VIVID with NEW Dryline Technology by Vogue (UK)


The UK’s largest British designer and manufacturer of designer radiators and towel warmers, Vogue (UK), proudly launch the new VIVID Towel Warmer: a contemporary heating design now available with Electric Dryline Technology.

This pioneering and new Dryline Technology exclusive to Vogue (UK) means that VIVID does not contain any fluids.

Instead, this contemporary towel rail design is heated by a silicone heater cable via a 3-core cable which can be attached to a fuse spur, if required. 

So what’s the advantage of Electric Dryline Technology? Put simply, this type of heating solution does not operate off the central heating or hot water system, allowing for greater freedom of installation and efficiency.

Could you use a helping hand from the Rhino accounts app?


If you’d like some help with your accounts and need advice on submitting tax returns, try the HMRC-recommended app Rhino. 

Must I retain paper receipts for my expenses?

No. HMRC no longer requires you to present paper receipts. They only need to have a copy that is readable. A digital copy is fine and is more reliable than a till receipt that may fade over time. Just use Rhino on your phone to photograph receipts as you get them. 

How about invoices? Should I keep paper versions of those?

Press-fit could unlock life-saving potential of Retrofit sprinklers

Press-fit technology

Press-fit technology on modern sprinkler systems can save lives by facilitating quicker, easier and less disruptive installations in existing buildings, says Geberit, despite Dame Judith Hackitt’s omission of mandatory sprinkler installations in her review of Building Regulations and fire safety laws.

The Hackitt Review has been criticised for its failure to recommend a ban on combustible cladding products or the mandatory installation of sprinkler systems or automatic fire suppression systems in all new domestic buildings and existing tower blocks. Both measures had been proposed by RIBA as part of its recommended baseline prescriptive requirements ahead of the Hackitt Review’s publication in May.

How Businesses Can Ensure Compliance with Water Health and Safety?

How Businesses Can Ensure Compliance with Water Health and Safety?

Ensuring high levels of water hygiene is important for any business. Not only can poor water hygiene lead to prosecution or negative PR but it can also lead to potentially fatal illnesses. Which is why businesses are held responsible for a wide range of governmental requirements to ensure that their workplace water supply is both safe and hygienic. 

In this article, we will discuss two major areas of water legislation – the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 and the legislation covering legionella control.

All hands to the pump! The top considerations for installing a shower pump…

Salamander Pumps

To help train the next generation of plumbers, Kenneth Vance, training manager at Salamander Pumps, took to New Durham College to demonstrate how to successfully install a shower pump. Here, he gives us his top tips from the day…

Check the pump’s suitability

There are two types of shower pumps – positive heads and negative (universal) heads, but knowing which one is best for the job, and the differences between the two, is crucial when choosing the correct shower pump. In cases where any point in the system after the pump, such as outlet pipework, shower heads or taps goes within 600mm of the base of the cold water tank or above, a negative head (universal) pump would be the best option.

Van maintenance - 6 top tips for a happy and healthy van

Not only will proper maintenance of your van keep you safe for the long miles on the road, it will also increase the value, if you ever need to sell it.

Doing simple maintenance tasks can prevent larger issues developing, helping you to avoid unwanted visits to the garage and saving you time and money. So, here are Moneybarn’s top tips for keeping your van road-ready…

Tyre maintenance

A van’s tyres need to be checked more often than a car, as the extra weight of a van and its contents means more burden on tyres. Too little pressure increases wear and tear, but too much pressure increases the chance of a blow-out, so aim to check tyres once a fortnight to ensure they are safe and performing well.
