Curved Cavity Wall Changes the Roof Pitch?

The pitch of an abutting roof may be constant where it strikes a flat cavity wall, but if the wall is curved the actual angle of intersection changes throughout the slope. For a brief moment at the commencement of the slope the intersection may be horizontal, but as the wall turns the angle changes and those changes continue until the top of the roof slope. Preformed curved Cavitrays by Cavity Trays of Yeovil are individually computer

calculated to take into account the arc of the wall, the masonry coursing and the tray position up the slope. Each tray is numbered so the builder can literally lay by numbers – with assured interfacing and compatibility. Cavitrays also take into account how the wall (and its flashings) will behave during storm conditions. A concave or convex wall accentuates the waterwash being blown across the curved surface. Provision must be made for weathering functionality into the direction of each flashing lap as well as with the direction of the lap. The Cavitray lapping flashing arrangement provides a second layer of water arrestment and the flashing anchoring within a bosem jaw guards against capillary ingress. The use of recessed pointing on any curved masonry is best avoided as it can act as a conduit along the wall surface. Flush pointing around flashings is favoured as it offers an uninterrupted consistent surface finish and promotes a solidity of masonry and tray bond. In terms of cost effectiveness, flush pointing also eliminates the need for further attention from the mason. Only the tray flashings require dressing later in the build programme. Cavity Trays of Yeovil operates concept design and advisory services for which no charges are applied. The Company is the only cavity tray manufacturer awarded European Technical Approval. enquiries@cavitytrays.co.uk www.mclink.co.uk/1019-500 ENQUIRY-Card 500

FAKRO V40P Semi-Automatic Air Ventilation Creates A Healthy Microclimate and Year-Round Energy Savings. Our innovative air inlet system uses a semi-automatic vent activated by changes in wind pressure to continually adjusts levels of fresh air flow - read on to discover more about the potential savings and health solutions behind our innovative design. The current industry standard for air inlets used by roof window manufacturers is an inefficient, manually operated vent, which can frequently result in problems such as condensation, heat loss and excessive cooling. The innovative design of FAKRO’s V40P semiautomatic air inlet allows it to be placed in the upper part of the frame instead of in the sash. The inlet itself contains an elastic, pneumatic flap which opens or closes to either deflect the inflow of air by reducing the duct area, or increase air flow in order to maintain a stable atmospheric level.

Gothic Revival

History repeats itself with a modern colour twist For today’s construction professionals, offering sound advice on the latest trends is often expected these days… and that includes knowing the current decorating colour styles. According to the experts at Crown Decorating Centres, history is most definitely repeating itself this season – but with a great modern twist. For customers who want to be right on trend, whether they are individual homeowners or major renovation projects, this season’s style inspiration has particular historical significance, and advising on an authentic colour palette is often an excellent starting point. Explains Crown Decorating Centres’ Colour Specialist, Kathryn Lloyd: “Throughout history, the development of colour for decoration has depended not only on prevailing taste, but also on the pigments available. That’s why certain colours and colour schemes seem to suit certain building types and even particular locations. “Of course, the development of synthetic pigments in recent years has made virtually any colour available to the homeowner, but historically authentic colours remain as appropriate today as they always have, because they owe something to nature and the environment.” Here Kathryn gives an insight into five architectural styles and movements from centuries past – each with a distinct colour palette to reflect the architecture and design trends of the period.

Neo-Classical: This collection draws on the style prevalent in the second half of the 18th Century, inspired by the growing archaeological evidence of how the Romans decorated and furnished their buildings. This collection embraces the clearer, lighter colours used at that time. Muted matt shades of yellow and pink combine with chalky greys, blues and greens. For the modern homeowner wanting to embrace muted shades with subtle twists, this is an ideal choice. The Gothic Revival of the 1830s and ‘40s draws inspiration from the study of Medieval buildings and decorative objects. The colours in this collection are noticeably rich and vibrant, drawn from medieval decorative motifs which would have been used in fabrics and ceramics. This palette features a rich tapestry of vibrant yellows, reds, greens and blues which mingle with muted counterparts, and is made for the homeowner who is ready to embrace colour at its most bold. Late in the 19th Century, the Arts & Crafts Movement sought to revive traditional building crafts and the use of local materials. This was reflected in homes where craftsmanship, simplicity and good design using warm colours driven by nature, were used as a reaction against low quality mass produced design.

The colours of the era reflect that greater sense of individuality, with a mix-and-match colour palette of strong greens and oranges alongside milder sage and sandy hues. Fast forward to the 1920s and ‘30s and the inimitable Art Deco style became de rigeur. Inspired by the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels held in Paris in 1925, the shapes and colours of the day convey an image of pure elegant luxury. Statement black and rich blue are accompanied by pure greens, understated greys and browns. This eclectic mix of stylish statement pieces has seen a well-deserved resurgence in design popularity with its simple lines and calming colours. Finally, the ‘50s Sketchbook draws on the creativity of post-war architecture and design when new housing and commercial buildings were urgently required. This challenge drove architects and designers to produce inspired design and decoration, adding a splash of colour to a Britain being rebuilt with mass produced materials. It was a challenge which brought new colour combinations to the fore - sky blues and yellows, mustard, terracotta and greys. Bold choices for a brave new era. Adds Kathryn: “Creating an authentic look in your home is a really satisfying way of achieving a great new look. It gives a sense of purpose to a decorating project, but sometimes it’s difficult for homeowners to know where to start. “We’ve brought together eight timebound collections which capture the essence and historical significance of the era – each with a palette of fifteen shades which gives homeowners the

Arts and Crafts

scope to create an original yet valid look. “What’s great is that while the colours are historic, the technology behind them is most definitely contemporary to ensure a perfect lasting finish and effect.” Most Historic Colours are available in a wide range of Crown Trade finishes, including Clean Extreme High Performance Emulsions, Matt Vinyl, Silk Vinyl, Mid Sheen, Satin Finish, Eggshell, Acrylic Eggshell and Full Gloss.

