How to create space with pocket door systems With confidence in the economy on the rise, more people are looking to get their foot on the property ladder which is putting the construction industry under pressure to build additional housing. This means that space is becoming limited and so developers building properties are on the lookout for space saving solutions that can create a more open plan and spacious living environment. Pocket door systems are one answer, says Lili Wang, product manager at IronmongeryDirect.

Also referred to as ‘concealed sliding doors’, pocket door systems can help to save up to eight per cent more space within a room, compared to traditional hinged doors. They consist of a steel pocket door frame and an overhead track that the door can slide along into the wall. This modern style is proving popular with homeowners because the door seems to glide effortlessly into the wall and can be fitted easily in any doorway around the home. The Klug Ultra Pocket Door Kit, for instance, is an ideal replacement for traditional hinge doors as the door does not require additional room to be opened and closed. For example, it works particularly well for en-suite bathrooms that are connected to small bedrooms or closets where storage space may be limited. This door kit enables customers to be able to choose a door separately that perhaps can fit in

allows the door to close smoothly and prevents it from slamming shut – which is ideal for households with young children as this reduces the risk of trapped fingers. It can also help to prevent the spread of fire when used along with a fire resistant door. Overall, pocket door systems are a simple and versatile solution when space within a property is limited. They are an ideal product to recommend to homeowners who may be struggling for space and are a more cost-effective method than relocating.

with the style of rest of the property, but complete systems are also available. Self-closing accessories can also be added to pocket door systems to enable the door to close automatically after it has been opened. The simple wire pulley

Ultex - made for the trade The fast growing premium brand have added another gem to their collection of unique and innovative products. The latest addition are the new DIRECTCONNECTTM screwdriver bits. You wouldn’t think much could change with a screwdriver bit; however ULTEX have tackled two occurring problems often encountered while using them. Firstly, it’s not uncommon for bit tips to break out during heavy use (far too common for some!), which is why ULTEX have manufactured these bits using a higher quality, more durable material. In addition, they feature a

‘torsion zone’ that absorbs excessive torque generated by impact drivers, protecting the bit head. The combination of stronger material and torsion zone greatly reduces the amount of tip break outs often caused by impact drivers. Secondly the new DIRECTCONNECTTM bits measure 32mm in length, long enough to incorporate not only a torsion zone but an E-form connection meaning the bits connect directly into an impact driver without the need for a holder. Therefore greatly reducing overall size of the impact driver and bit,

Network VEKA hosts another fantastic AGM and Awards Evening!

Around 240 people attended Network VEKA's ever-popular AGM and Awards Evening in Stratford-upon-Avon. Attendees were able to visit the day's specially-built 'Business Centre' where numerous companies and industry bodies were on hand to answer questions and give suggestions on all aspects of business; from finance and training to marketing and more. Visitors were particularly interested in

Network VEKA's new training offering - the Network V E K A Academy. Network VEKA's MD John Ogilvie was joined on stage by Compere John Meredith to present the official AGM. John was quick to praise the many successes of the membership: “It was a record year on a number of measures... £64 million pounds worth of products fitted, in almost 18000 installations, which is up 9% over the previous highest registration total. That’s £1.25 million fitted per week! “Installations of VEKA products are up around 18%, which is

more than two and a half times the market growth rate. “Around £880 million has been installed since Network VEKA was formed and average installed values are the highest for six years. All of this.... and still customer satisfaction rates remain around 97%!” John explained that The VEKA UK Group's MD, Dave Jones, had been welcomed as Chairman of the Network VEKA Board and invited him to say a few words. Dave Jones also congratulated the membership and articulated how proud he was of the support offering from The VEKA UK Group: “As Managing Director of The VEKA UK Group, people might say I'm biased.... but I genuinely believe that - between Network VEKA

and the Approved Installer Scheme - we offer a scale of support that can't be matched in the industry. “Network VEKA is the pinnacle organisation for installers in the glazing trade. “Myself and the team at VEKA remain committed to helping promote the Network and to building upon its sterling reputation. I couldn't be more impressed by all that has been achieved over the last 12 months: record-breaking sales.... record registrations.... and more milestones than ever before. You should all be very proud of yourselves. We couldn't promote the Network in the way that we do, without all your hard work.” With the day's event rounded off - flower power, flares and platforms were the order of the evening! The evening began with a Champagne Reception before the Awards were announced by Network VEKA Brand Ambassador Steve Davis. The team were delighted to have gone from Best Newcomer at the last AGM, to

