Cool down this summer! Evaporative cooling is one of the healthiest and most cost-effective means of cooling air in buildings, achieving a saving of up to 80% of energy costs, compared with air conditioning.

Manufactured in Australia, these coolers have been awarded the Green Globe Award by the department of Energy, utilities and Sustainability. • Breezair evaporative coolers boast the highest cooling efficiency relative to any other coolers. • The hush-power fans of the Breezair Icon are quieter than any other standard evaporative coolers. • Sophisticated controllers manage indoor temperature, ventilation rate and humidity. • Water management systems ensure optimal use of water and save water. • The body of the cooler is so well designed that it is backed up with a 25-year warranty and will not warp or buckle in a harsh outdoor environment.

Benefits • Natural process: Evaporative cooling uses nature’s process of evaporating water to cool and gently humidify fresh air to create a cool, healthy and fresh indoor environment. • Fresh air: Evaporative coolers are open systems, meaning 100% fresh air is delivered into the building being cooled. This improves the levels of oxygen in the air, creating a healthy environment. • Cleaner indoor environment: The fresh air delivered into a building using evaporative cooling is filtered through water to remove dust, pollen and other outdoor contaminants.

• Energy efficient: Evaporative cooling uses 80% less energy compared with a standard air conditioner. The Breezair Icon evaporative cooling range can cool a home at a cost from as little as for running a 100W light-bulb. • Better for the environment: In addition to using less electricity; evaporative coolers use only the natural evaporation of water

Waterproofing versus dampproofing.

This is a problem that many of us have faced at least once in our lives – a problem that has the potential to develop into an absolute nightmare. Serious interior damage can occur from a leaky roof, in the form of mould, damaged plastering or even severe structural weakness and failure. Worse still, these problems can linger long after the actual repair has been made.

One of the greatest challenges is in finding the source of the leak – in many cases the source of the leak does not match up with where the leak appears inside. This can lead to a tremendous amount of frustration for you, the homeowner. This is where you need professional help…

MNA Decking and Flooring are leaders in their field. We are able to offer our clients the most prestigious African timbers for decking. With over 45 years of experience in the industry MNA Decking offers professional, accredited installations of quality composite and solid wood decking, with a wide variety of quality proven products to suit your individual needs and design. Apart from installations we offer maintenance & repairs of decks as well.

There is a distinct difference between dampproofing and waterproofing. Dampproofing is intended to keep out soil moisture while waterproofing keeps out both moisture and liquid water. Buildings have been dampproofed for years, a practice that used to be mistakenly referred to as waterproofing. companies.

Our composite Decking is an innovative and eco-friendly product as it is made from recycled material, 60% plastic and 40% wood. The general maintenance of composite decking is kept to a minimal because of its resistance to moisture, making it perfect to use as a pool or jetty deck. We guarantee quality and reliable service not only for the job at hand, but for support in the future. Our staff are well trained with experience in the industry.

All our work offers a workmanship guarantee!

Dampproofing is a coating, usually asphalt-based, that is either sprayed on or hand applied to the outside of the wall. Though less frequently recommended in modern residential construction, it is still an acceptable form of treatment in many situations. The drawbacks include an inability to seal larger cracks or holes left by form ties and the potential for damage by coarse or careless backfill. But with proper surface drainage, correctly installed foundation drains at the footing, and the absence of hydrostatic pressure to drive water infiltration, dampproofing can supply adequate and long-lasting protection for many crawl spaces and basements.

What is a tough flexible coating?

• Its unique formula provides extreme elasticity and cover. • 95% memory recovery, allowing for excessive movement. • Is ideal for over-coating most substrates including concrete, corrugated iron, galvanized steel, fibre cement, metal and insulation boards for both pitched roofs and flat roofs. • Cures into a seamless membrane with: – Waterproofing ability – Corrosion resistance – Chemical resistance – Encapsulation

appearance that makes a statement An automated garage door is no longer a luxury, but a necessity from a security point of view. It is imperative to ensure that the motor of choice is fitted with a safety mechanism, (if an obstacle is encountered) i.e. a child, dog or your car, the motor automatically stops & reverses preventing injury or damage. Always make sure that the installer is well qualified and is employed by a reputable garage door specialist. Adjusting and balancing a garage door to ensure smooth and safe operation is vitally important to the lifespan of the motor.

