Grant launches latest ThermaWave range

Grant DHW Thermal Store 2014 HR RGBCombining renewable technologies with traditional heating systems in one thermal store is now even easier than ever thanks to the launch of the new Grant ThermaWave, which allows multiple heat sources to be connected, all with a 3kW immersion heater back-up.

The Grant ThermaWave is available in three variations: open-vented with solar coil, open-vented with solar and Domestic Hot Water (DHW) coils and sealed system with solar and DHW coils.

ThermaWave DHW stores are extremely installer friendly as they have been designed for situations where there is a greater demand for domestic hot water, yet there is no need to link the store to an additional cylinder, resulting in a more cost effective and compact installation. The units also feature compression fittings, cutting installation time and hassle for plumbing and heating engineers.

The stores range in size from 250 to 500 litres and are highly efficient due to the 40mm injected polyurethane foam insulation which ensures an exceptionally low standing heat loss.

“Thanks to ThermaWave, a homeowner can have a gas or oil fired boiler connected to a solid fuel appliance and also a renewable heat source 
such as a solar, thermal or a heat pump. Underfloor heating system manifolds as well as radiator circuits can also be directly connected to the store,” explains Anna Wakefield, Marketing Manager.
