    4 reasons to use press-fittings on “live” construction sites

    Well over half the work being carried out by heating engineers and contractors is on “live” sites, where traditional jointing methods can add extra workload in terms of paperwork and meeting health and safety requirements. Switching to modern press-fit jointing methods minimises on-site risks and means contractors can get on with the job in hand safely and quickly.

    Stainless Steel: From 19th century invention to 21st century innovation

    History suggests that Sheffield born Harry Brearley was the first to discover stainless steel over 100 years ago.    Initially created to be used in the production of small arms to prolong the life of barrels which were eroding away too quickly, Brearley soon discovered its many other advantages.

    Like Two Peas in a Pod

    Much has been written about the merits of metal push and press fit jointing systems, and there’s been a notable rise in the number of solutions being installed that now benefit from a combined approach. Bearing this in mind, we thought it might be helpful to find out a bit more about the reasons the combined approach is gaining favour, so we asked Janette Henwood, our market manager for push-fit systems for her take on the situation.

    Pushing the Boundaries - Tectite Receives BSI Kitemark Standard

    Pegler Yorkshire has raised the bar by being the first manufacturer to achieve the prestigious BSI Kitemark across its range of push-fit fittings. Received for its Tectite Classic, Pro and Sprint ranges from 15 to 54mm the BS EN 1254-6:2012 certification assures plumbing and heating professionals of the quality and value of this product range. The range will now boast the esteemed Kitemark which demonstrates regular independent batch testing and auditing to assure the integrity of the products. Eleanor Johnson, Push Fittings Product Manager for Pegler Yorkshire commented: “Receiving this endorsement from the world renowned BSI can only serve to reaffirm our commitment to customers for high performance and quality by providing the best products on the market.  And, to be the first manufacturer to attain this certification supports our stance of continually pushing the boundaries of connect and control systems and solutions that provide tangible benefits to not only our customers but the built environment as a whole.” The Tectite range of fittings stretches across a global market and is used by plumbing and heating professionals operating within the domestic and commercial sectors.  Tectite has become the choice product for many installers due to its unique and unrivalled features such as  grip first grab rings which prevent any risk of full bore blow offs, pre-lubricated seals for reduced insertion force and a cooper, DZR brass or stainless bodies.    The range is suitable for jointing with a wide range of tube materials, including copper, flexible metal, PEX and PB and a variety of steel including stainless and carbon.  Additional features include fixed non-demountable and demountable options. Furthermore, Tectite offers speed of installation and therefore provides installed cost savings, it negates the need for a hot works permit which also saves time immediately after installation as the Tectite system is intrinsically clean, there is no need for adhesive curing or long flushing times.   Eleanor continued: “The Pegler Yorkshire name is already synonymous with quality however, Kitemark certification for Tectite provides independent recognition that we strive to deliver high quality assured products, systems and solutions.  Our commitment to meet current and future standards is on-going therefore guaranteeing that we will continually strive to attain the latest and highest standards.”   “When specifying or installing a product it is imperative that customers understand the quality, and its intrinsic value.  Our research has shown that manufacturer’s guarantees coupled with recognised and highly acclaimed industry standards instantly reassure customers of the quality and reliability of a product,” concluded Eleanor. Last year the company also received a special certificate from the BSI for having held the BSI Kitemark for over 70 years, one of only two companies in the world to do so.

    Bespoke Valve Configurations On Site As Early As Seven Days

    For any building service contractor, the key to a successful project is the efficiency of the installation – in short, time spent on planning and onsite.  Leading Integrated piping solutions manufacturer, Pegler Yorkshire, has developed a unique service that delivers bespoke valve arrangements (modular valves solutions) for fan coils in a significantly reduced lead time from the merchant’s order. Contractors looking for a fan coil modular valve solution (MVS) require the typical questions answering such as performance in application, reliability, and ease of installation and, whilst they are essential:  service, lead times and planning are seen as after thoughts but do have a major impact on projects if not met. “The real issues for contractors are providing a bespoke modular valve solution designed to specific drawings and required in a realistic time frame,” commented Sindar Singh, Climate Control Manager Pegler Yorkshire.  “The unique service we have developed in-conjunction with our technical team incorporates a process to evaluate, (take off drawings) offer guidance and quotation in rapid time and, we would also support the delivery schedule lead times. However, once an order is received from the merchant, we can actually deliver a bespoke product as early as seven working days.” The process works by uploading drawings for take off preparation, Pegler Yorkshire’s technical team can offer direct guidance on optimisation for efficiency and the most cost effectiveness for your proposal.  Your preferred merchant receives the quote and once the order is received it will be fulfilled in line with the installation schedule. This unique service provides a bespoke solution made up of a variety of interlinked multi-functional valves and components, manufactured from DZR brass and, includes intuitive handles, union joints to allow valve orientation to be changed onsite and an additional test point to allow signals to be measured across the coil.  The complete unit allows connection, regulation, isolation, flushing and draining for fan coils.  Impressively, it allows connection to a variety of centres with its flexible offset connector.   Furthermore, as the leader of adapted valve technology Pegler Yorkshire has continued this bespoke choice solution on the MVS unit with a range of Xpress, Tectite or both fan coil or system connections. This solution provides pressured tested units that reduces on-site assembly requirements with a simple completion of four joints (traditional methods would require a minimum of eight).  Sindar concluded: “Consultants and contractors are already excited about the opportunities this solution presents.  For consultants; known envelope dimensions allow for greater space usage, known performance characteristic across the MVS allows for accurate pump sizing and therefore reduces any specification errors.  Whereas contractors benefit from a reduction in on site labour time and costs as only four connections are required, standard components are individually and collectively tested, it eliminates the need for a costly on-site prefabrication area and also reduces administrative duties plus delivery costs. “All in all, there are endless benefits to this solution and no disadvantages.  We believe this will be the future of valve selection meaning that fan coil applications will be become much more efficient and cost effective.”

    PEGLER YORKSHIRE – FIRST TO INTRODUCE LARGE SCALE PRESS FITTINGS INTO UK MARKETPLACE

    Pegler Yorkshire has extended its stainless steel XPress Press Fit range of fittings to included sizes up to 168mm - a first for the UK market.  The two new additions complement the XPress range offering a complete system from 12mm through to 168mm.  “We are constantly looking at what the market wants and addressing needs of specifiers and installers.  We noticed a gap in the UK market for larger sized press fittings and have introduced these new sizes (140mm and 168mm) which allow greater flexibility on large scale installations,” said Amy Sedgwick, Press Systems Market Manager for Pegler Yorkshire. The XPress stainless steel range is a world class fitting that can now be fitted up to 25 bar, subject to application submittal and prior approval.  It boasts a myriad of advantages including; no requirement for threading machinery or grooving which is labour intensive and costly, it also negates the need for a hot works permit as no heat or jointing compounds are needed to complete the jointing procedure.  In addition, XPress benefits from a unique Leak Before Press feature which provides instant identification of joints that have been assembled correctly but mistakenly left unpressed. For use on hot and cold water systems, chilled water services and fire protection the new additions to the XPress Stainless Steel range are simply compressed onto 316 or 304 tube using the AC0401 press tool and slings.  There is also flange adaptors available for Pegler Yorkshire valves to complete the system.  “Specifiers can now include these in their plans meaning that a full system can be installed using XPress which is WRAS approved and comes fully backed by the Pegler Yorkshire guarantee,” added Amy.  “We are delighted to be the first company in the UK to be offering these large scale fittings which make specifying a whole lot easier.” For further information about the XPress call 01302 560 560 or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk.

    PEGLER YORKSHIRE CELEBRATES SUCCESS AT ASIAN EXPO

    Pegler Yorkshire celebrates success after exhibiting at theBMAM Expo Asia 2016 for the first time. Building Maintenance and Facilities Management (BMAM) is a leading international exhibition for the Asian build market held in Bangkok, Thailand.  In its 9th year the exhibition attracts over 10,000 trade visitors looking to discover the latest technology, products and solutions for construction and maintenance. Since making the decision to open a sales and technical support office in Hong Kong earlier this year, Pegler Yorkshire has seen significant growth in brand awareness and interest in its light weight XPress Sprinkler system and metal push-fit fittings in particular. Joshua Collins, Sales Director of Pegler Yorkshire Hong Kong division commented: “BMAM is the leading international exhibition of building maintenance and facilities management for the Asian market and because the business is increasing its export to that area, it made perfect sense to attend. “We are extremely pleased to have spoken to so many contractors and engineers interested in the latest plumbing innovations from Pegler Yorkshire Group. This was highlighted with the success of Tectite Push Fit and Xpress Press Fittings with immediate project successes into renovation markets in Thailand.” The Asia market as a whole is currently experiencing healthy growth in construction which is evenly spread across residential, industrial and infrastructural projects. It is expected that almost all Asian countries are to increase their budgets for infrastructure in the next five years. “Pegler Yorkshire have a strong brand name in Asia and now, having an office located in Hong Kong, it enables the business to grow and provide increased support for customers. The Hong Kong office is not only Sales and Marketing but also technical support with our in-house engineering team available to support technical queries and training on site or over the phone which is another added value to customers.” concluded Josh.

    Pegler Yorkshire Completes Static Valve Offering

    To ensure heating and ventilation systems work to their optimum efficiency valves are a key element.  Pegler Yorkshire with its foundations held in the development and manufacturing of valves, is increasing its Static Valve offering which incorporates ultra low and medium flow static products to compliment all flow variables. “Standard practice of installed HVAC systems is to ensure minimal loss of hydraulic flow.  Therefore, regulating flow and keeping pressure loss to a minimum is essential in the optimum efficiency of a system,” said Sindar Singh, Climate Control Market Manager for Pegler Yorkshire.  “With the expansion of our 1260 static balancing valve range we are confident that all flow requirements and system optimisation, which includes the conservation of energy, are covered within the Ballorex portfolio.” Within the Ballorex Commercial Valves range the Pegler 1260 fixed commissioning double regulating valves incorporate a fixed plate orifice for accurate flow measurement and regulation. The design includes
an oblique pattern body and easily accessible test points for use during commissioning. The range includes combined commissioning, double regulating valves and metering stations. The key features offered by the fixed range of 1260, 1200 and 1250 DZR brass bodied valves include, PN20 rated, non-rising stem, double regulating feature on spindle and a hand wheel incorporating position indicate 00-79 all boast full WRAS approval.  In addition, they are available in a variety of end connections including threaded, push-fit, press-fit and union. Pegler Yorkshire is aware that building system optimisation benefits the full spectrum of those involved from design consultants, specifiers, contractors, through to facility users.  However, as a manufacturer of plumbing and heating systems and components for over 100 years, and as part of its ongoing process to deliver tangible connect and control solutions, it has recently altered its approach to the convoluted process of valve choice.  The company has developed straightforward valve selection process targeting ‘application areas’ which ensures the right valve is chosen to support function, size, performance and optimisation, in essence, helping the building perform and in turn helping reduce energy costs.  The three key areas are identified as Source – which is focused around plant / boiler centres, Network which encompasses the distribution of heating and potable building systems, and finally the Zone that is the occupied function zone, such as an apartment, office or ward where the heat or water is emitted.   We can safely say that requirements for the Source area would be centred on large sized valves, in some instances up to DN600, which provide regulating and isolating functions from the heat source into the first part of the network.  Within the Network area valves are used to control water flow and balance the heat and cooling distribution to different locations.  These valves ensure the correct flow rate is supplied to differing parts of the building therefore providing optimum energy efficiency and comfort.  The next point of use is classed as the Zone area, for example heating, this consists of pre-set  valves for either panels or radiators through to modular valves units used on fan coil units, these types of valves allow control through heat/flow output therefore offering precise controlled comfort. “The additional valves incorporated into the Ballorex portfolio will mostly be used within the Network application area.  The additions to the range mean a total control solution can be sourced from one manufacturer giving greater reassurance and more continuity,” concluded Sindar.

    Put An End To ‘Pressing’ Jobs With A Combined Toolkit

    As the rise of more modern jointing techniques such as push and press continues leading manufacturer, Pegler Yorkshire, has launched a combined toolkit that gives installers the right equipment to speed up installations.  Phill Jackson, marketing and business development director said: “Each installation brings its own challenges but the key is being able to adapt.  Our newly launched toolkit provides all the essential equipment for installers to be able to adapt their installation as the job dictates whether that is via push, press or a combined approach.”  The Pegler Yorkshire Toolkit includes everything an installer needs for a push or press system installation; a REMS 3-35mm pipe cutter suitable for Copper, Carbon and Stainless, 15, 22 and 28mm Jaws, 15-108mm XPress Copper Depth Gauge, Tectite Sprint and Tectite Classic Depth Gauge and Deburrer, 15mm Multi-layer Tube Straightener and 10-28mm tube cutter for use with PEX and Multi-layer tube.  In addition, there are demount clips, mini press tool, spare battery and dri-slide. Phill continued: “Today’s installers are well aware of the benefits a heat free installation can bring and are in tune with alternating their methods depending on the job.  Many are happy to use a press system until it gets to a confined space when switching to a push method will make life easier. Both methods provide excellent sealing as you would expect from a quality fitting.”  Those are primarily found in metal fittings – which are a product of choice of those installers who demand high performing and reliable fittings.  Whether push or press a quality metal fitting can be easily identified via its inherent attributes such as Pegler Yorkshire’s XPress unique Leak Before Press design allows installers to instantly identify unpressed joints and Tectite’s patented TectSEAL, directional seals pre-lubricated for reduced insertion force and the provision of a reliable seal.  Phill concluded: “The new Pegler Yorkshire Toolkit provides those installers already combining metal push and press technology with a comprehensive and handy toolbox full with everything needed to complete an installation.  Yet it can also be a great starter kit for those that are yet to use one or both methods.” Additionally, Pegler Yorkshire has also recently launched an Installer Club which offers cash back or money off products.

