Angle valves are an important component in bathrooms and kitchens where they are installed as a transition between the back and the front installations. They have the vital function of shutting off a channel of fluids securely, such as water. While there are many good distributors and manufacturers of angle valves, including Schell, Nil, Grohe, it is always important to know what a good angle valve should do. Prior to any installation it is essential to inspect the angle valve and to check the threads. Should any defects be visible the angle valve should not be installed. An angle valve is a shut-off valve that is usually installed where liquids are transported. Therefore, all rubbers and plastics that come into contact with the fluid need to be tested and approved by a respectable agency. The angle valves from Swiss Fittings are mainly distributed in Germany and are used in drinking water applications. Therefore, all rubbers have DVGW and KTW approvals.
Swiss Fittings currently offers two types of angle valves, with or without the O-ring seal. The O-ring seals are on the thread and provide a secure, tight connection. Larger quantities of angle valves can be ordered directly from our production.
