With the role of building services professionals constantly diversifying due to technological development and economic change, Pipe Center (part of Wolseley UK) has launched a new valve guide to aid specification on the job.

The new guide is specific to Wolseley’s exclusive range of JET valves and is the first of its kind to list products by application – driving efficiency, cutting time and allowing professionals to make more informed choices. The applications covered in the guide are low temperature hot water, domestic hot water, potable water, chilled water and gas.

Its arrival comes as part of an organisation-wide Wolseley transformation project aimed at putting the customer’s needs at the centre of all activity. According to Pipe Center, many of its customers are now involved in vast MEICA (mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, control and automation) projects that demand a plethora of skills and product knowledge.

Phil Viner, category director for pipes, valves and fittings at Wolseley said: “With so many variations of valves on the market for customers to navigate through, we identified a need to start listing our products by project rather than product. We understand our customers’ businesses and their challenges and want to be responsive to customer needs, forging more of a partnership approach.”

There are more than 100 JET valves listed in the guide including Pipe Center’s latest commissioning valve.
