PRODUCTNEWS JOYOU enjoys ISH show JOYOU – the new online brand from the GROHE Group – had a successful show at ISH, the bathroom design event of the year. Highlights on display in the Forum Hall included six full bathroom suites, their accessories, 12 tap and shower collections, a range of water-saving eco taps and a new collection of child-friendly, cool-touch thermostats. David Doust, general manager, said: “The response to the JOYOU at the ISH fair was overwhelming. “One of the star attractions was the new range of Marseille CoolTouch thermostatic showers. Even when using piping hot water, the exterior remains cold so you can be sure children will not scald their hands. “Another show stopper was our new JOYOU Aqualogic three-in-one Kettle Tap which has an updated tap design and an advanced new thermostatic boiler technology.” Cocos Plus added by MHS Radiators MHS Radiators has introduced the Cocos Plus from Vasco to its range of designer towel rails. The radiator utilises rows of curved double bars and is available in heights of 1,542mm x 600mm and 1,842mm x 600mm – offering outputs of up to 1.7kW and 2kW respectively. The compact Cocos Plus, suitable for either kitchens or bathrooms, is made from smooth horizontal tubes, forming hoops that are finished with a vertical cover plate, which runs down one side of the radiator. This cover also conceals the radiator’s wall mount. The contrast between the horizontal lines and the vertical strip results in a contemporary design, allowing for the emitter to act as both a radiator and a towel warmer at the same time. Hollycroft fast tracks to MCS Hollycroft Software has launched Biomass Simplified to complement its existing range of Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), PAS 2030 QMS and Easy Fill form filling software packages.

HEATING & PLUMBING MONTHLY APRIL 2015 19 Hammer home with Hultafors Hultafors’ bricklayer's hammer has been unveiled, with a narrow straight chisel, nail puller and ergonomic handle with an end stop. It has a continuous steel body forged into a single piece, combined with a tempered striking surface and chisel. There’s also a urethane plug in the head that reduces vibration when striking objects. The TB 600 Bricklayer's Hammer is well balanced, making it easier to break masonry. It also has Hultafors' Santoprene handle, delivering the perfect grip. All in all, it’s a tool you should consider getting to grips with. enquiry number 109 Hitachi Power Tools’ 10.8V kit Hitachi Power Tools has launched the KC10DFL2 two-piece 10.8V cordless tool kit. The kit includes the DS10DFL2 drill/driver and WH10DFL2 impact driver, both of which are low in weight and feature a slim, soft grip handle. Both power tools also feature an automatic trigger-operated LED light. To power the tools, Hitachi has provided two 1.5Ah Lithium-ion batteries. A UC10SL2 30 minute charger is included in the kit and everything comes in a carrying case. Weighing in at just 1kg, the DS10DFL2 drill/driver provides a maximum torque of 36Nm (hard), with a drilling capacity in wood of 29mm and 10mm in metal. Meanwhile, the WH10DFL2 impact driver provides 108Nm (hard) maximum torque, with a bolt capacity between M6 and M12. Just like the drill/driver, the impact driver weighs in at just 1kg. Save with HRT4 series The Horstmann HRT4 series has five models available – wireless, mains, battery, tamper proof and a frost ‘stat version – all featuring TPI technology and clear usage functions, including digital read outs and back lit displays on some models. The tamper proof (HTT4) and frost ‘stat versions (HFT4) are designed for specific applications, but still contain HRT4 features. The HRT4 has a temperature control accuracy of +/- 0.5ºC and different TPI settings – for gas, oil and electric systems – and help save energy as the control algorithm enables the boiler to operate in condensing mode for longer periods. The Horstmann range of HRT4 TPI room thermostats is suited for system upgrades or first time installations. The wireless HRT4- ZW has the advantage of being fitted without decor damage. enquiry number 110 enquiry number 111 enquiry number 112 enquiry number 113 enquiry number 114
