How to help homeowners improve their Property’s Curb Appeal When working on a property, you may spot a few areas that if renovated, could help to increase the overall value of the home. From dressing up the front door to improving the look of window frames, there are a variety of ways in which trade professionals can help property owners to renovate the exterior of their homes. The focal point of any property is the front door and so this is a good place to start when suggesting exterior improvements. A fresh coat of paint and a new number or house sign will rejuvenate the overall appearance of the entrance. Another way to update the look of a house is by installing new door furniture such as door knockers, door handles and knobs. For PVC doors for instance, nickel or chrome accessories, such as the Ring Door Knocker in Polished Chrome, work well as they can create a modern feel. You may also want to suggest that homeowners pay particular attention to window frames. For example, it is important to ensure that frames are properly sealed. If the current seals are worn, they should be replaced to prevent any further damage to the window. Aquamac seals are ideal for use

on timber windows and stay looking good for years as they are manufactured using a water repellent foam that is unaffected by rot, mould or mildew. For UPVC windows, Q-Lon seals are the perfect alternative. By suggesting suitable ways for homeowners to make the exterior of their property look more appealing, they are likely to come to back to you again for their home improvement needs.

Approved Cavitrays Assured Protection

When selecting a cavity tray to protect a stepped or staggered gable abutment, choosing one that has been successfully tested and awarded European Technical Approval makes good sense. And when the tray is also accompanied with a performance warranty, it brings peace of mind. Both these benefits are offered by Cavity Trays of Yeovil. The tray for gable abutments is called the Type X cavitray, and it incorporates features not available from alternative manufacturers. Type X cavitrays are available for straight and curved walls, in dimensions to suit brickwork, block work and reconstructed / natural stone. The cavity upstand of every tray is

adjustable, so it accommodates a wide range of cavity widths, including the asbuilt cavity width as opposed to the asintended! This feature ensures compatibility. The flashing is already cut, shaped and bonded onto the tray at the factory. Once the cavitray has been built in the flashing just requires dressing. For convenience short flashings are offered to dress over the upstand of secret gutters or soakers, and long flashings for dressing directly over profiled tiles. Recent comparisons made with alternatives identified the flashings on ETA approved Type X cavitrays always cover the full length of the tray and offer greater cover and protection. Cavity Trays has a history dating back to the 1920’s and its proven track record is evident by the extensive range of preformed products it offers, all designed to protect the building envelope. With a next-day delivery service, ETA approved cavitrays with a performance warranty can be on your doorstep tomorrow. Cavity Trays of Yeovil ENQUIRY-Card 500

Crown Trade Clean Extreme -The Solution

If you’re looking for a high performance coating that will stand the test of time and keep a longlasting ‘just finished’ appearance, then Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt really measures up.

For Wonder Walls


You can have confidence in a system that’s been tested to the max in demanding laboratory conditions, and delivered a timeproven finish in some of the busiest areas across the UK. These qualities make Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt the ideal choice for a wide-range of facilities, including schools, universities and student accommodation, as well as nurseries, offices, hospitals, leisure facilities and housing association properties. Its high technology formulation provides a surface that is not only wipeable, but has the real bonus of offering a truly scrubbable finish. Marks and stains can be easily removed to ensure an attractive look is in place for the long term. This ensures a ‘just painted’ appearance is maintained, and surfaces are returned to their pristine condition time and time again. A special polymer gives Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt its tough surface film and built-in stain resistance. Most marks and stains will not penetrate and can be easily wiped away with water. Scrubbing with a cloth soon gets rid of tougher soiling, and for deep-seated stains, scrubbing with a mild detergent will eliminate all traces. These actions leave no burnish

marks and appearances are maintained because of the unique qualities of the paint formulation, which gives Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt its totally sheen-free finish, even after repeated scrubbing with wet or dry cloths. The amount of paint film sacrificed each time soiling is removed is minimal, and when tested under ISO 11998 - the industry standard method to determine the wet scrub resistance of a dry paint film – Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt achieved Class 1 less than 5 microns of paint film thickness were lost after a painted test panel coated was subjected to 200 simulated cleaning cycles on a scrub testing machine. That equates to a 400 per cent increase in resistance to wet scrubbing when compared with conventional matt emulsion. To highlight the system’s qualities, Crown Trade has produced a video available to view at https://www user/CrownTradeTV For more details please contact the Crown Trade Customer Relations Team by calling 0845 389 9583, emailing or visiting the website at ENQUIRY-Card 504

Fast solution to design & engineering problems

Wraptite used externally achieves airtightness of 0.87

Blue Diamond Technologies specialises in solving design, engineering and manufacturing problems for its customers. Its scope of supply includes machined components, metal parts, turned and cast parts, plastic components and sub assemblies, for applications as diverse as submersible pumps, domestic showers, vending machines and temporary buildings. “Customers are often unaware that “Real Life” prototypes can be produced quickly and cost-effectively” said Mike Doel, Director, Blue Diamond Technologies. “As it is frequently the case that only by trying and testing a solid prototype can fit and function be truly evaluated, enabling a customer to get his hands on such a prototype speedily is of immense benefit”. Blue Diamond can produce a solid metal/plastic “Real Life” model within a 12 – 14 day turnaround.