Cold conservatory brought back to life with Ultrotherm IWI A Pulborough conservatory extension rendered unusable by cold, mould and condensation has been brought back into everyday use thanks to Ultrotherm Internal Wall Insulation (IWI) from Safeguard Europe – the UK’s leading specialist in dampproofing and waterproofing technology. Located in a remote rural part of West Sussex, the property has had various extensions added to it – including a brick-built conservatory area on the ground floor. The walls of the extension are weather facing on three sides, with each exterior wall featuring large windows. And because the conservatory was so exposed to the elements, large amounts of condensation and significant mould growth were present, while decoration had spoiled. The property owner was keen to fix the problem and make the room usable again but wanted to be able to keep the existing fixtures, skirting

boards and radiators. It was as decided that the best way to eliminate the condensation and mould in this particular property was to raise the temperature of the internal walls. If a traditional internal insulation system was used it generally would require the installation of new fittings and the extension of window ledges and radiator fixings. The chosen solution was the Ultrotherm internal insulation system for solid walls. Its ability to increase the thermal resistance of walls can help to stop condensation and associated mould growth. Although only 12mm thick, Ultrotherm typically improves the thermal resistance of solid brick walls by 40%, creating a more comfortable living environment, reducing energy bills and reducing mould growth risk. With an expected service life in excess of 25 years, Ultrotherm offers a long-term and practical solution to condensation issues and increased energy efficiency. Supplied in a tile format, Ultrotherm

is installed over existing plaster, so retaining the retains the character of a property as removing and reinstating fixtures like skirtings is unnecessary. The flexible nature of the tiles allows even the most awkward shapes and curves to be insulated; while insulated trim beads are used against door and window frames to reduce the problem of cold bridging In the Pulborough conservatory, once all of the tiles had been installed, they were then directly plastered onto using two coats of standard thistle board finish. The entire room was insulated and replastered within three days, ready for decoration once the plaster coats had dried. The room has now been redecorated and put back in to regular use. The insulating properties of the Ultrotherm tiles now allow for the room to be heated at the same level as before but without the reoccurring mould and condensation issues. www.safeguardeurope.com www.mclink.co.uk/1019-509 ENQUIRY-Card 509

Other significant innovations include the awardwinning PressToCheck™ FORCE 8™ mask, which helps to ensure respirators are worn correctly, Europe’s lightest best performing full shell bump cap otherwise known as the new AeroLite™ Hardcap™ - and the recent range of SonisTM Ear Defenders, peaking at an unbeaten SNR of 37.

Improving Occupational Safety and Health Worldwide Manufacturing for safety is what JSP is all about, and this is reflected in its high quality selection of industrial head protection and “above the neck” Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Working in this important industry sector since 1964, the company has succeeded with its suite of value-added solutions and has since acquired status as a leading independent European manufacturer. Its portfolio comprises various head protection, eye & face protection, respiratory protection, hearing protection and working at height equipment.

Much of the specialised PPE can be made to measure; the safety helmets, hearing products and eyewear customised according to individual specifications using corporate logos and colour schemes. “JSP is the trusted choice for quality personal protective products with a devoted team responsive to bespoke demands, listening to customers and consistently delivering promises,” a company representative commented. “We understand the importance of bespoke products for the customer and brand products for companies by adding corporate logos, safety messages, individual names and identity systems.” The components, which are manufactured on ultramodern production lines, offer an enhanced sense of protection, comfort and ease for workers in a cross-section of industry sectors. Whether based within the construction & civil engineering, automotive, steel, chemical, oil & gas, mining, manufacturing, energy & utilities, rail transport & infrastructure or agricultural market, individuals can rest assured that their wellbeing will be maximised in the workplace with JSP’s innovative safety solutions. The manufacturer focuses strongly on the undertaking of research and development in order to create fully functional PPE and does so with the employment of an experienced inhouse team operating from its core manufacturing and testing facilities in Oxford. Production is undergone in line with its worldwide QMS (Quality

Management System) and the British Standard Institution’s (BSI) KitemarkTM scheme, a symbol representing quality, integrity and safety. The KitemarkTM accreditation demonstrates compliance with the applicable British, European and international standards and indicates that the products have been batchtested. Similarly, the JSPCheckTM (www.jspcheck.com) adds validation as a uniquely developed online checking system that ensures the speedy and straightforward online tracing of JSP products. Particularly popular with clients, JSP’s core range of EVOLUTION® helmets comprises the mainstream EVO® 2 & 3 models, the EVOLite® (the world’s

Through its efficient network of dedicated distributors the solutions are delivered to customers in over 100 countries.

Worktops Leverage Levenshulme Housing Project A housing scheme in Levenshulme, greater Manchester has maximised budgets and installation times thanks to specification of unique surfaces from Maxtop Quartz. The Black Onyx Sparkle Maxtop Quartz worktop was selected by MCI Developments and has been installed within six of the 42 properties. Allen Burns, commercial manager of MCI Developments, commented: “We offered to try the Maxtop Quartz surface because the housing scheme is located

close to the Maxtop headquarters. We’re always looking at new and innovative products, so wanted to give them a try. “We were looking for a product that was durable and easy on the eye and Maxtop definitely fit the criteria. “We ordered 39 metres of the product and were really happy

The new Calla sink from Carron Phoenix offers the durability of granite

with how easy it was to install – it was done in no time, which meant that we could quickly move forward with other fit out.” Fitted within the six homes which will be made available for private sale, the housing scheme will also include 22 homes for affordable rent and 14 properties for shared ownership sale. Priority for the properties will be given to people who currently live or work locally and existing social housing tenants. Maxtop Quartz, which is available in up to ten finishes and comes with a 25-year guarantee, is a unique product in the surface market. Featuring a patented interior honeycomb structure, the product offers the aesthetic benefits of a solid stone surface, with the advantage of a deeper 40mm profile.

Copper Loft joins the Aqua-Step waterproof laminate flooring range Copper Loft is a brand new design

The new Calla 150 inset sink from Carron Phoenix offers the durability and easy maintenance of granite at an entry-level price point. Its curvaceous bowl design distinguishes it from other Carron Phoenix granite sinks and combined with its simple lines, offers across-the-board appeal for a wide range of kitchen styles. The easy-to-install Calla is available now in three popular colours of Polar White, Champagne and Jet Black and fits a standard 600mm cabinet. The spacious 362 x 442 x 210mm bowl size, deep drainer grooves and optional wire basket enhance the functionality of the sink space for a multitude of prepping, cleaning and washing up tasks. The sink is scratch resistant, temperature resistant to 280°C and won’t stain. As with all Carron Phoenix granite sinks.

addition to the Aqua-Step waterproof laminate flooring range, available from International Decorative Surfaces. Offering a mix of warm brown tones and copper highlights in a random stone effect, Copper Loft is a versatile design for domestic and commercial applications including bathrooms, ensuites, WC’s, washrooms and spas. It is part of the Ceramics by Aqua Step range which offers five designs in a tile size of 592mm x 297mm x 5.3mm thickness with R10 slip resistance to meet commercial requirements. The product can be used with electric or water-fed underfloor heating and is backed by a 25 year domestic wear warranty and 7 years on commercial applications. The comprehensive Aqua-Step flooring range offers 14 plank designs, 3 half plank, 11 mini tiles and 5 ceramic tiles, all assuring easy installation with the patented Uniclic system.

Allen continued: “The Maxtop Quartz surface is a quality product and a great alternative to solid stone surfaces. As with projects of this nature, costs were tight and we’ve been able to get the finish we were looking for within our strict budget. We trust the durability of the surface will make it money well spent.”

