JG Layflat Pipe

December 16, 2013 | Comments Off

JG Speedfit are proud of a recent addition to their product range – JG Layflat Pipe, as it turly represents the companys objective to provide cutting-edge plumbing and heating solutions that allow for swift, smooth and easy installations. The JG Layflat pipe simply lays flat, stays flat and is ultra flexible, allowing greater control and ease of movement making it possible for a single person to meander and route the pipe as they wish. Transporting the JG Layflat pipe is hassle-free in comparison to copper equivalents, requiring no ‘clumsy’ installation tool boxes, being very light to carry and compact enough to be loaded into a small space whilst moving from the shop to the construction site. Regardless of whether you are using a 25m or a 150m JG Layflat coil, the pipe is consistently easy to remove from the packaging. Once installed, the JG Layflat pipe proves to save energy due to the specific thermal conductivity properties of plastic, allowing minimal heat loss. This makes it the perfect choice for any UFH system, especially when powered by condensing boilers, ground-source and air-source heat pumps. For more information on JG Layflat, visit the JG website at www.speedfit.co.uk where video installation guides are also available.

No need to guess about dosing levels

November 21, 2013 | Comments Off

The latest version of the Heating System Size Calculator App from Fernox includes underfloor heating installations as well as traditional central heating systems. In addition, it now provides two methods of calculating the volume of a domestic or commercial central heating system. Free to download, the app calculates the size of a central heating system and recommends the correct chemical water treatment products and the dosage level required to extend the life of the boiler and system – removing some of the guesswork for dosing, treating and protecting the system from damaging corrosion. System size can be calculated either by input (The boiler KW rating) or by output (The number of radiators or underfloor heating circuits). The new version of the app also allows installers to join Fernox’s social media channels as well as facilitating a direct link to the company’s technical helpline if further assistance is required. To download the new app simply search for: Heating System Size Calculator or visit: www.fernox.com.

 

JG Speedfit UFH Video Tutorials

November 14, 2013 | Comments Off

Not everyone is an expert in Underfloor Heating and for that reason JG Speedfit have introduced a set of UFH video tutorials to help plumbing professionals better understand the technical and installation details behind the UFH system. The videos are easy to follow self-explanatory guides that can give confidence to even a first time Underfloor Heating installer. Each video features a professional demonstrating how the JG system is put together in a step-by-step manner. Along with a best practice explanation of each JG pipe fixing system, a full breakdown is also provided on how best to prepare the floor, how to connect the manifold with the pipework as well as tips on how to test the system once installed. These videos will fully complement our Speedfit Support Campaign, which aims to inform their contractors of the complete Underfloor Heating technical support package offered by the company. The videos are available on their website – www.speedfitUFH.co.uk and YouTube.

The JG Double Check Service Valve

| Comments Off

The new 15mm Double Check/Stop Valve by JG Speedfit is a push-fit valve for the connection of plastic and copper pipe. Designed, manufactured and assembled in the UK, the valve incorporates Speedfit technology and only allows water to flow through in one direction therefore preventing back flow of potential contaminants. This particular check valve has a built in isolator making it two products in one. Simply push the valve fully on to the pipe. Should the need arise to demount the connection, push the collect towards the body of the fitting and pull the pipe to release. Installation can be reduced by around 40% against tradition fixing methods.

Features:

  • Lead free and non toxic
  • BSI and WRAS approved
  • Push-fit and demountable connections
  • No scale build up and corrosion free
