BEST PRODUCTS | 2017 Grate news with three new designs released With over 10,000 products in its range, Schlüter-Systems says it provides second-to-none edge protection, complete systemsolutions Driving for the best as golf centre extension gets pitched roof underlay 42 BUILDING PRODUCTS | DECEMBER 2017 and dedicated technical support, to ensure the perfect support, protection and decoration to any tiling project. Vapour and air permeable pitched roof underlay from A.Proctor Group has been chosen as part of a new golf centre extension at Carnoustie Golf Links. The new two-storey building will include a state-of-the-art golf practice and training facility with magnificent views over the golf course. Ogilvie Construction began work on the project in February 2017 with completion due by December 2017, ahead of the Open Championship’s visit to Carnoustie in July 2018. Tony Bowe, site manager for Ogilvie Construction explains his reasons for the selection of Roofshield. “We chose Roofshield because of its superior quality and breathability, assuring protection for the new buildings at Carnoustie.” Roofshield’s patented SMS (Spunbond Meltblown Spunbond) structure allows high levels of airflow, in addition to the transport of moisture vapour, making the formation of condensation in the roof space virtually impossible. It is said to have an extremely high degree of vapour permeability, as well as air permeability, so will still perform in conditions in which air tight alternatives will not. This project will provide an impressive new facility for the local community, and will be open to all members of the public. www.proctorgroup.com Felt ceiling a way to judges Heart Architectural products company Hunter Douglas has won an international design prize for HeartFelt, its new felt ceiling system.

With so many options available in the way of tiles, Schlüter recognises that drains are an increasingly important element in creating a cohesive whole for a wetroom. The new designs for Schlüter-Kerdi Drain and Schlüter- Kerdi Line —Floral, Curve and Pure—have been developed with current bathroom trends in mind, yet are versatile and neutral enough to stand the test of time. Floral is a geometric design with just the right amount of softness, with a uniform pattern makes it equally suitable for wetrooms with a structured industrial or softly textured theme. The simple, playful accents of the Curve design translate into grates that are the perfect complement to all manner of trends—from the organic feel of a natural retreat to the clean-cut lines of a reduced geometric wetroom. Crisp and minimalist, Pure is described as a no-fuss, no-frills design that is great to have at hand for its timeless looks. The new grate designs are available in Schlüter’s brushed stainless-steel finish. In addition, all of the new grate designs come equipped with a contour frame, making for easy cleaning and a sharp, sleek aesthetic. Schlüter is committed to continually expanding the range of options available to specifiers and tilers, allowing for increased creativity and the highest quality finishes. www.schluter.co.uk
