As FASTheat incorporates a highly efficient Copper coil, a much smaller than normal cylinder can be used.

This means that large quantities of hot water are not heated and wasted if not required. It also significantly reduces boiler cycling – leading to large savings on fuel bills and more satisfied customers.

If you have a requirement that is not listed above, please contact us as we are confident we can manufacture something to suit.

If you are looking to squeeze your cylinder into a tight space, we also offer slimline versions of our vented hot water cylinders.

Typically measuring, an industry leading, 450mm in diameter including the insulation, these slimmer models are manufactured to the same standards and designs as our vented units.

However thanks to our flexible approach to manufacturing and our use of copper, we can manufacture cylinders as small as 300mm shell, plus the required foam lagging.

We can even place the connections in the best location for the installation, making further savings on installation time and costs.
