With a background in mechanical and design engineering, Mr Phipps brings a wealth of experience in the HVAC segment to RLS, having served most recently as the chief executive of a large engineering group based in the Middle East. Previously, he held executive roles at several UK and US based companies.

“We’re excited to have Grant as a member of our team, and for him to serve our distributor partners throughout Europe from his base in the UK,” said Paul Schubert, general manager of

RLS. “The addition of Grant, along with a stocked warehouse in the UK that will allow faster delivery to our customers, demonstrates our commitment to growing our business in the European market.”

RLS fittings is fully registered and listed to UL 207 for pressures up to 700 PSI. Since the RLS product line was launched in 2015, its patented technology has been widely adopted as a faster, safer and more consistent method of connecting HVAC/R copper tube, replacing the time-consuming process of brazing. Installers know to look for the letters “RLS” that are stamped into every fitting when it is pressed, assuring a reliable connection has been made.

RLS offers a wide range of fittings, such as couplings, elbows, tees, reducers and more, as well as ancillary products that are compatible with RLS technology, including Y-joints, P-traps, valves, filter driers and sight glasses.

RLS is a subsidiary of Marmon Holdings, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company. For more information, visit www.rapidlockingsystem.com

Whitepaper tackles legionella risk

Low occupancy rates in commercial buildings could be leading to a ticking time bomb of water quality issues according to Guardian Water Treatment.

To help building owners take the right steps to prevent these issues, in particular legionella, the company has launched a new whitepaper – Locked down but not forgotten.

In the whitepaper, Guardian draws on its own data from over 30,000 samples taken from commercial buildings, predominantly in London, over a six-month period starting from April 2020 (when the first lockdown began).
