OUR REGULAR ROUND-UP OF WHAT'S HAPPENING OUT THERE

Children In Need Thank you a total of £215.67 was raised for Children in Need.

Worcester was inundated by gangster rappers all taking part to raise funds for Children In Need. The theme of Honey G from the X factor went down well, ensue colourful outfits and some serious posing! There could only be one winner from the three chosen – of which Sasha Williams took the crown! Well done Sasha

Worcester van gets stitched up 40,000 metres of red, blue and white wool were used to turn a white van into giant woolly warmer van which made a splash in London before heading across the country.

It took 10 months, 5 knitters, 3 stitchers and 40,000 metres of red, blue and white wool to transform a plain white van into a giant woolly warmer - which even included fluffy hub caps and wing-mirror covers. The extra-large, woolly van-jumper was designed by Bewdley artist, Betti Moretti, to help bring a little cheer as the darker and colder mornings set in. It took the team of 8 over 1,000 hours to knit, sew and crochet using 500 balls of wool. Dressing the van ready for its road-trip took a further 5 people, 300 metres of adhesive tape and an additional 17 hours over two days. After touring the capital dishing out hand-warmers, hot drinks, bacon sandwiches and porridge to chilly commuters, the knitted-out van started its journey to spread its warmth around the country. We commissioned the striking, woolly ‘van-over’ as part of our ‘Rely On’ campaign. Being on the road allowed us to encourage people to get warm - inside and out - by finding out who the nation depends on most to warm both their homes and their hearts. The reactions we got from people were really heart-warming and put a smile on their faces. Creating the oversized knit for the van was a huge amount of fun, and it was great to surprise and delight people with such an eyecatching attraction!

Award 2016

We were proud sponsors again this year of Showroom of the year 2016. As always it was a great event and we are always pleased to take part and support our Merchants. Congratulations to Graham Tinley, the Kitchen and Bathroom Showrooms Manager for LBS Builders Merchants who was on hand to collect the Showroom of the Year award from Jonathan Eyre and Dara O'Briain at the Builders Merchant News Awards.

At Grundfos, they have been providing an increasingly sophisticated audience with various on- and off-line product selection support tools since 1984. These tools have evolved by speaking to customers and looking at best-in-class options from multiple disciplines. The latest on this evolutionary ladder is the Grundfos Product Center. Today this Product Center allows you to begin your search journey from a number of starting points. For example, you can choose to search by family, pump design or application area. Alternatively, you may want to start your search by viewing the replacement options for an older Grundfos or a competitor model. Another way to start your search is by application and to find your choice based on head, flow and application type. Certain pump choices need to be dictated by the liquid type to be pumped, so this is yet another point you can start from. So whether you need to select a pump by size, application, replacement or liquid, making the Grundfos Product Center a favourite will be central to helping you to make the right choice.

BEST BUYS We love giving our social media community some unique ways to save. We have our weekly Freaky Friday offer but during October and November we didn’t think that was enough! We therefore launched our Best Buys which gave our customers the chance to get cashback on some of the biggest brands around.

Bathroom Solutions The last few months have seen us launch a number of brand new brochures and magazines to our social media audience. We tried something a little different with our Bathroom Solutions Collection in that we gave our social media community a unique view into each of the key sections that makes up the Collection.

With this year’s Best Buys you could earn cashback on massive brands such as Worcester Bosch, Baxi, Stelrad, Fernox, Adey, Grundfos, our exclusive Bathroom Solutions range, Triton, Heatrea and many more. The mechanism to save was simple, get yourself registered on our website and you will be able to begin enjoying the benefits almost immediately! Make sure you don’t miss out on the next Best Buys campaign by following us on Facebook and Twitter!

We created a blog for each of the key sections across a 2 week period and allowed our community to digest bite size chunks of our brand new collection. We could also go into more detail than we normally would with social media posts and showcase more of the most important sections of the brochure. This series of blogs featured posts on Baths, Enclosures, Furniture, Ceramics and Brassware and these are still available on our blogsite now! Head over to our Facebook and Twitter pages to find out more.