Kingspan Timber Solutions is committed to the future of airtightness, and has built a timber frame constructed show home in Cambridgeshire to achieve CSH Level 5. In many constructions, about half of all heat loss is due to air leakage through the building. Given that approximately half of all energy used in the UK is from buildings, it is easy to see that air leakage, or draughts, account for a considerable amount of energy - and therefore cost. The target was to reach Code for Sustainable Homes level 5, with an air tightness result of 1. Attention to detail and workmanship, followed by a rigorous testing process ensures that what is designed is built, and what is built performs as it was designed. This is achieved primarily through a fabric first approach. Wraptite-SA, from A Proctor, was used as the airtight solution as it combines important properties of vapour permeability and airtightness in one selfadhering membrane.

Carry on building If the builder has one enemy, it is the weather. Bricklayers know that if conditions are freezing, they will not be working. However, with the Durisol block method of construction, work can continue as planned with no delays. With the Durisol walling units, no mortar is required. The blocks are simply dry stacked then filled with concrete to create the finished wall. Insulation is incorporated into the blocks at the manufacturing stage, obviating the need for any additional work on site. All this combines to bring to the industry an extremely quick method of wall construction. The block itself is made from softwood shreds that come from pallets or waste from a sawmill, which is then mixed with a cementitious compound, and pressed into a mould. The resultant curing process produces a block that is lightweight and strong, and has inherent insulation qualities.

Four width options are available. The 170mm variant is mainly used for internal structural walls or in applications where there is a sound attenuation requirement, while the 250mm wide option can be used for internal party walls, retaining walls and for below ground construction such as basements where a greater width of concrete core might be required. For the outer walls of a construction, the 300mm and 365mm widths would be specified. These have the added benefit of pre-installed PIR insulation or Graphite polystyrene to further enhance the insulation values. No special skills are needed to construct the building using the Durisol system, and there is no need for specialist tools or equipment. ENQUIRY-Card 508

However, it is not commonly appreciated that LEDs, despite being energy efficient, do have a relatively high surge on switching.

Ideal for traditional and modern buildings in both new build and refurbishment applications, the new, lightweight Cyclone range offers a costeffective alternative to plastic gutters, with the strength and longevity of a steel system. With no risk of shrinking, leaking or colour fading over its guaranteed life, the steel system is easy to install with no specialist tools or skills required. In addition, very little maintenance is needed, only the general industry recommended twice yearly cleaning of any debris collected in the gutter, and washing down with warm soapy water. Steel rainwater systems are the material of choice for Scandinavian markets and as such are robust enough for use in extreme weather conditions and temperature ranges. The Cyclone range is coated with a high build polyester paint “Prelac Nova RWS� produced by SSAB, combining the benefits of polyester coatings, which ensure resistance to corrosion, and the merits of galvanized steel, which provides high strength. The range is available in a choice of three standard colours from stock including black, silver metallic and white, all of which are UV protected so will not fade or crack. The gutter profile is half round in sizes 100, 125 and 150mm with a deeper flow capability. Rainwater downpipes and fittings are available in 75, 87 and 100mm diameters.

The Cyclone range is available throughout the UK through national and local distributors.

and offers a quality rainwater and gutter solution competitive with plastic and lower in cost than aluminium. The Cyclone system is lightweight and easy to install, as most components simply push together, whilst the range of colours available helps to enhance the external characteristics of a building.� For more information on the new Cyclone range, visit ENQUIRY-Card 514

Guardian Roof To Unveil

New Sales Software

February 2015: Staffordshire-based Guardian Roof will unveil new sales software for members of its Team Guardian Registered Installer Scheme later this month. The new software will improve Team Guardian installers’ efficiency and conversion rates; plus help increase capacity for Team Guardian fabricators.

Developed exclusively for Guardian Roof by RoofWright, the software can produce an infinite number of designs using over 200 unique templates and five Metro tile designs. The software also focuses on customer experience and new commercial benefits. It enables Team Guardian installers’ associated retailers to engage

customers directly in the design process using virtually-rendered real-time graphics. And the software offers massive time savings; allows for instant precise pricing of jobs; and, features structural checks to guarantee the integrity of each job. Further process time savings are predicted to transform fabrication capacity. For Guardian Roof, Ross Darcy said, “Just like anyone who purchases a Guardian Roof replacement sold roof system, our Team Guardian members expect the very best professional service and customer experience. The new software is easy to use and gives our registered installers everything our customers expect of the UK market leader. “Times are changing. And I think that some fabricators and installers who fail to keep pace with new technology risk getting left behind. I remember the bad old days when it was all faxes, random emails and back-of-a-fag-packet cost calculations. You just can’t get away with that any more. “As an industry we've all come so far. And our new software represents the latest chapter. The software communicates exactly what everyone needs to know at every point in the process and adds even more exclusive value for our Team Guardian members.” Last year Guardian Roof launched a new

Team Guardian membership drive targeting a total of 200 accredited installers by 2016. In less than four years, Team Guardian has already established a network of 23 fabricators and over 150 team guardian installers throughout the UK. But demand for the first solid roof system with LABC and LABSS approval has seen enquiries increase in 2014 by over 200%. A Guardian Warm Roof is best installed by a registered Team Guardian installer. The scheme is designed to allow homeowners verify Team Guardian Registered Installers, and prevent competitors falsely claiming to supply the patented roof system. In addition to the right to install Guardian Roof and access the new software, Team Guardian Registered Installers enjoy additional exclusive benefits including full training; sales models; official Team Guardian ID’s and lanyards; promotion on the Guardian Warm Roof website; and crucially, leads from a local fabricator.

