Raccords Express originated from France, or "Express couplings", is in general part of the family of couplings with unified claws.
Symmetric couplings with claws are light-weighted, easy to operate and cost-saving to replace. They are ideal for connecting and disconnecting water hoses swiftly and safely so that they are widely used in applications like agriculture, gardening or contructions.
Raccords Express consist of couplings by hose shank, couplings by thread inside or outside, caps.
Forging can produce a piece that is stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part. As the metal is shaped during the forging process, its internal grain deforms to follow the general shape of the part.
As a result, the grain is continuous throughout the part, giving rise to a piece with improved strength characteristics.
When assembled with claw clamping in the hose the fitting can stop at the bridge. Stronger rigidity is acquired with the sided twi-bridges.