    V850 Gate Valve Opens Up a Plethora of Opportunities

    Pegler Yorkshire continues its drive to further enhance its valve portfolio and support its customers’ objectives of system optimisation.  The new V850 ductile iron gate valve has been introduced to the company’s commercial valve offering and adds a solution for potable water applications. Gate valves, primarily used to allow the flow of liquids, ensure very low friction loss and provide a high flow path when in the fully opened position.  The new V850 is characterised as having a non-rising stem which supports ease if operation in confined spaces.  The WRAS approved V850 from Pegler Yorkshire boasts numerous benefits over other gate valve types as it is ideal for isolating pipelines that transport potable water.  Its design incorporates a stainless steel stem providing resistance to corrosion in addition its discs are coated in a EPDM material to reduce exposure of fluid to metal surfaces.  The valve is coated in an Epoxy paint to prevent direct contact with the ductile iron body and so avoiding any contamination of the water supply.  The V850, available in size DN65 to DN300, also benefits from a non-rising stem which combined with a wheel head operation gives optimal functionality.  Furthermore, the V850 Ductile Iron flanged isolating gate valve is supported by a host of standards including the BS EN1171:2002, BS EN1092-2 PN16 (flanges) and most importantly the V850 PN16 gate valve has WRAS approved product status. In support of the industry’s drive to provide optimal building efficiency Pegler Yorkshire has developed a straightforward valve selection process for specifiers and contractors alike.  The process targets application areas to ensure the right valve is chosen to support function, size performance and optimisation. The three key areas are identified as Source – which is focused around plant / boiler centres, Network which encompasses the distribution of heating and potable building systems, and finally the Zone that is the occupied function zone, such as an apartment, office or ward where the heat or water is emitted.  The Pegler V850 gate valve would perform best within the Source area and can provide an ideal solution to a number of flow control applications.  And, with a working temperature of -10 ° C to 80 ° C this PN16 rated valve can certainly provide optimal performance. Barrie Plant, Valves Market Manager for Pegler Yorkshire commented: “Valves are such an important part of any flow control system, it is imperative the best valve is chosen for the each and every application.  The ‘Area’ system we have developed not only gives specifiers and contractors the confidence in choosing the best valve for the job but also provides reassurance in the quality of the product they are choosing by having the backing of the Pegler Yorkshire brand, a name synonymous with centuries of quality UK manufacture and expertise.” The V850 forms part of the ever increasing range of WRAS approved cast and ductile commercial valves that include Ferrous V850DI V905/G/906/G CI and non ferrous Ball, Gate, Spring Check, Pressure Reducing and Thermostatic Mixing Valves.

    Pegler Yorkshire Extends Commercial Tap Range

    Performa the popular commercial tap range from Pegler Yorkshire has undergone a major design and functionality overhaul to ensure modern water saving efficiency and design credentials are met. The range has seen amendments to the classic design as well as the range extended to provide further options for commercial specifiers, plumbers and end users. “Our Performa range continues to be hugely popular in educational, healthcare, leisure and commercial settings and these new additions will only serve to reinforce its market position,” said Mike Johnson Taps and Washroom Manager Pegler Yorkshire. “Design is equally important as water saving and durability, and our enhanced Performa range delivers an aesthetically pleasing family of taps along with more practical considerations.” The Performa range now includes new design Non-Concussive high performance tap which benefits from a flow rating of 3.8 litres/min whilst the auto shut-off function gives 12-15 seconds of free flowing water.  The inner cartridge has been redesigned to provide a smoother operation and easier push mechanism. It also benefits from a multi-directional filter which is fully adjustable providing a flow of water suitable for a range of sinks and applications.  The new Performa Sensor taps from Pegler Yorkshire also benefit from the new sleek design and incorporate an improved performance via an integrated solenoid valve with filter.  These are available in two forms, an Infrared version and a Capacitive version that utilises the most advanced technology to give more controlled sensitivity. Capacitive technology is impervious to light and it is activated by the user being within a certain proximity of the tap, then once the user is out of proximity, the tap deactivates. The Performa Sensor taps have a maximum of 30 seconds activation time to prevent vandalism, and furthermore a newly angled spout eliminates any stagnant water within the tap system protecting the inner workings and provides user safety. “We want to encourage specifiers and contractors to choose taps that allow the use of water to be controlled, supporting water saving and limits the need for direct contact with them, minimising the transference of bacteria and infection.   It was important that we supported the market demand for this with a stylish design,” said Mike. “In a commercial washroom setting these are vital considerations and we are proud that our new Performa range encompasses all aspects of these requirements for today’s market trends.” Other aspects to the Performa range include healthcare sector specific taps with anti-microbial properties to aid infection control and lever handles to negate the need for dexterous operation.

    Tectite makes plumbers’ lives easier – and slashes installation times

    Rigorous testing has shown that Pegler Yorkshire’s innovative Tectite push-fit system can cut installation times by up to 75% without sacrificing durability and versatility. In separate trials, world-renowned construction business Balfour Beatty and market-leading pipework company MEP Solutions compared the Tectite solution with two more traditional methods, namely threaded joint and press-fit. Using Tectite fittings, MEP’s installers were able to create a prefabricated module containing three separate services four times faster than when using the threaded joint method. Tectite’s flexible, easy-to-use system also proved twice as quick as press-fit. What’s more, Tectite passed MEP’s durability examination with flying colours. The module survived a 500-mile trip around the roads of the UK without picking up a single leak –  despite minimal supports being attached in construction to ensure it would receive rough treatment. Balfour Beatty’s results were similarly impressive, with the Tectite push-fit system cutting the installation of a similar module from 1 hour 17 minutes using press-fit to 1 hour flat.  “When we were asked to create a prefabricated module using only Pegler Yorkshire Tectite fittings, it was a relief to discover that these were readily available to use,” said Ray Barclay at MEP.  “Also noticeable was the consistency of the fitting sizes – this makes life easier for offsite manufacture.  “The ability to simply pick up a part and push it in place reduces the need for any of the typical jointing methods, which not only increases the speed of production but also reduces injuries and eradicates crimping errors and the cost of buying and maintaining crimping tools.” As well as reducing installation times, Tectite brings many advantages over traditional methods.  Its wide range of fittings is compatible with a variety of materials – including copper tube, PEX and PB pipe, carbon and stainless steel – and its valves can be rotated for ease of access. Some demountable Tectite fittings can even be swapped out once installed, thus future-proofing any installations and massively reducing the cost of repairs.  And, because Tectite fittings are so easy and safe to use, only one installer is required, increasing productivity and freeing up staff to work on other jobs.

    Lincolnshire Hospital Installs Antimicrobial Copper Taps As Part of A New Patient Safety Initiative

    Pegler Yorkshire has supported an  initiative by a leading healthcare specialist promoting the use of antimicrobial copper in healthcare establishments. Michael Oko – ENT Consultant and Clinical Lead, and Department of Health Advisor on Obstructive Sleep Apnoea – has championed the replacement of key high-touch surfaces with antimicrobial copper equivalents in a project at Lincolnshire’s Pilgrim Hospital. Initially, taps, bed rails, cabinet handles, chair arms, grab rails, hand rails, light switches and coat hooks were commissioned and with these now installed, his intention is to replace more items and roll out the copper upgrade throughout the hospital. “Studies into the effectiveness of copper show greater than 80% less contamination on copper surfaces than non-copper equivalents.  It therefore proves how effective copper can be in addressing the problem of antibiotic resistant bacteria. We are proud to support projects like this knowing that we are helping to reduce the number of healthcare associated infections in our hospitals,” said Phill Jackson Marketing & Business Development Director Pegler Yorkshire.  Using the company’s expertise and knowledge gained through various scientific studies, and inline with the Health Protection Agency (HPA), Pegler Yorkshire has developed a range of Antimicrobial Copper Taps that are capable of continuously killing pathogenic microbes even in between cleans. “We continually engineer new and innovative products to ensure they are in line with, and often surpass industry standards and this is reflected in the design of our Antimicrobial Copper Tap range,” said Phill. “Replacing the surfaces most often touched by staff, patients and visitors with antimicrobial copper equivalents will help reduce the risk of infections spreading via these surfaces," said Mr Oko. "It can be used as an adjunct to other infection control measures – such as regular hand washing and surface cleaning and disinfecting – to improve patient safety. “Reducing the rate of infections means a substantial reduction in a patient’s length of stay, a reduction in their mortality risk and a reduction in overall treatment costs. Antimicrobial copper surfaces make sense from a patient safety point of view as well as a financial one.” Andrew Cross director at ACT Surfaces who worked on the Pilgrim project explained, “In any clinical environment, certain surfaces will be touched maybe hundreds of times, by dozens of people, every day and these are the key touch surfaces to identify as they will offer the most benefit when replaced with antimicrobial copper equivalents. “ACT Surfaces works with clinical teams - from cleaner to consultant - to identify the ‘problem’ touch surfaces in a given facility; upgrading these to antimicrobial copper reduces the infection risk to patients and yields significant clinical savings. For this project, we invited Brass Age in Norwich to fabricate & supply the bespoke items like the bed rails, grab rails and over-bed table from their VETOBAC Antimicrobial Copper range and to manage the project’s completion. The range of Antimicrobial Copper taps from respected industry professionals Pegler Yorkshire supports this initiative and helps drives the campaign for copper touch surfaces forwards, in both NHS healthcare as well as other medical establishments across the UK.” Further information about the anti-microbial properties of Copper can be found visiting http://antimicrobialcopper.com/uk

    Pegler Yorkshire Launches New Generation Stainless Steel Tube to UK Market

    As an innovator in the world of plumbing and heating solutions Pegler Yorkshire has announced the launch of its XPress SS630 tube - a new grade of stainless steel tube that benefits from equivalent strength and corrosion properties as the 316 and provides a new choice for the commercial marketplace. The new grade of tube is already widely used across Europe because of its unique qualities.  Its high Chromium content and presence of Molybdenum, amongst other alloys has meant the price sensitive Nickel element is no longer a requirement, which provides huge cost savings when compared to the other grades of stainless steel already used in the market. Amy Sedgwick, Press Systems Market Manager for Pegler Yorkshire, commented: “This is a great innovation that now allows contractors the choice to choose stainless steel without having the restriction of cost.  More applications and alternative jointing methods can now also be achieved by using XPress SS630.  The XPress Stainless Steel systems are also eligible to apply for an extended system working pressure of up to 25 bar.”  With matching qualities to that of 316 the Xpress SS630 is set to be a serious contender in the tube market.  Its strong technical performance affords its use across a wide variety of building services and industrial applications meaning that projects including commercial heating and fire protection systems through to aggressive environmental applications, such as shipbuilding, can utilise this new grade of tube. XPress SS630 is available in sizes 15-54mm and 6m lengths and meets a wide range of approvals including several international standards for sprinklers (LPCB, FM) and shipbuilding (DNV, GL, RINA).  The presence of titanium gives the tube strength and formability which means that sizes up to 28mm can also be bent to suit. The SS650 range completes the tube offering up to 108mm. Forming part of the XPress portfolio this light weight, easy to handle tube supports the drive for more heat free installations through quality push-fit and press-fit technology.  It is compatible with the standard XPress Stainless Steel fittings range and benefits from a unique “Leak Before Press” (LBP) design which was developed as a final check to the system to provide instant identification of joints that have been assembled correctly but mistakenly left un-pressed. Plus the Tectite 316 push-fit range which includes a stainless steel grab ring which has been specifically developed to grip stainless steel tube without the need to for it to be scribed.  “With the price of stainless steel sometimes being prohibitive for some projects and contractors this does truly offer a hugely viable alternative,” continued Amy.  “We have listened to what our customers need and introduced this new grade of pipe which will provide the solution to a number of current market issues, not to mention suit a large range of applications.”

    Pegler Yorkshire Launches Essential Tool for HVAC Installers

    Pegler Yorkshire, UK manufacturer of plumbing and heating solutions, has brought to market a tool that no HVAC installer should be without!  The Tectite Tube Straightener exclusively supplied by the company has been launched for 15mm pipe sizes. Janette Henwood, Market Manager for Tectite Push Systems said: “The new Tectite Tube Straightener is a highly efficient lightweight handheld tool that can be used instead of a pipe decoiler.  HVAC installers will benefit greatly from having this in their toolbox, not only will their installation have a totally professional look but logistical pressures can be eased with the ability to purchase pipe coils but achieve the same result as straight lengths.” Flexible metal pipe from a coil can be straightened by hand or by placing on a level surface and manipulating.  However this method never gives a true straightened length and as such can make a job look untidy and reduce the speed of the liquid flowing through it. The solution now offered by Pegler Yorkshire is its 15mm Tectite Tube Straightener.  This handheld, compact lightweight tool allows pipe to be passed through its centre, by working it in both directions, the spiralling rollers will straighten and strengthen the pipe providing a professional looking and more efficient length. Janette concluded: “By using this tool installers are guaranteed a more professional looking pipe whilst potentially reducing the costs of materials and simplifying the installation process.” The Tectite Tube Straightener complements the highly engineered range of Tectite fittings, valves and flexible metal pipe that provide installers with a complete installation solution.  The Tectite range from Pegler Yorkshire is renowned for its highly versatile fittings that connect to a number of pipe materials that give installers swift, clean and high performing installations.

    Push and Press - Like Two Peas in a Pod

    While the plumbing industry continues to debate the merits of both push and press, there has been a noticeable rise in the amount of systems being installed that now benefit from a combined approach. It is clear that today’s installer is much more likely to opt for a system that provides cost and time saving benefits over traditional forms of jointing.  And, with the latest technological advancements in quality and range of fittings it is obvious why! Press Technology Press-fit has a reputation for being a high performing solution.  Since its inception in the late 1950’s its popularity has been paramount to the success of many projects.  Because there is no need to use heat and solder its is a very clean and fast jointing method.  It doesn’t leave carbon deposits or flux so there is less risk of corrosion and time required to flush the system. Push Technology On the other hand push-fit is relatively new in comparison – introduced back in the 1980’s it was originally classified as a light domestic solution used in conjunction with plastic piping.  But today’s metal fittings have advanced that much, push-fit is now being used on a full range of projects from small domestic to large scale commercial, including The Shard.  The technological improvements of push-fit fittings means they are now compatible with a variety of pipe materials and their range can easily dovetail with a wide choice from plastic to flexible metal, copper and even carbon steel. Push-fit offers similar advantages to that of press-fit.  As there is no heat required to seal the joint there is no need for a hot works permit which significantly reduces costs associated such as administration and insurance premiums.  Labour time saving is another distinct advantage, the process is faster and  there is no longer a requirement to stay on site for up to two hours following the use of heat as a precautionary measure to guard against fire . Another reason as to why these two alternative methods of jointing have been preferred is the issue of working in confined spaces.   It can be almost impossible to ensure that a joint is made correctly, when using traditional techniques, if access to it is restricted. If the blowtorch for example, cannot be passed around the fitting completely there is a risk that jointing is incomplete and a corresponding risk of leakage. Combination Modern systems have become much more advanced with highly engineered fittings that incorporate fail safe features such as the XPress unique Leak Before Press design, enables easy identification of unpressed joints and Tectite’s patented TectSEAL, directional seals pre-lubricated for reduced insertion force and the provision of a reliable seal. Installers have now discovered that a combination of these jointing methods can provide a total solution that is still less time consuming, safer than traditional methods and offers a robust system.

