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 new 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 new 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 new 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 new 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.”
