Right product for the right job. With the most comprehensive range of macerators, pumps and condensing units on the market, Saniflo is sometimes questioned about why it’s necessary to have so many models, some 30+ in total, many of which seemingly do the same thing. The answer is quite simple. “One size doesn’t fit all.” With over 60 years’ experience in the plumbing sector, every model that Saniflo produces is based on research, investment and customer feedback. The original Saniflo unit was introduced in the UK over 37 years ago to take the waste from a

Festool teams up with charity to promote healthy working environments for UK tradespeople Festool, the leading supplier of high-end power tools and accessories, has teamed up with the British Lung Foundation (BLF) to provide top quality cycling tops as a fundraising initiative. With carpenters four times more likely to contract asthma compared to other workers, Festool have previously promoted the importance of safer dust-free working conditions with the help of the BLF at last year’s W16 exhibition. Hundreds of tradespeople visited the Festool stand for a free drop-in lung health test, with some medical referrals being

made for hospitals to check on possible health issues, with potential ongoing treatment. This next campaign sees Festool releasing a limited edition Festool branded, fully breathable cycling shirt with the words “Breathe Easy with Festool Dust Extraction” and the BLF logo on the back. All profits will go towards the BLF, not only to provide help for those in need, but to also raise awareness of lung health amongst tradesmen who are most at risk of lung problems. www.mclink.co.uk/1021-150 ENQUIRY-Card 150

ARCHES, CAVITY WALLS & PINCH POINTS Rain blown against a cavity wall will gradually permeate the exterior masonry skin and gravitate downwardly. Where the cavity wall incorporates an arched opening, the downward flow is interrupted and water is prevented from permeating in and around the arch opening by a preformed DPC cavitray known as the Type BA (Barrier Arch) . The cavitray is ready-shaped to match the opening design, and arrests the water that is then evacuated out of the structure via caviweeps, normally located both sides of the arch on the springing line - away from the opening itself. However, where a number of arches are linked or the distance between each arch is minimal, the discharge arrangement should be reviewed to prevent water flowing into a converging point – commonly called a restricted

point or pinch. A typical example where review is necessary is where arches rise off columns, mullions, piers or cavity walling where the cavity width reduces. The water needs to be managed so flow to pinch points is minimised. This is achieved by incorporating what is termed an Arresting Barrier. The Type Q Arresting Barrier invisibly reduces water-wash from cavity walling above a given feature or construction detail, and channels it to discharge away from its usual gravitational path. By so doing the residual onward downward water flow is minimised before any feature or construction detail is reached. In the case of multiple arches, the shelter and evacuation benefit of a higher level barrier can commonly result in less than 15% of the original water volume actually reaching converging pinch points. Cavity Trays Ltd of Yeovil is the only UK cavity tray manufacturer awarded European Technical Approval. Water penetration and management advice is available free of charge under its Protecting the Building Envelope service.

The additional door and glass introductions bring the total of Dales Collection front and back composite door combinations to 15 styles in 15 colours and 18 glazing options, from modern ‘chic’ to traditional Edwardian or cottage style. The colours are in three groups: Contemporary, e.g. Anthracite Grey, Slate Grey and Moondust Grey; Standard, e.g. Rosewood, Golden Oak, Frost White and Berry Red; and Heritage, e.g. Eurocell Cream, Chartwell Green and Duck Egg Blue (all made to order).

AD Q sets out what it says are “reasonable standards for doors and windows to resist physical attack by a casual or opportunist burglar by being both sufficiently robust and fitted with appropriate hardware” and effectively excludes non-PAS 24 products from the new build sector. A new accredited five-point multi-locking system with adjustable keeps has been introduced, providing an improved weather rating that can now achieve up to a massive 1200 Pascals – a 50% improvement on previous tests. The new improved design also includes an increase of the outer GRP skin thickness from 2mm to 4mm. The collection is now fitted with the Tri-Sis glazing cassette which can be deglazed internally without damaging the door panel or

affecting the security performance of the door overall. The locking system, plus the thickness and glazing modifications, means that the new doors are all now compliant with the requirements of AD Q; achieving PAS 23/24:2016 accreditation, which includes the challenging PAS 24:2016 ‘Cut Through’ test. Low maintenance design GRP door leaves obviate splits or cracks and are less prone to scratching and denting than steelfaced doors.

Living with an air of calm Apartments are often difficult environments to be acoustically comfortable given the effect of hard surfaces and surrounding neighbours. When located in a city, the problem is often magnified. The solution was to install on the ceiling four floating clouds with Troldtekt Plus acoustic panels which absorb the high frequencies before they bounce around the large room. The way in which they have been arranged is both functionally and aesthetically sensitive. An interesting aspect is new artwork on the walls, using the same fine textured acoustic panels with customer selected motifs. These not only add an interesting decorative element to the room but also subtly increase sound absorption. Troldtekt natural wood wool ceiling panels are widely specified throughout Europe in a range of modern buildings as well as for refurbishing interiors.

Peace of mind protection for construction timbers

Hold your won with Samac performance structural screws

Lonza Wood Protection is launching a new promotional push to highlight the importance of correct preservative treatment of construction and joinery timbers as the building of new homes becomes a priority. A new ‘VAC-VAC is BACK’ campaign to designed to highlight the issue to architects, specifiers and house builders. Andy Hodge, marketing director of Lonza explained. ‘Over the last few years a lot of work has been done by the timber treatment industry to make sure the protection levels of preservative treated fencing and landscaping timbers are where they should be to perform in the most extreme of environments – outdoors and often in direct ground contact.’ ‘But equally important in making sure that timber remains a valued and important construction material choice is reminding important decision makers in the housing industry that timber needs protecting to last an expected 30 or 60 years when used in a new building.’

Fixings specialist Samac is launching the latest addition to its Performance Range of high performance screws – the Performance Structural Screw. Perfect for outdoor projects such as garden structures and sleepers, it is also an ideal structural fixing solution for joining wooden joists and beams. Samac Performance Structural screws have all the top quality features that make fixing soft and hardwoods simple, plus attributes that are especially pertinent to external environments. The Type-17 cut point reduces splitting and minimises the need for pre-drilling, while the milling thread clears the hole of debris and helps to prevent jacking between pieces of timber. The heads are washered and countersunk with a hex drive ensuring a tight, clamped fixing. An ACQ corrosion-resistant coating resists the effects of chemicals used to treat timber and will withstand a minimum of 1000 hours on a salt spray test.

Dramatic wall design at the refurbished Tottenham Court Road Underground Station is reminding the public just how stunning centuries old terrazzo materials can be when specified for walls and floors. Here, TRI Contracting has used terrazzo to restore the iconic Eduardo Paolozzi mosaic work and it is a stunning example of how the material can brighten and interest. everyday life. One of the greatest changes in architectural design in recent years has been the resurgence and use of colour to avoid the drabness of postwar buildings and to exploit the potential of what both traditional and modern materials can offer. For the architect and designer, colour has now become a key component of design rather than a finishing touch. Colour has become another tool; with which to enhance the character and ambience of a building.

