Case Studies

Although we are well known for our Underfloor Heating, our passion is the application of manifolds to plumbing and heating systems. The Site References here are all related to their installation and use.

The use of manifolds is a change in the working practice of an M&E installer. It gives distinct advantages to the installer. It makes his life easier on site – a faster, more efficient installation technique. With a manifold based system, whether for drinking water or wall hung radiators, at the heart of the system, the plumbing network changes radically.

Manifolds enable point to point plumbing. Great phrase, but what does it mean? It means continuous pipe runs, with no joints, from the manifold to the point of use – whether that is a radiator or a tap. No joints between those two points means two things – no places to leak other than at origination and termination, generally both accessible – and without tees or elbows, reduced costs in product and time. It can be up to 40% quicker to install using a manifold based technique – but it needs a little planning and you won’t see the benefit first time out. Once the product is installed, the next advantage is in commissioning – depending on how feature rich the manifold product is, you can carry out a lot of your work from the one location, like lockshield balancing for example. There is a long list of benefits.

Why don’t you look at the site references below?

Then if you think it is worth a try, ring us on 01993 824900 and get more details.

Then make a trial site installation. We would be happy to consider subsidising the first one.  
This is not clever product, its smart installing.
