Product information

    • Low power outputs 11-29kW and storage capacities of 162-384 litres.
    • Compact, standalone water heating unit for safe and clean domestic hot water generation.
    • No clearances required at the rear and minimal clearances at top and sides allow easy siting in any plant room.
    • Reduces energy use and running costs by maximising condensing water heater performance.
    • Meets the strict standards for efficiencies and NOx emissions (under 37 mg/kWh) in new buildings.
    • Load profiles of XL or XXL and an A rating ensure all models in the range are fully compliant with the ErP (Energy-related Products Directive) regulations.
    • Closely matches hot water demand, reducing wastage of energy.
    • Electronic Anode fitted as standard to protect against corrosion.
    • No top-to-bottom re-circulation kit required due to the heat exchanger coil positioned in the centre of the unit for even heat distribution and reduced likelihood of stratification.
    • Down firing pre-mix modulating burner reduces the risk of scale build up impacting on the heat transfer.
    • Natural gas and LPG water heater options.
    • All components accessible under front cover for ease of service and maintenance.
    • Flexible flue options (see optional extras tab and brochure for details).
    • Full project assistance available from our dedicated hot water expert to help with hot water sizing and selection of equipment to match the application.
    • Extensive back up and support from our team of experienced engineers across the UK.
    • Long-term commitment to spare parts.
    • BIM objects available to assist in design and management
    • Available for next day delivery (dependent on stock availability, charges apply, order cut-off 12pm).
