The Slimline Monaco from Gazco’s latest collection has been designed with a modern look and innovative features, which makes for an easy fit within most households. The Slimline Monaco is perfect for homes that don’t have a chimney or for those looking not to spend time and effort trying to get building work scheduled in.

concrete surround, which means it can be easily installed against a wall. This eliminates any additional building work needed to create space in the cavity wall for a standard inset fire making for a much simpler way of having a heating appliance your home. With it’s modular design it is a versatile fire that can be customised to suit your taste and style and can be kept it the in the textured concrete grey finish, or painted with water based paints to suit the look and feel of the rest of the house. It can be installed with a range of different configurations, including having a recessed storage plinth where you can store cut logs to give a woodburning fire feel. The survey of 860 trade professionals, conducted ahead of Fire Door Safety Week (26-2 October 2016), revealed that over the past few years 93% of tradespeople have spotted a fire door being propped open illegally with a door stop when they have been working on a commercial or public building. Commercial buildings containing small or medium sized businesses are the worst offenders with 72% likely to prop doors open illegally, followed by commercial buildings housing large businesses (64%) and public buildings (42%). Tradespeople are also more likely to witness this offence in older, traditional buildings (56%) than in new builds (15%).

The study, which was carried out by IronmongeryDirect, a leading supplier of ironmongery products, also found that 74% of tradespeople have come across a fire door that was blocked or obstructed and 58% have spotted accessibility issues with fire doors in commercial or public buildings. When respondents were asked to reveal the most common faults they found when checking or maintaining fire doors, 73% said the biggest problem was that many did not have intumescent seals, which are vital for the fire door’s performance.

Preparing buildings for winter Chris Budd, Head of UK Sales at Watco, the UK’s leading manufacturer of industrial strength flooring products, gives tips and advice on jobs to be done now. 1 – Waterproofing Winter weather in the UK usually means rain, rain and more rain! So it is really important that buildings are prepared and damp proofed as soon as possible, both inside and out. Damp can be an expensive and dangerous problem - it can affect plaster, rendering and cause timber decay, and excess moisture may well cause damage to office equipment, furniture and paperwork. In many industries where hygiene is imperative, it is particularly important that mould or mildew is not able to develop. Applying a flexible waterproof coating bridges gaps and cracks in walls and allows the substrate to breathe. A damp proof paint, or anti mould paint helps resist mould growth, and is particularly useful in basements or any area with a damp problem. 2 – Prevent Slips and Trips Slips, trips and falls at work are a serious issue, HSE reported that they account for over a third of employee injuries, and make up more than half of all reported major/specified injuries. With wet weather, leaves, and icy conditions becoming a hazard outdoors anti-slip flooring is a necessity. Anti-slip coatings, indestructible GRP products and Anti Slip Tapes can help prevent these accidents. For hazardous areas heavy duty anti slip epoxy resin floor paint is designed to provide excellent slip resistance and minimise the risk of accidents. Matting is also a great way to prevent slips, and can be used as a temporary or permanent measure, especially for use on roofs. Asphalt and tarmac is an increased risk in winter because ice tends to be invisible on the dark surface. One preventative measure is adding Anti Slip Traffic Paint . GRP(glass-reinforced plastic) is an excellent winter safety product, available in many different styles, i.e. sheets, treads, and step covers, and

is great for external and internal applications. It can be installed at any temperature! 3 - General Roof Cleaning and Maintenance Guidelines Damaged, tired, and worn out roofs can cause a lot of problems. Roof leaks can be incredibly costly in the long term if not repaired, causing a range of problems including mould, damp, and plaster damage. Regular checks should be made to keep track of the state of the roof and in particular: • Beware of debris. Tree limbs, built-up leaves, and twigs can cause serious problems for a roof. They can block drains, resulting in ponding water on the roof resulting in leaks and costly repairs. Keep nearby trees trimmed as shade can boost the growth of moss and algae, which bring their own set of concerns, such as erosion of asphalt roofing materials. • Test your drains and gutters at regular intervals. Any missed debris can be washed down drains causing a clog. Pour water down the drain and make sure it flushes out properly. • Watch out for blisters on your roof surface. These are signs that it might be time to replace a roof sealant. • When it is time for a new roof coating, do a thorough cleaning first. A Roof Cleaner is an excellent option to apply before power washing a roof. They can lift dirt and grease from the roof’s surface, thereby removing contaminants that can cause discolouring or reduce the adhesive properties of the coating. After power washing, simply rinse with clean water. • Check all seals and edges, and use an industrial caulk gun to touch up any places where the caulking might be coming loose. • For a long lasting solution a fibre reinforced rubber and bitumen roof coating will prolong the life of a roof by weathering the elements as well as bridging cracks.  Fix a leaking roof using repair mortar, which can be trowellable, flexible and waterproof, ideal when working on flat roofs, slate roofs and even gutter repair.

Better Protection of Cavity Wall Window & Door Openings Incorporating a level of protection that works regardless of the site exposure categorisation makes sense. Conventional roll DPC is commonly used to provide protection against wet ingress over window and door openings in cavity walls. The downside is roll DPC cut on site can end up being inconsistent in shape, inconsistent in length and there can be difficulty addressing all the NHBC / LABC recommendations. A solution is to use a preformed Cavitray. When horizontal preformed Type C Cavitrays are used with lintels, one eliminates the variances that occur with roll DPC cut and shaped on site. Preformed Type C Cavitrays are readyshaped to harmonize with the window head construction / lintel choice, so the build detail is always correct and always consistent. Type C Cavitrays are also selfsupporting which means they hold to profile and do not require building into the inner skin. Both skins remain independent of each other Importantly, Type C Cavitrays have extended ends that project each side of

the wall opening by 300mm. These extended ends serve two purposes: Firstly they provide adequate shelter of whatever reveal closing method is deployed and secondly the 300mm projection ensures a brick perp joint beyond the opening is always located to accommodate the stopend in the optimum position. So when lintels have only 150mm bearings (such as those within the 900 to 1600mm length range), the 300mm extension ensures the stopend can still be naturally accommodated in the optimum position. (Despite the first available perp occurring 75mm beyond the lintel end in 50% of instances, when standard 225mm bricks are used). Finally, preformed Type C Cavitrays can be supplied with a drip lip moulded to the tray front in a position to coincide with the top of the window or door frame. Thus the recommendation within NHBC 6.1D6b to provide a lip at this point is fulfilled automatically. Cavitray scheduling is straightforward –

Efficient protection and drainage for basements and flat roofs is offered by the high density polyethylene Terraxx range from Delta Membrane Systems, which is featured in a brochure from the company. The brochure shows how the two-ply sheet is a highly efficient protection and drainage system, and offers an ‘allround’ solution for horizontal and vertical applications on compressionresistant substrates. With its fused-on polypropylene geotextile and integrated self-sealing edge, the product offers the functions of a protection, filtration and seepage layer making it particularly suitable for herbaceous roofs – intensively planted roofs which, being thickly covered with soil, do not need an extra water reservoir, but do need high drainage capacity.

Plug that gap with TP652 Compriband Trio Plus TP652 Compriband Trio Plus sealing tape, from Tremco, is designed to meet the onerous demands of even the Passive House standard in new-build constructions, as well as outperforming other products in refurbishment projects.

