BUILDING FABRIC & EXTERIORS Red Dot recognises Ultra Quiet heat pump

Mitsubishi Electric’s Ultra Quiet Ecodan PUHZ-AA air source heat pump range has been presented the Red Dot Award for Product Design. The Ecodan units are designed to provide homes with reliable, trouble free renewable heating and hot water. The design of the new Ultra Quiet unit is highly compact, and the colour combination of white and anthracite exudes a simple yet elegant appeal, with the dark colour of the fan section underlining its unobtrusive design. The Red Dot Award is

judged by an international jury of experts, who said that, “the design of this air-to-water outdoor unit has been thought out to the last detail. Its unobtrusive appearance easily blends into different types of buildings.”

The Facebook page offers a selection of videos and images that provide information on the Ultra Quiet Ecodan, detailing its uses, specifications and unique characteristics that

The inherent strength and slim sightlines characteristic of W20 steel sections have enabled a member of the Steel Window Association to create a large screen with two sets of double doors: elegantly linking an expanded kitchen dining area with the rear garden. Steel Window Service & Supplies carried out the design, manufacture and installation of the multilight screen, which measures 4,484mm x 3,427mm high. The frames are hot dip galvanised prior to being finished in a

polyester powder paint system. W20 and W40 steel windows and doors meet the requirements of the Building Regulations in new-build as well as refurbishment situations. A sliding door kit you can install yourself
