More and less choice from Allegion
With the modern looking square rose cap available on the entire Schlage 7000 Series range (photo above), the Schlage 9000 Series has been discontinued. The square rose caps can be purchased as an optional accessory, with caps available for both passage and privacy. The Schlage 7000 series is a range of solid stainless steel, European-inspired door hardware with a range of modern lever designs suitable for any interior design look.
Also new from Allegion is the Brio Open Bar Rail Timber 80 in antique bronze. Already popular in stainless steel and black finishes, the new antique bronze with its rich brown hues and golden undertones gives a warm and welcoming appearance and suits perfectly those wanting a Victorian-era or handmade feel.

A faster, more efficient screwdriver
Wiha’s first e-screwdriver, speedE, has an electric motor that assists with fastening screws up to 0.4 Nm before disengaging to ensure that material is protected. The screw can then be fixed by hand, like a conventional screwdriver, aided by an electric ratchet function.
Wiha’s speedEhelps users get things done at least twice as fast as with a conventional screwdriver, but is still comparable with normal screwdrivers in terms of size and weight.
You can use all the drives in the Wiha slimBit range with speedE, including Wiha’s VDE slimBits which are tested to 10,000 V AC, having been individually tested for up to 1,000V AC.
When fully charged, speedEcan fasten electrically up to 800 times and uses standard rechargeable batteries located inside the handle.
