Fire Doors to Protect you Property

Fire Doors to Protect you Property

Blacketts Doors offer a range of high quality Fire Doors from their Newcastle showroom. To put it simply, fire doors save lives and are specialist doors tested against the elements and purpose-built to withstand roaring fires for as long as possible. Fire doors include vital safety features and really can be the difference between life and death.

So what is a fire door? A fire door is a door with a fire-resistance rating (sometimes referred to as a fire protection rating for closures) used as part of a passive fire protection system to reduce the spread of fire and smoke between separate compartments of a structure and to enable safe egress from a building or structure or ship. For a private premises, it is advised to install fire doors where the risk is most imminent, for example the kitchen, or rooms which house lots of electrical devices. If your property is a new build, it should have been subject to regulations ensuring certain doors are fire doors – check this with the developer.

To view the range of fire doors available from Blacketts Doors, visit our DIY Services website or call 0191 2734073. We offer FREE advice and will be happy to do our best to help you.

DIY Retail Sales Improve in June

Retail Sales Improve in June
Compared with May 2017, the volume of retail sales increased by 0.6%, with non-food stores providing the main contribution, up 1.8%. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reports that warmer weather boosted clothing sales for retailers, however, household goods stores saw the biggest increase across all non-food retailers, with volumes up 3.3% for the month and a 2.7% rise the amount spent by consumers. Prices also held, with just a 0.3% drop in average store price.

‘Other stores’ within the non-food category, which includes carpet and floorcovering retailers, reported a 1.5% increase for June, with the average store price down 0.5% for the month, in line with the non-food stores category as a whole.

Average weekly spending online was £1.1 billion in June; an increase of 15.9% compared with June 2016. The amount spent online accounted for 16.2% of all retail spending, excluding automotive fuel, compared with 16.0% in May 2017

Online sales of household goods, saw the smallest year-on-year growth across the non-food store categories, up 8.7%. Department stores, meanwhile, reported a 15.6% year-on-year jump in internet sales, accounting for 14% of sales as a proportion of all retailing. Across all non-food store categories, online sales growth was +12.8% in June, accounting for 12% of all retailing.

In the three months to June 2017, the volume bought in the retail industry is estimated to have increased by 1.5%, with increases seen across all store types.

The growth for Q2 (Apr to June) 2017 follows a decline of 1.4% in Quarter 1 (Jan Mar) 2017, meaning we are broadly at the same level as at the start of 2017.

Commenting on today’s official retail figures, Office for National Statistics (ONS) senior statistician Kate Davies said: “Today’s retail sales figures show overall growth. A particularly warm June seems to have prompted strong sales in clothing, which has compensated for a decline in food and fuel sales for the month. “Looking at the quarterly data, the underlying trend, as suggested by the three-month on three-month movement is one of growth, following a fall in quarter 1, suggesting a relatively flat first half of 2017.”

Weather Impact on May Garden Centre Sales

Weather Impact on May Garden Centre Sales
Results of the Garden Centre Association’s (GCA) May Barometer of Trade showed that the weather was a big factor in sales during May (2017) and divided the country. Compared to the same month last year (2016) sales in the south were 9-13% down; the north fared better with sales down by 2%-6%.

“The weather played a big factor in our members’ May sales figures with, contrary to the norm, the north having better weather than the south,” said GCA chief executive Iain Wylie. “However, all of our members had a tough job trying to top the figures from May 2016 which was the highlight of last spring.”

Furniture and barbeque sales were -12.47%, gifts up 1.22% and hard landscaping -14.39%.

“After a buoyant start in May which included a bumper Bank Holiday weekend, the second week in May was a disaster,” said Cowell’s Garden Centre director Martin Cowell. “The daily average temperatures were 12-14 degrees, which certainly hampered sales, however, the last two weeks saw the weather improve and sales were flying again. We ended May -1% down on 2016 which considering the weather and record sales the previous year, we were very pleased with. It could have been much, much worse. Our top five performing departments in May were bedding at +6%, perennials +12%, shrubs +6%, garden lighting +88% and irrigation up +24%.”

Member garden centre sales showed an average overall decrease for the month of 4.64% and an average overall Year to Date increase of 6.4%.

The GCA Barometer of Trade reports are compiled using actual sales figures and provide an up-to-date trading position statement. They are made available mid-month following the end of the prior month after all member garden centres have submitted their results.

Brits Spend Less than 45 Mins on DIY tasks then Give Up

Brits Spend Less than 45 Mins on DIY tasks then Give Up
A new survey has revealed that British homeowners spend an average of 37 minutes and make three attempts at a DIY task before giving up on it.

British homeowners spend just 37 minutes on doomed DIY tasks before giving up, according to a new study The survey, by BuyMetalOnline.co.uk, revealed that 62% of the population have tried and failed at a DIY household task in the last 12 months.

Of 2,000 UK homeowners, 78% said they would try to fix their household DIY problem before calling in a professional, with 32% attempting their own repairs to save money, and 27% doing so to save time. Britons listed: building flat pack furniture (68%), painting (56%), putting up a shelf (38%), wiring a socket (31%), and fixing a leaking tap (26%) among the top five DIY tasks they struggle to tackle. As a result, the top five trades Britons turn to in times of need included; electrical (59%), decorating (52%), plumbing (31%), building/construction (29%), and joinery (23%).

BuyMetalOnline.co.uk managing director Sara Halman said; “It seems the art of DIY is dying out among the British population, with more recent generations being able to turn their hand to technical computer-based problems as opposed to hands-on DIY tasks.” “Attempting to fix the problem yourself is one way to save money however if the job is hazardous or beyond your skill set, it is best handled by a trained and qualified professional.

There is no shame in turning to a professional to ensure the job is done properly and to the highest safety standards.” Young homeowners, those aged 25-34 called out a tradesperson five time on average in the past 12 months, compared to those aged 55-64 who did so just once.

Those in Newcastle admitted to the highest number of professional help call outs, with an average of four call outs to a trades person in the past 12 months, while those in Edinburgh made an average of two.