Ten out of Ten’ for Resiblock on The 02 Arena - London, 10th Anniversary During the The 02 Arena – London restoration programme in 2007, 12,500 square metres of small element flexibly laid internal paving was installed, and then sealed with Resiblock’s low viscosity thermoplastic-acryl copolymer emulsion, Resiblock Resiecco. Despite being trafficked by approximately 80 million visitors since it’s opening in June 2007, and subjected to an aggressive daily cleaning regime, Resiblock Resiecco continues to stabilise the jointing sand firmly in place whilst also minimising staining from contaminants including food, grease, hot drinks and chewing gum. The 10 year-long success of Resiblock Resiecco at The 02 Arena, London, is another example of the great longevity and durability of Resiblock’s ‘sealing, stabilising, protecting’ products as well as endorsing the confidence that is placed in the Resiblock name.

The products are now live on the BIMStore. The Housebuilder Range encompasses products drawn from Franke and Carron Phoenix to cover all kitchen styles and price points, shaped around the needs of house builders. Says Fiona Bowyer, Marketing Director at Franke: “Assigning BIM codes to each of these products has taken a significant investment of time and resource, but we understand its growing importance to housebuilders to fully plan property design.

One of the country’s oldest established brickworks, located in an idyllic Cotswold village, has updated its production facilities saving not only time and money but significant amounts of energy – thanks to the use of Marmox Multiboards for the refurbishment of its drying chambers.

Investment in new wards at County Hospital Stafford protected by Yeoman Shield County Hospital, Stafford, have invested in 4 new wards which are to be opened throughout the year, offering more patient beds and spacious areas conducive to patient care and staff wellbeing. The first of such wards to be opened is Elderly Care, Ward 15, which - now containing 28 beds with 12 single ensuite rooms, four, four bedded bays, a dedicated rehabilitation/therapy space, counselling and day room – is a great improvement on what was previously available. The ward refurbishment work, run by main contractors Kier Construction, included wall & door protection products from Yeoman Shield which were installed by their own fixing team. To ensure that the investment of time and money made by County Hospital in the re decoration and layout of the new ward was preserved for many years to come, Yeoman Shield Guardian Twin Handrail was fitted to the walls along the bed bay corridor.

contributing to a clean and attractive appearance throughout the unit. The 12, bright and airy, en-suite rooms, colourfully painted, have Yeoman Shield bed head protectors installed on the walls at the head end of the patients bed. This area can be extremely vulnerable to damage caused by beds, drip stands and other medical equipment being wheeled up, too close, to the wall. Yeoman Shield’s stylish Guardian Bedhead protectors at 900mm long in Cream or Grey, were fitted on spacer brackets, standing slightly away from the wall to ensure full protection was given to the plaster painted wall behind. Ward Manager, Julie Woodworth commented “I am extremely proud to be the first ward manager to move in

the refurbished ward. The reaction from the patients and the staff has been absolutely fantastic.” For more information on Yeoman Shield wall & door protection products and how they can save on maintenance budgets go to www.yeomanshield.com or call 0113 279 5854.

International mark of quality for Iso-Chemie’s tape

NMBS, is another success for Everbuild - A Sike Company

LEADING European foam tape manufacturer ISO-CHEMIE has won an international quality award for its sealing tape ISO-BLOCO 600. The tape, which can seal joints up to 42 mm in prefabricated concrete, brick work, curtain walling and cladding, has gained the prestigious RAL quality mark. RAL is seen in Germany and internationally as a symbol for product quality and ISO-BLOCO 600 has been recognised for its high performance joint sealing, airtightness and weather resistance capabilities. The versatile ISO BLOCO 600 range can be used to provide effective gap seals to accommodate expansion and movement while remaining permeable to trapped water and water vapour – similar to a flexible breathable style material for the building facade.

The National Merchant Buying Society (NMBS) annual exhibition is always a successful time for Everbuild – A Sika Company and this year was no exception as the team welcomed an astounding number of visitors to their stand, all eager to discover the latest product the brands have to offer.

Mirka cleans up with new dust extractors Today, health and safety issues are becoming increasingly important and sanding tools and abrasives are made more and more efficient, with focus on dust-free applications. This development places higher requirements on the dust extractors. To meet these demands, Mirka are introducing three new high performance dust extractors to address the latest health and safety demands for L (low) and M (Medium) class models.

The dust extractors have been designed to handle multiple sanding applications and surface sizes with ease. The new range comes with a 30-litre container, easily accessible flat filter, a high performance 1200W motor and onestage turbine that creates 250mbar of suction with an airflow of 4500l/min as standard to assist in the efficient removal of particles from the area being worked on. The extractors’ innovative features include an auto start function, which ensures they only run when the tool is in use, increasing the lifespan of the product and reducing the amount of noise produced. For extra space in the work area, the flat top of the extractor can be turned into additional storage

with the ability to fasten the Mirka cases to the top of the machine, providing a complete sanding solution. The L class 230v & M class 110v models come with a push and clean filter cleaning system that is easy to use and provides a simple process to maintain a clear filter. The M class 230v extractor is fitted with an automatic filter cleaning system, which cleans the filter every 15 seconds for increased performance as standard. It also has an airflow sensor that indicates when the suction is below optimal levels (below 20m/s) and excess dust might be in the air. Pete Sartain, national sales manager – Industrial of Mirka UK, says, “We are aware of the health issues associated with dust produced from a variety of sanding applications and we believe it is important that we offer users the right tool for the job. In addition, our continued commitment to invest in our products is to ensure that they not only meet the standards expected by users but also assist in safeguarding their health and providing a dust-free environment to work in. When purchasing a dust extractor, we always recommend a full risk assessment is carried out by an independent third party professional or specialist to ensure any dust extractor is fit for the purpose intended by the customer before they buy.” www.mclink.co.uk/1021-518 ENQUIRY-Card 518

DO MORE WITH 3X GRIPPING POWER It’s common knowledge amongst trade professionals that failed locking pliers result in busted knuckles. However with the IRWINŽ VISE-GRIPŽ Curved Jaw (CR) locking pliers, tradesmen needn’t worry anymore. With a self-energising lower jaw, that delivers 3X more gripping power than traditional locking pliers, there’s no chance of any slipping or stripping. There’s no need for heavy input pressure too as the jaws tighten for maximum grip as torque is applied to the tool. The pliers are available in two models: Fast

Release™, with a one-handed, triggerless release and anti-pinch, nonslip ProTouch™ Grips; and Original™, with a classic trigger release. “Other manufacturers’ traditional locking pliers only allow a couple of contact points on a round or hex work piece, resulting in the tool slipping or failing to loosen a frozen bolt,â€? said Rafael Martinez, Sr. Brand Marketing Manager at IRWIN, “The IRWINÂŽ VISEGRIPÂŽ CR, on the other hand, establishes multiple contact points with the work piece, guaranteeing a significantly tighter grip. They cannot be beat for tightening, clamping, twisting and turning.â€? “In addition, the slotted geometry of the ‘self-energising’ VISE-GRIPÂŽ Curved Jaw locking pliers rapidly increases torqueing power, and more torque means more clamping power. In fact, the CR range

provides the strongest grip ever. You can practically stand on these locking pliers when they’re torqued down and never worry about stubborn jobs,� concluded Martinez. IRWINŽ VISE-GRIPŽ Fast Release™ locking pliers have a one-handed, triggerless release, so they’re easy to open and speedily reset on the jobsite. In addition, the anti-pinch, non-slip ProTouch™ Grips feature moulded handles for comfort and leverage while reducing vibrations and hand fatigue. The Fast Release range is especially wellsuited for performing in greasy work environments where there may be lots of lubricants, and for maneuvering in tight spaces where a worker cannot easily get two hands on a tool. The new IRWINŽ VISE-GRIPŽ Curved Jaw (CR) Locking Pliers include lengths of 5-inch, 7-inch, and 10-inch models.

