Now that really is quick! We say our pocket door frames are quick and easy to assemble but just how quick is that? We called some of our regular customers to find out how long it takes them to assemble a single pocket door frame in the real world. Bear in mind that the Eclisse pocket door system has been thoughtfully designed to make it a straightforward job. It is simply a case of building the frame by clicking together the metal sections and inserting only 6 screws! We don’t ask you to spend time cutting the steels to size to suit your door or making difficult adjustments to fit. Because we offer a range of sizes that are made to measure to fit standard UK door sizes, you just pick the kit that fits your standard door size, so it fits first time, every time. We also don’t expect you to have to align the track and the pocket when you install our system. Instead the track and pocket assembles together as one complete unit ready to fit into your stud work. This emphasis on easy fit goes down to the smallest detail, even the door guide has been designed to fit perfectly, dead centre in a matter of seconds. And because our product comes in kit form in 233 cm by 15 cm by 17 cm

box (including jambs) it is easy to transport, store and handle. So what was the quickest time recorded by one of our customers for assembling a single pocket door frame? An amazing 12 minutes 35 seconds! We wouldn’t expect all of our customers to be able to achieve the same, but it just shows you how quick it can be. www.mclink.co.uk/963-602

Tradesmen are still reluctant to go to the doctors, despite making more of an effort to look after themselves, new research has found.

A study of 1,000 tradespeople* by IronmongeryDirect, the UK’s largest online and mail order supplier of ironmongery products to the trade, found that tradesmen are making more of an effort to lead a healthier lifestyle with 32% regularly hitting the gym and 50% watching their weight. However, despite 39% saying they strive to lead a very healthy lifestyle, when tradesmen get ill 46% admit they don’t go to the doctors, with 29% choosing to self-medicate and 17% preferring to work through it. Further research from PushDoctor.co.uk found that 58% of tradesmen have been unable to go to the doctors in the past

year because of work commitments, and 25% still go to work when they are ill, rather than visit a GP. Wayne Lysaght-Mason, managing director at IronmongeryDirect, said: “While it’s great to see so many tradespeople taking active measures to lead a healthy lifestyle, when illness does strike it’s important that they put their health first, rather than their work. “Tradesmen need to make time to visit the doctors and not feel afraid to ask for help when they are feeling unwell. By seeking medical advice, and gaining expert opinion on how to recuperate, they are likely to recover and return to work faster than if they didn’t.” www.mclink.co.uk/963-601 ENQUIRY-Card 601

Polypipe extends building insulation options with Multicor Flexible Polypipe, the UK’s leading manufacturer of above and below ground drainage products, plastic plumbing, and building products has introduced greater choice to its extensive TDI range of Insulated DPCs and Thermal Insulation Systems. Multicor Flexible provides professional builders with an easy to install, one-size-fits-all, open cavity insulation solution, and is now available at your nearest Polypipe heavyside stockist.

Multicor Flexible is designed for use in an open cavity, at the second fix stage of building construction.

The 2.44m length insulation is flexible and can squeeze to fit

any cavity width from 50mm to 100mm. Multicor Flexible is made in the UK to meet all relevant industry standards and joins an already wide range of Polypipe open cavity, closed cavity and party wall insulation solutions. The result is that installers receive a wide range of choice and convenience, as the products are suitable for every type of construction project. Mark Devanney, National Development Manager for Polypipe TDI, comments:

“Polypipe is always looking to add to its extensive range of building products to meet customer needs. With Multicor Flexible, housebuilders gain a reliable, easy to install cavity insulator, that has the Polypipe quality seal of approval.” “Following the launch of Multicor Flexible, Polypipe will be looking to add to its range of insulation solutions during the course of 2016.” www.mclink.co.uk/963-500 ENQUIRY-Card 500

Describing the launch as a major development in the industry, Hope’s Commercial Director, Gary Brennand says: “The chances are that professional builders have already been using Hope cement as we’ve been supplying it to merchants for years through a third party supplier.

“Social housing a prime target for building product suppliers”

WALL PANEL

STRIPE

Insight Data, the data experts for the construction industry, has revealed an increase in social housing activity with building firms now actively chasing social housing project work. Jade Greenhow, Operations Manager said; “the number of building contractors winning work within the social housing market has risen by 20.5% in the last 12 months alone, with 582 construction firms now working within the social housing sector”. The trend looks set to continue as contractors – and building product suppliers – are keen to capitalise on this sector after several years of stagnation. “According to the Department of Environment, local authority acquisition and construction grew from 285 in 2014 to 1030 in 2015. Speaking in January 2016 a spokesperson explained how 13,000 keys were being handed out for social housing, with output and demand increasing.” This creates significant demand for building and maintenance products. Using Insight Data’s ‘Construction File’ database means manufacturers and distributors can now target the main contractors, house-

builders and developers directly. Jade added; “The Construction File is our database of the UK’s 1,100 major construction firms and contains detailed information on the type of work they undertook, financial data, and those crucial key decision makers, complete with over 3,000 verified email addresses”. Sales and marketing departments can access the Construction File database as a one-off list or by using an online database portal, Salestracker, which is continuously updated and gives users access to the very latest industry movements and contacts, all live in real-time.

Kee safety ensures optimal safety with Keeguard® Ladder Kit To provide optimal safety to those working at height, Kee Safety, a global supplier of fall protection equipment, has launched KeeGuard® Ladder Kit, a permanently fixed guardrail system that is used in conjunction with safety ladders and self-closing gates. KeeGuard® Ladder Kit has been designed to provide a working at height safety solution that complies with EN 14122-4. This standard recommends that ‘to prevent falling through the access opening at arrival areas, the opening shall be provided with a gate.’ It also states that at drop edges of arrival areas, ‘a guardrail should be provided at least 1.5m either side of the ladder.’ To ensure it complies with the standard, KeeGuard® Ladder Kit is a 'retro-fit' guardrail solution that fits to existing fixed ladder or cat ladders, providing 1.5m guardrailing on both sides of the ladder.

