AEG's F67622Vi0P DISHWASHER WITH WATERSAVER TECHNOLOGY

AEG's F67622Vi0P DISHWASHER WITH WATERSAVER TECHNOLOGY


WaterSave Technology ensures the cleanest water from the final rinse is stored and made available for the next wash, therefore the dishwasher only needs half the water to deliver spotlessly clean dishes, explains appliance manufacturer AEG. The appliance is really quiet so it projects a tiny red or green beam onto the floor to tell you when it is running and when it has finished. 

 

New SoftGrips® & SoftSpikes® give glasses complete stability during the cleaning process and when adjusting the baskets. The ProClean™ XXL tub with FlexiSpray including five spray levels, satellite spray arm and a third ceiling arm provides impeccable cleaning whatever the load. The new ProClean™ FlexiLift top basket offers additional flexibility with foldable plate racks in the bottom basket.

 

Seven different programmes, including the Autosense 45° to 70° option, ensures the dishwasher is ideal for washing anything from glasses to roasting dishes


SAINT-GOBAIN WEBER ELIMINATES THE LEAKS IN WELSH GRANARY

SAINT-GOBAIN WEBER ELIMINATES THE LEAKS IN WELSH GRANARY


A combination of remedial products and renders by Saint-Gobain Weber has been skilfully used in a private renovation project in Newport, South Wales. Built in 1820, a brick and stone faced granary at Rogerstone had an attractive olde worlde appearance and had been converted to domestic residency many years ago. The property changed hands 18 months ago and a survey of the premises confirmed extensive levels of damp. 

The new owner’s building advisor invited Saint-Gobain Weber to examine the property and recommend a solution as, by this time, internal plaster was failing and the level of damp was destroying furnishings. Weber identified the technical materials required and recommended specialist applicator M P Plastering of Highbridge in Somerset. who confirmed that the stonework would have to be covered to achieve a sealed surface. The first operation was to clean the building with weber CL150, a water based anti-fungal wash containing carefully selected biocides that are effective against a broad range of bacterial, fungal, algal, yeast and mould species. This process was followed by the application of weberend aid which acts as a preparatory key coat for render. Once the preparation was complete weberend OCR base coat render was applied to cover the original stone and brick fascia.

IMPACT WARRANTY LAUNCHED BY FERMACELL

IMPACT WARRANTY LAUNCHED BY FERMACELL


Specialist partitioning manufacturer fermacell has launched a peerless impact warranty for its gypsum fibreboard panels. The warranty is evidence of the company's faith in its boards, even in particularly onerous education environments where they outperform even the severe-duty rating of BS 5234 Part 2 as mandated in the Department of Education's SSLD (Standard Specifications, Layouts and Dimensions) document. This faith originates in fermacell's composition which is denser than plasterboard, giving the fibreboard, which is already fire and water resistant and acoustically efficient, its load-bearing strength and impact resistance.

The warranty extends to all partitions and linings specified in the fermacell brochure "Dry-lining solutions for education" and is valid for any type of building anywhere in the UK or Ireland subject to just a few conditions. Given these are met, fermacell warrants the partitions will not be damaged during normal use in the building and should impact occur then the company will either supply the materials to effect a repair to the impact-damaged boards together with associated instructions, or supply replacement boards. Fermacell UK general manager Gary Carter said: "This warranty is unparalleled. Dry-lining partitions are valued for their flexibility and speed of install and yet traditional systems are not as robust as blockwork. However, with fermacell you can have all the advantages of dry-lining without having to compromise on strength.