DfT sustainability committee misses opportunity

Instarmac Products at the Touch of a Button

The Environmental Audit Committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new report on, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sustainability in the Department for Transport,â&#x20AC;? is seriously flawed, according to Fuel Card Services. Steve Clarke, group marketing manager, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The select committee made some good long-term suggestions, but has missed an opportunity. It could have recommended action that would bring immediate benefits for fleet sustainability. In particular, it could have urged the introduction of measures compelling commercial road users to monitor and record fleet emissions.â&#x20AC;? The committee offered conclusions and recommendations in the areas of government policy and policy making, governance and operations. Steve Clarke said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The focus on ultra-low emission vehicles ignores the reality of current technology, cost and infrastructure. Government should promote ULEVs, but recognising that widespread adoption remains a longterm prospectâ&#x20AC;?.

Look closer at smarter control of fuel costs Taking a closer look at fuel cards should reveal that they have much more to offer fleet managers than savings on diesel and petrol. The whole point of finding the right fuel card, however, is to save money and time. No other way of buying fuel offers the advantages of fuel cards. With commercial rate fuel cards, you always know in advance exactly how much your fuel will cost, regardless of where a driver fills up, and the price is typically up to 4p per litre less than the national average pump price. Your fixed price applies at thousands of filling stations nationwide, from city centres to rural back roads. It even applies to motorway service stations, where the saving is up to 10p per litre. You refuel now and pay later, with the interval between refuelling and being invoiced meaning anywhere up to two weeks of interest-free credit. You only pay for the fuel, with no transaction charges or other hidden extras. On top of the cost savings, you save hours of administration time, with paperwork being eliminated. ENQUIRY-Card 107

Ejecting the core problem for hole saw operators ~ Starrett launches Core Ejector tool ~

Following extensive product testing at its Scottish Borders manufacturing facility, tool and hole saw specialist Starrett, has launched its new Core Ejector tool. The two-part instrument addresses a common problem for contractors by removing the cut away disc of material that would usually remain inside the hole saw after it has completed the cut. Hole saw operators will be familiar with the problem of extracting the material that often becomes jammed inside the hole saw after cutting. The classic, method of removing the trapped material with a drift or screwdriver may be effective, but there is an obvious health and safety risk to the operator. One slip can spell disaster as the teeth of the hole saw are extremely sharp, and the elevated temperature of the saw if it has been recently used poses another threat of injury. Starrett’s Core Ejector is designed to alleviate this risk and improve health and safety for the operator. The spring-based Core Ejector, which can easily be installed onto a hole saw by twisting the spring over the pilot drill, comprises a precision tapered spring and an aluminium pressure plate. As the saw cuts into the material, the pressure plate compresses the spring and when the saw breaks through to complete a cut, the spring will act on the

pressure and push the core out of the saw before it becomes trapped. “The Core Ejector tool has been designed with ease of use in mind,” explained John Cove, marketing manager at Starrett. “The low cost tool is available in a range of sizes for flexibility and it functions effectively on ferrous and non-ferrous sheet metal, sheet glass reinforced plastic (GRP) and composite materials, as well as ceramics and tiles when fitted to diamond hole saws. “It is currently available in six sizes and covers a range of hole saw diameters. The range begins with the small KA8-1 core ejector for saws between 20 and 24mm in diameter and increases to the largest KA8-6 saws, which reach between 133 and 210mm in diameter.” Starrett has been serving the industrial, professional and consumer tooling industries for more than 130 years, offering a huge range of products to help contractors complete jobs effectively and efficiently. The company also offers an extensive range catering to more industrial sectors.

FEIN DUSTS OFF POWERFUL NEW EXTRACTOR RANGE Power tool expert FEIN has added two new premium class models, including M Class, to its range of dust extractors.

Solid Gear Athletic Safety Trainers from Hultafors

FEIN’s family of extractors is expanding with the addition of two new premium class, wet and dry extractors. Both are powerful and for the first time are equipped with automatic filter cleaning. The Dustex 35 MX AC is an M Class approved extractor (WEL > 0.1 mg/m 3) whilst the FEIN Dustex 35 LX AC is rated for L-classification extraction (WEL > 1.0 mg/m 3). Both machines come with a large number of special equipment features and extensive accessories making the tools suitable for multiple professional tasks on site or in the workshop. Safety extractors for tradespeople are split into dust classes: L (Low), M (Medium) and H (High) depending on the risks associated with the dusts involved. Some wood dusts (such as beech and ash) and mineral dusts containing quartz fall under the M class. Since recognizing substances can be difficult, a safety extractor is advised on most sites. The launch is also the first time FEIN has equipped its extractors with a fully automatic filter cleaning system. The innovative new AutoClean technology reverses the airflow every 15 seconds, blowing away any fine dust that may have settled in the filter back into the secondary deposable bag. Fitting the extractors with AutoClean allows for a consistently high suction force, meaning even large volumes of hazardous dust can be removed. Both dust extractors will work across wet and dry applications, reliably absorbing fine dusts and liquids. This Auto clean system also extends the filter’s life considerably, meaning the machine can work continuously and uninterrupted for much longer because of less frequent filter changes. This approach is far more effective than the traditional

Felmoor Park receives Premium Protection from Remmers

With flat matt finishes predicted to be a leading style trend, chalk paint is a great sales option both short term and for the coming season. Until now, offering the velvety smooth, chalky finish could mean limitations in terms of colour matching as even the best ranges have a limit to the colours available, but with the latest Polyvine chalk paint maker launch, the whole market has changed for the better. The new and unique chalk paint maker product from specialist paint and varnish manufacturer, Polyvine can be mixed with any colour of standard matt emulsion to produce a one off chalk paint in any choice of colour. Easy for the consumer to produce at home – or for in store preparation - all the retailer has to do is supply a good colour range of standard matt emulsion alongside the new Polyvine chalk paint

HydrolocTM technology makes decorating easier with Dunlop Pro Décor Ever wondered what makes Dunlop Pro Décor fillers and smoothers stand out from the crowd? Dunlop Pro Décor, unlike other brands, utilises ground-breaking HydrolocTM technology to help decorators achieve a superior finish in a faster time than ever before. Unique because the mix water is used as part of a chemical reaction that dries the filler, HydrolocTM is unlike other products that dry via water evaporation. This means the filler dries evenly throughout, regardless of thickness, within at least 24 hours. In fact some products, such as Dunlop Rapid Repair Mortar with HydrolocTM and Rapid Rescue Repair Filler with HydrolocTM are dry, hard and paintable/drillable in only 90 minutes!

Because the reaction occurs throughout the filler, its thickness plays no pivotal role in the waiting time. The drying process is not dependent on environmental factors either, such as temperature or humidity, making drying times more consistent.   Debi Boulton, Sales and Marketing Manager at Dunlop, said: “Dunlop’s mission has always been to provide painters and decorators, builders and general tradespeople with industry-leading, problem-solving products. “HydrolocTM technology, found in our Pro Décor range of fillers and smoothers, is a better alternative to other, cheaper products because there is no shrinkage from mass loss caused by water evaporation. This saves the user time and money as no re-filling is required.” HydrolocTM features in half of Dunlop’s Pro Décor range including Deep Filling Compound, High Bond Renovation Filler, Fibre Reinforced Smoothing & Filling Compound, Rapid Repair Mortar and Rapid Rescue Repair Filler.

