, the UK’s leading supplier of plumbing equipment, has seen demand soar for its solar-specific components and kits, after showcasing the units at the successful Renewables Roadshows during September.
At each of the six roadshows, installers were impressed with Altecnic
’s simple to fit solar storage-to-boiler connection kit, designed to seamlessly integrate a solar storage unit with a pre-existing combination boiler. The accredited 263 connection kit links the boiler to the solar application, drawing free hot water from a cylinder if it is over 40°C, effectively transforming the boiler into an ultra energy efficient system.
Focusing on accreditation and legislation, OEM’s, building contractors and plumbing merchants attending the shows were keen to learn about Altecnic
’s 5218 tempering valve for solar hot water systems, which is the first and only one in the UK to be independently verified as complying with the revised UK Building Regulations Part G 2010. Accredited to BS EN 15092 and approved by BuildCert’s Distribution Tempering Control (DTC) Scheme, the valve must be fitted to any storage vessel capable of exceeding 80°C.
Chris Ramster, sales director at Altecnic

Because Altecnic is committed to sustainability and invests in the development of innovative new products and technologies, we are able to offer components and kits that are exactly what our customers need. Whether its making life easier with our accredited connection kit, or helping them keep the right side of the law by encouraging them to install the essential 5218 tempering valve, we are here to offer advice and guidance in the complex renewables market.”
