Appointments & News; Building Products Vetrotech Saint-Gobain Environmental Product Declaration helps specifiers


As part of its ongoing drive to become a key partner in sustainable construction schemes, Vetrotech Saint-Gobain has issued an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for its Contraflam 30 range. Verified by an independent third-party, the EPD is based on analysis of the product’s lifecycle and details its environmental footprint, from raw material extraction through to production and processing. The EPD acts as an essential aid for specifiers and architects involved in projects with the aim of obtaining green building certification such as LEED, BREEAM, HQE or DGNB. Valid until 2023, the EPD itself can be viewed on the international EPD system’s website, environdec.com. Rob Wood, Vetrotech UK general manager, outlined the reasons for the EPD: “This EPD represents several things for us and our customers. Although Vetrotech is recognised as the ‘go to’ partner for high-security and fire-resistance, we wanted to leave specifiers in no doubt over the unrivalled sustainability credentials of our systems. Reducing the environmental impact of construction is a huge priority for our industry – and rightly so.”

Viessmann introduces new air-source heat pumps


Viessmann has introduced the Vitocal 200-A and Vitocal 222-A, with innovative noise-reduction technology. Both operate so quietly that they are suitable for densely built-up areas such as terraced housing estates, and both have high energy efficiency with low operating costs. Both heat pumps feature Viessmann’s new Advanced Acoustic Design. This combines a sound-optimised fan designed to harmonise the acoustic frequency range with intelligent speed control to reduce airborne noise at full- and partial-load operation. This effectively stifles the lower frequency sound of conventional heat pumps which can be perceived as disturbing. The result is that the pumps are barely audible: noise pressure in night mode at a distance of three is a mere 35 dB(A). Installation of the Vitocal 200-A and 222-A is easy. No minimum distance is required between the indoor and outdoor units, no refrigeration leak test is required because the cooling circuit is hermetically sealed, and no F-gas certificate is needed because the connect- ing pipes to the outdoor unit are filled with water. These new heat pumps are also simple to operate, via the Vitotronic 200 control unit with its easy-to-read plain text and graphic display. Controls can be altered anywhere via the Vitoconnect web interface and free ViCare smartphone app.
