Gledhill Unvented Cylinders

About the Brand

 
In 1926, two brothers named Norman and Joe Gledhill started a business producing domestic copper cylinders in Blackpool. The business grew and despite a hiatus during World War 2, Gledhill was a successful family run enterprise by the 1950s with Norman’s wife and sons, Keith and Houghton, also working for the company.

Norman and his wife retired in the 1960s and, while Keith and Houghton continued to work for the new owners for a time, in 1972 they started their own cylinder making business under the Gledhill name. In 2015 the brand was acquired by an international heating manufacturer, Groupe Atlantic.

Gledhill StainlessLite Unvented Cylinders

Gledhill’s StainlessLite range of unvented cylinders is one of the widest you’ll come across. Within the range they have both indirect and direct cylinders for gas and oil boilers and cylinders which are compatible with solar thermal, heat pumps or even both. Gledhill have also produce horizontal and slimline options to suit smaller installations and a simpler, ‘budget friendly’ option called the StainlessLite ES. Capacities range from 60 to 400 litres, so Gledhill really have covered all the bases.

The cylinders are made from Duplex stainless steel to resist corrosion and include 50mm of HCFC free foam insulation for maximum energy efficiency. Despite the high quality of the construction Gledhill have managed to produce the lightest cylinder on the market which can aid in a simpler, quicker and possibly cheaper installation.

Gledhill also offer a range of vented cylinders including the Torrent Stainless OV, the Torrent Stainless OV SOL, the Torrent Stainless SP SOL, the Envirofoam Copper, the Envirofoam Stainless and the Pulsacoil Eco Stainless.
