Grayson’s going GREEN(ER)

Grayson’s going GREEN(ER)

Introducing the 100% recyclable mortar board

Did you know that the Construction, Demolition, and Excavation (CDE) industry is responsible for 59% of all waste generated here in the UK?

And of the 119 million tonnes of construction waste heading for UK landfills this year alone, hundreds of tonnes will be made up of single-use timber mortar boards.

Here at Grayson, we want to help build a GREENER and more sustainable construction industry, and what better place to start than by introducing the most environmentally friendly mortar board on the market…

 

Now FREE with any brickwork sundry or consumable stock order*!

Grayson Green

A simple concept, re-imagined

Besides the environmental benefits, we wanted to offer our customers a mortar board designed specifically for its intended purpose.

That’s why the Aluminium Mortar G Board has –

  • No sharp edges or corners, which means no splinters
  • Raised edges for mortar retention
  • Integrated carry handle and storage hook for ease

It is also –

  • Non-combustible and shatterproof
  • Bright lime green to limit trip hazards
  • Independently tested
  • Used and trusted by the UK’s largest contractors

 

And, perhaps best of all, the recycled aluminium material doesn’t suck water from mortar, meaning you’re less likely to waste dried-out mortar.

 

 

If you would like to help us develop these early prototype products, contact your account manager today on 08448 50 40 50.

We will happily let you try one for FREE with any brickwork sundry or consumable stock order*.

Grayson (GB) Ltd Launch New Revolutionary Type 1 Wall Tie

Grayson (GB) Ltd Launch New Revolutionary Type 1 Wall Tie

Grayson (GB) Ltd are launching an innovative new tie that is an ultra-safe 2-in-1 cavity tie and movement tie. The tie boasts a range of new features to make this the most advanced wall tie on the market.

One of the main safety features is that the rounded edges of the tie are smooth to touch compared to other ties on the market. Another safety feature is the smoother underside to the holes without a cheese-grater effect.

The low profile embedment ends provides a number of additional benefits. Firstly, it allows other products like bed joint reinforcement or mesh to be placed in the cavity at the same time. The main benefit of the flat ends are that the 200mm and 225mm are fully debondable so the cavity tie can be transformed into a movement tie – just add a debonding sleeve onto one end of the tie.

The 2-in-1 benefits of this product have space saving advantages on site because one tie can be used for 2 applications. There is also less product wastage because leftover ties can be transferred to different jobs.

New Tie embedment

Another great feature of the tie is the embedment markings. There is a line marked at 62.5mm which is the recommended embedment of a tie. This feature was suggested in the Cole report after the Scottish School failures. The embedment markings allow checks to be carried out to ensure the ties are installed correctly, which provides benefit to all.

Our new 2000 Range Tie is a Type 1 Cavity Tie conforming to PD6697. It is Class A1 Fire Rated Stainless Steel which makes it ideal for non-combustible cavity requirements. The advanced contours of the new tie provide advanced moisture dissipation.

The 2000 Range Tie is now available in lengths of 325mm and 350mm as standard, without the need to place a special order.

The new tie is now available. To be the first to get the new tie, contact Grayson on 08448 50 40 50.

Stainless Steel Weep Hole Guard Now Available

Stainless Steel Weep Hole Guard Now Available

With the continually increasing importance of fire safe products, we are always working with our strong supplier network to find products that meet current requirements.

We now have a stainless steel weep available to meet current demand in the industry. The December 2018 amendment to Approved Document B: Fire Safety of the building regulations prohibits the use of combustible materials in residential buildings over 18 metres.

Guidance taken from the NHBC Standards Technical Requirement 3 advise that stainless steel is a suitable materials because it is classified as A1 non-combustible, therefore meeting the requirements of the NHBC and the amendment to building regulations.

Weep guard protects drainage holes

The holes in the guard allow ventilation and allow water to exit, but are small enough to prevent rodents and insects entering the cavity.

Made from stainless steel

Meets new building regulation requirements for non-combustible products within cavity walls.

No tools required for installation

Simply push the guard into the drainage holes.

Can be cut down on site

The weep guards are made to a standard size of 6mm, however if the drainage hole is shorter than this then the guard can be easily cut on site.

How does it work?

Coronavirus

Grayson is continually monitoring both government advice and the wider situation in the industry so that we may anticipate and mitigate any potential issues.

We have thus far implemented all advice given by HMG.

We have provided information from NHS to our team members and have put additional measures in place at all our offices to minimise risk to our employees.

The business typically has a significant stock holding on all lines, and generally holds three months stock on fast moving products. It also has multiple branches that the business can operate from.

Nearly all our products are from UK manufacturers.

Currently all our suppliers are confident in supply, but they too are monitoring the situation.

We are in the process of implementing a robust plan should staff or the wider business have to isolate.