Bushboard’s Nuance bathroom panels luxe-up any bathroom design With the realism of their high print definition and surface textures, the 12 True Scale designs in Bushboard’s Nuance laminate panelling range can luxe up any bathroom. Compared to natural stone or granite, the elegant laminate panels offer the advantages of easy care and maintenance as well as fast, simple installation. Nuance is the only range on the market without extrusions, allowing the creation of large expanses of decorative surface to elevate the design aesthetics. Backed by a 15-year guarantee, Nuance is also unique in being inherently 100% water impervious, so the panels will not swell or degrade over time.

Stephen Moss, managing director of Maxtop Quartz Ltd, concluded: “It is fantastic to have our surfaces installed in a development site just around the corner from us in Levenshulme. “The Maxtop Quartz surface is ideal for these types of housing projects where timescales and budgets need to be met. While the quartz exterior adds a quality finish to the product and a luxurious feel to the kitchen environment.” For more information about Maxtop please visit www.maxtopquartz.co.uk , call 0161 224 0333 or visit the Maxtop YouTube page to watch a short installation video. www.mclink.co.uk/1019-530 ENQUIRY-Card 530

Marmox Showerlay360 drain enables most versatile floor level shower available

British company specialising in insulation and waterproofing products, Marmox, has added a new drainage solution to its range of Showerlay floor level shower bases, which has been designed to simplify the installation of plumbing in both new-build and refurbishment applications and is compliant with all relevant standards. Joining the company’s extensive range of products, the new Showerlay360 Drain, as the superscript title suggests, is fully rotatable to enable use in horizontal as well as vertical outlet connections – or any angle in between – for total flexibility. For even greater ease and adaptability of installation, the compact drain measures just 80mm deep with a 50mm water seal. It can be utilised with both of Marmox’s Showerlay trays, which are tileable sloping bases for a shower area on either a wooden or concrete subfloor. Two options are available: a 20mm or 24mm version which is supplied with a traditional square drain or a 40mm thick version which features a stainless steel linear drain. Both can be used to create level access showering areas, or wet rooms. The square drain version has a brushed stainless steel grate housed in an integrated frame which can be adjusted to accommodate tiling thicknesses from 5mm to 15mm. Thanks to the new adjustable Showerlay360 drain, the siting of the drain gully is now infinite, offering endless design opportunities. Depending on the angle of the outlet pipe, the flow rate is 30 to 50 litres per minute, and thus faster than its predecessor. Showerlay, when combined with Marmox’s well tried and tested Multiboard, ensures an exceptionally stable decoupling substrate to tile upon. Manufactured from an extruded polystyrene foam (XPS) core, the boards also provide very good thermal insulation and are completely impermeable to water for a totally leak-proof and trouble-free installation. Marmox (UK) additionally manufactures solutions for pipe boxing, curved walls and showers, as well as bath panel kits. MARMOX (UK) LTD sales@marmox.co.uk www.marmox.co.uk www.mclink.co.uk/1019-581.

An integrated wetroom solution from Schlüter-Systems Ltd When it comes to long term success, possible time and cost savings and versatile design options for wetrooms, we recommend an integrated singlesource system.

Under wall heating from Schlüter-Systems is a unique solution that is very easy to install and allows radiated heating underneath the tile, thus keeping the system protected and away from harm.

The beauty of the Schlüter®-WETROOM system is that its products have been designed and manufactured to complement each other and take care of installation issues, resulting in a reliable, water-tight finish which is CE marked and guaranteed to last for years to come.

The electrical heating system for under tile and stone coverings, Schlüter®-DITRAHEAT-E creates comfortably warm tile and stone coverings and can be used in wetrooms, bathrooms, en-suites and shower-rooms.

A fundamental consideration is moisture management. Poor moisture management can cause leaks leading to damage in the surrounding structure and the potential for mould growth. Heating under tile and stone coverings in a wetroom or bathroom, can be an extremely beneficial method of ensuring efficient heating, effective moisture management, preventing damp, mould and fungus by drying out any residual moisture, and providing comfort. Under wall heating is a relatively new, innovative heating solution that not only offers a great source of heat but is also a safer alternative to a towel rail or radiator; particularly for children and the elderly.

Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E, has been updated with Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-TB matting. The patented Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-TB thermal break, in addition to reducing impact sound, enables significantly faster heating of floor coverings. The revolutionary integrated thermal break reduces heat loss into the screed and subfloor, and it also benefits from up to 70% quicker warm-up time on concrete than other electric underfloor heating systems.

SALUS launches new RT Thermostat range

Stokvix offers efficiency & flexibility with Econo-Air

Leading heating controls specialist, SALUS, has introduced a new and improved RT Thermostat range to its expansive heating controls portfolio. The new SALUS RT310 and RT510 thermostats replace the highly successful RT300 and RT500 ranges. Whilst the RT310 is a simple digital thermostat, the RT510 offers programmable capabilities. Both thermostats are available with or without wiring, and all models come with a five-year warranty. A new smart phone thermostat, RT310i has also been launched. In addition to the many popular features associated with the previous models, the new thermostats boast an eye-catching contemporary design and several exciting new features that are set to appeal to homeowners and installers alike.

Stokvis has developed the Econo-Air range specifically for large open interior spaces such as warehouses, factories, sports centres and theatres. Econo-Air gas-fired heating and ventilation systems from Stokvis offer excellent indoor air quality and optimum energy efficiency for large buildings across a range of industrial and commercial applications. Available as both direct fired and indirect fired units, the EconoAir range is flexible and highly adaptable to the end-user’s requirements. Stokvis has developed the Econo-Air range specifically for large open interior spaces such as warehouses, factories, sports centres and theatres. A choice of air distribution heads is available to give designers the option of ductless air distribution, thereby eliminating the need for complex ductwork and high level de-stratification fan units.

customers in a range of applications. “We choose Rinnai heaters because they are reliable, and easy to work on, as well as being efficient. O’Neil’s use only the best as call backs can be expensive and so installing the Rinnai heating range within commercial installations is an obvious choice, and makes for happy customers,” says O’Neil’s installation manager Ross McWhirter. “We have used Rinnai heaters in many churches – for example St Mary’s – because of their efficiency and ease of installation. “We have installed Rinnai continuous flow water heaters in Adeli Foods for the same reasons. We choose Rinnai products in such installations simply because no other product could provide the result we and more importantly our customers expect and want. This along with the excellent customer service provided by Rinnai, mean that their heaters and water heaters are always our choice.” For more information on the RINNAI product range visit www.rinnaiuk.com www.mclink.co.uk/1019-536.