Get long term thermal insulation with Everbuild Thermofoam

Beautifully Bespoke Rooflights from Lumen Lumen Rooflight is the UK’s leading manufacturer of bespoke rooflight products, with stunning high quality rooflight designs to suit virtually every application. From the size and number of opening or fixed casements, through to a wide choice of glazing specification, paint colours, opening mechanisms and liners – the possibilities are endless. Whether a rooflight is required to exactly fit the unique underlying structures of an historic building or to complement an innovative modern design, Lumen bespoke rooflights, with their fine lines of steel and tailor-made proportions add that special finishing touch to any contemporary, conservation, commercial or domestic project. ENQUIRY-Card 111

Heat can escape from buildings through windows, doors and other wall break through points, wasting energy and reducing efficiency. Thermofoam is a new, highly flexible PU expanding foam from Everbuild, specially formulated to absorb movement, giving an air tight seal to reduce heat loss and in turn improving energy efficiency in buildings. With global warming being one of today’s biggest concerns, all new buildings must be tested for air permeability ensuring the air tightness of the structure is up to standard. Any heated air lost though gaps and cracks must be replaced requiring additional energy, reducing efficiency and increasing carbon emissions which have been closely linked to global warming. Thermofoam has been tested to the latest standard and is not only air permeability tested to EN12114:200-03 but also acoustic rated to EN ISO 717-1 up to 64Db, temperature resistant (-40 to 80°C) and finally fire rated to ISO 13501 Class E.

Selected for its universal fix across all applications, FIX-R Liquid Waterproofing from SIG Roofing came to the rescue of Lancashire-based roofing contractors, Young & Co., when faced with inclement weather on a housing project in Manchester. Mark Watson at Northwards Housing explains: “SIG Roofing recommended the FIX-R liquid plastic over-coating system to me at design stage and one of the factors which appealed to me in considering whether to use this product was its ability to be applied during most weather conditions. As well as its appeal of a universal fix, we were also drawn to FIX-R Liquid Waterproofing for its costeffectiveness.� Suitable for new build, repair and refurbishment projects - and even appropriate for balconies, terraces and walkways - FIX-R Liquid Waterproofing is a single liquid hybrid polymer system that is Isocyanurate free and contains no solvents.

A close working relationship with suppliers has enabled leading housebuilder Ben Bailey Homes to create £0.5m+ contemporary styled homes in one of the UK’s most historic areas. The Royal Forest development in Huntington on the outskirts of York is adjacent to a listed building, and a nature reserve. To attain planning consent, Ben Bailey Homes worked closely with its preferred flat roofing supplier Protan to devise a scheme that was aesthetically pleasing but did not impinge on the distinct character and vista of the area. As a result, the five two-storey properties making up a cul-de-sac on the 59-home development have flat roofs constructed from Protan SE1.6mm single ply membrane; the effect integrates with almost 50% of the rest of the site, where house styles also feature Protan flat roofs, but at single storey level.

Festool Unplugged A New Generation of Independence

The new and exciting launch of Festool Unplugged sees the brand develop its cordless offering. A combination of new 5.2Ah high-performance battery packs with brushless EC-TEC motors guarantees excellent results every time. Plus the introduction of PowerSelect offers users more buying freedom and flexibility.

5.2Ah batteries – work for 25% longer The improved battery range sees all 15V and 18V batteries increasing from 4.2Ah to 5.2Ah, meaning the tradesman can work 25% longer between charges.

Makita’s new slimline ‘Brushless’ Angle Grinders Makita introduces two updated cordless angle grinders to the market leading 18v Lithium-Ion tool range. The new Makita DGA454 115mm 4 ½” and DGA504 125mm 5”angle grinders are both powered by high torque brushless motors and feature an improved forced airflow system. This drives clean air from the base of the tool over the controller and through the motor body for motor performance and long-life reliability. Removable air intake gauze filters are now fitted for motor protection and simple off- machine cleaning. This improved ‘brushless’ motor performance is now married to an electronic constant speed control system that maintains the wheel speed for optimum operation, irrespective of the load being experienced by the wheel drive transmission. The high torque motor of the DGA545 and 504 grinders will therefore keep the grinding wheel in action where other grinders would stop.

JSP's Shield™ badge of identity has become ever more important in recent years owing to the increasing proliferation of cheap, illegal, counterfeit helmets in international circulation that do not meet the requirements of British and European Standard EN397.

30 Tools, Site Equipment & Workwear

110v sander from Mirka makes light work of sanding A new lightweight 110 volt sander is being launched by abrasives specialist Mirka, enabling builders and construction workers to sand on site effectively. The 110v DEROS comes as standard in a yellow Mirka case with 125mm and 150mm backing pads. A Deco Solution Kit is also available and includes the standard 110v DEROS sander plus a four metre hose and a variety of the patented Abranet 150mm discs in packs of 10. The DEROS sander plugs into a

110v power supply allowing users to meet site regulations. It is suitable for multiple sanding operations delivering a rapid, economical, consistently powerful performance comparable to a conventional 500W electric machine, even under heavy load. The sander has a ‘closed construction’ which prevents dust from

entering the motor, avoiding typical wear and tear damage experienced by electric machines, prolonging its lifespan and making it low maintenance. DEROS’ low profile keeps the hand close to the surface to be sanded, delivering good control over the sanding process. Its long body encompasses a twohand ergonomic grip effective for heavy sanding applications, minimising vibration levels and reducing arm fatigue, which decreases the risk of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome. The sander also has a soft start function, a built-in electronic motor brake and a smooth, easy to operate level to control and maintain a constant motor speed. An innovative backing pad acts like a seal to minimise air leakage between the pad and the shroud, making dust extraction more efficient. As with all Mirka electric sanders the 110v DEROS comes with a 2+1 year warranty when registered online. The 110v DEROS Deco Solution kit is priced at £429.00 and, for a limited period, an additional yellow case is offered free of charge. ENQUIRY-Card 537