National Winner at this year's event! Alongside this impressive feat, the FCD installation team also won Fitter of the Year after being observed carrying out a series of practical and written exercises. Steve Davis presented the awards and passed on his congratulations: “To win Fitter of the Year and go from being Best Newcomer, to winning Best in Eastern England and Overall National Winner really is a fantastic achievement! In the Network VEKA awards, you're competing against the best of the best - so to come out on top says a lot about your customer service. Congratulations.” Putting the FUN in fundraising Network VEKA managed to raise more than £700 for The Encephalitis Society by requesting donations from member companies to take advantage of the 1970s props available!

Pegler Yorkshire launches Building environmentally Lindab are Stepping Up Support HM The Queen honours Ancon Reusing otherwise waste material is one New Rainline sales team are committed with a second Queen’s Award new info hub website to driving customer success. Three years after receiving the Leading manufacturer of plumbing and heating solutions, Pegler Yorkshire, has launched a website which offers much more than general product or technical data. “With the plethora of information now available at the touch of button we wanted to offer our community of specifiers, installers and merchants a hub of information that would address important issues relevant to them”, said Phill Jackson Marketing and New Business Director at Pegler Yorkshire. “Over the years we have built upon our huge amount of experience and knowledge of the industry and created a successful portfolio of some of the world’s most iconic plumbing brands it is this that has uniquely positioned us as a company able to offer unrivalled and unbiased advice which we have incorporated into our new website.”

of the most environmentally friendly actions a manufacturer can take, and Durisol UK can proudly make this claim in the creation of its building system. Softwood chippings – which could come as waste from a saw mill, or even from reclaimed pallets – is used in the making of the blocks in the Durisol system. These chippings are mixed with a specially formulated cementitious compound, and then pressed into a mould. The resultant blocks have clear channels that run from top to bottom. Blocks are stagger placed on top of one another (no mortar required), then – thanks to the channel which now runs from the top to the bottom of the wall – are filled with concrete. This produces an immensely strong wall that offers high levels of thermal and sound insulation, and a structure that will withstand the test of time.

Nigel Stokes, Commercial Manager for Lindab Ltd.’s Building Product division has carefully selected a new sales team. Five Business Development Managers with expertise in technical specifiation and account management will provide regional support to merchants, contractors, developers, architects and home owners. To drive the business forward, Nigel announced a Kick-Start strategy at their first Rainline sales conference in the UK. The strategy focusess on customer success and includes improved delivery services, refurbished facilities, expansions to the product range and a dedicated Marketing Manager. Rainline is a lightweight, cost effective steel rainwater system which has been manufactured by Lindab for over 50 years. ENQUIRY-Card 103 ENQUIRY-Card 104 ENQUIRY-Card 105

Brick Effect Render

from Bostik Bostik’s Brick Effect Render is a simple, easy to apply two-part render system designed to give a realistic brick and mortar appearance to block work, concrete, cement and a range of other surfaces. The system is applied in two easy steps and requires no previous rendering experience. A grey mortar undercoat is applied first and allowed to dry, followed by a brick coloured face coat which, once it has started to cure, is cut through with a cutter tool to expose the grey mortar underneath, creating an authentic looking brick and mortar joint effect. Both coats are silicone polymer modified render, offering excellent adhesion and weather resistance whilst remaining vapour permeable. The face coat is available in a range of different colours akin to a selection of the most

popular brick types in the UK. The Brick Effect Render system provides a simple two-step method to achieving a durable and visually appealing render finish. It’s a great option for projects where the appearance of a wall needs to be updated – such as garden walls or prefabricated buildings. A brick effect render finish is also available to certified installers as part of the Bostik Climatherm external wall insulation system, providing an alternative to traditional silicone and acrylic renders. The flexibility of the Climatherm system’s brick effect render finish delivers an effective solution in areas where planning permission may dictate the visual criteria of a development.

