Unfortunately, due to a decrease in demand, rising costs and short shelf life we are withdrawing from our range the intumescent sealant cartridges shown on page 72 of our latest no. 21 catalogue.
There is no set date for this as it will be as and when we run out of stock of each one, so please contact us if you have any immediate requirement as we do still have some stock.
We do hope this does not cause any inconvenience, and we haven’t made this decision lightly, but have just found ourselves in a position where this is the only commercially viable option.
Due to the recent increase in demand we have all seen for black architectural ironmongery, we’re excited to announce the launch of two new finishes to our range of Slimport circular vision frames; ZERO black and LITE black.
ZEROblack is a flat, matt style, finish giving a pure stunning black at all angles. LITEblack is a textured finish which enables light to catch the texture giving a multitude of black tones.
Why just have black lever handles when you can now compliment these with a contemporary black vision frame…
After the successful launch of the Anemostat LoPro-STC acoustic vision frame set, we decided to further increase its depth of testing by undertaking some acoustic tests with the bestselling glasses we supply here in the UK.
The LoPro has now been sound tested with our most popular glasses, in both single pane form and incorporated into double glazed units. The range of glasses tested included non-fire rated options such as 6mm toughened and 6.4mm laminated, and also fire rated options such as Pyrocet, Firelite and Pyroshield 2. We even tested 7.5mm thick Anti-Bandit laminated glass.
Now we have a UK tested solution where an acoustic rated vision frame is required, with the glass you use. Full details of the testing carried out can be found here.
We are excited to announce that our Finprotect Plus range of finger protection devices are now tested to the new British Standard BS 8613:2017 “Finger Protection Devices for Pedestrian Doors”.
Furthermore, the range was tested to the more onerous Class 2 of the standard, which tests the ability of the device in preventing fingers entering the gap between the door and frame when force is used. Class 1 devices would not undergo this part of the testing.
BS 8613 was written to provide guidance on the best finger protection devices for doors. With a variety of products already on the market, it was felt that there was no guidance as to what works well, what fails easily, what is durable and what is truly safe in use.
With this new testing you can now specify and use Finprotect Plus with confidence.
Full details of the Finprotect Plus range can be found on our website at www.zeroplus.co.uk/finprotect and a copy of the test report is available upon request.
