    never seen it, is it specced for a reason or has the architect just copied someone elses spec to save time as they all do, I reckon one bloke did one initially and the rest just copied his spec

    I would imagine the reason is cost compared to LCS (install time maybe not material cost)

    It needs plenty of brackets as it will sag
    Don't burn yourself too many times with the iron

    I used it on site about 7 years ago was supposed to be the next best thing at the time.

    Cant recall it being awkward other than a set time to make the weld ,one thing i do recall tho is that the bur from the pipe use to get into valves with filters.

    We had a similar product over here.
    Make sure you read the MI's for expansion loops !!!.
    Make sure you test it to the correct pressures for a minimum of 24 hours.

    It's good stuff, mark your weld depth cut the pipe straight. Start the fitting first weld the pipe for the right time, push the fitting and pipe together to your marked depth hold in place. Can't go wrong pal.
