"I am currently managing the installation of Steel press fit and Copper press fit by KE KELIT at 20 Customhouse Quay, Wellington.
There were a number of reasons for choosing these products. A major factor is price, and these products are very competitive.
As with all installations, speed is a must. These products KE KELIT supply offer that speed, we are currently installing full floor systems in less than half the time that previous system offered.
And one final decision maker for us was KE KELIT offered EN 1057 Copper, which for us means we can meet the nominal bore sizing on our drawings (provided by the mechanical consultant). If we were to use AS 1432 Copper then we have to increase our pipe by one size as it's smaller than NZ 3501 & En 1057 copper and doing this makes the project no longer viable.
To date we have been impressed with the service and support with these products and we will seriously consider again going forward on other projects."