Pegler Yorkshire continues its drive to further enhance its valve portfolio and support its customers’ objectives of system optimisation. The new V850 ductile iron gate valve has been introduced to the company’s commercial valve offering and adds a solution for potable water applications. Gate valves, primarily used to allow the flow of liquids, ensure very low friction loss and provide a high flow path when in the fully opened position. The new V850 is characterised as having a non-rising stem which supports ease if operation in confined spaces. The WRAS approved V850 from Pegler Yorkshire boasts numerous benefits over other gate valve types as it is ideal for isolating pipelines that transport potable water. Its design incorporates a stainless steel stem providing resistance to corrosion in addition its discs are coated in a EPDM material to reduce exposure of fluid to metal surfaces.

Omnie Systems help self-builder achieve low energy profile

New SALUS Smart Home system heralds the dawn of a new era

Introducing the New P3 Hybrid Gas Fire from Charlton & Jenrick

Exeter based Timóleon has provided a heating and ventilation solution for a self-builder to achieve his ambition of creating a new home, with a very low level of environmental impact and running costs. This results in a property with high standards of indoor air quality and comfort. The dwelling has been constructed as a single storey, deep plan structure within a walled garden in the village of Bradninch in Devon. The ultra-sustainable design features not just an Omnie 7kW Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP), delivering domestic hot water and warmth via the manufacturer’s Omnie Foilboard Floating UFH System, but also an Omnie Compact 185 Heat Recovery Unit (HRU), supplying pre- warmed air throughout. Now with the rural retreat completed the Omnie equipment is fulfilling on all of the design intention.

Heating controls specialist, SALUS, has taken its expertise and technology to a whole new level with the unveiling of a ‘Smart Home’ range of connected products that will enable homeowners to run their home simply from their phone. At the centre of the SALUS Smart Home system is the Universal Gateway UG600 and Smartphone App that are required to control and monitor the system. Once up and running, users can quickly and easily connect a variety of devices that feature in the range, such as smart plugs, door and window sensors, and an electric monitor that provides data on any particular product. A new iT530 thermostat, smoke Alarm, CO2 alarm, camera, smart switch and smart button are also set to join the range.

The Paragon P3 Hybrid fire is a natural gas, manual control, convector gas fire combining the performance of a highlyefficient glass-fronted fire with the charm of an open-flame gas fire. The new Hybrid technology brings high-efficiency performance combined with the appeal of a welcoming openflame fire, which was first developed in the Paragon P7 hole-in-the-wall fire and now used for this 16x22” fire. The fire comes with a very realistic coal flame effect and offers a very impressive 4.9kW output from its 7kW input. Explaining the decision making behind the launch of the fire, Rob Pope, Director commented “we have seen over the last 10 years the move from low efficiency decorative open-flame gas fires to the highly efficient glassfronted fires and we at Charlton & Jenrick welcome this move “

The ideal bathroom towel warmer is a dual fuel radiator which works on the central heating system and also has an electric connection, giving the option for year round warmth even when the heating is switched off. Especially suited to bathrooms, Vasco’s towel warmers offer exceptionally high build quality with invisible weld seams and extensive colour choice, plus outstanding efficiency and extremely economical heat control whether using the central heating system or electricity. Towel warmers really come into their own in Spring and Autumn when they can be used to warm towels or take the chill off the bathroom when the central heating is not on. Vasco’s practical designs provide ample space for hanging towels in the generous gaps between the horizontal bars, or via a towel rail or a folding and stacking rack, both or which are fitted as accessories.

Step out in comfort with

BASE Trainers

Ensuring flexibility and comfort with every step, BASE has extended its range of safety trainers with three new options, all of which make you feel like you are walking on air. Frisbee, Be-Shiny and Colosseum join the existing Martin and Opera BASE trainer line-up, and have a lot in common in terms of comfort and style. Among the lightest safety trainers on the market, Frisbee and BeShiny fit like a glove and feel almost weightless, even at the end of a long day of hard graft. Both Frisbee and Be-Shiny trainers are fitted with BASE SlimCap – a metal-free toe cap which is 35% lighter than standard steel toe caps and with a pre-shaped protective bend for additional protection. Innovative technology is a common feature throughout the BASE trainer range, with Frisee and Be-Shiny having a tough and slip-resistant TPU-Skin, which makes the soles of the footwear ultra-flexible, to cushion the foot and

bend as required. With its steel toe cap, the Colosseum trainer is just as flexible and comfortable to wear, thanks to its Airtech anti-fatigue sole. Arugably the most comfortable safety trainer available, Frisbee features BASE’s Dry ‘n’ Air technology, an ergonomic footbed for extreme comfort regardless of how long you’re on your feet, plus air circulation to keep feet cool and fresh whatever the weather. All three new trainers not only help to reduce foot fatigue on even the busiest of working days, with features such as padded collars to maximise on comfort, they also have SmellStop technology, with a fabric lining that has a permanent anti-bacterial treatment to help prevent odours.

Paints, Fillers, Sealants, Adhesives & Damp Proofing 31

Time to breathe Sand and cement renders have been the most common replastering method used on rising damp affected walls since the 1950s. Whilst effective, they can also present problems. Hudson Lambert of Safeguard Europe explains. In the face of rising or penetrating damp, there is a need for internal plastering that is impervious to saltbased damp damage. Traditional strong sharp sand and cement mixes are effective at holding back damp and salts; yet they are slow and expensive to apply, and are associated with condensation risk, poor insulation qualities and a cold feel that is unpopular with building occupants. They are also not suitable for heritage structures because they are inflexible, don’t breathe and can damage underlying brickwork.

combine the effectiveness of sand and cement without the drawbacks. Both Dryzone Renovation Plasters and Dryzone Express Replastering complete the Dryzone System range of rising damp renovation products, enabling the sourcing of all necessary materials from one place.

