Press Release - September 2013

Elson launches cost-competitive hot water solutions for light commercial customers.

Elson has launched a new range of cost-competitive water heaters, designed specifically for the light commercial market.

Billed as the 'ultimate range of value-for-money water heaters', the commercial offering is competitively priced, yet maintains the build quality and impressive performance that customers expect from the Elson name.

Available to purchase over the counter in both electrical wholesalers and plumbers' merchants, the new Elson range will be launched in two phases. From October 2013, Elson's new commercial EHW3 hand wash unit, its EOS7 over sink vented water heater and its EBW25 boiling water heater will be introduced to the market. Later in the year, two under sink unvented water heaters will also be added to this commercial product range.

The EHW3 hand wash unit is a compact 3kW water heater, ideal for applications where there is a need for hand wash facilities, but insufficient space or demand for a full hot water system. The EHW3 can provide washing facilities for applications such as staff or customer toilets in commercial premises, or consultation rooms at GP or dental practices where hand hygiene is particularly important. Features of the EHW3 include a power on indicator, stainless steel swivel spout and a pre-set safety cut-out and pressure to make the unit safer in operation.

For light commercial applications where there is a larger demand for hand washing facilities and instant hot water, Elson offers the EOS7 - a seven litre vented water heater, which boasts fast recovery times from cold and compact dimensions to ensure ease of installation and flexible siting. IPX4 rated, the EOS7 has a 3kW rating at 240V.

Where hot water for beverages is required, Elson's EBW25 is ideal for offices, canteens, workshops or even waiting rooms. The 2.5 litre capacity water heater has a 2.5kW rating at 240V, and can save both time and energy that would normally be wasted from repeatedly boiling a kettle for hot drinks.

Ian Lock, general manager at Elson general said: "This is our first range designed with the light commercial user in mind. Drawing on our wealth of experience and industry expertise gained in the domestic market, we have developed our commercial offering using the same principles of reliable technology, quality build and competitive pricing. We will be looking to build on the success of the EHW3, EOS7 and EBW25 launches with two further products to be introduced to the market later in the year, establishing Elson as one to watch in the light commercial water heating arena.

Elson's EHW3, EOS7 and EBW25 models are covered by a two-year warranty with on-site service support. Warranty call-outs will be covered by heateam and spares can be requested through Interpart. Full fitting instruction guides are provided with each product to make installation straightforward, with diagrams and spare part codes for stress-free maintenance and repairs.
