Good arguments
It is vastly more convenient, and more simple to control roller shutters or awnings fully automatically with the simple press of a button; moving them manually seems a cumbersome task by comparison.
The even and smooth movement via tube motor is gentle on the mechanisms of roller blinds and awnings.
The controllers and the numerous accessories, such as light sensor, wind sensor or radio receiver provide you with many options.
With an integrated time controller, roller blinds can be automatically opened and closed at a specific time, or even randomly. This helps to confuse potential burglars and gives the impression that someone is home while you’re away.]]>

Imagine that most beautiful oaks which are growing in our French and European forests, then they are sent to Asia to be transformed into multilayer wood flooring to come back cheaper than the wood floors produced in France.

This has an impact on our ecosystem, on our economy and of course on the carbon footprint linked to the transport.

Products which are made in Asia are usually sold under European brands and this will lead on a medium term to the end of our added value.

Europlac realizes all his products in France, in his factory not far from Bordeaux. We are always creating and we are aware concerning our responsibility not to be disconnected from the demand.

20’000 km of saving is a concept which comes to support all Europlac’s current developments.]]>

- Complies with the standards for intruder detection systems in France, Belgium and Switzerland
- Meets European standards EN50131 and EN50136

Effective immediately, the SPC intruder detection system meets the official industry standards for France (NF), Belgium (TO-14 / INCERT) and Switzerland (SES EMA). SPC also complies with the European standards EN50131 and EN50136. The SPC products thus qualify for security applications where end users and insurance companies require compliance with these standards.

The new approvals apply specifically to SPC intruder detection control panels with the latest firmware (Version 3.4.5) as well as to a wide range of SPC peripherals such as comfort keypads, key switches and indicator modules. The approvals make the SPC portfolio particularly attractive to installers and distributors who operate in multiple countries since they no longer have to order separate products for each market.

SPC is a versatile intruder detection system from the Siemens Security Products business unit that can be configured for applications in nearly any environment: offices and retail stores as well as warehouses, banks and factories. Since SPC installations have a modular structure, they can readily be tailored to suit specific customer requirements and they are easily expandable. In addition, the modular design offers a high degree of future proofing.

Key features of the SPC system include fully integrated and secure IP-based communication, an embedded web server, advanced door control and an extensive software suite with powerful remote control and monitoring facilities. The system also supports IP-based audio and video verification to minimize the number of false alarms. SPC supports multiple languages, which simplifies installation and increases user-friendliness. Large installations benefit from the powerful functions for managing multiple intruder detection control panels.

Additional security features can be implemented for banking applications, including dual-PIN access, automatic testing of seismic detectors as well as support for personal security devices that provide increased safety for bank employees.

With IntelliBrite 5g, combinations of individual colored LEDs are mixed and matched to achieve a vibrant spectrum of colors. These combinations are power sequenced to illuminate and cycle through colors at varying speeds, and in different sequences of color. Combined with a custom reflector and unique lens design, the IntelliBrite 5g offers super efficiency while being the brightest yet most energy efficient underwater LED light available.
FEATURES
A superior reflector design assures more light is directed toward the pool bottom to further increase intensity and color effects, while minimizing glare
Superior lens geometry distributes light in an optimum way to avoid “hot spots” on the pool bottom. Light intensity and color are distributed more uniformly throughout your pool
Pool lens can be rotated to 180 degrees to provide wide beam pattern (standard) or narrow beam pattern.
IntelliBrite technology makes use of the brightest and most energy efficient LED’s available in underwater pool and spa lights - up to 50% less energy comsumption than competitor’s lights.
Set one of 5 predetermined fixed colors to match or create the mood for the evening – blue, green, magenta, white, and red or select from 7 popular "color shows" that come preprogrammed into IntelliBrite
IntelliBrite was designed to work with IntelliTouch® and EasyTouch® the leading control systems for pool, spa, and poolscape equipment automation. In effect, you transfer control of IntelliBrite to the IntelliTouch or EasyTouch system which controls all your other backyard and pool features.
IntelliBrite 5g Color Pool lights are backwards compatible with first generation IntelliBrite lights.
Note: All 120 volt pool and spa lights must be connected to a branch circuit protected by a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI)..

