WATER SOFTENERS FROM TAPWORKS

Problems in hard water areas – the build-up of limescale in appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers, not to mention inside heating systems is still a major issue in 60% of the UK. If you suffer from hard water problems, you know it! Just a 1.6mm build-up of scale on the inside of heating system surfaces can cause a 12% loss in heating efficiency. The build-up can be in pipes, in radiators and on heat exchanger surfaces in boilers. Scale will also form around the heating coil and eventually fill a hot water cylinder.
The most welcome benefit for householders in the current economic climate, is that having softened water in the home can reduce heating bills significantly – 15% reductions in energy bills are commonplace, often more - and importantly, having a water softener installed will reduce maintenance costs on all your appliances. Fit a water softener from the Tapworks range and protect your customers homes.

An elegant glass fireplace to rival the starry sky

The stylish Tower indoor glass fireplace in the ebios-fire designer range by SPARTHERM, one of Germany and Europe’s leading manufacturers of modern fireplaces, provides an all-round view of the leaping flames. At the same time, the unit produces fantastic light effects that are reflected all around, magically creating a starry sky in the living room.
This elegant glass and stainless steel pillar of fire is operated with bioethanol. Unlike a conventional fireplace which is permanently installed, a bioethanol fireplace is mobile. Standing approximately 150 cm tall and about 45 cm in diameter, the unit is available in Black, Terra and White.
It also scores top for safety, because all SPARTHERM units are equipped with a patented bioethanol burner and a non-combustible ceramic mat. The combustion technology produces warm, yellow flames and there is an integral burn-back preventer. Furthermore, the two tanks are housed inside the body, well below the stainless steel burner. A small electric pump delivers the bioethanol to the burner and the flame height can be controlled from the convenience of the sofa via a remote control.

Lindapter provided connection solutions for Arup’s Circular Economy Building

The construction industry currently produces three times more waste than all UK households combined, including 60 tonnes of materials that go straight to the tip due to incorrect ordering, damage or not fitting correctly.
Lindapter and many other collaborators pulled together, generously giving their time, products and services to support Arup’s project, which tested the maturity of circular economy thinking in order to prove that circularity is achievable.
During the project, Arup asked Lindapter to design and supply a connection system to secure the circular building’s roof panels, wall panels and glazing supports to the structural frame. Lindapter’s technical team quickly designed bespoke connection solutions using the CE Marked Type B clamp, which allowed contractors to rapidly install the panels by easily sliding and aligning the eco-boards into position before tightening with a standard torque wrench.
As only hand tools are required to install Lindapter products, noise, waste, and tool/welding consumables are avoided.