Nestle Spain achieves high design with Altro Safety Flooring 1,000 people work daily at the headquarters of NestlÊ in Barcelona, Spain, and the company hosts more than 50,000 visitors annually. This high level of traffic also spills over into the catering and cafeteria areas. These areas have been recently modernised with a range of Altro safety flooring products to provide better service to staff and visitors. An essential part of the refurbishment was the choice of flooring. There was a need for a high design using different colours and shapes, but it also had to adhere to safety and hygiene regulations for dining and catering areas. The project also needed to be completed quickly to minimise disruption to the normal activity of the dining rooms. With 250,000 meals served annually at the offices of NestlÊ, Eurest Catalunya, a company belonging to Compass Group, was able to install Altro safety flooring without interrupting the normal business day. In the self service and dining room areas, approximately 1,000m² of Altro Walkway 20 in two different colours and Altro Wood Safety were used. Altro Stronghold 30  was used in the

kitchen. For the cafe on the ground floor, about 200m² of two different shades of Altro Walkway 20 were used. Altro flooring was chosen for its slip resistance, versatility and ease of installation and the ability to create a high spec design without compromising on safety. Altro Stronghold 30 is Altro’s specialist commercial kitchen flooring, and is ideal for areas where grease, oil and fats may be present. It achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance (TRRL≼55, R12). It is designed to minimise risk in wet and greasy conditions for the lifetime of the flooring. As well as helping to keep staff safe from slips, it also helps reduce their fatigue, thanks to its 3mm thickness which provides noise reduction and comfort underfoot. Altro Walkway is a hugely

Made from moisture-resistant P5 grade particleboard, Caberdek has a tough nonslip plastic coating on its upper surface to protect the board from damage or dirt resulting from following trades, such as plastering. The protective film is also capable of protecting boards which are exposed to the elements up to 42 days following installation. Once the building is finished, the film is simply peeled off to reveal a pristine surface ready for carpeting or other floor finishes. Many builders now employ the Caberfix Pro Kit, a powerful sealing and fixing system for installing Caberdek flooring.

As a dry screed flooring system, the award winning ScreedBoard® by Cellecta, removes the drying times associated with wet screeds. Dry properties allow floor finishes to be introduced immediately and for developments to be completed sooner. On ground floors they can help achieve optimum underfloor heating conditions for occupants, on upper floors they can be used as a combined heating and sound proofing solution. ScreedBoard®’s low thermal resistance allow them to outperform common floor finishes including wet screeds and chip boards. Visit or email for more information. ENQUIRY-Card 111 ENQUIRY-Card 112

A High Performance from Remmers To compliment their recently refurbished showroom, a new ‘high tech’ workshop has been constructed at Charles Hurst Ferrari, the official Ferrari dealer in Northern Ireland. Remmers UK Ltd along with McLaughlin and Harvey Contractors were appointed to oversee the installation of a flooring system in keeping with the Ferrari brand and suitable for a workshop environment. The existing old concrete floor in the workshop was constructed in several slabs and therefore a high potential for movement existed. The floor required filling and levelling prior to the application of the new flexible surface finish. The system proposed by Remmers was a flexible 3mm visco elastic PUR resin system with a polyurethane seal coat. The seal coat has integral R11 slip rating and a high degree of chemical resistance.

Guardian Roof

To Unveil New Sales Software for Team Guardian Installers and Fabricators Staffordshire-based Guardian Roof will unveil new sales software for members of its Team Guardian Registered Installer Scheme later this month.

The new software will improve Team Guardian installers’ efficiency and conversion rates; plus help increase capacity for Team Guardian fabricators. Developed exclusively for Guardian Roof by RoofWright, the software can produce an infinite number of designs using over 200 unique templates and five Metro tile designs. The software also focuses on customer experience and new commercial benefits. It enables Team Guardian

IKO shortlisted for UK Roofing Awards

installers’ associated retailers to engage customers directly in the design process using virtually-rendered realtime graphics. And the software offers massive time savings; allows for instant precise pricing of jobs; and, features structural checks to guarantee the integrity of each job. Further process time savings are predicted to transform fabrication capacity. For Guardian Roof, Ross Darcy said, “Just like anyone who purchases a Guardian Roof replacement sold roof system, our Team Guardian members expect the very best professional service and customer experience. The new software is easy to use and gives our registered installers everything our customers expect of the UK market leader.

