Inva Stair Riser is a game changer @invalifts

The newly re-designed Inva Stair Riser is a game changer when it comes to incline stair lift design and innovation. The stair lift now comes with a graphic display panel which keeps the user up to date with the operation status and importantly also indicates if the stop button has been depressed or if the unit is not located on its charging points. Both of which are unnecessary and expensive reasons for breakdown call outs.

The new design also allows for coloured LED lighting to be added to both sides and across the top of the carriage adding improved individual adaption on the unit.


Always aiming to build the perfect online experience for its customers and partners, Vicaima, one of the largest European players in the production of sophisticated solutions for interior doors, wardrobes and panels, has just launched a new website, which aims to improve the ease of navigation for its users, providing spontaneous and differentiating interaction with all features and tools.  Yet another innovation, from a company which is continuously investing in a close, modern and intuitive digital footprint.

In response the recent Corona virus outbreak Managing Director at JIS Europe, Richard Thelwell, discusses their policy of stockholding and how it is even more relevant and impactful today.

“At JIS Europe our staff and customers wellbeing are of paramount and first importance to us, in light of that, we are following all government guidelines and have instituted further measures to further protect our staff. Whilst the advice remains to stay open we will do so, with necessary staff in place, and continue to send our rails out on a Next Working Day service and there will be no disruption to supply.  This is enabled by our longstanding policy of stockholding which means whatever the crisis may be, be it fires or theft within our factories, Brexit or the coronavirus today we are able to fulfil supply.  This results in not only further financial stability for ourselves but also our customers whose projects do not want to see any unnecessary further delays.”

Once considered the place for storing luggage, there’s now a host of products which can help you transform your loft space into an enviable, spacious and daylight-filled room. And there are some products in particular that deliver truly exceptional results.


A door closer is a mechanical device that reduces the physical burden of opening and shutting doors, and can be housed above, beneath or within the door unit. Door closers play a crucial role across many commercial buildings, yet despite this, many building owners remain unaware of their importance, which could be contributing to inadequate specification choices. Here, David Saxby, Senior Category Manager at IronmongeryDirect, highlights some of the key considerations for specifiers as well as some recommended solutions.

512/522 Streatham High Road is a new mixed-use development of storage and office space. Delta’s Director David J. Symes was delighted to have been involved with this prestigious project from concept which involved a super basement with a footprint of an impressive 1500m2 (wall surface) and 2500m2 (floor surface).


The company has matched a £4,096.38 raffle amount, so £8,192.76 will be donated to NHS Charities Together. Both winners chose to give forward, donating prizes to local NHS workers or holding their own fundraisers to raise additional donations.
