BASEC is aware of instances in the market where two different cables are both being marketed as 6491B, when they are very different. The two types are H07Z-types according to BS EN 50525-3-41 and H07Z1-types according to BS EN 50525-3-31. If these cables are confused and the wrong cable is installed it could lead to serious faults. This warning also extends to distributors and wholesalers to make sure these cables are marketed correctly, and clearly showing their harmonised codes. Though both cable types are low smoke halogen free, there are two fundamental differences between the cables. H07Z has cross-linked insulation and a rated operating temperature of 90C. H07Z1 has thermoplastic insulation (not cross-linked), and has a lower rated operating temperature of 70C. Dr Jeremy Hodge, chief executive at BASEC explains: Only the H07Z cable type to BS EN 50525-3-41 may be described by the UK cable code 6491B, as set out in the UK annex to the BS EN specification. Although these two cables have similar harmonized codes they have different performance characteristics. For example, if H07Z1 cable were installed in a circuit designed for 90C operation, the insulation could melt and there could be dangerous faults causing short circuit, overheating, and possibly fire. Unfortunately, it could be quite an easy mistake to make if the cable is not correctly labelled in full and a contractor just asks for 6491B. These types of cable are commonly used in commercial and industrial premises where fire, smoke or fumes may be hazardous, as well as in closed systems, on light fittings, and inside appliances, switchgear and control gear particularly where low emissions of smoke and acid gas is required in case of burning. In most cases a 90C cable is specified and used. There may also be a difference in price which might make the incorrect cable seem good value, warned Dr. Hodge.

This is very reasonable and definitely worth taking very seriously due to the fact a ready built home of this size will have a selling price of up to £230,000. A self-build is definitely a challenge nevertheless with the appropriate advice and assistance, you don?t need to be bold. Taking up a self-build is just common sense. The govt backed National Self Build Association guarantees an even better access to financial resources, slicing the paperwork of house construction, greater numbers of building contractors employed on behalf of the self-build industry and trying to make extra land readily available for this role as well. The National Self Build Association help portal supports self-building and provides the guidance needed. There's help to obtain lower priced land in and around the uk as well as providing a network of helpful support for all those who take part in the self build scheme.

This car was supposed to be my daily driver when I bought it, Sergey reminisces. But, next thing he knew, his attention was directed toward the MR2. I sold the Integra and started to focus on this car a lot more, he says. Being the fourth MR2 chassis in his possession, Sergey had developed specific tastes as to what this one would be likeparticularly, the color. I had all the rare colors before but always wanted a white one. Once I bought a white one I loved the car, he says. But that appeal dissipated instantly just a month after having the car. I went to a huge local car meet and saw four other white MR2s, he says. And just like that the white color had lost its appeal. Given that the white was the original 20-year-old paint, Sergey decided that the time had come to change the color of the car. Unfortunately, the body shop that he took the car to did a terrible job. The coverage on the paint was awful. It had clearcoat drips everywhere and orange peel everywhere. After giving that same body shop a second chance to redo the car and getting the same basic result for the second time, Sergey was fed up and decided that the only way to get the paint to the level that he would be satisfied with, without spending an arm and a leg, would be to do it himself. So he turned to his friend Leo of Great Lakes Autobody, who not only patiently taught Sergey everything from welding to fiberglass to painting, he let him freely use shop space.

The Department for Energy and Climate Change has begun a public consultation on FITs, due to projected overspend on the scheme and partly because it is required to review subsidy schemes every three years by the European Commission. The scheme allows households to claim money from energy suppliers if they generate their own electricity through renewable sources, most popularly used through solar panels, but also through wind turbines. Under the scheme, households receive a set generation tariff for the electricity they generate, and also an export tariff for any extra units of energy they dont use, currently set at 4.77p per unit of electricity. The department says that should it consider that the scheme is unaffordable following the consultation, it will propose ending generation tariffs to new applicants as soon as legislatively possible, which could be January next year. The consultation document states: This consultation sets out proposals for a fundamental review of the FITs, intended in the short term to control scheme costs effectively. Among the options being considered that could build on or replace FITs are continuing FITs as an export tariff-only scheme, removing the ability of new installations under the scheme to extend their capacity, and capping installations under the scheme to 12,000. Julia Evans, Chief Executive, BSRIA, said: Ministers slashing these subsidies for solar panels is yet another sign that the Governments enthusiasm for green energy is waning. If implemented, such a step would remove virtually all incentive for home owners to install the panels and could mean the end of Britains solar power boom. In recent weeks, government has scrapped subsidies for onshore wind and commercial solar the two cheapest forms of clean energy, slashed the energy efficiency budget, abolished rules on zero carbon housing, lowered taxes on polluting firms and introduced a tax on clean energy and closed the 540m Green Deal, along with energy-saving materials being singled out as no longer qualifying for reduced-rate VAT. The government is giving me little confidence that it is taking the carbon reduction agenda seriously. FIT payments on domestic solar panels will also be cut by 192 a year for the typical household, according to calculations. Related Post

What?s the big deal with constructing our very own homes? Is it less costly to do it? So what problems should somebody new to the self-build market need to look out for?. When planning your new house make sure that you fit properly tested and approved fire doors. Although more expensive than a normal interior door, such doors offer a minimum of 30 minutes protection against the ingress of smoke, flames or fumes, thus giving you and your family the opportunity to escape from the burning property. You will find a massive range of fire doors and fire door accessories on this web site. According to the government housing minister, people defer heading down the self-build road on account that they seriously feel they don?t have adequate funds should reconsider. Constructing your home is not only cost effective, you will save money. A self-builder wanting a three to four bedroom home will need a spending budget of around £150,000. This is extremely plausible and definitely worth taking seriously for the reason that a ready built home of this size will currently have a sale price of about £230,000. A self-build may be a challenge however with the correct advice and help, you don?t need to be bold. Undertaking a self-build is sensible. Finding a good and reliable tradesman nowadays can be pretty difficult. No matter if you're after a builder, plumber or electrician unless you have a personal recommendation from someone that you trust you're working in the dark. It's always worth looking at sites such as RatedPeople.com who display feedback from actual customers. The following website has information on garage and garden electrics in Balham.

