Hose Tap Box – 500 Copper Tube

From £145.00 £174.00 inc. vat


Compact wall mounted stainless steel box with spherical type tap and hose connection. The tap is foam insulated and therefore offers reasonable frost protection. The Tap Box has a hinged lid, which can be padlocked closed. A hose shield is available as an extra, which improves the frost protection and prevents unauthorised removal of the hose or DB Pipe Interrupter. The Tap Box is available to suit most configurations. Model HUTB is rear entry, where the copper tube supplied passes through the wall. This arrangement offers good frost protection since none of the pipe is exposed. The factory-fitted 500 mm length of copper tube is cut to length after installation. This model is also available in 22 mm, which has a larger tap and box, plus a higher flow rate and better frost protection. For new installations where at least 30 mm of copper tube is already protruding from the external wall, it is possible to fit the Tap Box model HUTB after removing the copper tube supplied.


Tamperproof and frost resistant external hose union tap, housed in a stainless steel box.