The unique tank-in-tank construction provides optimal working conditions for heat pumps up to 12 kW. The large buffer tank (> 100 l.) is suitable for space heating such as under-floor heating or wall mounted radiators. The upper heating coil in the buffer tank pre-heats DHW before shifting it to the DHW tank in the top. In addition, the water in the buffer tank transfers heat to the domestic hot water tank. Both features reduces return temperature to solar collectors / heat pump and maximizes COP like no other solution on the market. There is no heat transfer from the DHW to the buffer tank due to carefully designed features. Should the heat pump fail, there is full electric back up through the 9 kW electric heater.


Once there is domestic hot water use, the variable valve in the heat pump switches its flow into the 1,8m² heating coil in the DHW tank, providing maximum heat transfer and domestic hot water production. During this time, the buffer vessel continues to provide consistent temperature to the space heating system, without compromising performance. In addition, the Optima Triple Coil allows for a third energy source such as a boiler if desired. The 3kW immersion heater heats the water up to 70°C. Separate ½” sensor pockets for precise control from the energy source is factory fitted. Low heat loss is provided by OSO ECO Foam, with impressive key figures for GWP of 1 (Global Warming Potential) and ODP of 1 (Ozone Depletion Potential.)

Key advantages:

The ultimate tank-in-tank unit for heat pumps up to 12kW and solar collectors up to 12m², providing both DHW & space heating
Unsurpassed energy efficiency with minimum heat loss and maximized COP
Impressive DHW production compared to traditional tank-in-tank units

The firm’s projects thus far have been focused in its homeland and attempt to challenge the boundaries of contemporary building by the simplicity of their design, a principle which informs the design of all their projects to the core. The house is something of a statement given its setting in an otherwise very traditional Norwegian neighbourhood. The Trondheim house involved working in strict accordance with the building code and regulations on Norwegian soil; walls are 30cm thick and the roofs 50cm.

The architects’ previous project, the play shelters, took the form of small meeting modules placed close to a school in Oppland, made from Kebony Scots Pine. The shelters were conceived to increase social interaction and encourage activity among children; they were designed with help from the children.

Another recent project from Tegnestue is the boathouse, located on the outermost reaches of the Møre-coast in an old fishing area. The boathouse was redesigned for summertime recreational use. The original boathouse had to be torn down but many of the original materials were used to reduce the buildings impact on the environment and reflect some of its original heritage. The boathouse is clad in Kebony, which acquires a silver grey patina over time, complementing the old materials used throughout the rest of the building.

Yashar Hanstad from TYIN said: ‘We value Kebony as it is a Norwegian wood and it is important to us that the process used to create it is environmentally friendly. Its low maintenance and the silver patina it develops over time are extremely appealing for our projects. This patina is particularly pertinent for the boathouse restoration project as the silver-grey colour reflects the fragility of the building and helps camouflage it in its natural and remote setting.’

<![CDATA[THE NEW ICONS OF THE DOMESTIC SPACE]]>
The great potential of the new Smeg 50’s Retro Style collection of small appliances is just this, details that add value to a whole. Together with Matteo Bazzicalupo and Raffaella Mangiarotti of deepdesign, Smeg has delved into the not too distant past - full of design myths, people and objects - and re-emerged with many extracts: sinuous lines and warm colour tones all of which have been put together with the latest technology. Similar to the adored FAB28 - the fridge that is not only a fridge - the collaboration has created so much more than simple electrical appliances.

Symbolic objects, icons that transform the space that they occupy, the new 50’s Retro Style small appliances recollect the past. They are capable of shaping everyday spaces, they breathe new life into old ways and preceding habits, such as is the way in art and memory.

Curved and compact products, star characters of the kitchen, developed for people who want to dabble at being a chef, but not only. They are for those who love to surround themselves with strong aesthetics without compromising high quality and performance. From the 2x2 and 2x4 slice toasters, to the standard or variable temperature kettles, to the blender and stand mixer, Smeg small domestic appliances are tools that ensure excellent performance in all stages of food preparation, and have powerful personalities to match.

The new collection will have its world premiere at Fuori Salone during Milan design week, and are the result of intensive research and Smeg’s continuing ability to express and excel “Made in Italy” design.Dicover more visiting the new www.smeg50style.com]]>

<![CDATA[Solar tracker from AllEarth renewables]]>
The 150kW Bridport, Vermont project utilizing Vermont-made AllSun Trackers was a “Project of Distinction” finalist and won “Project of Distinction 2014 Fan Favorite” at the PV America event in Boston last week.

