Lee San launches latest composite fittings
Lee Sanitation became a UK distributor of Tru Design fittings in 2011 and has now launched the company’s latest fit and forget composite fittings.
The new skin fittings have been designed for thicker hulls and are constructed from precision moulded, glass-reinforced, nylon composite.
“It really can be a matter of life or death to understand the dangers of some inferior, below-water level fixtures,” said Lee San director Karl Sutcliffe. “Any hole in a vessel’s hull is a potential weak point so using the right fitting is absolutely essential.”
He added: “The new fittings offer the same level of strength, but at a much lighter weight compared to the ferrous alternatives available.”
“They also eliminate all corrosion and bonding problems associated with electrolysis.”
The material is unaffected by petrol, diesel and chemicals associated with antifouling paints including Copper Coat.
It is UV resistant and will not discolour with the sun’s rays.
All fittings are able to withstand an operating temperature of minus 20°C to 100°C and conform to ISO 9093-2, ABYC H27, Bureau Veritas.
They are suitable for all types of hull including aluminium, wood, steel, composite and GRP.
