Radwraps launch new glitter range

Radwraps launch new glitter range

Radwraps have launched its new glitter range of Radwraps radiator covers.

 

Radwraps covers are magnetic and are proven to be 118% more efficient at reducing heat consumption than their wooden counterparts. Depending on the customer's wishes, they can be used for that sole reason, or they can provide a dual purpose by livening up a room, whether it be blending in with the wallpaper or displaying a striking design, such as a colourful pattern or a photograph.

 

Put your heart into a plumbing career

Put your heart into a plumbing career

Plumbing is one of the world’s oldest professions dating back to Roman times.
It was even considered a great choice of career by Albert Einstein, who declared in November 1954: “If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make my living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher. I would rather choose to be a plumber or a peddler in the hope to find that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances.”

 

With more than 230,000 jobs expected to be created in construction by 2020, a growth of 2.5% each year – 3.5% in Greater London – there has never been a better time to get into the industry.

Powerflushing made simple

Powerflushing made simple

The new Fernox TF1 Omega Filter Flushing Adapter provides a simple and convenient way to attach any powerflushing machine with a standard 3/4” BSP connection to a central heating system via a Fernox TF1 Omega Filter. The adapter replaces the filter body and allows a full flow rate powerflush to be achieved quickly and efficiently.

 

The Fernox TF1 Omega Filter Flushing Adapter is rated up to 85°C. For systems with a combination boiler, powerflushing via the filter connection has the added benefit of allowing the primary side of the secondary heat exchanger to be cleaned. This can be achieved by turning the hot water tap on to engage the boiler diverter valve.

Inclusive Design and the Ageing Population

Showers

Martin Walker, CEO of Methven UK, discusses the role played by technology and design in the creation of usable bathrooms for the ageing population and what this means for installers.

Thanks to improvements in healthcare, advancements in technology and a higher standard of living, the population of the UK is now living longer than ever before. Whilst clearly a cause for celebration, this also presents new issues which, as an industry, bathroom manufacturers must address. More than 11 million people are now aged over 65 and a third of us are aged 55 and over, whilst the number of living centenarians has increased by 73% in the last decade(i). With this shift in demographic comes the necessity to ensure that society is prepared to meet the needs of the elderly.
