FlashShield™ is CSA design certified to ANSI LC1 for “Fuel Gas Piping Systems Using Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST)” and ICC-ES PMG LC1027 for protective jacketed CSST. CSST supplies natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LP gas) to appliances. Simple hand tools such as tubing cutters, wrenches and the Jacket Stripping Tool are all that are needed to work with the FlashShield components. FlashShield is a reliable, cost-effective system that can be installed in all modes of construction: residential, commercial and industrial; new construction and retrofits.

FlashShield is a patent-pending metallically shielded flexible gas piping system designed to create a lightning-resistant system. We started with a unique layer of metal shield, which is designed to dissipate heat and electricity. Then we placed the shield between two jackets of semi-conductive polymer. To complete the system, we redesigned our fittings to ensure seamless continuity with the shield. XR3 fittings are designed with a patent pending feature that contours the metal shield. This creates electrical continuity throughout the system. The FlashShield system eliminates the manufacturer’s requirement for direct bonding. The XR3 fitting requires minimal torque for easy fitting installation. With no o-rings or gaskets, the reusable brass components provide a reliable metal-to-metal gas-tight seal. Recognized as a fuel gas piping material, FlashShield CSST listed to ANSI LC1 for “Fuel Gas Piping Systems Using Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST)” and ICC-ES PMG LC1027 for protective jacketed CSST.