The i-temp can be used to upgrade many types of TRV and by allowing the temperature to be controlled in each room of the house can deliver savings of up to 30% on heating bills, while at the same time delivering the level of comfort required for every part of the home or work place. While i-temp remains the simple, yet intelligent PRC it was designed to be, Pegler Yorkshire now offers three new products to make i-temp even easier to use and extending its capabilities. Now available as part of the i-temp portfolio is a remote control, an innovative USB programming stick complete with software and a ‘window contact’ that automatically and remotely adjusts your i-temp, so you don’t have to. All of the new products can be used on their own, or combined for the ultimate in home heating control and energy saving technology. The development of an i-temp remote control is a natural progression and allows users to control the PRC temperature without leaving the comfort of their seat. Small, discreet and simple to use, the remote displays the current ambient temperature in the room you are in and allows you to increase or decrease the temperature accordingly. It is easy to use and as with all the new accessories, will work with multiple i-temp devices. Joining the remote control is a USB programming stick and software. The USB stick allows communication with the i-temp devices in the home but the real star of the show is the software, which allows the easy setting of a ‘heating profile’ for each i-temp – allowing for the quick and easy creation of heating programmes, direct from your PC. A variety of heating programmes can be generated and stored, allowing you to select and implement your favourite at the touch of a button Finally, the window contact is the icing on the cake, delivering all round management of home heating and energy loss, right down to detecting when a window has been opened or closed and informing the i-temp device which can then respond accordingly. The window contact epitomises the i-temp philosophy, by delivering energy saving in a simple, unobtrusive way. “When we launched i-temp it was a revolutionary product for the Terrier range and these new options make it accessory heaven for i-temp users everywhere,” said Pegler Yorkshire product market manager Sindar Singh. “i-temp is cost effective, easy to install and these new accessories make the system easer to use than ever, while delivering even greater energy efficiency.” Costing about £25, i-temp requires no complicated installation, and fits easily to most popular TRV’s and handy adaptors are included in the pack. The i-temp i30 PRC is suitable for vertical valves while the i35 is the choice for horizontal valves. Both are available with thermostatic valve bodies if required – making them the perfect choice for a new installation as well as an energy saving upgrade in an existing dwelling. Simplicity, as a first principle, is at the heart of the i-temp system. Many people will remember the complexity of some early domestic heating controls and rather than leave end users scratching their heads, the team at Pegler Yorkshire have designed the i-temp range around them. Programming has been greatly simplified and the new remote control for example uses only the basic buttons required to avoid any confusion and eliminate unnecessary and cumbersome complexity. “The new additions have been developed to be very easy to ‘pair’ with the i-temp PRC,” added Sindar. “For those who have used i-temp to delver energy savings already, these latest products have been designed to offer additional energy saving options. They can be installed in minutes, but will provide years of energy saving and heating control.” Aimed at delivering convenience and a simple way of saving energy and controlling heating without needing to touch the main boiler control, i-temp has found itself the perfect solution in both the domestic and commercial environment alike. It can play a significant role in reducing the carbon emission score in care homes, social housing and multiple apartments with a single heat source. The new accessories have just taken this to the next level. By recognising when a window has been opened and adjusting the heating accordingly, it will be clear how the window contact will quickly pay for itself in a care home and social housing environment, while the remote allows the user to adjust every room easily. These new i-temp upgrades will save everyone from home owners to maintenance manager’s time and money while the product’s existing high performance has led it to be the first PRC of its kind to be recognised as an Energy Saving Trust recommended product.

    Energy Saving Product that the Design Conscious Must Have

    With over 70 percent of UK households still not benefitting from the savings offered by thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs), leading UK manufacturer Pegler Yorkshire has put its knowledge and expertise to the test and developed a range of decorative TRVs which would appeal to the more design conscious consumer.“Research by TACMA, the controls association within BEAMA, (of which Pegler Yorkshire is a member) and the Energy Saving Trust, showed that 70% of UK homes do not have the minimum levels of controls installed meaning that a homeowner could save up to £409.00* in just twelve months with the installation of room thermostat and TRVs," said Sindar Singh, climate control market manager for Pegler Yorkshire.  “Yet still there are millions of UK households still not tuned into this cost effective way to save energy and ultimately money!“Our own research showed that homeowners have in the past opted for the more aesthetically pleasing manual valves, which, whilst they may look the part do not offer any energy saving benefits, meaning homeowners are missing out.  We have looked at the most popular designer radiators out there and developed a range of TRVs that compliment styles and materials whilst providing the all the benefits found with TRVs.”The range of three Décor valves manufactured under the renowned Terrier brand are great designs with a twist, and have been created to incorporate the most popular finishes of decorative radiators including white, anthracite and chrome.   They are sympathetic to the needs of both consumer and radiator style and provide a compact design incorporating all the attributes found by regular Terrier TRVs. As one of the most recognisable TRV brands on the market, the Terrier is very user friendly, with clear settings for efficiency and boasts an operational temperature range of 7°C to 28°C. A positive shut off has been incorporated to enable removal of radiators for decoration or maintenance - without the need for removing the thermostatic head and replacing with a manual cap. The Terrier Décor range of TRVs also carries Keymark approval from the EN215 Standard for quality and performance and an "A rating" from the TELL scheme provides a further European seal of approval.Sindar continued: “As a renowned UK manufacturer we are continually pushing the boundaries of both design and functionality.  We understand what the industry needs, how we can deliver that within a complete solution and ultimately how we can help installers add value to their customers.  Our new TRVs are compatible with a range of end fittings including, press and push fit technology.”For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560 or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk * http://www.beama.org.uk/en/utilities/document-summary.cfm/docid/10170869-0D20-4FE8-A9BBBC9E9E5A9508

    New Online Tool to Help Installers and Contractors with jointing Choices

    Pegler Yorkshire has launched a new online selector tool to provide installers and contractors with a unique, new way to identify the most effective way to join pipe work in any given situation.INSIGHT is the perfect online tool to help installers, contractors and specifiers choose the right system for the job. Through three simple stages of search and selection (confirming the type of project, application and pipe work system), INSIGHT will help installers to identify and select the most appropriate way of joining pipe work for a specific project. "Whether it’s a large commercial commission for service distribution, a high occupancy building, or a domestic installation that’s posing a new challenge, all the answers and qualified advice for both new applications and retro-fitting are now just a click away," said Phill Jackson Business Development and Marketing Director Pegler Yorkshire. "It offers impartial, unbiased advice as to which method and product is best suited to a particular application and covers all sectors of the heating and plumbing industry."Jointing products can be flexible to meet varying requirements but dependent upon the project, application and needs, some will perform far better than others and be quicker and easier to install. For example, push-fit and press-fit jointing products offer a myriad of benefits when utilised in different applications. Consideration is given to the situation of the pipe work, the confines that may affect it and the application involved - gas, solar, heating and hot or potable water."This comprehensive and much-needed facility will reveal the best product solution for installers," said Phill. "It’s easy to use and clearly defines the pros and cons of each connecting system. It also takes into account convenience for the installer by highlighting systems that can be fitted without having to purchase non-standard tools, or homing in on push-fit solutions in situations where speedy installation is a necessity.’’INSIGHT can be viewed at www.pegleryorkshire.co.uk/en/insight

    Tectite Commercial Valve Range Expands

    Following the successful launch of the revolutionary new Tectite Flexible Metal plumbing system, Pegler Yorkshire has announced an addition to its valve range – the Tectite TX300 Full Bore Quarter Turn Lever Ball Valve.Aaron Carter, Pegler Yorkshire’s marketing manager for Tectite said: “The Tectite range is rapidly growing as more and more installers, specifiers and contractors catch on to its many benefits.  The Tectite Ball Valve is yet another product launched by Pegler Yorkshire to complement the range of highly efficient push-fit end technology products.”Many contractors, particularly in the commercial valves market, place emphasis on the importance of product longevity, quality engineering, cost-effective and straightforward commissioning and maintenance procedures.  Tectite push-fit end technology, as found with the Ball Valve, addresses all of these elements and then some… Heat free jointing offers many advantages, such as the ability to install without a hot works permit and therefore avoiding associated administration costs. Less COSHH controls, fewer specialist tools and lower insurance premiums.  Labour time saving is another distinct advantage, as there is no longer a requirement to stay on site for up to two hours following the use of heat as a precautionary measure to guard against fire.  Added to this is a reduction in the time required to fully flush a system for the removal of flux.  Furthermore, with technical advancements metal push fit fittings are also available in larger sizes, making them suitable for a greater number of applications across more pipe types and sizes. The new TX300 Ball Valve embodies the Tectite ethos boasting grip first grab rings which prevent any risk of full bore failure, pre-lubricated seals for reduced insertion force and a DZR brass body which conforms to the latest European Drinking Water legislation.    As with the whole Tectite portfolio the TX300 offers tried and tested technology with the advancements and quality assurance only found with products by Pegler Yorkshire.Additional features offered by the new Tectite Ball Valve include; a unique lever design that incorporates a locking feature, red and blue inserts for hot and cold water services identification, blow out and vandal proof stem assembly, available in sizes 15mm and 22mm tube connections and is suitable for connection to a wide range of popular tube types.Aaron continued: “Pegler Yorkshire places huge emphasis on gaining independent approvals and providing assured quality products. The Tectite TX300 Ball Valve boasts WRAS approval and also benefits from a date code for audit traceability.  This is a great Tectite addition to both the domestic and commercial Valves ranges and will ensure greater system choice for installers, specifiers and contractors.”Pegler Yorkshire’s approach in the development of this product has been driven by developing relationships with the contractors and installers who work with commercial and domestic valve products. From the resulting ideas and feedback this has generated, the Tectite commercial valve range of new products is continuing to evolve which will see an influx of quality assured inherently practical products that will complement most applications.  For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560 or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk.

    Case Study: Installation of Bespoke XPress Sprinkler System in Gateshead

    The project involved the installation of a bespoke sprinkler system to a multi-occupancy high rise as part of an on-going regeneration by Gateshead Housing Company, Gateshead Council and Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue to ensure all high rise, multi-occupancy blocks adhered to latest fire safety standards.A completely new installation, rather than a replacement of an existing system, meant XPress was specified as a result of consultation from Pegler Yorkshire's sales representative in the area. Contractors, Domestic Sprinklers who were the installers and specifiers ascertained the suitability of the XPress system primarily due to its feature of a seamless and efficient installation without the need for passive works.Products from the XPress press-fit range were utilised including a variety of sizes of tube and fittings.  In addition, XPress was selected due to its strength and flexibility and its fire retardant credentials. As it will not burn without a flame source it is particularly suitable for fire sprinkler systems in residential buildings such as this. Because of the aesthetics presented by XPress pipework and fittings it was able to be exposed in hallways.Colin Taylor at Domestic Sprinklers commented, "Despite slight reservations in the product - it is a relatively new product for fire protection market and this was a flagship project for us - we have found it simplistic to use and due to being so lightweight it has made the installation extremely easy. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other clients and to commission it in other projects."The system was installed under BS9251 guidelines and comprises  920 individual sprinkler heads.

    Tectite Flexible Metal System - A Revolution by Pegler Yorkshire

    Pegler Yorkshire is pleased to announce the future in domestic plumbing for the UK!  The company has drawn on 125 years of British manufacturing to create the unique Tectite Flexible Metal system, a product like no other on the market.Tectite utilises multi-layer composite pipe (MLCP) tubing, which is constructed using a thin layer of aluminium flanked by cross-linked polyethylene, an environmentally friendly, industrial-strength plastic.This offers installers and specifiers the perfect balance between the integrity of metal and the flexibility of plastic.  Indeed, Tectite is malleable enough to be shaped by hand, yet it is more resistant to warping than plastic piping, and it can handle temperatures of more than 100°C and working pressures up to 16 bar. Designed for installation alongside the high-performance metal push-fit fittings range from Pegler Yorkshire, jointing does not require any expensive tooling – and is twice as quick as the capillary method, thanks to the use of pre-lubricated seals.“Multi-layer pipe has not been manufactured in UK metric sizes until now,” says Aaron Carter, Tectite's Marketing Manager.“The Tectite brand by Pegler Yorkshire has finally made the technology available to the UK installer. What all this adds up to is a high-performance, flexible system that offers a long working life, greatly reduced system noise and a swift, efficient installation.”Available in two sizes, 15mm and 22mm, the Tectite Flexible Metal system is the perfect solution for plumbing professionals everywhere.Pegler Yorkshire has based the Tectite Flexible Metal System around the Tectite Classic and Pro ranges which provide a slim-line, stiff and reliable joint incorporating a demountable function.  The company has incorporated a growing valve portfolio which ensures the system provides the domestic installer with all the quality and breadth of range, long associated with the manufacturer.   This range includes unique ball valves, push-fit Terrier TRV’s, Tectite thermostatic mixing valves and a host of other controls up to and including advanced differential pressure control valves.For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560 or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk

