  • Quality pipe cutting and cleaning tools now available from S1E

    Quality pipe cutting and cleaning tools now available from S1E

    An exclusive new deal between Finnish manufacturers Renssi and Seweri and UK distributor Source One Environmental (S1E) sees their high-quality pipe cutting and cleaning tools available to the UK market for the first time.

    Both manufacturers are owned by the same group, making similar tools, but Renssi’s tools are made of carbide while the Seweri range is manufactured from stainless steel. Both ranges include chain knockers, with cable and cable covers. The Renssi range also includes brushes, cutters and sandpaper holders, while the Seweri range includes circular chain knockers.

    “These product ranges are of exceptional quality; handmade to the highest standard,” commented Glenn Cartledge, Managing Director of S1E. “They are essential kit for contractors, so they complement our current Pipe Doctor product range.”

    All tools in these ranges are rotated by drill or other mechanical equipment, for swift and effective use. They are ideal for the preparation of pipelines prior to spot repair or lining, and the Renssi cutters can be used to quickly cut holes for lateral connections or to open up a closed pipeline.

  • Cerama Pave permeable pavers from Langford Direct

    Cerama Pave permeable pavers from Langford Direct

    Langford Direct is now able to provide solutions using Cerama Pave, the UK’s first fully permeable recycled ceramic pavers. Unlike other so-called permeable pavers on the market, Cerama Pave has a porous structure allowing water to pass completely through the body of the block, rather than through a channel created between them. It means they absorb rainfall and help prevent stormwater run off.

    The pavers are SUDs compliant, allow groundwater to be replenished and provide water to trees. Made from recycled ceramic waste to exacting standards, they are tested to withstand low temperatures and available in a range of sizes and 10 colours. The pavers are normally smooth yet slip resistant but can be supplied with a tactile surface. Applications include footpaths and cycleways, eco-friendly developments, playgrounds and swimming pool surrounds.
