Anvil(r) International Launches Cost-Saving, Single-Solution HVAC Hook-up Kits.
Streamlined, Labor-Saving HVAC Connection Solution for Contractors.

Anvil International, the most complete manufacturer of domestic and globally sourced products for piping systems, announced a new offering of an innovative package system for HVAC hook-ups. Gruvlok® KNX series Hydronic Hook-Up Kits integrate the typical 54 components required to connect piping to hydronic heating or chiller system equipment into one pre-engineered, pre-assembled and pre-tested kit of only four components — saving up to 80% on labor compared to traditional connection methods.Anvil(r) International Launches Cost-Saving, Single-Solution HVAC Hook-up Kits.

"The Gruvlok KNX series Hydronic Hook-Up Kit is a single-source solution for more efficient, higher-quality installations," said Brandon Gunnell, director of marketing for Anvil International. "We are committed to delivering meaningful cost savings for contractors and to helping our distributors offer comprehensive product solutions to their customers."

Gruvlok KNX series Hydronic Hook-Up Kits offer contractors the ability to use one job-specific kit instead of purchasing various parts from different suppliers, resulting in less labor and less risk of using the wrong product on the job. These kits ensure the correct components are installed at the correct location in the system. On average, each kit saves 3.5 hours of labor, which equates to approximately $200 in cost savings per kit. The kits provide contactors with better options for controlling the cost on the job and virtually eliminate engineering / compatibility verification effort and issues.

The kits are available in connection sizes from ½" to 2" and are configured to the system designer's specifications, streamlining the ordering process for contractors. Each kit is tested, bagged, tagged, boxed and labeled at the Anvil International facility prior to shipment. Anvil is an industry leader in "bag and tag" delivery services, which allow for better management of labor and equipment on job sites.

Gruvlok KNX series Hydronic Hook-Up Kits can integrate into a wide variety of projects, including welded systems. "The kits take the guesswork out of HVAC connection systems for contractors and offer speedy installation and superior project efficiency for faster project completion," said Gunnell.