    TMVs Now Boast Tectite Technology

    The Tectite TMV utilises the latest innovations in metal push-fit technology and will provide connectivity to copper, stainless steel and PE-X and PB.  It also benefits from additional push-fit advantages such as installed cost savings, as joints are made in a fraction of the time, heat free therefore no requirement for a hot works permit and rotatable joints which makes working in confined spaces easier.   The TMV itself carries with it the high performance guarantee by Pegler Yorkshire products.  The Tectite TX405 series in-line TMVs are combined TMV3 and TMV2 compact mixing valves which meet the requirements of NHS Model Engineering Specification DO8, are third party approved through Buildcert.  They also meet EN1111 and EN1287 standard allowing them to be used in domestic bath fill applications for new build properties in line with the mandatory requirements of Part G of the Building Regulations 2010. Barrie Plant, product market manager for Pegler Yorkshire said: “By combining our extensive knowledge and expertise in the thermostatic mixing valve market with that of fittings we have developed a product that provides installers with an easy fit solution for our renowned TMVs.”The new valves are fitted with a single purple cap which includes the TMV3 and TMV2 logos that provides a clear visual indication that the valve can be used in a variety of applications such as hospitals, care homes and domestic use.For installers and contractors, the new valves retain the ease of service advantages and now also offer Tectite connection for pipe sizes 15mm to 22mm. The full Tectite TMV series are supplied with strainers and non-return valves, they offer a screw fixed tamper proof cap to prevent unauthorised adjustment of the valve temperature setting which is factory pre-set to 43C and come with easy to service union connections. Barrie continued: “We are now offering our customers, whether they be merchants or installers, a product that boasts many advantages from reduced costs of stocking because of the compact combination of a TMV3 and TMV2 to the ease of fit due to the Tectite technology.  And, as Pegler Yorkshire continues to innovate our customers will continue to experience the provision of system solutions rather than just products.”The range will be extended further with the addition of Tectite TMV’s combined with 90 degree union angle valves later this year. For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560 or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk

    Pegler Yorkshire Welcomes Head of CBI

    At a recent visit to the Doncaster offices of Pegler Yorkshire, the Director General of the CBI cited the company as one of the ‘corner stones’ of the country that can provide the engine of growth required for the recovery of the UK economy.With global representation, Pegler Yorkshire, provides plumbing products, systems and solutions worldwide.  It has four factories and international sales teams based in the UK and Dubai.Stuart Anderson, Group Managing Director of Pegler Yorkshire commented: “The CBI is an organisation that ensures businesses have a voice in policy at Government level and we are encouraged by their involvement in promoting schemes to the UK Government that would, in particular, allow house buyers to gain reasonably priced loans to purchase homes.“These polices would give a real boost to house building and in turn provide smaller developers and suppliers the ability to expand their businesses.  “We welcomed the visit by John Cridland and were keen to hear of not only the CBI’s involvement in the UK but the international trade missions John has been on over the past 12 months.”  The CBI lobbies in the UK, in Europe and beyond to tackle barriers to operating overseas and create conditions that encourage businesses to export. John Cridland, Director General of the CBI, met with Stuart Anderson to discuss the expansion of Pegler Yorkshire into overseas markets which now makes up 35% of the overall sales.  Infrastructure was also a topic of discussion and how investment into energy projects would help control the soring energy costs faced by businesses like Pegler Yorkshire.  “One of the most informative and enjoyable parts of my job is getting out and about across the UK to speak to businesses on the ground, and I’m delighted to be here in Yorkshire and The Humber to meet Pegler Yorkshire,” commented John Cridland.“A significant driver of the UK’s future economic growth will depend on the ability of firms to break into new overseas markets to sell their products and services internationally, so it’s been fascinating to learn about Pegler Yorkshire’s success as an established exporter.”

    Kuterlite delivers PROfessional results every time

    When installers need compression fittings that deliver enhanced performance, valves and fittings specialist Pegler Yorkshire has always been the first choice. By operating a policy of unceasing product development, Kuterlite has established itself as the market leader and reputation set to be reinforced further by the improved Kuterlite fitting – the K900-Pro.The experts at Pegler Yorkshire have studied the performance of compression products throughout the market and have identified applications where new modifications could push the boundaries of the performance of the existing range even further.These modifications have meant re-visiting the design characteristics of the compression nut itself, and using the company’s years of know how to remodel the nut to deliver enhanced engineering safety in every new K900 fitting. Manufactured to exceed the requirements of BS EN 1254-2, Kuterlite-PRO is recommended for all applications where the K900 was previously employed, but particularly comes into its own in specialist areas such as chilled water applications.The secret of the new fitting lies in the top four modifications that have been made to the K900-PRO range to deliver this new enhanced performance. Firstly, the forged nut reduces residual stresses better than ever before; while wall thickness has been increased, to exceed BS EN 1254-2 by 50%. Thirdly, the nut is now wider across the flats, to better suit most common metric spanner types for ease of installation, while finally the height of the nut flat has been increased to deliver greater contact.Pegler Yorkshire product market manager Kathleen Bramwell has no doubts about the new performer, “The new K900-PRO is a great product. Years of research and development has now delivered a product that does not disappoint on any level. It is perfect for installers, thanks to many of the new improvements, while still delivering an industry leading 25 year guarantee.”Along with the points above, the fitting boasts an all new internal profile, which helps to ensure correct compression ring deformation every time, and the new K900-PRO is available now.“Kuterlite has always been a popular choice and is supported with a wide range of patterns, size range, from 12-54mm with the chunky nut and 67-108mm with the flange and bolt method, and a choice of finish,” added Kathleen. “This new PRO has been designed to be more robust than ever before and its new funky and chunky design is typical of the brand and continues to make this fitting both a practical and stylish option – particularly in areas with exposed pipe work as there is a Chrome Plated option available.”For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560 alternatively, email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk.

    Bank of England's Deputy Governor Visits Pegler Yorkshire

    Pegler Yorkshire has welcomed Charlie Bean, Deputy Governor of Monetary Policy at the Bank of England, to its Doncaster premises.  Mr Bean visited the company as part of a region wide fact finding mission and was particularly interested in Pegler Yorkshire’s growth in export sales.  The Deputy Governor spoke with Directors of the company and was taken on a tour of the facility which took in the key elements of brass product manufacturing.  Including processing the raw material, of which Pegler Yorkshire is one of only two remaining companies in the UK to have this facility, through to rod extrusion, machining, chrome plating, and finished product testing and labelling.Stuart Anderson, Managing Director of Pegler Yorkshire commented: “As manufacturing is an important part of the local and wider economy we were encouraged by the visit and the opportunity to speak directly with the Deputy Governor.  “It was evident Mr Bean was keen to see innovation at the forefront of British manufacturing and the opportunities these innovations offer to both the regional business community and export sales.“We are proud to show that our growth in export continues to underpin our contribution to the local economy by the staff we employ and the local suppliers we use.”Pegler Yorkshire which has over 660 UK employees has concentrated on export growth via expansion into the Middle East and becoming the European developer of metal push-fit solutions through the company’s Tectite brand.  The company was keen to demonstrate its prowess in its export strategy and discuss factors that contribute to its success.Stuart concluded: “As a business we welcome the stability of the currency and are pleased to see that interest rates remain low, it is also encouraging to see the continuation of quantitative easing, all of which help us to develop our business on the global stage.  It is important that the Government and banking industry continue to support investment into schools, hospitals and local housing projects to ensure UK manufacturing output remains steady but with an opportunity of growth.“It would be great to see the feel good factor that surrounds Britain at present filter through to British products with more and more companies encouraged to ‘Buy British’.”The high manufacturing standards and processes of which Pegler Yorkshire adhere to, coupled with continual innovation in product development, investment into new plant and equipment plus the understanding of global markets ensures Pegler Yorkshire is comfortably positioned to export products across the world.  Being based in Yorkshire and the transportation infrastructure in the area offers a distinct advantage to the company in delivering its products worldwide.

    Instant Jointing Techniques By Pegler Yorkshire

    Push-fit fittings started to appear in the UK during the 1980s in flexible systems.  Originally established as simple technology only suitable for light duty has now matured and evolved into thoroughly professional metal fitting systems capable of performing at a very high level in a wide range of applications.The direct benefits derived from using push-fittings including speed of installation, heat and solvent free jointing and the need for only basic tools, can now be realised in more applications and across more pipe types and sizes. These advantages can be translated into cost savings; less COSHH controls, no hot work permits, no specialist tools, lower insurance premiums and labour time savings.The view that instant jointing systems remain light duty and low tech, conceived with the unskilled installer in mind is challenged by their adoption by some of the UK’s largest M&E contractors. Investment in product development and new fitting ranges by manufacturers has given this group of specifiers and installers a competitive advantage over their fellow professionals.It is recognised that within the arena of instant jointing systems alternatives are available giving more choice to the installer and these vary from the plastic push-fit systems to the metal push-fit systems.  Both systems bring inherent benefits and understanding the nature of the job will help determine the right product to be used.  These may include the performance of the operating system and its requirements, whether or not the system needs to provide electrical continuity, operating temperatures and the bore size.For different applications a range of instant jointing fittings are available, whether you need demountable or non-demountable there is a huge choice out there.  Pegler Yorkshire, a leading manufacturer in the plumbing and heating industry, has developed a range of instantaneous jointing fittings which benefit from faster and easier installation, greater high performance and offer cost effective solutions to any plumbing application.  The range includes, Tectite Classic, Tectite Sprint, Tectite Pro, Tectite Carbon and Tectite 316.For further information call 01302 560 560 or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk.

    PEGLER YORKSHIRE HAS THE TOUCH!

    According to experts 80% of infectious diseases are transferred by touch, and the most frequently touched surfaces can be contaminated with anywhere from several hundred to over ten thousand infectious bacteria.  In response to this prevalent issue and utilising the latest research and technology available, leading manufacturer Pegler Yorkshire has developed an innovative range of taps for the healthcare sector.   Whilst strict infection control measures, such as frequent surface disinfection and hand-washing, are adhered to, there are still around 4 million healthcare-associated infections per year in healthcare facilities across Europe*.  The new range of hospital taps from Pegler Yorkshire is manufactured using Antimicrobial Copper. The range boasts the Antimicrobial Copper Cu+ mark, which signifies the products are capable of continuously killing pathogenic microbes even in between cleans.The first in the UK to launch a product of this type, Pegler Yorkshire’s tap product market manager, Mike Dickinson explains: “As the healthcare industry strives to prevent the transfer of infectious bacteria, and with taps being one area of a hospital that is continuously used, it is imperative that manufacturers develop new products to help combat the issues facing the industry.  The results of research conducted by specialists across the world has shown that the antimicrobial benefits of copper far outweigh any other product on the market.  Antimicrobial Copper surfaces are the most effective touch surface, ideal for the healthcare environment where their inherent, continuous ability to kill bacteria will supplement infection control measures.”Antimicrobial Copper is inherently antimicrobial through and through. Even when such surfaces are scratched, their antimicrobial efficacy continues to work.  They will not wear away like coatings or other treatments can.Pegler Yorkshire has combined this technology with a selection of its Performa range of healthcare taps and mixers.  A range specifically designed to suit the needs of healthcare professionals, patients and care home residents.Forming part of a new ‘Hospital’ brochure by Pegler Yorkshire, the antimicrobial range of taps sit alongside other products that conform to the Health Technical Memorandum, such as Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMV). With antimicrobial taps helping with infection control, there is also a requirement, particularly in a hospital environment, to prevent the threat of Legionella, which is where TMVs come into their own.  Now recognised by the Government, installers and specifiers alike, as essential valves for any washroom facility, the TMV allows the water to be kept hot to prevent the threat of Legionella yet still be delivered at a safe temperature at point of use.Mike continues: “By combining the antimicrobial concept with a range of our Performa healthcare taps, we can now provide the industry with a remarkable product that works on a variety of levels.  The taps benefit from the inherent qualities of a Pegler Yorkshire product together with a viable solution to aid infection control.  Combined with other products within our portfolio, the Hospital brochure will provide a valuable resource for both specifers and facility managers.”Pegler Yorkshire’s range of Antimicrobial Copper taps are to be launched early 2012.  For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560 or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk.*Report on the Burden of Endemic Health-Care Associated Infection Worldwide, World Health Organization, 2011

    Pegler Yorkshire Fitting Raises the ‘Car’ and Vital Funds for Charity

    The Tectite Pro Push-fit fitting is just 140mm in length and is primarily used to connect 54mm piping together yet has managed to suspend a car weighing 1.4 tonnes in mid-air.  The experiment, a unique part of Pegler Yorkshire’s rigorous testing measures, also helped to raise vital funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research and was observed by John Wakefield the Secretary Chairman for the charity’s Thorne Voluntary Committee. Sally Crerar, Head of Community Fundraising at Yorkshire Cancer Research said: “This is a most unusual way to raise funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research as it must be the first time we have benefited from a donation following an event where a car is suspended in thin air!  We would like to thank Pegler Yorkshire for choosing our charity to receive the most generous donation of £400.”Marketing Director for Pegler Yorkshire, Phill Jackson commented: “All our products go through rigorous testing measures before being introduced to the market, but I agree this is a particularly unusual way of testing although it not only demonstrates the amazing strength of the product but, has also enabled us to donate vital funds to a local charity.”Yorkshire Cancer Research was chosen by Pegler Yorkshire because of the charity’s tireless work to help those people in the Yorkshire region affected by cancer.  Every penny raised is spent in our region and supports world-class research, diagnosis and treatment in Yorkshire.The Tectite Pro fitting, typically used in commercial plumbing systems, has delivered on strength and durability and will now form part of the quality range of fittings within the Pegler Yorkshire portfolio.For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560, or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk

    A CHANGE OF HABIT WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM TECHNOLOGY CAN SAVE 30% OFF FUEL COSTS THIS WINTER

    According to a recent uSwitch.com survey, 32 per cent of energy customers in the UK are adamant that gas and electricity tariffs are unaffordable. Unfortunately, prices are set to rise further, and with over 60 per cent of household energy bills based on heating costs consumers need to act now to save money this winter! How can we do this cost effectively without shelling out hundreds and hundreds of pounds on cavity wall and loft insulation or solar panels?  A simple solution is to change our heating habits.  Instead of heating the whole house when really only a couple of rooms are being used at any one time, ensure the radiators are turned off in the rooms not in use.  Some thrifty and even environmentally conscious consumers will already change their thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) depending on their particular requirements, but most will leave them set at a high of 5 (29 degrees). But managing the temperature in this way inevitably leads to inefficiencies, as not all the rooms in a home are used all the time.Herein lies a simple solution, the Terrier i-temp a Programmable Radiator Control (PRC).  Costing about £25 this devise simply replaces the common TRV found on most radiators and gives the homeowner control over the time and temperature of each individual radiator.  This means that even though a heating system is ‘on’, radiators can now been automatically and individually turned off, when not required, ensuring less energy is used.For example, a typical family will heat their whole house, during the morning, although may only require heat in the bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen, the heat emitting from the radiators in other rooms is then wasted.  The Terrier i-temp PRC will allow for each individual radiator to be set at a specific temperature and time therefore keeping in tune with the residents own routine and reducing the energy used and ultimately heating bills.In fact, the Energy Savings Trust has recognised the big energy savings the Terrier i -temp can make leading it to be the first PRC of its kind to be included in the organisation’s list of recommended products.Innovative products can sometimes be daunting for users however being user friendly has been key for the development of the Terrier i-temp that is why programming has been simplified in a walkthrough process.  Using an easy to view LCD screen it offers pre programmes for bedroom and sitting room or a customisation program. Either way the PRC can be installed or programmed within minutes. “This is a very cost effective product ideally suited to a home or even office environment,” commented Sindar Singh product market manager Pegler Yorkshire, the Yorkshire based company behind the product. “Significant investment combined with over 100 years of heating experience has been used to develop this innovative PRC to address important issues such as heat wastage, reducing carbon emissions and most importantly saving money.”Terrier i -temp requires no complicated installation, and fits easily to most popular TRVs. Compared to other energy saving installation methods, Terrier i-temp will save time and money and its performance payback could be realised within just eight months. For further information about the Terrier i-temp, how it works, how to install, how to save money and where to buy visit, www.saveonheatingbills.co.uk.  The product is now available at a variety of stockists (see online for details) sold individually or you can upgrade your whole house (based on 8 units) for less than £200 with the Terrier i-temp and reap the pay back rewards in just eight months.

