Christmas lunch for local Senior Citizens

Honiton Community College held their annual Christmas dinner for local Senior Citizens this week.

Due to popular demand the number of attendees increased 20% on last year’s event and looks as if it will increase again for the much anticipated 2014 dinner!

The local college is very much at the heart of the community and received great support for the event not only from the local media but many local companies also, including Nu-Heat.

The raffle raised just over £300 for the two nominated charities – The Royal British Legion and Devon Air Ambulance.
Further details of the event can be found at www.honitoncollege.devon.sch.uk

Nu-Heat wins Build It Awards with LoPro10

Nu-Heat is delighted to have won Best Plumbing Product with their LoPro10™ underfloor heating solution at the Build It Awards 2013.

The Build It Awards (in conjunction with Build It Magazine) celebrate all aspects of self build and renovation including completed projects, products, services and suppliers. The awards bring together architects, manufacturers and key industry figures in recognition of innovation and excellence in the custom home sector.

Why Build It love this product:

“This system is ideal for home improvers.  It solves the problem of installing UFH in renovation properties and is quick and easy to fit – as well as being cost effective.”

The biggest challenge to installing underfloor heating in an existing building is often height build-up. In response, Nu-Heat developed LoPro10™, a floating floor with just 15mm height build up and excellent thermal properties that can be fitted on top of the existing floor deck.

LoPro10™ is a composite gypsum construction with one-third less thermal mass than a screed floor, allowing it to heat up and cool down rapidly – making it more economical for retrofit properties and giving quick response times. Its low thermal resistance and high mass (15,5kg/m2) provide a high thermal output and solid feel underfoot.

The judges commented that “Nu-Heat won the category because LoPro10™ met a real customer need with a truly innovative product design and solution.”

Nu-Heat has over 60 floor constructions available including screed, floating, joisted and retrofit solutions; demonstrating their Product Development teams’ innovative thinking around floor constructions.

Employee Skydive!

 Nu-Heat employees Sarah Dean and Pete Bell took the skies this August to throw themselves out of a perfectly good aeroplane, all in aid of Bowel Cancer UK.

The pair jumped from 15,000 ft. and ‘enjoyed’ a full 60 seconds of free-fall at 120mph before settling into a ‘relaxing’ parachute ride back to the ground!

“The skydive was amazing; I would do it again now if I could!” says Sarah. 

“A huge thank you to those that kindly sponsored us; we really appreciate your generosity.” says Peter.

Sarah and Pete raised a fantastic £1,800 for Bowel Cancer UK.

Bowel Cancer UK aims to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer.