Whatever you are taking with you, this should be placed on a list. Decide what you don't want to take along and make plans for discarding, selling or donating these items. Before you move, you need to do the necessary repairs on your old home, and to do so, you should make a list of things that must be done. One of your biggest decisions will be whether or not you need to hire movers to help you with your move. If you feel that you have the time and capability, you can save quite a bit of money by conducting a DIY move. This will usually involve renting a truck. In some cases you may want to go with a smaller moving truck and ship some items on their own. Keep in mind that many states require special licenses for larger trucks. One of the ways you can know if you're dealing with a good rental company is by how much they help you with vehicle selection. If you take care of the house relocation by yourself you'll have to carry a large portion of the responsibility as well. A new house isn't the only thing you'll need if you plan to move somewhere else. It's also wise to take action and ensure that you have any vital services set up before you get there. If you have kids, for example, make sure you do plenty of research on local schools. This might have an impact on the neighborhood in which you end up choosing to live in.
If you don't want to lose specific items like valuable jewelry, documents, or heirlooms, you need to do something different with them. What you really should do is simply bring it with you and personally guard it. It shouldn't be with everything else that you're packing. Losing track of all of your valuable merchandise is something you want to avoid at all costs. Make sure to acquire any important documents that you might wish to take along with you. This embraces the medical records of each of your family members. This also embraces dental records and any from your vet, if you have a pet. Of course you can ask for medical records at a later time however it's smarter to have copies of them, perchance you have an emergency. The same holds true, when it comes to school records. If your child will be attending a new school in a different location, ask the old school if they can send the records at their earliest convenience.
A simple example of this would be forgetting to turn on the electricity before you arrive, or not having phone service set up so you can make some outgoing calls. Relocating, however, doesn't have to be traumatic, especially when you keep the following tips in mind. The further in advance you plan your relocation, the more smoothly everything will go. When last-minute decisions are made, typically things go wrong, which is why planning in advance is recommended. It is recommended that you start planning at least two months in advance before you move, especially if you are hiring a moving company. Whatever you are taking with you needs to be written out on a list. If there is anything that you really don't want, give it away, or sell it before you take the time to move it. It's important that you complete essential tasks, such as repairing or cleaning up your current residence before moving to the next one. It is up to you whether or not you go with a moving company or do the move all on your own. Do it yourself house relocations are the most economical in most situations where the move is simple. Renting a truck is generally a necessary step. In some cases you may want to go with a smaller moving truck and ship some items on their own. Make sure you don't rent anything for which you have no license to drive. One of the ways you can know if you're dealing with a good rental company is by how much they help you with vehicle selection.
The former England captain, 52, told BBC Sport he had been sent a "skeleton job description" of the role. Surrey director of cricket Stewart added: "It would be rude and wrong not to listen. "Then you just sit back and see if you are the right person for the job and whether the ECB thinks you are." The ECB created the new role leading the England team as part of a restructure which followed the departure in April of managing director Paul Downton. Stewart's fellow former England captains Michael Vaughan and Andrew Strauss have also expressed an interest in the position. Asked whether the job is appealing, Stewart said: "Potentially, if everything is flexible. But I am not going to sit here and say I want the job; I am going to do the job." Stewart, who played a record 133 Tests for England, said the ECB "needs to decide what the job is going to look like". He added: "They should then go to the person and say: 'We believe you are the right person for the job. Do you want it?'" Job descriptions have been sent by the ECB to a number of candidates, with an appointment expected to be made by the end of the summer. Also related to this story

And cars are not designed for life. Car dependency, Gertten says, is a disease for society. If youre dependent on having a car every day, you have lost your freedom. Its very sad. Most people are unhappy in traffic. The people who bike their cities, they become city-lovers. When youre in a car, you dont see the city, you are only watching the road. On a bike, you can see the sky, you can see the trees. People get to know their countries in a different way. The way he describes it, which comes across even more intensely in the film, is not so much a clash between bikes and cars as a battle of love and hate.

His career-best lifted the Bears to 435 despite Tim Bresnan bagging his first five-wicket haul in three years. Bresnan's 5-85 and James Middlebrook's 3-96 kept Yorkshire in the match, but spinner Jeetan Patel then removed openers Alex Lees and Will Rhodes. Yorkshire dipped to 88-3 before partially recovering to 128-3 at stumps The duel between last season's champions and runners-up is going the way of the latter so far with only Westwood, whose 196 came from 377 balls, with 25 fours, having passed 50. The left-hander's marathon effort finally ended when he fell lbw to off-spinner Middlebrook to provide the 37-year-old with his first wicket since rejoining Yorkshire as emergency spin-bowling cover - and his 50th in first-class cricket for his native county. Badly depleted by England calls and injuries, Yorkshire went into bat requiring 286 to avoid the follow on and reached 41 without loss before Patel trapped Alex Lees lbw for 19 in the last over before tea. Warwickshire then struck twice in seven balls as Will Rhodes (46) chipped Patel to mid-on. Boyd Rankin took the catch and then added a wicket with his second ball, but it was a controversial one as Cheteshwar Pujara was adjudged caught by wicketkeeper Peter McKay who failed to take the ball cleanly, before scooping it up at the second attempt. After conferring, the umpires sent Pujara on his way to loud boos from a section of the crowd.
