21 N EW P R O D U C T S & U P D AT E S Specialists in plumbing opt for Multikwik Multikwik’s sanitary frames and flush plates have been installed in Woodford Heating’s new office washrooms in Essex to provide employees and visitors with an attractive bathroom space that will last at least 25 years. The ground floor toilets of Woodford Heating and Energy’s offices had six WCs, two urinals, and four hand basin frames installed, in 1,185mm, perfect for a commercial project such as this. Multikwik’s sanitary frames support loads in excess of 400kg and come with a 25-year product guarantee. On the WC frames, a dual flush stainless flushplate was specified because the dual flush capability offers a choice of 6/3 and 4/2 litre flushes. Once all of the frames were installed, they were then concealed to mask the unsightly pipework for a clean finish, which took up no more space than a traditional back to the wall installation. www.multikwik.com/products/sanitary-range/ The latest version of Makita’s compact but powerful 7.2v pencil drill driver and impact driver have a host of enhanced features – more rpm, more tightening torque and enhanced controls. Weighing just over half a kilo and can be used in either pistol grip mode or as ‘in-line long handle’ powered screwdrivers. enquiry number 108 The Makita TD022DSE 7.2v pencil impact driver will now run up to 2,450rpm, deliver up to 3,000 impacts per minute and generate 25Nm of tightening torque, which is sufficient to drive home a M8 standard bolt or machine screw. A new rotary switch on the motor body selects forward variable speed and reverse rotation. The Makita DF012DSE pencil drill driver has two speed ranges, up to 650rpm with a maximum 3.6Nm of tightening torque on high speed and on low speed up to 200rpm, that can deliver 5.6Nm of torque. www.makitauk.com Tectite Pro passes tough testing process REHAU launches universal pipework system READY TO GO Tel: 01268 208800 www.hpmmag.com September 2017 enquiry number 109 Pencil drivers from Makita enhanced Tectite Pro, the highly versatile push-fit fitting by Pegler Yorkshire, has been tested beyond its reported capabilities and passed with flying colours. The metal push-fit fitting has been put to the test in both a conventional and non-conventional way. Initially, independent testing facility, the Advanced Structural Testing Centre, was sought due to its UKAS Accredited tensile testing capacity, which allowed tests up to 1,000 Kilonewtons. Following successful results, the team at Pegler Yorkshire decided to put the fitting to the test in its own way. The non-conventional test carried out by Pegler Yorkshire saw the team set up a lifting system using a Tectite Pro 54mm fitting. The joint took the strain of lifting a 1,440kg Mercedes car off the ground for five minutes. Tectite features include grip first grab rings, which prevent any risk of full bore blow offs, pre-lubricated seals for reduced insertion force, and copper, DZR brass or stainless bodies. www.pegleryorkshire.co.uk REHAU has launched the RAUTITAN, comprising Flex and Stabil polymer pipes, a new universal 10 bar pipework solution designed specifically for drinking water and heating systems. The flexible PE-Xa RAUTITAN pipework system delivers on durability, corrosion resistance, and ease of installation. It is available in both coils and straights, and also as a pre-insulated pipe system, offering installers a solution for virtually every application. The Flex range, a five layer polymer pipe, is available from 16-63mm and the multilayer Stabil pipe range is available from 16-40mm. RAUTITAN is fully certified as hygienic for drinking water. Its smooth surface prevents deposits from forming in the pipe, while cavity-free impermeable joints eliminate the risk of microbial contamination. It also has WRAS approval for both PE-Xa and multilayer PE-Xa versions. The range offers a selection of pipe sizes, fittings and accessories, including compact stainless steel heating pipe manifolds. www.rehau.uk/rautitan www.rads2rails.co.uk STOCKED enquiry number 111 enquiry number 110 enquiry number 315