For this reason, Safeguard has developed two new replastering systems that

Replastering System No.1: Dryzone Renovation Plasters Dryzone Damp-Resistant Plaster is a modern formulation of breathable damp and salt resistant plaster that can be applied with traditional plastering techniques. For older buildings, Dryzone Hi-Lime Renovation Plaster is also available.

The Dryzone System enables the treatment of rising damp from start to finish. Simply install a new damp-proof course with either Dryrod DPC Rods or Dryzone DPC Cream and choose one of the plastering specifications below.

Unlike sand and cement renders, Dryzone Renovation Plasters are nondestructive to the underlying masonry, do not require gauging and provide a warmer surface. Simply mix and apply two coats. These highly effective Safeguard renovation plasters can be applied to walls while they are still damp and has a porous structure which controls salt migration, allows walls to dry out by evaporation and results in higher thermal resistance, reducing the risk of condensation. Other properties include a low compressive strength

ensuring that the plaster can easily be removed at a later date without damaging underlying brickwork; high water vapour diffusion and conformity for the EN998-1 CE Standard as ‘Renovation Mortars’. Dryzone Damp-Resistant Plaster is applied in two layers as a 5mm anchoring rough coat and a 15mm to 20mm top coat. The working time of the plaster is 30 - 60 minutes depending on temperature and humidity; and a 2mm skim coat can be applied after 24 hours. Replastering System No. 2: Dryzone Express Replastering System This specification utilises plasterboard and provides the speed and convenience advantages of a traditional dot and dab plasterboard application and also provides a salt and damp-proof interior wall surface. The system is quicker and consequently less expensive to install per m2 than traditional ‘wet’ plaster systems. These materials combined allow for treatment and room reinstatement in around a day – a massive improvement over the weeks that more traditional methods may take – and obviate, for example, problems associated with decanting tenants for significant periods of time. There are two elements to the system: Dryshield Cream, which primes walls;

and Drygrip Adhesive to direct bond plasterboard to treated walls. Armed with these products, a skilled operative can treat rising damp, replaster and complete re-decoration in just 24 hours. Once a DPC is installed, Dryshield Cream is applied to affected walls. It is a breathable, salt-resistant waterrepellent that weakens the crystal strength of salts forming in or at the masonry surface as damp evaporates. Easy to apply by brush or roller, the cream not only acts as a primer for Drygrip Adhesive but also penetrates the masonry structure deeply so as to form a durable, robust bond. Developed for ‘dab’ fixing plasterboard directly to masonry surfaces, Drygrip Adhesive forms a strong and longlasting bond and is resistant to both salts and damp. Once fixed, the boards can be tape-jointed and skimmed as in ordinary drylining situations.

What’s the future of the electric shower market? Hello design, goodbye white box on the wall, says Simon Cornelius of Aqualisa

The electric shower market accounts for 50% of the UK shower market, with 1.2 million units sold in 2015*. It’s the stand-out shower technology for installers when it comes to retrofits, ensuites, extensions and the price-conscious customer. In terms of the number of products sold, the electric shower market has been in decline, particularly products with the smaller, 8.5kw engine size. At the same time, we’re seeing an increase in average selling price per unit. Design has never been more important in this market, starting with the style of a shower but also the quality of materials, ease of use and the reliability of temperature and flow. The engine size of the shower is part of this trend, with customers opting for the more powerful 9.5kw and 10.5kw sizes. Style-conscious homeowners are inspired by TV makeover shows and celebrity house spreads in Hello! and other magazines. They want the latest bathroom design for their own home and are aware of current trends from accents of colour to mood lighting and luxury finishes. When looking at an investment buy such as a shower, they are prepared to pay a little more for one that will last. What’s changed is that that the demand for style is

The new Carron Phoenix Elena Tap The clean lines of the square base on the new Elena from Carron Phoenix, combined with its elegantly curved ribbon spout, offer a distinctivelydesigned tap to suit any modern or contemporary kitchen. The monobloc Elena in chrome is available now, competitively priced at an RRP inc VAT of £259. It comes with the assurance of a five year guarantee. The tap features a swivel spout which rotates through 360 and the design of the square base is complemented by a single joystick-style square side lever. It has an overall height of 375mm and a spout reach of 230mm. The Elena operates on a minimum 0.5 bar pressure so is suitable for both combination boiler and most gravity fed water systems. It takes the Carron Phoenix mixer tap portfolio to a choice of 28 models, to suit all styles and tastes.

Showerwall updates its range with distinctive new decors

Franke extends its popular Omni range

The June relaunch of Showerwall sees it get a major design update with seven new décors added to the standard range, together with the introduction of a brand new designer-led Infinity Collection. The 100% waterproof Showerwall system caters for a wide range of tastes and demographics, providing the opportunity to put an individual design stamp on any project. Infinity offers 14 distinctive designs with a departure into bold colours, metallics and graphic prints to create a modern, edgier look. There is also the option of totally bespoke digital print designs. It is a stand-alone collection, with a separate display stand, and is aimed at retailers looking to offer something different. Infinity includes six ‘Whispering Grass’ décors by the awardwinning surfaces designer, Lars Contzen and is the first bathroom wallpanelling range to offer a supermatt texture, with Fenix NTM® décors in two colourways of Rosa Colorado and Grigio Efeso.

