Hundreds of valves are being supplied by Crane for system balancing and isolation in what will be Britainís tallest residential building.

Britainís tallest residential building, the 47-storey Beetham Tower in Manchester, has its hydronic balancing and isolation requirements served by Crane Valves.

At 150 m high, this glass-clad tower will be 30 m higher than the Barbican in central London. A futuristic glass-blade feature increases the overall height to 171 m.

Crane Fluid Systems is supplying many hundreds of balancing and isolation valves for the plant rooms and chilled-water and heating systems.

The tower will comprise a 285-bed Hilton Hotel taking up 23 floors. There will also be 219 apartments, including 16 penthouses, with views across Greater Manchester and as far away as Snowdonia, Blackpool and Liverpool.
