Providing powerful, mains-pressure performance, it incorporates high flow rate controls, ideal for multi bathroom homes where baths fill very quickly.
There are Indirect and Direct patterns for gas/oil and electricity with model sizes from 60 litres to 400 litres in each pattern with an additional eight options for solar energy.
Duplex Stainless Steel
The Stainless Lite uses the very latest high specification Duplex to resist all forms of corrosion including crevice and stress whilst its high mechanical strength gives it durability.
The very latest automated welding procedures along with full post weld treatments guarantee welds that are as strong as the parent metal. Stainless Lite is ressure tested in the factory to a full 12 bar which is four times the normal working pressure.
Stainless Lite uses a high heat transfer corrugated tube heat exchanger to give a 20% faster recovery than plain tube. It is also lighter and stronger than plain tube making the vessel the lightest and easiest to handle on site.
Gledhill - The Cylinder Specialist
The Gledhill name is synonymous with a family of water heating and storage products that lead the field in terms of innovation and quality. We are respected for our worldleading range of primary stores, but we have also produced unvented cylinders from the very beginning. Stainless Lite is an unvented mains pressure store in Duplex stainless steel that establishes new criteria for quality, performance and life.
storage vessels. The cylinders have been tested by NSF-WRc and WRAS, and found to comply with Building Regulations G3 and Water Regulations.
In performance, it complies with the requirements of BS EN 806-1 to 5 and meets the NHBC criteria for domestic properties.
Gledhill also operates a quality management system audited and accepted by the BSI in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001:2008.
The Stainless Lite cylinders are supplied with all the quality fittings needed, according to model, including;
- Immersion heater(s)
- 2 port zone valve (indirect)
- Wiring centre (indirect)
- Dual thermostat (indirect)
- Inlet control set Tundish
- Benchmark log book Installation manual
- Expansion vessel kit including flexible connection hose
- Lift up pressure and temperature relief valve (unvented)
- Control thermostat and drain valve
- 90 degree elbow on hot draw off
All Gledhill Stainless Lite cylinders are manufactured using the very latest HCFC free EnviroFoam insulation. This has an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of zero and an industry leading Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 0.7. Tests show that the 50mm of EnviroFoam insulation injected into the case and covering both domes achieves astonishingly low levels of heat loss, which ensures it is fully compliant with 2010 Part L requirements for both new build and replacement cylinders.
25 Year Guarantee
The 25 year guarantee underlines the usual Gledhill confidence in its own products. We regularly have copper cylinders returned to us that we made more than 40 years ago why should anyone expect less from stainless steel?
Buying a good reputable product is critical but it must be available when needed. Gledhill has strategically located manufacturing units so that delivery can be made to a merchant anywhere within hours.
Quality Standard - EN 12897
All Stainless Lite cylinders are manufactured in accordance with BS EN 12897 the specification for unvented water.
Gledhill Building Products manufacture 16 standard direct and indirect cylinders, ranging from 90 litres to 400 litres capacity.
The Stainless Lite direct model is supplied with two immersions for off-peak and on-peak use (except 90 litre model which only has an on-peak immersion). Therefore, the store of water in the cylinder can be heated utilising the off-peak electricity, making the unit extremely efficient. These cylinders are ultimately lightweight, easy to install answer for electric hot water options.
The immersion heater(s) must be connected to the supply through a double pole linked isolating switch with a minimum breaking capacity of 13A.
All models have a temperature and pressure relief valve factory set at 6 bar and 92-95°C.
The indirect range has a high efficiency corrugated tube coil which is connected to a conventional boiler to heat the cylinder of water. The coils corrugated design gives you much faster re-heat times than can be achieved with plain tube coils. All indirect models come with an on-peak immersion but only the 250, 300 and 400 litre models are supplied with an off-peak immersion.
All tappings are within a 90°segment to make installation easier.
