SIGMA LAUNCHES WEDGE ACTION RESTRAINT FOR 42″ & 48″ C900 PVC PIPE

SIGMA is the only manufacturer to offer 3″-60″ Gland Replacement Wedge Action Restraints for PVC Pipes in North America

November 2019 – SIGMA Corporation is proud to introduce the One-Lok Model SLCE wedge action restraint for 42″ & 48″ PVC pressure piping. The new One-Lok has a unique design, which allows the product to act as both a pipe restraint and as a gasket compression gland. Additionally, the restraining glands have been designed to minimize the assembly time required to install the joint. This feature differs from competitors’ products, which require the use of an additional mechanical joint follower gland. As a further benefit to customers, the same restraining gland can be used for both mechanical fitting joints and bell harness PVC joint assemblies.  Read more …
