connection between iron and plastic pipes

i would like to connect a galvanized iron pipe with a plastic one and continue with plastic pipe and fittings (T fittings and so on).
does exist a fitting without soldering that i can put in the wall without fear of leaking?

You need to get your galvanized pipe to a fitting in the line so you can thread a plastic male adaptor into and run from there.

Do not use female adaptors in plastic; they are notorious for cracking. I would leave the transition to plastic in an open, accessible place.
