In the UK water conservation has been largely ignored since the summer of 1976 – until now.
The impact of erratic rainfall patterns has highlighted the wider impact of overuse of water resources.
Even in the UK the change in weather patterns due to global climate change have resulted in, mostly, short term supply issues. In addition to these ‘direct impacts’, the process of cleaning, processing, and heating water accounts for 6% of CO2 emissions in the UK.
Decorative casings and boxing products from UK Boxings have been used by housing associations and local authorities for well over 20 years to hide, heating system, boiler, and fire sprinkler pipework to help improve a project’s finish, reduce time on site and save money.
Manufactured from 9mm thick, UKTR compliant and moisture resistant MDF, our pipe boxings and boiler casings are easy to fit and are used in ongoing RMI projects to interior heating system and retro-fitted fire sprinkler pipework, as well as boiler pipes and valves.
