Reliance Valves selected for prestigious energy-efficient London development

In the heart of Whetstone, London Borough of Barnet, sits the tranquil green neighbourhood development of 14 Oakleigh Road, composed of 41 1-to-2-bedroom apartments. Offering well-constructed homes with outdoor space and access to various parks, the homes reflect a sense of modern and prestigious living. 

High-rise residential developments such as Oakleigh Road require intricate plumbing pipework and ventilation. Miron Energy, the mechanical contractor for this project, needed innovative products that would provide maximum installer safety and ease of use by taking up minimal space and time.

Selected for this project were Reliance Valves Tenant Valve Plus, Easifit TMV and 315i PRV, as well as the Sharkbite Washing Machine Valve.

The Tenant Valve Plus is a compact unit with several valves. This innovative product simplified installation in even the smallest of spaces and, with fewer connections, reduced the risk of leaks across all 41 apartments. 

Designed to control the pressure and temperature of systems, also specified in this London development were Reliance Valves 315i PRV and the Easifit TMV. The project benefitted greatly from both of these solutions in terms of ease of installation and will continue to benefit from their longevity of performance.

The chrome-plated SharkBite Washing Machine Valve reduced the need for separate isolation and double-check valves, further minimising the number of leak points and simplifying installation.

Installing Reliance Valves removed the need for fitting an additional 164 valves for the project, greatly reducing the risk of leaks and unnecessary costs.

Miron Energy have a very good working partnership with RWC. The Reliance Valves range, including the Tenant Valve Plus, provides innovative solutions in terms of saving installation time, while enabling us to in install multiple valves in small spaces. The Tenant Valve Plus added value to the project by reducing the number of leak points due to having fewer connections. Working with RWC on this project was a pleasure; we will incorporate Reliance Valves in our future projects.