The full range of VISE-GRIP locking pliers, including IRWINŽ VISE-GRIPŽ Fast Release™ and Original locking tools, can be found at home centers, hardware stores and industrial tool distributors throughout the U.K. and Ireland. To celebrate IRWIN’s innovative range of products that allow tradesmen to do more on the job, the tools manufacturer is giving end-users the chance to win some DO MORE prizes when they purchase any IRWINŽ product. Up until June 30th and from participating stockists, end-users can be in with a chance of winning IRWINŽ Impact Double-Ended Power Bits or a DO MORE experience including rally car driving, hang gliding, rock climbing and much more.

Make Sure Your Face Masks have Built-in Face-fit Checking

Just like voters in the forthcoming General Election, you have a choice. As a health and safety decision-maker, you can choose to specify the tried and tested JSP® Force™8 half mask fitted with PressToCheck™ P3 Filters - which enables wearers to check their face-fit or you can choose a mask without this option. Winner of the 2014 BSIF Product Innovation of the Year Award, PressToCheck™ is the UK’s leading respiratory protection solution with integral face-fit checking. The system (patents pending) enables workers to ensure they are protected against fine construction dust including silica. Choosing a mask without this feature such as a disposable paper mask, you run the risk of inward leakage around the mask. Inhaling inwardly-leaked hazardous air could endanger wearers’ long term health. JSP’s PressToCheck™ filters are more than 99.95% efficient, keeping out almost all airborne particulate hazards in the workplace. The system allows the face mask to be correctly fitted and checked at every donning, and throughout the day, to ensure an optimum face-fit is achieved.

The General Respiratory Election is a no-brainer for health and safety professionals. Choose JSP® Force™8 half masks with PressToCheck™ P3 Filters with their built-in face-fit checking solution for complete confidence in a safer future.

You know it makes sense. Other Information about PressToCheck™ PressToCheck™ filters are completely compatible with other face-protection equipment. The low-profile, swept-back registered design enables excellent visibility, allowing the filters to be worn effectively behind all types of faceshield and welding visor. The reusable, highly efficient filters are also highly cost-effective, providing optimal protection at a lower cost than disposable dust masks. The Force™8 Half-Mask comes in three sizes, ensuring a perfect fit and maximum protection for any gender and shape of face, in any region. More information is available from www.presstocheck.com, by emailing uksales@jsp.co.uk or calling +44 (0)1993 826050. www.mclink.co.uk/1021-524 ENQUIRY-Card 524

Bahco designers have invented a ‘Quick Eject’ arbor which releases the core from the holesaw in one quick and simple operation, with no risk of burning fingers. Using minimum effort the Bahco Superior holesaws’ carbide tips will cut to a depth of 71mm through most woods, brick, lightweight concrete, MDF, plasterboard and hard plastics. They are available in 44 sizes, ranging from 19mm to 159mm; wide gullets enable effective chip removal. The Carbide Tipped holesaw, which will cut through brick and ceramic tiles, laminate, fibreglass and hardwood, is available in 55 sizes from 14mm to 152mm.

A change of season means a change of focus on what you wear on site. That’s why Snickers can help you keep your cool when the heat is on. From staying warm and dry, think about staying cool and dry and look for working clothes that excel at ventilation and moisture transport to keep you working comfortably wherever you are on site. That’s why Snickers have incorporated 37.5® Technology fabric into its garments. It’s very quick-drying material that captures and releases moisture vapour – like your sweat - for superior coolness and dry working comfort. www.mclink.co.uk/1021-124 ENQUIRY-Card 124

No matter what project you are working on there is always dust that you can’t see. We understand the threat that this dust poses to your health. Many construction workers are exposed to high levels of dust every day and even common tasks like drilling or sawing can cause problems. Regularly breathing in the dust created can seriously damage your health, and over a long period can cause life changing illnesses which in some cases may prove fatal. The Dustblocker range, from Addex, has been designed to remove unseen dust from all environments. These quiet machines operate continuously 24 hours a day to clean the air you and your colleagues breathe. They can be used as a short term solution on site or as part of a long term dust reduction strategy. The aim of the Dustblocker is to establish a circulating air stream in closed areas. By continuously circulating the air the fine dust particulates are filtered and the clean air is fed back into the room.

Crown Decorating Centre takes artistic challenge to heart A UNIQUE city centre art project in collaboration with a Crown Decorating Centre has broken new ground with its innovative use of paints. The Nuart project in Aberdeen has seen five stunning artworks created by internationally renowned street artists and brought to life with expert advice from the city’s Crown Decorating Centre. The giant paintings now bring an amazing splash of colour to buildings across the Granite City and have been created using Sandtex Trade High Cover Smooth paint to ensure not only an excellent quality finish but also colours which will stand the test of time. The high profile murals range from a spectacular artwork covering the city’s central market building, by internationally renowned German art

duo, Herekut to Australian Fintan Magee, who returned to his Scottish roots. Nuart Aberdeen features a total of eleven artists’ work and was brought to the city by business organisation Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council, and was supported by main sponsor Burness Paull LLP. Adrian Watson, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: "The Nuart Aberdeen festival was a remarkable success and attracted thousands of people to see many colourful street art murals on walls around the city centre. "We were keen to source the highest quality paint for our internationally

acclaimed artists and Aberdeen’s Crown Decorating Centre was the perfect fit for us. “Each artists’ paint and equipment needs were met by their very knowledgeable and helpful team, and we are delighted with the results which have added a welcome splash of colour to the area. “The festival will leave a legacy in the city as all of the murals will remain in place for people to engage with and enjoy, and we are working to bring Nuart back to Aberdeen in 2018.” Explained Alan Paterson, manager at the Crown Decorating Centre in Clifton Road, Kittybrewster Shopping Centre: “The organisers of Nuart were keen to work with a local supplier, so they came to us for advice on the best paints to use to ensure they lasted and met the needs of the artists. “The artists came into the store and showed us pictures of what they wanted to do and we were easily able to work out what was best for them and how much paint they would need. “We have supplied hundreds of litres of paint, rollers, brushes and other essentials. It’s certainly not our run-of-

the-mill painting project but we are very proud to have been a part of something that has had such big impact on our city. “The Sandtex Trade range has a wide variety of colours available, so the artists were able to take off-the-shelf colours and then if they wanted a particular shade, they were able to mix the paint themselves to create the exact colour they wanted. “It is certainly a first for our store to be involved in such a high-profile art project, but it just shows the versatility of the paints we offer and shows that Crown Decorating Centres put customer service at the top of our agenda. If we can help a client achieve new things, no matter how complex, we will.” For more information on the Nuart Aberdeen Festival visit http://www.nuartaberdeen.co.uk for details of the Sandtex Trade range of paints visit www.crowndecoratorcentre.co.uk www.mclink.co.uk/1021- 536 ENQUIRY-Card 536