Responding to retailer feedback, Franke has expanded its Omni 4-in-1 tap offering by introducing the Omni Classic, for customers who want the benefits of the up-to-the minute Omni technology in a tap that is more design sympathetic to a traditional kitchen. The Omni Classic marries the timeless appeal of a swan-neck spout, gentle curves and elegant white levers with the exceptional build quality and prestige of hi-shine solid stainless steel. It delivers filtered boiling water at a full 100 C, filtered cold water and standard mains hot and cold, all from a single tap mixer for the ultimate in lifestyle convenience. Virtually no tools are required for fitting thanks to the Omni Classic’s plug and play installation and with a triple safety action and cool-touch chassis, the Omni Classic is very safe to operate.

now relevant to all price points in the market, not just the top end. Design is the key to the future of the electric shower sector. The market has responded to this change in customer demand with a new take on the electric showers; it’s time to say goodbye to the standard white box on the wall. The new generation of electric showers combines designer looks and quality manufacture, no longer the poor relation to more glamourous mixers. Launched last year, our Aqualisa Lumi™ and Sassi™ Electric are two examples of new generation electric, with integral light and customisable colour options to complement interior trends. This is where the market is going, so expect more designer electric over the next couple of years as other manufacturers join the party. For installers, new generation electric showers provide another string to the bow. Perhaps a customer has an extension with a small combi boiler that won’t stretch to an additional shower – a clear cut case for electric, but they also want cutting edge style. Designer electric is the answer and not significantly more expensive than the old style, white box. www.mclink.co.uk/963-541 ENQUIRY-Card 541

Over 10% of our schoolchildren have a continence problem. One in 10 senior primary teachers report at least one of their pupils was still not toilet trained. Bladder & bowel conditions are proven to impact on physical, emotional and psychological health & wellbeing+, and impact on a child’s education: anecdotal evidence implies up to 25 % of a child’s reception education could be missed because they are being taken out of class to be changed. “Soiling has other considerations too,” observes Robin Tuffley, marketing manager @ Clos-o-Mat, which manufactures the UK’s biggest-selling wash & dry toilet. “What about hygiene, not just for the child, but the member of staff helping them? What about privacy? Independence? Learning personal care skills? “Good Practice guidelines* say that ‘teachers need to find a way of ensuring the child has access to a ‘user friendly’ toilet that affords privacy’. That is actually quite simple- switch a conventional WC for a wash & dry toilet. The built-in douching and drying ensures the child is thoroughly cleaned, to a consistent standard, without a member of staff having to wipe them with toilet tissue. It gives a more hygienic and dignified solution for everyone involved.” That opinion is backed up by real-life experience. Tor Bank School, for example, has had three Closo-Mats installed. Explains principal Colm Davis, “Our philosophy is about safeguarding our pupils whilst giving them the opportunity to be independent and confident. The Clos-o-Mats help achieve that, give them a sense of privacy and ensure they are clean if they get in a mess. Because the toilets clean the user, they help with their health too: we get fewer rashes from

ineffective wiping. It also means teaching staff can spend more time on pupils’ classroom education as they won’t need to accompany them on toilet trips. To me, it is a best value solution.” Clos-o-Mat is the biggest manufacturer of wash & dry toilets in the UK, with its equipment having the most effective wash available. Its brand-leading Palma Vita can be fitted with a raft of accessories to help children, able or with special needs, including paediatric support systems. The Lima Lift offers the performance benefits of the Palma Vita, but is fully heightadjustable, enabling it to be lowered for small infants or raised for adolescents and adults. Clos-o-Mat has 55 years’ experience in delivering personal hygiene solutions. The company has developed a range of equipment and support services that today meets every need, at home and away, from adapting a domestic bathroom through to a full specification hygiene room with a changing bench and ceiling track hoist in educational buildings, or similar (Changing Places) facility in commercial and public venues.

DOUBLE FIGURE MILESTONE FOR BENCHMARX AS IT CELEBRATES 10TH ANNIVERSARY With the company building up to its 180th branch opening later in the year, Benchmarx puts its success down to its ongoing aim to ‘save the trade time and money’. The ethos of offering outstanding customer service, streamlining the ordering process and enhancing the current level of customer service - all coupled with the right product mix available at the best price continues to see the company go from strength to strength into the next decade. Terry Brown, Commercial Director at Benchmarx Kitchen and Joinery, looks at what has made the business a success over the last decade: “Since Benchmarx was first established in 2006, we have been extremely proud of the quality of our kitchens and the professional, reliable service we offer to the trade; which in turn has seen us establish a loyal customer base and repeat business. In a recent survey we were delighted to hear qualities such as ‘reliable’, ‘professional’, ‘competitive’, ‘efficient’ and ‘helpful’ all repeatedly

reinforced by our trade customers. “Despite growing at a fast rate over the past 10 years, we have made a point of never being complacent. Indeed, at the start of 2012 and with a network of 85 branches under our belts, we wanted to provide our customers with an even better service than ever before. “This saw us take a step back to review how and where improvements could be made, and this process remains ongoing to ensure we continue to change in line with our customers’ needs. “Streamlining our delivery service and guaranteeing that our best-selling kitchen ranges and accompanying ranges would be available within 48 hours, and backing this up with the ability to supply anything missing within 24 hours are just some of the approaches put in place to go that extra mile. “Add to this high stock levels of our most favoured product ranges and a watchful check on what is selling well,

and it means our kitchen fitters are able to get their hands on the products in demand, exactly when they need it. In this business it certainly pays to be prepared so we constantly monitor interior trends too, to ensure that all of our products hit the mark and give installers the tools to meet their customers’ demands head on across a variety of price options. This is all without having to waste time or money searching the marketplace.

As Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery celebrates its milestone 10th Anniversary, the trade only supplier of high quality kitchens has seen its business grow from its first branch in Croydon in 2006, to over 170 branches across the country in 2016.

means our dedicated team of showroom advisors and designers are on hand to answer questions and provide additional support when needed. “With more branch openings planned for the next few months, we hope this will give even more installers the opportunity to take advantage of the Benchmarx offering. Charity Support “Benchmarx has always believed that if you are in a position to help make a difference, then you should. The company-wide partnership with the Macmillan charity aims to raise £3 million for this fantastic cause through staff initiatives as well as branch activity.

