Conservatory Land Is Anticipating An Increase In Demand For Bi-Fold Doors As Many Homeowners Start To Look Forward To Spring

David Bingham, Managing Director at Conservatory Land stated that “Besides fitting a conservatory, they are one of the best ways of adding value to the home, as well as making the garden a much more accessible and enjoyable area for the whole family,” and went on to say “In the last 12 months, bi-fold doors have become a must-have on many homes and we always recommend them to our customers who are fitting a conservatory.”

Sliding bi-fold doors have the advantage of providing full access to the garden or patio area, which means that on a warm summer’s day homeowners can literally open up their home to the sunshine, dramatically connecting the indoor and outdoor space. Bi-fold doors can replace an existing patio door in a house or form part of a new conservatory.

The bi-folds’ amazing flexibility is seen in the various fold options, which make it easy to adjust the doors, depending on how much fresh air you require. Opening up to the largest 6.5 metres wide, bi-fold doors are certain to create a beautifully practical living space and ensuring circulation of healthy fresh air throughout your home.

Conservatory Land uses the market leading Eurocell profile system to make the sliding bi-fold doors because it has the reputation as one of the best quality systems on the market. Conservatory Land also sources from Eurocell because it is a local company, based in Derbyshire that offers a full range of windows, conservatories and doors. Offering a full range means being able to provide customers a perfect colour between the windows, conservatory and bi-fold, which is a great way to create a real “wow factor”.

Homeowners that choose bi-fold doors from Conservatory Land have been immediately impressed by the practicality and stunning aesthetics of the product. Because every home is unique, bi-fold doors are available in a choice of sizes, colours and woodgrain finishes. This extensive range of styles means that bi-fold doors can be individually selected to complement both traditional and contemporary homes.

Exceeding the minimum requirement for construction, security, safety, weather-tightness and strength, bi-fold doors are a great way for families to enjoy their garden and patio areas – the wide open space they create makes it easy to both hear and see children in the garden. When fitted into a new conservatory, it provides a truly stunning addition to any home.

Conservatory Land offers a wide range of high performance glass to ensure that your new bi-fold door, conservatory or windows provide you with an efficient and easy to heat home.

Customers wishing to view its bi-fold door range, along with a wide selection of conservatories, will find a welcoming atmosphere in its new showroom on Old Mill Lane Industrial Estate, in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

Innovative Glow-In-Dark Signs Utilize Latest Photo Luminescent Technology To Replace Old Exit Signs, While Providing Building Owners An Eco-Friendly Alternative

Eco Exit Signs photo

Heading for the exit is now more energy efficient and eco-friendly with the new Glo Brite® Eco Exit™ signs available to owners of commercial buildings, stores, living centers, manufacturing sites and healthcare facilities.

Unlike the old lighted exit signs, the Eco Exit signs need no electricity, wiring, bulbs or battery backup to point the way out of a building during a blackout, smoky conditions or at night. The Eco Exit signs utilize the latest photo luminescent technology to absorb and store ambient light, becoming immediately visible in dark conditions from up to 50 feet away.

Eco Exit signs consume zero energy, have zero operating costs and zero maintenance and disposal costs, while reducing the carbon footprint of the facility. They also are a safer alternative to signs using radioactive tritium technology.

A building with 100 Glo Brite Eco Exit signs can save as much as $3,500 a year in energy cost and reduce air pollution by almost a half million pounds of carbon dioxide compared with electrical signs over the 25 year life expectancy of the product.

These innovative emergency signs are available in steel or plastic models and are easy to install. They use standard brackets and may be surface, flag or ceiling mounted in new or retrofit construction.

“These Eco Exit signs are a huge improvement over traditional exit signs,” stated Dan Ruminski, president of Martinson-Nicholls, Inc, Willoughby, OH, a master distributor of the product. “They are environmentally friendly, with cost and energy savings all in one maintenance-free product that provides immediate return on investment.”

Eco Exit signs are UL 924 listed and meet all current building codes and NFPA Life Safety Code 101 and OSHA requirements.

For more information on Glo Brite® Eco Exit™ signs, contact Dan Ruminski at Martinson-Nicholls, Inc., 800-876-1312 or visit the company’s website (

XHHW Wire Preferred by Many Electrical Contractors Verse THHN Wire

HHW, an electrical copper building wire, is proving to be a favorite over the more standard THHN building wire by many electrical contractors and installers.

XHHW stands for Cross-Linked High Heat Water Resistant Insulated Wire. Today’s XHHW is manufactured to XHHW-2 standard meaning it is rated in wet and dry environments up to 90C. XHHW is found both in stranded and solid constructions and various jacket colors.

THHN stands for Thermoplastic High Heat-resistant Nylon-coated. THHN is also found in both stranded and solid copper conductors but uses a nylon coating for mechanical and protection for gas and oil.

The key difference between the two building wires is XHHW utilizes cross-linked polyethylene (XPLE) and THHN uses a poly-vinyl chloride (PVC) as the insulation over the conductor. XHHW performs better in the low temperature environments and has a higher K Value, or better electrical properties.

“We continue to see more and more customers request XHHW over THHN now that copper prices have dropped again. XHHW has better current carrying capacity giving it the ability to withstand meltdown better, and even with its marginal price increase, many customers make it their choice over THNN,” remarked Bryce Huett, President of Distributor Wire & Cable in Denver, Colorado.

XHHW typically cost 10-20% more than THHN but that gap is closing as cross-linked polyethylene becomes more and more available. It is worth noting that the nylon coating on THHN wire makes it stiffer than its building wire counter part. Installers always prefer a more pliable product when trying to pull their runs throughout a structure.

Distributor Wire & Cable is a nationwide electrical wholesaler for all types of wire and cable including XHHW and THHN building wire. For more information on their products and services, call 888-439-2947 or visit