COLOUR, EXACTLY How you want it, When you want it With colour, style and a premium finish becoming increasingly important to discerning homeowners, Mighton Products says that its Exact® colour matching service gives joiners and paint sprayers the capacity to respond to that demand thanks to its ability to match any hue of paint both promptly, and for an affordable price. Through partnering up with paint specialists Anker Stuy, Mighton technicians now have unlimited access to a library of thousands of colour recipes, enabling them to mix the product in-house and offer next day delivery on any order made before 4pm. In addition, the company make regular use use of Anker Stuy’s state of the art laboratory where previously unmatched colours can be identified from a sample or paint code quickly and accurately. Mighton Product’s Managing Director, Mark Fortune, said: “Our Exact® colour mixing and matching service is proving popular with joiners. Coming from the Mighton Ultra range, all coatings consistently offer quality and high performance in colours that would normally only be available in other systems – like emulsions.” “Significant investment in the latest computer controlled technology enables us to offer an accurate match to most existing paint systems, including ‘posh paints’. Customers can give us a colour reference to work to or alternatively

send us a sample of the paint they are looking to match. In most cases we will have the colour recipe in our existing library, if not we can have it matched that same day at our partner’s sophisticated laboratory in the Netherlands,” he added. The experienced laboratory uses hightech equipment to create new recipes which are then uploaded to the Mighton library back in the UK via the Internet. Thanks to the speed and efficiency of the whole process, in most cases Mighton are able to offer next working day delivery for new colours too. Mark concluded: “Not only is our Exact® matching service accurate and efficient, it’s also very affordable. We pride ourselves on pricing transparency - while some of our competitors charge for decanting products into smaller cans and have surcharges for colour-matching we have a price per can and that’s all you pay. This means our joiners and sprayers are able to give their customers a quick and accurate quote, straight out of the Mighton catalogue.”

Water trap seals started being fitted on bathroom and kitchen fixtures after the 1854 cholera outbreak in London, in which hundreds of people died. Today, cholera is not a risk in the UK, but within all our drainage systems sewer gases and pathogens such as SARS, legionnaires, norovirus and others are always present. For the last 40 years, drainage ventilation expert Studor has been solely focused on developing products that maintain the water trap seals in our buildings. Studor’s Trap-Vent solution, the combination of a water trap and Air Admittance Valve (AAV), can easily be retrofitted to an existing bathroom, and is also ideal for small group venting in, for example, hotels, care homes and hospitals. It protects the water trap seal between the drainage system and the room, stopping bad odours and pathogens escaping from empty traps.

Dunlop Shower Waterproofing Kit – The easy way to protect your shower, bathroom or wetroom Ensuring a wetroom, bathroom or shower is fully waterproof is crucial part of any installation, because tiles and grout on their own will not inherently protect against water damage. Dunlop, which manufactures tiling and decorating products for the trade, offers a Shower Waterproofing Kit, specially designed to include everything required to allow tradesmen to waterproof a shower area, wet room or walk in shower area in a quick, easy and simple way. Designed for any internal intermittent area where continued exposure to

making the area ready to receive tiles within in just 24 hours. Debi Boulton, Sales and Marketing Manager for Dunlop Adhesives, said: “Over the last few years the popularity of wet rooms and showers has increased dramatically, which in turn has increased the risk of installation failures due to lack of waterproofing protection. As a result we developed our Shower Waterproofing Kit which meets the demands of our customers for a quick, easy to use waterproofing kit. “With superior performance and features, our Shower Waterproofing Kit continues to prove extremely popular with the trade.

water may cause damage, the kit fully waterproofs the background behind the tiles to prevent water penetration up to 1.5metres high in a two-walled shower unit or 1metre high in a three-walled shower unit. As a result the kit prevents water saturating the whole area, reducing the risk of unsightly black mould forming, and drastically reducing the risk of more serious issues such as floor collapse and other surfaces vulnerable to corrosion. Dunlop’s Shower Waterproofing kit provides an ideal waterproofing system for showers, wetrooms, kitchens and utility rooms to prevent damaging leaks and leave tradesmen and their customers with the ultimate peace of

mind. As with all of Dunlop’s tiling products, the kit is also supported by a 10-year guarantee, so confident are Dunlop that the kit will prepare and protect against water penetration for years to come. To get ultimate waterproof protection, simply apply the primer to dry walls and floors, and leave until touch dry, seal corners, cracks, joints and floor junction with the Waterproof Coating before applying the tape to ensuring no voids are left behind. Finish by applying the coating to at least 1metre in height all over the shower walls, coating any taped areas, and, if used, over the floor matting area. This fully protects the background

Underfloor heating isn’t just for plumbers Any builder can fit warm water underfloor heating with a OneZone™ kit from Nu-Heat. Try it on your next project and save 10%! Why underfloor heating? Warm water underfloor heating (UFH) is an efficient and invisible heating system. Why choose radiators when they take up precious space in a home, or electric UFH when it costs three times as much to run? Warm water UFH is a fantastic opportunity for builders. It’s not just for plumbers – you and your team can fit most of the system. For all of your projects You can fit underfloor heating (UFH) in all of your projects quickly and simply with a OneZone™ kit. There are options for both new extensions and renovations, all of which can be installed in as little as one day. Everything you need AND free technical support! Ideal for builders, OneZone™ kits include everything you need to install UFH in a single area, from smart controls and the right amount of tube, to the suitable fixing system for the project. Kits include high-quality components with long warranty periods and clear, step-by-step installation manuals and set-up information. You even have access to Nu-Heat’s technical support team, should you need their help. Fitted over an existing floor If you mostly work on renovation projects, try LoPro™Max OneZone. Installed directly over an existing floor, the LoProTMMax OneZone UFH kit comes with a specialist, quick-drying, self-levelling compound. For minimum disruption the system can be simply connected to an existing radiator circuit to avoid pipework back to the boiler (an easy job for the plumber!). Installed in one day It’s simple to install underfloor heating with a OneZone™. LoPro™Max is fitted in just three key steps. Moulded castellated panels will hold the UFH tube in place, and the highly-conductive self-levelling compound is poured over the top. You will be left with an even, level floor that can be walked on after 24 hours and is ready for floor coverings – even tiles – after 72 hours.

1. Prepare the floor Repair and level the existing floors, sealing any gaps before priming the floor. You will then place the provided isolation strip around the sides of the room and fit battens in any doorways. 2. Lay the panels and fit the tube Place the LoPro™ castellated panels over the existing floor. These can be easily cut to size to fit the shape of any room. Once laid, fit the UFH tube into the panels following the guidance in the manual. You should then call the plumber in to finish the system setup. 3.Pour the compound Now that the plumber has commissioned the system you can mix and pour the LoPro™QuickSet compound. You can mix and pour this yourself, either by hand or with a mixer, or call on one of Nu-Heat’s compound contractors. After 72 hours you can fit your customer’s chosen floor finish.

