Dimmable Downlight – Vela Advance


REVIEW OF THE YEAR SPONSORED BY IE5 motors on with Grundfos Pumps

uall Grundfos MGE motors – from 0.75 kW to 11 kW – have attained IE5 status uby combining IE5 motors and their integrated frequency convertor with Grundfos experience and dedicated control software, allows them to adapt to the system and thus reduce energy consumption. If you would like to find out more about the difference that IE5 motors can make to your application or project, visit Mikrofill at Aureus School

ureus School is a STEM specialist mixed school that

creates choice for the wider community in southern Oxfordshire. The schools mission is simple: we will strive to educate the whole student so that each individual in our community may ‘Grow, Learn and Flourish’. In 2016, established

the market. We are confident this new range will become one of the highest specified products in LED fire rated lighting. These shallow 9W, IP65 LED fire rated fittings, with a true 92lm/w output, will offer a performance that meets the high demands of the UK market and the increasing demands of specifiers and contractors. Easy to install with fixed, tilt and anti glare options available in 3000K & 4000K all offering interchangeable bezel finishes of black, satin chrome, polished chrome and gold – these fittings are ideal for both domestic and commercial applications.

services contractor J & B Hopkins, were appointed as the mechanical & electrical contractor for the schools new build works. Domestic hot water requirements were covered by the installation of 2No Mikrofill ‘Extreme’ 500 litre loading cylinders. The Extreme is a hot water generator that combines the advantages of both an instantaneous hot water heater and a storage system, creating perfect harmony between a condensing boiler and a hot water cylinder. Each stainless steel

unvented loading cylinder can produce in excess of 2500 litres per hour and 845 litres in a 10 minute peak period at 60°C. In addition, a Mikrofill 1000/2 pressurisation package was installed to unvent the indirect LPHW circuits.

new Rockvilla centre in Glasgow, Scotland. Specified by design consultant and engineering company Atelier Ten, the technically advanced system was an ideal solution, allowing the contractor team to quickly, easily and reliably install the thick walled steel tube heating system. The £6.5 million development


of the Rockvilla centre will be the headquarters of the National Theatre Scotland (NTS), allowing the theatre group for the first time to have its rehearsal and production activities under one roof. The Rockvilla centre required

the installation of a new heating system within the 3,700 square metre space. Having seen the Viega Megapress system used on another project, the team from Atelier Ten were impressed by its quality and reliability and as such selected the system for use at the development of the Rockvilla centre. Installed by Moffat Mechanical in just five months, the system

iega has supplied its Megapress press connection system for the

saves up to 60% of assembly time compared to traditional tube connection methods such as welding or threading. The Megapress system also provides a clean connection due to its pressing function, meaning there is no excess cutting oil, metal swarf, hemp residue or jointing compound that would be used with traditional methods. Therefore valuable time was saved as the system did not require flushing to remove any residual installation debris. The installation at the

Rockvilla centre required 500 connections of the thickwalled steel fittings ranging from 15mm to 54mm, which was easy to achieve from Viega’s comprehensive selection of fittings ranging from ½” to 2”. William Giplin, Mechanical

Project Engineer at Moffat Mechanical commented on the installation: “Having worked with the system before, we knew just how easy the Megapress would be to use. Using a single press gun, the connections can be achieved in the most confined spaces – completing a full seal in

International Air Conditioning’s Headquarters, Leeds, due to its wide operating temperature envelope which suited the capabilities of their R&D centre. It was also selected for its exceptional fire performance. BAM Construction used BIM at the design stage along with making the decision to have the industrial development as a turnkey project to help save time and resources. Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation was specified and is available as a BIM object from the BIMStore and from www.kingspanindustrial Tony Cole, Managing Director


from Airedale International, commented: “Due to the function of the

building, it was imperative that the pipe insulation used supports extreme temperature ranges. The

Airedale goes home with the help of quick construction

ingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation was installed on the successful rebuild of Airedale

R&D test chamber temperatures can vary between –20 to +50 Degree Celsius and there is over 2 km of pipework within the rebuild.” Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe

Insulation is FM Approved per Approval Standard Class 4924. Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation also offers a European Reaction to Fire classification of BL,s1,d0, the best available for phenolic insulation, and was installed on the pipework by thermal insulation contractors, Western Thermal Limited.

Smart Switch multisystem controller from North Building Technologies

Switch. Smart Switch is North’s new multisystem controller, with touchscreen and rocker buttons. Smart Switch simplifies the


a single press. With the large Rockvilla site and over 500 connections of thick walled steel tube to be made, this was crucial. We are so impressed with the Megapress system that we are continuing to use it on other sites.” David Cameron, Associate

Director at Atelier Ten concluded, “Due to the complexity of the heating system


installed at the Rockvilla centre, and with the inclusion of a biomass boiler, we wanted to use a tubing system that was quick to install and provided no additional hazards. Thanks to its cold press application the Megapress achieved just this.” For further information on

Get the right size hot water heating unit to fit the site  Rinnai

ew from Rinnai, a UK leader in continuous flow hot water heating, is a Site

Sizing Service designed to give the right amount of hot water delivery to meet existing and planned needs. The service is available over email, iPhone and site visit  to give contractors and users the right mix of products and system which fit the needs of the site, rather than a 'one size fits all approach' seen with traditional hot water heating systems. "Every site is different, as all

installers know, and the tradition of oversizing a system 'just in case' is a very costly way for a site to have hot water on demand. The very basis of our product concept is that the end user only pays for the fuel to heat the hot water at the point of use. There are very few sites that might need a stored hot water facility  but this is very expensive  its rather like keeping a car's engine running just in case you want to drive it. It is as simple as that," says Rinnai head of Operations, Chris Goggin. He adds, "We are inviting

contractors, designers, installers, endusers and consultants to

contact us to discuss their new installations so that we can recommend the right system specific to the site. Our product can cope with virtually any size of commercial site  hotels, hospitals, schools, office blocks and larger residential properties  right through to Government departments such as the Welsh Office or 350 plus bed hotels. The complete, bespoke, personalised system is designed for the specific need of the site or user and we have a proven record of adding significant value to our customers.” For more information on the RINNAI product range visit VISIT OUR WEBSITE:
