Rheem Stellar Stainless Steel – Rheem

Rheem Launches New Stainless Steel Range

Stellar® Stainless Steel – Available In Gas & Electric

22nd October 2013 Rheem Australia has bolstered its popular Stellar® suite of products with the launch of a new range of stainless steel water heaters.

The New Rheem Stellar Stainless Steel Is Available In Models Suitable For Either Electricity Or Gas.

“This is a logical extension of the established and popular Rheem Stellar brand – the introduction of superior stainless steel water heaters in both electric and gas versions,” says Gareth Jennings, Rheem’s general manager of marketing and corporate affairs. “There are a myriad of benefits to stainless steel water heaters, and we recognised the need to provide the trade and consumers with an option, depending on their individual requirements.”

The New Rheem Stellar Stainless Steel Water Heaters Are Designed With Performance, High Energy Efficiency, Features & Aesthetics Firmly In Mind. 

Backed by a 10-year warranty on the cylinder, Rheem’s stainless steel water heaters are lighter compared to vitreous enamel (the electric models up to 40% lighter than comparable Rheemglas® electric water heater models), making them easier to handle, transport, and install.

Sleek, Modern & Durable.

“As the electric models are significantly lighter, it’s great news for plumbers who often need to move these units up several flights of stairs in apartment blocks, or negotiate narrow side passageways of houses,” Jennings adds. “And compared to vitreous enamel, stainless steel cylinders are intrinsically more prone to resist corrosion.”