Underfloor heating ticks all the boxes! When it comes to heating, there is no single off-the-peg solution that suits every situation and it is no longer a case of considering the individual components in isolation. Now the emphasis is on looking at the whole project design and mixing and matching various systems to achieve the most appropriate overall solution. This is being driven by the building regulations which, in turn, are taking account of the sustainability agenda, energy use and reduction of CO2 emissions in buildings. As a consequence, suppliers that provide total designed solutions rather than individual products are in a winning position. Underfloor heating (UFH) - whether wet or electric – is well placed to be part of a holistic design solution. www.mclink.co.uk/1019-126 ENQUIRY-Card 126

Rinnai all a-twitter with real news Rinnai, designer and manufacturer of the ErP labelled A-rated Infinity range of continuous flow gas fired water heaters (including the new Infinity Solo with storage), has been at the centre of a Twitter flurry on social media. Installers and contractors are giving a new meaning to ‘digital’ media as their fingers glide across Smart phones to post glowing reports on their experiences with Rinnai’s units and customer service. For example, one Twitter follower tweeted, “Rinnai products are hard to beat! Others should aim to be half as good!” while another said, on the subject of space heaters (Rinnai leads the field in energy efficient gas fired space heaters for large spaces) with this: “I wouldn’t consider any other space heater in a church or hall – also the little 309FTR (space heater) is working a treat” www.mclink.co.uk/1019-127 ENQUIRY-Card 127

RINNAI SOLO – A SPECIFIER’S & INSTALLER’S FLEXIBLE FRIEND

Infinity Solo condensing low NOX water heater is the first Rinnai product for the UK that combines the advanced technology of wall mounted continuous flow water heaters with a stainless-steel storage cylinder in one compact footprint.

When the product was first introduced Solo was adopted as a single installation product for light commercial operations such as small hotels and schools. However, Rinnai is now seeing greater penetration as installers are beginning to use them in multiples on larger projects - one installer has utilised three units for a major school academy installation. It seems the market is identifying other areas for the Solo, beyond the target market of new build and refurbishment housing projects, where it is proving its worth in larger three/four-bed dwellings where one can expect to find a family bathroom, ensuite and a downstairs cloakroom/shower. The Rinnai Solo is a versatile product - it is renewables ready so the business/building owner or householder can very easily extend the system to make fuel savings by adding solar thermal later.

Heating & Plumbing 31 Because the Solo cylinder is stainless steel it greatly reduces the weight compared to glass lined models, which makes transportation and installation much easier. As well as the difference in weight, the cylinders available also boast 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 and the system when fitted to a renewable heat source maximises renewable gains. Rinnai’s new Solo range incorporates 35kW and 54kW appliances, ensuring that even sites with a smaller gas meter can utilise its advanced technologies. The larger Infinity Solo model will also act as a high-efficiency alternative to other forms of gas fired storage appliances. For more information on the RINNAI product range visit www.rinnaiuk.com www.mclink.co.uk/1019-537 ENQUIRY-Card 537

The 24kW-59.5kW Infinity Solo range is renewables compatible and supplied pre-fitted with a coil, meaning that the primary energy source can be renewable gains such as solar thermal, and the complementary Rinnai water heater will only apply the precise amount of gas to boost the difference in temperature.

Intelligent pump solutions Grundfos ALPHA3 perfectly in balance The new10:30 Grundfos ALPHA3 redefines Page 1 what a small domestic circulator can do. Filled with useful features and

robust hardware, the circulator raises the bar for efficiency and reliability in domestic circulators, even in the toughest systems. When combined with the ALPHA Reader the ALPHA3 uses a light sensor to read data communication from the pump and send it to a smart device. The installer then follows some easy steps to hydronically balance the heating system. This solution means that complex data collection and calculations are done automatically in the GO Balance app. This is a huge improvement on existing market solutions as time and costs are substantially reduced as the ability to read key data remotely benefits installers and homeowners alike, and a correctly balanced domestic radiator or underfloor heating system can generate savings ranging from 7% to 20% on the heating bill. The savings don’t end there as with an energy efficiency index of just 0.15, the Grundfos ALPHA3 is the most energy-

efficient circulator in its class, it analyses the pattern of use and automatically adjusts the power output down to as little as 3W when the demand is low, offering an energy saving of 87% compared to regular pumps. So welcome to the market’s most reliable and durable circulator, with the added benefit of substantial savings on heating bills through quick and easy hydronic balancing. Making it as easy as 1-2-ALPHA3.

The Grundfos SCALA2 is second to none GRUNDFOS SCALA2 is a new compact, variable speed, water booster pump that has been specifically designed and built to deliver perfect water pressure to wherever it is needed in the home. Recently launched and WRAS approved, each unit is a fully integrated water booster pump that will provide the perfect water pressure to up to 8 water outlets – even with multiple taps and showers running at the same time. The SCALA2 combines the pump, motor, tank, sensor, drive and non-return valve in one neat package. The units also offer intelligent pump control as they adjust their operation to ensure perfect water pressure at all times. Their compact size means a minimal footprint and enables them to be fitted into a small space. They also offer great value for money and with a noise level of 47 dB(A) in typical use,

SCALA2 is one of the quietest boosters in its class with just one variant that is suitable for all domestic applications. SCALA2 comes equipped with intelligent pump control, and the integrated sensor detects if the inlet pressure varies or if there are several taps open and immediately tells the pump to boost the pressure. And it happens so fast that you won’t notice any change in your water pressure at all. So when the question is pressure boosting – the Grundfos SCALA2 has the answer.

Introducing the METROPOLIS grating Ductile iron gratings on surface water drainage channels don’t necessarily need to be utilitarian in appearance with geometric slots or meshes. Inspired by the patterns made by water flowing down a stream, the surface design of the Hauraton METROPOLIS grating is reminiscent of the ART NOUVEAU style and later ART DECO period. Planners and landscape architects can now choose this grating to add a touch of class to their schemes in historic and pre-modern townscapes or any surface drainage project where an aesthetic, more decretive look is desired.

Yeoman Rainguard Rainwater Systems Chosen by Persimmon Homes for Luxury Renovation. Nestled in the foothills of the South Pennines near Rochdale, Lancashire, is the restoration and conversion, by Persimmon Homes, of the old Birch Hill Hospital into stunning apartments and town houses. The use of the beautiful historic building, gracing Rochdale’s landscape since 1877, has certainly changed starting out originally as a workhouse then run as an NHS hospital for many years. The dilapidated hospital, imposing clock tower, chapel and rectory required sympathetic restoration techniques by Persimmon Homes’ team to maintain and restore the buildings grand architecture and design. Yeoman Rainguard’s XL Aluminium rainwater systems, with traditional style, textured finish and colour, were chosen to mirror the grandeur and luxury of the renovation scheme. The exterior of what was the main hospital and clock tower, now exclusive and desirable apartments, was enhanced both visually and practically by the installation of Yeoman Rainguard XL Aluminium gutters and downpipes. Finished in RAL7012 Basalt Grey, 150 x 100mm MOG XL Aluminium gutters were fitted with the addition of 100mm dia. downpipes.

