  • New FAKRO rooflights add contemporary style

     New FAKRO rooflights add contemporary style

    When upgrading thermally inefficient rooflights, FAKRO’s new range of flat roof windows offers a choice of flat or domed profiles. All have a contemporary style, utilise a multi-chamber PVC sash and frame and come in sizes designed to match those being replaced.

    The triple-glazed DRF DU6 has a window U-value of 0.74W/m2K while the DRC-C P2, which offers added burglary resistance through use of a laminated internal pane, is only slightly less impressive at 0.88.

    For smoke evacuation, the DSF DU6 and DSC-C P2 open automatically to a height of 50cm through activation of motors on each side of the frame.

  • Centriflow 3D impeller from Fläkt Woods

    Centriflow 3D impeller from Fläkt Woods

    The new Centriflow 3D mix flow plug fan in Fläkt Woods’ eQ range of Air Handling Units has been developed to give the best possible performance inside an Air Handling Unit.

    The impeller delivers a natural air flow inside the Air Handling Unit where the air stream is not disconnecting from the blade surface either on vacuum or pressure side - assuring minimum turbulence, maximum dynamic pressure conversion and the lowest possible noise level.

    The superior fan characteristics are translated into performance improvements of the eQ range offering increased customer benefits and lower LCC. These include improved energy performance and lower sound remittance. The new plug fan is now implemented into all eQ Prime sizes as standard and the majority of eQ Master sizes with EC, PM, IE2 and IE3 motors.

  • Durapipe Dialock now in ABS

    Durapipe Dialock now in ABS

    Due to the success of its newly launched Dialock valve, Durapipe is now delighted to be offering the innovative product in ABS material. The most technologically advanced diaphragm valve available on the market, the Dialock valve offers genuine innovation to the industrial services sector and is now available in PVC-U, CPVC and ABS materials.

    The Dialock valve has numerous features designed to maximise flow rate, improve accuracy and increase operational efficiency. The most notable is the patented locking handwheel, which allows the valve to be adjusted and locked in over 300 positions, more than any other diaphragm valve on the market.

    The Dialock valve is the most linear diaphragm valve available, with the new internal geometry allowing a substantial increase in flow coefficient values and a reduction in pressure loss. The opening percentage of the valve can be seen immediately by a high visibility graduated optical positioning indicator.

    Completely corrosion resistant, the operating mechanism is manufactured entirely in glass reinforced polypropylene, eliminating the use of metal parts exposed to the external environment, and making the valve suitable for conveying aggressive chemicals in corrosive environments.
