Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9848210A1] A pipe fitting for installation in an aperture (21) defined by a wall comprises a generally tubular body (1) having a lower end portion (2) which is insertable through the aperture (21). An expandable annular sealing member (17) is disposed around the tubular body (1). In its unexpanded state the sealing member (17) is insertable through the aperture (21) but in its expanded state it has a maximum diameter greater than the diameter of the aperture (21). The sealing member (17) is designed so that it is substantially unstressed in the circumferential direction when expanded.