Kee Klamp® expands its range of Tubular fittings

Trade roofline specialist Summit has introduced four more colours into its range of 405mm wide, double ended capping boards. The 405mm wide board, known as a “double ended cover board”, is 9mm thick. With the introduction of the new colours, Cream, White, Anthracite Grey and Irish Oak, it is now available in the full range of eight Summit colourways, all in a range of widths from 150mm to 405mm. The 405mm board is specifically designed for deeper roofline applications, typically for the gable side of the box end, where a smooth, onepiece unit can be formed without the unsightly joints usually required when two boards are fitted together. Because of its superior durability and maintenance-free characteristics, Cellular PVC is widely used as a capping board for timber fascia boards that are still sound.

Kee Safety, a leading global supplier of safety railing systems, has expanded its Kee Klamp® range with the introduction of 12 new types of tubular fittings. Designed for installation on steeper gradients, the new slope fittings offer builders and specifiers an aesthetically pleasing option. The latest addition to the Kee Klamp® portfolio is an extension to the current range of slope fittings. The new components have been designed to enhance the building of guardrail along staircases and ramps, particularly when the slope is greater than 30 degrees. The new range introduces single fittings to cater for situations where currently a combination of fittings is required. Not only does this improve the aesthetics of the finished guardrail but it also allows for a quicker and easier installation. ENQUIRY-Card 128 ENQUIRY-Card 129

Raising the Roof As we all know, the performance of even high quality building products can be let d practice. Here we take a look at Roofline Systems and get the low-down from one good and what’s bad in this important area of construction.

Fascia Joint with pins and silicone

Neat Box End with minimal joints, no pins or silicone

Dave Osborne has been Technical Services Manager at Swish Building Products – the people that make PVC cladding, fascia and soffit boards, rainwater systems and all the sundry fixtures and fittings for more years than he cares to remember.

polo shirt with his business logo across his chest and back stepped into view. He looked a bit sheepish, as he had every reason to. I was good and ready for a showdown, but he took the wind out of my sails by holding out his hand, apologising sincerely for putting me and everyone else to a lot of trouble and asking if I could help him sort it out.

When it comes to roofline installations, both domestic and commercial, good and bad, he’s seen it all. From his long experience, Dave sets out some pointers to ensure best use of materials and a good installation every time and tells us about some of his installation hates!

So the story goes that he’d previously done some work with a mate, thought he’d got a handle on it, stuck fliers through some doors, fluked this job on his first day out and bitten off more than he could chew. I told him what to do, he listened, and now I’m happy to say he’s earning good money and is a great fitter.

A couple of years ago I was asked to visit the beautiful home of a retired couple to sort out a dispute with their installer. As I approached the house and looked up, I got that sinking feeling. Sure enough, here was the roofline from hell, pushing all my pet hate buttons. There was silicone everywhere, nail heads littered the joints and corners, the fascia had started to bow, there was no evidence of ventilation; and I was going to have to sort it out for the nice lady waving at me from the doorstep.

So over the years I’ve seen a lot of time and money thrown down the drain, not just by shoddy installers but also by well-meaning and sincere guys who haven’t quite understood the problems involved in the job they’re working on.

Now I bet, just as I was, you’re thinking the worst about the idiot who stuck that lot up. He’d probably high-tailed it with the nice lady’s money ready to fleece some other poor punter, just like the dodgy tradesmen you see in “Cowboy Builders” on TV. So imagine my surprise when a young lad in a smart

PVC is a great material. It cuts like timber, using the same tools and it accepts nails and screws in the same way with just as much security. It also knocks timber for six with regard to maintenance requirement – because basically there is none – and so its expected lifespan is far greater than timber, and its lifetime cost is much lower. Once you understand a couple of important things about PVC the rest starts to slot into place. The facts are that PVC profiles are more compliant (more bendy) than timber, and they have slightly greater linear co-

efficient of expansion (they expand and contract a bit more). In an article like this I can’t give you all the little details you may need but you won’t go far wrong if you remember this: Roofline Get your substrate straight, level and true to ensure the PVC boards you’re fixing on to it will all line up. Use string lines that are nice and taught to guide you in fixing hangers to the rafters to pick up your fascia and soffit. Nail or screw down your boards with two fixings at each fixing centre; maximum 600mm centres for white and 400mm for colours and foils. This will make sure any expansion is contained in local sections and so kept to a minimum, Allow the recommended expansion gaps between the ends of boards, 8mm between two 5m boards, so that they don’t push against each other in hot weather. Use a deeper board for box end fabrication as this minimises the number of joints you have to make and looks cleaner. Finally, in the case of a roofline installation, observe the Building Regs. requirements for ventilation of the roof void. This last one has little to do with expansion or contraction of the roofline boards, I throw it in because it’s the only Regs requirement for roofline and it’s quite often ignored.

Fascia Joint with pins and silicone

Cladding • White boards fix every 600mm max. • Colour and foil boards fix every 400mm max. • Make sure you allow heat to escape from behind cladding boards, with a continuous, vertical ventilation gap behind the profile. The gap is created by the battens on which the board is mounted. • For white cladding - the ventilation gap behind the boards must be 25mm min. • For coloured or foiled cladding - the ventilation gap must be 50mm min. • Where the board terminates at a corner or at the edge of a cladding area ensure the board end is fixed. This is really important with cladding because of the larger exposed surface area involved. And now I’m going to throw in my two pet hates; 1) silicone being sprayed around like crazy-foam 2) pins or super glue used to externally secure joints and corners. Silicone looks great on the day of installation but soon picks up dirt and rapidly exposes shoddy workmanship. I know of some installers who refuse to use it, which is very laudable but a bit extreme in my opinion. However, if you set out to do the job without silicone you’ll find that it’s a sharper, cleaner installation and what silicone you do use will be minimal. Pinning or gluing joints is poor practice because you’re positively fixing a cover across an expansion gap. Two

things happen as a result: firstly, the trim can be split by the movement of the board ends and secondly, pins warp the surface of the trim, look ugly and highlight the location of a unit that is designed to blend into the boards. Fascia joints should be only be pinned or glued into the butt end of one board (i.e. secretly fixed) with the other side free floating to take up the expansion gap. Alternatively face fix your joints and corners with good quality silicone sealant, as once cured the silicone provides an elastic seal. I may be preaching to the converted here but I wouldn’t mention all the above if they didn’t cause installers, their customers and ultimately yours truly significant distress on a regular basis. So if you’re uncertain about any part of an installation, whether you’re sticking 5m of fascia on an extension or doing a full makeover of a five bed detached, the word is – pick up the ‘phone and ask; it may save you a lot of time and money.