“Times are changing. And I think that some fabricators and installers who fail to keep pace with new technology risk getting left behind. I remember the bad old days when it was all faxes, random emails and back-of-a-fag-packet cost calculations. You just can’t get away with that any more. “As an industry we've all come so far. And our new software represents the latest chapter. The software communicates exactly what everyone needs to know at every point in the process and adds even more exclusive value for our Team Guardian members.” Last year Guardian Roof launched a new Team Guardian membership drive targeting a total of 200 accredited installers by 2016. In less than four years, Team Guardian has already established a network of 23 fabricators and over 150 team guardian installers throughout the UK. But demand for the first solid roof system with LABC and LABSS approval

- has seen enquiries increase in 2014 by over 200%. A Guardian Warm Roof is best installed by a registered Team Guardian installer. The scheme is designed to allow homeowners verify Team Guardian Registered Installers, and prevent competitors falsely claiming to supply the patented roof system. In addition to the right to install Guardian Roof and access the new software, Team Guardian Registered Installers enjoy additional exclusive benefits including full training; sales models; official Team Guardian ID’s and lanyards; promotion on the Guardian Warm Roof website; and crucially, leads from a local fabricator.

IKO PLC is a finalist at the UK Roofing Awards 2015, run by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC). IKO has been shortlisted in the Liquid Roofing & Waterproofing Category with contractor Tower Asphalt Ltd for ‘Cotlandswick’, a series of 1960s threestorey housing blocks. IKO’s products have also been used in two projects shortlisted in the Reinforced Bitumen Category. Contractor M&J Group is a double finalist for the ‘NeoNatal Unit at Hammersmith Hospital’, and ‘Building 5 – Culham Science Centre’. Both awards submissions were in conjunction with IKO. The award ceremony will take place on 15th May in London.

Year-end accounts show 32.8 per cent year-on-year growth at leading lightweight steel roofing tile firm Metrotile UK. The Chippenham-based company enjoyed sales of just over £7.1 million in its year 2014/15 which came to a close at the end of January. Following a strong end to the year, the figure was even higher than forecast and is up by 32.8 per cent on the previous year’s sales of £5.3 million. Pre-tax profits fell slightly from £510,000 in 2013/14 to £493,000 in 2014/15, following an investment in marketing activities of more than £300,000 as the company bids to break into the mainstream domestic construction.

SIGA Slate was carefully selected for the renovation of Hounds Road, a private residential property in Chipping Sodbury, Bristol. The roofing renovation took place on an old stone farmhouse and storage building, and was carried out by Cains building services Ltd of Kingswood, Bristol. In total, approximately 4,200 500x250 slates were laid over a 210m2 area. SIGA’s take off service was utilised to assist with quantities and ensure accuracy. Hounds Road is in an area where roofing materials require Welsh Park Conservation Officer approval, and SIGA 32 was chosen as an approved alternative to Welsh slate, originally used in the area. The roofscape required a high end finish, which SIGA 32 offers aesthetically, as its blue/grey colouring replicates closely historical Welsh quarries, such as Ffestiniog. ENQUIRY-Card 539

Sandtoft, the roof brand of leading supplier of wall, roof and landscaping innovations, Wienerberger, has announced the launch of the groundbreaking new Rivius roof tile – a product that boasts all the aesthetic beauty of slate, with all of the benefits of a clay roof tile The Rivius tile is an authentic alternative to slate, a material that is time consuming, complex and costly to lay Rivius an interlocking clay tile with no need for double lapping, meaning it is faster to install In turn, it is far cheaper to use due to its large format, with money saved on labour costs due to the quicker install time and material costs, as clay is a more cost-effective material than traditional slate.

