Doors, Windows & Fittings VELUX® launches MyDaylight – the world’s first virtual reality app for renovation design The app enables homeowners to design their own room, visualising the real effect of daylight, with 360 0 view and virtual reality options. MyDaylight is a powerful new app by VELUX that enables homeowners to design their own room or renovation project by easily selecting parameters such as floor dimensions, roof height and ceiling pitch. They can then customise further by adding windows, floor and wall finishes, the room’s location, and more. After approximately ten minutes, they receive a digital simulation which can be viewed in 360 0 or virtual reality, and gives a life-like recreation of the room and the changing effects of daylight inside. www.velux.com +45 45 16 78 85 velux-int@velux.com Woodfoil Makes A Striking Finish for FrameXpress Simple solution for flood proofing doors Leading window, door and conservatory fabricator FrameXpress Ltd was recently commissioned to produce a variety of casement windows, doors and bifold doors in a striking wood foil finish for a private home set in a prime, much sought after location in Kent. The highest specifications were stipulated for the property which also needed to be sympathetic to the local surrounding area. With the rise in floods across the UK in recent years, MACO has looked to improve the locking systems in flood doors which then in turn helps the protection of water entering a property. The company is well recognised for providing only the highest standards in terms of choice, accreditations and security, which were key factors for the homeowners. For this project, Ian Davis Sales Manager at FrameXpress worked alongside the customer to ensure that the best in proven performance, sound insulation and security would be installed. For more details on the range visit www.frameXpress.co.uk With the use of our Multi Matic tilt and turn system elements, together with the MACO C-TS combined lock, has enabled us to innovate and develop a solution that offers additional perimeter locking. Coupled with the correct weather seals, the water egress is prevented. This system has been successfully tested to PAS1188-1:2014 flood protection products and building aperture products ensuring piece of mind to installers and homeowners.