Hitachi showcases new heat pump product line-up at HVAC2016 Hitachi’s expanded Yutaki air source heat pump product range is one of the widest on the market and is being showcased at HVAC 2016 (part of UK Construction Week) at the NEC from 18th-20th October on stand H4/601. "As a relatively new player in the UK air source heat pumps market, we're excited to be involved in the HVAC 2016 show which brings together thousands of industry professionals in one central venue. We'll be showcasing our full Yutaki range of products and the long-term benefits of heat pumps to an audience who we believe will be key in getting renewable energy sources out into the wider market," commented Andy Hooper, UK

Heating Manager, Johnson Controls – Hitachi Air Conditioning Solutions. Some of the best seasonal performance figures Completely redesigned to meet the needs of specifiers, installers and homeowners - and utilising common components, common outdoor units and simplified design to benefit both end users and installers - the extended Yutaki product line-up includes a total of 70 new models which are more compact for small installation spaces and are lighter weight for easier handling. The introduction of common components and controllers, streamlines product training requirements, reduces the need for carrying multiple spares, and lowers installation and maintenance time. Performances have also been improved, with higher COPs, better seasonal efficiencies and higher capacities. All Yutaki models also be supplied with a new Cooling Kit accessory to enable both heating and cooling modes. Four new models The Yutaki range comprises four models,

Evomax 150 packs power into a small package

Altecnic aims to end expansion vessels guesswork

When a high output wall hung condensing boiler is needed for a commercial installation, look no further than Evomax 150 from Ideal Commercial Boilers. Offering a condensing output of 158kW, Evomax 150 is amongst the most powerful wall hung boilers available today. It succeeds in combining this power with an impressive seasonal efficiency of 96.7% and a low NOx measurement of just 38.1 mg/kWh, offering installers and specifiers a boiler that delivers on a number of fronts, including already being compliant with Ecodesign (ErP) 2018. If more power is required, up to 4 Evomax 150s can be installed in a cascade (632kW condensing). Larger bespoke cascade systems are available upon request. For added peace of mind, and proof of its reliability, Evomax 150 comes with a five year warranty as standard*.

A significant proportion of installers are risking compromising the performance and reliability of central heating systems by relying on guesswork when choosing an essential component. A recent survey by leading plumbing products company Altecnic found that nearly two-thirds of installers made no thorough calculations before installing an expansion vessel. As a result, they may be compromising the efficiency and reliability of the system they are installing. Chris Brass, Technical Manager at Altecnic, explained: "Most installers recognise the importance of an expansion vessel to prevent damage when water in a heating system expands, but we were surprised at how many did not pay enough attention to sizing.

New heating controls from ESi ESi is one of the fastest growing designers and manufacturers of heating controls in the UK. It has developed a range of energy saving, innovative heating controls for residential and light commercial applications. Most homes in the UK still tend to have a single heating zone – and the only control in the rooms is by thermostatic radiator valves. When a new centralheating system is installed, it's possible to fit a full zone control that has different pipe loops and separate thermostats for two or more areas. This can offer significant energy savings. ESi offers a range of zone valves which are a direct replacement for existing valves if they fail. These are very quiet in operation and now come with an industry leading five-year warranty. They are easy fit components, with a simple clip on/off detachable actuator head with an option of a ‘plug and play’ cable. ENQUIRY-Card 134

Ideal Commercial Boilers work out at Lymington Health & Safety Four Ideal Commercial Evomax 100 boilers with frame and header kits have been installed as part of an extensive retrofit at the Lymington Health & Leisure centre in Lymington, Hampshire. The new Evomax boilers, which were specified by loyal customer New Forest District Council, were installed in the boiler room to supplement two older, standard efficiency boilers which were deemed to be inefficient and did not modulate, meaning output was all or nothing when fired. New Forest District Council have implemented a programme of refurbishments across numerous council sites involving Evomax and other Ideal Commercial boilers. The council has found the combination of ease of installation and high efficiency readings to be very impressive, along with an attractive appearance. ENQUIRY-Card 135

RINNAI ONLINE & IN TOUCH WITH CUSTOMERS Chris Goggin, Associate Director of continuous flow water heater manufacturer Rinnai, explains how important the company’s digitalisation strategy is to its customers.

We are living in a fast changing world – one that is increasingly being driven by fingertip operation on a computer, Smartphone, tablet – or even watch nowadays. ‘Digitalisation’ is the new buzzword but don’t think this is a fad – it is here to stay.

There are two factors that will affect global

business – the first is digitalisation – which is the integration of digital technologies into every part of everyday life. Any business that does not embrace the opportunities of digitalisation and chooses to remain in a state of inertia will definitely be left behind.

You only have to look at the rise and rise of shopping on line with information available on multiple devices. This brings me to the second challenge, which is globalisation. As just about everything is now available digitally, companies like Rinnai, in my opinion, aren’t just compared to their direct competitors any more, they are compared to everyone. Rinnai is now making all its contact points, information and support fully digitalised and accessible on any device on the go. We are also tailoring this information so that it is personalised to target customers geographically initially and then becoming more sophisticated as we go ahead. But just why would Rinnai’s increased level of digitalisation be important to our customers?

36-37d.qxp_Layout 1 26/09/2016 12:18 Page 2

It is important to the market as it demonstrates several aspects very clearly. First, we are making it easier for customers to access all data easily without unnecessary complications. Second, it gives them the platform to engage with us any time of day and anywhere. Our aim is to integrate Rinnai into every day life for the customer, installer, consultants and even end user so they have a mindset of ‘think water heater, think Rinnai’. By personalising the information to them, it then becomes more and more relevant to their unique needs. The intelligent application of digitalisation is already proving to be a powerful tool, directly beneficial to the industry as potential and existing customers now have a wide array of access to information and product that can only improve their businesses and their customers’ businesses. It is to everybody’s advantage that we

encourage them to engage digitally. For specifiers and consultants who need reliable products and information, engaging with a fully digitalised Rinnai and the integrated BIM shelf and associated sales support as a core competency can deliver this without question. And for end users, too, there is accessibility leading to peace of mind. In simple terms, Rinnai UK’s strategy towards digitalisation is to ensure the customer is central to our thinking and giving them complete control and accessibility over content is key. We are all competing in the new slightly scary globalised world so offering peace of mind in this manner is extremely important. Twitter, and other social media platforms, are also a key area for engagement. Social media enables Rinnai to engage with emergent groups (people who go on line to talk about stuff they have in common, usually to criticise it!) while

enhancing and protecting our reputation. We also have a bit of fun, too. Let’s face it our industry can be far too stuffy and to its own detriment. Remember, people buy from people and companies they like and we believe it is important to link quality, innovation and customer delight to our brand. We know our strategy is working because we are seeing more and more hits on the Rinnai website. Hits have increased 100% since launch and Rinnai is more and more becoming instantly recognised as a quality brand. For more information on the RINNAI product range visit ENQUIRY-Card 546

