Uses for Institutional Fittings
Institutional fittings are used to create thousands of everyday products such as commercial lavatory and kitchen faucets, chrome-plated shower products, bed pan cleaners, remote control valves and outlets, residential bathroom products, ball and needle valve hose cocks and single service and mixing laboratory faucets. The purchase of a new home or new business property is one of the greatest and most important investments you will make, so you want to be completely sure that your institutional fittings are high-quality and are installed in a correct manner.
Institutional fittings may be customized according to the needs and specifications of the client. Knowing how you want a piece of property to function and what the everyday needs will be for the people using it are the primary factors for making decisions about institutional fittings.
Institutional fittings may also be used for electrical materials such as canopy fixtures, security systems, flood lights and street and parking lot lighting. It is also important to determine if you want environmentally friendly products to be used, and whether you are interested in LED downlights or LED fluorescent tube alternatives.
Types of Institutional Fittings
Types of institutional fittings will vary depending on what the fitting is being used for. However, many institutional fittings are electrical or plumbing based.
Electrical wire for institutional fittings may be drawn copper, metal or aluminum and carry electricity through electrical circuits. The wire may be run underground, overhead or through conduit. Wherever the wire is run through, it is always protected with an electrical jacket. Electrical connectors are lugs, which are used to terminate the electrical circuit. Lugs may be composed of aluminum, copper or bronze.
Institutional fittings for plumbing services were a huge part of the development of industrialized society, but today’s institutional fittings within the context of the plumbing industry are very heavily dependent on the new housing market, commercial and institutional construction, as well as replacement and renovation. Most plumbing fittings are constructed for residential use. Primary residential applications often include bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms and gardens. Fixtures are also likely to complement various institutional, commercial and industrial plumbing systems. Most fittings, as well as fixtures, may be divided into one of four groups:
- Traps, tubes and drains
- Pipe fittings
- Faucets and toilets
- Shower fixtures.
These institutional fittings are usually created with manufactured metals used by the industry including copper, bronze, brass and iron.
