Home Living : June 23rd 2009
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 23, 2009 From all angles The shutters ... will not warp, shrink, peel or fade, or need repainting » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING Luxaflex Newstyle polyresin shutters offer the traditional look of plantation-style shutters without the maintenance problems. The polyresin compound has many features that minimise the total cost and life-cycle impact on the environment compared with alternative materials, Luxaflex marketing manager Genevieve Marshall says. ''Polyresin is a colour-fast compound with UV stabilisers, designed with strength and durability in mind and is virtually maintenance-free,'' she says. The shutters are water-resistant and will not warp, shrink, peel or fade, or need repainting. They are ideal for humid environments, such as bathrooms and laundries, and external applications. Ms Marshall says Newstyle polyresin shutters can help improve the energy-efficiency of your home and provide long-lasting value. Completely adjustable, the shutters allow the homeowner to fully control the solar energy entering through windows and doors. They can be opened or closed in both directions and are available in three models -- hinged, hinged/bi-fold, or sliding -- and three colours -- vanilla, pearl and white.

Dodgy water storage can be deadly Poorly-installed or unstable water tanks filled from the recent rains could become death traps, Archicentre state manager Angus Kell says. ''People often don't realise the sheer weight involved in storing rainwater which weighs a tonne for every thousand litres,'' he says. ''It is not unusual to see a 2500-litre water tank on an old timber tank stand in some areas. ''This, combined with the tank quickly filling with rainfall, then weighing two-and-a-half tonnes, on a timber frame in softened earth, is a recipe for a disaster. ''Raised water tanks on timber structures require ongoing safety assessments to check for any deterioration of the timber or any sign of the tank starting to lean.'' A falling two-tonne tank of water could severely injure or kill a person, Mr Kell says. He says Archicentre's property inspectors are continually amazed at what some homeowners are using for water storage. These range from wheelie bins to homemade water tanks from steel containers. ''Home buyers should be mindful of poor water tank installation practices and be on the lookout for dodgy workmanship,'' Mr Kell says. ''Water tanks must be installed by a licensed plumber and homeowners should ensure that the tank is installed in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines.''
