    Engineered for success: Preventing common issues in engineered timber flooring installation

    While engineered timber floors are much less susceptible to the issues commonly found with traditional solid timber flooring, without the right preparation, skills and experience, costly issues may arise during installation. Download this whitepaper to learn how to avoid installation issues, saving your projects significant time and money and ensuring you experience all the benefits that engineered timber flooring has to offer.


    High performance at high speed: A specifier's guide to selecting high speed doors

    Specifiers frequently have choices between standard roller shutters and high-speed roll doors. Both are reliable and efficient; however, they do not necessarily fulfil the same purposes. This whitepaper takes an in-depth look at the differences between standard and high-speed roller doors and provides a detailed overview of the considerations specifiers should take into account when choosing a high-performance roller door solution for their next project.


    Building design for sustainable homes & cities: The benefits of rainwater harvesting

    As water demand grows, so does the need for sustainable water services. The first step in integrated urban water management, rainwater harvesting has emerged as a feature of sustainable building design that every architect and specifier needs to understand. Download this whitepaper to see why rainwater harvesting systems are crucial to creating liveable, productive and resilient cities.


    Quiet building: Noise and vibration isolation in vibrant cities

    As building near transit corridors and above railways become viable options to relieve pressure on existing urban infrastructure, design and construction professionals need to better understand how to minimise structural vibrations that could adversely impact quality of life. Download this whitepaper to see why noise and vibration isolation are crucial elements in new building projects.


    Raising the safety floor: A guide to slip resistance in flooring specification

    Poor specification of flooring, especially unsustainable or insufficient slip resistance, is directly associated with the occurrence of fall incidents. It is imperative for architects, designers and specifiers to understand the factors that impact slip resistance and how flooring surfaces perform in real-life conditions. Download this whitepaper and see why sustainable safety flooring must be considered for demanding commercial environments and public spaces.


    Schools of the future: Designing for student and teacher health, wellbeing and performance

    Specifying comfortable, clean and durable floors is a key component to high quality school environments and can significantly improve learning and teaching effectiveness.
