BUILDING FABRIC & EXTERIORS Framework Directive for energy-related products

In October 2009, the European Commission published a framework Directive for energy-related products, thereby extending the scope of application to products that use, generate, transfer and measure energy. The energy-related products directive has already been implemented for a number of products and the new regulations will be applying to warm air heaters from January 2018. To enable the heaters to be placed on the market they must be fully compliant with the regulation. Appliances in the supply chain after the implementation date, can still be sold but they must be covered by an order, written or verbal. Orders would need placing for the non-condensing ranges of warm air heaters, the Hi-Spec and Economaire, by the end of December 2017 to comply with the new regulation. Providing these orders are in place, Johnson & Starley are able to sell these two models of heaters up until 26th

September 2018. Naturally, Housing Associations and Social Housing

who currently own, or are looking to upgrade their stock will wonder what the availability of spare parts will be. There is need to worry. Johnson and Starley has always been committed to keeping spare parts for heaters available for as long as possible and will not be making exceptions for these or any of our model ranges. Parts will be available for a minimum of 10 years after production of these two models of heaters has ceased.

Freefoam Building Products are delighted to announce another collaboration with the Ideal Home Show and Off Site Factory Homes. Working with the designers of this year’s show, Freefoam X-Wood Urban cladding has been used to a stunning effect on the prestigious show home – the focal point of the whole show. Always keen to push the boundaries of design, the show promoters have created a house that features an unusual combination of old and new. The front features a traditional ‘Victorian’ red brick faced facade with sash windows and the rear aspect showcases a contemporary modern extension including an innovative elevated cantilever section. X-Wood Urban Cladding in soft white has been used to form the outer envelope of the extension contrasting with the grey doors and windows. X-Wood Urban will be part of Freefoam’s X-Wood PVC cladding range when released later in the year. X-Wood™ is a premium grade 16mm thick cladding range developed as a highly durable board from a composite of three different layers, each with its own high-performance properties. A heavy duty plastic foam core, a durable solid plastic skin and a choice of two superior outer coatings – woodgrain Renolit colour film or subtle embossed wood effect PVC, both available in a variety of colours to suit all designs. For more information please call or visit the Freefoam website.
