INSINKERATOR® DONATES STEAMING HOT WATER TAPS TO LOCAL CHARITIES

InSinkErator® has donated a 3N1 steaming hot water tap to two different charities, New Hope and ONE YMCA. The two organisations support individuals who are homeless, or vulnerably-housed, in the Watford area.

New Hope has eight Watford-based accommodation services, with up to 61 beds available every night, including the Community Home, which offers short term accommodation and a sense of community for those in need. InSinkErator® has donated the 3N1 steaming hot water tap to the Community Home in an effort to save time and make life easier for the staff during busy periods.

Annette Davis, Manager of the Community Home, says: “In the Community Home a cup of tea is a tool for support. The new tap allows us to get on with the meaningful conversations quickly. Many of the discussions we have here are had in the kitchen over a hot drink.”

CARRY ON CARAVANNING WITH RINNAI HOT WATER – INSTANT, CONTINUOUS, LIMITLESS AND SENSIBLY ECONOMIC FOR EVERY TYPE OF COMMERCIAL SITE

Rinnai, the UK leader in hot water heating units and systems for all commercial and residential sites, has recently completed yet another installation at a caravan park and holiday multi-activity centre.

Rinnai HDC 1500e external unit, fuelled by LPG, was installed at a site in rural Herefordshire as part of regular upgrades on the complex. The hot water was for a very specific function – the Disabled, Laundry and Dog Wash rooms providing, and it needed to supply more than 940lt/hr at times of high demand. The unit has a maximum output of 54kW and weighs just 31kG

.Due to space and configuration constraints the Rinnai 1500e  unit was selected and installed neatly on an external façade and accessorized with a pipe cover box to deter any vandalism and provide weather protection. As this is a pre-manufactured unit, no additional flue or ancillaries required, aside from standard pipe and electrical connections. The installation was easily completed in less than a single day.

INSINKERATOR® ENCOURAGES THE USE OF PLASTIC ALTERNATIVES ON WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY

InSinkErator® is encouraging the use of re-fillable drinking bottles, instead of plastic bottles, on World Environment Day, 5th June 2018.

Today, 5th June, marks the 44th annual World Environment Day; a day designed to increase awareness of environmental issues and for action to be taken to protect the environment. This year’s World Environment Day theme is ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’, encouraging change with the message, ‘if you can’t re-use it, refuse it’.

Research conducted by the United Nations highlighted that plastic drinking bottles are the second most common single-use plastic found in the environment1. Plastic drinking bottles, along with food wrappers, plastic straws and take-away containers, are products of a throwaway culture, where plastic is treated as a disposable material, rather than a valuable resource1.

Man Nearly Loses His Legs After Mystery ‘Insect Bite’

A MAN was told he might need to have both legs amputated after suffering a mysterious ‘insect bite’ while on holiday in Spain.
Ron Harris, 74, was staying in a resort near Alicante with his wife Jacqueline, 70, when he noticed a deep wound halfway down the side of his leg below the knee.
When he returned to the UK, he immediately sought medical treatment from local doctors who were baffled as to the cause but suspected an insect bite. The wound was clearly infected, with symptoms subsequently spreading to Ron’s other leg and both feet. It got so bad that the skin was literally falling away.
The pain became so excruciating that Ron could barely walk or use the stairs and had a Stiltz home lift put in to help him access the upper level of his four-bedroom detached home in Gloucestershire. He also had to take 42 painkillers a day as well as bottles of morphine to help him deal with the pain.

OVER A HALF MILLION SHEETS SOLD SINCE 2011

SureCav Limited’s drive to help the environment continues with the news that since our adoption of the injection-moulding process in 2011, we have now exceeded sales of half a million sheets of SureCav! Just see what we have accomplished. Over 675 tonnes of 100% recycled plastic has been used to manufacture SureCav25 and SureCav50, replacing the equivalent of 2.7 million concrete blocks. That’s the equivalent of 50,000 tonnes of concrete that would take 2,500 lorries to deliver. The equivalent for SureCav would take just 77 loads!