Layher Scaffolding systems receive high praise - at Winchester Cathedral With scaffolding in place for up to four years, and visible to 1000’s of visitors over the period, the selection of equipment for works at Winchester Cathedral has had to meet very clear-cut objectives. Blencowe Scaffolding turned to Layher equipment to fulfil a range of access needs in this prestigious building and highlights tidy appearance as one of the key considerations

behind the equipment specification. “This factor, together with the speed of erection, were two of the important elements,” comments David Blencowe, Director. “Scaffold erection in three key areas of the cathedral were addressed including a temporary birdcage scaffold constructed in the presbytery to enable beams to be erected off the high-level clerestory walkways. The installation also

features a suspended dustproof deck, installed beneath the beam level with birdcage access scaffold erected above to provide working access for ceiling and window conservation works. “We also installed external scaffold to provide access for stonework restoration with an additional birdcage erected in the south transept for access to walls and windows for refurbishment and cleaning procedures.” In the latter case, the project also made full use of the Layher Protect system which is proven to provide a highly effective screen against dust and debris – of particular relevance in such an important location. Tight timescale requirements had to be addressed throughout the project, not least to accommodate ongoing activities within the cathedral itself. “The speed of installation that can be achieved with our scaffolding systems played a

major role for Blencowe Scaffolding in this context,” says Sean Pike, Layher’s UK Managing Director. “Its versatility and wide bay design also contributed to the efficiency on site – the absence of cross-bracing, for example, simplifying movement around the scaffold, particularly for the stone refurbishment works.” Following the successful installations, Blencowe

Scaffolding reports that it is now working on the next phase of access provision at the cathedral – building further on the company’s 25-year history of working on a number of projects in this internationally important location. ENQUIRY-Card 545

34 Roofing, Cladding & Insulation Solvent-free Liverpool John Lennon Airport is the 12th busiest in the UK, with flights to around 60 destinations and passenger numbers of more than 4.2 million each year. The control tower plays an essential role in ensuring that flights take off, approach and land safely to keep air traffic on schedule. Not only does Liverpool John Lennon Airport rely on the control towerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24/7 operation, but Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield Airport also receives vital data from a transmitter located on the roof too. This demanding environment meant that the roof refurbishment had to be carried out without any disturbance to air traffic controllers, who must be able to concentrate fully at all times. As a result, roofing contractor, W Swindells & Son Roofing selected Kemper Systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s odourless Kemperol 2KPUR cold applied liquid membrane for the project. Explains John Swindells from W Swindells & Son: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nuisance odours from a solvent-based or low odour system could have been distracting for the air traffic controllers who work in a relatively confined space for several hours at a time. Restricted Access Not only did the air traffic control tower require the W Swindells & Son team to work at height in an exposed location with the airport terminal on one side and the River Mersey on the other, it also involved limited access and strict security procedures, which prompted the contractor to complete the job with just a two man team. John continues: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each day the installation team had to undergo full airport security checks to work airside at the airport and the only way to access the towerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roof was through the control room itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once again, the use of a cold-applied liquid system was ideally suited to meet these challenges: the use of hot works would not only have created noise and

odours but would have involved carrying cumbersome equipment and gas bottles through the control room. Instead, we just needed to take manageable sized sealed containers of Kemperol 2KPUR through the control room to the roof, along with the reinforcement fleece and rollers.â&#x20AC;? Installation Challenges The control towerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing roof surface was bitumen which had not been replaced since the building was first constructed. The refurbishment saw W Swindells & Son overlay the existing substrate with the Kemperol 2K-PUR liquid membrane in a single wet-on-wet process. After cleaning the substrate, the installation team applied Kemper Systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s D Primer which was left to cure before application of the liquid membrane began. The Kemperol 2K-PUR resin was applied section-by-section to the roof using rollers. The flexible reinforcement fleece was cut to size and shape on site and laid onto the wet resin. The installation team then immediately applied more resin to fully saturate the fleece removing any air bubbles or creases with the rollers. The resin then cured to form a seamless, durable and U/V stable monolithic membrane.

Many roof refurbishments need to take place while the building remains fully operational and sometimes a businessas-usual approach is a business critical necessity. That was certainly the case at Liverpool John Lennon Airport when wear and tear demanded the installation of a new roof for the control tower without any disruption to its 24/7 operation.

