    The year 2017 has been a highlight of the Good the Bad and the Ugly.

    We've listed a few of the significant and unusual events that have impacted us all.

    We started the new year with a deadly attack in Istanbul on New year's day. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack. And we witnessed Donald trump taking office as the POTUS (President Of The United States).

    We've witnesed Voyager 1 and 2 complete there mission and depart our solar system. We have seen the future of driving in driverless vehicles and the creation of humanoid robots in the making.

    In the lands now known as Syria and eastern Turkey ancient metalworkers would melt copper with tin to make bronze way back around 3000BC. By accident or by chance they also made brass. Easy to mistake, tin and zinc ore deposits have similar colour and properties.

    Around 20BC, metalworkers on the Mediterranean Sea were able to distinguish zinc ores from those containing tin and began blending zinc with copper to make brass coins and other items. Archaeology shows in about 300 A.D. the brass metalworking industry was flourishing in the lands of what is now Germany and The Netherlands.

    Wherever noise influences human activity, effective acoustic sealing is essential. Whether preserving the confidentiality of discussions within a private office or a doctor’s consulting room, or reducing noise from adjacent rooms in hotels, maintaining effective acoustic separation is paramount.

    Section F of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) covers Sound Transmission within buildings and includes a set of construction & performance requirements to ensure occupants do not suffer illness or loss of amenity as a result of unwanted sound transmission.

    Generally we do not have the will power to ignore everything that is going on around us, especially at home. That is why it is essential to keep your home office away from your house of distractions. Less distraction, the more work is achieved, the less time you need to work.

    Depending on the type of work you do and the amount of space you need it’s either dedicate a room for the office or create the space to contain your office. Adding walls and doors will definitely reduce distractions.

    No matter where you locate your home office, you will need cabientware and door handles that represent profesionalism and style for atmosphere and ethics.

  • FritsJurgens pivot systems
    Category : Door Hardware
    Date : 12/09/2017

    Made in the Netherlands, and brilliantly designed, System3 is unlike traditional pivots due to it being fully embedded in the door. There is no visible pivot hardware at the top or bottom of the door. An added benefit; there is nothing to rebate into the floor or ceiling. Saving significant time and money on installation.

    With no unsightly floor spring box to cut in the floor and no head unit to rebate into the ceiling, the FritsJurgens ‘System M’ put simply, is invisible; making it clean, stylish & significantly cheaper to install.

    This key aesthetic and design element is unique to the FritsJurgens systems and is no accident. All the FritsJurgens pivot systems have been designed with this key feature in mind.

    FritsJurgens has taken the best features from its range and created a completely new and improved model. ‘System M’ is suitable for a minimum 40mm thick door and includes a variable back check and soft close function; as well as an increase in guaranteed door closing weight, now up to 300kg.

    To successfully soundproof a door you need to add significant density and ensure all gaps are sealed. Using acoustic door seals will reduce noise transmission in residential, commercial and industrial door applications.

    A 1% opening around a door will allow up to 50% of the sound energy to pass through that opening.
