PCL’S New Push Button Safety Coupling is Made in Sheffield with the Strength of Steel

Product launch reinforces commitment to UK manufacturing

Pneumatics expert PCL is proud to reinforce its commitment to UK manufacturing and its home city’s history of steelmaking with the launch of the UK Standard Push Button Safety Coupling.

Offering the same high quality for which PCL’s products are renowned worldwide, the new improved “Made in Sheffield” safety coupling has been modernised for even greater performance.

Boasting a stylish, lightweight and durable composite body and hardened, machined steel parts, it can be identified as a true PCL product by its blue button and ring.

With the prime focus on safety, the coupling provides a two-stage, self-venting release. This fully vents the system on first press, then releases the adaptor on the second one, eliminating the dangers of hose whip to create a safe compressed air environment.

Design engineered and assembled at PCL’s state-of-the-art production facility in Sheffield, this push button coupling is a prime example of PCL’s manufacturing expertise. PCL is so confident in the quality of this new UK product, PCL is offering a 5-year warranty, in line with its existing core line of couplings.

“Our new “Made in Sheffield” UK Standard Push Button Coupling has the PCL DNA running through it, from its guaranteed high performance to the distinctive, stylish design,” said Product Manager Simon Alexander.

“Its introduction is customer-led and created with the professional in mind, and the company has made significant investment into its development and assembly here in Sheffield. The result is an advanced and innovative new product which is a must-have for everybody’s toolbox.”

Managing Director Lee Wright said: “The new UK Standard Push Button Safety Coupling builds on our already exceptional range of couplings and is another example of what PCL does so well.

“We are incredibly proud that PCL offers the only safety coupling to be made in the UK. As a company founded in Sheffield 85 years ago, we remain committed to our roots whilst developing products that meet and exceed the needs of our customers, with safety of paramount importance.

The premium quality yet cost-effective UK Standard Push Button Safety Coupling is suitable for use with UK Standard Adaptors and enhances PCL’s core line of couplings – Airflow, Vertex and XF-Euro. Also designed and manufactured to exacting standards in the UK, these higher quality fittings all feature a blue band so that customers can instantly identify them, feeling safe in the knowledge that if it has a blue band, it is a genuine “Made in Sheffield” product from PCL.
