UK Plumbing Supplies introduce FlexiGas™,  flexible stainless steel semi-rigid gas tubing designed for domestic and commercial gas installations. Due to the numerous benefits, FlexiGas™ is the expert choice for plumbers who are looking for an efficient, lightweight, flexible alternative to rigid copper or steel.

FlexiGas™ typically saves 50%-75% of the time required for copper or steel installations. Because of the semi rigid nature of the tubing, FlexiGas™ can be bent by hand and passed through interior spaces easily, in a similar fashion to electrical cable, resulting in fewer fittings being used. The unique FlexiGas™ fittings (patent pending) ensure a secure seal in a matter of seconds without the need for any specialist tools.

Designed for all domestic and commercial Gas applications including new installations, repairs and extensions, the FlexiGas™ system will save you time and money. With no special tools required there are no setup costs associated with switching to the FlexiGas™ system.

The FlexiGas™ system is approved by BSI under the KiteMark certification scheme (598726) and is manufactured in accordance with BS EN 15266:2007

How To Install FlexiGas™

flexigas install 1 Cut the FlexiGas™ tubing using a standard wheel metal pipe cutter (we recommend the Lenox pipe cutter for best performance). Ensure the cut is centered in the valley between corrugations and the cutter is only slightly tightened on each full revolution around tube. Make sure the cut is clean with no sharp metal edges.
flexigas install 2 With a utility knife, safely remove the flame retardant yellow cover so that the last four corrugations are exposed.
flexigas install 3 Slide the nut over the tubing and then place the two semi-circular collets around the tubing so that the ridges on the collets occupy the last three valleys of the tubing.
flexigas install 4 Make sure that the copper ring is in place on the seat inside the fitting (free replacement rings are available) before inserting the collets into the fitting. Tighten the nut and fitting using two suitably sized wrenches. The seal is formed when the last corrugation deforms around the copper seat inside the fitting. Make sure that sufficient torque is applied.
flexigas install 5 After conducting a gas tightness test, wrap the small gap between the “tail” on the nut and the tube using yellow silicone tape.