We offer the best service and experience.

The Benefits of Gutters

• Erosion can be prevented and this preserves landscaping and turf • Water damage to siding can be prevented • Water staining on brick and stone masonry can be prevented • Settling and cracking of sidewalks, patios and driveways can be lessened • Exterior doors and garage overhead doors can be preserved

Here’s why rain gutters are so important...

Properly Installed Gutters

The importance of properly installed and maintained gutters can’t be stressed enough. Every house should have gutters, and in recent years building officials across the land have been recognizing this. Many municipalities around the country are now requiring gutters on all new residential construction.

• Soil around the house is stabilized • Foundation problems can be avoided • Flooding under houses and in basements can be prevented

The majority of houses with gutters don’t have a system that is complete and installed correctly. A properly installed gutter system will include seamless gutters on every sloped roof edge.

The gutters should not hold standing water, should not leak, should be securely fastened to the fascias, and should have down spouts that are securely fastened to the exterior of the house. Best Gutters offer a 1 year guarantee on workmanship and up to 15 years on materials. Although all our teams are trained and experienced, they are still supervised and graded by our team leaders whilst on site, ensuring that work is finished off neatly and correctly. Our materials remain corrosion-free, colourfast and maintenance free, so investing in our superior products means that you need never worry about your guttering again.

PAINT Flip ‘N’ Roll® – THE RIGHT WAY TO PAINT By adding value to people’s homes for the past 36 years, they have developed a proud historical presence.


RUGGED BEAUTY TEXTURED PAINT When remodelling a home, choosing the right colour and quality of paint is a very important decision for your dream home. Without the correct painting technique the best quality paint will not yield the desirable result. The use of a roller ensures a uniform coat by priming the roller to remove excess paint. Conventional painters pour paint into a paint tray which has a section for priming of the roller. This usually results in spillage and wastage. For larger jobs painters constantly pour paint into the tray, typically with a 1 litre capacity. Once the job is done the tray needs to be washed,

further adding to wastage of paint. Olympic Paints® has developed an innovation to simplify the job. But first, Who is Olympic Paints® ? Olympic Paints® has been adding colour to memories since 1981. A South African paint manufacturer operating from the south of Johannesburg. With the everincreasing demands in the paint industry over the years, Olympic Paints® has excelled in the marketplace through constant research and development, concentrating on quality, affordability and excellent service. With a diverse staff complement of over 100 employees, they have managed to strengthen and maintain their position as a reputable brand in an evolving environment. And now Olympic Paints® has a new exclusive innovation which is called Flip ‘N’ Roll®

Well, what is this new innovation all about? Flip ‘N’ Roll® is revolutionary and innovative. Olympic Paints® is the first and only company in the world to present this cleaner, faster and innovative product. Painting made easy with Flip ‘N’ Roll® is a totally new concept in the paint industry which is a bucket with the dual purpose of a built-in paint tray. Developed and patented exclusively by Olympic Paints®. With Flip ‘N’ Roll®, paint is packed in a square 20L container which has a built-in tray. Without having to constantly pour into a small tray, the job will be cleaner and faster with less wastage. At the end of the job the lid is simply closed and all the paint will be contained on the inside of the bucket making the job faster and cleaner with less fuss. The new innovative Flip ‘N’ Roll® is

Dual Purpose Built-In Tray available with the Platinum Plus® range from Olympic Paints®. An all-inclusive range of paints, primers and sealers needed to complete a paint contract from start to finish. The range contains a 3-in1 plaster primer, fibre-reinforced waterproofing, specialist roof paint, super-gloss enamel, a soft sheen, smooth matt and textured top coat. Flip ‘N’ Roll® will also be available in a Hi-Hiding Contractors PVA, a super acrylic PVA designed specifically for contractors.

