New R4.0 GelBlack and TwinGel Line Sets
As you know, the new mechanical code requires R4.0 insulation on all split system line sets. In response to this change we have decided to stock the new GelBlack line sets. In addition to meeting the new R4.0 code requirement these line sets feature a new tear resistant GelBlack insulation that is UV resistant making it easier to install. They come packaged in bags which take up less space and less waste on the job site. The ends are a flat crimp ensuring the line set is clean inside every time. The GelBlack comes in 25′, 35’, & 50’ lengths.
We are also stocking the new (50’ only) TwinGel white minisplit R4.0 line sets. The TwinGel insulation is fused together making minisplit installation much easier. It is also tear and UV resistant.

Welcome South Bend and Elkhart Branches!
Effective January 1, 2017 the existing South Bend and Elkhart, IN Johnstone branches joined the Muskegon group. This brought the group total to 8 stores in Western Michigan and Northern Indiana. Former South Bend owner Andy Peck will continue to work with the stores in 2017 to ensure a smooth transition but will then change his focus onto other future endeavors. You can expect to see the same team members you have come to know as well as their high level of customer service. The entire Muskegon team welcomes South Bend and Elkhart employees to our team!
In addition to all that Johnstone Supply offers, the South Bend group brings to Muskegon added knowledge, product and expertise in refrigeration and commercial products. Muskegon in turn brings updated computer technology, rf bar-coding and several added product lines to South Bend. Customers can also expect to see enhanced deliveries and services once the transition is complete.
Let us know if you have any questions.
