PRODUCT NEWS Simpson Strong-Tie’s Quik Drive collated screw system has become the first ever tool to be awarded DeckMark® Plus accreditation from the Timber Decking and Cladding Association.
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. Whilst other open cavity products require cutting to the correct width on site by the user, Multicor Flexible, contains a 28mm deep strip of rocksilk insulation enclosed in a polyethelene bag and fitted into a PVCu plastic body, which allows it to be fitted into position with minimum preparation. 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”
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.

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.