Hitachi Power Tools’ new 10.8V kit provides two low weight, high spec options in one great package Hitachi Power Tools has launched the KC10DFL2 two-piece 10.8V cordless tool kit, designed to give users tougher, faster and more advanced drill and impact driver options. THE KIT INCLUDES: the powerful DS10DFL2 drill/driver and WH10DFL2 impact driver, both of which are low in weight and feature a slim, soft grip handle for comfortable use. Both power tools also feature an automatic trigger-operated LED light, useful in tight, confined spaces and poor visibility. To power the tools, Hitachi has provided two 1.5Ah Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. Li-ion battery technology has a low memory effect and a very slow loss of charge when not in use. A UC10SL2 30 minute charger is included in the kit and everything comes in an all new carrying case. Weighing in at just 1kg, the DS10DFL2 drill/driver is ideal for high volume work, providing maximum torque of 36Nm (hard), with a

drilling capacity in wood of 29mm and 10mm in metal. Meanwhile, the WH10DFL2 impact driver provides 108Nm (hard) maximum torque, with a bolt capacity between M6 and M12. Just like the drill/driver, the impact driver weighs in at just 1kg and is ideal for high volume work in tight spaces. “Our 10.8V KC10DFL2 two-piece kit offers users a lower weight package for high volume work,” explains Simon Miller, Brand Manager at Hitachi Power Tools. “As with many of our cordless power tools, this kit also carries the three year warranty promise when the tools are registered online within four weeks of purchase, giving extra value and peace of mind to users.” ENQUIRY-Card 538

From Seed to Substrate: Kemper System Showcases Sustainable, Odourless Liquid Waterproofing at Ecobuild 2015 Liquid waterproofing specialist, Kemper System, will be showcasing its comprehensive range of BBAcertified Kemperol liquid roofing and waterproofing systems on Stand S3090 at this year’s Ecobuild (3-5 March 2015), along with its Stratex warm roof and KemperGro green roof systems.

The only cost effective, solvent-free and completely odourless cold liquid applied waterproofing system available in the UK, Kemperol 2K-PUR will, once again, take centre stage on Kemper System’s Ecobuild stand. Around 80% of the applied polyols (or resins) in Kemperol 2K-PUR are obtained from the seeds of the tropical castor plant (Ricinus communis) a renewable

resource. Perfect for use on sustainable construction projects and ideal for live projects on occupied buildings, such as schools, hospitals, food factories or office buildings, Kemperol 2K-PUR allows work to take place without the need for evacuation or closure, avoiding the disruption associated with the strong odours and fumes from many ‘low-odour’ or solvent-based products. Stratex from Kemper System will also be on show at this year’s Ecobuild. An integrated warm roof that offers exceptional performance, Stratex is supplied as a complete system of matched components - vapour barrier, insulation and waterproofing. It is equally suited to concrete, timber and metal decks on new build projects as it is to refurbishing and upgrading existing roofs. Stratex is also ideal as a complete warm roof solution below an extensive green roof. Kemper System’s KemperGro green roof system will also be among the products on show at Ecobuild, bringing together a unique combination of recycled, renewable and sustainable components to provide a complete waterproof roofing and green roof system with a single source specification. Designed to provide

a solution to meet local climatic conditions, aspect, biodiversity and specifier preference, KemperGro can be custom-specified to meet any requirements. First used at Volkswagen’s Baunatal factory in 1964, where more than 300,000sqm of roof surface have since been waterproofed, Kemper System’s Kemperol V210 completes the company’s Ecobuild showcase. Kemperol V210 has been particularly effective at the factory in areas where ponding occurs owing to inadequate falls and continues to perform effectively to this day. Comments UK marketing manager of Kemper System, Stuart Hicks: “Our product range is designed primarily for use in new build, maintenance and refurbishment projects. Kemper System’s waterproofing and surfacing products have protected billions of square metres of roofs around the world over the past 50 years, including some of the world's most important landmarks, iconic buildings, public and commercial properties.

Wolf Systems showcases Horizon BIM Software

Vectaire will be introducing Saniflo exhibits at Ecobuild Exciting new products from One of the leading names in the RWC and SharkBite the EVO250DC at Ecobuild.

Timber frame, trussed rafter and floor designers who need to collaborate on BIM projects should make a visit to Wolf Systems top of their list at Ecobuild 2015. The company, which specialises in the manufacture of products and software for timber engineering and design, will be demonstrating its Horizon BIM software on stand N5020 in the BIM section of the Sustainable Design and Construction Hall. Horizon software is the UK’s only timber frame tool built on Autodesk’s leading Revit Structure platform. Developed by Wolf Systems in-house software team, it draws on the company’s extensive expertise in timber frame design and timber engineering. The result is a system that allows timber frame designers to quickly and easily create intelligent 3D objects that represent physical building details such as wall panels, floors and roof trusses. Stand N5020.