Non-Slip Once the new roof surface had been installed, W Swindells & Son created a non-slip maintenance walkway by applying a central strip of Kemper Systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kemperdur TC surfacing on the roof along with anthracite-coloured quartz aggregate as the wearing course. This finish was also applied to the section of the roof where access is gained from the control room. ENQUIRY-Card 549

transportation and installation much easier. As well as the difference in weight, the cylinders also feature extremely low heat loss figures (as low as 1.41kW/h day) which means the customer pays less to maintain the heat within the tank,” says Goggin. Pete Seddon from the Rinnai UK Technical Department adds: “One other benefit of the Solo utilising a stainless steel cylinder, is that the life expectancy of the material is far greater than that of a glass-lined equivalent as glass suffers from thermal shock causing it to crack after a period of time. Infinity Solo is renewables compatible so the customer can, at a later date, integrate a solar thermal or heat pump system with minimal alterations as the units will come pre-fitted with relevant tap ins to accommodate renewable technologies.

Flexalen Pipework selected for Stirling Bioenergy Project Flexenergy unveils low carbon, high temperature solar pipe system

Web: Tel: 01592 773167

Flexenergy has launched a range of flexible, corrugated steel pipe for solar thermal installations, combining the benefits of advanced insulation with high temperature performance. One of the UK’s first RHI-funded biogas plants is optimising its energy efficiency by installing a pipe network that benefits from low thermal conductivity. Strathendrick Biogas selected Flexenergy’s Flexalen pipe technology when developing a new Anaerobic Digestion Plant at Claylands Farm, Glasgow to fuel a combined heat and power unit. The plant generates renewable energy and natural fertilisers from agricultural by-products and distillery co-products. In the project, the biogas produced by anaerobic digestion drives the CHP system, which in turn creates power that can be exported to the national grid, thereby creating revenue for the farm via feed-in tariffs. The plant not only delivers power, it also separates solids from liquid, enabling the liquid to be spread on the farm as fertiliser and the solids to be dried and used on the dairy farm as animal

bedding. The engine in the plant produces as much heat as it does power, with heat converted into hot water and carried to the drying unit via the low carbon Flexalen pipe network. “Cost, quality, efficiency and ease of installation were all important factors when choosing the pipework for this project,” explains Robert Kennedy, Director of Strathendrick Biogas Limited. “The Flexalen pre-insulated pipe system installed was the ideal technology for this situation being lightweight and highly flexible. The water tight bond between the corrugated outer pipe and the polyolefine insulation also satisfies the requirements for sustainable construction”. The plastic pipe system also reduces heat loss potential over conventional pipe, resulting in improved overall energy efficiency, lower long term life cycle costs and extended operational periods between pipe replacements.

FLEXALEN HT augments the green credentials of thermal energy through polyolefine insulated steel pipe, using an environmentally-friendly foam that combines low embedded carbon in production with low thermal transfer and recyclability at the end of life. It is also non-toxic if burned. Central to the new high temperature system is a corrugated stainless steel pipe resistant to constant temperatures up to 150oC. It is suitable for above and below ground installation, with its UV-resistant, high impact, and flexible outer casing. “Solar thermal energy is an important element in the renewables mix and every component of each system – including the connecting pipework - must play its part in optimising the return on investment,” says Sandy Fairley, Flexenergy Sales Director. FLEXALEN HT delivers excellent insulation values, with heat conductivity of only 0.040 W/(m.K) at 40°C. It can be laid easily in places that are difficult to access and is supplied in DN16, 20 and 25mm diameter pipes with customised coil lengths up to 500m. ENQUIRY-Card 560

Chris Goggin of Rinnai UK, manufacturer of market leading Infinity HE gas fired continuous flow water heaters, believes there is a responsibility for the industry to monitor and control energy usage but warns that prevaricating until the perfect solution is developed is not helping to push things forward.

“It is time to focus on what we can do to decarbonise the UK building stock to support energy and emission target reductions by using the best available technologies today and not waiting for a ‘magic box’ solution tomorrow.” He says there is no one, single method to achieve energy efficiencies and advocates using a mix of existing renewables and traditional technologies tied in with smart control systems as the practical way forward to a greener future. He urges the industry to act now considering multiple solutions and not one size fits all. “Experts have warned that energy blackouts are forecast by 2017, so a smart and well engineered method of dealing with the increasing pressures on the Energy Network without over engineering and over pricing is to find ways of using current renewables technology, be it solar thermal, solar PV

