Innovative material combination

The patented connection between the metal base unit and the PPSU support body combines the best of metallic and plastic piping systems. This enables multilayer pipes to be connected with low pressure losses and minimum constrictions.

Sealing face without O-ring

Compared with conventional connectors, which only provide a point seal by means of an O-ring, Viega Smartpress incorporates a sealing contour that seals across the entire surface along the entire length of the support body.

Maximum safety thanks to the SC-Contur

The Viega Smartpress connectors feature the patented SC-Contur, which ensures that any inadvertently unpressed connectors are immediately identifiable during a leak test. The windows in the press sleeve enable easy inspection of the insertion depth.

Flow-optimised geometry

We achieve this with our innovative production process involving stainless steel shaped and gunmetal parts, thus ensuring minimum pressure losses and smaller dimensions.

Time saving during assembly

Cut to length. Calibration no longer required. Push on. Press.
Comparison:
Calibration is omitted

Simple and quick assembly is a particular strength of Viega Smartpress. A long-lasting and secure connection is created in just three work steps: Cut off pipe, push on connector, press – that’s it. Laborious preparatory work such as calibrating or chamfering the pipe ends or additional widening are dispensed with. As a result, Viega Smartpress delivers time savings of up to 30%.

For drinking water and heating installations

Viega Smartpress is a plastic pipe system that minimises pressure losses and is designed for use in drinking water and heating installations. With dimensions of 16 to 63 mm, it is not only suitable for conventional floor installation, but also for use in installation risers and distribution lines.

    Diversity that can be warmly recommended.

    It goes without saying, that Viega Smartpress, with its high quality connectors and flexible, while at the same time dimensionally stable pipes, is ideally suited for heating installations. It not only saves costs and time here, but with its optimum adapters, the cross T-piece and a pre-insulated pipe, it also offers intelligent components that are perfectly matched to each other and therefore which master any connection variant involved.

  • Never found wanting for the ideal connection

    With a total of three pre-insulated connection blocks, Viega Smartpress really can deal with any connection required – it doesn’t matter if they come out of the wall or the floor. 

  • Manifold installation

    A stainless steel manifold with matching connection screw fittings is available for central distribution of heat to the radiators. This in turn means that radiators can be connected without any additional connectors into the floor inexpensively and safely.

    Unconditional drinking water hygiene.

    With a full range, Viega Smartpress always offers a perfect solution for not only every possible construction-site situation, but also for the various requirements placed on a drinking water installation. This applies regardless of whether the installation plant involved is a modern ring or series one, or a classical T-piece or distributor installation plant. Naturally, Viega Smartpress also complies with stringent requirements and legal regulations for the preservation of drinking water quality.

  • The future of drinking water installation: Ring and series pipelines

    A constant exchange of water in the drinking water installation is made available through series and ring systems. This means that, not only in particularly hygienically-sensitive buildings – such as hospitals and care facilities, but also in standard housing construction, the regular withdrawal of water at only one outlet point can help to keep the risk of stagnation and germination low.

Stainless steel, gunmetal and PPSU – ideal for all drinking water.

The Viega Smartpress system combines the best and most famous materials in a single system:

Stainless steel and gunmetal, familiar from metal piping systems such as Sanpress Inox or Profipress, as well as the high-performance plastic PPSU and the pipes made of electron-beam cross-linked PE that have been tried and tested over many decades. All materials are suitable for all types of drinking water, resistant to dezincification and meet the hygiene requirements of the accrediting authorities.

Quick assembly

Back

Time-consuming calibration no longer required: simply shorten, plug-on, press and it’s done.

None of the Viega Smartpress connectors in dimensions 16 to 63 mm require an O-ring. A major advantage during installation: This is because, complex calibration is no longer required. Any unintentional damage to the O-ring, the greater susceptibility for damage and the reduced internal diameter are all disadvantages that now no longer apply because the need for an O-ring has been dispensed with. This in turn speeds up installation while also making it permanently reliable. Naturally, the Viega Smartpress connectors also come with the patented SC-Contur, which immediately and reliably highlights any positions that have inadvertently remained unpressed.

Retains its shape and resists buckling.

The Viega Smartpress pipe excels with maximum dimensional stability while - at the same time - offering lots of flexibility. In smaller dimensions up to 32 mm, it can be easily bent by hand and matched perfectly to the individual installation conditions. Viega Smartpress pipes are also available in dimensions of 16 to 63 mm. To guarantee premium quality, all the system components and all the Viega Smartpress pipes are made by Viega itself – and, naturally, they all fulfil all normative specifications, while also having the necessary certifications.
