TracPipe when you need it

Published:  13 December, 2011

BANBURY: TracPipe is rapidly expanding its network of UK stockists in response to installer demand for same-day delivery of this innovative flexible gas pipe.

TracPipe is a stainless steel semi-rigid gas pipe that’s quickly becoming the recognized alternative to traditional rigid copper or steel pipework installed between the meter and an appliance. Manufacturer Omegaflex says that TracPipe typically saves up to 75% of the time normally required for a steel or copper pipe installation.

“As more and more installers experience the time-saving benefits of TracPipe, we need to ensure that they can readily access what they need, when they need it,” said TracPipe sales and marketing director Tony Dark.

“TracPipe has been available for next-day delivery through virtually all of the UK’s leading distributors when ordered by 1pm, but in 2011, we made the decision to expand our network of distributors who can give installers exceptional service by offering our product as a stocked item– thereby offering same-day service of our product.”

Current distributors offering same-day service of TracPipe include Collister & Glover, TG Lynes, Warrens, Harris & Bailey, Michael Pavis, Frasier & Ellis and Smith Brothers.

The latest stockist to add TracPipe to its wide range of domestic heating, plumbing and bathroom products is Heating Plumbing Supplies Limited (HPS).

With 26 branches across the South of England, HPS aims to have TracPipe in-stock in as many branches as possible within the next few months – so installers can simply drop by and pick-up what they need.

“We’re delighted to add TracPipe to our range,” said HPS sales and marketing director Peter Wilson. “This is a truly unique product that offers a valuable labour-saving option. It’s a new product opportunity for HPS, we don’t carry anything else like it.”
