‘Alutrade – The Recyclers’ @alutradelimited

Alutrade is one of the UK’s largest aluminium recyclers of aluminium. The company currently works with many of the UK’s top systems companies and fabricators, offering good market prices for their waste profile. So, nothing new there you must be thinking, just another ‘scrap dealer’, but you would be wrong, Alutrade take a much more high-tech approach to the recycling of this valuable material.

Lots of materials are claiming to be ‘fully recyclable’ today, but few, if any, come close to the 100% recyclability mark than metals. Other materials such as plastics find themselves either burnt or sent to landfill, with some more specialist materials being recycled back into products, often of a lower grade.

This integrated spring feature allows facial movement ensuring the mask offers a secure face fit and seal during speech or movement of the jaw.

When it came to the exterior redecoration of Regency House in Royal Leamington Spa, the freeholders of the building had no hesitation in specifying Andura Coatings once again as the external finish.
The Andura Pro-Flex high performance decorative coating lived up to its promise of complete durability over the ten year period since it was first applied on the building in 2005. Unlike many other exterior finishes, the Andura Pro-Flex technology is not only water and dirt resistant, but also has elastomeric properties giving excellent resistance to any subsequent cracks in the substrate.

Peter James, Director and Company Secretary of the Regency House Residents Association is delighted with the Pro-Flex product which was used for the second time on the building towards the end of last year, “Everyone has been wholly satisfied with the Andura coating and we unanimously agreed that we should specify Andura once again. The Pro-Flex coating bonds to the surface rather than sitting on it and is able to accommodate the different expansions and contractions evident in the building which is a mix of solid concrete, brickwork and blockwork. We have been very impressed with the longevity of the product together with Andura’s willingness to come to site to discuss our needs.”

Installers or homeowners looking to replace old warm air heating systems with the latest highly energy efficient technology should consider the advantages of the Johnson & Starley’s Aquair Heat interface unit. This is possibly the most unique and versatile HIU (Heat Interface Unit) available and will provide all the benefits that a centralised heating system can offer, but with a host of additional advantages.

An Aquair can replace any warm air heater in a home, fully utilise the existing warm air ducting and be integrated in to almost any centralised heating source. It can be run in conjunction with an existing wet system and also has the option of supplying unheated air for cooling purposes during the warmer months.