A bespoke GRP fascia detail, skilfully manufactured by Yeoman Rainguard at their facilities in Leeds, sits stylishly below the gutters. The Chapel has been tastefully remodelled into 2 semi-detached

TfL re-awards asset maintenance contracts to Lanes Group

. www.McDermottPublishing.com . March 2017 .

Transport for London has re-awarded contracts to Lanes Group to maintain structure and drainage assets associated with the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly underground lines. The awards, made under Lot 3 of TfL's asset maintenance procurement process, means Lanes Group has retained all contracts currently held. Under TfL's new procurement regime, designed to streamline its maintenance supply chain, it also means Lanes Group can now bid for more work across all transport infrastructure. Matthew Todd, Commercial Director of Lanes Rail Division, said: "This is the best possible outcome for us, so is very positive. It reflects the strong case we were able make in our bid, based on our work for Transport for London over recent years.

Antislip decking goes back to nature with luxurious woodland cabins Holiday-makers visiting luxurious log cabins set deep in Scottish woodlands, are able to enjoy the great outdoors more safely after JB Antislip Plus from Marley Eternit was specified to provide the external antislip surface for the cabins’ outdoor decking areas. The 11 woodland cabins, which are located in Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, Strathyre, on the edge of Loch Lubnaig, offer guests a secluded escape in a variety of cabin options, many with a hot tub on the decking area. It was this unique combination of solid timber cabins against a picturesque mountainous background, which saw project owners Forest Holidays, need to specify a robust decking solution, which not only provided a natural extension to the cabins’ timber exteriors, but also delivered effective antislip properties.

It’s a new angle as Eurocell elevates Skypod range Building upon the success of the market-leading Skypod range of PVC-U skylights, Eurocell is launching its latest model - Skypod Acute. As the name suggests, the new addition features a steeper pitch: 350 in fact, a full 150 more than the current design. The new 350 pitch is visually very different to the standard 200, making it suitable for more commercial applications such as schools, colleges,

hospitals and offices, where this pitch degree is better suited to larger, multistorey buildings. This market tends to be dominated by aluminium products, so

the arrival of the new Skypod provides an aesthetically pleasing and costeffective alternative for the installer to offer customers. Skypod Acute sports the same stylish, narrow glazing bars and generous sightlines for residential properties as the rest of the Skypod range. Furthermore, its square format now fits an even smaller aperture, allowing even more light into parts of the home that previously was not possible. In addition, no sidebars are needed on sizes up to 1.5m x 2.75m, so further improving

sightlines and letting in more natural light. Installation is quick and straightforward. Everything needed is supplied ‘out of the box’ and even the screw holes are pre-drilled for accuracy and convenience. Skypod Acute is supplied with selfcleaning, temperature controlled glass in Blue, Neutral, Bronze and Clear as standard, with a U-value of 1.0W/m²K achievable. Skypod’s success in the market is due in no small part to its good looks and aesthetics especially when compared to other PVC-U systems. Plus, it offers better value for money than aluminium alternatives. Its contemporary design means that Skypod is the most effective means of boosting headroom and volume, while welcoming extra natural light into otherwise drab flatroofed rooms. As with all Skypod products, Skypod Acute has a 10-year guarantee and is available in the full colour range of Anthracite Grey, Moondust Grey, Golden Oak, Rosewood and White – with a white interior finish as standard to maximise the light and airy feel. A further 30 colour options can be made to order in just three weeks. Skypod Acute it available to buy in kits from any Eurocell branch or bar length for Eurocell fabricators and is available to order now.

Architects & Builders are turning to JJI-Joists when looking to build Passivhaus standards More and more architects and builders are recognising that using JJI-Joists to construct walls and roofs gives them the opportunity to maximise the insulation they are able to incorporate into a building. The shape of the JJI-Joist, with its 9mm OSB web means that cold bridging is reduced and the wide choice of joist depths make it easy to choose a specification that meets the specific design requirement to suit the building and location.

Both architects and builders are turning to JJIJoists when looking to build to Passivhaus standards, using the joists in stick build construction or pre-fabricated cassettes. Because the JJI-Joist allows for high levels of insulation and is easy to work with onsite, creating a structure which meets Passivhaus standards for airtightness is more straightforward, aided by the OSB web which outperforms a metal web joist when it comes to controlling energy movement. With the biggest range of standard sizes on the market with joist depths from 145 to 450 mm, as well as bespoke sizes available to special order, architects, engineers and building contractors know that they can easily specify the right joist for a job. JJI-Joists come with the best design and engineering support in the business with a team

of regional technical sales staff backed up by a design and engineering resource at our manufacturing plant in Scotland. With impeccable environmental credentials, including being available with FSC or PEFC certification, JJI-Joists are the only I-Beam on the market that can be supplied with independently verified carbon data, meaning that we can accurately tell you the carbon impact of the joists in your job. The JJI-Joist system is designed to make your job easier, whether you are an architect, engineer or builder; choosing JJI-Joists means you are guaranteed total peace of mind. www. jamesjones.co.uk email: jji-joists@jamesjones.co.uk www.mclink.co.uk/1019-547 ENQUIRY-Card 547

Whatever you ask of it, a JJI-Joist has the answer every time. No ifs. No buts. No matter how complex or awkward the job, we have built the ultimate can-do joist. By manufacturing to the highest specification our I-Joists are light, strong, thermally efficient, BIM compatible, FSC and PEFC certified and PAS 2050 accredited (to cut a long list short). But it’s also the back-up we offer that no one can equal. Our expert team of designers, engineers and regional technical support is always there to say ‘yes we can’.

KEMPER PROVIDES ROOF TERRACE AND BALCONY SOLUTION AT MILLBROOK PARK Kemper System’s Kemperol V210 coldapplied liquid waterproofing membrane has been used to complete a mix of private and social housing at ‘The Mount’; part of the 2,174 unit, multi-developer Millbrook Park scheme in the London Borough of Barnet. Comprising a mix of eight four-storey apartment blocks and four blocks of three-storey town houses, the landmark scheme is part of a major regeneration project to create a new community in Mill Hill, which includes a new primary school and almost six hectares of green space. Kemper System’s Kemperol V210 membrane has been used as part of a brown roof build up on the apartment blocks, which also include a solar PV installation on the roof. It has also been used as the

waterproofing membrane on the town house balconies. Specialist contractor, Cawston Roofing was responsible for delivering the roofing scheme, applying Kemper System’s Kempertec EP5 Primer to the concrete substrate before installing the Kemperol V210 membrane in a single wet-on-wet process. The cold-applied resin was rollered onto the roof and Kemper System’s 165g flexible reinforcement fleece was laid onto the wet resin, followed by more resin to ensure complete saturation prior to curing. The inverted roof build up included installation of a double thickness of 180mm XPS (extruded polystyrene) insulation board onto the cured membrane, followed by a slimline deflection membrane and paving slabs to provide the base for the solar PV panels. The brown roof was then installed around the perimeter of each block. The same inverted system was used for the apartments’ terraces, with a lighter insulation. On the townhouse balconies, the Kemperol V210 was applied to the ply substrate, using the same wet-onwet resin-fleece-resin process, as there was no requirement for insulation. Comments Kevin Cawston from Cawston Roofing: “The Kemperol V210 system was ideal for this project as it was suitable for use across the roof, terrace and balcony areas. With excellent root resistance it addressed the needs of the brown roof specification and the inverted roof build up enabled trades to begin the interior fit out while work continued on the roof.” www.kempersystem.co.uk www.mclink.co.uk/1019-548 ENQUIRY-Card 548

Installers, roofers and tradesmen could potentially secure better margins by offering the Liteleader range whilst also taking advantage of a surging trend among consumers.”

