PRODUCT PROFILES | GENERAL PRODUCTS Combating air pollution 46 BUILDING PRODUCTS | OCTOBER 2016 Making better use of space Campaigners and disabled toilet solutions company Clos-o-Mat, developed Space to Change to bridge the gap between conventional wheelchair-accessible toilets and full-specification Changing Places facilities, to provide an acceptable alternative where space and/or cost is a limiting factor. Firefly Community, an online special needs community, is driving the campaign, supporting campaigners and raising awareness of the need for accessible toilets that include height adjustable changing benches and hoists. According to Clos-o-Mat, making better use of existing toilet space could help grow the customer base. Research shows that 20% of the average business’ customers are disabled people who spend £80billion a year. For many of the 5million people with special needs, they cannot spend that money where they want because they cannot use the toilet at many restaurants, cinemas, shopping centres and supermarkets. Yet many wheelchair-accessible toilets in those locations already have the space needed (7.5m2), and only require the addition of a couple of fixtures. www.clos-o-mat.com Combining the durability and lightweight design of the Decra Classic tile with the de-polluting technology of the Noxite membrane, Icopal now offers the best of both worlds with the Decra Noxite tile. The appearance of Decra Noxite looks similar to some types of concrete tiles, is totally dry fixed throughout and contoured to provide a strong, interlocking roof covering. Other benefits are its lighter weight, speed of installation and reduced transportation costs. With installation time being significantly faster than traditional roof tiles, labour costs are also reduced. Mike Leigh of Icopal, commented: “We have combined two popular products, so we are confident that they will be the perfect pairing of aesthetics and de-polluting technology, without compromising performance. The design of the tiles makes them ideal for modular construction, as well as more traditional pitched roofing projects.” Decra Noxite tiles come with 40 year insured guarantees. www.icopal.co.uk Protecting your home Keeping rain and snow from causing water damage to your roof, rafters, exterior and interior walls is crucial to helping protect dwellings.

The fabrication service can save contractors time and money, with (the time taken to measure, cut and join the individual components of a soil stack system) - and the need for on-site testing - significantly reduced. Working with the Marley technical services team, drawings will be created for each stack element, ensuring every detail is to specification and fully compliant with current regulations. A team of fabrications will then pre-build the HDPE soil stacks in a controlled factory environment, to project specifications and with pressure testing on each stack as standard. Stacks are then delivered to a pre-arranged schedule, ready for when customers need them on site. marleypd.com