Underfloor Heating by Darren Trivett, Omnie’s Managing Director The commonest forms of underfloor heating (UFH) all involve circulating water through highperformance plastic pipe, which has been set within the structure of the floor. This water can be heated efficiently by a conventional gas or oil boiler or by solar thermal panels, or it can be heated (or cooled) very efficiently using a heat pump. (If you circulate cold water through an underfloor heating system during the summer, you can create a comfort-cooling system). A heat pump can use electricity 3 to 4 times more efficiently than electric underfloor heating, and electric underfloor heating can never provide cooling. UFH has become the preferred form of heating throughout the residential sector - from top-end through self-build to local authority and housing associations. It is also now commonly specified for schools and medical facilities, for offices, factories, boats and even zoos. There are three ways in which heat can be transferred into a room – conduction, convection and radiation. UFH mostly uses radiation and this is the most natural and comfortable form of heating – think of sun-bathing. We like radiant energy. UFH is safe because there are no hot surfaces, it is unobtrusive, more hygienic and more energy-efficient. Radiators, by comparison, mostly use convection to heat a room. They heat the air, which becomes buoyant. This rises to the ceiling and travels across the ceiling to the far side of the room. As it cools, the heated air drops and then returns across the floor to the radiators to be re-heated. This convection cycle, as we call it, inevitably puts the hottest air in the room at ceiling level and the floor is always the coldest part of the room. With UFH, the temperature in the room is very even and the floor is the warmest part. With UFH, the floor surface is made about as warm as the palm of your hand (25-27OC). The right form of UFH can achieve this surface temperature using water which is much cooler than even over-sized radiators require and, if your heating system can be effective

while using cooler water, then not only is this more energy-efficient but it also opens up the prospect of being able to obtain this lower temperature water from renewable energy sources. UFH has the potential to wean a building off its dependency on continued availability/affordability of fossil-fuels. Most UFH suppliers ought to be able to supply an effective form of UFH when it is set within a screeded or concrete floor. It is just a case of installing the correct amount of plastic heating pipe over the top of the insulation before the screed or concrete is laid and then making sure the screed/concrete fully wraps around the pipe. If you pin the pipe directly to the top of the insulation, it can be damaged when the screed is transported across the top in barrows and the pipe can often be kicked loose when liquid screeds are laid over the top. Fixing clip-plates across the top of the insulation and then plugging the pipe into these protects the pipe and holds it securely in place while the screed or concrete is laid. With pipe-in-screed UFH, the primary issues for a floor layer are these: Screeds and concrete contain a lot of water when first installed and it is essential that the screed is completely dry before the floor finish is laid, otherwise this water will collect on the underside of the floor finish as condensation and lift off vinyl or soak into the underside of a timber finish or carpets. The official advice is that the UFH should NOT be used to accelerate drying and the general guidance with sand/cement screeds is to allow drying to occur naturally at the rate of 1day/mm of screed/concrete thickness up to 50mm and 2days/mm for any thickness greater than 50mm. This means you should allow 100days for a 75mm thick screed to dry naturally, and it might take longer than this during the winter. If you try to use the UFH to speed up the drying process, this has to be done very, very carefully. If done too quickly, this could stop the screed/concrete curing correctly or cause it to shrink, curl or crack. Although screed/concrete is a relatively good thermal conductor, and this can help this form of UFH to be

Toron Suspended

effective while using low water temperatures, which is good, floor structures formed from this material inevitably have high thermal mass which means a lot of thermal energy is needed to change the floor surface temperature (and consequently the heating power) and enable the UFH to respond to changes in heating demand and this is not so good. Many buildings in this country are nowadays constructed with timber floors. There are some flooring companies and even some underfloor heating suppliers who say that underfloor heating should not be used in a timber floor because timber is a poor thermal conductor. This is because they have either not used the correct form of underfloor heating in the past or simply because don’t have it in their product portfolio. The truth is that the correct form of underfloor heating can be very effective and the best way of looking after a timber floor throughout its lifetime, if you do it right. Recent changes to SAP have had the effect of giving a building a better energy rating if it has UFH in a timber floor than if it has UFH in screed/concrete. The improvement in SAP is sufficient that, if a house has timber UFH which is powered using a groundsource heat pump, a house which would otherwise be rated Level C could instead have the potential to be rated Level B. The most important reason for this is because timber floor constructions have lower thermal mass than screed/concrete and this enables timber UFH to change heating power output more quickly and with a smaller injection of thermal energy. However it is important to make sure you choose the right underfloor heating system for timber floors. Not all systems work in the same way some require very high water temperatures to be effective. So it is important to ask the supplier for independent heat output test data to make sure it will provide enough heat especially when using a heat pump.

Everything you need to know about UFH Warm water underfloor heating (UFH) is simple to install in a wide range of properties, from new build extensions to kitchen renovations. As a builder, you can fit all of the heating tube and mount the manifold quite easily, leaving a plumber to make the final connections back to the boiler. New to UFH and have a few questions? Nu-Heat, an established supplier of UFH, is here to help. Can I install UFH in an existing property? Yes. You can install warm water UFH in a wide range of projects, from new-builds to renovations, ground and first floors, and even single rooms. Our experienced team have been developing UFH systems for every type of scenario for over 20 years. How do I know if the UFH is suitable for the property? UFH is suitable for most properties, it’s just a case of choosing the right system – this is something we can help you with through your Technical Account Manager. As a general rule, all new properties should be suitable for UFH, as they will be well insulated. Older properties can also benefit from UFH too, thanks to Nu-Heat’s LoPro™ systems that offer high heat outputs without the need to dig up the existing floor.


My customer is renovating. Am I going to have to dig up the floors to install UFH? No, there’s no need to dig up the floors. Nu-Heat’s award-winning LoPro™ solutions for renovation projects are laid directly on top of an existing floor and both are also low profile – with as little as 15mm height build-up! Do I need an UFH system design? Why? This depends on the project. For a single room, such as a new extension, you can work with a OneZone™ kit that can be bought from Nu-Heat’s online shop. For larger projects where the heating system needs to be zoned, or in more complicated scenarios, a design is always recommended. By having a design drawn up, you and your customer can be completely confident that it will effectively heat the property. Is UFH easy to install? Yes, UFH is simple to install, particularly when you are working with a fully designed system as you will have detailed drawings to follow. There are just a few key

components to get familiar with and Nu-Heat provides you with illustrated installation and set-up instructions to make the whole process straightforward. We also offer a dedicated Technical Support Team to help with any questions you may have when on-site. Do I need to attend a training course? No, there is no requirement to sit a training course to install UFH. However, many suppliers – including NuHeat – do offer training courses to give you a handson look at the systems on offer and their benefits. This can be worthwhile if you are new to UFH and would like to see how each system is installed. Work with Nu-Heat If you have any more questions about installing UFH, or have a project in mind, one of Nu-Heat’s experts would be happy to help.

Installing underfloor heating need not leave you floored Andy Coy, Product Manager at Polypipe Underfloor Heating, dispels some of the more commonly held mistaken beliefs, allowing installers to sell UFH as a viable home heating solution. Technology surrounding water based underfloor heating has advanced significantly in recent years, while some of the misconceptions have not changed. With a little understanding, it isn’t difficult for plumbing and heating engineers to dispel any doubts their domestic customers may have and bag some great business opportunities in the process. As a starting point, many homeowners believe that underfloor systems heat up the floor and leave the rest of the room cold, which is not the case. Unlike traditional radiators, that need to reach temperatures of 80 degrees celsius to heat a room, underfloor heating runs at a much lower temperature, from as low as 40 degrees celsius. With warm water circulating through a network of pipes, the system ensures that a gentle, even heat is distributed throughout the space. The nature of hot air movement ensures that heat from a UFH system rises from the ground up, providing a comfortable and consistent temperature unlike radiators which project heat via a convection current, resulting in hot and cold patches within a room. The lower running temperature of water based underfloor heating also offers many cost and environmental benefits over radiators, an important consideration for the energy conscious homeowner. Operating at between 30 and 40 degrees celsius lower than an equivalent radiator system,

UFH systems require less power from the system’s boiler, and therefore have lower operating costs. With energy experts increasingly recommending underfloor heating over traditional heating options, there has never been a better time to start recommending and installing water based underfloor heating. Many people also believe that installing underfloor heating means having to dig up a property’s floor, but this is incorrect. In a new build property, a screeded floor system can be installed at the build stage whilst the floor is being constructed. In renovations, overlay systems (just 18mm in the case of Polypipe’s offering) fit over existing floors, removing the need for messy and expensive floor excavations. Perhaps the greatest benefit to homeowners is that underfloor heating offers total design freedom within the home. Radiators often act as obstacles to be overcome when planning the interior design of a home, and take up valuable space that could be put to much better use. With associations like Polypipe’s Registered Installer Network, training and support is available for all those looking to branch out and install underfloor heating, so there’s no excuse for commercially savvy installers not to get on board and add underfloor heating to their offering.