The Liteleader range starts with the Ecolite+, a centre-pivot pine window, with a slim but durable frame and a ventilation valve, maximising important natural light and fresh air. It also includes the EcoWhite, a modern and versatile centre-pivot, white painted roof window that boasts a wide frame for a sturdy finish. And rounding off the range is the EcoSolid, a uPVC roof window finished in white that is perfect for high-humidity areas.

The latest addition to the Twinfix range is a premium glass canopy that can be created in many different styles, from cantilever to freestanding. It’s made from galvanised and polyester powder coated steel and glazed with 13.5mm laminated glass that is fixed using satin stainless steel bolts. The use of bolts rather than glazing bars to fix the glass creates clean lines and large open areas of glazing. Suitable for any sector, this elegant modern canopy can be used to make a feature and provide shelter at an entrance, but can also be used for walkways and other purposes. Generally these cantilever canopies are designed to be reverse pitch to allow the drainage to run into a gutter next to the building and to keep a sleek overall look.

AFFORDABLE WOODEN LOOKS WITH GARADOR’S DECO PAINT FINISH Garador’s hugely popular GaraRoll roller door comes in an assortment of colours, with a breadth of choice for specifiers and homeowners alike.

There are 9 colours and 2 timber effect finishes for the GaraRoll; the latter of which is applied using a foil coat. But the timber effect is also available in Deco Paint, a style offering real timber effect but with a serious cost advantage over the foil coated options. Using the latest paint technology, the Deco Paint finish has been designed specifically to cover GaraRoll’s aluminium laths enhancing their durability and appearance. The Deco

Paint helps the corrosion resistant doors keeps their good looks even in coastal homes battered by high winds and salt spray in the air. Rosewood and Golden Oak are the two timber effects on offer in the GaraRoll range; shades designed to complement both modern and traditional homes. They will be particularly useful for the increasing number of homes that include wooden features in the main build. Even the GaraRoll’s guide rails are finished to colour match the door curtain, ensuring an immaculate and very pleasing overall look for homeowners. Garador’s GaraRoll roller door also offers many other advantages, with long-lasting brush seals and a spring assisted motor for a smooth door motion. It is also an excellent choice for those looking to save space inside the garage, and also in situations where ceiling space needs to be retained or when access to the roof is required. GaraRoll comes with a choice of a 2 button or 4 button hand transmitter, each in an understated matt black finish. The Deco Paint finish comes at a significant cost advantage and with its hardwearing timber effect, GaraRoll doors supplied in this colour are an excellent new choice for new builds and existing garages across the UK.

Slim profiles and good lead times win Chiswick Gate development with Berkeley Homes West London for Rationel Windows. Rationel supplied the timber windows, entrance doors and window doors for this prestigious new housing development by Berkeley Homes in West London at Chiswick Gate.

The Chiswick Gate Development is close to the River Thames, the parks and gardens of Chiswick House, also famous for its concerts and musical events, and the M4 and Chiswick High Street with its first class amenities. Apartments are being marketing from £800,000 to £2.2m each. It is a brown field site which was previously commercial office buildings demolished to make place for rows of top quality apartments rising to four storeys, along-side town housing designed to reflect the original Victorian surroundings. Berkeley specified Rationel because of the lead time the company could deliver from factory to site, and the aesthetics of the timber window product design with their slim profiles and good sound attenuation. Alan Daly, from Berkeley Group said: ”Rationel could supply us with an aesthetically pleasing window with slim frames, good acoustic reduction and were quite competitive on price. We have worked with the firm in the past and know the product is built to last and suits this development.” The architects for this development were Liverpool based Falconer Chester Hall. The contractors are Berkeley Homes (West London) Ltd, and the contract value was over £500,000.

The top swing windows are from the AuraPlus range with its additional aluminium cladding to protect the timber frames and extend their life in use. John Lewis, regional sales manager for Rationel says: “AuraPlus leaves all the beauty of a natural timber finish on the interior showing off the environmentally friendly raw material largely sourced from FSC forests. The triple glazing in this window range can give U values with best performance 0.79W/m2K.”

SEE THE DIFFERENCE Large residential projects are often a juggling act for developers, trying to balance the need for designs that ensure buildings are constructed efficiently and affordably, with consumer demand for ever-more customisable, spacious homes. Here, REHAU commercial manager Kevin O’Neill looks at how developers and housebuilders can have it all: One size certainly does not fit all when it comes to the specification of windows and doors in a large housing development. Buyers are no longer satisfied to live in a house identical to their

neighbours’; they want a home they can make their own, from choosing their kitchen and bathroom spec to picking their windows and doors. Thankfully, this is now an affordable option for the volume housebuilder using a ‘one house, many facades’ approach. REHAU, for example, offers a range of standardised windows and doors with customisable options which can be tailored to the aspirations of the buyer. Our windows can be customised with over 150 different acrylic, weatherresistant coatings or laminate foils, either in single colour or wood effects. Recently, we have seen increasing demand from

housebuilders for large glazed areas reducing casements and large European style doors, to create the appearance of brighter, lighter living areas. New build properties have been criticised in the past for having smaller dimensions, but with the addition of generous glazing, buyers are given a real wow factor and the impression of space without developers needing to up the square footage. Having windows and doors that appeal to consumer demand for customisable and spacious homes is great, and it doesn’t need to compromise on other features that buyers are looking for. For example, advanced security features,

The VEKA UK Group secures Secured by Design for three more years Industry-leading PVC-U systems supplier, The VEKA UK Group, has been awarded membership once again of the national crime prevention initiative, Secured by Design (SBD), for both its VEKA and Halo brands. The VEKA UK Group partnered with Secured by Design several years ago and has maintained its strong relationship with the team, thanks to a shared ethos of designing out crime at the product development stage. Secured by Design was established in 1989 and works to reduce crime by bringing Police Forces, developers and planners together at the design stage to include security into the built environment.

