    Essential consumables for drainage contractors from S1E

    A new range of everyday essential products for drainage contractors is now available from Source One Environmental (S1E). The range includes protective suits and gloves, hand wipes and soap, measuring jugs, buckets, gaffer tape, mixing paddles and utility knives.

    “Expanding our range in this way will help our customers to save time, as they can pick up these items while they’re ordering other products from us,” explained Glenn Cartledge, S1E’s MD.

  • Natural weed control with Katoun Gold from Green-Tech

    Natural weed control with Katoun Gold from Green-Tech

    Green-tech has a new distributor agreement with Belchim Crop Protection to sell Katoun® Gold; an innovative product to the weed management market.

    Katoun® Gold contains Pelargonic Acid; which is found in plants and naturally dries out weeds. It works by destroying the cuticle and damaging the cell membrane, causing dehydration within hours - a really effective natural weed management solution.

    This new product complements Green-tech’s weed management product range which includes a wide range of herbicides and fertilisers; and offers its customer base even more choice.

    Katoun® Gold is a contact product for use on amenity vegetation (bare soil around trees and woody shrubs). It can be applied throughout the year, although optimum results will be achieved when the weather is bright with higher temperatures.

    Chris Swan, Technical and Training Manager, commented: “We are continually looking for new products and solutions that are effective, cost-saving and above all meet our customers' needs and support the landscape environment; Katoun® Gold fits this criteria perfectly.”

  • Stark range of robust softwood seating and tables from Furnitubes

    Stark range of robust softwood seating and tables from Furnitubes

    Stark is a comprehensive range of benches, seats, tables and picnic tables from Furnitubes that can be used independently or as a co-ordinated suite of products. The softwood construction makes for an economical alternative to hardwood seating and table ranges, with pressure treatment providing good medium-term durability. The range is characterised by heavy-duty timber sections with bolted connections to give a tough, almost industrial aesthetic.

    Seating is available in four standard length options and tables in three lengths; both are offered in full-size and junior versions, which are ideal for lower school applications. Products are supplied for bolt-down surface mounting as standard for level sites, or with the option of extended posts for in-ground installation. Complementary picnic tables are available in two styles - one for in-ground fixing and the other a more traditional freestanding A-frame design.

    All timber sections are ‘regularised’ with planed faces and eased edges, with cross-cuts also softened to eliminate sharp edges and reduce the risk of splintering. Softwood can be supplied in a ‘natural’ pressure treated finish which can add a slight green tinge to the pale timber or can be treated with a supplementary saturating oil in a variety of tinted colours.

    A new compact safety sensor for automatic swing doors has been added to GEZE’s suite of activation devices and sensor systems. The GC 342 sensor is a presence detector with a clean and modern line which is aesthetically pleasing while enhancing safe operation.

    The compact sensor, which comes in left and right versions, can be used with all GEZE automatic swing door operators, on door leaves with a width of up to 1600 millimetres.

    It offers reliable detection, even when installed at a height of 3850mm and provides greater protection particularly in front of or behind the door leaf when the door closes and at the secondary closing edges.

    GC 342 is produced in black, white and EV1 (silver tone). It has been fully tested, meets the EN 16005 standard and has been type certified with GEZE automatic swing door systems by the German Association for Technical Inspection (TUV).

  • New finishing options for Urban Front doors

    New finishing options for Urban Front doors

    Urban Front is introducing Afzelia as an addition into the range of durable natural hardwoods in options of grey, teak and walnut stained oil. It looks a bit like a red version of mahogany to begin with, but deepens over time if left in its natural state.

    The Afzelia in two of these finishes is now displayed in the Urban Front showroom on a new door design called the Wave.

    Also new are Vintage Bronze and Aged Silver Bronze finishes. The long process that the finish takes helps the patina mature and is quite changeable creating a slightly different end result every time. A door with both finishes is now on display.

    For more information about these doors please call or email the Urban Front office on 01494778787 and
