Sunlight and LED Unite: The Solatube Smart LED System is here


Company: HomeTech

When it comes to lighting, it’s hard to beat the sun for endlessly bright, consistent lighting. The only downside is that it goes down each night, forcing occupants to turn on electric lights after dark. The Solatube Smart LED System solves this problem using SunSense Technology, which blends sunlight with LED lighting to seamlessly illuminate rooms day and night. It’s the system that creates light in a smarter way.

Runs on autopilot
The Solatube Smart LED System operates automatically, turning the integrated LED lights on and off as light levels change throughout the day and night. When the sun goes down in the evening the system seamlessly transitions from waning daylight to radiant LED light.

Energy efficient
For even smarter lighting, the optional Occupancy Sensor maximizes energy efficiency by preventing the LEDs from triggering unless an underlit area is occupied. If movement is present when light levels are low, the Occupancy Sensor will allow the LEDs to activate. If not, they remain dormant. With the Occupancy Sensor, you’ll save on electricity and never have to worry about leaving the lights on.

So many applications
Designed to light spaces up to 2.5m2 the Smart LED System works best in small to mid-sized spaces like hallways, bathrooms, sculleries, entryways and closets. Many domestic and commercial environments can benefit from the good looks, performance and efficiency of Solatube Smart LED Technology.

Plankwall’s Shopfitting Offer – Stickman Range… Architectural Panel Joining Mouldings


Company: Plankwall

The Plankwall Stickman range expands!

Stickman is the ideal way to add edge protection for joinery projects. The aluminium profiles have been designed to add strength and protection to edges at 90 and 135 degrees.

The profiles are extruded in NZ and Asia. Used extensively in NZ and Australia where our publicity has been focused, it is intriguing that it is specified widely overseas. A recent specification was for a Chicago Law firm with the furniture built by a prominent North Carolina company. Now the issue is to appoint distributors in the USA and other countries including UK.

The NEW MC12 uses 12mm panels reducing product weight in tables, desks and cubes. The profile contributes strength, ease of assembly, and protection of edges. In the example of the KINGSTON desk shown above, using 12mm for the slab ends allows access and space for the wiring to be concealed inside. Also able to be shipped knocked down and assembled on site.



Quash that noise with a Whisper; at last a weather resistant solution to deal with environmental noise.


Company: Forman Building Systems

Acoustic sound absorbing panels are used to control problems with noise and sound in all types of environments. They allow people to speak and hear better and provide a safer work environment.

When you have external conditions to deal with like water, moisture, humidity, dirt, dust, ultraviolet light, chlorine air, and most harsh chemicals, your choice of acoustic solutions are reduced to just a few.

Products like Polyester lose performance when wet. Woodwool/cement products can weigh up to 40kgs/m2, making them difficult to suspend. Bonded aggregates can often price themselves out of the market for large scale applications.

Whisper™ from Forman Building Systems is manufactured to perform in the most rigorous outdoor and industrial environments. It is washable, very durable, long lasting and usable in hundreds of areas and applications.

50mm Whisper™ has Class A alpha w rating of 1.00. Whisper™ is available in black and white in 2400 x 1000mm sheets and in 25mm and 50mm thicknesses.
