Explore the Precision and Versatility of Fernco Bushes

Fernco's range of bushes is designed to offer a high-performance solution for connecting pipes with significantly different outside diameters. These bushes are an integral part of Fernco’s comprehensive range of plumbing solutions, catering to specific site and application requirements​​​​.

Key Features and Applications

  • Adaptable and Versatile: Fernco bushes are simple rings of EPDM rubber, available in various diameters and thicknesses. They are used as additional components with either Shear Banded Couplings or Lateral Connection Saddles, ideal for increasing the outside diameter of a pipe when it is too small for the intended coupling or saddle​​.
  • Conformance to Standards: These bushes conform to the WIS 4-41-01 standard, ensuring compatibility and reliability in adopted drainage pipelines. They are particularly crucial when connecting pipes with Shear Banded Couplings to protect against vertical shear loads​​.
  • Wide Range of Applications: The bushes are suitable for a variety of applications, including lateral connection saddles, and are essential in connecting different pipe materials like clay and plastic within the same nominal size​​.

Product Range and Specifications

  • Moulded Bushes
    Fernco's Moulded Bushes are expertly designed from high-quality EPDM rubber, offering versatility and durability. Available in various diameters and thicknesses, these bushes are essential for increasing the outside diameter of pipes in plumbing configurations where the pipe is too small for the intended coupling or saddle. They are ideal for filling voids between the pipe and the coupling, ensuring a secure and precise fit. With a temperature range of -50°C to 80°C (constant) and up to 100°C (intermittent), these bushes are adaptable to a wide range of environmental conditions​​.

  • Fabricated Bushes
    Fabricated Bushes by Fernco are tailored to meet specific site and application needs. These bushes are an integral part of ensuring a high-performance seal on low-pressure pipes, especially in situations where a significant difference in outside diameters exists. The flexibility in their application allows them to be used when an increase in pipe outside diameter is needed, conforming to the WIS 4-41-01 standard and BS EN 681-1:1996. These bushes are a testament to Fernco's commitment to providing custom solutions for unique plumbing challenges​.

  • Multibush
    The Fernco Multibush is an innovative, foldable bush designed for exceptional adaptability in plumbing connections. It's capable of adapting to three different thicknesses, making it suitable for multiple connection scenarios. This versatility is particularly useful for professionals who need to respond to unforeseen connection requirements on-site. Available in sizes DN100, DN150, and DN200, the Multibush allows for the connection of any two pipe materials of the same nominal diameter. This feature significantly reduces the need for different stock configurations, streamlining inventory management. For instance, the DN150 Multibush can be used in conjunction with Unisaddles (FA150U and FA150B) to connect any DN150 pipe into larger diameter main concrete drainage pipes. The Multibush's innovative design simplifies the process of connecting pipes, making it a valuable tool for a wide range of plumbing applications.