or heat pump, in a practical manner maximised by traditional fuel sources” says Goggin. Rinnai award winning renewables water heating solutions are designed to offer a perfect blend of eco-friendly technologies, guaranteed to provide a constant flow of hot water, no matter how many outlets are in use at the same time. The HE Rinnai condensing continuous flow water heater can be utilised as a secondary heat source for a solar or ASHP-boosted hot water delivery system and is one of the most energy efficient. Smart internal and external controls ensures that the Rinnai system is only using the optimum amount of gas, harnessing and maximising renewable gains and not acting as a constant or wasteful secondary heat source. For all-year round hot water, Rinnai Infinity HDC1500 and HDC 1200 gas fired condensing continuous flow water heaters are renewables-ready or easily ‘retrofitable’ with current renewable technology. Rinnai’s Infinity condensing products incorporate two heat exchangers to achieve optimum water heating generated from every cubic metre of Natural Gas or LPG, producing efficiencies of 95-97 per cent, easily surpassing the 90-92 per cent thermal efficiency thresholds set by the new legislation in the new build arena. They are extremely low NoX, less than 50mg, with hot water supply volumes of up to

740 litres per hour at 50° Delta from a single appliance. The addition of smart controls to the commercial condensing range cuts emissions further and aid frugality in gas consumption. Rinnai’s award-winning renewable water heating solutions are designed to offer a perfect blend of eco-friendly technologies, guaranteed to provide a constant flow of hot water 365 days of the year.

‘Aluprof Transforms the Soapworks’

The Ivy Wharf Development in Salford is one of Manchester’s most recent redevelopment projects. Utilising the former Colgate Palmolive factory buildings, the new development is of mixed use which includes offices, supported by ancillary consumer focused space on the ground floor. Using the existing external frame concrete structure, new aluminium curtain wall screens constructed from Aluprof’s MB-SR50N system, were used to create a continuous glazed and aluminium panelled facade behind the concrete columns. On the existing four storey block a further storey has been added which perfectly follows the lines of the curtain wall below, giving the impression that the

concrete frame surrounds an existing aluminium glazed structure. The Aluprof aluminium systems were installed by Commercial Systems International Ltd who have been successfully installing glazing and cladding systems for over 20 years. Based in Humberside the company has developed a reputation for innovative design and a positive, proactive approach to problem solving. The Soapworks accommodation provides a total of 40,000m2 of grade A office space with units starting at 200m2. The site also has planning permission for a further 200-bed hotel, a retail area and residential, as well as further office space. Designed by Architects shedkm and constructed by Galliford Try, the building is already being occupied by local businesses. A sustainable and low carbon redevelopment, the project has been awarded a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. The office accommodation, when completed, was the largest speculative office scheme to be completed outside of London. With the UK head office and

distribution base in Altrincham, Cheshire, Aluprof systems are specified on a wide range of residential and commercial projects across the UK. Systems are designed, fabricated and installed by selected, specially trained companies, to ensure each fabricated product meets Aluprof’s exacting standards. Further information is available on the company’s website at and specialist advice is available from Aluprof on 0161 941 4005. ENQUIRY-Card 568

REHAU’s highly efficient, flush fitting Nordic Design Plus window system is designed for two quite distinct market sectors – contemporary new build and traditional timber replacement.

Rehau Nordic Design Plus replicates timber in renovated cottage

In the contemporary sector it has already been specified and installed in projects like Crest Nicholson’s Centenary Quay development in Southampton; and increasingly it is also being chosen by owners of cottages and stone built properties who want an authentic looking replacement for timber. It proved the perfect choice recently for a homeowner in Gloucestershire, who was renovating his poorly insulated cottage by adding an innovative brick faced slip system to the exterior. With a double brick build and no cavity wall, the cottage was difficult and expensive to heat, so the solution devised was to

insulate it on the outside with a 150mm layer of high performance insulation and then face the whole of the front of the building with a slip system which gives the appearance of a traditional brick build. The homeowner wanted to replace the single glazed timber windows which were in place originally with thermally efficient, low maintenance alternatives and the REHAU Nordic Design Plus system with its 120mm depth frame and its flush fitting 67mm sash proved the perfect choice. In the single storey cottage, seven windows have been installed, all of which are triple glazed with U-Values of less than 1.0 W/m2K. They have the

appearance of a solid timber window, complete with traditional timber detailing on the inside, but are manufactured using REHAU’s self-reinforced RAU-FIPRO® fibre composite material with a coextruded PVC outer layer which means they have better strength, torsional stiffness and thermal properties. The homeowner is delighted with the finished project and, as a result of the thermal improvements, is already reporting energy savings of around 12%.