Why OneZone™? Nu-Heat’s OneZone™ underfloor heating kits offer you: • High quality components • Long product warranties • A smooth and quick installation • An efficient and impressive heating solution • Strong heat outputs, meaning underfloor heating can be installed in Conservatories or rooms with bi-fold doors • Super-quick heat up times on par with a radiator

RINNAI SYSTEM THINKING FOR GYMS Rinnai’s gym specific solution delivers a new generation of fully integrated, high efficiency & cost effective hot water heating and delivery systems Rinnai has developed a new and innovative concept of economical and efficient hot water delivery specifically for gyms and fitness centres. The concept brings together all the components of a system in one handy, bespoke pack for any operation, large or small, local and national. Rinnai recently supplied a growing High Street gym estate with a custom-built ‘gym pack’ that includes everything from design to delivery of a complete hot water system in one easy to install, fully specified and energy efficient ‘pack’ delivered direct to site. The site has reported excellent results from the systems which have been

installed in multiple sites over the UK, with more rolling out over the next couple of years. Says Rinnai’s Chris Goggin, “Simply supplying a water heater unit (or multiple units) has become an antiquated notion that simply is not good enough. ‘System’ thinking, where we deliver to site the complete package, is what is going to give the gym chain the edge over the competition. The Rinnai system virtually guarantees endless amounts of hot water at useable temperatures, all on demand. Who wants a cold shower after a workout? And what gym chain wants to lose a client because of cold showers?"

Heating, Plumbing & Ventilation 39

The inaugural site was keen to have a fully reliable system with the slimmest of running costs, and, at the same time it was paramount that the showers never ran out of hot water even at the busiest of times. The Rinnai total gym solution includes water heaters, flues, scale protection, unvented cylinders, valves, prefabrication racks, advanced BMS controls – even water sampling equipment – specified, designed and delivered by Rinnai. “This is arguably the most efficient package on the market,” says Goggin, “and we have the figures to back this claim up.” When ErP labelling went live on 26 September 2015, Rinnai scored Aratings on all its water heaters and achieved best in class energy and running cost figures following independent testing by a notified body. “The heat generator on the system is Rinnai’s HD1500i which offers 95% gross efficiency which is maintained for the lifetime of the system due to the design principles and controls. Therefore, the design, combined with the systemthinking approach, promotes best-inclass energy efficiencies.” Rinnai HDC1500i regulates water temperature to within +/- 1ºC via a ‘smart’ digital controller without any variation of temperature at the outlet even when water is drawn off elsewhere.

All models have full electronic ignition, no pilot light and operate on demand only, so there is no gas consumption when the unit is idle. The system can accommodate as many HD1500i units as necessary depending on the size of the gym/hot water need on a bespoke cascade frame, with bespoke designed common header flue - also including proven electrolytic scale prevention device. “With our integrated system concept, we have gone far beyond simply manufacturing a product to offering a complete turnkey service from planning through installation and commissioning to on-going maintenance,” says Goggin. “Customers and end-users can be assured that their system is–G3 compliant and performing to the guidance of ACOP L8 as well as being best in class under Part L building regulations. As well as for the gym chain, we have already developed these packages for some other household name companies and for our distribution partners, and these pioneering projects, along with the gym chain programme, have been very well received.” For more details on RINNAI products visit www.rinnaiuk.com www.mclink.co.uk/1021-547 ENQUIRY-Card 547

Chris Goggin, Rinnai, says: “Relentless durability is a key feature of the Rinnai range of gas fired water heaters and that is the message we are aiming to get across by pairing with Widnes Vikings for this YouTube campaign. This is a brandheavy, mass media campaign targeted at increasing market awareness, albeit in a light-hearted manner. “The videos have been viewed on

various platforms more than 21,000 times to date and impressions from the joint campaign with Widnes Viking platforms have created more than 55,000 to our Twitter profile. We are encouraging our customers to use the Rinnai/Vikings YouTube videos in their marketing, too, to raise awareness of the Rinnai brand to their clients.” For more information on the RINNAI product range visit www.rinnaiuk.com

A breath of fresh air - Xpelair takes MVHR into new territory

Bespoke Valve Configurations On Site As Early As Seven Days

South West Heat Pumps Ltd. (SWHP) has installed a Robur K18 gas powered heat pump boiler to provide heating and hot water to a three bedroom home in Gunnislake, Devon. Owner Mr. Jackson, along with SWHP, evaluated a range of possible replacements for his old, inefficient non-condensing boiler and decided on the Robur K18 as the most costeffective solution. Powered by natural gas, but benefitting from renewable energy from air, the Robur K18 offers exceptionally low running costs, at least 38% below the cost of a modern condensing boiler, but can still provide water up to 70°C, just from the heat pump. Supplied by Robur importer ESS, the K18 has an 18kW output and is intended for use in larger or older properties with a high demand.

As part of its ongoing commitment to improving the nation’s indoor air quality, Xpelair has launched Natural Air 180 – a new Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery Unit (MVHR) which truly raises the bar in innovative domestic ventilation. The Natural Air 180 offers an easy, efficient and incredibly flexible approach to whole house ventilation. Purpose-designed for consistent performance, the unit continuously extracts stale air and moisture from dwelling wet rooms while resupplying habitable rooms with filtered air, transferring heat from the internal air during the process. With the use of ultra-fine G3 filters, the result is significantly improved indoor air quality and the elimination of condensation and odours – all while saving on energy.

For any building service contractor, the key to a successful project is the efficiency of the installation – in short, time spent on planning and onsite. Leading Integrated piping solutions manufacturer, Pegler Yorkshire, has developed a unique service that delivers bespoke valve arrangements (modular valves solutions) for fan coils in a significantly reduced lead time from the merchant’s order. Contractors looking for a fan coil modular valve solution (MVS) require the typical questions answering such as performance in application, reliability, and ease of installation and, whilst they are essential: service, lead times and planning are seen as after thoughts but do have a major impact on projects if not met.

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. The METROPOLIS grating is sold separately to fit FASERFIX® KS channels or factory fitted to RECYFIX® PRO channels. Gratings are available in nominal widths of 100mm and 200 mm. Sizing details for FASERFIX® KS 100 and FASERFIX® KS 200, with METROPOLIS gratings can be found in the Hauraton CIVILS catalogue. Sizing details for RECYFIX® PRO 100 and RECYFIX® PRO 200, with METROPOLIS gratings can be found in the Hauraton LANDSCAPE catalogue. The channels provide a loading capacity up to Class D400. All METROPOLIS grating are finished in anti-corrosion, Black KTL finish.

