The push-fit product is one of the first of its kind, says the company, and allows for straighter, neater connections to radiators of all shapes and size as well as free standing baths. It is designed to fit any 15mm Hep2O hot and cold plumbing system, and with a quick adjustment using a pipe cutter, can also be used to connect to standard radiator valves too.
The upstand features grooves at both ends meaning there’s no need for any additional preparation with Hep2O, and at 600mm in length, it can easily be pre-cut to any size if needed. This makes it a suitable addition to high-end bathrooms, towel rails, or designer radiators. It easily clicks into place with Hep2O fittings, unlike most chrome pipes which aren’t compatible with push-fit products.
Copper tails, which are commonly used by installers, can quickly become discoloured, resulting in a messy finish for customers, but the new Hep2O chrome radiator upstands offer customers a clean, long-lasting, and professional finish, says Wavin.
Joana Januesviciute, Territory Product Manager, Hot & Cold Plumbing at Wavin, said: “This upstand has been created because we’ve listened to what our customers need. They want a product that is easy to install, push-fit compatible, and won’t lose its shine over time.
“It’s a hardwearing, innovative, and quality product, which ensures a great looking end-result for homeowners.”
