Pegler Yorkshire Helps to Improve Student Life
16 Nov 2010
A project to revitalise a student building at Nottingham Trent University has used a Pegler Yorkshire product, ‘Tectite Advance’, to facilitate the installation of the heating and cooling water service pipe work.
‘Tectite Advance’, is a carbon steel, push-fit jointing system which is for use on closed circuit heating and chilled water applications and it is designed to allow speedy installation while creating a perfect joint. It also offers guaranteed electrical continuity resulting in the product being popular with contractors and installers.
The project, which was estimated at around £90 million, commenced in July 2008 and has recently been completed. Pegler Yorkshire supplied fitting and pipework in both ‘Tectite Advance’ push fit, up to 54mm, and ‘XPress Carbon’ press fit in the larger sizes up to 108mm.
“We have worked closely with the project team to facilitate a seamless supply and installation process,” commented Clinton Thacker, Area Sales Manager, Pegler Yorkshire. “Onsite installation training and certification was provided covering the whole fittings portfolio to allow the installers to fully appreciate the flexibility of our product range and to see how they are compatible in a variety of applications.”
The project, which forms part of an impressive regeneration programme, sees a striking piece of contemporary architecture joining two Grade II listed buildings, Newton and Arkwright. The work has been closely watched by English Heritage and led by Sir Michael Hopkins, who has been credited with other pieces of modern architecture in Nottingham.
“The use of Tectite Advance alongside XPress Carbon gave significant advantages in reducing installation time,” commented Hiltons Building Services. “Tectite Advance from Pegler Yorkshire fulfilled our requirements resulting in a straightforward and safe installation programme.”
‘Tectite Advance’ forms part of the Tectite family of fittings from Pegler Yorkshire which is its Push–fit jointing range. The range encompasses a wide range of fittings which allow the product to be used in a multitude of applications. ‘Tectite Classic’ is for copper and plastic pipes (15 to 28mm) and is demountable. ‘Tectite Sprint’ is also for copper tube and plastic pipe (15 to 28mm) but has been designed to be the most compact copper push-fit system available.
‘Tectite Pro’ offers a range of enhanced performance, demountable, push-fit fittings (15 to 54mm), which can also be installed on XPress System, galvanised system tube and copper tube. ‘Tectite 316’ is also an enhanced performance fitting made from stainless steel. It is compatible with all previously mentioned tube types as well as 316 stainless steel system tubes.
‘Tectite Advance’ is for installation onto galvanised system tube and is the latest innovation in the Pegler Yorkshire push-fit family.
As the country’s leading manufacturers of high quality fittings, system tube, valves, taps, showers and mixers, Pegler Yorkshire continues to be the market leader for innovation and customer service.