Cladding makes an

‘Ideal Home’ Every year one of the most popular elements of the Ideal Home Show at Olympia, London is the full size show homes. Visitors to this year’s show were treated to two stunning properties, both featuring Freefoam Fortex cladding. Pale Gold Double Shiplap cladding formed the exterior finish of a three apartment structure designed to reflect the three stages in life, first time buyer, new family home and downsizing. Visitors were invited to ‘climb the property ladder’ apartments to navigate first-hand the design and practical challenges faced by designers and city dwellers alike as they move through these stages. Pale Blue Weatherboard cladding was used to great effect on the second show home - 21st Century Cottage. A

The house featured a beautiful thatch roof and timber cladding with the lower level also clad with ultra hard-wearing, low maintenance Freefoam Fortex pvc cladding. David Richards, Director David Richard Associates, commissions the homes each year and explained the background to this year’s projects “We wanted to showcase the flexibility of modern PVC building materials and to show how they can be used on both contemporary and traditional developments. Both homes were constructed off site by Futureform Housing Ltd so we needed to source a light, easy to handle product that would withstand the rigors of transportation and look good at the show.

Kemperol keeps London’s

Silos Functional Kemper System’s Kemperol 2K-PUR solvent-free and odourless waterproofing membrane has been used to refurbish an 85 metre high food silo on London’s River Thames. Working in conjunction with Capital expansion joints around the perimeter Roofing Co Ltd of Blackheath in of the silo because of its ease of Greenwich, the client, ADM UK, needed application and difficult to access a swift refurbishment of one of its silos project location. containing linseed, as water was leaking The contractors were able to install Kemper’s liquid system on top of the in. Capital Roofing Co Ltd chose Kemperol existing felt roof. After cleaning and 2K-PUR to refurbish the roof and priming the substrate, the Kemperol 2K-

PUR resin was then applied in a single, wet-on-wet process. Reinforcement fleece was laid directly onto the first application of wet resin, immediately followed by more resin on top to ensures complete saturation of the reinforcement fleece. Once cured, the system forms a seamless, elastomeric waterproof membrane that cannot delaminate, is UV stable, and creates a strong bond directly to the substrate. Because of the exposed location of the silo, contractors were faced with high winds during installation. The handling and laying of sheet membrane materials would have increased the health and safety risk, so Kemper’s two-component liquid applied system was ideally suited to the conditions. Chris Shulver at Capital Roofing Co Ltd, said: “This tricky project required a durable waterproofing solution that was quick and easy to apply given the location of the silo. Not only did Kemper’s Kemperol 2K-PUR system offer these benefits, but we could also provide peace of mind to the end client that the solution would ensure a completely seamless and durable waterproofing solution for many years to come – even in its exposed location. “Operatives had to work at greater heights than normal on this project, facing the elements as well as strong winds. Application of Kemperol doesn’t require any hot works needing gas bottles or boilers so it was easier to transport product to site, and we could

complete the job quickly and to the full satisfaction of the end client.” Stuart Hicks at Kemper System Ltd, added: “The plant was first built in 1902 and has expanded over the years to provide more milling and processing silos for speciality feed ingredients. Because this particular silo contained food, a solution to stop the water ingress needed to be devised as quickly as possible. Kemperol 2K-PUR’s speed and ease of installation meant the plant could continue to function with very little disruption.” ADM mills tonnes of wheat per year at its London site as well as six other facilities in England and Scotland.

CONSERVATORY CONVERSION COMPANY Insullite, a Manchester based manufacturer specialising in the upgrade of existing conservatory structures, is making extensive use of high performance multi-foil insulation from YBS in the construction of its replacement roofs.











  

sunny summer weather, owners choosing our solution can enjoy their conservatory all year round.” Explaining why his company chose YBS as a key supplier, Neil Birchall added: “We assessed all of the multi-foil products available on the market and found that YBS SuperQuilt best suited our system needs. This was partly because we needed one that was externally reflective to combat solar gain in hot weather and also it is fitter friendly, being cross-stitched and therefore rip resistant. “ “Thanks to the thermal performance that we can offer and our ability to produce an improved, tiled roof for any size of existing conservatory, we are seeing business growing steadily with turnover now in excess of £1 million a year.” Recognised by the NHBC and compliant

with the current version of Approved Document L to the Building Regulations, SuperQuilt comprises of 19 layers including reflective foil, expanded polyethylene and polyester wadding to provide a cost effective and userfriendly alternative to much thicker insulation materials. Installed with a 25mm cavity, it controls not just radiated energy, but thermal conduction and convection. It creates an effective vapour control layer and will also combat thermal overheating in the summer months. Delivered in kit form and erected by the manufacturer’s highly experienced installation teams, Insullite roofs featuring YBS Super Quilt insulation solid tiled conservatory roofs can be seen at www.insullite.co.uk

Thanks to the installation of ROCKWOOL flat roof insulation products, teachers and students at Stopsley   High School   are benefitting from a learning environment that has been acoustically treated to reduce noise disruption. Offering maximum density and exceptional dimensional stability, 600m2 of the   approximately  150mm ROCKWOOL HARDROCK® Multi-Fix (DD) boards were adhesively applied on the roof of the building. ROCKWOOL HARDROCK® Multi-Fix (DD) Underlay was placed across the roof, followed by the HARDROCK® Multi-Fix (DD) roof boards providing a non-combustible surface that was ideal of the torch applied for the application   bitumen waterproofing system. The HARDROCK® Multi-Fix (DD) boards have helped to deliver a    sound and fire comprehensive thermal, safe solution that is suitable for this type of multi-purpose application.

Timber Cladding - the natural choice for energy efficient homes Canjaere timber cladding from the A. Proctor Group has been supplied for an exciting new housing development for property developer Eskdale Homes. Each of the houses at the Ballenlochan development in Pitlochry were built using Val-U-Therm®, a unique closed panel, factory insulated timber frame system with class leading thermal performance and manufactured off-site by Scotframe Timber Engineering. Canjaere Classic Timber Cladding in the golden natural colourway, Tongue and Groove fi nish was chosen for its high quality and natural appearance, created during manufacture. The timber is treated using a unique process, which improves its performance, and protects the wood against moisture and preserves the finished look, backed by a 30-year maintenance warranty against rot and decay.

JB Shingles take Warwick Castle guests back in time Marley Eternit’s JB Western Red Cedar Shingles have been specified for the roofs of 28 new medieval-themed lodges at Warwick Castle. The unique additions to the popular tourist attraction give visitors the chance to experience the medieval age like never before. The brand new lodges were designed by Willerby Bespoke, a business dedicated to the design, manufacture and installation of timber frame buildings, to give guests a truly medieval experience, which also complemented the existing medieval ‘glamping’ accommodation and castle surroundings. Willerby Bespoke designed the lodges, including the Knight’s Lodge; a twostorey mezzanine design, meaning that installation and stitching the roofs together was more complex and had to be completed on site.

