A Door of Two Halves from Force 8

The new stable door from Force 8 is revolutionary in design; the finish on the door makes it hard to distinguish it from a traditional timber door.

The Stable Door is made in two parts either the whole stable door or just the top leaf can be opened. In this way, the entire door can be shut to retain heat in the winter, or in warmer weather, the top leaf can be left open to let in light and air whilst maintaining a degree of privacy and keeping in small children or pets.

What makes the new Force 8 stable door different is that it’s fabricated in two complete half’s, with the rebate for the join built into the slab. This means there are no extra fittings needed, just the high security locking system, which include leaves with metal edges and five point locking system and two hooks. The stable doors come with adjustable hinges; the doors can be aligned horizontally and vertically so a perfect fit can be assured, particularly across the join of the two halves.

The finish offers a stunning modern take on the traditional tongue and groove design, and like all Force 8 composite doors, they are constructed to the new building regulations, which require new doors to have a U-Value of 1.8w/m2k (1.6w/m2k in Scotland) or less!

With this latest product Force 8 have establish themselves as one of the leading suppliers of composites doors in the country, and a force to be reckoned with. Part of their range includes a composite Fire Door, one of the first of its kind. The new series of doors has been designed and tested to the highest specifications (BS: 476 part 22: 1987) at the Warrington Fire Research Centre. The fire doors have been specialty designed for situations such as flats, shared entrances, or in domestic dwellings between the garage and house, where building regulations require an approved FD30 fire door. This gives the customer peace of mind, and specifiers a greater choice without having to compromise on style, and the new doors come with a full ten-year guarantee.

Sustainable Architectural Paint and Coatings Consumer Demand Trends for 2011

As the sustainable architectural paints and coatings manufacturers and related professional contractors continue to vie for their market position in the 2011 U.S. architectural paints and coatings projected $16.4 billion in sales, their consumers are demanding more on and off line information to verify who manufactures what brand, their sustainable practices and how to sort through the non-performing manufactures and contractors online references.

The architectural paint and coating industry mergers and acquisitions have left their consumers confused as to brand identity and what they’re actually buying; they can’t determine who owns the products and if they’re following sustainable practices or not. Equally, the consumers are faced with another identity crisis with the painting contractors they find on or off line and if they’re the reputable painting contractor they claim to be.

Since January 2011, SEO Brand Management LLC, of Mesa Arizona, has been uncovering a variety of painting contractors (and contractors in general) that have changed their business names, addresses, re-directing their online assets to new online businesses or creating a volume of shill reviews to displace the derogatory references from the consumers online view, and many are on their 2nd, 3rd or 4th act of deceptive and just plain and simple fraudulent online activities.

We maintain over 50 top keyword positions in this industry with our Arizona Kelly Moore Paint website and field several calls a day from consumers who simply want a quality paint and painting contractor they can trust, and we’ve earned that trust with our sustainable architectural paint and coating manufacturers and professional painting contractors online search engine marketing and reputation management services; We satisfy the consumer demand of Architectural brand and contractor identity nationwide and support this with professional architectural coatings and contractor keyword optimized video marketing services for clear and concise consumer engagement.

Our 2011 stats are impressive; our Sustainable Paint and Coatings Manufacturers, Kelly Moore Paint and Glidden Professional Paints sales are growing every day. If our customers are outside of our Kelly Moore Paint service area our partnered Glidden Paint stores will match it with comparable and verified sustainable practice paint and coatings product in any Kelly Moore Paint color there is. Kelly Moore Arizona Retail stores were sold to ICI, who was acquired by AkzoNoble, which has now been acquired by Glidden; we track them all.

More Construction press releases Report An Early Spring In Power Tool Sales

The Easter weekend has for several years now been about more than fluffy bunnies, chocolate eggs or even religious services. For many the extended Easter break is annual DIY time – it represents a chance to get around to those jobs in the house that have been crying out for attention., an online retailer of power tools, commented today that during every year of their trading they have seen a growth in power tool sales just prior to the Easter season as people have kitted themselves out for planned DIY jobs. Tool-Net added that this year there has been an earlier surge in power tool sales and a spokesperson today suggested that this may be due to the additional Bank Holiday that has been announced for the Royal Wedding. Tool-Net suggest that this early peak in power tool sales may indicate that rather than watching the wedding at home many may be welding at home.

This year we are all being given an extra opportunity to carry out our annual batch of spring DIY due to the way that Easter falls and the Royal Wedding. The marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday April 29th allows the nation an extra day’s holiday which follows hard on the heels of our four-day Easter weekend break. This in turn is followed quickly by the May Day Bank Holiday on Monday, May 2nd. This means that this year many will enjoy a four-day week, a three-day week and then another four-day week.

Tool-Net have noticed sales of power tools to home users, rather than trade users, seem to be peaking earlier this year than in previous years and a spokesperson hypothesised that “it is possible the additional bank holiday, and the fortuitous late Easter, is really concentrating minds on the opportunity to catch up on some jobs about the house. It is also possible that more people are planning to undertake DIY this year rather than call in a tradesperson due to the continuing economic uncertainty.”

A recent survey of more than 200,000 people found that Easter was the time of year most people were likely to undertake DIY in their homes. The survey also discovered that the DIY job people are most likely to complete over the Easter break is working in the garden. This was followed by indoor DIY jobs such as laying down new flooring, replacing the bathroom suite or fitting a new kitchen. Back outdoors the laying down of a new patio or decking were also popular Easter DIY projects.

The early power tool sales this year reported by Tool-Net suggest that we are tooling up with a Makita LXT202 or a Fein Angle Grinder for an extended Easter of DIY. Rather than watching the wedding it appears many are planning to be drilling, grinding, sawing and fixing. Either that or we are all kitting out our kitchens and gardens early for celebratory wedding parties!