“Due to the costs involved, buying a kitchen remains a big decision for homeowners. So the fact that installers have the opportunity to bring their customers into a showroom so they can view the different ranges and options up close is certainly a major part of our success.

Chris Larkin, Managing Director, says: “With quality and service at Benchmarx’ heart and with many branches due to open before the end of the year, there are many more developments ahead. We certainly hope to be celebrating another 10 years of success and beyond.”

“It is this unique proposition not only makes us to stand out from our competitors, but it also delivers a quick and efficient process for the installer as both they and the homeowner can discuss the different kitchen options after seeing them first-hand. It also

VEKA fabricator Darwen Windows gets Secured By Design

PVC-U wins over aluminium in prestigious new build

Aluminium Sash Windows Alumatherm Windows Ltd

More than 500 PVC-U windows were chosen for an 11-storey residential new-build, X1 The Exchange, close to the prestigious Media City in Salford Quays after the developer was presented with specification and costings that showed the material to be an economic alternative to the aluminium frames originally specified. The windows, as well as 100 doors, were made and installed by Spectus Approved Window Contractor Jade Windows using the Spectus Elite 70 bevelled system with 8.8mm laminated acoustic glass and additional EPDM seal. An untextured Anthracite grey (RAL 7016) foil was specified by planners as a close visual match when replacing aluminium, as Jade’s Ryan Fozard explained: “It is happening more and more that a client may change to PVC-U when they are shown the performance against the cost, so of course it is important to have a visual match as well.

With the slimmest and most authentic sash window in the UK, a choice of astragal bars available, our 36mm slim meeting rail and a choice of 43mm or 90mm deep bottom rail, we’re getting you closer to the authentic look preferred by customers and local planners alike. Clever profile design and bonded glass to the sash gives incredible strength. More glass area, less frame, retractable parting bead (UK first) and 45° Puttyline external sash finish all gets you close to the original wooden box sash window look. Our aluminium sash windows are perfect for modern new builds, commercial projects, schools, care homes and social housing to name a few. The Alumatherm design is a culmination of over 55 years experience in aluminium sash windows and continuous research and development. ALUMATHERM... AS AUTHENTIC AS IT GETS

Spectus challenges aluminium with new PVC-U flush tilt & turn

. View our publication online at www.McDermottPublishing.com . July 2016 .

Spectus has issued a direct challenge to aluminium windows in high-rise with the launch of its Flush Tilt & Turn PVCU system, that has a similar look to the metal but with significant benefits including thermal performance and cost. With U-Values as low as 0.8 W/m2K (WER A++) achievable, window openings up to 1,450mm wide X 2,300mm high, and many other unique features, the Spectus Flush Tilt & Turn is ideal for new-build apartments, housing, hotels, health education and public buildings, where aluminium or composites might otherwise have been first choice. Its sleek external flush styling and square edge appearance gives it a close visual match to aluminium, especially with the smooth grey foiled finish on grey base as a stock option, but the profile also benefits from Spectus’s extensive range of 28 other foils – one of the widest ranges of any PVC-U system.

Rockdoor Posts Record Sales GAP, the leading independent stockist and manufacturer of PVC-U building products, has announced record first half sales of its flagship Rockdoor range of composite doors. Widely recognised by homeowners and installer as the UK’s most secure and thermally efficient composite door, like-for-like Rockdoor sales have leaped by 28% during the last six months following a brand refresh and the launch of two new styles. Rockdoor owes its success to unique features such as its carbon fibre reinforced frame and S-Glaze technology; all of which have helped it to become the composite door brand of choice among installers who rely on its strength, energy efficiency and design style. Among the brand refresh initiatives was a clever new interactive website that enables homeowners to get a sense for the features and benefits of the door and why they need it.

Cleantouch version of carbon trust certified window handle Mila’s recently launched Carbon Trust certified GRIP™ (Green Reliable Intelligent Polymer) espag window handle is now available in an innovative CleanTouch anti-microbial version specifically for use in schools, healthcare environments, offices and public buildings. It is the only window handle on the market protected with hygienic, antimicrobial silver ion technology from BioCote. As the leaders in this sector, BioCote already supplies familiar brands such as Dyson, Akzo Nobel, Formica and Rehau, and is the only antimicrobial supplier which requires partners to have their products validated before launch and then retested on a regular basis during production.

The WarmCore Window proves even more popular than the door! Following its official launch at FIT 2016, the WarmCore Window from The Synseal Group has proven as popular as the original WarmCore folding sliding door, if not even more so. With an impressive 14 launch partners signed up prior to the launch date, a further 7 have bought into the WarmCore brand since seeing the Window first hand at the show. Andy Jones, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Synseal explains: “We had a fair idea that the Window was going to hit the ground running, as it has been eagerly anticipated. The unprecedented success of the WarmCore aluminium folding sliding door proved to us there was a real desire in the market for innovation and the introduction of the Window was the logical next step for us – driven by feedback from our customers. “WarmCore technology is helping redefine expectations of aluminium

windows and doors. With more traditional aluminium products, you have to make a choice between thermal efficiency and aesthetics – with WarmCore, you get both. Built around a full width thermal core which maximises the use of lower conductivity material - WarmCore is 25%* more efficient at keeping heat in homes than traditional aluminium solutions. Yet it doesn’t compromise strength as the outer faces of the profile are high grade aluminium, positioned to add the greatest structural rigidity. Stamped with the BSI Kitemark, WarmCore casement windows are also available in a ‘flush sash’ option for the ultimate in clean, modern aesthetics. Using a stepped outerframe, the sash sits on the same plane as the rest of the window,

www.mclink.co.uk/963-143 ENQUIRY-Card 143

creating a pure, cutting-edge look to this high performance window system. In addition where two flush sashes meet, WarmCore uses a feature mullion - which echoes the flush sash feature, creating a precise bead line in-between the two windows. “For any fabricator or installer who missed the launch at FIT, we’d invite you to contact us to come to see WarmCore for yourself at our Huthwaite showroom. Alternatively, we’d encourage any fabricator or installer who wants to understand the benefit of adding this must-have product to their range, to get in touch with us directly to find out who your nearest WarmCore supplier is. With 21 high profile and wellrespected regional and national fabricators now offering the system, we have a secure supply chain in place across the UK. Don’t miss out on the early adopter benefits this new market can open up for your business.” For further information on the Synseal Group, visit www.synseal.com or call 01623 443200. www.mclink.co.uk/963-557

