RETIREMENT OF PAUL DENNEY - APRIL 2016

Friday 1st April 2016 saw the official retirement of Paul Denney our Logistics/Human Resources Manager. A quite fitting date as Paul brought not only many years of wealth and experience to the Company when he joined us in 1997, but a warm, friendly jovial manner which will be sadly missed. His door was always ‘open’ and over 19 years of service many employees, clients, suppliers and Co Directors benefited from his methodical, easy going but professional expertise.

Colleagues and friends gave him a fond farewell at an evening celebration party, capped by an ‘emotional’ thank you speech from the man himself. “Happy Retirement” Paul from everyone at Falcon Trunking and your may friends in the business world.

IBA TRADE SHOW ‘DARTS FOR DISCOUNTS’ - March 2016

As a Preferred Supplier to the IBA, we attended the Annual Trade Show & Gala Dinner. For the Exhibition ‘On the Day Promotion’ we invited existing and new clients to take part in what we called our ‘Darts for Discounts’ promotion. Combining, fun, skill and luck, clients threw ‘live darts’ to build an overall total score which in turn gave them an extra discount on orders that were placed on the day, or on their next order. Over 30 clients participated in the promotion, with the final total order value exceeding £25k. Both the daytime exhibition and subsequent evening Gala Dinner gave us a great opportunity to network with IBA members, renew old acquaintances and meet new prospects.

90 DEGREE ELBOW PIPE JOINTS- WE’VE GOT THEM COVERED - SEPTEMBER 2015

The APAC1 System range of accessories include a Flat Angle (APAC/FA) and this accessory will cover a variety of 90degree 10mm & 15mm pipe elbow joints. This is a very cost effective time saving accessory, easy to fit leaving a tidy pleasing finish and virtually maintenance free. Compare this with having to painstakingly  ‘mitre’ other plastic or wood products. The APAC Flat Angle compliments other similar time saving products in the range.

APAC SYSTEM INSTALLATION INSTRUCTION - JULY 2015

We have been asked by various organisations to provide a guideline set of ‘Installation Instructions’ for our Adjustable Plate and Cover (APAC) System. Whilst we can publish this along with our recommendations, we would point out that every situation of pipework fitting can vary based on the make up of the mounting surfaces and pipe materials being installed and this document acts purely as a ‘Guideline’ to fitting. Go to the dedicated Pipe Management page of this site and click on APAC System Installation Instructions for the document.

MORGAN LAMBERT GAS SAFETY CONFERENCE EXHIBITION - JUNE 2015

We took the opportunity to exhibit for the first time at Morgan Lamberts second annual Gas Safety Conference at Cranage Hall in Holmes Chapel. Morgan Lambert advise their Social Housing clients on Gas & Electrical safety requirements, and their client base is akin to our own contacts within the Social Housing refurbishment sector. Our stand focused on the ease of fitting and applications of both our Continuous Backing System and Adjustable Plate And Cover (APAC) System. We were pleased to make contact with both existing and new specialist heating contractors, Clerk of Works and team leaders of ‘in house’ Housing Association & Local Authority fitters. A wide range of other specialist product manufacturing organisations made for a lively event which concluded with an evening dinner and presentation of Awards for Excellence.

APAC2 THE SOLUTION TO COVER MULTI PIPEWORK - MAY 2015

Whilst we primarily designed APAC2 to house 22mm plastic pipework and fittings since it’s launch last year we have received feedback from Contractors who have found it useful to conceal a variety of other pipe sizes in both domestic and commercial applications. If you need to cover up to 3 x 15mm copper pipes or 15,22 & 28mm copper pipes then APAC2 will be useful to you. APAC15mm clips can be housed in the APAC2 backplate (APAC2/BP).

APAC covers Multi Pipework

NEW CONSULTATION SERVICE FOR SOCIAL HOUSING GAS MANAGERS & CONTRACTORS - APRIL 2015

At the request of this specialist market sector, we have extended the role of our Sales Representative for our Pipe Management products to include pre-arranged visits to Local Authority, Housing Association & Contractors involved in Social Housing heating refurbishment programmes. To help identify their requirements and offer possible solutions and alternative products we have designed an initial ‘Faxback’ Enquiry Form which can be completed and returned

PLASTIC PIPES APAC CROSSOVER TEE SOLUTION - March 2015

We have completed a recent profile amendment to our APAC 15mm Crossover Tee (APAC/XT). The adjustment will allow for all the leading manufacturers plastic fitting configurations making up a 10mm or 15mm pipe crossover to be covered by the APAC/XT. This cover conceals the fittings making for a very ‘tidy finish’.

THE DANGERS OF UNCOVERED HEATING PIPEWORK - February 2015

It was widely reported in the Plumbing and Heating Trade Journals of the possible dangers of leaving central heating pipework exposed in places where vulnerable groups of people reside.

Details can be found by following this link:

Care home fined for safety failings after death of resident due to burns caused by unprotected radiator pipes

APAC1 and APAC2 profiles can both be fitted retrospectively to existing fixed exposed pipework, thus offering a solution in help prevent scalding and burns. See ‘How to cover existing exposed pipework’ section in our Pipe Management brochure.

MOST CONSISTENT SUPPLIER AT IBA AWARDS - September 2014

The Independent Buyers Association celebrated its 21st anniversary at the 2014 Trade Show and Awards Dinner held at Whittlebury Hall Hotel in Northamptonshire on the 4th September 2014. Keeping up our tradition of receiving a string of accolades over the years this years award of ‘Most Consistent Supplier’ was in many ways the most pleasing for Falcon MD Kinburn Bargh. To maintain a high standard of service throughout the course of a trading year is testimony to our hard working staff and I was delighted to accept the award on their behalf.

