THE KEMPER FROSTI® TAP

The Outside Tap That Cannot Freeze

Providing an innovative solution to protect your home from frozen outdoor taps… and protecting you via Legionella Prevention.

Don’t be left out in the cold!

Introducing the small addition to your home that makes a BIG difference.

The innovative Kemper Frosti® Tap is designed to protect you from the costly expense of burst pipes and the dangerous health effects of stagnant water.

The potential volume of water that can escape from a burst pipe is 400 litres in just one hour. That’s the equivalent of two bath tubs. And nobody can afford that kind of loss.

This amount is even more significant for second or multiple home owners, where properties may remain unoccupied for long periods of time. If one of these empty properties has a leak, a potential of 9,600 litres of water could be lost.

The installation of a Frosti® Tap will prevent the freezing that leads to pipes bursting, saving you money and hassle.

Frost Proof and Hygienic

Unlike regular outdoor taps the Frosti® tap is specially designed to seal off within the warm bricked area of the building.

When the tap is turned off it fully drains. This simple innovation ensures that no water is left in the tap or pipe when it is not being used, meaning there is nothing left to freeze.

Not Just For Winter

Outdoor taps can contain a water volume of more than 150 ml. If this water remains in the tap for days or weeks, germ growth is inevitable. With the Frosti®, residual water exposed to the risk of germ growth is removed from the tap, preventing contamination of drinking water all year-round!

The Frosti® purges the water out of the pipe and the tap, leaving no water to freeze. The automatic draining function reliably protects the proven Frosti® tap from freezing, and the consequential water damage, as well as preventing germ growth – making it twice as safe.

The Operating Principle

  1. When fully open, the water flows through the drain housing completely
  2. When closed, the water drains fully out of the tap. This prevents the tap from freezing and avoids water damage.
  3. Since the tap drains fully there is no risk of germ growth

The product is designed in such a way that the check valve is installed within the “thermal envelope” of the building. Once the tap is shut off *closing the check valve* the water automatically drains out of the pipe and tap itself. It’s a free-flow design, so there are no pockets for any water to sit in, stagnate and freeze. Therefore, no insulation is required.

The Products

The FROSTI® -PLUS is designed for new build projects and can be installed after the completion of the outside wall.
The FROSTI
®  is factory pre-assembled tap for fast and simple installation on completed projects or retro fitting to existing buildings
