British Gypsum New Trade Catalogue
Plaster and drylining manufacturer, British Gypsum, has launched a new and improved Trade Catalogue. As well as being re-designed for easier use on site, the updated guide contains the latest technical information for the company’s entire product range, including new innovations such as ACTIVair, a VOC (volatile organic compound) reducing ceiling range.
The Trade Catalogue has been specially created to help tradespeople choose the best solution for the job as easily as possible. As well as featuring practical details such as sizing, weight and product lead times, the guide has been developed for straightforward navigation, with each section colour coded and its contents arranged by order of installation.
The Catalogue has also been created to help users compose product systems in line with British Gypsum’s SpecSure® lifetime guarantee. Unique to British Gypsum, this warranty covers all proprietary systems designed and installed in accordance with the company’s recommendations.

Stannah Midilift SLplus
Stannah has added to its family of platform lifts with a cabin platform lift that uses a hydraulic drive as an ideal, cost-effective choice for low-rise situations.
The NEW Stannah Midilift SLplus is a top-of-the-range version of the hydraulically driven part-enclosed Midilift SL, but with the addition of a full height cabin. No platform space has been lost as light rays and safety beams, around the entrance, protect the traveller without restricting the floor area.
The Midilift SLplus is easy to install in its own structure, needs a very minimal pit of 70mm for level entry or can be supplied with a ramp and requires headroom of just 2500mm. The lift’s drive system is neatly tucked away in a small cabinet that needs very little space. The new platform lift complies with all the latest manufacturing and safety standards and is available directly from Stannah’s manufacturing base in the UK.

Systems are light in weight with downpipes having sleeve connections and self-locking brackets. All are fully recyclable, require minimal maintenance, have a design life which can exceed 50 years and are often less expensive than equivalent systems in aluminium.

Dryzone System from Safeguard Europe
The new Dryzone System from Safeguard Europe offers a faster way to replaster after treating rising damp – in just 24 hours.
The Dryzone System permits ordinary plasterboard to be fixed directly to damp and salt contaminated walls, by using Dryshield cream and Drygrip adhesive. The Dryzone System is breathable and as effective as a sand:cement render. It also allows the use of cement-based plasters to be avoided when treating rising damp on heritage projects.
For more information, contact Safeguard Europe or visit the website. A new RIBA-approved CPD seminar on Rising Damp: Causes and Treatment is also available free-of-charge to specifiers and surveyors.
