18 PRODUCT NEWS New heavy duty mains angle grinders Makita introduces six new heavy duty mains angle grinders in 110v and 240v formats each with a powerful 2,000w motor; three machines have 180mm diameter wheels and three have 230mm wheels. These machines have highly durable motors for heavy duty operations and a more rigid motor housing for improved robustness. Each has a flat top surface which keeps the machine stable when the wheel is being changed. The grinders have an overall lighter weight design; a new style of side-grip that provides better machine control and operator comfort, and a newly designed spindle lock which makes it easier to lock the wheel for changing. The three new 180mm grinders, the Makita GA7060, GA7060R and the GA7061RX02, will accommodate wheels up to 6.5mm thick and run up to 8,500rpm. The GA7060R features the Makita Soft Start torque control electronics and Anti Restart protection. The GA7061RX02 also includes the SJS2 Super Joint drive system that greatly reduces vibration to just 7.0m/s² when grinding and as little as 2.5m/s² when cutting. This powerful 180mm range weighs from 5.3kg to 5.5kg for the GA7061 model. REHAU expands range of pipe sizes REHAU is expanding the range of pipe sizes it manufactures in the hugely popular RAUVITHERM polymer district heating system with the launch of both 140 and 160mm diameter options. This brings RAUVITHERM into line with REHAU’s other pre-insulated pipework range branded RAUTHERMEX, and gives its customers a solution for virtually every district heating application. The new pipe sizes, available in 12m lengths, have been introduced in response to demand from customers for RAUVITHERM pipework which is suitable for higher volume installations. The 160mm diameter pipe, for example, can be used for over 3MW of heat through a single pipe at 80/50°C flow and return temperatures. A gas-fired range of space heaters Rinnai has launched the Energysaver 559FT and is offering a new streamlined look for the Energysaver 309FT. Sporting a modern, sleek casing, the heaters simply blend into the background in line with modern demands for modern interior aesthetics, while offering exceptionally high efficiencies in operation and reduced running costs. Changes have been made to the operation board, which is now an easy to use touch control pad sited conveniently and discreetly on top of the appliance. The unit is also supplied with a child lock and the timer function and eco mode combined with the new unit’s ability to heat spaces fast. The 559FT has an input of 6.4kW and output of 5.2kW. The streamlined unit measures 554mm x 750mm x 250mm. The Rinnai Energysaver 309FT, like the 559FT, sports a similar sleek casing and turns in net efficiencies of 88%. It has an input of 3.4kW and output of 2.92kW. The streamlined unit measures 695mm x 465mm x 257mm. Natural Gas usage has been pegged at 0.31m3 while LPG consumption is 0.26kg/hr. SALUS unveils ‘Smart Home’ system SALUS has unveiled a ‘Smart Home’ range of connected products that will enable homeowners to run their home simply from their phone. At the centre of the SALUS ‘Smart Home’ system is the Universal Gateway UG600 and Smartphone App that are required to control and monitor the system. Once up and running, users can quickly and easily connect a variety of devices that feature in the range such as smart plugs, door and window sensors, and an electric monitor that provides data on any particular product. A new iT530 thermostat, smoke alarm, carbon dioxide alarm, camera, smart switch and smart button are also set to join the range.