Since the Managing Director, Neil Birchall, and his brother set it up five years ago, Insullite has grown its business serving trade as well as private domestic customers right across the UK, enabling property owners to make use of their outdoor rooms all year round. They achieved this by developing a lightweight, timber framed replacement roof structure featuring the use of the YBS SuperQuilt multi-layer insulation, which is actually suitable for use across the entire building envelope. The choice of the well proven - and BBA accredited product, enables the Insullite conservatory roof to achieve Building Regulation approval while maintaining the elegantly low profile appearance complementary to existing conservatories. Managing Director, Neil Birchall commented: “The Insullite solid tiled

conservatory roof has been intelligently designed to solve all of the common problems that conservatory owners face: we do this by using a multi-layered foil insulation system. Our solution features a SuperQuilt 19 layer multi-foil insulation, which has an excellent thermal value as it deflects the extreme hot and cold temperatures away from the occupied space. We also employ a sound deadening insulation, which unlike rigid materials, completely silences the weather. “ “This intelligent use of insulation technologies means that the Insullite tiled conservatory roof achieves a Uvalue of 0-18 W/m2 K – meaning the insulation system is one of the best on the market. Whereas conventional conservatories with glass or Perspex roofs are either freezing cold in winter or boiling hot in

Garador launches visualise your door tool Garador has launched a new website-based tool to show exactly what their new Garador garage door will look like on a property. Garador’s Visualise your Door is a new tool on its website that lets you upload a picture of your property, mock-up an image of a garage door and then print it off. After speaking to customers across the country, Garador found that most customers wanted to see what their chosen door looked like on the house before they made the purchase. So

Garador created the Visualise your Door tool, to help people actually picture what their garage door will look like on their property.

For those with small children, a window restrictor is an essential safety device. However, retailers may be surprised to learn that there is currently only one product on the UK market which complies with the strictest child safety standards. The Safety Locking Cable Restrictor, from home security specialist ERA, is the only window restrictor to pass all British Standards, including tests to Grade 3 impact resistance of BSEN13126-5. The Safety Locking Cable Restrictor complies with the strictest safety standards ERA’s distribution marketing manager, Tania Tams explains, ‘Claiming ‘child safety’ on any product is a huge responsibility and products which do not meet current requirements can pose a real risk, not only to the end consumer but also to the manufacturer and to the retailer through which the product is sold.

VEKA fabricators add FlushSash to sales arsenal

Thermal break technology to produce windows for the next generation

Hot on the heels of the best-selling Halo FlushSash system, The VEKA UK Group has unveiled the VEKA FlushSash, meaning VEKA fabricators can now benefit from this versatile and stylish system. Perfectly suited to a host of applications, the VEKA FlushSash is particularly well positioned to meet the growing demand for energy-efficient systems in the heritage sector. The clean, ‘uncluttered’ lines of the FlushSash are reminiscent of traditional Georgian timber windows, but these flush aesthetics also make the system ideal for contemporary commercial projects as an alternative to aluminium. The VEKA UK Group's Sales Director Neil Evans explains: “As ever, VEKA has designed this new system with customers in mind. The VEKA FlushSash is able to utilise existing outerframes, hardware and ancillaries, and will really extend sales opportunities for our fabricators and installers.

Integration is the key factor which underpins the latest new product launch from Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems. Their market leading Comar 9P.i Framing system offers fast-track semi unitised construction for floor to ceiling glazing, allowing tilt/turn or casement windows to hang direct from the Comar 9P.i Frame as well as rebated doors. With the addition of thermal foam and triple glazing Comar 9P.i offers U-values down to 0.77, creating a future proof solution for their architectural, contractor and fabricator partners. Comar announce they have incorporated the technology from their Comar 9P.i system into the Comar 5P.i window range, and are now launching the Comar 5P.i Advanced Casement and Tilt/Turn window system which integrates seamlessly into Comar 9P.i creating the option for standalone high performance windows.

Hörmann offers the very best in energy efficiency and space-saving solutions At the beginning of the year, the UK’s leading door manufacturer, Hörmann, launched two new additions to its range of Sectional and RollMatic garage doors. Both products not only offer homeowners new options when it comes to thermal efficiency, but also the latest in space-saving technology. For those seeking ways to reduce heat loss, Hörmann’s LPU 67 Thermo Sectional garage doors have been designed to achieve the company’s lowest ever U-value, providing up to 50% more thermal insulation than previous models. It achieves this by using 67mm thick, polyurethane foam filled panels and double-lip seals on all four sides. As well as its thermal benefits, this latest range comes with Hörmann’s proven finger trap protection to help eliminate potential trap zones both internally and externally. If you select the premium version of the LPU 67 Thermo, the fitting parts, frames, tracks and connections come in a highquality polyester powder paint coating. This is finished in Grey White RAL 9002, giving the interior of your door an exclusive look. The LPU 67 Thermo is also available in a variety of finishes, colours, and glazing options.

Ideal for those wanting to make the most out of a small space, Hörmann’s RollMatic OD has been designed to utilise the very best in space-saving technology, running along a horizontal guide rail instead of rolling around a central drum. By incorporating the operator into the guide rail, this latest roller door from Hörmann is an ideal choice for individuals that have a low headroom availability and don’t want to compromise on drive-through height. Hörmann is world renowned for producing quality doors, and these latest additions are an example of just that.

MIX AND MATCH DOORS with a little help from PREMDOR As one of the country’s foremost door manufacturers, Premdor has one of the most extensive collections of internal and external door designs available to the UK market.

It can therefore be seen that the extent of the colourways, designs and finishes provides the perfect opportunity to add value to a home or commercial establishment by mixing and matching contrasting door styles upstairs and downstairs, including external entrance doors. Whilst the use of internal wall colour, texture and design is the accepted norm, the concept of using doors to achieve a decorative effect can often be overlooked. Whether it be new build or a refurbishment project the coordination of a Contemporary Oak finish downstairs complementing a White Moulded option upstairs can lead to a dramatic decorative effect. To begin to understand the endless creative permutations see the latest Premdor product brochure and let your imagination mix and match.   For further information, please call 0844 209 0008 for a brochure or visit www.premdor.co.uk www.mclink.co.uk/1021-569 ENQUIRY-Card 569

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR YOUR FIRST TIME. Does size matter? Yes it does. Choosing a size Every size of an Eclisse pocket door system is designed to fit a specific size of standard UK or Republic of Ireland door panel size. This means it will fit exactly, first time, no worries, without the need to cut the steel frame to size to make it fit the door. You can choose your size of kit based on your door panel size or based on the wall space available for the frame and work backwards. If you have enough space for a 1838mm x 2105mm frame, then from the table below you can see that you will require a 2ft 10â&#x20AC;? x 6ft 8â&#x20AC;? door panel. Fancy a bigger size? We can provide bigger bespoke sizes. Our classic single pocket door frames can be made to create a passage size of up to 2m wide and up to 2.9m tall.

New run-through horns mark ETF’s 18th anniversary

Govette Windows, a member of the Steel Window Association, has completed a prestigious contract on a private residential property in Shepherds Bush, London, supplying and installing a package of clever steel doors and windows fabricated using the W40 suite of sections. The scheme boasts stunning aesthetics while optimising views and daylight transmission; as well as offering higher levels of security and enhanced energy performance. The home has been extensively modernised and remodelled under the guidance of Alex Upton Architects (AUA): featuring a side extension at ground floor level to create a spacious kitchen and entertainment space. Extending across the widened rear elevation, the W40 screen produced by Govette Windows in Surrey, contains two sets of double doors opening out onto the garden’s large paved area.

