Default Poly pipe fitting question

I need a 4-way fitting for 25mm poly pipe but the local retic specialists
say that none are made. I can get T-s but I'd need two in a cumbersome
arrangement to do what I want, so a 4-way is worth pursuing. Does anyone
know of any links to manufacturers of Poly fittings? I've googled it but
turned up only one manufacturer and lots of academic papers on water use so
far.
TIA

Vinidex and Hardy Pope both list them, just the retailers that don't stock them.

Plastic Plumbing & Irrigation Supplies also have them in there catalogue

You've got me!

I can't find a 4-way in the Vinidex other than a Rural Cross, which comes
with a threaded hole for an outlet right in the middle. Can't find a cross
in ordinary poly. Plasticplumbing was a site I checked and couldn't find
any cross or 4-way - found the site extremely frustrating while I was
blundering my way around also.

Couldn't find Hardy Pope, but did discover (if I am correct) that they are
now called Toro Australia - couldn't find a 25mm poly cross in there either.

Now I'm really confused. I think you're correct about the fact that they
exist and it is just the retailers that don't carry them. Someone must have
asked for them before now. If there are any additional hints, I'd be glad
to hear them. I really don't want to do the 2 x three-way tees because that
will involve snipping and then later reconnecting a solenoid - ordinarily
that's ok but I am working right at the very end of a l-o-n-g line of cable
here and don't want to interfere with the line here if I can help it.