It is the newest in Vectaire’s ever increasing and innovative range of Whole House Heat Recovery Units. This is an in-line model, just 250mm deep, and suitable for installation in homes and offices providing low level continuous ventilation in a kitchen and up to six wet rooms. It has an energy efficient EC motor, and is an efficient, low energy/low running cost solution to controlling condensation and pollution. It has up to 79% heat exchange efficiency (with SFP down to .71 w/l/s) an integral frost-stat and summer bypass, and an integral over-run timer on boost setting with the option of a delay-on timer. It is available for left or right handing, with or without a humidistat. Stand N2182

This is the first time the company has booked its own stand at the show; a decision that was taken following the launch of the company’s latest product, the Sanicubic XL. This pumping station – which can handle 40m³ of grey water waste per hour - offers the company a real opportunity to provide waste solutions for large, commercial projects and the Ecobuild show provides the perfect platform to showcase not only the new unit, but also a wider range of Saniflo products that are already finding favour in commercial projects throughout the UK. Stand N7141

Visitors to this year’s Ecobuild will be able to find Reliance Worldwide Corporation (UK) Ltd in an excellent position on stand N3100 beside the North Arena.

Scott Bader Promoting New ‘Fix-Rcryl 10’ Roof Repair GRP Coating System Ecobuild 2015, London, 3- 5 March At the Ecobuild 2015 exhibition, taking place from 3-5 March at the ExCeL conference centre, London, Scott Bader (stand N4038) is promoting Fix-Rcryl 10, a new ‘damp weather’ roof repair and refurbishment GRP coating system, showcased alongside its BBA approved CrysticROOF range for manufacturing new GRP flat and pitched roofs.

CrysticROOF products are fully compatible with standard roofing materials commonly used such as: OSB3 boards; edge trims; fillets; and flashings. The new FIX-Rcryl 10 repair system is available exclusively in the UK from SIG Roofing, extending the FIX-R range of roofing products. FIX-Rcryl 10 for existing roof repairs The FIX-Rcryl 10 GRP roof coating system comes ‘ready to use’, with no need for the addition of a separate catalyst or mixing. It is a single, cold applied, liquid resin product, used in combination with standard chopped strand glass matting, easily applied by hand with a brush, roller or squeegee. This new repair system has been developed to suit the UK climate, providing an instant waterproof repair seal against

rain. FIX-Rcryl 10 can be used in dry or damp weather conditions and ambient temperatures ranging from 5 °C up to 25 °C. According to Scott Bader, FIXRcryl 10 is a quick and cost effective option for roofing contractors looking to make durable, strong and reliable weather resistant repairs or refurbishments to a wide variety of pre-installed flat and pitched roofs. It can be used to make repairs to most commonly used roofing materials including: bituminous surfaces, guttering, brickwork, asbestos, concrete, felt, metal, timber and fibreglass. The base resin and coating technology in FIX-Rcryl 10 was developed for SIG Roofing by Scott Bader’s R & D team; the system uses a low odour, low VOC, solvent based acrylic resin, with a high solid content,

formulated to give optimal flexibility and long durability. FIX-Rcryl 10 is manufactured by Scott Bader in its UK plant in Northamptonshire according to ISO 9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001 quality assurance standards, and comes with a 10 year ‘Materials’ guarantee, based on correct installation.

Part 3 for all roof structures and shapes including: flat, valley and pitched roofs, walkways, roof-lights and balconies. When correctly applied, it provides long term UV resistance and weathering performance, remaining watertight and maintenance-free for many years. CrysticROOF ‘BBA Premier’ is only available from a fully trained, Scott Bader accredited CrysticROOF installer, and then comes with a 25 year materials guarantee. The full range of CrysticROOF and FIX-R products, along with high quality trims and ancillaries, are exclusively stocked by SIG Roofing Supplies in the UK and supplied nationally to roofing installers via local SIG outlets. Information about approved installers, local suppliers, plus brochures and videos about how to apply CrysticROOF is all available online at or e-mail .

CrysticROOF Range for new flat and pitched roofs During EcoBuild 2015, visitors to the Scott Bader stand will also be able to find out about the CrysticROOF range of coldapplied GRP roofing products, developed specifically for installing new flat and pitched roof designs. CrysticROOF ‘BBA Premier’ is a proven, longlasting, leak-free alternative system to using more traditional roofing materials such as bitumen, felt and lead, and comes with a 25 year guarantee if installed by a certified contractor. It is a fully BBA approved flat roofing system, which now includes a fire resistant (FR) isophthalic topcoat as standard, helpings installers and contractors avoid the risk of not meeting fire safety legislation and building regulations.

Burst pesky system bubbles with Grant UK happy to help DIY SOS: NBB Booster Box provides complete SCHIEDEL ABSOLUT XPert – 1st potable pressure solution Passivhaus certified Chimney System Inta-Vent The Big Build Inta is making trapped wind a thing of the past with a new tool that automatically extracts air bubbles from sealed heating systems using a powerful vortex filtration system. The Inta-Vent Daerator puts paid to common problems in commercial and domestic heating appliances, such as noisy pipes, increased wear on system components, cold spots in radiators and corrosion. The filter works by forcing water in the system to pass through a tight coil of stainless steel mesh, generating a vortex within the the filter body. This action exposes and captures micro bubbles, which then combine and rise before being discharged. As well as reducing the risk of system wear and tear, Inta-Vent increases fuel efficiency by ensuring systems are operating with optimum conditions, increasing both their longevity and dayto-day performance. ENQUIRY-Card 131