Eagle Brae Log Cabins have NorDan windows “We chose NorDan to supply the timber windows for our 8 new log cabins, because of their long term proven track record for quality craftsmanship, “says Mike SpencerNairn, owner and developer of Eagle Brae. “NorDan offered us the flexibility we needed in bespoke design for our unique log cabin structures.”

v All c

Eagle Brae is a unique development of log cabins built as a five star holiday letting business 23 miles west of Inverness, near Beauly, in the Scottish Highlands. Mike Spencer-Nairn used Western Red Cedar logs specially sourced from British Columbia, Canada. “Each cabin was built by master craftsmen using authentic Norwegian techniques,” he continues. “None of the logs has been through a sawmill meaning every log’s natural beauty hastobeen retained Designed create an in the cabin.” No surprise then, that NorDan windows were used to complete the building envelope, with their precision manufacture and flexibility of specification. Eagle Brae cabins have side swing timber windows and outward opening double doors, with some fixed Ebony lights, fromThe NorDan all finished with an aluminium cladding to extend their life in use. “NorDan was also able to customise the finishing options for us to meet our specific aesthetic requirements. It was this ability of NorDan to respond to our unique design requirements coupled with their trusted reputation for quality which convinced us to go with NorDan. If and when we build some more log

cabins, we will use NorDan again,” continues Mike. The log cabins specified black handles, which were a special order for this project. “There was a desire to have the windows as traditional as possible, with no modern sliding hinge mechanisms visible. So we recommended our side swing window, which uses hinges similar to a door,” says Calum Sinclair from NorDan’s Aberdeen office. “The client was also extremely keen for all window handles to have a black finish instead of our standard more contemporary chrome finish. Our internal vents were also powder coated to match the windows so there was no visible contrast on the inside.” NorDan manufactures timber windows out of 8 factories across Europe.

Founded in Norway in 1926, the firm is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. Products have a certified long life in use, largely because they are expertly manufactured from high quality slow growing raw material with dense woodgrain. And only the best parts of the timber logs are used in manufacture. That stock which passes quality control is finger jointed and glued before being transported to production. NorDan’s unique pressure treatment process for the timber is the single main factor their industry-leading warranties which protect the product from fungi and rot. www.nordan.co.uk www.eaglebrae.co.uk www.mclink.co.uk/963-560 ENQUIRY-Card 560

PATIOMASTER MEMBER SUPPLIES DOORS FOR IMPRESSIVE LLANDUDNO HOUSE RE-MODEL A North-Wales based Architect called in the services of PatioMaster North West recently, when re-modelling his home. The project, a modern garden room extension with an atrium roof light, was at the home of Matthew Jones, who owns his own Architects Practice. PatioMaster North West, one of PatioMaster’s nine dealers across the UK and Ireland, fabricated the 4 pane patio doors in slate grey on white sliding doors, while local installer company, A55 Plastics, completed the installation and as homeowner Matthew explains, the results are stunning:

“We are really pleased with the finished results, the doors met all our expectations in terms of fit, finish and quality and the project was completed on time and within budget; one of the reasons we choose PatioMaster North West in the first place.” PatioMaster North West fits doors into any home and style of building; another reason why Matthew choose the company: “Our main aim with the remodel was to let as much light in to the

room as possible, and give us optimal views out to the garden with the maximum opening for nice days. We went for 2.4m high floor to window doors to achieve a maximum view of the sky, and the grey exterior gives the look of aluminium and the white inside lends a clean, minimal look and complements the property perfectly.” Installers A55 Plastics have been installing new plastics, windows and conservatories to customers across North Wales for 20 years. Mark Leach explains: “The installation took about half a day, and we were recommended to the homeowner via a mutual friend who we had also done some installation work for.” PatioMaster offers a comprehensive support package to its fabricators, and by working through a small network of local craftsmen, also offers a dedicated and local service for homeowners.

Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems thermally broken Comar 7P.i Folding Sliding Door (FSD) Smooth operation and solutions to meet the design brief, the aluminium Comar 7P.i Folding/Sliding Door (FSD) system offers a myriad of possibilities for commercial or residential projects.

Comar 7P.i FSD provides a versatile moveable wall that allows space and light into any project. Even in the winter months the glazed facade offers light as well as keeping the building insulated through the trade-marked Comar 7P.i thermal break technology. By merging aesthetically pleasing features such as robust, yet slim, aluminium profiles with feature-laden operational gearing from the Comar 7P.i FSD system, you have the capability to design open-in or open-out stacking doors, folding and sliding from the top or the bottom rollers. Open-in stacking doors are advisable when the doors must operate within the building plane; open-out stacking doors can be used so the doors do not interfere with interior furnishings. If bottom rolling options are required the gear is housed in the floor which offers uninterrupted traffic flow compliant with the very latest disability and equalities act legislation. Tophung operating gear would be selected for larger sized doors. For additional safety the doors when folding offer a finger

protection solution. To cater for different apertures the Comar 7P.i FSD offers from 2 to 8 sliding doors in either direction with an optional rebated door for day to day ease of entry. Each leaf can be up to 1100mm wide, creating market leading potential spans with minimum sight-lines. Door heights can be up to 2400mm, but depending on wind loading larger sizes can be created; this is especially useful for floor to ceiling glazing or to create an entrance of distinction. Glazing sizes of up to 62mm are catered for, which means that triple glazed or acoustic glasses can be specified as well as panels or standard double glazed units. Due to the trade-marked P.i thermal efficiency U-values are well below the required Building Regulations targets. The doors and jamb are both adjustable to enable long-term smooth operation and to adapt to different building tolerances. Comar: Designed for Performance, Backed by Delivery

