FIXOCUT – installing barrier-free bathroom fixtures quickly and easily
The FIXOCUT pipe cutting set makes connecting bathroom fixtures that are flush with the floor, e.g. barrier-free showers, easier. This process optimization results in time and money savings.
New development in the PFERD range
PFERD presents another new development this year: the FIXOCUT pipe cutting set. Unlike with the conventional approach, the new junction at the existing pipe can be installed directly from the worksite with the FIXOCUT system. This means that the existing pipe does not have to be exposed in the room below the bathroom any more, which always takes much time and effort. As a result, the ceilings and walls below the worksite are not damaged.
Once the existing pipe has been exposed and a section of about 80 cm in length has been cut out with a saw, the cutting device can be inserted into the pipe from above, the height of the cut can be adjusted and the pipe can be cut. A spacer disc at the diamond wheel prevents parallel pipes from being damaged during the cutting process. The cut pipe section is then removed from the worksite, and the coupling, the junction and the new drainpipe are installed.
Advantages at a glance:
- Precise horizontal cut thanks to guide plate
- Free choice of cutting depth (10–35 cm)
- Diamond cut-off wheel, suitable for plain-end cast iron, heat-resistant PP, PVC or clay pipes
- Effective free-cutting thanks to the wheel’s protective segments
- Ready for use in a robust and compact case
The FIXOCUT pipe cutting set consists of a drive, a flexible shaft, a tool holder, a guide plate and a diamond cut-off wheel. It is supplied in a robust and compact portable case where it can be stored ready for use.
The FIXOCUT system was developed together with plumbers specializing in remodelling bathrooms in existing buildings in order to make the laborious work processes easier and more cost-effective. End users and retailers appreciate the new products and innovations from August Rüggeberg GmbH & Co.
