nuie will be attending the Installer Show for the first time this year, marking its inaugural appearance at the event. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the company’s fluted glass range, as well as its popular brushed brass taps and LED mirrors.
Located at stand D144, nuie’s stand will feature a team of knowledgeable representatives equipped with tablets, ready to demonstrate the company’s new 3D Design Tool. This tool empowers homeowners to envision their dream bathroom and visualise nuie’s products within the context of their own homes.
Installers will have the opportunity to see and try the new BetteLevel shower tray installation system on the Bette stand (A40) at the Installer Show. BetteLevel has a self-locking foot system featuring telescopic feet that are glued to the shower tray. The shower tray is then raised to the desired height and the feet lock in place automatically.
Also on show will be the company’s BetteAir shower tray and its invisible anti-slip finish for shower trays and baths, BetteAnti-Slip Sense.
At this year’s Installer Show the company will be focusing on its range of underfloor heating solutions which comprise both electric and hydronic systems. The new DITRA-HEAT-PS is a peel and stick version of the company’s established electric system. The membrane enables simple, clean and quick installation of electric underfloor heating with a thin layer of pre-applied pressure sensitive adhesive on the underside.
Schlüter-Systems will demonstrate Schlüter-BEKOTEC-THERM, a water-fed underfloor heating solution with low construction height. The modular system results in an energy-efficient heated floor system with low water supply temperatures.
The team will be conducting practical demonstrations throughout the show and there will be a competition to see who can install heating cable into the DITRA-HEAT membrane in the fastest time, with a chance to win £1,000 worth of Schlüter products.
At InstallerShow, Navigator is presenting The Serpent, which it says is a new way to make flexible connections – particularly if you’re working in a restricted, confined space – like under a sink where there are several other pipes and fittings. The company says The Serpent has no inner liner to rupture or block, and even when the hose is bent to an acute angle, the full bore is maintained, resulting in perfect flow and much easier installation.
It’s NSF Regulation-4 approved for use with potable water and uses WRAS approved materials. It comes in white and has a wipe clean outer cover.
Visitors to InstallerShow will be able to Stelrad’s new range of electric radiators – its Electric Series. It’s the first time the Stelrad brand has ventured into the electric marketplace and the new range will include a dozen or so different models with a number of sizes of each model available, with standard radiators for any room along with a selection of towel rails specifically targeted at bathrooms and en-suites.
The new range will include a number of new products like the Stelrad Electric Column design – a rounded vertical tube column radiator available in three sizes in both white or anthracite grey. There’s the Stelrad Electric Agata and the Agata E-Flow – a straight, flat tube towel rail design, featuring five banks of three tubes with spaces between each bank, available in three sizes in both white and anthracite grey.
