The JLS range of Valves Our needle valves are based on the world famous Ermeto/Alenco valves to which JLS valves acquired the design rights in 1990. We can provide replacement and specified valves for this range back to the 1950's, with over 12,000 drawings in our database. In addition to the valves detailed on our site we also offer a wide range of additional specialist valves and will engineer valves to meet specific applications and configurations. The most popular valve types, many of which are normally available ex-stock, or with short lead-times, are shown below.
