Hepworth gives Installers the Elbow


Hepworth Building Products, a leading provider of plumbing and drainage solutions has extended its Hep2O range with the launch of the universal Spigot Elbow.

A standard 15mm radiator fitting would require a 15mm Socket Reducer as well as a 10mm 90 degree Elbow Socket Fitting when used with the 10mm barrier pipe now prevalent in heating installations. However the Spigot Elbow eliminates the need for these two products as it is already configured with a 15mm spigot and a 10mm socket.

As an ideal alternative to the existing bulky fittings prevalent in most radiator connections, plumbers can maximize their efficiency as installation time and cost is significantly reduced, with a lower number of joints and fittings required.

As a white product, complimenting white radiators and skirting boards and resulting in an unobtrusive and discreet finish, the Spigot Elbow does not need painting after completion.

Adrian Bristow, Product Design Manager at Hepworth Building Products said: “We are constantly listening to our customers and developing products to meet their needs. Despite the availability of 10mm radiator valves plumbers still prefer to work with 15mm valves, therefore the Spigot Elbow is designed with the installer in mind.”

Allowing a direct connection to radiators, the Spigot Elbow minimises the number of fittings required, resulting in a simple, clean and efficient installation.

The Spigot Elbow is available from all participating merchants.
