Schlüter warms the floors of a unique housing project


n Essex-based project centring on the provision of a much-needed National Autistic Society (NAS) school has

seen the installation of electric underfloor heating system Schlüter®


DUO into the 60 houses built to off-set its costs. At the centre of the project was the idea

to build the school without using public funds. As a result, a carefully considered gated community of three, four and five-bed luxury houses – Chigwell Grove – was planned to enable its construction.


AREA: Bathrooms and Ensuites ACTION: Protecting and Heating Floors DITRA-HEAT-E-DUO was installed across the bathrooms and ensuites of the houses in the development, beneath 900 x 450mm and 600 x 600mm porcelain tiles. Three different sized kits were used according

to the size of the rooms, minimising any waste product. “We found the DITRA-HEAT-E-DUO

system very easy to install – much easier than mesh-based systems”, says Paul Clough, owner of tiling contractor PJ Ceramics, “In fact as a company we have recently switched completely to membrane-based systems – they’re far more versatile as you can route the cable around features rather than heating entire floors at additional expense”. The DITRA-HEAT-E-DUO system features a studded uncoupling membrane into which

heating cables are clipped and securely held in place, ensuring an even and consistent heating experience. It also offers reductions in height build-up and installation time in comparison to mesh-based systems, which require an uncoupling membrane to be installed as an additional layer in the flooring assembly. The DITRA-HEAT-DUO membrane

features a 2.5mm fleece layer that reduces heat loss to the substrate, accelerating the warm-up process by up to 70 per cent in comparison to conventional underfloor heating systems. This layer also provides impact sound reduction of up to 13dB (which translates to a reduction of 50 per cent by reckoning of the human ear). Schlüter-Systems are attending the inaugural Hard Surfaces Show from 30th April - 2nd May 2019; find them on Stand J16.

01530 813396 DAF Trucks choose Hadrian for quality and environmental performance

Hadrian Elite steel toilet cubicles have been installed in all the washrooms at the DAF Trucks UK headquarters at Haddenham in Buckinghamshire. It wasn’t just the superb durability and practicality of Hadrian cubicles that DAF found attractive, but also their green credentials. Hadrian's products feature a high recycled content with the powder coated cubicles made from 50 per cent recycled material. For stainless steel that figure rises to 91 per cent. Thirty Hadrian Elite powder coated, floor mounted, steel toilet cubicles and six matching urinal screens were installed across the six washrooms. These serve the DAF headquarters that were officially opened in September 2018. Packed with design features, the Hadrian Elite range includes an ingenious honeycomb core, laminated under pressure to a sheet-steel envelope. This envelope is coated with a dry powder coating which is cured at high temperature to provide a smooth, continuous finish that is attractive, durable and easy to clean and maintain. At DAF Trucks a light grey finish was chosen (RAL 7035). For further information on Hadrian Toilet Cubicles and Lockers, contact Relcross.
