NEWS&PRODUCT PROFILES Rinnai’s Infinity HDC1600i/e - hot water to flow, quick quick flow...37 litres per minute An important feature that demonstrates efficiencies is the fact that Rinnai, manufacturer of the industry’s widest range of continuous flow gas fired water heaters, has ‘A’ rated Eco-labels on all of its units. Eco-labelling of products offers transparency to specifiers and end users a clear and simple guide when sourcing the most energy efficient hot water heating units. Rinnai products also meet and exceed the requirements of the Building Regulations Part L (fuel and power) and with these bespoke system arrangements they can offer G3 and ACOP L8 best practice. Any possibility of Legionella breeding at its trigger point of 40 degrees C is minimised as Rinnai units have no tanks and therefore limit the environment for bacteria production. ErP A-ratings: six months on and market makes definitive choices From Rinnai Six months on from the implementation of the Energy Labelling Directive (ErP) and Rinnai is reporting direct benefits from the legislative transparency for buyers wanting and needing the most energy efficient range of hot water heating units for commercial and domestic applications. To make sure the appliances comply with EU rules for energy labelling Rinnai ensured all its appliances were tested twice – first at the Rinnai plant where units undergo rigorous interrogation by the company’s expert engineers and then again a notified body that bestowed the coveted A- rated label on the products. Sika Everbuild press release - Sika UK appoints new General Manager enquiry number 900 enquiry number 902 Global building product manufacturer, Sika, has appointed Dragan Maksimovic´as General Manager, a role that will see him build on the continued growth of the company across its multiple UK markets. Dragan joined Sika in 2002. Based in Belgrade he was responsible for developing the company’s operation in Serbia where the company today has become market leader in a number of local market sectors with a strong operation and its own production facilities for concrete admixtures and mortars. The new appointment will see him build on the already well established Sika and Everbuild brands in the UK. In 2016, the company is aiming to achieve 6% growth in net sales whilst maintaining profitability levels. Major focuses that will help the company achieve this centre on further development of its network of specifiers, strengthening relationships with key specialist distributors and adding to the Sika contractor networks. The company will also continue to focus efforts on securing major projects via its Major Project Management Team, who have shown great success in 2015, as well as developing inter-company business. In 2013, Sika acquired Everbuild Building Products, the UK’s largest manufacturer of Sealants, Adhesives and Construction Chemicals. This acquisition proved to be a major success for Sika with the Everbuild brand achieving sales in excess of £87 million in over 70 countries. “I strongly believe that teamwork stands behind every result and that people do make the difference,” commented Dragan. “Relationships inside the company and towards the customers are the main drivers for sustainable good results. Sika UK is a strong company and I am looking forward to the challenge of growing the brand in the UK.” Sika UK has grown steadily over the past few years, reaching one of the highest sales and profit results of Sika globally, despite operating in challenging market conditions. Dragan takes over from Ivo Schaedler who has taken on the extended responsibility of Area Manager Europe South, responsible for the UK, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Greece and Mauritius within Sika. enquiry number 904 The most colourful steaming hot water tap on the market From InSinkErator® Contributing to a variety of tasks, from cooking to cleaning, the InSinkErator® 3N1 steaming hot water tap is a must-have appliance for the kitchen, and is now available in six stunning finishes; including Anthracite, Bright Orange, Natural Stone and Pearl White.

Myson FLOORTEC is A-rated enquiry number 901 A Myson FLOORTEC underfloor heating system has been installed throughout a new build property after Hayward Smart Architects designed a home with an A-rated Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). “We have also recently developed a new range of underfloor heating pipe, PEXcellent 5, that will not only give installers added confidence that they are providing the very best product, it will also provide a long lasting system for end users.” Michelle Taylor, Product Manager for Myson, adds, “PEXcellent 5 is manufactured without chemicals and solvents for greener production and end of life cycle disposal and is covered by our 10 year system guarantee – although it has a successful track record of use over more than 25 years.” www.myson.co.uk enquiry number 903 Smith’s Space Saver SS80 goes Dutch and Swedish Smith’s Fan Convectors market-leading Space Saver plinth heater has been given a profile boost in the Dutch and Swedish markets. A new slim-line version of the Smith’s Space Saver was launched last year - the Smith’s Space Saver SS80 - making it the only plinth heater in Europe that fits IKEA-style 80mm plinth heights. The Space Saver SS80 fits much narrower plinths found in kitchen designs popular in Scandinavia and Germany. Like its taller counterparts, installing the Space Saver SS80 frees up wall space for extra work surfaces and more storage or desirable kitchen appliances. It provides an alternative for home owners having to make do with a panel radiator or expensive under-floor heating. enquiry number 905 PHEX: Rinnai showcases continuous flow water heating for domestic & light commercial installations Visitors to the Rinnai Stand will be able to view tankless units for domestic sites - the 11i, the 16i and the K26.