The 1.5 acre solar orchard consists of 26 pole-mounted dual-axis AllSun Trackers, which use GPS and wireless technology to follow the sun throughout the day. The solar trackers are manufactured locally byAllEarth Renewables of Williston, Vt. According to AllEarth Renewables, the solar tracker system boosts the energy production by up to 45 percent over roof-top installations.

The project received the award, which celebrates major achievements within the solar industry, from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA).

SMA America, manufacturer of the SMA Sunny Boy inverters utilized in the project to maximize power production, submitted the solar orchard for the award. The farm was noteworthy for its use of virtual net metering on unused agricultural land to the Vermont Hard Cider Company, LLC, maker of Woodchuck® Hard Cider, the original craft cider brand known for its authenticity and innovative cider varieties.

The use of the 26 distributed inverters also allowed the project to be sited on rural single-phase electric lines and avoid costly distribution line upgrades.

“We are very proud of our partnerships with AllEarth Renewables and the farmer hosting the Bridport solar orchard. We believe in working together as a community to maximize environmental sustainability, and are honored by the recognition the solar orchard recently received,” said Woodchuck Communications Manager, Nate Formalarie.

In its first year in operation, the 150kW project produced over 252,000 kWh, supplying approximately 15% of the power needed for the cidery. The project was installed in the winter of 2013. Production reports for the solar orchard can be found here.]]>

<![CDATA[Haute Couture for the Grand Théatre in Albi]]> For the cladding of the façade Dominique Perrault Architecture chose ALUCOBOND spectra® in combination with a metal canvas.
The identity and personality of the building is reached by an overwhelming combination of colour-changing aluminium composite panels and a bronze-gold-coloured metal mesh.
The façade of the new Grand Theatre in Cordeliers was cladded with more than 670 ALUCOBOND® panels, which throw different colours back to the passer-by depending on viewing angle and light incidence. The tinted glass windows with very high thermal and acoustical performance break the daylight smoothly into the large entrance area.
The façade creates a play of orange and copper colours like a sonny autumn day. In addition the building got a tailor-made copper metal mesh. The aesthetic design of Perrault transforms the building almost into an artwork.
The comparison to French Haute Couture is obvious: the combination of ALUCOBOND® and metal mesh is striking but concurrently conveys elegance and suppleness to the architectural ensemble

for architecture and design tourists. From afar the building attracts attention with the silver shimmer of its aluminium and glass facade. The entire building, with its dynamic curving design, devotes itself to the surrounding landscape of the Rhine and Siebengebirge mountains. From the sixth to third floors, the building plummets towards the Rhine. In doing so, spacious roof terraces could be integrated into each of these floors as well as an outdoor pool on the third level, which also affords a view onto the Rhine.

Architect Karl-Heinz Schommer designed a building which fits in perfectly with its surroundings. The airiness of the building is on the one hand the result of its aspiring, arcuate form. Its solidity, on the other hand, is played down by the combination of transparent glass and light roof cladding in the form of Reynobond aluminium composite panels. This winning formula is the outcome of sophisticated collaboration between architects, engineers and craftsmen.

The first task was to ensure the technical and physical safety of the roof and facade with its multitude of recesses, edges and connecting lines from the north to south plinths. In addition to numerous complex details, those responsible developed a metal roof construction whereby the metal roof, with a total surface of 4,860 sqm, was constructed over a standing rebate system on a reinforced concrete floor. The outer membrane is constructed from Reynobond aluminium cassettes KH35, each measuring up to 6.73 m x 1.60 m.

The benefits of such cladding were appealing to the architect Karl-Heinz Schommer, both in terms of the shimmering silver appearance and the ease with which it can be transformed. “The many curves and arcs of the building and the possibility to prefabricate large panels were a reason for choosing Reynobond, in addition to the material properties and designs.” The special properties of the material of particular importance to him were durability, low level of maintenance and contribution towards sustainability of the building.

