RWC launches a new Reliance Valves website to further unite their family of brands and enhance user experience

RWC, the world’s largest water control valves and push-fit plumbing and heating manufacturer, launched the second of a collection of new EMEA websites on June 16th 2022 to further unite their family of brands with a consistent and bold visual identity. Reflecting the group’s corporate branding, while significantly enhancing user experience, the second website to be launched will be home to RWC’s Reliance Valves brand. Aimed at plumbing and heating contractors, specifiers and distributors, as well as plumbing and heating OEM engineers, the new design of the Reliance Valves website enables customers to explore our market leading solutions at the push of a button.

Born out of the desire to challenge convention and continuously pioneer, RWC’s family of brands help make lives easier, safer, and more efficient for a wide range of customers within the modern built environment. And with this ethos in mind, the company’s new and improved websites ecosystem is aimed at offering a much friendlier visual and functional experience.

“Following on from the success of the new John Guest website launch, we are excited to unite our family of brands further by introducing the new and improved Reliance Valves website”, said Marketing Director John Kerr.

“Making it easier to find products and get quick access to detailed technical information, the redesign offers a much clearer navigation, while the website’s enhanced responsiveness makes it particularly user-friendly to view on a mobile device. And just like our products, this launch enables us to continue our company’s ethos of making lives easier and more efficient across our online presence.”

Customers looking to specify or install Reliance Valves, or incorporate our technology within their own OEM solutions, will find the enhanced search capabilities of the new website helpful, while the improved resources centre will give access to useful content, such as detailed product listings, technical data sheets, BIM objects, videos, product guides and more. And a blog with useful industry insights, installation best practice and useful tips will provide customers with the resources they need to stay up to speed with the market, as well as the latest product developments and innovative solutions to plumbing and heating challenges.

With a live chat function available, answers to technical questions or advice will be a click away, making sure your queries are dealt with efficiently – further helping you handle tight project deadlines. And a list of local sales contacts makes it even easier for installers, specifiers and merchants to find or specify the solution they are looking for.

Following the launches of the John Guest and Reliance Valves websites, RWC’s SharkBite brass push-fit plumbing and heating range will also have a new digital home later in the year, further uniting the online identity of the RWC family of brands.

Introducing the first Reliance Valves’ push-fit range with JG Speedfit technology

RWC has launched its first ever Reliance Valves range that features push-fit connections from JG Speedfit. This new range perfectly blends the company’s world-leading technologies to transform the speed and simplicity of installations, as no tools are required.

The valves that are now available with push-fit connections include the Easifit Thermostatic Mixing Valve (TMV) – 15mm, the 312 Compact Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) – 15mm and 22mm, the Nickel-Plated Ball Valve – 15mm and 22mm, and the Automatic Air Vent – 15mm.

Mike Riseley, UK Sales Director at RWC comments: “We’re bringing our family of brands closer together by combing two of our world-leading technologies, and this unique range brings countless benefits for installers.

“Our aim is to provide control valves for the modern built environment where time is money and jobs need to be completed efficiently. And this new range of push-fit valves has been developed to deliver just that in both domestic and light commercial applications. Alongside this, these valves make repair and maintenance works much faster too, as they can be demounted and reinstalled without tools. Also reducing system downtime.”

The Easifit TMV from this range precisely blends hot and cold water to a safe and comfortable temperature, to protect users from scalding. This valve is complaint with both TMV2 and TMV3 schemes and has received much love from installers due to its small size, that simplifies installations in tight spaces, such as underneath baths.

Also benefitting from JG Speedfit technology is the 312 Compact PRV, that safely regulates the water pressure in a building. This valve is already one of the most robust and popular products of its type, and with push-fit connections and a one-piece cartridge design, the valve is even easier to install and service.

The reliable push-fit Nickel Plated Ball Valve safely and easily shuts off hot and cold water from appliances and fixtures. And the high-quality Air Vent with push-fit connections improves the performance of sealed heating systems by automatically bleeding air from the system.

All the new valves available with push-fit technology are still available in their existing compression and union connections.