Telford-based Steel Window Fittings Ltd has joined the Steel Window Association (SWA), the organisation that supports its member companies with a wide-ranging service relating to product development, market research and promotion. The decision by Steel

The VEKA UK Group first to ‘steal a March’ with PAS 24:2016

Find Everything Aluminium in AluFoldDirect’s New Brochure

Window Fittings (swf) to join the UK recognised trade organisation can in part be attributed to the fact that, by meeting the SWA's vigorous standards, the company will be better able to assure new customers that its window accessories and business practices conform to the highest criteria. Indeed, swf has been successfully manufacturing handles, stays, hinges, bolts and openers, as well as safety locks/restrictors and concealed multipoint hardware for metal framed doors and windows, to the commercial and domestic sectors, since 2010; both in the UK and globally.

The VEKA UK Group has announced the transition of its entire range of PVCU window and door products to PAS 24:2016, making it the first BSI Kitemark System Supplier of PVC –U to do so. Accreditation Manager, Mark Barsby explained: “We’ve been in discussions with our forward-thinking customers, BSI and Secured by Design since last July to ensure VEKA and Halo products meet the updated enhanced security standard, PAS 24:2016. “The standard was published over a year ago and includes a number of changes, particularly related to doors. The previous version – PAS 24:2012 – has now been withdrawn from the BSI website, and while Document Q will continue to reference it for some time, the latest Secured by Design Homes Guide already allows for compliance via the new standard.

‘Everything Aluminium’ is the brilliant new brochure from AluFoldDirect, helping installers show their customers what can be achieved in aluminium doors and windows. “We’ve listened to what installers want and created an incredible coffee-table brochure with stunning installation photos, so people can see the possibilities in aluminium windows and doors,” says Craig Miller, Managing Director at AluFoldDirect. The ‘Everything Aluminium’ brochure features the full AluFoldDirect aluminium range including bi-folding doors, sliding doors, slimline windows, roof lanterns, RD1 Entrance Doors and commercial windows and doors. Craig continues: “It’s important that the brochure reflects the quality of the aluminium products we make, to help our customers win business. From the choice of paper to the selection of project images, everything about the brochure makes readers feel inspired to choose aluminium.”

energy efficiency or insulation against noise pollution. Your glazing supplier will be able to tell you the special features of the products you are buying, and make recommendations based on your individual requirements and priorities. Installation time is also changing – as windows and doors can now be fabricated, customised and built into the pre-facade off site speeding up the build process and reducing costs. This way, there doesn’t need to be any delay in the build schedule to provide additional window or door options to customers. The products are made up to specification and arrive on site installed, in either panel or

modular form, a method currently popular for education, hotels and leisure facility projects. Choosing the right products for a development and specification in line with standards and regulations, may seem like an overwhelming task, but rest assured help is available. REHAU windows were recently specified and installed by SEH Commercial for the Beaufort Park development in Hendon. The neighbourhood created by St George, part of the Berkeley Group, will include over 3,200 homes once completed. To help with the window specification REHAU worked with St George to present the new flush fitting window from REHAU’s TOTAL70 range. St George loved the aesthetics and performance of the windows and decided to specify it for the next two phases of construction (389 homes). The flush fitting option is the latest example of the versatile REHAU TOTAL70 product, which can be used to fabricate what we believe is the widest range of window and door styles in PVC-U. www.rehau.uk/windows

This diverse range of high-quality timber internal doors not only offers homeowners a range of stylish door leaves, but it comes as complete doorsets to allow for quick and simple application onsite. Whether modern or traditional, glass or timber, this diverse range of high-quality timber internal doors comes available with a choice of fixtures and fittings. This not only helps save the homeowners time sourcing parts, such as hinges, handles and architrave, it saves the cost of hiring a specialist joiner, making this way of buying a new door for your home one of the most cost effective and convenient. With four distinct collections to choose from, this range of doors offers something for every style and budget. The BaseLine series has been designed with individuals that are looking to create a timelessly elegant finish in mind. The solid door leaf is available in either a flush or rebated version, as well as in five high-quality surface finishes. The DesignLine collection within this range offers those that want to create the door of their dreams the opportunity to do just that. With a variety of different style elements, such as stainless steel embellishments or recessed grooves, to real wood veneer or paint, this collection satisfies the highest demands and helps add a sense of style to any room.

Both the BaseLine and DesignLine ranges are available in the high-quality Duradecor surface finish. Duradecor features heat and impact resistance, robustness and low levels of maintenance, making it one of the best performing internal door finishes on the market. As well as this, both the BaseLine and DesignLine styles are available as apartment entrance doors with features to help protect against the noise and cold from outside, and as TechnicLine doors with specialised RC2 security equipment for extra peace of mind. In addition to the DesignLine, BaseLine and TechnicLine doors, Hörmann has recently introduced two more styles into the range. ConceptLine models offer simple sophistication in eye catching gloss, ultra matt and slate surface finishes, whilst the GlassLine series instantly transforms any house by giving it a feeling of openness throughout each room, as well as a sophisticated and chic appearance. Hörmann is world renowned for producing quality doors, and this latest range of timber internal doors is an example of just that.

Professional wall preparation with Dunlop Pro Décor fillers & smoothers

. www.McDermottPublishing.com . March 2017 .

Dunlop, specialist manufacturer of decorating fillers and smoothers, is providing builders with great filing technology to provide a superior finish prior to decorating in a faster time than ever before. Dunlop Pro Décor fillers and smoothers are formulated with ground-breaking Hydroloc TM technology which cuts out the problems associated with more traditional repair products such as slow drying times, slumping or cracking. 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 product dries evenly,

regardless of thickness, within 24 hours. 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, making drying times more consistent.    There are a number of products in the Pro Décor range to cater for the variety of repair work that tradespeople may face before decorating, from its Fine Surface Filler for skim coats to its Deep Filling Compound that can repair damage up to 80mm deep and can be painted in two hours. Dunlop has also launched a revolutionary decorator’s caulk - Dunlop Flexible Acrylic Filler – a non-crack and non-craze product perfect for filling skirting boards and window frames. Another recent addition to the range is Dunlop Rapid Rescue Repair Filler. Available in handy 1kg bags, Rapid Rescue can fill damage up to 50mm deep and is fully dry in only 90 minutes for quick emergency repairs. www.dunloptrade.com/decorating www.mclink.co.uk/1019-572 ENQUIRY-Card 572

It can be used indoors and outdoors with excellent gap filling properties that accommodate uneven surfaces, and is resistant to both water and temperatures of up to 70oC. “When it comes to choosing an adhesive, we learnt from independent research that over 80% of tradespeople want instant hold, no pinning and no slippage,” said Sam Brockley, Product Manager for EVO-STIK’s trade grab adhesives. “We’ve listened to this feedback and, building on GRIPFILL’s unrivalled performance for strength build-up, we’ve developed a new high strength, instant grip adhesive that will stick virtually anything to anything without the need for pinning.”

