These functions include an isolating ball valve (WRAS-approved as a mains stop valve); a pressure reducing valve with strainer; a double check valve; a patented dual reading pressure gauge that shows upstream and downstream pressures; optional connection points for water meters; and a moulded insulation case.
The latest version of the valve includes enhancements to the pressure gauge, enabling readings to be taken at any orientation, meaning that if the unit needs to be fitted upside down, one can still read the gauge as it is reversible. In addition, the Tenant Valve Plus includes an adaptor for connecting Class D water meters, joining the existing optional connection point for Class A meters.
As well as being faster and simpler to install than a traditional chain of valves, the all-in-one cartridge also makes maintenance quicker and easier, and significantly reduces the number of costly leak points.
Martin Nicholson, Divisional Director National Specification of RWC UK, said: “Ensuring a safe, sustainable and metered water supply for every apartment is essential in high-rise buildings. This requires the installation of multiple valves; however, with more apartments squeezed into tighter footprints, installers are being asked to fit these products in smaller spaces. Naturally, this increases the complexity of the job.
“The Tenant Valve Plus by RWC provides a handy solution to this problem, meaning that installers can significantly simplify and speed up the process.
“The valve isn’t specification only and can also be purchased off the shelf, yet we ask anybody who wants to find out more about how it can improve productivity and efficiency to get in touch to arrange a demo.”
