Altecnic achieves ‘A’ for efficiency

As part of its commitment to promoting responsible domestic energy usage, Altecnic’s fully accredited Ecocal thermostatic radiator valve has achieved the coveted European ‘A’ efficiency rating.

Developed and manufactured to the highest international standards in Italy, Altecnic’s patented Ecocal has been tested against the stringent requirements of the European Valve Manufactures’ Association, ‘Thermostatic Efficiency Label’ (TELL).

The rigorous process classifies the energy rating of individual valves by examining the extent to which the user can detect immediate cost-savings and how easy the device is to fit and operate, all valves must also be BS EN 215 certified.

Specifically engineered for both retro-fit and new installations, Ecocal is available in 8mm, 10mm and 15mm and is designed with a serrated sliding tail piece allowing easy installation by helping to prevent alterations to pipework and ensuring PTFE sealant bonds securely.

The straight or angled device has a fully reversible body for either vertical or horizontal fit that is suitable for on flow or return pipework, providing installers with ultimate flexibility.

Stylishly designed to complement modern living, the Ecocal is available in a white and chrome finish with matching lockshields and are liquid filled to instantly react to changes in ambient temperature. A positive off position also allows the radiator to be removed without the need to be drained.

Gary Perry, technical director commented: “Our commitment to product excellence has driven us to develop Ecocal to be one of the most energy efficient thermostatic valves on the market. As with every product in our range, our customers know that when they specify an Ecocal they are assured of a high quality, fully accredited device that are easy to fit and maintain.”
