        Copper Tube prefabrication specialists.

Specializing in making custom copper tube assemblies, everything from
micro-bore to 6" diameter pipe sizes. We offer a made to order service for: Low loss headers, Sedimentation vessels, mains water, heating and solar manifolds.

Also, where there are difficult sections of pipework: complex boiler room layouts with multiple Tees, elbows on large bore pipe etc, we can help by making up these sections and having them delivered on site the day you specify.

Many of the large installers use us on a day to day basis to produce sections of pipework that they feel are to difficult or uneconomic to put together on site, either collecting or having them delivered as needed. This provides them with sections of pipework that are neat, accurate and fully pressure tested. Reducing leaks and improving the look of the installation.

Because of the care and attention taken in producing clear drawings for the customer we're sure before we start manufacture that we know exactly what is required. All drawings are checked and passed by the customer before any work commences. We also realize that you can't afford to wait weeks and weeks to for a component, so from your sketch we should be able to send back a drawing and price the same day.

When ordered a unit usually takes 3-5 days to manufacture and is then sent out on an overnight carrier. We also offer an "AM" service which means units will arrive before 12:00 next day.
All of the units are made from BS standard components and are fully pressure tested. We also supply all wall fixings and screws etc. To make sure they arrive undamaged, units are packed in hand made wooden crates and shipped immediately.
