Slimline Copper Cylinders

Made to Measure

We were recently sent a photo from a homeowner of their existing unit, showing the extremely tight space restrictions, as they were looking for a bespoke replacement slimline indirect unit with insulation.

The original unit was 1500 x 300mm however the customer had a bit more room to work with… around 400-420mm diameter to incorporate the insulation, which we were able to manufacture and deliver within 4 working days. This was part of a planned upgrade, which also incorporated replacing the existing flow boiler.
