When John Penny of JP Joinery was asked by a client to design, build and install a “wow” bespoke kitchen, the one product element he knew he would be utilising was West Fraser‘s CaberWood MDF. Easy to work, and a consistent quality, it doesn’t splinter or chip, meaning there’s very little waste.


The Domus Ventilation HRXE MVHR systems combine supply and extract ventilation in one. They efficiently recover up to 90 per cent of the heat typically lost in waste, stale air and use it to temper the fresh air drawn via an advanced heat exchanger. The filtered, pre-warmed air is distributed to areas of the home such as living rooms and bedrooms, effectively meeting part of the heating load in energy efficient dwellings.


A ready mixed, lightweight, and ready to use filler, Toupret’s Quick Fill for exterior surfaces can be applied to cement, concrete, and masonry, as well as plaster and old painted surfaces.
