Product Launch - April 2017

Friday, 7 April 2017 15:13:32 Europe/London

New Product Launches!

 

Here at STS, we're always developing new ways of doing things to bring you new and innovative products.This month sees the launch of two new products which are an improvement on some old ones. 

 

MegaTank Kit

Our new MegaTank Kit is unlike anything currently on the market. Our revolutionary BlueTank membrane is a one-coat tanking membrane which dries in approximately two hours. This dramatically decreases installation time as there is no waiting period between coats. Mega Tank Kit

The Tanking Primer contains quartz particles for improved adhesion, and is ready to receive the BlueTank membrane when touch dry.
The kit comes with a roll of waterproof tape with a split back for sealing the edges of the tray and bedding into corners. 

MegaTank is an 8m2 kit and is available from 18th April.

 

 

Torx Screws

Torx Screws were developed as we have listened to feedback about our NoMorePly screws, and how they need improving. 

Torx ScrewsThe Torx screws are easier to use because they stay on the drill better and stay locked in until the screw is fully driven in.  This makes it a better way of getting the screw absolutely flush with the board with no raised head.  Each box comes with a Torx drill bit so no tradesperson has to worry about not having a Torx bit currently.  

The Torx Screws ara available in boxes of 50s and 200s, in both 25mm and 38mm and are available to purchase now

NMBS Exhibition Roundup

Thursday, 6 April 2017 16:26:24 Europe/London

NMBS Exhibition 2017 Roundup



On 5th April 2017, a team of Navy-and-White-clad people armed with boxes of lindt chocolate and two rubber ducks descended on the NMBS CollageRICOH Arena in Coventry for the NMBS Exhibition. At 8:45am, the doors opened and the day began, with merchant members flooding the hall in no time at all. 
There were some really awesome stands at the exhibition - Ox had sand sculptures, Hitatchi were playing some great music all day and Dickies workwear had living mannequins (which were only moderately terrifying).


Our stand was consistently busy all day, with visitors from customers new and old. It was great to catch up with some of our current customers, putting a face to a name was a good experience for those who don't get to get out of the office much.
Vanessa spent some of the day chasing people around with chocolate in an effort to get them to speak to her, so she had the most conversations of any of our reps at the stand.

Our new MegaTank tanking kit and Torx Screws went down a treat, with orders received for both. More on those in a separate blog to come. 

We're really grateful to everyone who came to see us on our stand, you all helped to make a good day great. 

Roll on next year when we get to do it all again!

STS at the NMBS Exhibition 2017

Monday, 20 March 2017 14:39:05 Europe/London

STS at the 2017 NMBS Exhibition
STS will be attending the NMBS Exhibition at the Ricoh arena in Coventry on 5th April. Come see us on Stand 75!

The NMBS Exhibition is one of the biggest and best events on any merchant's calendar, and is always hugely attended by both merchants and A collage of the NMBS Exhibition and the NMBS Logosuppliers alike. The exhibition is one of a kind, where the emphasis is placed on trading with the attending merchants, who will be able to take advantage of on-the-day exclusive deals and additional rebates. Additionally, the chance for the merchant members to meet and interact with the suppliers is a very valuable experience and one that should make the trip to Coventry well worth the effort. 

Last year's exhibition was the most attended in its near fifty year history, with 906 merchant visitors and in excess of 250 NMBS suppliers appearing at the show. This year looks to be even better than that, with approximately 1200 merchant visitors registered to attend.

This year, STS will be attending the show, exhibiting on Stand 75. Our On-The-Spot Buy will be our MegaTank Tanking Kit, which is an easy to use 8m² system. It can be painted or tiled over and can be used in any wet area to completely waterproof your room.
STS will also be offering a 12.5% rebate on any orders placed on the stand, which is not to be sniffed at! 

STS is best known for NoMorePly, the fastest growing brand of fibre cement board in the UK. We manufacture and distribute a range of boarding and wetroom systems, plus tiling supplies including trims and tools. All our products are tried and tested to consistently outperform alternatives and all systems come woth lifetime guarantees for the user's complete peace of mind. 

Make sure you come see us at Stand 75 on 5th April to take advantage of our offers!

Ingram House, Covent Garden

On the 11th November, T4 Mechanical & Electrical contacted Specialist Tiling Supplies with a requirement for our 9mm NoMorePly to be installed in the luxurious renovation of Ingram House. 

This prestigious building was built circa. 1850, and is now being converted to include approx. 3000sq ft of office space and high-end luxury apartments to the upper four floors.

STS were able to deliver the goods to this Central London address within 30 minutes of the deadline stipulated which enabled the project to continue on schedule.

This impressive development will benefit from the superior features of NoMorePly, ensuring that the finely crafted interiors will retain their initial beauty.

 

STS will continue to deliver on your requirements without fail.