<![CDATA[ TOSCA CLUBCHAIR design by Monica Armani]]> Fri, 27 Jun 2014 12:11:53 +0200 <![CDATA[mafi Natural Wooden Walls]]>
mafi was invited into a private house in beautiful Salzburg and was allowed to photograph a somewhat wrinkled model. This natural beauty goes by the name of mafi Oak Country Riva Mezzo, brushed and white oiled. A characteristic feature of this product is the scraped surface which gives the floor a wild but at the same time homogeneous surface appearance. The floorboards run impressively through this private house’s spa area, and earth the often sterile looking appearance of the wet areas. Real wood in connection with water is rarely seen, even though both of these materials give people an incomparable feeling of well-being.

In this case, the mafi floorboards were mounted on the wall - a form of processing which more often creates that little bit extra for the room concept. The installation is usually done on a cushion wood construction and is enjoyably simple. The wear on the boards is negligible in comparison to a floor. Nevertheless, they should be cleaned every now and then with the appropriate mafi Wooden Floor Soap. The wood thus remains permanently flexible and the soap also has an antiseptic and antibacterial effect.

In wet areas, regardless of whether floor or wall, there are special requirements on the design. Sealed wood (lacquered, UV-oiled etc.) can only withstand water and moisture as long as the seal isn’t damaged. Here at mafi we follow a completely different approach with the naturally oiled surface. The oil penetrates into the plank and provides stability without closing the pores of the wood. Thus, as in this example, the moisture can be absorbed by the wood and then released back into the room through the room temperature. Due to this moisture absorbance and dissipation the volume of the wood changes and this results in gaps forming. To greatly reduce this effect, we rely on a symmetrical plank construction where the top and back layers are made of the same wood. The resulting counter effect stabilizes the plank as a whole and is the most effective protection against gaps. That’s why mafi natural wooden floors are predestined for installation on underfloor heating.]]>

<![CDATA[Daisalux Emergency Lighting. New Izar Series]]> Its design means it can be mounted in cavity ceilings as shallow as only 10cm.
In order to integrate as fully as possible with its architectural surroundings the luminaire is available in three colours; white, black and silver grey RAL9006.

The Izar Series contains a cutting-edge High-Brightness LED (HB LED) with two possible optical units: symmetrical lens for open areas and asymmetrical lens for escape routes. Both lenses are designed to comply with EN-1838 standard, with an optimum mounting height of between 2.2 mm and 5 m, permitting the coverage of surfaces of between 92 and 146 m2 with 0.5 lx.

The luminaire also has an electronic module and batteries. This module is specifically designed to be able to be installed in spaces of only 40 mm in diameter.
Its 34 mm narrow sides, with no sharp edges make it easy to install in cavity ceilings. A flexible joint (EPDM) for the union between the electronic module and the battery module allows for a wide range of turning options during installation and maintenance.

The highly efficient optical unit greatly reduces the need for battery back up when operating in an emergency. Its NiMH batteries are powered by a microprocessed pulsating power charger, reducing electricity consumption when charging to only 0.5W.

The Izar Series includes a permanent model which uses a light sensor when it is used in eco-permanent mode, switching the luminaire off when used with mains on when it detects light and switching on when the ambient light decreases.

The different operations of the series allow for the possibility to choose the autotest model (A) or the centralised test (TCA), providing compliance with EN-50172 standard for maintenance management.]]>

We believe this European EPD will bring uniformity and reduce the complexity for our main stakeholders in the European building industry”, according to John Relou, Sustainability Officer at ROCKPANEL.

BRE Group
Victoria Blake, BRE’s Associate Director of Sustainable Products said; “ROCKPANEL’s verified EN 15804 EPD illustrates that they firmly believe in sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of their manufacturing. They can now positively distinguish their products from the competition across Europe”.

Important criteria: growing demand and sustainability
ROCKPANEL recognizes a growing requirement from architects and contractors to use sustainable materials in facade design.

This fits perfectly with both new build and renovation projects for which energy and aesthetic aspects are important. ROCKPANEL has a long term relationship with the BRE, originating within the Environmental Profiles scheme. Already in 2010 the BRE acknow- ledged that ROCKPANEL’s low maintenance façade panels meet the highest A+ and A environmental performance ratings for the installed product.

For an increasing percentage of building projects material choices are based on sustainability. This certification by BRE Global establishes ROCKPANEL as an independently recognized sustainable choice. Based on this long term relationship ROCKPANEL became one of the early adopters when the BRE launched the new scheme in accordance with the EN 15804 standard.]]>
