Available as either a regular, system or combi boiler, in both internal and external models, the LCB700 boasts Navien’s blue flame technology. It is also lightweight (with lift weights from only 58kg), easy to handle and optimised for simple, fast and cost-effective installation. Each oil boiler is also “OpenTherm” ready, allowing for instant access to the latest heating control technology.
The new, retrofittable Crystal aerator from Neoperl, generates a clear laminar water stream from a tap or shower. Free of milky bubbles, often associated with water aerators, this crystal-clear water flow offers the benefit of being very quiet and splash-free, even when the water is falling from a great height.
There are two additions to the Nimbus collection from Leisure Sinks. Each are made from 0.8-gauge 18/10 stainless steel with a highly polished finish and available in single and 1.5-bowl options. The new sinks feature a contemporary sunburst drainer design, which is suitable for both domestic and contract markets.
Based on the existing Ultimate Walk-in shower enclosure system, Kudos has introduced a comprehensive range of over bath showering panels – the Ultimate collection. The units are available in four panel sizes, 700, 750, 800 and 900mm wide, and a height of 1,600mm, in a robust 10mm toughened glass complete with a Lifeshield easy clean coating and a choice of six colour finishes.
The two-zone kit is an extension of the Ideal Standard Halo controls offering and will allow the introduction of internet-connected control into more homes, including larger properties with more complex heating needs. For homeowners, this will provide the option to set and adjust multiple heating schedules and temperature settings for different areas of the home, and is compatible with the manufacturer’s Logic and Vogue combi boilers.
CLEANER AND INHIBITOR
Just one bottle of Fernox 265ml Protector F1 and Cleaner F3 treats an average sized UK home, with the capacity to clean and inhibit up to 100 litres of system water. The new smaller sized bottle continues to use proven formulations that have successfully treated over half a million homes, and each bottle will treat systems with up to 12 radiators or 190 sqm of underfloor heating.
INSTALLER LOYALTY CLUB
Following the launch of its installer-focused Loyalty Club, Stelrad has now extended the initiative to include premium Henrad products as well. Points are accrued on purchases, which can then be redeemed for rewards, which include branded clothing and tools, or they can exchange them for products.
The Knipex BiX cuts plastic pipes and sealing sleeves without shavings and is so compact that it fits in one hand. The blade can be used in two positions: in the middle for regular cutting of various pipe diameters, or with the external blade, enabling sealing sleeves to be cut close to the wall. The tool is suitable for unreinforced plastic pipes with a diameter of 20 to 50mm and a wall thickness of up to 2.4mm.
SMART DRINKING WATER SYSTEMS
An integrated BWT multi-stage filter in the Blanco FONTAS-S II tap purifies the water, reduces limescale and heavy metal content and, thus, enhances the taste. The filter systems provide three options – warm, cold and filtered cold water – in one multi-functional tap. The unit also features a distinctive pull-out spout which allows flexible use around the sink.