Keep your children safe around the pool Drowning remains one of the top causes of unnatural childhood death in South Africa. According to recent statistics released by private hospitals nearly 72% of near-drownings occur around the home and only 1.22% at the beach. Three-year-old children seem particularly vulnerable and constitute 45.45% of the total.

Furthermore, for every child that dies from drowning, five are left with permanent brain damage from the lack of oxygen that occurs in a near-drowning. Drowning is commonly a silent event. The child makes no noise to alert their parent or carer. Babies can drown in just a few minutes while making a cup of coffee. In most developed countries, pool safety is a legislative issue and pool builders are obliged by law to advise on and fit adequate safety measures to any pool they install. If a pool has been secured for children, it is generally a decision that has been made by a responsible pool owner or Contractor. How responsible are you as a pool owner?

Let in the Light, not the Sun ! 4Ever Sheeting is a relatively new product, since 2006, that has proved itself to be durable and hardy, even in the harsh South African climate. It is an excellent DIY product. Doing installations is a breeze as the material is light, flexible, easy to cut and best of all safe to use because it will not cause serious injuries or cuts and scratches when handling it.

It is shatterproof, weather and hail resistant as well as UV protected with over 70% light transmission. It is therefore a superior product at a more cost effective price because of its longevity. Other colours can be produced at an additional cost should a client need a colour that is not currently available. There is also a potential to expand the colour range if there is a demand for other colours. With the roof sheeting being made from Polyethylene, rust is also not a factor, which makes it ideal for South African conditions with a 7 year guarantee and cheaper than fibreglass.

IDEAL FOR: • Patios • Carports • Zozo Huts • Hot Houses • Pool Houses • Factory Skylights, etc This product has been tested by the Institute for Polymer Studies at the University of Stellenbosch and carries a 7 year guarantee on the material.

the cities of the future. Abundant and prolific access to information is the key to enabling the progressive first-world cities of tomorrow. Vumatel is laying the foundations for our digital future. Vumatel was founded in 2014 by industry veterans Niel Schoeman and Johan Pretorius, who pioneered Fibre to the Home (FTTH) in South Africa with a pilot project in Parkhurst. Vumatel has since connected homes to high speed open access fibre broadband across Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

A mere 15 years ago, you couldn’t use your landline and connect to the internet at the same time. Just 3 years ago a 1Gbps fibre connection, which was only available to businesses, cost the customer R100 000 a month and today it costs a home-owner under R2 000. The rapid acceleration of progress and innovation is underpinned by advances in technology. We now have a more powerful computer in our pockets, than was accessible to NASA in 1969, when they sent the first man to the moon. That kind of access to technology has put us on a path of exponential growth.

Prior to launching Vumatel, Niel Schoeman and Johan Pretorius ran large fibre optic projects across South Africa, connecting cellular towers and businesses to world-class fibre broadband. Their experience in the industry positioned them well to start the first open access fibre-tothe-home company in South Africa.

Since launching the business in 2014, Vumatel has been voted the best fixed-line broadband provider in South Africa. Vumatel builds the network in partnership with the community and connects every home, complex and apartment block to super-fast world-class fibre broadband.

Vumatel also connects every Primary and High School passed when deploying the network to free 1GBPS fibre broadband internet. Vumatel builds an open access fibre network which means that Vumatel is not a service provider but simply installs the infrastructure. Residents can then choose from a number of Internet Service Providers for internet packages ranging from R396 per month* The open access nature of the network prevents the duplication of infrastructure and drives down prices for the end-user. Vumatel is recognised as the FTTH industry pioneer and leader. Vumatel has one of the most diverse ranges of services on its network and ensures that the end user has a world of options to choose from. This also makes the market far more competitive and drives down prices for the consumer. Vumatel has over 20 Internet Service Providers on its network ranging from Cell C and MWEB to Afrihost and Telkom. Vumatel is committed to building a connected South Africa. As our broadband demands increase and we rely on the internet more and more, there is a tangible need for a futureproof technology that will support the growing demands for internet speed and capacity. That future-proof technology is VUMA Fibre.

Fibre is the veins and arteries that form the foundation for smart cities and pumps life into
