1. Stelrad launches new ‘boutique’ collection The new Boutique Collection from Stelrad Radiators includes familiar products such as Caliente, Concord and Column, but also new ranges Como, Lecco and Silhouette as well as new additions and designs for established styles like the Concord Side Concept and Concord Side Chrome – and Concord Chrome Vertical. The addition of a wider range of vertical radiators recognises the demand for narrower, taller radiators that need to fit a smaller radiator footprint. The addition of coloured radiators available from stock adds more depth to the range – with a number of the existing and new radiators available in anthracite grey from stock and most of the Collection can be ordered in up to 36 colours. The new Como is a flat brushed stainless-steel rectangular tube design for both modern and contemporary homes. The new Column Vertical Concept in anthracite grey is a combination of traditional design and modern colouring. And the new Traditional Column offers a classic look in traffic white with a chrome frame.

4. Knauf Insulation goes for the next generation Knauf Insulation has enhanced its Earthwool Soffit Linerboard range to meet the increasing demand for non-

combustible insulation in car parks, stadiums and commercial units. Earthwool Soffit

Linerboard has a Euroclass A1 Reaction to Fire Classification rating and, now, a lower thermal conductivity of just 0.034 W/. It is less susceptible to thermal bridging thanks to a new fixing method which uses tube washers in the corners of each slab instead of traditional all-steel fixings.

The entire installation process has been made easier as the new product recipe makes each slab more rigid. Earthwool Soffit Linerboard now comes in thicknesses from 50 to 220mm, with an additional base layer available to meet build-up requirements.

There are two options:

Standard has a black glass veil facing, while Extra is bonded to an off-white cementitious particle board.

It is made with

ECOSE® Technology, Knauf Insulation’s bio-based binder which makes it robust and durable yet soft to touch, easy to handle and low in dust and VOCs.
