  • Durapipe launches new range of clear PVC-U static mixers

    Durapipe launches new range of clear PVC-U static mixers

    With no moving parts, and utilising the energy generated from the flow stream, Durapipe’s new static mixers provide a cost-effective and reliable solution for the continuous mixing of fluids within a pipeline. The highly-engineered product is particularly ideal for chemical dosing applications, where it is vital chemicals are thoroughly mixed with the fluid being conveyed through the pipe system.

    Providing the ability to accurately mix fluids quickly, the static mixer comprises a clear PVC-U housing, offering effective visual monitoring of the mixing process and allowing easy identification of maintenance and cleaning requirements. The innovative product is supplied with PVC-U socket unions for ease of installation onto new or existing pipework, while also enabling the mixer to be easily removed from the system for maintenance, without damaging the pipework.

    Offering complete flexibility for end users, the static mixer offers a pressure rating of up to 16 bar, while it can be supplied with either 6 or 12 mixing elements, depending on the viscosity of the fluid being mixed.

  • Planet Partitioning industrial style panelled glazing

    Planet Partitioning industrial style panelled glazing

    In keeping with the rising popularity in industrial, loft style interiors and furnishings brought over from the other side of the Atlantic, Planet Partitioning has introduced a new line of internal panelled glazed partitioning.

    Planet was early in spotting the trend for open industrial style spaces combined with art deco interior design and used it as inspiration for the new style of partitioning, which uses polyester powder coated aluminium sections to create a ‘window’ effect. Custom sized aluminium sections enable both Planet single and double glazed partitions to have the panelled effect. Clients can now enjoy the industrial style inside their offices.

    The panels still allow for the maximisation of interior light, to create bright open spaces that feel contemporary and clients can customise the thickness of the bands to create the desired amount of privacy, going as light or as bold as they like. The bands can be provided in a complete array of colours, but Planet suggests that black graphic lines look visually striking and feel contemporary.

  • Q-railing’s near-invisible Juliet balcony system

    Q-railing’s near-invisible Juliet balcony system

    Q-railing has launched a new innovative railing system: Easy Glass® View. The minimalist glass Juliet balcony provides uninterrupted views and high fall protection for floor-to-ceiling windows. A key feature of the product is its fast and intuitive installation procedure.

    Easy Glass View benefits from its almost invisible design. Thanks to the slim, vertically positioned profiles holding the glass infill there is nothing to interrupt the view. Nevertheless, this system can be used to create Juliet balconies up to 2,500 mm wide and 1,400 mm high. Like all other Q-railing products, Easy Glass View has been extensively tested and certified. Notably, it meets the particular requirements of BS 6180.

    Easy Glass View has been designed to be suitable for three different installation scenarios: onto a façade, onto a window frame or onto the reveals beside the window. And mounting the glass is quick and easy, with the help of the innovative click feature, the panels are securely clamped into the aluminium profiles.

    The aluminum elements of Easy Glass View are suitable for powder coating, so their colour could be coordinated with other building features for a strong visual statement.

  • 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.