Opened in 2000 at a cost of £15 million, indoor log flume ‘Valhalla’ is one of the 120-year-old Pleasure Beach’s most popular rides, offering visitors a thrilling Viking-themed journey. The external façade features a ‘waterfall’ that dispenses 12,000 gallons of water per minute, splashing the covered waiting area below. It was this area of the ride that was upgraded with an overlay of Kemperol V210, a cold liquid applied waterproofing system that bonds directly to the substrate and forms a reinforced monolithic membrane that cannot delaminate and offers a BBA-accredited service life of 25 years.

BLACKPOOL PLEASURE BEACH IS THRILLED WITH KEMPER SYSTEM SOLUTION Two of the popular rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach have been upgraded to ensure they continue to thrill families of visitors for another generation thanks to Kemper System’s Kemperol V210 liquid waterproofing membrane.

Comments Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s Construction Manager, Tim Currey: “The volume of water constantly pouring on the queue shelter roof for Valhalla is far in excess of what any roof would normally have to deal with, so it needed a robust waterproofing membrane with no vulnerable seams and no risk of water penetration.” The Kemperol V210 cold liquid resin system was applied by roofing contractor, Castle Roofing, in a single wet-on-wet process, applying resin immediately followed by a flexible reinforcement fleece and then more resin to ensure complete saturation of

the fleece before the membrane was allowed to cure. The same system was used to overlay the roof of the theme park’s Alice in Wonderland family ride, which was originally constructed in the 1950s and was suffering water ingress in some areas. Here, Castle Roofing cut out sections of the existing felt roof where it had split, filling these areas will a repair mortar made of Kemper System’s D Primer and quartz sand, before installing the Kemperol V210 system as an overlay. Tim adds: “The Kemperol V210 enabled the contractor to work on small sections of roof at a time and manage the programme around the operational demands of the business, while providing a robust, durable and flexible waterproofing solution.”

Alumasc’s Euroroof rises to the challenge for Bradford’s Hovis Factory Alumasc’s Euroroof waterproofing system has been installed on the 3,200 m2 roof at Hovis’ prestigious bread-baking factory in the heart of Bradford, protecting this iconic building against water ingress and helping maintain the viability of bread production at the site in Gain Lane, Bradford.

The factory’s previous roof waterproofing system had become severely compromised over time and needed replacing after multiple patchwork repairs to extend its serviceable life. Alumasc and their Leeds-based contractor Mitie Roofing were chosen to design, supply and install a complete new roof waterproofing system without impacting the working of this busy food-production facility. The first task was to take off the old mineral-surfaced waterproofing Supplying roof through partnerships system and prepare the existing roof deck. Mitie Roofing then laid a Euroroof vapour barrier to provide immediate protection for this fully operational factory, and replaced the original skylights with Naturalight Barrel Vault roof lights, so that production could be maintained without interruption. Next, a fully engineered Alumasc PIR thermal insulation scheme was laid, before the Euroroof Rapid waterproofing system was torch-applied. Hovis Group Engineering Operations Manager Graham Thomas commented: “Thanks to Alumasc and Mitie Roofing, we now have a high-quality roof waterproofing system protecting our iconic breadbaking factory in the heart of Bradford, where we produce our much-loved Hovis bread products”. Following the successful installation of this Alumasc waterproofing system, it is now being rolled out at other Hovis buildings including the company’s main office block. www.mclink.co.uk/963-571 ENQUIRY-Card 571

Flow Controls Deliver SuDS Design for Challenging Llanelli Housing Development Engineers took a pragmatic approach to designing surface water drainage at Taylor Wimpey’s new Parc-y-Strade housing development on the outskirts of Llanelli, South Wales. Using Hydro-Brake® vortex flow control technology to engineer distributed surface water storage and attenuation across the low-lying, flat site, the development infrastructure satisfies Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) principles. The high-density development of 355 homes is situated in a coastal plain that could be prone to flooding. The consulting engineers QuadConsult Limited specified 29 Hydro-Brake® Flow Controls to control surface water and manage underground storage across the site. The area, on the western side of Llanelli town centre, is located near the River Loughor inlet with extensive coastal wetlands and could be threatened by flooding. As a result of the flat topography, drainage flow is a major concern. To help improve this, the whole site was built up by circa 900mm. Even so, the invert levels of the discharge points are three metres or more below development levels. Situated on the historic former Llanelli Scarlets Rugby Football Club stadium pitch, the Parc-y-Strade site is being built in three phases, each phase

discharging separately to the receiving watercourse – the Cille Stream, which was de-culverted as part of the development to provide an effective flood mitigation measure for the area as a whole. Consulting engineer Richard John of QuadConsult developed the detailed drainage solution for the development site: “It’s a typical coastal plain location with a high water table due to the tidal range and the estuary. Rainfall is about 1150 mm a year, peaking in winter, so an 8.7 hectare site with numerous access roads and impermeable areas will have a considerable amount of water to deal with,” he explains. “In such a high-density, flat site, with many hard surfaces, achieving the desired attenuation with a predominantly soft scheme using many ponds would have been difficult and

