Bathrooms & Washrooms Mira serves more ACEs In response to customer demand, Mira Showers is enhancing its successful ACE range of framed shower enclosures with the addition of four new sizes: two quadrants and two pentagon shapes. The two new sizes of quadrant are 1200 x 900mm and 1000 x 800mm, with both featuring 5mm toughened safety glass and frameless centre-opening doors with a double roller for a consistent slide movement, providing door openings of 490 mm and 420mm respectively. The pentagon enclosure with its minimalist styling is ideal for situations where space is limited and the two new sizes - 900 x 900mm and 1200 x 900mm – extend the versatility of the range even further. Featuring 4mm framed glass side panels, the enclosures are formed by combining pivot or bi-fold doors with the pentagon panel pack. These enclosures share the same features for ease of installation as the rest of the range. Each wall profile is adjustable by up to 29mm and doors are supplied ‘unhanded’, so they are easily reversible for left and right hand opening, enabling installers to deliver a swift, professional installation with little disruption. Each enclosure comes with all the hallmarks of quality consumers expect from a premium product: a 10 year guarantee; power shower approval; and the chrome finish demanded by 90% of consumers interested in this type of enclosure.

Hotelier & Hotel Design - November 2013

Quality is integral to all Mira shower enclosures, and the ACE range is no different. Doors are tested for 32,000 slam cycles – equivalent to 20 years use by a family of four showering daily. Similarly, every panel tested to BSEN14428+A1 (2008) which represents the impact of being hit by a 20 stone person falling over. To ensure a trouble-free performance in the case of the pentagon enclosures the bi-fold doors feature a planet gear mechanism that correctly aligns the door, while the adjustable ball catch used on the pivot door offers additional installation flexibility. The sliding doors used on the quadrants have dual-roller bogies that ensure a smooth and consistent performance. As part of the ACE range, these enclosures are compatible with Mira’s Flight shower trays – by far the most popular brand in the UK – and challenge market standards in terms of style, value, choice and ease of installation.

Europe’s leading experts for built in bathroom components




stablished in 2003 by Mike Eddowes, Epsom-based Flairlilght Designs Limited is one of the South East’s leading authorities in lighting design primarily for large residential properties. Born to satisfy the demand for aesthetic lighting from property developers, architects and selfbuilders, Flairlight have compiled a team with over 100 years’ experience in lighting design, supply and project management – an impressive figure to say the least. Mike commented: “I have over 27 years in the industry myself, working in many positions within the industry. This we feel, makes us unique as we fully understand the complexities of product installations and seamlessly integrate the design with the installation to ensure that what we specify and design can actually be installed.” In addition to their core strength, the design and supply of innovative and creative lighting and mood lighting for prestigious properties, the Flairlight team have the capabilities to offer an on-site assistance and support service which sees them advise clients on installation techniques and complex scenarios including LED, RGB and Dimming. “This is to ensure that a customer’s design becomes reality,” added Mike. The latest in the Flairlight range is the impressive LED technology that complies with current government legislations and meets building regulation guidelines. “Throughout my many years in the industry I have been involved with many customers that have been told information that is not necessarily true. Just because you are told an application complies with building regs doesn’t mean that its true. But with us, we guarantee that all product meet the required requests,” explained Mike. “The basis of what we do is show and explain, in great detail, everything that a client needs to know before making their final decision. For example, with our state-of-the-art LED technologies, we offer a specialist service that guides clients through the products that we feel will exceed their requirements in regards to aesthetics without compromising on the design aspect. If we feel that another application is more suited, then we won’t hesitate to recommend.” Flairlight have recently launched a New Product Selector – a pioneering application that introduces users on understanding each application, and why & how to achieve their dream lighting effect. With over 300 products available, the product selector is “better than the traditional catalogue”, according to Mike, as it offers a detailed explanation on why each application is used and proposes how to achieve a desired effect.

Products that don’t come back for customers that do!

Mike said: “The Product Selector is a revelation within the lighting industry and is set to guarantee great results for our customers. This coupled with our flawless service is an offering that won’t be matched anywhere else.”

Lighting The new EcoStar 600A by PhotonStar is an adjustable LED downlight offering flexibility with a 20 degree tilt. The EcoStar 600A is an expansion of the award-winning EcoStar 600 range and has the same design with higher build quality and greater consideration of aesthetics, making it the most efficient LED compact adjustable downlight available on the wholesale market.

Hotelier & Hotel Design - November 2013

Designed to reduce project costs and deliver rapid payback, the EcoStar 600A outperforms other LED trade products in output, efficiency and light quality; reducing the number of fittings need and dramatically lowering energy costs by 47% against other Part L compliant LED downlights. With a build heritage of over 5 years, the EcoStar 600 range also offers reliability and proven performance.


The unique product design reduces glare and provides a highly desirable “non-LED� appearance, whilst its adjustability provides more design options. It delivers light in a wide 70 degree beam which results in typically 50% better light uniformity and allows wider spacing than standard 38 degree products. The EcoStar 600A is ideal for challenging spaces, requiring a void depth of just 63mm; one of the shallowest void depths available for an adjustable trade LED downlight. The adjustable downlight is IP65 rated for use in wet areas and is part of the only ECA compliant* domestic range in the wholesale market. *subject to driver choice and dimming options (see individual datasheets). You should seek qualified accounting advice prior to assuming that a project or product is eligible. Generally Enhanced Capital Allowance compliance cannot be achieved
