New system for joining copper pipes

The SharkBite System: is a range of pipe fittings that are quick and easy to install, making it the most time efficient plumbing system available. To make a quick non-leaking join cut the pipe with a tube cutter to make sure the ends are smooth. Simply push the pipe into the fitting, making sure that the right pipe goes into the right part of the joiner. Once the pipe has been inserted fully the join is completed! Can’t be easier than that! You require less tools than you do for a traditional flared plumbing system and can complete it in a fraction of the time.

Plastic Wall Plugs

Plastic wall plugs, such as Ramset Star plugs for use in masonry applications have been around for a long time and for good reason: they work! Yet they can fail if simple instructions are not followed. Always use the right drill size suggested with the right screw, as this is a very common mistake that often leads to failure. However, to make things easier, all manufacturers colour code Wall Plugs to particular size drill bits to helping to eliminate possible mistakes.

Selecting Hinges:

Hinges always seem to be an afterthought when buying a door. There are many things to take into account when choosing the right hinge. Will they take the weight of the door? Will they need a bigger leaf to throw past a wide architrave or brickwork? Will they need to be a fixed pin if the door is to open out, reducing the risk of break-ins? Do I need stainless steel hinges if I fit them in a coastal area? Asking questions such as these should go a long way to helping you avoid any trouble when it comes to installing a door.
