Mark Vitow | Top-Fix
Mark Vitow Ltd is gearing up to showcase its Top-Fix waste installation solution at InstallerSHOW. The company says Top-Fix represents a paradigm shift in shower, bath, kitchen, and basin waste fitting with its unique top-down installation approach. The two-piece system drops into the waste hole from above, eliminating the complexities of awkward angles and the need to simultaneously hold parts in place from below. Once in position, the two main components are secured using a 14mm bolt, creating a robust watertight seal, without the need for silicone. 

The recent launch of the shower and kitchen strainer wastes received significant interest, paving the way for the exclusive unveiling of basin and bath wastes at InstallerSHOW. Mark Vitow supplies Top-Fix to Plumbing and Heating Merchants nationwide.  

Visit Team Vitow and ‘I Love Plumbing’ Andy Cam at Stand 5D16.

Darran Smith, Technical Director at Alpha, said: “The Installer Show is a key date in our calendars, and we’re delighted to be bringing our show van to the 2024 exhibition, to demonstrate the wide breadth of products and support we have on offer. We’re particularly eager to share more insights and information on our E-Tec Hybrid and Hydro products, as we seek to support installers in embracing a low-carbon future, and discussing the free training we have on offer to upskill in this area.” 

OFTEC will be located at Hall 5 Stand A12. The organisation is encouraging visitors to come to find out the latest about HVO and its vision for a technology inclusive approach to decarbonisation, which recognises the diverse nature of the UK’s building stock and the need for multiple heating solutions to achieve net zero. 

The organisation will also be promoting its heat pump training and assessments, which have been developed to meet the needs of heat pump installers and dovetail with MCS requirements. The cross-industry working group behind the courses included Grant UK, Panasonic, Vaillant, Nationwide Training, Cert-Ain Certification and ERS Certification as the representatives of seven UK based accredited certification bodies.
