- About CDI
Next Tuesday we will be heading back down to London to set up and prepare for our next exhibition. An for this one we go back to the future!!
One of the very first trade shows we ever got involved in, back when we were known as Ian Larnach Associates, was “100% Detail”. This then evolved into it’s current incarnation called “100% Design”. The last time we attended this show was way back in 2007 when the Nokia 2610 was still the best thing ever and when Bumblebee and friend hit our screens for the first time in Transformers.
So as well as Nokia making a return this year and Tranformers also returning with “The Last Knight” we are also making a return to our roots by exhibiting back at 100% Design.
This show is being held at London’s Olympia and we will be up on the mezzanine level on stand D110.
Next week we will be exhibiting with all of our systems so we will have down with us:
Lewis Deck: including information on latest design jump with the system. We will have a wet room floor on view as well as the usual suspects of Lewis on various joist materials.
Op-Deck: Our insulated roof system capable of achieving 10m spans.
Max4: Reinforcement sheets for screed floors from 15mm thick.
FastSlab GF Renovation system: Along with information on it’s big brother the FastSlab Foundation system.
Lacomet FL: Lead Replacement material.
Hody: Trapezium shaped steel sheets for larger open spans.
We would love to see you down at the show. This years event runs from Tuesday 20th September to Saturday 23rd September. Times as below:
Wednesday 20th September 2017: 10.00 – 18.00
Thursday 21st September 2017: 10.00 – 21.00
(100% Design Late Night: 18.00 – 21.00)
Friday 22nd September 2017: 10.00 – 18.00
Saturday 23rd September 2017: 10.00 – 17.00
(Public permitted to attend)
For further information on the show please visit www.100percentdesign.co.uk. Here you will find everything you need to know about the show from how to get to Olympia (I didn’t know, I’ve never been before) right the way through to who will be guest speaking and information about the late night event on the 2nd day (Thursday) when we all have to stay on our feet right the way through till 9pm!!
Saying that the website does state “On second day of the show, 100% Design opens its doors until 9pm with an evening of music, drinks and networking“.
So if there are music and drinks available then it would be rude not to!
Ask CDI a Question
What are the Lewis Deck sheet sizes?A
Q: What sheet sizes are held in stock for delivery within a few days after order? A: We stock 2500mm and 1300mm sheets. These are all 630mm wide and 16mm deep. Deliveries are made via the pallet network directly to site. The smaller sheets are aimed at small bathroom renovation projects and can be supplied in small numbers via TNT. 2.5* and 1.3m sheets allow for the 100mm overlap to occur over a joist, with joist centres being either 300mm, 400mm, 600mm, 800mm*, 1200mm and 2400mm*. (*2.5m sheet only) For larger projects we are able to produce bespoke sheet sizes if required, please get in contact to discuss other options for sheet sizes.Q
Lacomet – How come it has no scrap value?A
Lacomet – How come it has no scrap value? Many of the projects that we get involved in starts with a phone call or email to us from someone researching replacing stolen leadwork. Many of these are old buildings, such as schools or churches, where this isn’t the first time that the lead has been stolen and they call us fed up with having to replace it again full in the knowledge that they will more than likely go through the same problem once more in the near future if they continue to use lead. One of the big benefits that Lacomet FL brings to a project is the fact that it has no scrap value and therefore the chances of it being stolen are massively reduced. Due to the 2 thin aluminium layers, and its five layer total construction, it is of no value to thieves. Lacomet can be recycled but the polyester based coating would need to be de-laminated first and the amount of recovered aluminum is then very low, in fact it would be easier and more profitable to collect empty drinks cans than to mess about stripping Lacomet down. We can also supply stickers that can be placed in strategic locations informing people that what is now on the roof is not lead and that it has no scrap value.
Why don't my Lewis sheets interlock like they do in the video?A
Q: Why don't my sheets interlock like they do in the video? A: The sheets have two sides (one printed, one plain), the dovetails on either side are different widths, it is then necessary to alternate the sheets print up and then print down.Q
Is this a question?A
If it is, this is an answer.