A family struck by major health problems has been given a life-changing boost from the popular BBC One television programme DIY SOS: The Big Build presented by Nick Knowles - with a helping hand from Grant UK. Grant UK supplied DIY SOS: The Big Build with a Pro Kitchen/ Utility boiler from its Vortex range and the Grant Solar Thermal system - both crucial to heating the building and providing comfort for the Liversidge family in Rise. The Grant Vortex condensing boiler is one of the most efficient oil-fired boilers on the market and has a built-in stainless steel heat exchanger with a unique turbulator baffle system, which allows the latent heat, normally lost to the atmosphere through the flue, to be usefully extracted. The additional energy recovered means the boiler can operate continuously at much higher efficiency levels, resulting in lower heating and hot water running costs. ENQUIRY-Card 132

The solution to low mains water pressure issues in residential buildings has been developed as a complete, compact modular package thanks to leading pump manufacturer DAB Pumps. Known as the NBB Booster Box, it pressurizes potable water in residential applications and can be set up and installed in a variety of ways to suit the needs of the building and its occupants. Its installer friendly, modular components include a WRAS approved 280 litre tank, choices of a submersible or surface mounted pump, both of which can be fixed speed or more energy efficient variable speed pumps. The range also includes a twin pump duty standby option and a tank extension kit. The dimensions of the Booster Box have been designed to be as compact as possible. ENQUIRY-Card 133

RINNAI space heaters are best for economical warmth-OFFICIAL Rinnai 1004T Energysaver fanned convection powered flue gas fired space heater is designed for use in schools, community centres, libraries, conservatories and churches where they have earned a well deserved reputation for efficiencies in operation and subsequently reduced running costs. Rinnai Energysaver 1004T delivers energy-efficient and consistent warm air without the use of central ductwork or a domestic heating circuit and features easy, quick installation. The Rinnai Energysaver range comprises of fanned convection powered flue models that exceed seasonal thermal heating guidance under Building Regs Part L. Rinnai knows after 30 years of supplying its heaters in the UK, that a major problem in heating a large public space is the pattern of usage, the age of the building and the building envelope materials. For example, a church may be heated for a Sunday service, or possibly a mid week meeting. Then there are occasions when heat is required at fairly short notice. The buildings often have high ceilings, and the size and distribution of occupancy can vary from time to time. Rinnai provides an innovative solution to these issues by heating from the floor up and by modulating gas usage in relation

The UK’s largest manufacturer of Chimney Systems, Schiedel Chimney Systems Ltd., has just launched the ABSOLUT XPert Chimney System with an Integrated Insulated Combustion Air Shaft. Designed for the new generation of airtight homes, Schiedel Absolut XPert is the first Passivhaus certified chimney system worldwide. Air tightness is built into the system. Suitable for use on all fuel types, with its GW3 rated ceramic profiled liner, Absolut XPert offers condensate resistance even after a soot fire. Modern heating technologies place enormous demands on a chimney system. On the one hand, low flue gas temperatures from energy efficient appliances including Gas, Oil and Pellets lead to condensate forming within the chimney. On the other hand, Chimneys used on solid fuel applications must also be capable of withstanding a chimney fire. ENQUIRY-Card 134

to room temperature, enabling Rinnai to provide unparalleled levels of comfort and efficiency. They provide safe, controllable heat with maximum energy efficiency, combined with flexibility of location. Rinnai’s Energysaver Multi space heating systems produce up to 87% efficiencies and can provide any number of BTUs for a given project no matter how large. The Rinnai Energsaver Multi system reverses the traditional principle of heating large spaces as the heated air is thrown out at a habitable level. This ensures that as the hot air rises the actual living space and thus the occupants can enjoy a heated habitable space. The Rinnai Energysaver Multi system also reduces the run time due to the fact that the habitable space is being heated immediately and the occupants of the room are going to start to feel the warmth straight away. In a large space, for example a church with high vaulted ceilings, there is a major problem with conventional convector heaters as the heat will immediately rise to the ceiling. However with a number of Rinnai Energysavers linked through a central time control, the heating can be turned on approximately 30 minutes prior to the building being occupied. This is now a system that is primarily heating the area that people occupy and not heating a vast area of space above. For more information on the RINNAI product range visit ENQUIRY-Card 546

Appy Days New Infinity 880FL Rembrandt Timóleon saves barn from the sledge-hammers Suite From Charlton & Jenrick Property programmes such as Grand Designs or Restoration Man frequently show scenes of building owners or their contractors taking sledgehammers to demolish old properties, so imagine the feelings of the family in Cambridgeshire, who were told that their immaculately restored, Grade II listed home had to be virtually gutted due to a problem with the heating system. Steve Dunn of Pure Plumbing was of the opinion that the existing underfloor heating system needed to be replaced, he had also got past experience of the underfloor heating range manufactured by Timóleon and believed the manufacturer’s systems offered a far more convenient as well as a considerably more economic alternative. ToronFloor presents a rapidly laid and versatile approach to fitting pipework which can be fitted floating over a concrete base as well as across joists or battens.

New to the Infinity range of suites is the 880FL Rembrandt. The surround is hand crafted from the finest Portuguese limestone with carved details that set it apart from many of the simple designs that have become the standard.

