Combination Units

Gledhill’s combination hot water units have been specially designed to be installed into properties without a loft space and have direct and indirect configurations. The cold water feed tank is incorporated into the combination unit so as a result a separate cold water storage tank is not required resulting in a quicker and simplifier installation as well as reducing costs.

• Standard 1 inch male & female tappings with optional compression fittings available
• High recovery coil available
• Indirect units for use with central heating systems
• BS3198 and 2017 ErP compliant

Twin Coil Cylinders

Gledhill’s Twin Coil hot water cylinder has been specially designed to be used with two heat sources like solid fuel and a conventional boiler or electric boiler. Our Twin Coil cylinders are available in three grades and can be ordered in bespoke sizes and specifications. (Need to be specified at time of ordering)

  • Grade 1: Up to 2.5 bar
  • Grade 2: Up to 1.5 bar
  • Grade 3: Up to 1.0 bar

All of our Twin Coil hot water cylinders are 2017 ErP compliant and come with 10 year warranty along with compression fittings (need to be specified at the time of ordering)

Rectangular Tanks

When a regular hot water cylinder isn’t the solution for the job, Gledhill has rectangular tanks available to be supplied in direct and indirect configurations. Both configuration unit types are gravity fed hot water and can be installed at a high level like in a cupboard or within a roof space.

The Gledhill direct rectangular unit model has been designed for use with all off-peak tariffs. Utilising our market leading HCFC free insulation ensures that the low energy costs are passed onto the customer. The direct combination tank ensures simple and fast installations that will save you money, time, and materials and can be supplied fitted with two 3kW immersion heaters and thermostat to make installation times even faster.
