Conex Bänninger is making it easier for contractors and installers to get hold of its >B< Press copper fittings range, with greater availability across different sales channels.
>B< Press has played a part over the past two decades in helping the heating and plumbing industry move away from traditional brazing towards flame-free press solutions. The fittings are suitable for potable water, central heating, chilled water, compressed air, non-medical gases and vacuum applications.
From November, as well as being able to order from selected merchant partners, installers have been able to obtain >B< Press products online, via the Screwfix website.
“More and more the heating and plumbing trade is turning to press as a quick and easy-to-install alternative to brazing,” said Dan Wild, Conex Bänninger’s business unit director for UK and Ireland.
>B< Press is a versatile press fitting system for use with hard, half-hard and soft copper tube, providing a secure, long-life, leak proof joint.
Following the range’s introduction online, it will also be stocked in the omnichannel retailer’s more than 650 branches from January.
Mr Wild said: “This is an exciting new partnership that further extends our customer reach. We are delighted to be adding something new to the Screwfix portfolio, enabling it to offer the complete package of plumbing solutions.”
Households in England and Wales will be able to benefit from £5,000 in government grants through a £450 million Boiler Upgrade Scheme to help install low-carbon heating systems.