Honeywell evohome wins prestigious industry award for energy efficiency

Zircon – Light, durable, cylinders from Elson

Honeywell was named winner of the Smart Product of the Year category with its evohome heating control, for its ease of installation and use, as well as its ability to deliver energy efficiency. The evohome was one of the first fully connected and zoned heating systems on the market which allowed consumers to have more control over their home's heating and energy consumption, by enabling the heating control of up to 12 zones. evohome can be installed without disrupting existing pipework, fixtures, fittings, and décor, which was recognised by the judges. Similarly, the simplicity of evohome’s touchscreen control and the remote access via smartphone or tablet, increases energy efficiency and maximises comfort. “evohome is one of our flagship products, so for it to be recognised as an example of best practice is a tremendous honor for us," said Andy Mansfield, marketing communications manager at Honeywell, "Honeywell prides itself on listening to the market and providing both installers and homeowners with sophisticated heating controls, which have ease of use at their core. We always look to increase energy efficiency while providing simple comfort control for today’s homeowners. It’s great to see that the industry has highlighted evohome for doing just this.” For more information on Honeywell’s evohome, please visit honeywelluk.com/getconnected.

The Zircon cylinder range is constructed from strong lightweight Duplex stainless steel to allow ease of handling on site, whilst offering exceptional corrosion resistance particularly in aggressive water areas, compared with some forms of stainless steel and glasslined steel. With no sacrificial anode to replace, regular maintenance is kept to a minimum. Foam insulation measuring 50mm (CFC/HCDC-freeODP zero) is available on all models to give improved insulation standards. Our cylinders are finished in modern and robust white plastic-coated corrosionproofed steel, cased with grey high impact thermoplastic top and bottom mouldings. Indirect models are designed to offer high output coil-in-coil heat exchanger rating 12.5 to 19kW allowing high efficient transfer of energy whilst its position in the base of the cylinder maximises the amount of hot water heated, and the cold water controls design delivers good flow rate performance. The Zircon cylinder range gives mains pressure hot water for a balanced supply to showers and mixers - without the need for a shower pump. Designed with the installer in mind - all plumbing and electrical connections are located easily to give maximum access. Plumbing connections are 22mm compression. Capacities range from 120 to 300 litres on the standard models and 190 to 300 litres on the solar models. With no cold feed cistern required - the cylinder can be installed in an airing cupboard, loft, cellar, utility room or even in a garage. Backed by a 25 year guarantee with on-site service support.

OLI SMITH bcg Commercial Team

Q How long have you worked for bcg and

Q What is the one thing that bcg customers

what did you do before?

could do to help you to help them better?

I’ve worked in the Commercial Team at bcg for 18 months now, that time has gone so quickly as it only feels like yesterday I was first walking through the door. I spent seven years at Vax in various roles before joining bcg; when I left I was working in project management.

Q The best thing about bcg (so far)?

I’m sure most people answer this the same way, but it is definitely the people. There’s a real sense of community at bcg that I haven’t experienced elsewhere; we have a strong leadership team and that really helps people pull in the same direction. Everyone wants to do well and wants to see bcg succeed and the people really do make the company what it is. Second to that is probably the openness to change and agility which is very refreshing; if something isn’t working as well as it could Darran, Allan and Jonathan are open to new ideas, so bcg really is a reflection of everyone that works for it, rather than of one person’s vision.

 We usually aren’t the first port of call for customers so this is a tricky one but I’d have to say to keep feeding back to us, where we’re getting things right and where improvements can be made. Our focus in the Commercial Team is about constant improvement so we are always open to new ideas. The more feedback we get the better our service to you will be!

Q What do you like doing in your spare time...and state a fact that people are unlikely to know about you?  I enjoy writing a lot, I used to cover a lot of boxing and MMA for various international websites and I’d dip in and out of football journalism too, but being a West Ham fan, this became far too depressing to continue long term! Aside from that I play the bass and although I’m not in a band at the moment I have previously gigged in front of crowds as large as three, maybe even four people.

