FAKRO Balcony Window
The FAKRO FGH-V P2 Balcony Window is the low cost contemporary alternative to a dormer. In addition to its contemporary design, the window presents none of the attendant planning issues of a dormer while its light weight places far less stress on the roof structure. The upper sash opens in the same way as a top hung window while the lower one tilts forward to reveal built-in balustrades. Importantly, when closed these remain neatly hidden and are visible neither from the interior nor exterior.
The FGH-V has a supporting hinge mechanism which enables the upper sash to be left open at any point up to 45°. The operating handle is in the base of the sash for added user convenience.
Usable in roofs with a pitch between 35 degrees and 55 degrees, both the upper and lower sash are fitted with a laminated P2 safety glazing unit. The FGH-V P2 is also fitted with the V40P automatic air vent and the topSafe® system of hinge and lock reinforcement for added burglary protection.
Overall dimensions are 94cm x 255cm.
Mira Designer Grab Bars
Mira Showers – the UK’s leading manufacturer of showering products and accessories – has responded to customer demand by adding a set of stainless steel grab bars to its comprehensive range of products designed for the housing sector.
Their contemporary design complements the sleek, modern aesthetic of Mira’s shower ranges and are unobtrusive additions to the bathroom; matching products such as the company’s premium shower seat. Without compromising on the robust standards required, these bars will take a load of up to 130kg (20 stone 6 lb). The result is that showering rooms can be retrofitted with grab bars that will look as if they are part of the original design.
Suitable for both domestic and light commercial applications such as hotels, the bars reflect Mira’s commitment to both retailers and customers, providing retailers the opportunity to ‘sell up’ additional accessories and enabling the elderly and less able-bodied to shower in greater confidence and safety.
Available in three sizes – 300, 450 and 600mm – the bars are tested to British Standard BS EN 12182 (British Standards for ‘assistive products for persons with disability’) and are supplied with quality grade stainless steel fixings for durability.
The GRC Design glass radiator
The Glass Radiator Company has added a fabulous new glass panel radiator to its range. The GRC Design is made especially for use in a bathroom but could also be used in a kitchen. This is due to it coming as standard with two towel rails which are off-set for perfect towel placement.
The GRC Design is available in black or ivory white, in two sizes. It is very competitively priced and high quality, looks great and also comes in a box complete with everything you need including a fitting template. Being controlled wirelessly using infra-red technology means the temperature can be controlled to within one or two degrees of what it is set at. The radiator gets to this temperature gradually and therefore uses less energy, in turn reducing your bill!
The radiator retails from £395 including delivery.

BalcoNano® heavy duty glass cleaner
Balcony Systems, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of glass balustrading and curved sliding patio doors, has introduced the BalcoNano® heavy duty glass cleaner – the seriously-strong answer to restoring heavily-contaminated glass surfaces back to as good as new.
Some glasses with severe surface deterioration and corrosion caused by deeply-embedded dirt, grime and deposits that have accumulated over time can be restored by using Balcony’s unique, acid-based product. Easily-applied using a cloth, the BalcoNano® heavy duty cleaner loosens and releases these firmly-ingrained contaminants that can be difficult to remove with standard cleaners. Within minutes, the glass surface can be polished dry and restored to its natural shiny appearance.
The BalcoNano® heavy duty cleaner is only the first step in restoring the glass. Once the glass surface is clean from all contaminants, the BalcoNano® self-cleaning glass coating should be applied to protect the surface from future contamination and maintain its sparkle.
The BalcoNano® heavy duty cleaner is supplied in 500ml child-safe bottles. The BalcoNano® self-cleaning glass coating is available in convenient sachets for self-application; this coating forms a hard, clear and super-smooth protective layer to transform ordinary glass into self-cleaning glass.