    Pegler Yorkshire takes the heat out of the Thermostatic Valves Market with two valves in one

    As a recognised innovator and market leader in the field of Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMV), Pegler Yorkshire has once again responded to changing regulations and customer need to deliver a new mixing valve that greatly simplifies the valve selection process while at the same time enhancing product performance, by blending two valves into one all purpose multi-use TMV.Traditionally, TMV products have been divided into Type2 (suitable for the domestic market) and Type3 (for environments such as hospitals) which required a more exacting standard; until the recent arrival of The Health Technical Memorandum (HTM04-01) which allows the use of a Type2 valve in certain hospital locations.    Pegler Yorkshire considered this Memorandum an opportune moment to innovate in TMVs while providing a solution to it at the same time - combining a Type3 and Type2 into one blended valve still offers all the high performance of a TMV3, yet maintains the lower servicing costs if used in TMV2 environments. The new valves are fitted with a blue cap (denoting a Type3 TMV) as standard and if the valve is then used as a Type2 – and installed and commissioned as such, then the white cap (denoting Type2 status) can be fitted, thus providing a clear visual indication of how the valve is being used at a glance and what regime needs to be applied for servicing and testing intervals.Pegler Yorkshire has strived to ensure the new TMV valve would benefit not just the final end user, but distributors, installers and contractors. For the distributor who currently needs to stock 8 variants of TMV, the advent of this new valve from Pegler Yorkshire means they need now only stock four. The advantage is less confusion and reduced costs of stocking.For installers and contractors, the new valves still retain the ease of service advantages of the old model, but this next generation valve benefits installers further because they can be confident the TMV in their van is of such quality, that it can be used not just in a Type2 environment, but complies with all the requirements for a TMV3 setting too. No matter what the situation, specifiers and installers can now be certain they have the right product for the job – a vital consideration in one area where mistakes can literally cost lives. “After years of campaigning, TMVs are now recognised by government and installers alike as essential where water needs to be kept hot to prevent the threat of legionella, yet still delivered at a safe temperature at point of use,” said Pegler Yorkshire’s Barrie Plant. “Our new TMV is the culmination of years of know-how in the field - delivering valves with a lower profile and advanced features, yet that still meet the strict tests and standards such products must comply with.” This new TMV complies with BSEN1111 and BSEN1287 and also meets the BS7942 standard and the Model Engineering Specification, while independent third party testing and approval through the BuildCert TMV2 and BuildCert TMV3 schemes ensures the consistent quality and performance, associated with Pegler Yorkshire valves, is maintained.For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560, email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk

    i-temptations as trio of new i-temp accessories deliver Terrier-ific

    Designed to give users even more ways to control and personalise the system, these new products deliver enhanced simplicity while helping to further reduce heating costs in the home. i-temp forms part of the renowned Terrier range of heating products and since its launch has proven itself to be a must have product both domestically and commercially. The i-temp can be used to upgrade many types of TRV and by allowing the temperature to be controlled in each room of the house can deliver savings of up to 30% on heating bills, while at the same time delivering the level of comfort required for every part of the home or work place. While i-temp remains the simple, yet intelligent PRC it was designed to be, Pegler Yorkshire now offers three new products to make i-temp even easier to use and extending its capabilities. Now available as part of the i-temp portfolio is a remote control, an innovative USB programming stick complete with software and a ‘window contact’ that automatically and remotely adjusts your i-temp, so you don’t have to. All of the new products can be used on their own, or combined for the ultimate in home heating control and energy saving technology. The development of an i-temp remote control is a natural progression and allows users to control the PRC temperature without leaving the comfort of their seat. Small, discreet and simple to use, the remote displays the current ambient temperature in the room you are in and allows you to increase or decrease the temperature accordingly. It is easy to use and as with all the new accessories, will work with multiple i-temp devices. Joining the remote control is a USB programming stick and software. The USB stick allows communication with the i-temp devices in the home but the real star of the show is the software, which allows the easy setting of a ‘heating profile’ for each i-temp – allowing for the quick and easy creation of heating programmes, direct from your PC. A variety of heating programmes can be generated and stored, allowing you to select and implement your favourite at the touch of a button Finally, the window contact is the icing on the cake, delivering all round management of home heating and energy loss, right down to detecting when a window has been opened or closed and informing the i-temp device which can then respond accordingly. The window contact epitomises the i-temp philosophy, by delivering energy saving in a simple, unobtrusive way. “When we launched i-temp it was a revolutionary product for the Terrier range and these new options make it accessory heaven for i-temp users everywhere,” said Pegler Yorkshire product market manager Sindar Singh. “i-temp is cost effective, easy to install and these new accessories make the system easer to use than ever, while delivering even greater energy efficiency.” Costing about £25, i-temp requires no complicated installation, and fits easily to most popular TRV’s and handy adaptors are included in the pack. The i-temp i30 PRC is suitable for vertical valves while the i35 is the choice for horizontal valves. Both are available with thermostatic valve bodies if required – making them the perfect choice for a new installation as well as an energy saving upgrade in an existing dwelling. Simplicity, as a first principle, is at the heart of the i-temp system. Many people will remember the complexity of some early domestic heating controls and rather than leave end users scratching their heads, the team at Pegler Yorkshire have designed the i-temp range around them. Programming has been greatly simplified and the new remote control for example uses only the basic buttons required to avoid any confusion and eliminate unnecessary and cumbersome complexity. “The new additions have been developed to be very easy to ‘pair’ with the i-temp PRC,” added Sindar. “For those who have used i-temp to delver energy savings already, these latest products have been designed to offer additional energy saving options. They can be installed in minutes, but will provide years of energy saving and heating control.” Aimed at delivering convenience and a simple way of saving energy and controlling heating without needing to touch the main boiler control, i-temp has found itself the perfect solution in both the domestic and commercial environment alike. It can play a significant role in reducing the carbon emission score in care homes, social housing and multiple apartments with a single heat source. The new accessories have just taken this to the next level. By recognising when a window has been opened and adjusting the heating accordingly, it will be clear how the window contact will quickly pay for itself in a care home and social housing environment, while the remote allows the user to adjust every room easily. These new i-temp upgrades will save everyone from home owners to maintenance manager’s time and money while the product’s existing high performance has led it to be the first PRC of its kind to be recognised as an Energy Saving Trust recommended product.

    New Ebro Tap Range goes with the flow

    Ebro is a fresh new design and named after the largest river in Spain, it has an unashamedly European vogue – a flow straightener is fitted as standard and all the basin fittings include an aerator, for that champagne ‘bubbly’ water flow. An eight piece range, Ebro offers taps for basin, bath, bidet and kitchen and includes a single lever mono basin mixer complete with flip waste. The mono bath mixer is particularly impressive and offers exceptional flow rates at low pressure. In keeping with Pegler Yorkshire’s policy on water saving initiatives, the Ebro range offers a water saving option, which keeps the Francis Pegler range at the cutting edge of the water saving market and actively involved with the ever-changing legislation in the drive to conserve water. “After much evaluation and product development, we are delighted to be able to launch the new Ebro range,” said product market manager Mike Dickinson, “The designs have been developed to be modern and functional, but with affordable prices to boot, we are expecting these new lines to be an immediate success.” Together with other new ranges Ebro and Pulsar taps and mixers are part of the Pegler Yorkshire policy of responding to changing needs and conditions in the market and producing new products based on customer needs and requirements.

    Strata Success

    One hugely successful example of this research is the Strata range part of the distinguished Francis Pegler portfolio. “Strata’s tubular and cylindrical style is fresh and modern in its design credentials,” commented Mike Dickinson product market manager Pegler Yorkshire. “The feature that has particularly generated commented is the textured finger grip that is featured on all models in the range. The grip demonstrates a finishing touch that is cast into the design of the lever and provides for precise control of temperature and flow.” Strata’s success is not just based on looks alone though. In addition, the basin monobloc tap contain a moveable flow straightner in the casing. This straightner is the perfect complement to today’s modern basins, where traditional taps with an immoveable flow can cause uncomfortable hand washing close to the back wall of the basin or where the flow of water hits the waste directly. The Strata internal flow straightner removes this problem at a stroke and also allows for the flow to be adjusted as often as required – useful too should the basin be replaced at any stage.

    Konik Proves a Hit

    Its design has taken its cue from an existing product in the portfolio and given it an exciting new twist. The Konik style seamlessly combines cylindrical tubes and angular cubes to give a minimalist appearance, but with subtle shapes and shadow when exposed to the light.  With six pieces in the range, comprising a mono basin, tall mono basin, mono bath, two hole bath filler and shower mixer and a kitchen mixer, the Konik is able to complement any bathroom or kitchen. The right angle shape of the kitchen mixer, with its round spout gives Konik the appearance of a Luger pistol and its almost art deco appearance is sure to attract interest.  “We will have an impressive portfolio of existing product ranges, but many of our new designs have an unashamedly European style and reflect the market’s current love for all things continental. When you couple this with our new product launches this year, we will be continuing to demonstrate Pegler Yorkshire’s expertise and commitment to the brassware sector,” said Pegler Yorkshire product market manager Mike Dickinson.

The installation method also means the bare minimum of disturbance for a building’s users – XPress sprinkler offers a fast, clean installation - particularly important if the public are on site while the work takes place.”The XPress sprinkler system is already a well established product in the demanding European market and is sure to be similarly accepted in the UK. All fittings and tubes are already stocked by Pegler Yorkshire in the UK. This new system is backed by the comprehensive product guarantee installers have come to expect from Pegler Yorkshire and a wealth of UK and international approvals, including LPCB, VdS, and FM. The XPress sprinkler system delivers safety, coupled with fast, clean and efficient heat-free jointing and is available to from national distributors now.For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560 or email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk

    SIMPLE INNOVATION WITH MAXIMUM IMPACT

    Using its expertise in radiator valve control the company has created a revolutionary new product that can save up to 30% of space heating costs and can significantly contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions. Room temperature control has successfully been managed by TRVs for many years, yet taking this further, Pegler Yorkshire’s innovative product not only controls temperature but now time, which means the radiator is only on at times actually required by the end user. Developed under the renowned terrier brand, and recommended by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), the terrier i-temp is a programmable radiator control (PRC). “This is an exciting new product for Pegler Yorkshire,” commented Sindar Singh product marketing manager Pegler Yorkshire. “Significant investment combined with heating experience has been used to develop this innovative PRC to address important issues such as heat wastage, reducing carbon emissions and most importantly saving money.” The terrier i-temp allows the time and temperature in each room to be fine tuned with no change to the master programmer. This energy saving advancement prevents heat wastage as the end user can focus heat within individual rooms when required. For example a typical user would normally heat the whole house in a number of time periods, but only use rooms at certain points of the day, the terrier i-temp can be set to reflect this ensuring no heat wastage in other rooms which results in inevitable energy saving. This revolutionary new product is just a simple upgrade to an existing heating system; the PRC simply attaches to most brands of thermostatic radiator valves. It upgrades to the majority of existing TRV bodies, with adaptors provided within the pack. Products available include the terrier i-temp i30 PRC for vertical fitted valves and the i35 PRC for horizontal mounted valves. Both products are available with thermostatic valve bodies if required for a completely new installation. Innovative products can sometimes be daunting for users however being “end user” friendly has been key for the development of the terrier i-temp that is why programming has been simplified in a walkthrough process, it also offers pre programmes for bedroom and sitting room or a customisation program. Either way the PRC can be installed or programmed within minutes. There are many additional features for example hidden temperature limit for future potential energy saving, window opening detection, set back and comfort settings and child lock features. This PRC will provide huge benefits for all types of applications both domestic and commercial. It can play a significant role in reducing the carbon emission for existing housing stock, social housing, care homes and multiple apartments with a central heat source. In addition, compared to other energy saving installation methods, terrier i-temp upgrades to existing valves quickly which will save time and money, its performance payback could be realised within just eight months. “With heating identified as one of the highest domestic carbon emitters it was apparent that there was a real market niche to address this topical issue,” commented Sindar. “Considerable data collection has taken place with a full energy saving trial conducted, in conjunction with Longhurst Housing Trust. Two identical three bedroom terrace new build houses were used, one fitted with TRV’s and one with terrier i-temp. Results were compelling and demonstrated that terrier i-temp represents significant cost saving benefits on gas usage.”The terrier i-temp is the first of its kind to be recognised as an Energy Saving Trust recommended product.

