Product Highlight: Kore Floor

KORE Floor is a high performance floor insulation system for use below a concrete floor slab, below a cement based screed on a concrete slab with a hardcore base, above a suspended concrete floor and between the joists of a suspended timber floor. Made from rigid polystyrene boards cut from moulded blocks of expanded polystyrene, the closed cell nature of the boards ensures a consistent thermal and compressive performance throughout the lifetime of the building.

Kore Floor Insulation

The Benefits Of Kore Floor 

  • Meets and exceeds building regulations
  • Suitable for Passive House and low energy construction
  • Easy to work with and install
  • Exceptional compressive strength making KORE Floor Insulation suitable for use in both domestic and commercial applications
  • Thermal mass benefits from concrete construction
  • Suitable for use with underfloor heating systems
  • Available in a range of thicknesses
  • KORE Floor Insulation is durable, rot-proof and water repellent. It will easily last the lifetime of the building

Up to ten percent of a home’s heat may be lost through an uninsulated, poorly insulated or draughty floor. This heat loss can easily be remedied with the use of KORE Floor Insulation in both new builds and retrofits (when practical). KORE Floor Insulation is available in two different grades of EPS – White or Silver. 75mm KORE Floor Silver provides an identical U-value as 100mm KORE Floor White, meaning less material may be used for the same end result. In addition, KORE Floor Insulation is available in a number of compressive strengths and is suitable for use under heavy loads.

Kore Floor is manufactured by KORE, who design, manufacture and and deliver practical insulation solutions, and are one of the leading manufacturers for EPS products. For more information, email our experienced sales team on sales@etagfixings.com

Speed, Efficiency And Flexibility – The Gripple Fast Track

 

The Gripple Fast Track offers speed, flexibility and efficient use of space when you are working in restricted spaces with all the flexibility of its wire rope counterparts.

Gripple Fast Track

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is 6 times faster to install than other bracket solutions and safer as it removes the need to cut threaded rod and channel on site. It is tool free, as the brackets move up and down the tracks to accommodate changes in position while installing electrical containment, pipework, ductwork and other M&E services in restricted spaces.

 

Once you have reached the required height by pressing the latches on each end, the bracket will the click into place with a safety lock. The maximum weight for the Fast Track is 180kg. There is zero waste as the tracks neatly fold under the brackets, so there is no need to  trim any excess, making your site safe. Due to the multi tiers, the Fast Track is a space saver and ensures that cable containment units are tight to the ceiling and is an ideal solution for residential developments and buildings.

Darkness Into Light Walk 2018

On Saturday 12th May, eight members of Etag Fixings Ireland and UK gathered at 4.15am in Cricklewood (London), Phoenix Park (Dublin), Navan and Fairyhouse Racecourse (Co. Meath) to take part in the Darkness Into Light walk for Pieta House.

Pieta House provides lifesaving support to those living in the shadows and support other organisations doing similar work all around the world. Darkness Into Light is a global movement to raise awareness and funds for the prevention of suicide and self-harm.

Gathering with the crowds in the darkness, there was a buzz of excitement as people got ready to walk or run into the light. As we walked around the 5k course in each location, we were able to see the sun slowly rise and hear the birds sing, giving everyone a feeling of hopefulness and peace. It was an amazing experience for all and one that we hope to continue next year.

Damien, Jana, Shirley, Kyle, Bethany, Jonny, Kelly and Laura all signed up for the walk and pledged to raise funds for Pieta House. Altogether, Team Etag raised €2,134.78 / £1,937. Take a look at our video with some images here https://youtu.be/yUTK76BY21A

A huge thank you to all our sponsors!!
And, well done to Team Etag!!
