New functions, new installation advantages, proven gunmetal.
How can the KEMPER frost-proof outdoor valve be improved even further?
We discussed this question with experienced plumbers.
With those who can also report on adverse installation situations, critical end users, improper handling and "thieves in the neighbourhood".
From the insights gained, we developed many problem-solving ideas and just as many new functions and improvements
KEMPER Frost-proof outdoor valves
KEMPER FROSTI®-PLUS, the assembly kit
The assembly kit for prefabricated installation facilitates the assembly of the valve already during the building shell phase. The drain housing is mounted after completing the outside wall. The frost-proof outdoor FROSTI®-PLUS valve Figure 574 is also available in combination with the KEMPER KHS Floor Box Figure 640 50 as the KEMPER Frosti Hygiene Set Figure 640 60.
- Now only one length for all common depths (for wall thicknesses up to 415 mm**)
- Continuous adjustment to the exterior wall thicknesses (from 150-655 mm)
** for surface-mounted construction
KEMPER FROSTI® pre-assembled at the factory Figure 577 02
The factory pre-assembled valve for subsequent, fast and simple construction on previously finished outside walls. With a total external diameter of only 26.4 mm and movable rosette.
- For wall thicknesses of 150 - 492 mm, can be extended as needed at the construction site
- Universal connection R 1/2“ and Cu pipe 15 mm for soldering and pressing

The operating principle
KEMPER FROSTI® is completely opened with only 2 revolutions. The drain housing is flooded. The hydrodynamic design of the valve achieves an above-average drainage capacity of over 40 l per minute (at 1 bar flow pressure). That means there is sufficient water supply even with long water hoses. The fully-automatic drainage after the stop process prevents the valve from freezing. Water damages are prevented.
Stagnation does not arise in a drained valve, so there is no germ growth.