    A TMV Can Make Sense of Part G

    Section G3 of the regulations will be extended so the hot water supply to any fixed bath must incorporate a device to ensuring the temperature of the water cannot exceed 48°C. The changes are aimed at new homes and while campaigners would like to see this extended to all dwellings, all concerned have broadly welcomed the amendments. The revised document should become law in England in April 2010 and will follow the lead set by Scotland and other sectors (such as hospitals and care homes) with a duty of care in protecting the public from the risk of scalding. A lack of awareness of just how easily hot water can result in severe scalding means the protection of a Thermostatic Mixing Valve (or TMV) is vital. A TMV mixes hot and cold water to deliver blended water at a safe, pre-set temperature, by means of a temperature sensitive part that varies the amount of hot and cold water entering the valve. A temperature of just 51°C will burn the average adult in 2-6 minutes, and even faster with adults and children who have thinner skin. Most of us find even 44°C uncomfortably hot, choosing to shower and bathe in a cooler 41°C. Manufacturers have been forging ahead with new product development to help installers meet the requirements of an anticipated revision to Part G with regard to hot water safety and one of Pegler Yorkshire’s key launches for this year is a brand new range of TMV’s. Branded under the Prestex name and manufactured and assembled completely in the UK, superior quality control and traceability have been key drivers for the new product, coupled with a precision engineering that has delivered a more compact and lightweight design. To comply with Part G a TMV must have a maximum temperature stop at 48°C, must not be easily altered by the end user and be suitable and compatible with the installation. The product should allow the length of supply to the terminal outlet to be kept to a minimum, a key consideration in preventing the development of water borne pathogens like legionalla. The reason boiler temperatures are kept high is to destroy such pathogens and the TMV allows for this, while still ensuring the delivery of hot water at a safe pre-sent level. For the domestic arena addressed by Part G, installers should select a TMV certified as compliant under the Buildcert TMV2 scheme. This will ensure compliance with both BSEN1111 and BSEN 1287. The new compact size of the Prestex Valve makes it easy to install near the outlet, and once fitted provides reliable temperature control, factory set at 43°C. A good TMV also protects the user from ‘Thermal Shock’ if either the hot or cold water supply should fail unexpectedly. As well as monitoring and approving TMV’s, Buildcert also list manufacturers who comply with the relevant British and European standards, so installers and the public alike can be confident in the effectiveness of products on this list. The benefits of TMV installation are hard to ignore and while changes to Part G have been welcome, reservations remain that the changes do not go far enough. There is the question of hot water safety being applied across the board, not just in new build alone. But of more concern is the question of on-going TMV maintenance. TMV’s are sometimes referred to as ‘fail-safe’ devices, but this is mis-leading. Any complex mechanical device can only be as good as its servicing and after these products have been installed for several years, concerns over maintenance will arise. A house may have new owners or occupiers and some method needs to be agreed ensuring regular maintenance in accordance with manufacturers instructions – ensuring the device continues to function correctly. It is essential any TMV fitted is a thoroughly tested, high performance device, with an equally high degree of quality control built in. The Prestex TMV has a unique bar code etched onto each product, which allows each TMV manufactured to be traced with unrivalled accuracy to where and when it was produced – right down to the minute of manufacture and initial testing. This level of traceability is a first for this sort of product in the industry. There is no doubt that revised Part G is a real advance, but it is just one battle won. The fight to see TMV protection offered to all homes goes on. If choosing the right TMV is still proving difficult, all responsible manufacturers offer comprehensive advice and assistance to those who require further details or technical information, or installation advice.

    New XPress Gas Range in Satisfying Larger Sizes

    Pegler Yorkshire’s mastery of the fittings market continues with the introduction of a range extension to the XPress copper gas range, with a comprehensive new choice of sizes from 15mm to the extra large 108mm. The range extension coincides with the publication of an all new comprehensive XPress brochure, which features the broad range of products, sizes and materials available in the XPress range include copper and stainless steel within the gas ranges; carbon, and solar fittings supported by a wide variety of accessories. Justly one of the most popular products in the XPress range, XPress copper gas is consistently chosen for its versatility, which has been enhanced by the range extension, making it perfect for even the most demanding projects. XPress copper can be used for both internal and external above ground 2nd and 3rd family gas services, and the new sizes allow Pegler Yorkshire to be even more competitive in the current marketplace as the only manufacturer to offer copper gas in sizes from 15mm to 108mm, with fittings available in sizes to suit all most common pipework. “We are delighted to introduce these larger gas fittings in the XPress range,” said Pegler Yorkshire Product Manager Kathleen Bramwell. “All the products in the range offer clean, safe heat free jointing, with no need for any hot works permits or costly insurance, making them as cost effective to install as they are to specify.” The XPress Gas range continues to use the XPress jointing technique saving time and money for installers and contractors alike. When you factor in GL approval (formerly British Gas), a temperature rating from -20⁰C to 70⁰C (1 bar inside buildings and 5 bar outside), it is no surprise that XPress is establishing itself as the first choice when only the best will do. The industry leading 25 year guarantee is a further assurance of quality and if installed exclusively with Xpress System tubes, the installation will be deemed an XPress system and benefit from a comprehensive 30 year guarantee, demonstrating the absolute confidence Pegler Yorkshire has in one of its biggest selling flagship products. XPress Gas fittings come permanently marked with a highly visible yellow marking stating ‘gas’ and all fittings have passed the High Temperature Leakage Rate test at 650⁰C for 30 minutes, ensuring peace of mind and confidence that any installation of XPress Gas has been designed for life and built to endure. “It goes without saying that XPress has a wide range of approvals,” added Kathleen. “This, coupled with its reputation for high performance, has seen XPress specified more than ever, particularly on large scale, public sector projects where specifying the right product first time is an essential part of the construction process and these new sizes are just one more example of Pegler Yorkshire’s determination to be the ultimate one stop shop, no matter what size or type of fittings are required.” Supersize XPress Gas fittings are the latest addition to Pegler Yorkshire’s established brands, just one of the 15,000 product lines that is making the Yorkshire based manufacturer unrivalled for sheer choice of quality products, backed by industry leading guarantees and fittings custom designed for every conceivable application. Easy to use and fast to fit, XPress Gas fittings are suitable for a range of applications from domestic work, all the way through to the commercial environment and heavy industrial use – XPress is one product that lives up to its name.

    New TMV for Pegler Yorkshire

    The new Pegler Yorkshire TMV’s are branded under the Prestex name and manufactured and assembled completely in the UK. Improving design and quality have been key drivers for the new product, while basing everything in Doncaster is also delivering environmental benefits too. Over £300,000 worth of investment in new machinery has gone into the latest part of the facility dedicated to the manufacture of TMV’s. This includes spending some £250,000 on new manufacturing equipment and a further £80,000 on new additions to the testing laboratory. “TMV’s are a key product for us, so we needed the very best equipment to continue to advance in terms of new product development and quality,” explained product market manager Barrie Plant, “we also need to be more competitive in the marketplace and moving everything to Doncaster makes the operation more cost-effective, while giving us greater control over quality than ever before.” The performance of the products remains as high as ever, but the Prestex TMV is designed to be more compact and lightweight. With less material used in manufacture, the TMV is more environmentally friendly than ever before, costing less to produce and transport: in both money and emissions. Manufacture in the UK also cuts down on distribution costs. While the improved environmental performance of the products is important to a company committed to best practice in terms of environmental impact and reducing carbon emissions. The primary reason for the new investment has been to deliver the highest standards of quality, precision engineering, quality control and traceability. The new TMV is a complete Pegler Yorkshire product, with all components modified to the company’s specific design and while everything being based in Doncaster delivers a superior product, the new laser-etching machine is an essential part of ensuring quality control and traceability. Along with branding the products, the laser also etches a unique bar code on each product, allowing each TMV manufactured to be traced with unrivalled accuracy to where and when it was produced – right down to the minute of manufacture and testing. “This level of traceability is a first for this sort of product in the industry,” said Barrie, “The markings on TMV’s have also been traditionally tooled on, but the laser allows us to change the markings on the TMV easily, with no need for re-tooling should specification change.” The investment in the new TMV and rod making facilities is all a significant part of a three-year plan for the Doncaster site and the modernisation and new equipment that will come as a result of it will provide security and continued manufacturing for the foreseeable future.

    Save Time and Trouble with A Tectite Sprint Socket Depth Gauge

    The Socket Depth Gauge allows the installer to mark the correct socket depth and also incorporates a deburring tool, which removes any burrs or sharp edges from the external tube end and a scribe function enables Tectite Sprint to be used in conjunction with chrome plated tube. When marking the socket depth, many installers make do with a tape measure and marker pen, but this must be done accurately. With the Socket Depth Gauge, this process is quick and easy. Simply insert the tube into the gauge and run round the mouth with a marker pen and you can mark the correct depth with precision. The deburring function works in a similar way. The cut end of the tube should be inserted into the tool, then pushed and rotated several times or until any burrs have been removed. This function is perhaps the most important, since deburring is essential to avoid any damage to the ‘O’ ring when inserting the tube into the fitting. The new Socket Depth Gauge for Tectite Sprint is supplied in a black finish, to distinguish it form the purple Depth Gauge that is already available for Tectite Classic and Pro. The two products are not interchangeable, so the colour coding enables the installer to select the correct tool at a glance and avoids any confusion in the toolkit. Pegler Yorkshire Marketing Services Manager Mark Westmoreland said, “The success of the Depth Gauge for Classic and Pro made the development of a similar product for Tectite Sprint an obvious step to take. The gauge works on all sizes from 15 to 28mm and enables tube preparation to be completed quickly and safely.”

    Why use four fittings when XPress S32 Multi-Port does it in one?

    Along with other products in the Pegler Yorkshire range, XPress S32 Multi-Port can save up to 75% on installation time when compared with a typical installation, because with Multi-Port, instead of the traditional four fittings, only one is required! With three less tees required, three less tube cuts and six less joints to press, the time savings soon add up and with heat free fitting, XPress is quick and cost effective to install and offers significant benefits. Being a heat free jointing method means no hot works permits are required, reducing costly insurance premiums and the clean jointing technique results in an absence of flux residue, making the flushing process quicker and simpler. The XPress S32 Multi-Port includes up to four key ports for a pressure gauge, temperature gauge, test port and drain off, although two and three port variants are also available in the range. Pegler Yorkshire’s product market manager Kathleen Bramwell said: “The new S32 Multi-Port in the XPress Copper range is the perfect choice where space is limited as well as for those looking for cost savings on installation, time and materials. In a typical installation, the S32 Multi-Port can be fitted in a quarter of the time it would take to fit a more traditional solution and with one fitting used instead of four separate ones; you are saving on materials and space too. The space saving in particular can be a key consideration in a tight plant room.” Manufactured in gun metal, S32 Multi-Port is available in sizes from 67mm to 108mm and its fast and efficient press-fit jointing is suitable for use with copper tube and copper alloy tube, carbon tube and stainless steel tube, providing complete flexibility for use with a variety of materials and in a host of environments. With system guarantees of up to 30 years contractors, specifiers and installers can be confident in both the practicality and longevity of an Xpress Copper system. “Installers are always looking for solutions to problems and the S32 XPress Multi-Port is another example of Pegler Yorkshire providing answers,” continued Kathleen. “The XPress S32 Multi-Port makes for a much simplified installation process. Why use four fittings when one will do?” For further information about any of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560, email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk or visit www.pegleryorkshire.co.uk.

    Reduce Water Wastage With Optiflush

    Available as a battery operated version (OP1) or fully mains operated (OP2), the Optiflush uses demand activated, passive infra-red sensing technology which only activates the flush when required, thus saving water. When Optiflush senses movement in the cloakroom, it stores this knowledge and only activates the flush after a delay period set by the installer. During the delay period, subsequent uses of the cloakroom are not detected, thus the flush only operates to a set cycle. Once the delay period is up, the Optiflush activates the solenoid latching valve and water is released for a measured length of time, to fill the cistern and subsequently flush the urinals. Once the flushing is complete, the Optiflush closes the valve, re-sets itself and awaits the next user to begin the cycle again. The system also provides a hygiene flush that operates twice every day. This comes into operation if the cloakroom is not used regularly and is of particular use in locations such as schools, where the cloakroom may be left unused for up to six weeks. During this time, the unit will still activate twice daily to ensure the continued hygiene of the system is maintained. Optiflush can be surface mounted on a wall or recess into a standard double patress box. Usually, the product control box is situated in close proximity to the valve, so the components are supplied pre-wired to simplify installation. The choice of location is important, because Optiflush needs to be in the best position to sense movement in the room. To aid with installing the product correctly, it comes complete with an audible test mode setting. This allows the installer to clearly hear if the unit is sensing movement by approaching it from a number of different directions. The flexibility of the Optiflush stems from its setting controls. A simple set of control switches enables the installer to vary the delay time between flushes and the fill time of the cistern. This feature ensures that variations such as pressure ratings or cistern sizes can easily be accommodated. A Stopvalve should be positioned upstream of the Optiflush valve, to allow for quick and easy servicing and regulation. Optiflush is designed and built to the very highest standards and as well as saving water, features a valve that allows full compliance with the Water Regulation requirements. These requirements are concerned with the amount of water utilised per hour in the flushing process and state that no more than 3 flushes per hour are permissible. This clearly calls for an accurate means of water control and the Optiflush has been designed to deliver the maximum amount of flexibility in this regard. For those concerned with saving water and ease of installation, Optiflush is the obvious choice.