Rinnai offers Seaview International Holiday Park a sustainable perspective on water heating with LPG

Four-time winner of the AA Campsite of the Year accolade, Seaview International Holiday Park at St Austell in Cornwall boasts exceptionally high quality shower blocks with a supply of never-ending hot water, courtesy of Rinnai’s condensing Infinity HDC1500i continuous flow water heaters. And the holiday park is seeing significant savings on LPG costs since it changed over from its previous stored hot water system. The five-star holiday park, which provides pitches for tourers through to luxury lodges, extends over 30 acres and

is just 10 minutes walk from sandy Hemmick Beach. Rinnai sales consultant Scott Humphries had been in contact with World Team owner of Seaview International under its Southwest Holiday Parks umbrella for some time and quoted for a new shower block in 2012. A chance visit at the beginning of last season coincided with the breakdown of the old hot water storage system. The wheels were swiftly put into motion and local installer MR Parsons St Austell was called on to install four Rinnai Infinity HDC1500 internal water heaters, which were delivered next day ready to be run on

LPG. It is now 18 months since the installation took place and during that time the Park has seen a considerable reduction in running costs and an improvement in the delivery of hot water provisions ensuring customer satisfaction with holidaymakers -more than 1500 at any one time in peak season. The Rinnai Infinity gives a constant flow of safe hot water at the chosen temperature. Operated by smart inbuilt controls, this ensures that the water heaters deliver temperature accurate hot water eliminating the risk of scalding in instances where the units are used on a secondary return. The temperature can be set above 60°C and will not change-thus helping guard against legionella. Says Seaview’s Sarah Goodwin: “For the past 18 months we have had no complaints about the showers. There’s been no running out of hot water, the temperature is perfect and the hot water flows as soon as the shower is turned on. As well as showers, we also have three baths in the block and no problems at all. In fact, people from the luxury Paddock area have been coming down to use the showers in the new block. We are now hoping to update the Paddock area shower block and put Rinnai units in there, too. “I estimate we have seen a drop in energy consumption of 20-25 per cent which can only be attributable to the new shower block.”

“Rinnai also score massively when it comes to maintenance,” says Parsons. “As long as the sites maintain the electricity to the units at the end of season (infinitesimal amount needed) and they are drained down properly they simply fire straight back up again. With other stored systems we often have to do a lot of work on them, get new parts and even replace them altogether. Rinnai Infinity units are a brilliant solution. A lot of my work is for holiday parks and they really are the ideal system for that application.” Both Rinnai Infinity HDC1500 internal and external models give an energy performance of 105% net efficiency.

Altro increases warranty on Remmers Industrial Flooring 2.5mm safety flooring System Earns it’s Stripes

Essential Insulation Literature Now Available

Super low energy SIPs house ‘riding’ on Marmox Thermoblock

Altro has increased the warranty, sustained slip resistance and life expectancy on its 2.5mm safety flooring ranges after they have proved their resilience and reliability in some of the world’s most testing environments. Altro Designer 25, Altro Unity 25 and Altro Classic 25 now come with the added peace of mind of a 20 year warranty and 25 year life expectancy and sustained slip resistance. Altro’s 2.5mm safety flooring provides a supreme standard of durability. The extra 25% thickness makes it significantly more robust than 2mm safety flooring, with resistance to impact damage, mechanical and physical damage and point loading, as well as enhanced durability for heavy duty areas. Like all Altro safety flooring, the 2.5mm ranges offer sustained slip resistance for the lifetime of the product, keeping your risk of a slip to just 1 in a million.

Remmers Industrial Flooring Systems have been used extensively as part of an expansion project to double the size of the manufacturing area at the Promat BD warehouse. Capeland Industrial Flooring were contracted to install 1800m2 of Remmers flooring system to the new extension that was being built to create additional warehouse space, as well as a requirement for 1200m2 of flooring to the existing machining area which was over 10 years old. The flooring needed to be durable, nonslip and resistant to oils whilst the warehouse floor required a hardwearing, smooth finish suitable for forklift traffic and incorporating a DPM as it was being laid over freshly applied concrete.

The Award Winning Dry Screed As a dry screed flooring system, the award winning ScreedBoard® removes the drying times typically associated with wet screeds. Its dry properties allow floor finishes to be introduced immediately and for other trades to be introduced far sooner in the build, allowing the development to be completed sooner. The risks of “going off” that may occur with wet screed are also removed as ScreedBoard®’s can be stored on site until they are required for installation. Ground and Separating Floors The boards offer significant benefits for both ground and separating floor applications. On ground floors they can help achieve ideal underfloor heating conditions for occupants, on upper floors they can be used for high performance sound proofing or as a

combined heating and sound proofing solution. ScreedBoard®’s low thermal resistance allow them to outperform common floor finishes including wet screeds and chip boards. Specified Sound Proof Flooring ScreedBoard® has recently been installed as the soundproofing insulation in two prestigious student accommodation developments in the UK. 9000m2 of the award winning floor board was installed in 312 apartments at Oxford University. Aberystwyth University was the second student development to receive the  ScreedBoard®  sound proofing treatment and is ideal for the 1,000 students that will stay there from September this year. Optimum living and learning conditions for occupants are delivered via the boards excellent

soundproofing and underfloor heating properties. 100% Recycled Content ScreedBoard® is the only dry screed board featuring 100% recycled content, which is a significant benefit for Architects and specifiers aiming to achieve maximum BREEAM points. It also gives end-users confidence that their home has been built with careful consideration for the environment. No Screws, No Slip Ups Recognised for ease of installation, ScreedBoard®’s unique interlocking edge detail means no screws are necessary when installing the boards. All that is needed is bead of ScreedBoard® adhesive. This feature is hugely beneficial as it reduces the potential for damaging pipes when installing ScreedBoard® on top of an under floor heating system, a genuine risk when using other similar dry screed systems. This can prevent costly remedial work to fix a damaged pipe after an entire floor has been completed. Installers can lay the boards with confidence that the under floor heating will remain undamaged.

