PARAGON PLASTICS: Push-Fit Pipe Jointing System For 15mm Domestic Hot & Cold Water (1982) Project Brief: To develop an economical, simple push fit joint for use with Copper, Polybutylene & PVCc pipes. The styling should be neat & slim line. The joint should be able to be removable/reusable without special tools. The joint should be capable of being included in the following fitting configurations: Coupler, Double Socket. Elbow, 45 0 Double Socket. Elbow, 90 0 Double Socket. Elbow, 90 0 Double Socket. Equal Tee, Triple Socket. End Cap. Notes: The project was completed, the result was a fully developed joint that was ready for productionising into the range of fittings as detailed above. Market research at the time showed that professional plumbers preferred using Copper pipes & soldered joints & that DIY users did not have the confidence to trust plastic components. These sensitivities resulted in the project being shelved until the use of plastics in place of traditional materials was accepted. The product is now on the market.