‘VISIT TO GAS MANAGERS SERVICE’ NOW AVAILABLE - August 2014

As a direct result of attending the Gas Safety Conference, we had multiple requests to offer both small sample packs and a consultation service on the practical aspects of using our Pipe Management products.  It would seem that in many cases Local Authorities and Housing Associations haven’t reviewed their surface mounted central heating pipework specification for a number of years, and traditional ‘boxing in’ using wood and the services of a joiner is still quite prevalent, time consuming and expensive. If you would like to see samples or  meet with our representative to discuss how amodern PVCu trunking system can save time, energy and money and still give you a simple method of concealing unsightly pipework, then please contact the Sales Team. sales@falcontrunking.co.uk

GLASGOW CONTRACT STAYS ON SCHEDULE WITH NEW APAC20 BESPOKE CLIP - july 2014

When we received a request from a major contractor in Glasgow to produce a dedicated 20mm pipeclip that would be compatible with the APAC1 & APAC2 System, the Falcon manufacturing team really pulled out all of the stops. Design and modifications to the machine tool were commissioned with prototype clips produced and trialled on site, in record time. The contract was able to commence on the allocated date and is well on the way to be completed on schedule. Well done to all involved. For this and further details of the full APAC System product range contact our Sales Team.

SUCCESSFUL GAS SAFETY CONFERENCE 2014 - JUNE 2014

We exhibited for the first time at the Gas Safety Conference which took place at The Belfry between Tues 29th- Wed 30th April 2014. Delegates had the opportunity to experience our products first hand, and learn how they can help their fitters and contractors in all aspects of their central heating refurbishment and maintenance programmes. Between the various speakers the stand was very busy and members took part in our ever popular ‘Guess the number of clips’ competition. The winner was Knowsley Housing Trust. Our representative answered question as far ranging as ‘fire rating’ on our trunking products to why we offer 3 methods of clip fixing on our APAC System. If you were unable to attend the event but would still like to see samples of either our Continuous Backing System or Adjustable Plate And Cover (APAC) System, please contact the Sales team.

COMING SOON TO A MERCHANT NEAR YOU – APAC2 – JANUARY 2014

Plans are at an advanced stage to release in the very near future a further development to our existing Adjustable Plate And Cover (APAC) System. Working to the same principle as the APAC1 System in terms of a backplate fixing mechanism for the clips and trunking, APAC2 will cover two 22mm plastic pipes and the larger 22mm plastic fittings. Contractors will also have the options of covering surface mounted pipework taking variations of 10mm, 15mm and 22mm copper and plastic pipes within the System.

APAC SYSTEM. NOW 3 INTO 1 DOES GO - AUGUST 2013

As we continue to develop our Adjustable Plate And Cover System, the latest product which is now available is a 10mm reducer that fits inside the existing APAC15 clip effectively ‘converting’ it into a 10mm clip. This means that the APAC System can now cover not two but three sizes of pipe 10mm, 15mm and 22mm or, because of the flexibility and ease of interchanging the clips, permutations of any two or these three pipe sizes. The sales order Ref for the reducer is PCR10 and the pack quantity is 100.

MORE ACCESSORIES FOR APAC SYSTEM - June 2012

As the demand for the Adjustable Plate  And Cover (APAC) System continues to grow we have expanded the number of accessories by a further four  products. We now have available an Internal Angle  product code APAC/IA, External Angle  coded APAC/EA, 15mm Crossover Tee coded APAC/XT and a Straight Coupler for APAC1 coded APAC/SC.

The APAC is ideal for contract projects that need a fast fit method of covering either copper or plastic  pipework. As copper theft would appear to show no signs of abatement,  the use of plastic pipe is becoming more prevalent for Local Authorities and Housing Associations. The APAC System allows 15mm plastic couplers and elbows to be used within refurbishment or new build projects, and still be covered in a professional, discreet and cost effective manner.

PIPE SLEEVING – SIZE ADDITION AND ORDER RECODING - May 2012

With  the addition of a 32mm Pipe Sleeve to our range we have taken the opportunity to recode these three products.

The sizes and new order reference codes are as follows :

To protect Micro Bore Pipework order FSL20
To protect 15mm Bore Pipework order FSL25
To protect 22mm Bore Pipework order FSL32

Each size is supplied in 1 metre lengths with FSL20 & FSL25 packed in  25’s FSL32 is a pack of 10.

RETRO FIT FEATURE OF THE APAC SYSTEM - April 2012

One of the features of the New APAC System is its adaptability. If you want to cover existing 10mm or 15mm pipework, and there is a maximum spacing of the pipework (approx. 55mm) then follow the simple guidelines shown  to give a neat and tidy finish.

DON’T FORGET YOUR PIPE CLIPS’ - February 2012

As we continue to support our Pipe Management product brand with updated literature, it has become evident that our range of single and double pipe clips purpose made to compliment our Continuous Backing Trunking System (PTR Range) have been our ‘best kept secret’. Product Coded PTCL210, PTCL215, PTCL222 and PTCL228 they represent excellent value for money, with each pack quantity being the recommended minimum of three clips per 2.5 metre length of trunking. So next time you are looking to place your trunking order ‘ Don’t forget your pipe clips’.

PROFESSIONAL HEATING & PLUMBING INSTALLER - January 2012

The January 2012 edition of PHPI magazine, a free monthly publication to the trade, featured on page 61 under the heading NEW PRODUCTS our Adjustable Plate And Cover, APAC System.

‘FIRST UP’ FOR NEW APAC  SYSTEM - July 2011

St Helens based IPM were the first wholesaler to place an order for the new APAC System.

Having had confirmation of the competitive pricing he didn’t hesitate in placing an order. The order coincided with our daily van delivery rota to that location, and the product was on his shelves within 48 hours.
