MORE SUCCESS FOR H+H THIN-JOINT SYSTEM

MORE SUCCESS FOR H+H THIN-JOINT SYSTEM


H+H’s Rå Build method has been used by design and build contractor Canning Ericsson to speed construction of a three-storey apartment block on a confined site in Brighton. Canning Ericsson was already familiar with the advantages of H+H’s Rå Build method of large format aircrete blocks, the Thin-Joint System and quick-drying Celfix Mortar from previous schemes. “We decided to use H+H’s Thin-Joint System again because it is quick and easy to use, it goes up fast and gains structural strength quickly; it’s a really great system,” says Michael Alderton, director of Canning Ericsson. Aircrete’s structural strength was important because the weight of the project’s cast in situ reinforced concrete first and second floor slabs is carried by the High Strength Thin-Joint Blocks that form the inner leaf of the building’s external cavity wall. “The biggest benefit of using H+H’s Thin-Joint System is the ability to use large format 630mm x 250mm x 100mm wide Jumbo Bloks, which enables the walls to be constructed a lot quicker” says Mr Alderton.

NEW AEG OVENS ADD STEAM FOR BETTER BAKING RESULTS

NEW AEG OVENS ADD STEAM FOR BETTER BAKING RESULTS


Professionals have been using steam to achieve outstanding results - and now even more consumers can too, according to kitchen manufacturer AEG. It is about to make steam an integral part of everyday cooking and baking with the launch of its range of single ovens. SteamBake technology will be added as a standard function across the entire range of mid-level multifunction models. The technology behind SteamBake lies in a "unique water reservoir and heating coli" AEG explains. Users need to set the oven to "True Fan Cooking" then activate the SteamBake function by pressing a button on the control panel. This creates a humid atmosphere during the first 10-15 minutes of baking, AEG explains. After the steam dissipates, dry hot air results in even browning, a smooth, crisp golden crust, and a dough that is "wonderfully soft and fluffy on the inside".

AEG is so confident in its new multifunction ovens with SteamBake technology that it recently submitted the entire range for the approval of the Good Housekeeping Institute.

CELLECTA'S TETRIS BLOCK AND BEAM SYSTEM CHOSEN AHEAD OF TRADITIONAL METHODS


By using the TETRiS® insulation blocks at this self-build in Liphook, Hampshire, the housebuilder was able to benefit from considerable time saving compared to traditional methods. TETRiS® is supplied direct to the site in plot/ floor specific quantities reducing the number of deliveries onsite. very light, eco-friendly and easy to handle, and can be cut with a handsaw.

 

Another benefit of the system is its strength, unlike many other B&B insulated floors, once installed you can walk on it. TETRiS® will withstand foot traffic during the build until the structural concrete topping. Once complete the home owner will benefit from an increase in the structures thermal insulation efficiency as TETRiS® is designed to solve high U-value requirements at ground floor level.
