Vokèra by Riello
Offering outputs up to 40kW, Vokèra has launched the Vision Plus condensing boiler range. The collection includes stainless steel heat exchanger technology on selected models to offer high flexibility in performance and installation for a wide variety of domestic applications.
The range includes a choice of seven boilers: four combination boilers with outputs of 25-40kW and three system boilers with outputs of 20-30kW, all with a standard seven-year warranty. The units also feature a click-fit flue system for easy installation across the range, and combination models with a universal pipe connection layout.
Smartply Siteprotect and SiteProtect Plus OSB3 panels are specially developed by Medite Smartply as site hoarding solutions. With security and durability in mind, the panels can be produced up to three metres tall and are structurally sound, meaning it won’t bend, break or allow a site to be easily accessed by unauthorised people.
Both versions have been developed to provide a smooth, flat surface to allow suitable, clearly visible signage to be incorporated easily, and on both sides in the case of SiteProtect Plus.
Loctite PC 6315 and Loctite PC 6262
To help reduce slips and falls in the workplace, Henkel has added Loctite PC 6315 and Loctite PC 6262 to its coatings range. Both create an anti-slip coating on concrete, asphalt, wood, ceramic, fibreglass and metal surfaces, and they are suitable for use in dry service temperatures from -29°C to +60°C.
The solvent-free formulation of Loctite PC 6315 makes it suitable for use across industry and in odour sensitive environments. Loctite PC 6261, meanwhile, is a single-part epoxy, primarily designed for application in areas of high pedestrian footfall or light rolling traffic.
Everyone needs to be cool, dry and safe at work in warm weather to maintain wellbeing and working efficiency on site. Snickers’ lightweight range includes the LITEWork Trousers and Shorts in addition to a special offer ‘two-pack’ of 100% Cotton T-shirts — customers can choose from three different easy-care colour and design options to compliment whatever they are wearing, at work or play.
Hoodies, Sweatshirts and Hi-vis ProtecWork protective wear are also available in a range of styles and colours that are designed to be ‘super-light and quick drying’ with advanced ventilation to keep users cool in the warm.
Knauf Insulation has added to its Earthwool Soffit Linerboard range, to meet the increasing demand for non-combustible insulation in spaces such as car parks, stadiums and commercial units. The collection now has a lower thermal conductivity of 0.034 W/mK, and is said to be less susceptible to thermal bridging thanks to a new fixing method which uses tube washers in the corners of each slab instead of traditional all-steel fixings.
The board is available in thicknesses from 50 to 220mm, with an additional base layer available to meet build-up requirements. There are two options available — Standard and Extra — depending on the aesthetics and impact resistance required.
Surface Sanitiser Spray
Formulated to kill 99.9% of bacteria in industrial and commercial environments, Bostik has launched a new Surface Sanitiser Spray. Containing 80% alcohol, the fast-drying formula complies with sanitiser standards EN1276, EN14476 and EN1650.
Alcohol-based sanitisers have been found to be effective at combating many types of bacteria and enveloped viruses, including coronaviruses, influenza, SARS and hepatitis. Quick and easy to apply across large areas using the portable spray canister, it dries in just five minutes. The 400ml aerosol will cover up to 14m2 and is available to order in shelf-ready cartons of twelve whilst an FSDU containing ten cartons is also available to help drive sales in store.
Power System Filter
Glow-worm’s patent-pending Power System Filter has been engineered to fit into tighter spaces easily and discreetly. Specifically designed for use with Glow-worm boilers, the filter — which is fitted horizontally — offers flexible siting, quick installation and easy dirt removal.
Compared to classic filter designs, a smaller portion of the filter is visible once fitted so that it looks less intrusive and gives installers more siting options. The filter can be easily dismantled in the middle to remove the magnet sheath for cleaning.
Silent shower pump technology
Triton Showers’ AS2000SR Thermostatic Power Shower was recently granted Quiet Mark approval for its silent pump technology, in recognition of its commitment to providing quieter pumped showering solutions.
Marketing Director Tina Simpson said: “In homes with low mains pressure, where a power shower may be required, we’re aware that the motor can be quite noisy. The silent power shower has been designed (to ensure) no unwanted disruptions at any time of the day or night thanks to significantly quieter operation, without compromising on quality or performance.”
Developed to provide an exceptional finish with today’s water-based paints, all Expression brushes feature Max Stroke — a synthetic filament blend comprising a mix of different types of filament.
The full range includes: Expression Flat brush, a longer wooden beavertail handle provides a well-balanced brush for comfort and a flexible grip; Expression Angled brush, featuring a longer wooden beavertail handle for a balanced hold coupled with a MaxStroke filament which has been produced to an angled finish; and Expression Precision which are designed for fast painting on profile surfaces.
Complimenting the growing trend of black trims on shower enclosures and statement black brassware in the bathroom, JT has launched a new Black Waste cover for the JTFusion range of shower trays. The cover is available in 48 size options including square, rectangle, quadrant and offset quadrant. John Schofield, JT’s Sales and Marketing Director, commented: “We are pleased to be expanding our waste colour options, the statement black cover now provides even more of a luxury feel to achieve that sought-after premium bathroom design.”