Vanguard aluminium radiators now with ceramic core

Decorating made easier

– a leak-proof electric heating solution Electrorad - one of the UK’s leading suppliers of electric heating systems has upgraded its popular oil-filled Vanguard range with new aluminium models. These incorporate a micacoated ceramic plate to help deliver improved heat retention and to provide a totally leak-proof electric heating solution. Whilst the mica coating acts as an efficient electrical insulator and thermal conductor, the thermostats have also been upgraded from relay to triac to ensure even greater accuracy of the room temperature control. Triac also guarantees a completely silent operation with no clicking sounds when switching on or off. All models remain 100% energy efficient and offer controllable warmth with nine pre-set programmes and user settable options to suit a variety of lifestyles and preferences.

Reaching that awkward space behind the radiator to decorate has long been a time consuming issue for professional trades people looking to do a perfect job. However, now there’s a solution. The Rotarad radiator valve kit enables easy access to the space behind the radiator, for decorating and for cleaning with no need to turn off the water or get the plumber in to remove the radiator. Rotarad gives quick and easy access to the space behind the radiator The Rotarad radiator valve kit is an easy retrofit for existing radiators and an obvious benefit when having new radiators installed. It enables the radiator to be lowered away from the wall to a 45 or 90 degree angle for easy and safe access with no need to disconnect the radiator from the central heating system. A clever little valve allows the radiator to move while maintaining water flow to the system and a simple finger release catch with a weight holding wire restraint enables decorator.

New AC EZ Touch controller launched by LG

Pendock produces bespoke collars for Berkeley’s vista apartment development

LG has launched a new controller for its commercial air conditioning and heating products. The new AC EZ Touch offers Smart management with a 5” colour LCD touch screen for small sites and provides Group and individual control. It can be scheduled weekly or yearly and has a total or partial individual controller lock. There’s a power consumption monitor with Pdi, an ‘emergency stop’ and total ‘on/off’ control. You can set two set points cooling and heating - on each indoor unit with an ‘Auto Change Over’ setting – for heat recovery only. Users can control each space efficiently through an IP network, but access via Smartphones is not available with this unit. As with other LG controllers, statistics of operational status – time and power consumption – are provided to help make intelligent system operation decisions.

Renowned British manufacturer, Pendock has been based in Telford since 1987 and has developed a wide range of encasement solutions such as Pipe Boxing, Column Casings, Radiator Guards and specialist Perimeter Casings for heating. Not surprisingly in its time, Pendock has provided casement solutions for applications ranging from schools to hospitals, from train stations to hotels. But its most recent contract has focused on a high-end property development, where Pendock was tasked with helping to achieve the architect’s highest – or lowest – aesthetic ambitions. In fact, some 69 GRP Circular Skirting Collars – plus spares - have been specially produced for Berkeley Homes’ high profile new project at Chelsea Bridge overlooking Battersea Park, known as the Vista Project.

Bona ensures slip resistance in busy food service area The Bona technical team wrote the specification to meet the performance criteria required by required the Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa, Leeds and the treatment was carried out by John Garner, a Bona certified contractor. The Bona finishes were supplied by Taylored Flooring of Cheadle, Cheshire.

Bona Intense primer delivers a subtle grain enriching effect on medium to dark species and was chosen to replicate the look of the original floor. Slip resistance, especially when the surface is wet, was an important requirement as the floor is installed in the hotel’s busy conference café where food and drink is served throughout the day. Bona Traffic HD Anti Slip was therefore the obvious choice of finish with its combination of high durability and low level slip potential. The slip resistance of this new formulation lacquer surpasses the HSE’s low level slip classification of 36+ when tested using the Pendulum (CoF) test. Prior to the primer and lacquer treatment, John Garner used high performance Bona Ceramic adhesives to sand the prefinished surface back to bare wood then finished the sanding process using Bona Zirconium mix anti-static abrasives. Floors finished with all versions of Bona Traffic HD can be put back into full use after just 12 hours – making these lacquers the perfect choice for commercial areas where avoiding downtime is a key requirement. Gordon Jackson, General Manager at the hotel said, “Our conference café is an incredibly busy area where guests from our 21 meeting rooms congregate to enjoy our fabulous all-day offering. It’s important that it looks fresh and inviting throughout the day and we’re delighted with the lift that this treatment has given the area.” ENQUIRY-Card 568

CaberBoard launches particleboard campaign

Bostik cures Hope Health Centre’s flooring requirements

Norbord’s high-performance Caber Board flooring range. Norbord is stepping up its particleboard promotional effort with a new campaign to publicise its highperformance CaberBoard flooring range. Magazine adverts, point-of-sale displays, leaflets, mailers, a new website page and viral advertisements combine to spread the word about Norbord’s market-leading flooring panels. Featuring the, now-familiar, family of dogs that have been appearing regularly in Norbord publicity, the campaign is aimed at housebuilders and the merchant trade with a focus on the three core products of CaberFloor P5, CaberDek and CaberShieldPlus. CaberFloor P5 is the UK’s leading brand of moisture resistant particleboard flooring and is widely used in both newbuild and refurbishment projects.

A range of subfloor preparation and adhesive products from Bostik have been chosen by OSS Commercial Flooring Ltd for the development of a new health centre, which serves the communities of Hope and Caergwrle in Flintshire, North-West Wales. Castlemead Group was taken on as the main contractor for the centre’s twostory development, who then subcontracted the 1300 square metres of flooring required. Following a technical survey by Bostik, OSS Commercial Flooring selected the company’s Screedmaster One Coat Membrane to protect the new floor coverings from subfloor moisture. Bostik’s Screedmaster Universal Primer was then applied to the surface membrane, before the Screedmaster Flow and Ultimate smoothing compounds were floated out to a 3mm thickness in various areas of the development.

Garador’s Retractable Plus for today’s bigger cars In the last few years most cars have continued to get bigger while the sizes of many garages have tended to remain the same. The result - frustrated homeowners who can’t park their car inside their garage, without the threat of damage or the daily nuisance of having to turn in the wing mirrors to get through the garage door. Step up Garador! Britain’s top garage door manufacturer offers a choice of lifting gear for Up & Over doors, including Canopy, Retractable and Retractable Plus. Its Retractable Plus lifting gear has specially designed lifting arms which allow for wider cars to use the full width of the garage door opening. Retractable lifting gear is a top choice for Garador’s Up & Over garage doors, as it provides extra drive-through width for modern cars (which are often wider) and is perfectly suited for electric automaton, giving homeowners the added convenience of being able to drive into their garage without having to get out of the car to open their garage door.

