A new virtual house featuring a range of Grant renewable heating technologies has been added to the supplier’s online Knowledge Hub. Visitors to the site can ‘step inside’ to see how a Grant heat pump, cylinder, radiators and underfloor heating system can be integrated to work together within the home.
The Grant Virtual House is the latest zone to be added to the Knowledge Hub, which the firm launched on its website last summer, alongside content including the Tips & Advice and Education Area zones.
Panic hardware guide
Merchants and installers can now access all the information needed to choose compliant panic and emergency exit hardware solutions in one free guide.
Arrone’s guide contains a three-step product selector to help find the right device for the application, information on outside access devices, advice on positioning hardware on different types of doors and answers to frequently asked technical questions.
Green Homes Grant App
Following the announcement of energy efficiency incentives for homes in England, Rockwool has created an app to generate demand for sales of non-combustible stone wool insulation as part of the UK Government scheme and increase customer traffic to branches.
The app guides installers and homeowners through the Green Homes Grant scheme, with information on the application process, the definition of primary and secondary measures and how to choose products to meet a project’s needs. Tradespeople will also find a materials calculator, installation guidance and a stockist finder for Rockwool’s Trade Insulation Range.
Encon Insulation & Nevill Long has launched a digital product guide to assist contractors, merchants and installers in matching the right products for the right application.
Working in collaboration with industry-leading suppliers, the guide provides customers with a greater understanding of the complete solutions that are available via the distributor. With more technical information listed on the Encon website, the fully interactive digital product guide is easy to use and comprehensively lists the firm’s extensive product range, broken down by product category, each of which is colour-coded to ensure ease of reference.
BPC Building Products
After a year where demand for landscaping products has been higher than ever, BPC Building Products has launched a new brochure which provides full details of the company’s expanded range. The publication details its full range of PowaPost fence spikes and shoes, post extenders, post caps, decking post bases, joist hangers, brackets, clips and cleats as well as the PowaPost Cube and PowaPost Gates.
The company has redesigned the packaging for its Premium Fasteners range to make it every bit as tough as the screws and nails it holds. The packaging is made of engineered cardboard to ensure it is durable enough to endure the rigours of daily life on site.
Resistant to rain, snow, moisture and heat, the cardboard material has water resistant web-corners so the boxes stay solid even after standing on a wet surface for days.
Simpson Strong-Tie has produced a video to demonstrate its new packaging (https://youtu.be/D25pzW_e2yk), whilst the firm has also expanded its collection of video ‘How to’ guides to showcase key product features and share top tips and installation advice.
