Zehnder re-launches range of radiators and towel warmers New built-in thermal expansion technology means that the Kingspan Environmental’s popular mainstream unvented cylinder range, Albion Ultrasteel Plus, now provides 14% more usable hot water than other standard unvented cylinders that use external expansion vessels. The new V40 test designed to quantify the amount of usable hot water a cylinder produces in normal conditions, is now an essential part of BS EN 12897:2016 standard. The V40 test defines usable hot water as the volume of water that can be drawn from the cylinder at 40deg C. For installers, doing away with the external expansion vessel reduces the job time by around 20 minutes per cylinder.

It fixes easily into ply panelling or into a bespoke racking system in vans and is wall mountable for the workshop, or near the sink for the Power Gel. Made from tough high quality polycarbonate, the Cage comes with predrilled holes for screw fixing. Once installed, the cage allows Big Wipes 4x4, Power Spray and Power Gel to be accessed with just one hand for those very messy jobs. Big Wipes 4x4 wipes and Power Spray contain four powerful cleaning agents and four dermatologically tested skin conditioners to quickly shift all modern construction sealants, adhesives, paints, coatings and grime in an instant. www.bigwipes.com Zehnder has re-launched its Chatsworth Heating brand as Zehnder Professional Radiators and Towel Warmers, a hand-picked range of products specially aimed at installers.

The carbon steel press fitting system offers a fast, effective alternative to traditional methods such as welding. A highly effective pressing method, Megapress connections can be made in less than seven seconds – helping to achieve a 60% reduction in installation time. Compatible with heating and cooling systems, the Viega Megapress system is an effective tool for pressing pipework. This achieves a cleaner and safer method of connection and avoids the need for oils, heavy threading equipment or open flames. The simple to use pressing tool means that even difficult installations such as overhead pipework can be completed safely and effectively. The Megapress connectors feature a special profile-sealing element that encompasses the pipe in three places at the same time, guaranteeing a leak-proof connection. This seal makes it possible to press seamless, welded, galvanised, industrially varnished epoxy resin-coated and black steel pipes with one and the same connector and crucially, does not compromise the integrity of the pipe. The pressing tool is supplied in a practical case, which includes three press jaws (½”, 3 ⁄ 8” and 1”), three press rings for nominal widths of 1¼” to 2” and hinged press jaws, to carry out press connections in restricted spaces.
