Developed to build business efficiencies, Isuzu’s new Servicepack X is the next stage in the company’s evolution.
It incorporates a clever storage unit, offering greater access to your tools than ever before. The doors open vertically, putting everything in easy reach, all at once.
There are various configuration packages, all ADR compliant and built on the sturdy backbone of the reliable NLR 45-150 platform.
The truck has 4500kg GVM – allowing it to be driven on a car licence – 110kW at 2800rpm, and 375Nm at 1600-2800rpm.
There’s plenty of capacity to handle urban, rural or worksite applications.
Whether it’s the result of a major flooding disaster or the usual instances of dirt and debris onsite, a wet and dry vacuum is a versatile tool for tackling clean-ups.
With the capacity to clean solid and liquid waste, from drains and spills to dust and scraps, DeWalt’s range offers durability thanks to its hardwearing polyurethane.
That’s why these wet and dry vacuums are light and easy to manoeuvre.
The range is available in various sizes – from the compact and portable 15L model to the 61L design, which features a powerful 1400W motor.
Caesarstone has released its first collection of porcelain surfaces. With 17 surfaces on offer, the range represents a huge leap in technology.
Each slab is produced from natural materials, such as clay, feldspar, quartz and natural oxides.
The surface is resistant to scratches, pressure and rupture, and withstands very high temperatures. In fact, hot objects can be placed directly on the surface.
With striking colouration and bold veins, the full range is available in both Honed and Ultra Rough finishes.
Its 1600x3200mm size means that larger, sweeping expanses of joint-free surfaces can be achieved.
With Daikin Australia’s new underfloor ducted system, built-in monitoring and control technology provides perfect safety.
The R32 Underfloor Ducted heating and cooling systems also utilises next-generation R32 refrigerant with lower global warming potential impact.
Safety and home comfort are priorities for Daikin, and this system incorporates a leak detector that continually monitors refrigerant levels.
In the unlikely event of a leak, its Refrigerant Control Strategy engages the Daikin Zone Controller to dissipate excess refrigerant by switching off the compressor, operating the indoor unit fan in fan-only mode and opening all zone dampers.
This ensures the system complies with AS 60335.2.40:2019 as well as eradicating any flammability hazards.
With 14 new additions to its Colour Collection, Laminex’s new Solid Colours, Woodgrains and AbsoluteMatte ranges all draw inspiration from Australia’s natural environment.
Each collection features a touch of black and reduced colour strength. Laminex’s new decors also include four highly saturated additions to its Living Pigments range.
‘Nature is a constant source of inspiration to us at Laminex,’ says Sacha Leagh-Murray, General Manager Sales and Marketing at Laminex.
‘Our new collection captures the wildly diverse palette of Australia’s natural landscape, taking cues from the rich ochre colours of the earth to the glistening blue shades of the ocean.’
In aggressive environments such as water frontages, industrial facilities or any application where corrosion becomes a major concern, PERMALITE® aluminium building products from Lysaght are the stand-out choice for long-term performance and peace of mind.
PERMALITE aluminium roofing, walling, structural and extrusions are shaped from marine-grade aluminium.
With a lighter weight, it’s ideal for aggressive and corrosive environments. Available in a choice of profiles and colours, it’s backed by a generous warranty of up to 40 years (conditions apply).
For builders of townhouses and duplexes, rainy conditions can cause costly delays due to mould forming on the party wall before roof stage.
Once mould has formed on interstitial structures, the wet surfaces need to dry out and the mould cleaned off before the structure can be enclosed.
This may take weeks. Siniat’s Interhome (low-rise) is a popular separating wall system that offers a solution to this problem.
Interhome contains a central fire barrier built between timber or steel house frames.
By using the combination of Siniat’s mould resistant Intershield in the central fire barrier and Multishield for the lamination of the fire barrier, builders can be assured of mould resistance during all stages of construction.
ABI Interiors is known for its dedication to high quality and expertise in plumbing hardware.

This improves your workflow by allowing you to continue moving ahead with your build while your clients deliberate over their tapware selections. The In-Wall Kit is installed first, during rough-in.
The Infiniti Technology runs across five refined styles and a selection of signature finishes.