SOCIAL MEDIA 2016 REVIEW 2016 was a milestone year for the bcg social channels as we reached 2,000 followers on Twitter and started to showcase our customers on our Facebook page. Throughout 2016 we have communicated varied and interesting content to our audience across both Facebook and Twitter. The overall aim of all of our content on social media is to be USEFUL to our audience and to add value to both their professional and personal social media experience. We have a number of key themes that we keep coming back to throughout the year as these consistently work well with our audience and we want to create social media pages that our audience can rely on and keep coming back to.

FREAKY FRIDAY

SPOTLIGHT

Our Freaky Friday deal is a weekly chance for our customers to save on some of our most popular products. We shared 37 one day only deals throughout 2016. These varied from towel rails to clothing and from showers to sealant!

One of the amazing things about social media and the online world is that it gives us a direct link to our customers and allows us to learn more and more about what they want and need. During 2016, we created a way in which we could give our customers a helping hand over social media by sharing the page on both our platforms and also creating a blog about the social media programme.

We even created 2 special Freaky Friday deals during 2016. During October and November we aligned ourselves with some of the biggest cultural events of the year. At the end of October we shared our Halloween Freaky Friday where our customers could save on our Chrome ladder rail. During November, we created our version of a Black Friday sale in which we gave our customer one day only to save on Mira Showers as well Fernox Powerflux.

We have seen some amazing results from our customers who have really embraced social media and are creating engaging and interesting content for their audience. If you would like to be featuring during the 2017 bcg Spotlight, please get in touch with us over Facebook or Twitter.

Stay tuned on Thursday evenings for a preview of the next Freaky Friday Deal!

TWO NEW PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTATS FROM HONEYWELL, WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOUR CUSTOMER? Honeywell, the UK’s leading manufacturer of heating controls, has broadened its portfolio of controls with the arrival of the Lyric T6 Smart Programmable Thermostat and the Honeywell T4 modern programmable thermostat.

THE HONEYWELL LYRIC T6: PROVIDES COMFORT WHEN YOU'RE HOME, SAVINGS WHEN YOU ARE AWAY AND CONNECTIVITY HOW YOU WANT IT.

T6

The Lyric T6 programmable thermostat has been designed with installers and homeowners in mind, providing installers with an easy-to-install, flexible, energy efficient heating control that features all the best elements of modern technology. The Lyric T6 thermostat is also connected, giving homeowners the flexibility to control their heating from wherever they are, through a dedicated Lyric app. Designed to feature all the best and intelligent elements of todays’ modern home products, the thermostat can be managed remotely via tablet or smartphone; has integrated Wi-Fi-connectivity; uses universal icons and a modern touchscreen display; and offers smart energy saving features. The Lyric T6 also includes location-based temperature control (geo-fencing) to sense when the home owner is leaving or returning to the property and adjust the heating accordingly. It’s also easier and faster to install than previous programmable thermostat models, with the addition of a flip-up wiring bar, clearly labelled terminals and strain relief meaning wiring has never been easier.

THE T4 IS THE FUTURE OF THE NON-CONNECTED, PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTAT AND HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO DELIVER ENERGY EFFICIENCY WITH MINIMAL USER-INTERACTION. The T4 is packed full of intelligent features that ensure homeowners automatically enjoy the full benefits of increased energy efficiency and comfort: • Automated modulation control with TPI or OpenTherm improves energy efficiency • Optimum stop, start and delayed stop features learn how the room is heated, reducing user effort and improving heating efficiency • Screen interface offers easy and optimal heating adjustment And it’s just as easy to install in three simple steps – wire, power up and test, and finally, configure – before it’s ready to handover to the homeowner. A new wireless receiver box, redesigned with a flip-up wiring bar for easy installation also makes the wiring process more accessible than ever before.

T4

The T4 is compatible with any boiler and has ease of use and installation at its core, created to simplify home temperature scheduling. The thermostat is available in three models: the T4 standard, wired model, ideal for retrofit solutions; T4R wireless version with OpenTherm control via the receiver box offering an easy switch over from an existing wireless receiver box; and the T4M, wired modulating version with on-screen OpenTherm boiler information for additional user control. All models have 7 day 5/2 day & single day programming with a host of features making the T4 the best choice for a simple solution.

