Giacomini has entered the social-housing market with the launch of a neat interface unit for use with communal heating systems. It is described as providing all the benefits of a combi boiler without the combustion. These compact units (60 cm wide, 73 cm high and 21 cm deep) control and measure the consumption of heating and hot water in apartments and multi-use dwellings supply by communal heating plant. There is no need for hot-water storage.
Legrand has launched a range of wiring devices and home-automation systems that it says will change the market beyond recognition. The Arteor range combines cutting-edge style with state-of-the-art technology to appeal to interior designers, specifiers and systems integrators.
