Snickers Workwear

Gore Windstopper Jackets

The new jackets from Snickers Workwear have a fleece-lined interior for warmth and climate control fabric to keep the body warm or comfortably cool when working on site. With a water-repellent fabric, the jacket can be worn on its own or combined with Snickers’ Mid- and Base Layer garments.

It also features stretchable side panels in for comfort and flexibility, with stretch Cordura-reinforced elbows for durability.


Showroom Exclusives

Designed to help stockists maximise sales, Lakes has added two ‘showroom exclusive’ showering spaces — Antigua and Aruba — to its premium Island Collection. The Antigua is a two-metre high slider with high specification design, while the Aruba has all the features of the Antigua with the addition of a side panel.

Sales & Marketing Director Mike Tattam said: “The Antigua and Aruba combine the best in performance and design. With a surge in home improvement activity and a shift to multi-generational households, we’re confident these new ‘showroom exclusive’ products will achieve maximum impact in showrooms and give our stockists more opportunities to sell showering spaces for today’s lifestyles.”


Gatemate Euro Profile Long Throw Lock

Designed to provide gate security across all types of applications, the Gatemate Euro Profile Long Throw Lock is claimed to outperform traditional locking systems on a number of levels, and Birkdale has recently been awarded full product patents for the single and double locking versions of the product.

The durable and reliable solution features a hardened core bolt design, with a high-security six pin lock barrel, making it harder to cut through, if attempted. This resistance can be further enhanced with the addition of a High Security Escutcheon, which is also supplied by Birkdale. 



Taking inspiration from iconic local landscapes, Yorkshire-based JT has extended its shower tray offering with a new Naturals range. Responding to the bathroom trend for natural textures and colour schemes, the new stone effect range features four contemporary colourways — Flamborough White, Malham Grey, Runswick Cream and Howarth Black — inspired by Yorkshire’s quintessential landscapes and tones.

The trays include a fast flow one-piece 90mm waste that incorporates a hairtrap for easy cleaning. Optional colour-matched waste covers are available to tailor the perfect bathroom look.