The Myson KICKSPACE® plinth heater has become increasingly popular as a convenient heat source for kitchens and bathrooms. The discreet design means that interior design is never compromised. Research conducted by Myson revealed that 72% of people would like more space in their kitchen making the KICKSPACE® a practical choice for any home as it saves precious wall space for kitchen units or alternative storage. The KICKSPACE® is also ideal for bathrooms, fitting discreetly into the plinth below the bath, opening up the possibility for flexible interior design in the areas of the home where maximising space is essential. “The Myson KICKSPACE® has proved itself over several decades to be one of the neatest solutions, for providing comfort heating while releasing valuable space, particularly when paired with a chic towel warmer such as the neat and stylish Innoko. It has become a firm favourite with lovers of minimalist design and traditional interiors alike. Its discreet profile means that it can adapt to any kitchen or bathroom design of the future.” The KICKSPACE® is ideal for creating a warm and welcoming interior space as it can work with three different fuel options; the first model runs directly from the central heating system.

But water treatment maintenance doesn’t just benefit homeowners by helping to prevent problems such as breakdowns, premature parts replacements and poor efficiency – it’s also great for merchants and installers, who can reap the rewards of regular additional sales and improved customer relations.

Results in Rapid Sales

Lifetime Boiler Protection

Including water treatment with a boiler service is a best practice trend that’s on the rise thanks to its role in ensuring on-going protection from corrosion and limescale.

7–6

Maintaining water treatment is an idea promoted in Sentinel’s best practice system of ‘clean, protect, maintain’. This approach, when followed and used in conjunction with Sentinel’s boiler-manufacturer endorsed chemicals, helps to provide heating systems with lifetime protection from corrosion and limescale. Briefly, it consists of: cleaning to remove contaminants (such as installation debris, flux residues and greases in new systems or sludge in older systems), using an appropriate chemical cleaning agent like Sentinel X400 High Performance Cleaner; protection, which involves dosing a chemical inhibitor to prevent corrosion and limescale; and maintenance to ensure continued protection. A simple yet potentially boiler-saving practice, maintenance involves checking inhibitor concentration (which can drop for a number of reasons, including partial draining of the system followed by refilling with raw mains water, poor closed system design, a faulty pump, and leaks) using a Sentinel X100 Quick Test Kit. This is followed by corrective actions, where required, such as topping up inhibitor levels and/or sealing small leaks or weeping joints with Sentinel Leak Sealer. The Eliminator Filter is also cleaned during a maintenance visit. Sentinel’s new no-fuss, mess-free RapidDose aerosols are ideally suited to service visits, as systems – no matter how awkward or difficult to reach - can be dosed with Sentinel’s award-winning chemicals in just

30 seconds. This is thanks to the product’s unique pre-assembled adapter which can be used in many different locations, such as via a radiator, male filling loop stop valve, bleed valve, boiler drain valve, and many filters (via the vent pin), for maximum flexibility. Each canister also features a ‘twist and dose’ mechanism, which means there’s no need to depress a lever or trigger, allowing for handsfree application. Finally, the new Rapid-Dose can is also smaller than its predecessor (just 300ml as opposed to 400ml), which makes for easier handling on site and takes up less space in an installer’s kit bag - and on merchants’ shelves. The new Rapid-Dose canisters are available with Sentinel X100 Inhibitor, Sentinel X400 High Performance Cleaner and Sentinel Leak Sealer chemicals, and can be tried out on a no-risk basis by installers, who can claim a free bottle of X100 Inhibitor from Sentinel (subject to terms and conditions ) if they don’t like the new X100 Rapid-Dose canister – not that Sentinel expects this to be the case, of course. The promotion runs until October 2017, giving merchants maximum opportunity to introduce the new Rapid-Dose products to customers and drive up sales.