Yeoman Shield keeps walls fit & healthy at Fife Leisure Centres With the responsibility of 14 leisure centres in the region, Fife Sports & Leisure Trust have the continual duty to keep their venues damage free and presentable to the public whilst keeping a close eye on the maintenance budgets. As part of the maintenance and refurbishments of their centres Fife Sports & Leisure looked to Yeoman Shield for a solution to the continual marking and damaging of walls. Caused by the every-day use of the facilities, by

visitor footfall, the movement of cleaning equipment and the use of sports apparatus, the resulting damage can be expensive to repair. Yeoman Shield’s 2.0mm thick FalmouthEx wall protection panels at

1250mm high were installed by Yeoman Shield’s directly employed fixing operatives to walls in corridors, sports halls, gyms and changing areas in 5 of Fife Sports & Leisure Trust Gyms. These were complemented with the fitting of Yeoman Shield Corner Protection Angles to vulnerable corners. FalmouthEx panels are manufactured using Vinylac, a specially formulated PVCu material that is developed to be resistant to impact and abrasion, which is exclusive to Yeoman Shield products. Once the panels are in place, the walls will be protected from every day wear and tear for many years to come, halting the expensive cycle of repair and redecoration. Easy to clean the wall panels are inherently hygienic and as they are a

rigid PVC do not support the growth of bacteria or mould. Due to Yeoman Shield’s extensive colour range the leisure centres were able to choose colours that fitted in with the environment, either blending in with colour schemes or used to denote different zones of the sports centres. “We are very pleased with the outcome of fitting the Yeoman Shield wall protection which I can see will save us money on maintenance throughout the centres over the years to come.” commented Gym Manager, Stuart Bizzarri. “The choice of colours has enabled us to bring the centres to life, with the easy clean, protective surfaces helping to maintain a pristine image for our clients.” For more information on Yeoman Shield wall & door protection products or to order a new product brochure go to www.yeomanshield.com or call 0113 279 5854. www.mclink.co.uk/1019-576 ENQUIRY-Card 576

Internal Walls, Floors & Ceilings 57 many traditionally used finishes, such as ceramic tiles which can provide a breeding ground for bacterial growth.

Restaurant Zwanzig-Zehn, Hemer, Germany

The EU food safety guidelines say that every food business operation must ensure food safety is never compromised. The layout, design and construction of food premises must prevent the accumulation of dirt and the shedding of particles. Floors, walls, ceilings, windows and doors must have impervious, non-absorbent and washable surfaces. All surfaces should be maintained in a sound condition, and therefore be easy to clean and disinfect. This will require all surfaces to be smooth, washable, corrosionresistant and made from non-toxic materials.

Don’t slip up on choosing flooring Safety, hygiene, cost and comfort – there’s a lot to consider when it comes to kitchen flooring, says Glen Lister, Altro’s Key Account Manager, Food & Drink. Flooring in commercial kitchens and food preparation areas needs to work hard, with safety top of the list. However, keeping people safe is about more than slip-resistance and cleaning, it’s also about preventing surfaces from harbouring bacteria. Cost and comfort will also feature high on the agenda when it comes to choosing kitchen flooring. Risks and realities The commercial kitchen can be a dangerous place. Oil evaporates into the air and settles on the floor when it cools – requiring constant cleaning to prevent a slippery surface. Small spills like milk Kings School

or flour could cause a very real slip hazard. A busy lunch hour would mean a lot of oil and cooking ingredients on the floor, and not enough time to keep the floor clean and hazard-free at all times. The law requires that employers ensure the health and safety of all employees, which is why safety flooring is a popular choice in commercial kitchens. However, there’s more to choosing the right safety flooring than meets the eye. It’s well worth spending a little time to understand the mechanics of safety flooring because getting it wrong can be costly in many, many ways.

Understanding slip-resistance Safety flooring in the UK is often given a PTV – Pendulum Test Value – to show the level of slip-resistance it provides. Wet flooring that measures PTV ≥36 translates to a one in a million chance of slipping and is classed as having a low slip potential. However, the contaminant used for this test is water – perfectly suitable for most areas, but as you’ll know well, not commercial kitchens. For this reason, we put safety flooring to a real-world test, using a variety of common contaminants found in a commercial kitchen. We used the standard PTV pendulum test BS7976 to test a range of typical kitchen contaminants, using three of our safety floors, all classed as having a low slip potential. As expected, all three performed well with clean water as the contaminant, but when it came to greasy washing up water or vegetable oil, safety flooring that meets the ‘low slip potential’ figure of PTV ≥36 saw a hugely increased risk of slipping of just 1 in 20. Only the specialist safety flooring with our highest PTV of ≥55 continued to provide a 1 in a million risk of slipping. Your chosen flooring needs to be able to perform against wet and dry contaminants and provide sustained lifetime slip resistance, so consult the slip-resistance figures and ask tough questions about performance over time. You need confidence that your chosen flooring will continue to perform like new, year after year after year. Hygiene matters The surfaces you choose for kitchens and food preparation areas must meet exceptionally high health and safety and food hygiene standards – increasingly this spells problems for

HACCP is an international system for food safety management. It is a legal requirement in Europe under EC Regulation 852/2004. To conform to HACCP standards, excellent hygiene and rigorous cleaning routines are essential, and surfaces must be impervious to bacteria ingress and easy to clean to prevent contamination. We recommend using a system designed to work together, such as Altro Stronghold safety flooring and Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding – both of which are HACCP approved. Trinity College

Consider long term costs Cost, of course, is a constraint, but consider life cycle costs as well as installation processes. Downtime costs money, so ease and speed of installation are key, choose products designed to minimise downtime and cause the least disruption to busy kitchens and production runs. For the same reasons consider durability – fit products that are manufactured to perform to a high standard over a long period of time even in the most demanding environments. Comfort matters Specialist safety flooring tough enough for commercial kitchens will also be thicker than standard safety flooring. Look for 3mm thick rather than 2mm and you’ll see a range of additional benefits including reduced staff fatigue, noise reduction and comfort underfoot.

Both CaberDek and CaberShieldPlus use the same P5 moisture-resistant particleboard but also feature further added benefits meaning the floor can be laid even before the roof is installed. CaberDek has a non-slip protective film to prevent damage to the board from following wet trades – such as plastering and painting. The film takes all the dirt and damage away with it, leaving a pristine floor surface ready to accept carpet or other finish.

Based on Norbord’s popular moistureresistant CaberFloor P5 tongue-andgroove particleboard flooring panel, CaberShieldPlus is specially designed to withstand exposure to wet conditions.

In most new-build projects, the upper floors of a house will be installed before the roof goes on with the inevitable result that the new floor is left open to the elements for days or even weeks. CaberDek’s protective film prevents rain and frost damage to the new floor surface as well as providing a safe nonslip working surface for the construction team. CaberBoard launches particleboard campaign 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 ads combine to spread the word about Norbord’s marketleading flooring panels.
