Insufficient headroom for a standard vertical cylinder? - Then a horizontal cylinder may well be the answer. Particularly useful in confined loft spaces these cylinders are configured horizontally and are available either as direct or indirect, which can be supplied with support cradles.
Supplied with high efficiency factory applied insulation these units provide a highly effective and efficient means of providing and storing hot water where headroom is at a premium.
The cylinders are available in three grades - 1, 2, & 3 - with grade 3 generally being selected for normal domestic use. Grades 1 & 2 are made from heavier material and are most often used where improved durability is required.
Alternative heights and diameters are also available where space and water volumes are at a premium.
|Diameter - metric||Diameter - imperial|
Where installation is to be in the loft space consideration as to access through the loft hatch is imperative particularly in regards to the diameter of the cylinder but also its length. Advice is always available!!
