RAINWATER TANK TIPS • Install gutter mesh to prevent leaves and debris from blocking gutters • Fit enough gutter outlets on the underside of the gutter to prevent obstruction of water flow • A ‘Leaf Eater’ can be installed onto downpipes. This is a simple and effective way to prevent blockages • Install a tank screen at the tank entry point to filter water and keep mosquitoes and pests out • Consider annual rainfall, roof catchment area and water usage when determining the size of the tank you want to install • Use a tank top up system (if required) to automatically top up the tank with mains water when water levels fall to a designated minimum level • Select a pump system (if required) to distribute water for use inside or outside the home. On simple systems, gravity will do the trick too.

variances will be using a product in which the incidence of deterioration and plug failure into all building materials such as concrete, brickwork, hollow blocks, dry walling and through chipboard is reduced. The plug is made from virgin nylon and not plastic to ensure maximum expansion. It does not allow ‘creep’ by the plastic, with the tendency to move to an area where there is less pressure exerted on it. The result of the ‘creep’ is that the holding power of the plastic anchors is reduced dramatically over time. Furthermore, nylon has a far higher melting point than plastic, and is unaffected by UV rays, moisture or temperature changes. In many dynamic applications, the nylon functions almost like a shock absorber and expands into the drilled hole to create a solid anchor. This then does not damage or pulverise the brickwork during operational movement. Kuhlmann adds that many leading South African door and gate manufacturers and installers use DuoPower plugs to ensure

A Century of Innovation Master Lock has been manufacturing padlocks for nearly a century. In 1921 Master Lock began manufacturing padlocks and since then has been a worldwide leader in padlock technology and innovation. From the humble padlock, Master Lock has developed many innovations along the way, like the laminated padlock. As materials improved and technology advanced, Master Lock continually added and innovated padlock designs to suit client requirements. There have continually been additions

to the Master Lock range of products and these now include combination padlocks, locker locks, bicycle and motorcycle cables and chains, Cargo straps, bungi cords, high security padlocks and accessories and recently a comprehensive range of water and fire resistant chests and safes has been added. The latest innovation has been the integration of Bluetooth Smart technology into the design of padlocks and allied security products. This is seen as the future of padlock design and once again Master Lock is a leader in this field.
