Snickers’ new FLEXIWork trousers MyDaylight is a new app by VELUX that enables homeowners to design their own room or renovation project by selecting parameters such as fl oor dimensions, roof height and ceiling pitch. They can then customise further by adding windows, fl oor and wall fi nishes and the room’s location. After approximately ten minutes, they receive a digital simulation which can be viewed in 360 º or virtual reality, and gives a life-like recreation of the room and the changing effects of daylight inside. Grant Sneddon, daylight expert at VELUX, said: “Many people who are looking to reshape their home fi nd it diffi cult moving from imagination to concrete proposals. The app brings homeowners one step closer to the home they have envisioned, as the 360º and virtual reality visualisations make it both tangible and achievable.” The app is an opportunity for homeowners to experiment with different renovation options, and a mobile application means the service is available anywhere, anytime – thereby meeting the growing consumer trend for online customisation, browsing and shopping. www.velux.com New products Precision cutting and control with Hultafors Spring 2018 027 Available this spring, Snickers’ new Floorlayers Work Trousers and Knee Guard System are said to effectively deliver the ultimate solution for working safely and in comfort on your knees.
