What is the Class Action about?
The lawsuit claims that CSST poses an unreasonable risk of fire due to lightning strikes. Plaintiffs allege that the CSST tubing is not thick enough to prevent damage to the CSST in the event of a lightning strike and that Defendants failed to warn consumers about these alleged dangers.
The Settling Defendants deny these allegations and assert that their CSST is safe if properly installed in accordance with local codes and the manufacturers’ instructions.
Is there more than one brand of CSST involved?
Yes. The CSST installed on your property may have been manufactured by Titeflex, Ward, OmegaFlex, or Parker Hannifin.
Titeflex’s CSST is stamped with the mark “GASTITE.”
Ward’s CSST is stamped with the mark “WARDFLEX.”
OmegaFlex’s CSST is stamped with the marks “TRACPIPE” or “COUNTERSTRIKE.”
Parker Hannifin’s CSST is stamped with the mark “PARFLEX.”
