reenBrook has created a stylish, costeffective and ecofriendly solution to

Greenbrook’s LED Striplights set to click with customers applications,

installing feature lighting with the launch of a new range of inter connectable LED striplights, the Athena range. Available in a choice of cool or

warm white and in lengths of either 35cm or 60cm, the new energy efficient LED striplight range is designed for internal use and is ideal for providing feature lighting under kitchen units, shelves or in display cabinets. Suitable for a wide range of domestic and commercial

particularly in the retail sector, the range offers a flexible solution that can be configured easily to meet the requirements of the end user and provides an extremely stylish, contemporary look. Explains Sales Director of

GreenBrook, Peter Ratcliffe: “These lights can be used to make a big design statement at a low cost and, because they are LEDs, they are energy efficient with low running

costs and a long life. All of this adds up to an extremely

functional and flexible lighting solution that provides a stylish alternative to

traditional striplights or spotlights, providing subtle downlighting for all kinds of applications.” Simple to install, the new

GreenBrook LED striplights can be linked together, clicking together quickly and easily without the

need for tools to create a seamless strip of LEDs. Up to six 35cm units can be linked together on a single circuit and users can choose either to join them continuously or to use link leads to allow a small gap between strips. These versatile lights are very

energy efficient, using less than three watts per 35cm strip and they have a typical lifespan of 25,000 hours so we expect them to be a very popular range.

Rinnai hot water – instant, continuous, limitless and sensibly economic for all types of commercial sites – the Solo stored range

delivery of hot water units and systems since the launch of its fully electronicallycontrolled gasfired continuous flow product ranges. One major part of the Rinnai Infinity


condensing water heaters is the Solo range – a highly efficient heavyduty gasfired recirculatory water heater with a completely insulated stainless steel storage cylinder. The combination of continuous flow units

with a storage cylinder for preheated hot water allows for periods of peak hour use. This is of importance at those sites where limited gas services may dictate the use and application of water heating systems. The Rinnai Solo answers this problem  with system efficiency, ease of installation and enduser satisfaction. Rinnai’s Infinity Solo low NOX water

heaters can be used for the ‘Direct to Outlet’ system, and secondary return systems. Infinity Solo will deliver a constant output temperature of 60°C or higher, ensuring stored water is at levels that significantly reduce any risk of legionella proliferation. The design parameters of this product  it is all in one compact footprint – empowering specifiers, designers, installers and engineers to benefit from unique Rinnai technology in applications it was once not previously possible. For instance, the Infinity Solo has 35kW, 37kW and 54kW sized heat engines, ensuring sites with a smaller gas meter can readily use this technology. The larger Infinity Solo model will also act as a highefficiency alternative to gas fired storage appliances that still exist in today’s market and can be easily installed on a ‘like for like’ basis where plant room services are concerned. The cylinder is stainless steel, and this

innai, the worldrenowned innovator for every possible type of commercial site, has revolutionised the supply and

always be from renewable gains and the complementary Rinnai water heater will only apply the precise amount of gas to boost the difference in temperature. Rinnai’s Infinity brand carries the widest

range of condensing gasfired water heating units and systems and all are A rated on ErP  on the market today with the most impressive efficiencies in operation, leading the field in technological innovation. Key Features of the Solo range are:

stainless steel cylinder with high thermal efficiency and ultra low standing heat loss; highly efficient continuous flow water heater is used as the heating booster; Rinnai patented leanrich low NOx burner (Solo20 & Solo32 only); compatible with renewable heating source through the renewable pipe in the cylinder (Solo20 & Solo32 only); Industry leading higher modulating ratio; compact design for limited space; inbuilt lime scale detector; Inbuilt immersion heater for the emergency backup; easy read fault diagnostics via status monitor; 10 years cylinder warranty (subject to terms & conditions).

reduces the weight compared to glass lined models, and it makes transportation and installation a lot easier. As well as the difference in weight, the cylinders also have extremely low heat loss figures (as low as 1.41kW/h day), so the user pays less to maintain the heat within the tank. One other benefit of the Infinity Solo using a

stainlesssteel cylinder is that the life expectancy of the material is far greater than that of a glasslined equivalent as glass can suffer from thermal shock causing it to crack after a period of time. Certain Infinity Solo models are renewables

compatible and supplied prefitted with a coil, meaning that the primary energy source will


socket wiring. Suitable for use as a first line indicator to identify potentially unsafe installations and wiring faults, socket testers offer a fast and effective solution when properly specified. Particularly useful as a service tool in identifying potentially unsafe conditions prior to carrying out work on existing installations or connecting new appliances, they can also be used to identify socket outlets which may require a more detailed inspection as part of periodic inspection and testing.

T ErP – we are ready

arm air, radiant and heating products are now affected by European Regulations.

Warm air heaters are subject to Lot 21 of

the directive and radiant heaters Lot 20. Minimum seasonal efficiencies for warm air is now 72% and radiant heaters is now 74%. Crucially, these minimum criteria are applicable for both new installations and when replacing existing products. As a result, customers can be assured that the heating equipment they are purchasing is highly energy efficient and emissions of harmful environmental pollutants are constrained.

As well as our ErP compliant heating

products, we also offer Airmix, a high induction air distribution system. This is an innovative concept that is quick and easy to install, reliable and inexpensive in operation. The result is very evenly distributed

conditioned air (heating, cooling or ventilation) at low air velocities and low noise levels, virtually eliminating excess heat stratification and the need for air recirculation fans. When Air Mix is used in conjunction with Reznor RTU and PREEVA units they can provide the ultimate heating solution. For more information please email or visit our website:

industrial Ethernet switches meet the growing demand for smaller, smarter control panels that need to communicate with external devices and systems in the industrial environment. Available in 5, 8, and 16 port

variants, the versatile Ethernet switches are unmanaged types, and as such require no setting up, they are plug and play. An unmanaged switch allows Ethernet devices to communicate with each other automatically using autonegotiation to determine parameters such as data rates and whether to use halfduplex or fullduplex mode.
