Grant TechBox has been updated

The TechBox app, which stores Grant’s current and historical product manuals, has been updated and now includes the technical information for Grant’s latest products, including the VortexBlue oil boiler and Aerona³ air source heat pumps.

Grant TechBox App

The easy-to-navigate homescreen of the Grant TechBox app

Launched in 2015, the Grant TechBox is exactly what its name suggests – an electronic source which stores all the Grant product technical manuals as downloads. Whether you need the installation manual for a product no longer manufactured, such as the Multipass boiler, or the technical information on a Grant Spira biomass boiler, the TechBox app is there to support engineers out in the field.

This latest update has added new downloads to the Grant TechBox. The installation instructions for the Grant VortexBlue oil fired boiler range are now available as is the manual for the Aerona³ inverter driven air source heat pump. Additional downloads for Grant’s A-rated heat pump cylinder and new VortexAir oil boiler/heat pump hybrid are also live on the TechBox now.

Some of the Grant TechBox features include:

  • Suitable for Android and iPhone devices
  • Free to download
  • No need for an internet or WiFi connection – the TechBox allows users to download and access content anywhere and anytime
  • A fully comprehensive library of current and historic manuals
  • Installation manuals and user instructions for all technologies: oil, biomass, heat pump, solar, cylinders and controls
  • There is a link that will take you straight to the Grant UK Spares website – simply click the shopping basket at the top of the homepage screen
  • No more chunky folders or coffee-stained sheets of paper – everything you need to know will be available at the tap of a screen!

If you have already downloaded the Grant TechBox, your Apple or Android device will either automatically update your app to latest version or your device will prompt you to update the app in your phone’s App Settings.

Once you have downloaded the app, you will be taken through to the homepage. Simply click on the relevant product range, then follow the sub-menus selecting the appropriate model range and current or archived material, choose the document that you require and then open the PDF file.