Steel windows provide subtle solution for Cotswold cottage

Vicaima make it snappy with new doors App

Set in a picturesque Cotswold village, the Victorian cottage Glen and Rachel Wardrop had bought needed extensive renovation inside and out. When it came to the windows, the couple turned to Steel Window Association member, the Cotswold Casement Company, to manufacture and install replacements that would be in keeping with the stone building. The previous single glazed metal windows had probably been installed in the 1980s and were poorly maintained while the sub-frames were rotten. Glen initially considered wooden windows but, when he saw the size of the profiles, he felt they were too bulky for the relatively narrow window openings and would have spoilt the look of the cottage while also reducing the daylight inside.

Yeoman Rainguard have launched their new SL Aluminium Rainwater Systems to the builders merchants and construction markets. Manufactured from 2mm thick Aluminium the new SL gutters and downpipes offer a wealth of advantages to the builder including longevity, ease of fitting and style. “We have developed the new SL Aluminium range with contractors upper most in mind” explained Rainguard Director, Phil Christopher “When on site a quick and easy no fuss installation of a rainwater system is definitely a plus. Our push fix jointing system which requires absolutely no mechanical fixings will noticeably speed up the installation process.”

Finished in a polyester powder coating, Yeoman Rainguard’s SL Aluminium system is a long lasting and robust which once installed will not require any repair, replacement, repainting or maintenance. This all adds up to being the perfect choice for gutters and downpipes when sustainability and the future lifecycle of a building is being considered. Environmental issues are becoming a larger concern when constructing buildings. Aluminium is 95% recyclable and with it’s robust, long life properties minimising the need for replacement the SL Aluminium range becomes an ecologically sound rainwater solution. As well as offering advantages to the designers and constructors of a building the SL system can offer a very important extra to the buildings permanent occupants – that of adding a

stylish finishing touch to the exterior. SL’s Aluminium gutters and downpipes are not susceptible to colour bleaching from the sun – as are some less robust plastic systems. Neither is the paint finish going to peel or the aluminium beneath rust away ensuring that the exterior of a new building will still be looking pristine and like new for many years to come. “We hope that the construction industry find our new SL Aluminium rainwater system an asset to their building requirements knowing that they can rely on our help and expertise whatever the project along with the knowledge that the new range is available ex-stock from our warehouse in Leeds.” Concluded Phil Christopher.

MS Polymers are now being used more in the UK – present in both sealants and adhesive formulations. And due to its highly elastic, high strength nature, architects are recommending its use on a more regular basis, mainly because of its performance, aesthetic appeal and ability to excel where, elastic construction joints are required.

Apply Once – Job Done with Caulk Once and Fill Once Caulk Once and Fill Once are the latest products to take centre stage at Everbuild Building Products. Created using the very latest technology, the Caulk Once and Fill Once double act set a new standard in decorating fillers. Caulk Once is a premium quality acrylic caulk which has been formulated to outperform all other conventional decorating caulks using an advanced high quality polymer. Offering superior adhesion, low shrink and outstanding flexibility, Caulk Once is a durable, longer lasting product that will cope with joint movement over time, so you won’t find yourself replacing it after only a few years. Fill Once is a ready mixed filler created with Expanded Micro-Sphere Technology (EMT) making it the perfect product to use for filling any sized hole in just one application. Fill Once gives an ultra-smooth, fine finish with no shrinkage, fills up to 75mm in one go and will set rock hard giving it the ability to support nails or screws. Caulk Once is packaged in high impact display boxes and is available in White and Brown C3 cartridges. A C4 size is

also available in White only. Fill Once is available in 325ml and 650ml tubs, as well as in a handy starter pack. The starter pack contains 8 x 325ml tubs and 4 x 650ml tubs and is packaged in an attractive display box. Everbuild really do believe that users will appreciate the true quality of this double act; Caulk Once and Fill Once, two decorating products formulated for superior application and performance, no excessive time spent re-doing jobs or filling gaps and holes, so as the line goes APPLY ONCE – JOB DONE!
