Black iron pipe is costly to install and susceptible to failure due to corrosion, joint leaks and natural disasters with catastrophic results.
When natural disaster strikes, nothing beats CSST gas piping for withstanding the natural forces that wreak havoc on rigid pipe and building structures.
Reputable CSST products are approved by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), International Fuel Gas Code (IFGC) and Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC).
As the only gas piping technology approved by ANSI and other national standards, Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST) has been installed in millions of homes with an outstanding safety record.
Two natural forces affect all gas piping: earthquakes and lightning strikes. Originally developed in Japan as an alternative to rigid black iron piping, CSST is the only gas piping that withstands both.
