Wavin – Europe’s leading supplier of water management, plumbing and drainage systems – is harnessing the power of its Hep2O brand to better promote the company’s innovative range of underfloor heating (UFH) products. Hep2O is the UK’s most successful push-fit plumbing system for hot and cold water supply and is a perfect ‘brand parent’ for the UFH portfolio: currently known in the market under the Thermoboard name.
The range will be now known as Hep2O underfloor heating, and comprises a comprehensive line up of panels, piping, manifolds and heating controls that make the installation of a UFH system simple, fast and straightforward regardless of floor structure. The unified range will be known as Hep2O Plumbing & Heating.
The move to broaden the Hep2O range to encompass UFH as well as plumbing will provide installers with a comprehensive range of products and ancillaries to fulfil the needs of most projects, whether new build or RMI. Under the Hep2O Underfloor Heating brand, installers will be able to take advantage of FullSpec, a complete design and project support service and QuickCalc, an instant online project quotation tool.
Gareth Samuel, Hep2O product manager, explains; “Hep2O plumbing products have always been about innovation. The addition of Hep2O underfloor heating is a further example of that innovation. It means the trade has effectively to remember one name, and one name only – Hep2O – for high quality plumbing and heating solutions.
By bringing UFH into the Hep2O stable we want to encourage installers, who previously may not have considered underfloor heating but are familiar and confident in the Hep2O name, to give it a go.”
“UFH is a growing market and a well documented way of reducing energy bills, so the launch of Hep2O underfloor heating is timely,” he continues.
As part of the brand alignment Hep2O underfloor heating will be even more widely available through a nationwide network of stockists.