would also have occupied valuable building land. “In addition, maintenance and adoption of such features can pose a problem to the relevant authorities, who are happier with the known characteristics of engineered drainage. “We specified the Hydro-Brake® Flow Controls to provide distributed storage and attenuation throughout the site and maintain discharge volume within the planning consent limits. HydroBrake® Flow Controls with their low maintenance requirements are accepted for adoption by Welsh Water, so were the obvious choice. A number of modular block storage tanks collect surface water from private roads, roofs and driveways. They are sized to accommodate rainfall events greater than the 30 year return period storm up-to-and-including the 100year return period event (including an

allowance for climate change) and are located under non-adoptable areas. The storage discharges to the adoptable sewer network via a total of 28 76 mm Hydro-Brake® Flow Controls with a maximum design flow of 3 l/s. The adoptable sewer network collects the surface water and conveys it to the adoptable attenuation structures for temporary storage where a HydroBrake® Optimum attenuates the final discharge to the receiving watercourse at a maximum 13.9 l/s/ha to meet the planning requirements. For more information about the Hydro-Brake® Optimum and other stormwater management products please call 01275 337937, email enquiries@hydro-int.com or visit www.hydro-int.com. www.mclink.co.uk/963-576

Barnsley Hospital gets support from the New Guardian Twin Handrail Yeoman Shield’s new Guardian Twin Handrail was installed as part of the ward refurbishment project recently undertaken at Barnsley Hospital, South Yorkshire.

A 350+ bed hospital built in the 1970’s and serving a quarter of a million people in the Barnsley area, the hospital demands a constant regime of maintenance throughout its premises. Maintaining its high standards, Barnsley Hospital have improved the surroundings and facilities in 6 of the hospital wards, including the discharge unit, female trauma and elective orthopaedic unit. As part of the refurbishment project Yeoman Shield were employed to remove the old bump rail and handrails and replace them with the dual purpose Guardian Twin Handrail to corridors and waiting areas throughout the 6 wards. The twin handrail was supplied with a 50mm dia. PVCu upper handrail for support to those who need it and a lower 125mm deep protection rail which standing slightly forward of the handrail, offers protection to both the wall décor and the handrail itself, minimising on repair and replacement. Supplied in a Pastel Blue colour with contrasting accessories in Pebble Grey the Guardian Twin Handrail from Yeoman Shield was complemented with matching 200mm protection

ALTRO STANDS THE TEST OF TIME IN HISTORIC SCHOOL The proven combination of Altro WhiterockTM hygienic wall cladding and Altro Stronghold 30TM safety flooring has been so successful in the kitchen at one of the world’s oldest schools, that after 15 years of service it’s been chosen again for a total refurbishment. The King's School in Ely, Cambridgeshire, is a co-educational independent day and boarding school. It was founded in 970 AD. Fifteen years ago, the school’s ‘monastic barn’ kitchen was fitted with Altro Whiterock White and Altro Stronghold 30 to provide a high level of safety, hygiene and aesthetics. More recently, in 2014, Altro Whiterock was installed around the lift shaft of a dumb waiter in the kitchen. The school has been so happy with the long term performance of Altro Whiterock and Altro Stronghold 30 together that there was no hesitation in selecting the integrated system of compatible hygienic wall cladding and safety flooring again when the entire kitchen recently underwent a refit. As the system is fully integrated, it fits together perfectly to provide a hygienic, watertight solution for commercial kitchens.

Shirley Jolly, the school’s catering manager, says: “This is a busy commercial kitchen, which produces 1,600 meals per day with three sittings, so the flooring and wall cladding has to be hygienic, tough, durable, practical, easy to clean and have superb safety credentials. Plus of course it needs to be suitable for use in a very old building — our kitchen dates back to 970 AD. “Fifteen years ago we had Altro Whiterock installed three quarters of the way up the kitchen walls, and we have been delighted with it over that time. It’s hygienic and has been very easy to maintain, just needing a regular wipe down. It’s proven to be ideal for our busy commercial kitchen. For us it’s a tried and tested product. “So we definitely wanted to use it again for the refurbishment, but this time we wanted it floor to ceiling — giving total encapsulation. This meant that we could cover all the hard-to reach places around the doors and windows - and there are some tricky areas as this is a very old structure - to make cleaning as easy as possible and further improve hygiene.” Shirley continues: “The Altro Stronghold 30 safety flooring was also a very good choice for us 15 years ago. As a safety flooring it’s second to none, plus it’s

incredibly hard-wearing and nice looking as well. It was still in very good condition, but we decided to upgrade it with new Altro Stronghold 30 for the refit.” Altro’s integrated floor and hygienic wall cladding system offers the best possible protection against bacteria, bugs and vermin. It makes cleaning easier too. Designed to address the issues commonly found in kitchens – slips, contamination, cleaning and maintenance, the Altro system doesn’t just protect the people who use it; it also protects the environment and those responsible for the health and safety of employees and visitors. The Altro wall cladding and flooring for the refurbishment were installed by Altro Whiterock Premier Installer Elite Interiors. Contracts co-ordinator Dave Barnard, says: “This school kitchen is the perfect example of how Altro Whiterock and Altro Stronghold 30 work together to create a long-lasting, safe and hygienic environment in commercial applications. Altro Whiterock White is the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impact resistant, groutfree and easy to clean. Its smooth white surface and classical purity make it a

timeless choice for any interior. The product is Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) approved and is made from a high-quality, food-safe PVCu polymer that can handle temperatures up to 60°C. It meets all current European Union (EU) Directives on health and hygiene. This makes it particularly suitable for use in commercial kitchens especially combined with Altro Stronghold 30. Altro Stronghold 30 safety flooring achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance, and is designed to minimise risk in wet and greasy conditions for the lifetime of the flooring. As well as helping to keep staff safe from slips, it also helps reduce their fatigue, thanks to its 3mm thickness which provides noise reduction and comfort underfoot.
