As much an artistic focal point as it is a heat source, the Crossroads is built up of radiation pipes that have been welded together in a hypnotising ‘hedge maze’ pattern. Standing tall at 2m, it is ideal for large interiors such as halls and reception rooms. However, sitting only 5cm off the wall, it remains unobtrusive. What’s more, the Crossroads is easy to install and can be connected to any wet heating system. The Crossroads is part of Jaga’s Eyecatcher range, which also includes the Heatwave, Tetra, Vertiga and the Iguana collection. Jaga works with artists to drive innovation in radiator design. www.jaga.co.uk enquiry number 925 Hearing is Believing with Vent-Axia’s Silent Fan With households living increasingly busy lives it is more important than ever before to be able to relax in comfort and to have a good night’s sleep. As a result, many installers are noticing an increased demand for quiet extractor fans, such as Vent-Axia’s Silent Fan. Holding the Noise Abatement Society’s Quiet Mark 2013, the Silent Fan operates at just 16dB(A) and is the quietest ever intermittent bathroom and toilet fan. In fact, the Silent Fan is a significant 75% quieter than typical intermittent bathroom fans. “Obtrusive extractor fans can be irritating, however, switching off a noisy extract fan is not the answer since this can result in mould growth and poor indoor air quality. Instead our Silent Fan puts an end to the issue of noisy bathroom and toilet extract fans once and for all,” said Jenny Smith, Marketing Services Manager at Vent-Axia.

For more information and to see the excellent tools available from HOLDON please visit www.holdontools.com Bahco has re-designed its ergonomic side cutting pliers to deliver improved cutting performance with substantially less force. The brand’s 21HDG heavyduty ERGO™ side cutters have been designed to outlive more than 50,000 cuts of hard wire, such as piano wire. The pliers have a heavy duty cutting edge which provides a sturdy cut all over the blade and will cut piano wire up to a thickness of 3.0mm. The reinforced metal frame has been designed to withstand extreme conditions and hold up extra hard wires. Bahco studies of cutting force confirmed that the first penetration of the blade into the wire demands maximum force, so a comfortable hand position is crucial. The pliers are ergonomically designed to reduce the risk of muscle strain or damage to even the toughest hands. In addition, Bacho’s side cutters provide the optimum grip span when the pliers are opened, unlike other pliers which have optimum grip when they are closed and no force is needed. This enables Bahco pliers to be slimmer in shape, enhancing cutting force and performance. Available in four sizes from 140mm to 200mm, these pliers are forged from high performance alloy steel, with edges induction hardened at 64 HRC. enquiry number 929 Bahco re-designs side cutting pliers • Sturdy cutting edges with heavy duty cutting capacity close to the joint • Sharp tips to cut soft materials like copper and plastic insulated wire • Excellent running and precise alignment of the cutting edges • Made from high performance alloy steel treated for optimum corrosion resistance • The grip shape allows optimal use of the tool in many positions • Designed to maximize leverage and cutting capacity • Slim head design gives greater accessibility • The on-off return spring offers ease of cutting as the on position creates an automatic opening of the jaws and handles when the user grip is loosened enquiry number 927 waterproof military styled safety boot.