OVERFIT® UNDERFLOOR HEATING A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

There is an increasing demand for installers to supply greener, more efficient heating systems to homes. As technology becomes more advanced, homes are becoming smarter and heating systems more intricate. One piece of technology that is growing in popularity is underfloor heating, with end users becoming more informed about the benefits of the heating system. Installing underfloor heating may seem difficult and complex, especially for

1

Retrofit projects, but they become more popular as renovations pick up speed in the marketplace. Providing an underfloor heating solution for a renovation is a bit trickier than standard UFH installation, however utilising the correct system and following advice from technical

Installing the JG Overfit® system Step 1: Preparing the base

3

The insulated panels for underfloor heating should be fitted to a flat surface and the sheet insulation must be fully supported.

Step 2: Planning & Pipework

4

Before you start laying any panels, you must work out the path that the pipework will take from the manifold to the zones, ensuring that a suitable design is in place. JG Speedfit provides a free CAD design service that assists in the layout of the underfloor heating system.

Step 3: Lay the panels

5

Layout the JG Overfit® panels, ensuring that they are both flat and firm. After the panels have been laid out and the area is covered, tape the joints into place using JGTAPE.

Step 4: Cutting the grooves

As not all of the grooves will be utilised, some of them will be covered with foil. Before installing the pipe into these grooves, it’s important that they’re cut with a sharp craft knife. The cut needs to be deep enough to fit the pipe as forcing it through the foil could damage the groove and prevent a steady hold for the pipe.

experts can help installers provide a solution that will benefit the end user. The JG Overfit® underfloor heating system consists of lightweight insulated panels with a high compressive strength. They can be used for lightweight floor coverings, such as laminate, carpet and engineered wood, but can also be installed over existing concrete flooring. The system can be installed in the following six steps shown below.

Step 5: Inserting the pipe Start inserting the pipe from the perimeter and work to the furthest circuit to be installed within the zone. Work up and down in a serpentine pattern, cut the foil where the pipework needs to make a return bend. Once this is laid, tape the return pipe to ensure it stays in place then the floor covering can be installed.

Step 6: Installing the floor cover If installing carpet, a plywood sheet should be fitted as a backing, at a thickness of at least 6mm depending on the intended use and load. If a floor covering, such as tongue grooved boards is used, it’s possible to place 25mm backing between the JG Overfit® board at the installation stage. If laying tiles over the underfloor heating. It’s important to use a heavy back board to prevent movement of the tiles.

Today there are now more larger options available, such as the latest additions to the UPS2 circulator family of British built pumps the UPS2 25-80 and 32-80. These pumps have been specially designed to augment the current domestic range and provide 8 metre options. They offer a number of benefits such as delivering enhanced efficiency, while the dimensions will ensure straightforward replacement with older UPS generations. These circulators have new more powerful motors and improved hydraulics which makes them perfect for use in a range of large domestic and small commercial applications as they can deal with a flow rate of 5.7 m3/h and a system pressure up to 10 bar.

BIGGER

CHOICES The pump circulator market has been through dramatic changes in recent years, driven by a combination of product innovation and legislative changes. To help you to make the right choice regardless of your circulator requirements Grundfos Pumps can offer a range of options that will meet the demand – big or small - that you may have.

One of the main benefits of today’s new generation pumps is that they save significant amounts of energy and Grundfos have been at the forefront of these developments. Something that is clearly in the MAGNA3 and MAGNA1 product ranges - that come complete with electronically controlled motors that are based on permanent magnet (PM) and compact stator technology. When Grundfos Pumps introduced the updated MAGNA3 range of commercial circulators in 2012 the family was quickly recognised as offering ‘best in class’ in terms of energy efficiency. This new generation of state-of-the-art circulator pumps built on the excellent reputation that MAGNA established when it was introduced in 2001. The MAGNA3 range was completed some years ago when additional models including stainless steel versions were added to the product families. With over 16 million electronically controlled Grundfos circulators installed globally, choosing a Grundfos option makes perfect sense. With so much attention on both the bigger and smaller details, they offer an important step forward in pump engineering. A point that has been proven by our products continuously winning many design and engineering awards and making bigger choices easier to make.