Express Trade Frames has announced an exciting new extension to its suite of PVC-U window systems from The VEKA UK Group, with a run-through horn option for its top-swung casement windows. The Fleetwoodbased fabricator is also celebrating its 18th anniversary with The VEKA UK Group in 2017. Popular with homeowners, horned PVC-U casement windows mimic the style of traditional timber-framed units. Until recently however, such additions on the VEKA Fully Sculptured system have visibly been appended to the main frame, with a seam separating the two sections. Scott Law, Managing Director of Express Trade Frames explains: “Our run-through horn design offers authenticity for homeowners who want the look of traditional timberframed windows but with all the thermal, acoustic and weatherproofing performance of a PVC-U system.

Size optons for Iso-Chemie’s ISO-Top Winframer

Qualplas celebrates milestone birthday

ISO CHEMIE’s ISO-TOP WINFRAMER thermal insulating and load bearing bracket system of the rapid and effective installation of windows, is now available in varying sizes from 80mm to 200mm to suit window depths. Having attained Passivhaus certified status, ISO-TOP WINFRAMER is a structurally solid, pre-fabricated installation frame manufactured in 1,200 mm lengths, which can be quickly cut to length on site and secured in position using a single component adhesive and, if necessary, fixing screws. This enables installers to position and fit windows into the insulation area between the inner and outer walls quickly and easily, avoiding the need to use metal brackets that cause nonrepeating thermal bridging and give extensive problems when the windows need replacing.

Qualplas, the St Helens-based PVC-U window fabricator and long-standing customer of The VEKA UK Group celebrates three decades of business this year. The milestone will be marked with a wide range of activities and customer giveaways throughout the year. Since the very beginning, Qualplas has been dedicated to providing top quality products and unbeatable customer service to all of its trade, retail and commercial clients. This commitment was cemented when the young company chose The VEKA UK Group as its number one supplier of PVC-U profile just one year into trading, before later also joining Network VEKA, which has quality craftsmanship and customer satisfaction at its core. In January 2016, ST Group Ltd – the parent company of Qualplas – was taken over by Huws Gray, the largest independent builders merchants in Wales and the North West of England.

All change at this year's Network VEKA AGM!

Industry-leading installer support organisation, Network VEKA, has hosted another fantastic Members' Weekend and glittering awards ceremony. The ever-popular event, this year held in Warwick, attracted more than 240 attendees in the organisation's 21st year. The day kicked off with a specially built Business Centre, where members could chat to various supporting companies and affiliate partners about how they could work together for even greater success. As a national organisation, Network VEKA's partnerships with affiliate companies mean that small, independent member companies can access a host of benefits, such as favourable rates and unique services that they might otherwise be unable to secure. The afternoon's speeches began with MD of The VEKA UK Group Dave Jones, who discussed the many ways the Network has grown in recent years, and continues to grow. Finance Director Graham Fitton took the audience through Network VEKA's accounts over the past year, before Marketing Director Dawn Stockell unveiled some major changes being launched for Network VEKA's branding going forward.*More to be announced* Dave Jones rounded off proceedings, describing Network VEKA as the pinnacle of VEKA's support offering and praising the membership for all their hard work: “Network VEKA is the jewel

A b-oompah evening celebration This year's Gala Dinner and Awards was a black-tie event, with a twist. The celebrations kicked off with a Champagne reception, and a Bavarian theme ensured that the atmosphere was fun and the beer was flowing. This year's Awards were recategorised for the first time, now being judged on company size rather than region. This meant that members were competing against comparable companies up and down the country, not only those in their own area. Trophies were presented by VEKA's Head of Partner Programmes Karen Lund and Six-Times World Snooker Champion Steve Davis, who steps down as Brand Ambassador this year, after 11 years proudly representing Network VEKA. Category winners based on customer satisfaction scores: £1.5M +: Thistle Windows & Conservatories £1 - 1.5M : Goliath HomeWorld £750K - 1M : Shane Howells Ltd £500K - 750K : MG Windows £250K - 500K : Ffenestri Kevin Thomas < £250K : Gordon Euman Double Glazing & Joinery Ltd Overall National Winner was Thistle Windows and Conservatories Aberdeen-based Thistle is no stranger to these prestigious awards, having won 'Best in Scotland' an amazing 14 times over the years! This year's achievement represents the team's 15th and 16th Awards win, having scooped the prize for their business category and claimed overall 'Member of the Year'.

STEVE DAVIS AND KAREN LUND PRESENTED THE AWARDS

in the crown of the VEKA brand portfolio – the brand that stands for trust, not only to us all but also to our consumers... The futures of VEKA and Network VEKA are more entwined than ever before, neither will succeed as fully as we expect without the other. For all the work and investment we have coming through, what remains unchanged is that the most important assets Network VEKA has, are sat in this room. “Our membership remains the platform for everything we have and can achieve and, once again, I thank you for your support and your efforts in growing this genuinely unique organisation.” Dave also took this opportunity to congratulate founder member Goliath Homeworld on celebrating 30 years in business and to thank MD Steve Hancox as he retires from the Network VEKA Advisory Panel, after 20 years of sharing his knowledge and expertise.

Presenting the award on behalf of Network VEKA, Karen Lund VEKA's Head of Partner Programmes said: “Congratulations to Thistle; a worthy champion. The 'new look' categories this year mean that not only has Thistle bagged its 15th trophy, it is also the first to ever win the award for this particular division.

In with the new In a year of big changes for the Network, two new members in particular stood out from the competition. This year's 'Best New Member' Award was jointly won by D&I Window Solutions and North Lakes (NLG) Window Systems; two companies that have each proven their absolute commitment to quality through the many customer satisfaction questionnaires submitted by their customers. The gift of giving After the Awards, members enjoyed a delicious dinner and had chance to take part in the Charity Raffle and Auction, as well as donating via envelopes on the tables. The funds raised from these proceedings will be sent to Pendleside Hospice; The VEKA UK Group's chosen charity for the first half of 2017. A fantastic £3850 was raised on the night. Lace up your lederhosen and dust off your dancing shoes! Alternative oompah band 'The Jäger Maestros' played live before a disco took revellers through to the early hours. Karen Lund had this to say about the weekend: “The Members' Weekend was a roaring success once again, and this year's event gave us the opportunity to say a fond farewell to Steve Davis, and thank him for his many years professionally representing the brand. “This annual celebration is an important one on the Network's calendar; it's a great chance for companies to learn from each other and share ideas and experiences, as well as speak directly to the team and make any suggestions that can help with the continuous evolution of the organisation.

THISTLE WINDOWS & CONSERVATORIES

This is a fantastic accolade as judging has been made on like-for-like businesses rather than on a regional basis. As all Network VEKA companies undergo constant auditing and review as part of their membership, the overall standard of customer service is exceptionally high, and that has always been at the very core of the Network.”

“The new branding unveiled by our Marketing Director was very well received and I, for one, am very much looking forward to seeing it roll out in the coming weeks.” www.vekauk.com www.mclink.co.uk/1021-577 ENQUIRY-Card 577