Garador’s Managing Director Simon Hipgrave says: “We are seeing a big surge in sales of Up and Over doors with Retractable Plus lifting gear, mainly because it provides the extra width needed to get larger saloon and estate cars into smaller garages.’ No cables are used in the lifting process. Instead, they work by the door panels being raised by steel arms and a spring cassette mounted at either side of the door panel to provide a smooth, controlled lift. Retractable Plus lifting gear is especially useful on standard width garage doors under 7'6" feet (2286mm) where that extra space can make all the difference, although it may not help the large 4 x 4s and vans, when the wing mirrors are usually higher up. Garador’s Retractable Plus are straightforward to install and are, along with normal retractable lifting gear, the easiest type of Up & Over door to automate. For a small extra investment, choosing a Garador Retractable Plus garage door will ensure the build is set up well for the modern cars of today – and tomorrow. Find out more about this and all Garador's garage doors by calling 01935 443710 or visit ENQUIRY-Card 575

In recent years, the front door has undoubtedly transitioned from being a functional necessity to a style statement and now one product, in particular, is dominating the domestic market.

doors or any other exterior features. Security remains a top priority and each ThermoComp door comes equipped with a multi-point locking as standard. The hinge side is secured with three security bolts to boost anti-leverage and the 8mm-thick laminated safety glass also helps to prevent break-ins.

Show the elements the door with the Masterdor Craftsman Drawing on years of experience in joinery and traditional craftsmanship, whilst incorporating the latest in innovative technologies and materials, the Masterdor Craftsman range enables customers to sell at the premium end of the market and is further proof that the Synseal Group is very serious about its door offering. Andy Jones, Sales and Marketing Director of the Synseal Group explains: “We are delighted to bring the Masterdor Craftsman to our customers and confident that this unique product is second to none in terms of performance and appearance. These handmade, precision engineered timber doors offer true innovation and outstanding durability. Put simply, they are a better class of door. As beautiful as a traditional timber door can be, wood in its purest form is not the best material for this application. We have “designed out” all of the inherent problems usually experienced with wood, and what we are left with is a class leader in strength, security and stability. The Craftsmen presents a highly attractive consumer retailing proposition and are solid, secure and PAS 24 compliant.” The Masterdor Craftsman offers a range of 22 styles, of which 13 are traditional and nine are contemporary designs, with a choice of 28 elegant glazing styles with energy efficient glass. There are two slab options - 44mm and 54 mm – available with both double and triple rebates, as well as a thermal core option. The whole range is available in a choice of 21 stunning colours, finished in an ultra-smooth, grain-free painted finish. Homeowners can also select from three complementary hardware ranges that include handles, knockers, letterboxes, hinges and locks. A handcrafted heritage range is perfect for more traditional door styles whereas contemporary stainless steel options add the finishing touch to sleeker, modern door designs.

Yet another innovative, market leading product range to come from the Synseal Group - boasting two decades of research, development and product evolution - is the precision engineered timber Masterdor Craftsman.

Andy concludes: “At Synseal, we pride ourselves on being ‘Champions of Choice’ and the Craftsman is testament to that fact. Every time you open or close a Masterdor Craftsman there is a reassuring feeling of quality and an audible ‘clunk’ that underlines the solid and secure nature of this outstanding timber door range. Customers and homeowners love it! The Synseal Group is committed to researching and developing the must have products for today’s market and we believe there to be nothing out there right now that is comparable to the Craftsman.” For more information on the Masterdor Craftsman or to talk to someone about our Showroom Support offering, please contact the Synseal Group visit on 01623 443200 or visit our website, ENQUIRY-Card 583

Energy efficient Scandinavian timber windows from NorDan Leading UK developer Crest Nicholson chose energy efficient Scandinavian timber windows from NorDan for its development at Bath Riverside Victoria Bridge Road.

Sustainability and energy efficiency as well as safety and security are key features designed into every window and door product. Crest Nicholson is firmly established as one of the UK’s leading developers with a passion for creating vibrant and sustainable communities.

DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT Pocket doors are increasing in popularity in the UK but there are still quite a few people, builders included, who are not that familiar with pocket doors, and others who don’t realise how versatile they are. We thought we would set the record straight and debunk a few myths about pocket doors.

• Maybe you wish to divide two rooms or to close off an open plan space? Our double or telescopic sliding pocket door systems provide the perfect solution. • En-suites become roomier and lighter with a glass pocket door. • Perhaps you want to add a wow factor to your interior? The Eclisse stunning curved pocket door systems will make a design statement in any home building project.

Myth One: “Surely they are they hard to assemble and install” No, the assembly of the Eclisse frame for the single pocket door, for example, can be done very quickly as it is just a case of clicking together the metal sections and inserting only 6 screws. Installation is straightforward. Eclisse systems come with comprehensive instructions and there are also videos online to help. Myth Two: “Pocket doors can only be used with a stud wall” No, Eclisse pocket doors systems can be used with studwork and brick walls. If you have a brick wall, you can build out the wall with studwork and plasterboard to create the cavity or pocket for the door, and you will only be adding 100mm to your finished wall thickness.

Eclisse Pocket Door Systems – designed with the installer in mind Eclisse pocket door systems have been thoughtfully designed to make assembly and installation a straightforward job.

Pocket Doors more versatile than you think If you think pocket doors only have a limited amount of uses e.g. as a toilet or utility door, think again…

Myth Three: “You cannot lock a pocket door” Not true. Eclisse sell a range of locks for pocket doors including bathroom locks and key locks.

• You can combine an Eclisse single pocket door system or a double pocket door system with a door from our stunning glass door range. This will make the most of the natural light in your home and add an interesting interior design feature.

Don’t just listen to us, listen to these guys We are very proud that we regularly receive fabulous feedback from our customers. Here are just a few builders who, without prompting, took it upon themselves to give us some great feedback on social media recently, so we contacted them for a bit more information about the projects they used our systems for.

CASE STUDY: Black Oak Builders Black Oak Builders are a London based design and build company specialising in house extensions, loft conversions, full house refurbishments, as well as bathroom and kitchen design and renovation. @blackoakbuilder on Twitter

Project: Messina Avenue Bathrooms and central heating refurbishment Date: July 2016 Architect: Nicky Kirk from NKA (www.nicholaskirk Unlike other pocket door brands, we don’t expect you to spend time cutting the steels to size to suit your door. Because we offer a range of sizes that are made to fit standard UK door sizes, you just pick the kit that fits your standard door size. We also don’t expect you to have to align the track and the pocket when you install our system. Instead the track and pocket assembles together as one complete unit ready to install. Even the door guide has been designed to fit perfectly, dead centre in a matter of seconds.

Small or large project – size is no issue You may want just one pocket door system for a client, or maybe five, like the recent order we supplied for the new Potton Passivhaus show house in St Neots, or perhaps you need 100+, like the order we supplied to the high-spec Holland Green development, i.e. the Grade II-listed former Commonwealth Institute in Holland Park. It doesn’t matter to us, providing great customer service is important to us whatever the size of order, and the Eclisse quality and ease of installation comes as standard.