    Put Your Faith In The Original Yorkshire Fitting

    The original Yorkshire Integral Solder Ring fitting remains the best on the market, but it has not stopped others trying to copy its success with low quality imitations.The Yorkshire Integral Solder Ring (ISR) capillary fitting was developed by Yorkshire Fittings in 1934 and represented a major breakthrough for the industry. The influence of this copper fitting can hardly be overstated, having introduced a completely new concept to the developing plumbing and heating industry and it is no exaggeration to say its contribution to the growth of copper plumbing in the UK and overseas is unparalleled. Such is the strength of the brand that “Yorkshire” has become the generic name for all integral solder ring fittings. This success has encouraged cut-price replicas onto the market and while most people recognise the real thing when they see it, some purchasers are still choosing what they believe to be genuine Yorkshire products only to be disappointed when it comes to installation. Inferior solder ring fittings are being chosen on price alone and will not perform to the same standards as Yorkshire fittings and using the right products is not just desirable - it is essential. Poor quality fittings can lead to a whole host of problems, including installation failure, which could cost thousands of pounds to put right and may actually endanger life. Lead bearing solders can also constitute a threat to public health and the use of sub standard products can have serious repercussions, particularly for Corgi registered installers. Poor quality products cast a shadow over the industry and the reputation of the installer alike, so it makes sense to choose fittings that will do the job right first time. The last thing an installer needs is a reputation for bad installation.If in any doubt, customers should contact Yorkshire direct for confirmation but the real fitting can be distinguished in several ways. The Most obvious visible sign is the ‘YP’ logo stamped on every fitting. This stands for ‘Yorkshire Portable’ and confirms the fitting is from Yorkshire and contains a 100% lead free solder. Pegler Yorkshire Marketing Services Manager Mark Westmoreland said, “With so many replicas in the marketplace, the safest course for installers to take is to put their faith in the genuine article. The original Yorkshire fitting remains enduringly popular with specifiers and installers because it provides value, convenience, quality and most importantly assurance that the product will continue to work long after installation is complete.” While responsible manufacturers continue to test their products to the highest standards, there is a hardcore of those who are happy to offer the market cheap rubbish that will not stand the test of time. The quality of the original Yorkshire fitting is such that it comes with a 25-year guarantee against manufacturing defects – which remains one of the best guarantees the industry has to offer. While Yorkshire continues to develop new and exciting products, the original Yorkshire Fitting remains the first and only choice for many. The fact is anyone who is anyone in the industry knows the Yorkshire fitting as the genuine article and still asks for it by name. The continuing success of this market-leading product shows their trust and confidence in the world’s most famous fitting is not misplaced.

    The Terrier Push-Fit Range from Pegler Yorkshire

    The existing Terrier range continues to offer a selection of compression TRV’s and MRV’s with push-fit adaptors, which enable the range to be used with many varieties of pipe, but further to this the best of Terrier technology has now been combined with Tectite technology to deliver an integrated push-fit radiator product that truly offers the best of both worlds and delivers the customer a product with proven technology at its heart. The Terrier push-fit range delivers many benefits and advantages to the installer and end user alike over products. Speed of installation has been a key consideration and push-fit technology means many fitting complications are removed, thus greatly saving time on site in the long run when installing. The benefit to the end user is the reliability and economy settings, which save all important costs. The “push” element of jointing the Terrier push-fit is instantaneous and the simple tool-free jointing action requires no secondary operations in awkward areas and there is much less chance of damaging chrome pipe as a result. Terrier push-fit has also been designed to be less complicated to install and products can be prepared and joints completed in a fraction of the time taken previously and all these factors result in significant cost savings. The flexibility of Terrier is also an added benefit. A simple demountable tool has been designed for use with the product, which allows for maximum flexibility in both installation and alignment. This makes Terrier Push-Fit the ideal solution should it prove necessary to re-align the pipe work at a later stage, as you can do so with the minimum of fuss and inconvenience. The range comprises 23 products (including a scribe and deburring tool) and includes an integral push-fit mechanism within the TRV with or without separate push-fit fittings. Straight fittings and elbows will also be sold separately in 10mm and 15 mm options and the range is equally at home with plastic, copper and chrome pipe. As you would expect, the quality of the Thermostatic Radiator Valve will never be compromised and is still offered in polished chrome and approved to EN215. The TRV is also available as a compression product along with the standard push-fit variation. “The Push-Fit range introduces a new installation technique into the Terrier range,” explained Product Manager Sindar Singh, “We can now offer all the best attributes of push-fit and Terrier technology in one product. The use of this Terrier and Tectite technology combination provides the ultimate product in terms of brand and reliability. This has been on the wish list of many installers and has now become a reality.”

    Disability Needs In The Bathroom

    New revisions are a move away from making buildings accessible and useable by the disabled and more towards making buildings and products accessible and useable by all – able and less able alike. Washbasins and bath taps must be capable of being operated using a clenched fist, so lever action, push button or electric brassware may be better options than the conventional twist/turn taps. Pegler Yorkshire has developed a range of products in all these categories, with development cantering around products that can be used equally by all. For easy turn handles and smooth good looks, the Leger range has proved popular with able and less able users alike, with their easy turn lever handles. For those with more specific needs, the PERFORMA QTEL tap comes complete with an extended lever for even easier operation. Both can be turned on or off with an elbow or closed fist. Those with special needs can also be more vulnerable to scalding hot water temperatures, but this can be easily countered by the use of a Thermostatic Mixing Valve or TMV. A TMV works by mixing hot and cold water at a safe pre-set temperature, making accidental scalding a thing of the past. A TMV valve is usually installed on the water supply leading to the bath, since this is where the risk of scalding is greatest, but they can be used on all outlets where there is a perceived risk. Some manufacturers like Pegler Yorkshire also offer products with a TMV included – usually for bath and shower mixers where the risk of scalding is greatest. Examples from Pegler Yorkshire are the TMV2 approved Leger L555 or the PERFORMA 555QT Bath and Shower mixer, both stylish and easy to operate. Combining water safety with ease of use ensures that bathrooms remain places of cleanliness and safety.

    The Signia Range from Pegler Yorkshire

    The current range of taps offers a complete cross sectional approach in pricing, style and design, from traditional and modern styles like Sequel and Signia, through to the exciting and new minimalist designs of Xia. In most cases, the ranges are also available with matching showers at affordable prices. The Signia range has proved particularly popular. The high demand for this distinctive selection of taps and mixers has seen new products developed for the range in order to better meet the needs of customers who have consistently request Signia throughout 2007. The smooth curves of the Signia range create a natural, organic look that makes them aesthetically pleasing to the touch and the eye. All models have a graceful curved lever control, which allows smooth, single handed adjustment of both water temperature and flow. This marriage of form and function has made Signia justly popular, as all models in the range conform to Francis Pegler’s eco-friendly water conservation policy and incorporate the latest technology. There are several models currently on offer in the Signia range. These include basin taps, bath taps, the highly popular monobloc basin mixer that comes complete with click waste and a deck bath filler. Completing the Signia range is the deck bath/shower mixer, which comes complete with shower kit. An additional monobloc bath filler has also been added to the range due to popular demand. Pegler Yorkshire Product Manager Mike Dickinson said, “Given the quality, style and functionality of Signia, it is no surprise it proved to be so popular last year. Pegler Yorkshire has always been at the forefront of designing and manufacturing taps that are kind to the environment, while incorporating the latest technology, so as demand for water saving products has increased our range of taps and mixers has proved increasingly popular. Good looking taps are simply not enough any more.”

    Going with the flow at Butlins!

    The complete refurbishment of all bathrooms at the site, a staggering 1200 in total, commenced a short time ago with the Pegler Yorkshire’s Ebro basin tap being fitted in each and every one. The Ebro basin tap forms part of a new range from Francis Pegler with Butlins being the first customer to order. The product is a lever operated, quarter turn tap with ceramic disc technology which ensures longevity and superior product quality. “We chose Pegler Yorkshire because of their credibility and reputation within the industry,” commented Shaun Brady, Deputy Facilities Manager at Butlins Bognor Regis. “This is the first time that we have used them and we were terribly impressed with the aesthetics and robustness of the tap. It looked and it felt like a quality product.” The Ebro range from Francis Pegler is characterised by minimalistic styling. Flow straighteners are fitted as standard on all basin taps and include an aerator to soften water flow and create a ‘champagne’ effect on all monobloc basin fittings. The range comprises basin, bath, bidet, kitchen and mono bath mixer which delivers exceptional flow rates even at low pressures. “One of the main reasons we chose the Ebro tap was for its ceramic disc operation. We have experienced problems in the past with lime scale build up and ceramic discs are typically more resistant to this,” commented Shaun. “From a long term maintenance point of view this definitely made the product very attractive.” In line with current nationwide water saving initiatives Pegler Yorkshire also offer a water saving option on the range which keeps the Francis Pegler range at the very forefront of water saving technology developments. As one of the country’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of design led, high quality taps, showers, mixers, valves and fittings, Pegler Yorkshire continues to be market leaders for innovation and customer service.

    The Heat is on for Longhurst Group – Thanks to Pegler Yorkshire

    Longhurst Group, an organisation with over 16,000 homes has already incorporated many renewable and energy efficient technologies into its properties but is continually looking for products that will not only make these more efficient but also help with the energy costs for tenants. Andy Patchitt, development and new business manager for Longhurst Group commented: “Our organisation, like many, can play a key part in helping to meet environmental targets and tackle fuel poverty issues.  We are keen to investigate innovative methods of improving the building fabric performance and fuel efficiency.” One, new to market product that the Longhurst Group in conjunction with L&H Homes has been trialling, is the Terrier i-Temp PRC (Programmable Radiator Control) developed by leading manufacturer Pegler Yorkshire.  The trial was part of controlled field trial to enable Pegler Yorkshire to validate the calculated energy savings, which have resulted in a saving of 30% on heating costs compared to traditional TRVs. The Terrier i-Temp allows the time and temperature in each room to be fine tuned with no change to the master programmer.  This energy saving advancement prevents heat wastage as the end user can focus heat within individual rooms when required.  For example a typical user would normally heat the whole house in a number of time periods, but only use rooms at certain points of the day, the Terrier i-Temp can be set to reflect this ensuring no heat wastage in other rooms which results in inevitable energy saving. This revolutionary new product is just a simple upgrade to an existing heating system; the PRC simply attaches to most brands of thermostatic radiator valves.  It upgrades to the majority of existing TRV bodies, with adaptors provided within the pack.  Products available include the terrier i-temp i30 PRC for vertical fitted valves and the i35 PRC for horizontal mounted valves. Both products are available with thermostatic valve bodies if required for a completely new installation. The trial was conducted on two identical three bedroom terrace new build homes.  One home was fitted using traditional TRVs set at appropriate temperatures for the individual rooms and the other with the Terrier i-Temp.  With the heating timing profile of the PRCs in the second property set to optimise the energy saving for each room.  The gas usage was monitored over a three month period at regular intervals. The results showed that during just one 24 hour period the Terrier i-Temp property saved 9.17kg of CO2 energy, equating to £1.73 and a total of 44 hours of heating.  This PRC will provide huge benefits for all types of applications both domestic and commercial.  It can play a significant role in reducing the carbon emission for existing housing stock, social housing, care homes and multiple apartments with a central heat source. In addition, compared to other energy saving installation methods, terrier i-temp upgrades to existing valves quickly which will save time and money, its performance payback could be realised within just eight months. “With heating identified as one of the highest domestic carbon emitters it was apparent that there was a real market niche to address this topical issue,” commented Sindar Singh product market manager for Pegler Yorkshire. “Considerable data collection has taken place with a full energy saving trial conducted. The results were compelling and demonstrated that Terrier i-Temp represents significant cost saving benefits on gas usage.” The Terrier i-Temp is the first of its kind to be recognised as an Energy Saving Trust recommended product. Andy commented: “We are pleased to have been a part of this exciting trial the evidence shows that it really does provide a cost and energy saving benefit.  The child lock and anti-theft locking system already incorporated into the PRC are useful additions to the product.  “Because of this product being so new to the market we believe we will need to help residents to fully understand the advantages of the Terrier i-Temp.  I believe once they see the benefits they will be behind the product as much as we are.” For further information about the Terrier i-Temp visit - http://www.saveonheatingbills.co.uk  Althernatively for information about any of of Pegler Yorkshire’s products call 01302 560 560 or  email brochures@pegleryorkshire.co.uk

    Pegler Yorkshire Helps Elson Sprint Ahead

    The manufacturer of combi boiler packages is using Tectite Sprint at its North-East factory, where it pre-fabricates units off-site. Completed units are simply transported to site and attached to the “first-fix” connections in apartments and houses. Elson previously made many of its boiler connections with end feed fittings, but recently converted to 15mm and 22mm Tectite Sprint push-fit fittings following a meeting with the Yorkshire Fittings’ specifier sales team. Tectite Sprint fittings are manufactured from copper or DZR brass in sizes from 10mm to 28mm. Fittings are compatible with copper tube, PB and PEX pipe, and provide electrical continuity in a non-demountable slim-line design that results in increased mechanical strength. The “push” element of jointing Tectite Sprint fittings is instantaneous, and the fittings require no secondary operations such as soldering, twisting, tightening or locking. Tectite Sprint is already being put to good use on Elson’s Megaflo packaged hot water heaters and Coral E electric flow boilers. One of the company’s current major orders is for the Broughton Green Residential Development in Salford, Manchester. Almost ninety Megaflo Packages have already been fitted with Tectite Sprint for this contract, and the units also feature draining valves and Kuterlite compression fittings. The use of quality products on its packages is of great importance to Elson, as Managing Director Mike McDonald explains, “We pride ourselves on our reputation for quality packaged solutions, so it’s important to us to use brand name products from companies like Yorkshire Fittings.” The installations have resulted in significant labour savings, as Mike illustrates, “Tectite Sprint has given us much greater diversity with managing our labour as it’s such a simple product to use. It’s already saving us around eight minutes per unit on the cold water blending assembly for our Coral E range. As we make 2,000 units every year it will soon add up – we estimate in the region of seven working weeks a year.” Other benefits of the heat-free installation method mean Elson employees no longer have to work with potentially dangerous naked flames, and no Hot Works Permits or costly supplementary insurance premiums are required. Tectite Sprint is offered with a guarantee of up to 30 years and is available at plumbers and builders merchants nationwide.

