Aquilar are a distributor and manufacturer of leak detection equipment and solutions.

Founded in 1999, soon became the number one partner for the world leading TraceTek leak detection system. Formally invented and manufactured by the Raychem Corporation and then merged into one of the many products and services offered within the Thermal Controls business.

trumpetFinding that one manufacturer did not offer a solution for all applications, Aquilar embarked on a customer focus programme, talking to many specifying engineers and customers asking what other products were needed. From this, development moved forward and the AquiTron range was created. Even today, R&D continues, creating new products and solutions to solve customers’ challenges and to meet with new and changing standards within the building industry.

Aquilar pride themselves on the level of service provided to their clients. Offering step by step guidance in the design of the most effective solution for each project, and backed up with full design drawings, schematics, technical submittals and quotations. A team of dedicated professionals assist through each step of the design, supply and commissioning of the leak detection system and provides whatever assistance required to complete the project to the highest standard.

Whilst Aquilar do not install leak detection directly, they do have a number of highly trained partner installers around the country that work alongside to ensure that all systems are completed and maintained to the clients specifications.

Based in modern offices in Horsham town centre, Aquilar also benefits from ample warehouse space to keep good stocks, providing off the shelf systems, even for the largest of projects.

Aquilar have, over 10 years, designed and supplied leak detection systems into almost all markets available e.g. data centres, office buildings, banks, schools, hospitals, fuel storage facilities, laboratories. For more information on who uses TraceTek, click here.
