How The Motorised TRV Provides Individual Room Temperature Control
We discuss how we’re taking underfloor heating to the next stage with thermostatic controls, providing the ability to offer individual room temperature control for both underfloor heating and radiator heating through the Motorised TRV.
We’re happy to be able to offer our clients an underfloor heating system downstairs and a radiator heating system upstairs — a very common situation these days. What’s not so common is having individual room temperature control with a radiator system. The Motorised TRV takes thermostatic controls to the next level by providing an extra level of regulation.
The product connects directly to the radiator on the valve and can be linked with the thermostat directly. With the ability to connect up to six TRVs to a single thermostat, complete individual room temperature control is easily achievable. Our thermostatic controls provide for a comfortable living experience.
By giving you complete temperature control, your home will be better regulated both upstairs and downstairs.
Our Range Of Plumbing Manifolds – Multipipe
In this video, Martin from Multipipe shows you our range of plumbing manifolds available, including sanitary manifolds, radiation and the new technology of smart manifolds. We have a plumbing manifold system for whatever your needs may be. Whether you need hot or cold water, we have got you covered.
The options we have available will suit both radiator and underfloor heating systems. In fact, our new plumbing manifold system is even ideal for multiple floor constructions.
Key Features of Our Plumbing Manifolds:
0:42 – The sanitary manifold can be used for hot and cold supply. One of the benefits is that it has jointless plumbing. It also fits onto the wall easily with a sliding rail.
1:12 – Another of our popular plumbing manifolds is the radiator manifold. These are available from two to twelve ports.
1:25 – Then there’s the smart manifold. This combines radiator manifolds and underfloor heating all in one. In this model, you can set the water to leave the plumbing manifold system at different temperatures.
Temporary Pipe End Cap For Testing MLCP – Multipipe
In this video, Martin from Multipipe shows you how to temporarily terminate the end of the pipe when fixing MLCP using press end caps and our innovative demountable pipe end cap.
Before testing pipes, there are two recommended methods for terminating the end. The first method, however, uses a permanent, non-demountable fitting that will have to be cut off when removed. With the demountable end cap that we’ve developed, removal is simple; all you need is a collet remover and the pipe end cap will slide off.
How to Temporarily Stop Ends for Testing Pipes:
0:15 – You can use a press end cap, but this is a non-demountable fitting. You’ll have to cut the end section off if you want to reuse it.
0:25 – How to use the demountable end cap. Once you cut and bevel the pipe, you simply push the end cap onto the pipe.
0:42 – How to use a collet remover to take the end cap off after testing pipes.
Multilayer Modular 90 And 110 Pressing System – Multipipe
Learn about Multipipe’s Modular 90 and 110 Pressing System, along with how to distribute multilayer composite pipe using the press adaptor. One of the great things about this system is that it makes it easy to connect different size pipes to the main body.
Press adaptors are what allow you to do this. Once the press adaptors have been prepared, you can connect them to multilayer composite pipe using a large pressing tool. With this pressing system, a wide range of pipe sizes can be accommodated.
An O-ring at the top of the fitting ensures a tight seal, while a locking ring keeps everything fastened securely together. Whether it’s a smaller size pipe, a female adaptor, or an end cap, this system makes attaching any kind of multilayer composite pipe both simple and secure. This is truly a unique pressing system that can accommodate a wide variety of pipe sizes.

Connecting Copper Pipes To MLC Pipes
In this video, Martin from Multipipe shows you how to transfer from Multipipe MLC pipe to traditional Copper materials like 15mm-22mm using Multipipe’s available pipe adapter options. When connecting copper pipes to MLC pipes, there are generally two ways of doing it: with a press copper fitting or a compression fitting.
By the end of this video, you’ll know how to go about connecting copper pipes using either type of pipe adapter.
Guide for Connecting Copper Pipes with a Pipe Adapter:
0:34 – After cutting and beveling the MLC pipe, attach a press-to-copper tail adapter.
0:58 – Connect the copper pipe to the copper stub and secure it using a press copper fitting or a compression fitting.
1:14 – Never use a blowlamp because it could damage the O-rings or the pipe itself.
1:32 – A compression fitting can be secured simply by tightening the nuts.
How To Install Push Fittings Onto Our Multilayer Pipe – Multipipe
In this video, Martin from Multipipe discusses our range of push fittings, which are ideal for spaces with restricted access or when pressing tools are unavailable. He also explains how to install push-fit connections onto our multilayer pipe.
These push fittings are extremely easy to use and convenient; however, keep in mind that they are non-demountable. Fortunately, the see-through material makes it easy to spot any errors.
These products are versatile and create secure connections that you can depend on.
Tips for Making Push-Fit Connections:
0:14 – The circumstances in which you may want to use push fittings.
0:24 – How to prepare the pipe.
0:33 – How to insert the pipe into the fitting.
0:48 – You can always check your push-fit connections by making sure the pipe is in as far as it can go.
What You Can Do With Our Flexible Pipe Joints And Fittings
In this video, Martin from Multipipe discusses the flexibility of our MLCP range and the benefits of having flexible pipe joints and fittings.
A flexible pipe fitting allows you to have mobility while still retaining the complete safety and security of the joint. This means that after doing a press, not only will it be non-demountable, it will also be movable. With flexible pipe joints, you can bend the pipe to fit the space necessary to do a press.
Afterwards, you can easily bend the pipe back to its chosen position or even rotate it. A flexible pipe fitting gives you many options when installing your MLC pipe. This means that installations can be done even in difficult areas.
If you would like to learn more about our flexible pipe joints, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
MLC Pipe Shaping and Bending – Multipipe
In this video, Martin from Multipipe shows how to bend pipe accurately into a certain shape or pattern using hands or various pipe benders and cutters. When it comes to MLC pipe shaping, there are many options available to you.
How to Bend Pipe Accurately Using Different Methods:
0:20 – With smaller sizes, pipe shaping and manipulation can be done using your thumb and fingers.
0:30 – Internal springs will slide down the internal sides of the pipe. As you bend the pipe with your hands, the internal spring will support the MLC pipe from the inside.
0:44 – External springs can be used for pipe shaping that is farther away.
0:58 – An alternative is to use a ratchet. To do so, slide the pipe into the ratchet system and increase the ratchet until you achieve your pre-set radius bend. This device takes the guesswork out of learning how to bend pipe accurately.
Cutting Pipe Pressing And Calibrating How To Use Our Multilayer Pipe And Fittings
In this video, Martin demonstrates cutting pipe, pressing, and bevelling with Multipipe’s Multilayer Pipe and Fittings. With MLC piping available in a range of sizes, from 12mm right up to 110mm, the procedure for cutting and beveling is very similar across the range. We have a range of cutters, from simple bladed cutters to comprehensive wheel cutters for larger diameter pipework.
Here are the instructions for cutting pipe and pressing with Multipipe’s Multilayer Pipe and Fittings:
0:44 – Start by cutting your pipe at a 90-degree angle using your pipe cutter.
1:24 – Next, use the Multipipe beveling tool to shave a 45-degree angle in the inner core.
2:46 – Then, use a pressing tool to secure the pipe fitting. When done properly, you should see white in all three windows of the fitting.
3:08 – You should then see pressing marks on the pipe fitting that show the installer that the press has been successfully made.
Follow this basic process to make cutting pipe, pressing and beveling easy.