    Pegler Yorkshire in Heaven with Community 7 Housing

    A Thermostatic Mixing Valve or TMV is a mechanical device that mixes hot and cold water to deliver warm water to the end-user at a safe, pre-set temperature, thus preventing scalding. The device works by means of a temperature sensitive part, which varies the amount of hot and cold water entering the valve. This delivers mixed water at a constant temperature and allows for the valve to be shut down if either water supply fails. TMV’s are a legal requirement in Scotland and it seems likely they will be incorporated into the Building Regulations for England and Wales in the future. Many responsible groups, including Community 7 are already installing products certified by the BuildCert TMV2 Scheme to stay ahead of likely legislative changes, but also to fulfil their duty of care to their residents. Community 7 Assets Manager Carl Henderson said, “ Compliance with TMV2 has been the key driver for this product. Given that the legislation is not current in England as yet, it was felt there was a need to respond sooner rather than later. Community 7 consider the welfare of our customers as paramount to our service delivery, which made a TMV2 bath and shower mixer an obvious choice to safeguard our tenants best interests.” The TMV2 compliant bath and shower mixer is as attractive as it is functional and enables tenants to shower with confidence, safe in the knowledge that the temperature can never become hot enough to scald. Pegler Yorkshire Product Manager Mike Dickinson said, “Pegler Yorkshire is delighted to be supplying Community 7 with our latest shower mixers. While not yet law in England, choosing TMV2 products now makes a sensible choice for those wishing to stay ahead of the game while ensuring duty of care to residents has been fulfilled.” Community 7 chose Pegler Yorkshire by reputation and most importantly, in the wake of tenant opinion, which came out in favour of Pegler Yorkshire products. Carl Henderson explained, “ Various enquiries led me to Pegler to advise on a product that could comply with TMV2 and at the same time offer a product that had potential low maintenance qualities. During my search, I discovered that Pegler is part of the Fusion supply chain and as such I was happy to present the product for consideration. Following consultation with Community 7 and our tenants, it was decided to embark on the supply for this Pegler Yorkshire shower mixer.” Pegler Yorkshire’s products are renowned for their excellence and the low maintenance qualities of the Pegler Yorkshire portfolio is a feature relied on by many customers in the social housing sector. While the primary concern when specifying this product is the comfort and safety of the end user, this must go hand in hand with low maintenance and ease of use for the end user. Both Pegler Yorkshire and Community 7 take the opinions of tenants very seriously for many reasons. Community 7 need to be sure the products they are specifying meet their requirements as well as the needs of their tenants and for Pegler Yorkshire customer feedback is vital when improving on and developing new products. “Where we have installed these particular shower mixers the feedback response has been very positive, “ explained Carl, “Typical comments include ‘easy to use’ and ‘much better than what we had before.’ The product fits in very well with the boiler being closely located to the bathroom. The temperature control is consistent and more to the point, safe.” Pegler Yorkshire offer a complete range of products developed for the social housing sector. This includes everything from the latest Thermostatic Mixing Valves, Thermostatic Radiator Valves (including the Belmont range), taps with easy turn handles to Eco Taps developed to reduce water wastage. Looking to the future, Pegler Yorkshire will continue to work in partnership with groups like Community 7 to deliver the products they need and the service tenants deserve. “Pegler offer a range of products that remain in my opinion a robust product,” explained Carl, “The characteristics of the shower mixer fit in very nicely in the maintenance world of social housing. There are of course further programmes of work through the Fusion framework that will no doubt take advantage of products supplied by Pegler.”

    XPress & Tectite Get Top Arena Billing

    The Arena development by Laing Homes comprises one to four bedroom properties in self-contained buildings of up to four storeys. Each building has its water delivered through a riser, which feeds directly from the cold water pump mains to a central point within the building. The risers then deliver water to each individual apartment via a network of pipes. Each riser features XPress Copper press-fit fittings, Tectite Pro push-fit valves and Tectite Sprint push-fit fittings. Seven risers out of a total of twenty-three have been installed so far, with XPress Copper fittings in sizes up to 54mm being used. All the Pegler Yorkshire products on the risers use heat-free jointing techniques. XPress Copper fittings are compressed onto copper tube using a press-fit tool to achieve a sound joint. Tectite Pro push-fit quarter turn ball valves have a full bore design providing enhanced flow. They are jointed through a simple push action, which requires no additional operations such as twisting or locking, and can also be demounted. Tectite Sprint push-fit fittings provide a low profile and mechanically strong joint to copper tube, PEX or PB pipe. The risers have been designed and installed by Integra Utility Services; the Developer and Utility Services Division of Severn Trent Metering Services. Nigel Brewer, Operational Supervisor with Integra, has used XPress Copper fittings on previous projects. “It’s quick, clean and a great product”, says Nigel. “It’s loads quicker than soldering or brazing a joint, particularly in the larger sizes, and the fact that it’s heat-free and no Hot Works Permit is needed is a real advantage.” Speaking about the project, Pegler Yorkshire’s Sales Development Manager Martin Dowey said, “Heat-free products like Tectite and XPress provide installers and developers with significant installed cost savings. Integra is already seeing the benefits at The Arena, and is now using our products on other projects.” XPress press-fit fittings and System tubes are available in a variety of material options for a range of applications in sizes up to 108mm. The Tectite range of push-fit fittings also comprises different material and applications options, and is available in sizes up to 54mm.

    Chase Farm and Barnet Hospitals Advance with Pegler Yorkshire

    When EMCOR Engineering Services needed a range of metal fittings for two ongoing projects with Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals NHS Trust, they chose Pegler Yorkshire push-fit products. Tectite Sprint and Tectite Pro were being used on domestic services, when Tectite Advance was brought to their attention. EMCOR decided to employ Tectite Advance in the mental health unit refurbishment at Barnet and in four villas at Chase Farm and to date in excess of 10,000 fittings have been installed. EMCOR is one of the UK’s most experienced independent specialist mechanical and electrical and public health services providers and Pegler Yorkshire were the obvious choice to provide the fittings, since the two companies have worked together before and EMCOR are familiar with Pegler Yorkshire products and have found them to be reliable. Gary Lewin, EMCOR’s Senior Engineer said, “The primary reason for choosing Tectite Advance was the ease of use and speed of installation the product provides. Hospital projects need to be delivered to a very high standard and on time. As with other Pegler Yorkshire products, Advance is a good looking product of quality and does the job well.” As the first carbon steel push-fit jointing system, Tectite Advance can deliver cost savings of up to 70% when compared to traditional jointing methods and with no special tools or threading required. Speed of installation is unrivalled, which was an important consideration for these two hospital projects. The refurbishment at Barnet has been a particularly important project, since the old 1960’s building was in need of a complete makeover. All the Pegler Yorkshire products on these projects use heat-free jointing techniques. Tectite Pro, Sprint and Advance can all be jointed by a simple push action, which requires no additional operations such as twisting or locking. Tectite Advance is designed to be non-demountable, to supply a mechanically strong joint with a working pressure and temperature ratings of up to 10 bar at 114°C. Pegler Yorkshire’s Divisional Sales Manager David Craven said, “We are delighted to have supplied EMCOR with a range of fittings for these two hospital projects. Tectite Sprint and Pro are well-established products already, but Advance is set to revolutionise the installation of commercial heating and chilled water systems. Barnet and Chase Farm are two of the first to see this new product in action, but more examples of its use are coming through all the time as the benefits of the product are realised.” For a professional installation, clients need to be confident that the product they choose will do the job and will be easy to use and Pegler Yorkshire products have always enjoyed this reputation. Gary Lewin again, “This is the first time anything like Tectite Advance has been used by our installation team and it has gone fairly smoothly. The original intention was to use plastic fittings, but on reflection it was decided to use metal fittings for these particular projects instead.” Pegler Yorkshire products are renowned for their excellence and the low maintenance qualities of the portfolio is a feature relied on by many clients. While the primary concern when specifying this product is quality and speed of installation, this must go hand in hand with low maintenance and reliability and when Advance is used as a system with galvanized or plastic coated XPress Carbon steel system tube, it benefits from a 10-year system guarantee. Looking to the future, Pegler Yorkshire will continue to work in partnership with high profile companies like EMCOR to deliver the products they need and the service their clients deserve. With obvious benefits for professional installers, Tectite Advance is set to become the next generation in push-fit systems.

    Pegler Flushes Out Water Savings with Optiflush

    As a precious commodity, water needs to be conserved as a vital resource for the future as well as for current use. The Water Byelaws highlight the need to prevent water wastage, unnecessary consumption of water, contamination of water and general misuse of water. Pegler, in recognising these requirements have now developed their Optiflush urinal flush controller for mains or battery operation which they claim can actually cut water usage by up to 80% assisting in minimising fuel costs. Optiflush uses the latest passive infra-red sensing technology which provides accurate control over the amount of water used. A detector senses movement in the cloakroom and activates the valve to flush the urinal after a pre-set time delay. (During the delay period, subsequent users not being detected). At the end of the delay the unit activates the flush. Once the flushing operation is complete, Optiflush closes the valve, re-sets itself and waits for the next user to trigger the cycle again. Maximum hygiene standards are thus maintained whilst minimising water usage particularly during lax periods of evenings and weekends. Optiflush has incorporated a hygiene flush which automatically operates every 12 hours if the cloakroom has not been used during this time. Operating in compliance with byelaws 82 and 83 which are concerned with amount of water used per hour in the flushing process, and with the BS6700 requirement of allowing no more than 3 flushes per hour, Optiflush has been designed to give the maximum amount of flexibility during set up. This allows the time interval between flushes and the length of flush to be varied to meet each installation's specific needs. Pegler's Optiflush is easy to install. The product is located to always sense movement in the room. During set up only an audible test mode setting allows the installer to hear if the product is sited correctly by sensing movement on approaching it from different directions. Regulations dictate a qualified electrician should install the mains Optiflush version which does result in a higher initial cost but thereafter no further maintenance is required. With the battery version maintenance is minimised - the unit is fitted with standard PP3 alkaline batteries (with an anticipated battery life of around 2 years) and has a warning signal to indicate when the battery is low similar to that of a smoke detector alarm unit.

    The Modern Approach To Commissioning

    Pegler Yorkshire is constantly striving to develop new system solutions, capable of meeting the changing needs of installers, contractors and specifiers. The Proflow valves range provides one of the most comprehensive selections of products on the market. The Proflow Venturi is one example of a product with a proven reputation for quality and reliability, and when compared with more conventional products, offers the ultimate approach to commissioning.Proflow Venturi offers a unique and modern approach to commissioning modern heating and chilled water systems. The concepts incorporated into this valve provide significant benefits to consultants, contractors and commissioning engineers, enabling systems to be designed, installed and handed over without complications. Choosing the Proflow Venturi offers many advantages over the more commonly used fixed orifice plate. The venturi orifice delivers much greater measuring accuracy of +/-3% across the entire range of valves and using the venturi principle negates the need for 3-5 times the pipe diameter of straight pipe to gain an accurate reading. The trumpet shaped design of the venturi nozzle will return a higher, cleaner signal (typically 10-30 kpa dependent on flow rate). This is achieved without the pressure loss associated with more conventional orifice plates, which makes commissioning easier and simpler than ever before. At the heart of all Proflow Venturi valves is the integrated fixed orifice venturi. The venturi principle was first demonstrated in 1797; but in simple terms, water is accelerated through the venturi orifice, which increases the velocity of the flow and the pressure differential, proportionally amplifying the signal generated. Significant pressure drop is recovered after the water has passed through the venturi nozzle. The Proflow Venturi uses a quarter turn ball valve for isolation and a needle valve for regulation in the same body. This unique design feature enables the valve to be used for isolation purposes without altering the setting on the regulation needle. This all makes Proflow Venturi easy to regulate, isolate, install and operate. In the traditional method of commissioning, all commissioning stations usually require a certain length of straight pipeline, excluding fittings, upstream from the valve to ensure correct flow measurement. This length varies between five and ten pipe diameters, depending on the manufacturers recommended guidelines. So if the valve size is 50mm, for example, the length required will be between 250mm and 500mm. The dimension is of course increased if the valve is fitted immediately after the pump. Some commissioning stations also require a downstream straight length. With Proflow Venturi technology, (except for immediately after a pump) no straight lengths are required either up or down stream and this can be a serious advantage in a tight plant room and is a more elegant and modern method of commissioning. The Proflow Venturi has also been designed for installation in any orientation, even with the test points facing down. This feature is possible due to the creation of a cylindrical chamber around the outside of the venturi cartridge and another chamber in the housing. Two pilot holes from the high and low pressure sides of the venturi feed the pressure differential into the chambers, on the outside of which are located the test points. The pilot holes from the venturi to the chamber are positioned at 3 and 9 o’ clock positions when the valve is positioned upright. Therefore, should either pilot hole fill with debris (when positioned pointing down) the other will be pointing up, allowing the signal to be measured. “The Proflow Venturi is suitable for connecting to most steel, copper or plastic pipe systems and from a technical viewpoint has been optimised to accurately deliver design flow rates and signal and setting data to ensure trouble free installation and operation, “ said Pegler Yorkshire Product manager Barrie Plant, “This valve delivers high accuracy and performance and has no rival as a modern commissioning tool.”

    Pegler Yorkshire Shower Regulator Saves Water

    Showers are now a standard fixture in most homes. They are quicker, more hygienic, and more convenient than a bath and are also usually more environmentally friendly. Running a bath sees the second highest use of energy in the home, but taking a shower instead can save gallons of water. Showers are generally more environmentally friendly, since a typical five-minute shower uses about 40 litres of water (about half the volume of a standard bath), but a power shower can use up to 20 litres of water per minute and can actually waste more water than a bath!* With water saving at the top of many people’s agenda, Pegler Yorkshire is seeing a real demand for restricting water flow in places of shortage or conservation and as such, have identified the need for a product to regulate the flow of water accordingly. Regulating the flow on shower fittings is ideal, because it does not impact on daily use or the spray pattern, but can make an immediate impact on water conservation. This new regulator is suitable for all products that have a ½ inch BSP male thread and would have a standard hose screwed into it. Installation has been designed to be easy and in most cases the regulator can be fitted after installation of the shower has taken place. This new shower regulator will hold back the flow of water to a maximum limit of 6 litres per minute no matter what the pressure, although the full benefits will only be seen when installed on higher pressures, when bigger water savings can be made. “This product will have a real impact in social housing projects or new build,” explained Pegler Yorkshire Product Manager Mike Dickinson, “In these cases, a good flow is required for bath fill, but restricting the flow on the shower will make a real impact on water saving. This new regulator allows the flow to be restricted on the shower alone, without affecting the flow for bath fill.” Pegler Yorkshire boast a shower portfolio offering a complete range of easy to fit dual control and single sequential showers, in many differing product styles. Single sequential control showers use one ‘simple to use’ control lever to control the shower temperature. These showers are also thermostatically controlled with factory pre-set maximum temperatures to avoid scalding, making these showers ideal for use by the young, the elderly and the less able.
