Heatrae Sadia’s Megaflo Commercial cylinder was awarded first prize in the Commercial HVAC Product of the Year category at this year's H&V awards.
The H&V News Awards are an important event in the heating and ventilation industry, celebrating excellence across all sectors of the building and services sector, honouring products as well as apprentices, installers and contractors. Presented by the comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw, this year’s ceremony was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 25th April 2013.
There are a number of unique benefits which set the Megaflo Commercial apart from its competitors in the HVAC Product of the Year category. The unvented cylinders deliver hot water at up to 90 litres per minute and can heat up to 2,500 litres in less than 60 minutes. Offering either a 6 bar or a unique 10 bar operating pressure, the cylinders are tested to 22.5 bar and the temperature and pressure relief valve can be set at 15 bar.
It has also been ensured that the Megaflo Commercial is an energy efficient product, with 100mm of the latest PU insulation keeping heat loss to a minimum.
John Forster, product manager at Heatrae Sadia commented: “We are absolutely delighted that the Megaflo Commercial was selected as a winner at the prestigious H&V News Awards. With the number of entrants for each award increasing steadily over the years, we are aware that the level of competition was higher than ever.
“We are incredibly proud that the judges recognised our perseverance to always meet the demands of the market and our efforts to tailor the Megaflo Commercial to meet the needs of contractors and specifiers in the commercial arena. The unique addition of the 10 bar operating pressure and the heat recovery capabilities of the cylinder were highlighted as key features that really set it apart.”
