One handle multiple openings. The fanlight may never be the same.

the traditional fanlight systems found in buildings such as schools. Gone are the days when you would need


to go and find a rod to open a fanlight window, use a complex and unsightly drive rod system or stretch and strain to reach the opening handle. This system allows all users to achieve ventilation via a top level tilting sash. Full operation of the remaining system is controlled by keyed locking points meaning security and full opening is still limited by the key holder but the key holder is not required to achieve ventilation. The one handle on the lower window

allows the top sash to be tilted using MACO’s Tilt and Turn hardware, however in contrast to conventional fanlights the fanlight sash can still also be fully opened. Due to this innovative design not only does it maximise air exchange for ventilation when tilted by

ne handle, multiple openings. This is the latest innovative window system designed by MACO to revolutionise

allowing the warm air under the ceiling to escape. The Multi Sky system also allows the cleaning of the outside glass to be made easier and safer when the windows are fully open. With cleaning in mind the system also has no protruding visible surface mounted parts making the maintenance of this system easy durable. Of course being MACO this system is not

only creative in design and implementation, security is still paramount thanks to the systems multipoint locking system with MACO i.S. security cams and striker plates. The multipoint locking system closes and seals all points on MACO MULTI SKY. This enables better security as well as weather performance, air permeability and acoustic resistance unlike traditional single point fanlight locking systems. The advantages to this system continue

beyond its design and security features too, the system can be applied to timber as well as PVC profiles. No widening of the frame is

needed either as no space is required for the surface mounted operating elements making fabrication simpler too, as well as this the system is made of familiar components allowing fabricators and the end user to have an easy understanding of system operation.

GREEN grass reinforcement

modules installed at Banovallum School T

he Hauraton RECYFIX® GREEN

STANDARD surface reinforcement grid system was used extensively in

the grassed pathways, where a high footfall was expected, and the grassed areas surrounding Banovallum School, Horncastle .The system helped to prevent erosion and improve surface drainage. Once installed,

the RECYFIX® GREEN modules were

discreet, yet provided a permanent surface reinforcement to the grassed areas with a loading capacity of 200 tonne/m². Manufactured from 100 per cent recycled

polypropylene (PP), two sizes of module were installed; size 1 – 387 x 344 x 38mm at 0.7kg and size 2 – 387 x 555 x 38mm at 1.2kg. The modules were simply held in position with 250mm ABS pegs. The pathways and area to be grassed were excavated, covered with a granular sub-base, a layer of sharp sand applied and then rolled. The RECYFIX®

GREEN modules were then

secured on top of the rolled surface and their apertures filled with top soil which was compacted then grass seeded. The grass was left to grow over several weeks before access was allowed. Colin Taff, Hauraton‘s Project Engineer comments “The RECYFIX®

GREEN modules

can also be specified for grassed areas with occasional vehicular usage such as car

parking spaces also bridleways, roof terraces, urban green spaces, around trees and lawns. They can also be used in sports grounds, golf course pathways, camping places, holiday parks and reinforcements for rail and road embankments and river banks.”
