Both are available in 5 and 20 litre containers. Benefits: • Cures and seals concrete block paving in one application • Prevents sand loss from joints • Treats both block and joints in one application • UV light resistance • Unaffected by ice, water, most common chemicals • Inhibits growth of weed, lichen and moss • Hardwearing, durable, long lasting and prevents dusting of blocks www.fibregrid.com A smartphone-operated door lock which is proving a hit at IronmongeryDirect, a supplier of ironmongery to the trade, has just been shortlisted in the 2017 House Beautiful Awards for Best Smart Tech product.