Product installed: Single pocket door system We ask Daniel from Griffin Works what he thought of our products after using them on a recent job. “I’ve used Eclisse before and seen them in a passive house I worked on recently. I like that the mechanism is smooth and not noisy or clunky like other brands”. Daniel also liked the fact we have installation videos on our website where you can see the frame being assembled and installed into studwork.

Product purchased: Single 726 x 2040 Pocket Door Frame with a frameless glass door and round flush pull. We asked Dom from Black Oak Builders who recently undertook a project and used our product what he thought “Delivered a great product on a short notice. Absolutely excellent service and high quality pocket doors. Highly recommended!” What was your experience of buying from Eclisse? “Eclisse has been a pleasure to work with. Communication has been smooth and pricing clear”. Tel: 0845 481 197 ENQUIRY-Card 586

The quality was superb, the installation simple and effortless and the final look and usability of the product was second to none”.

What was your experience of buying from Eclisse? “Very importantly to us, customer service also matched the quality of the system”. And would you use Eclisse products again? “Without a doubt, Eclisse pocket doors will be our favoured choice going forward”.

VISIONARY STYLING FROM PREMDOR Inspired by the latest interior design influences and fashion colour trends, Premdor has launched Portfolio, a range of luxury veneer internal doors created around four distinctive themes, Natural, Exotic, Contemporary and Classic. All ranges utilise Premdor’s Veneer Match technology which engineers real veneers into a consistent grain and colour yet still allows for natural variation within each door.

A large selection of contemporary glazing styles exist with both commercial and domestic options available, as are glazed FD30 and FD60 Fire doors complete with wired, clear or obscure glass styles available to specify. Non-fire doors with clear glass are toughened to BS EN 12600. A testament to the attention to detail within the Portfolio range are the co-ordinating foil wrapped glazing beads which are coloured to closely match the face veneer.

SWA members see ‘Belgium doors’ making a comeback As in the fashion world, architecture tends to be cyclical; UK designers have revisited everything over the years from Tudor beams to vertical tile hanging. Steel windows, for their part, have remained an enduring element in both domestic and commercial buildings due to their slim sight-lines combined with rugged performance and they too are subject to trends in styles and application. Most recently members of the Steel Window Association have reported a resurgence in the popularity of steel framed entrance screens and partitions: normally featuring a pair of double doors flanked by fixed lights, and referred to as Belgium Doors. These are most commonly installed as the outer door to a porch area, offering excellent weather protection while admitting the maximum amount of natural light. ENQUIRY-Card 153

Spectus steps up its window range Spectus has capped one of its most dynamic years ever with the launch of its latest Specification Guide, with information on two completely new PVC-U systems, a vastly extended stock foil range and updates on specification, legislation and other features of the Spectus product range. The biggest additions in this 8th Issue Guide are Spectus’s all-new Flush Casement and Flush Tilt & Turn systems, both already winning the acclaim of architects and specifiers. The Flush Tilt & Turn system is Spectus’s challenge to aluminium for architects and specifiers looking for a highspecification but cost-effective alternative in the urban medium/highrise environment. The result of significant investment, the Flush Tilt & Turn system, with its unique sixchamber sash and five-chamber outer frame.

Optima results for Epwin Customer Following their recent switch to the Profile 22 Optima system, Epwin Group customer BBH Ltd have reported great interest to the new system and one of their busiest year’s yet. Director Graham Norman explains: “We have been with Epwin and Profile 22 for many years now, and looked forward to fabricating the new Optima range. As we all know, technology doesn’t stand still and the industry continues to evolve and drive forward with the latest advances. And with that in mind, the Optima range certainly didn’t disappoint. “So far it has been really well received, by both customers that have had Optima installed and also by potential customers that have seen our samples. The new design of the sculptured frame is a lot more modern and the 70mm depth lends a more sleek, strong and slim line look. As always, exceptional performance in energy efficiency and weather protection means the range is even more appealing to homeowners. ENQUIRY-Card 154 ENQUIRY-Card 155

Hauraton drainage channels used at Maritime Transport Headquarters in Felixstowe The Maritime Transport Limited new £5 million headquarters in Felixstowe has received the accolade of “Winner-Design (Non residential)” at the Suffolk Coastal Quality of Place awards held in October 2015. Designed by Architects, Wincer Kievenaar, the Maritime Headquarters office provides an impressive gateway to Felixstowe Port. The Headquarters extensive car park, set with composite grey blocks is drained by 98 metres of Hauraton RECYFIX® PLUS 150 channels fitted with Class C250, HEELSAFE ductile iron gratings. A further 47 metres of RECYFIX® PLUS 100 channels were also installed in other locations on site. The RECYFIX® PLUS channel unit is made of tough, virtually unbreakable recycled polypropylene (PP) formulated to be very resistant to daily temperature fluctuations from frost conditions to strong sunlight, including the Ultra Violet (UV) spectrum. The channel unit also features galvanised steel top edges which house the ductile iron gratings. Complying with the requirements of EN 1433, the PP is given its UV resistance by adding just sufficient carbon black as a stabiliser so that the structural

strength of the material is unaffected and a consistent appearance is maintained. The PP is also naturally resistant to de-icing salt. Ken Burgess, Hauraton‘s Project Manager comments; “The main contractor, E.L. Construction Limited liked the product

for its ease of installation, each RECYFIX® PLUS 150 one metre unit, complete with its grating only weighs 12.8 kg, so its easy to position and robust enough to withstand building site conditions”. Technical information for all the RECYFIX® ranges, showing sizing and installation details, is available digitally – LANDSCAPING tab, as is a video “Why is RECYFIX® break-proof”.

Saniflo extends Kinedo Moonlight shower cubicle range Saniflo has further extended its range of prestigious Kinedo shower cubicles to include a quadrant version of its popular model, Moonlight. Previously only available as a corner unit, the extremely versatile design can be fitted with any shower, allowing for complete customisation and integration into any bathroom, whether traditional or contemporary. With its understated elegance and neutral styling, the Moonlight features a brushed aluminium effect panel that can be easily drilled for any fixings. Moonlight is perfect for those who want flexibility as well as great functionality. The sleek shower cubicle is easy to install and maintain, available in one size of 900mm x 900mm and comes with a smooth, sliding door.

The new Kinedo Moonlight Quadrant is ideal for new house builds and the replacement market. Offering excellent value for money, due to the fact that – as with all Saniflo shower cubicles – there is no need for costly, time

consuming and messy grouting and tiling, it is also a super choice for boutique hotels and guest houses. The minimal stress-free maintenance is also something that sets the Kinedo range apart from other showering options. Ann Boardman, Saniflo UK Customer Services & Marketing Manager, comments: “We launched the Kinedo Moonlight Quadrant in response to demand for other Kinedo quadrant models, such as Horizon. Moonlight has proven popular with house builders and refurbishment projects, so we wanted to offer those customers an even wider choice. Another great feature about the Moonlight Quadrant is that it can fit into fairly tight spaces, thanks to the sliding, rather than opening, door. We’re sure that our target market will love the new look Moonlight as much as they do the corner version.”
