out resistance, updated requirements for seals, comprehensive requirements for threads and additional leak tightness for completed assemblies. Kitemark products are audited and tested by BSI at least once a year, as is the production and quality process at the factory. 

The MB range is from Navigator’s Midbrass stable for water. Suitable for chilled water and heating systems, MB Pressfit is also approved for potable water use by WRAS and incorporates black polymeric seals manufactured to BS 6920-1:2000. 

Navigator’s Salvus range is designed for use with gas. It has a special high temperature yellow polymer seal conforming to DIN EN 549:2019. 

Navigator’s Roger Evans said: “Our Pressfit products have been hugely popular with plumbers and heating installers for many years, but we have now got arguably the best quality and range of products in Pressfit for both water and gas systems with every component independently tested and certified with the latest Kitemark certification. To compliment the fittings, a full range of lever ball valves and isolating valves with Pressfit ends will be available in the autumn.”