Cost Saving On Labour No screws is also a significant cost saving benefit in comparison to other similar dry screed floor boards that require several screws per board to be correctly installed. When extrapolated across an entire project this saves hundreds if not thousands of screws and the labour costs associated with installation. This feature enables floors to be laid quicker and other trades to be introduced earlier in the build, improving the chance that the development will be completed sooner.

Alumasc Facades Chosen For Luxury Warehouse Conversion Alumasc External Wall Insulation (EWI) systems have been specified on the historic Textile Building on Chatham Place in Hackney, resulting in a weather-proof, energy efficient and attractive building exterior being achieved. This urban warehouse redevelopment, offers both residential and commercial space on the site of the former Burberry fashion factory. The refurbishment of

the original Victorian building includes a new build section to the top, providing luxury penthouse living space. Specified by architects Buckley Gray Yeoman and installed by CNJ Plastering, Alumasc’s Swistherm EWI system was installed around all existing elevations of the Textile Building, including the stairwells and courtyard garden areas. The original late 19th century building was of solid brick construction and in

very poor condition. Swistherm was selected for these areas as it could be directly fixed to what was a poor quality substrate. CNJ Plastering and the Alumasc Technical Team worked closely together to ensure the EPS insulation within the system was fixed in a variety of thicknesses to level the variations in the surface and provide the solid and even base required for the application of the final render finish. A further challenge of the scheme related to the high tech new build sections that were being constructed. The aim was to replicate and blend in the rib-type detail on the existing building with the new build element, creating a seamless transition between both parts. Alumasc’s Swisrail EWI system met the design brief on the new build upper levels of the building, as it is ideal for use on framed buildings, complying with NHBC guidelines. Swisrail comprises a series of steel rails and channels, which were used to create a 25mm drained cavity between the insulation and the framed building. The final contemporary finish on both the refurbished and new sections of the building was achieved with Alumasc’s

silicone and mineral renders, coloured white and shades of grey to meet the architect’s specification. John Douglas, director at CNJ Plastering, comments: “The building was in a really sorry state to begin with but, by working with the Alumasc team, we were able to overcome its many problems and create a strong and flat working surface on which to apply the EWI system. “We’ve worked with Alumasc for many years on various projects, and it’s this positive history which made us confident that the Alumasc EWI system specified would cope with the challenges of the scheme. We are delighted to have been involved and are extremely proud of the final result, as are the architect and the client.” Alumasc EWI systems are BBA approved, fully warranted and available with a range of design and specification options, across many building types.

Warm & Peaceful Living above the 24/7 Society Regent Street is having a makeover. Many of its properties are being rejuvenated to keep this sought after area at its very best and a recent example is the conversion of two disused office buildings; Albany House on the corner of Regent St and Mortimer St and another in Mortimer St. These have been redeveloped by the Crown Estate to create twenty four highspec luxury apartments, a stone’s throw away from some of London’s most desirable retail and night life attractions. Being Grade II listed the original single glazed sash windows could not be altered in any way so careful thought had to be given to dealing with traffic noise and the drafts and heat loss associated with older windows. MSMR architects approached Selectaglaze, an original designer of secondary glazing systems, to assist in developing a solution. Secondary windows fitted with a gap of 100200mm will achieve noise reductions of at least 45dB, far more effective than a normal double glazing. The frames are bespoke and tightly sealed which almost eliminates uncomfortable drafts and the use of

thermally efficient low emissivity glass reduces heat loss by more than half to give a U-value of around 1.9. Selectaglaze developed a range of designs to meet the performance requirements and to be sympathetic with the overall design. This included one particularly noisy balcony which was treated with large hinged secondary doors glazed with 10.8mm laminated glass. The inclusion of Selectaglaze Secondary Glazing for both thermal retention and noise insulation contributed towards the properties being awarded an Eco Homes Excellent rating. Established in 1966 and granted the Royal Warrant in 2004 Selectaglaze is the UK’s leading secondary glazing specialist with extensive experience of working in buildings of all styles, including listed properties.

Effective sound insulation is important in ensuring a calm, welcoming kitchen environment and the powerful but exceptionally quiet and efficient 270W brushless motor ensures that the Sinos hood performs to the highest level ridding the kitchen of lingering smells, while operating at a comfortable, industry standard-beating, 42 decibels (dbA). And its low-energy comfort light setting creates subdued and long-lasting ambient lighting in the kitchen area. The Sinos hood has eight operating speeds, plus an ‘intense’ setting for short, powerful bursts to remove unpleasant odours quickly and efficiently.

The Seraphina uses 3-in-1 technology to dispense hot, cold and boiling water from a single tap. As well as saving time, it saves valuable cupboard space, as the hot water tank is slim enough to fit neatly underneath the base unit behind a standard 150mm cabinet plinth. The swan-neck style Seraphina comes in a chrome finish. The tap’s safety button prevents accidental activation and unlike many models, Seraphina has the benefit of incorporating a water conditioning filter in the boiling water unit which ensures the boiling water is free of sediment, odours and unwanted particles.
