Zink ROOFLIGHTS & ROOF VENTS Copper Stainless 01992 801927 www.almhm.co.uk Dow plays its part in key hospital project Dow Building Solutions’ XPS products have been used in the construction of the Midland Metropolitan Hospital in Sandwell. The new facility is expected to have 670 beds and 15 operating theatres, transforming healthcare provision in the area. It is said that half a million people will benefit from the new A&E, maternity, children’s and inpatient adult services that will be available from the hospital. 9000m² of 160mm and 180mm XENERGY SL and XENERGY MK has been supplied to Prater. Dow has been assisting with the design process through the provision of U-value calculations and other technical assistance, drawing on the expertise of its experienced staff. Richard Powell, sales manager, Dow Building and Construction, said: “We are proud to be working on this key new piece of healthcare infrastructure in the West Midlands. Midland Metropolitan Hospital is set to provide world-class healthcare from a beautifully designed building, where architects have scaled new heights. XENERGY is still capable of providing exceptional thermal performance at lesser thicknesses, allowing architects greater creative flexibility.” www.dow.com Skypod range elevated to new angle Eurocell has launched its latest model – Skypod Acute. The new addition features a steeper pitch: 35° in fact, a full 15° more than the current design. The company says that the new 35° pitch is visually very different to the standard 20°, making it suitable for more commercial applications such as schools, colleges, hospitals and offices, where this pitch degree is better suited to larger, multistorey buildings. Eurocell says that the Skypod Acute sports the same stylish, narrow glazing bars and generous sightlines for residential properties as the rest of the Skypod range. Furthermore, its square format now fits an even smaller aperture, allowing even more light into parts of the home that previously was not possible. In addition, no sidebars are needed on sizes up to 1.5m x 2.75m, so further improving sightlines and letting in more natural light. Installation is said to be quick and straightforward and everything needed is supplied ‘out of the box’ with pre-drilled screw holes for accuracy and convenience. Skypod Acute is supplied with selfcleaning, temperature controlled glass in Blue, Neutral, Bronze and Clear as standard, with a U-value of 1.0W/m²K achievable. Eurocell says that its product offers better value for money than aluminium alternatives and that its contemporary design means that Skypod is the most effective means of boosting headroom and volume, while welcoming extra natural light into otherwise drab flatroofed rooms. Skypod Acute has a 10-year guarantee and is available in the full colour range of Anthracite Grey, Moondust Grey, Golden Oak, Rosewood and White – with a white interior finish as standard to maximise the light and airy feel. www.eurocell.co.uk DOMELIGHT COMPANY NEW GLASS RANGE 2017 more choice, better prices.
