Caro FDS Collaborate with Local Architect to Subtly Protect Family Home from Damaging Floods

Once again Caro Flood Defence Systems demonstrated their flexibility and years of expertise by providing a “bespoke” flood solutions for a high end single family dwelling on the river banks of a property in Buckinghamshire.

As part of the planning consent, and to generally safeguard the property, Caro Flood Defence Systems were commissioned to provide flood barriers to five openings around the home, ranging from just under one metre wide and up to four-and-a-half metres wide. 
 
Caro, one of the UK’s leading Flood Defence manufacturers, collaborated with a local Architectural Practice to ensure that the design was as unobtrusive as possible so as not to diminish from the grandeur of this stunning property.  As part of this process, the ground inserts for the Caro Waterwall were adapted to suit limited floor depths, whilst the floor and surrounds were designed in such a way, that all components could be hidden from view when the flood defences are not required.

Why Caro Supports remain a go to product for paved areas

For over 30 years, the Caro Support system has remained one of the most economical and simple ways of laying paving on roof or terraced areas.
 
British-designed, manufactured and supplied worldwide since 1985, the Caro Support raises paving 15mm above the supporting surface and its 

Paving supportsintegral spacers ensure a constant 5mm gap between each slab.  This allows surface water to drain away immediately, leaving an “ever dry” paved area.


Should you need to increase the height of your paving, the Caro Support can also be “stacked” up to a maximum of 8 supports high (120mm) with its fully interlockable design.
 
For fine adjustment, the 2mm Levelling Shim is also available.  The Shim acts as a “packer” when there are tolerances in the slab or deck.

The Caro Support is sold in boxes of 140 and the Levelling Shim is sold in boxes of 100.

Sand cast stools are high success for artist Sam Lloyd

Having one of the most diverse and best equipped sand foundries in the UK made Maybrey Reliance an obvious choice for up and coming artist Sam Lloyd. Include his graduation from Kingston University, an institute with close ties to the Kent based foundry, and you have the perfect circumstances for creating a unique, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing stool worthy of Heal’s Discovers.

Sand Casting, UK foundrySam Lloyd graduated from Kingston in 2013 with a BA Hons in Product & Furniture Design and an ever growing list of awards. As part of Lloyd’s final major project, he was encouraged to break free of the studio environment and explore different manufacturing techniques. Maybrey Reliance work closely with the University to provide both design assistance and product manufacturing, enabling Lloyd to experiment with available techniques at the foundry and create the stool for Heal’s Discovers. The form of the stool top is the result of his experimentations with sheet materials and this successful design provided the best seat. Easy to assemble, the stools have a trio of fumed oak and oak legs that screw effortlessly into the seat; these are then supported by an aluminium brace also produced at Maybrey’s.
 
The aluminium seat and brace were manufactured using the sand casting process ‘to create a strong three dimensional stool top that can be cast in one piece' Lloyd explained. One mould produces one casting. Each half
of the mould (cope and drag) is packed with sand by hand and then left to harden.  Once both parts have hardened, the mould is put together and weights are added to the top to stop it exploding when the metal is poured.  Once the metal has set, it is then a case of breaking the casting from the mould and submerging the metal in water to strengthen it. The marks and imperfections that would normally render a casting useless are celebrated in Lloyds stools, as they cannot be replicated and make each individual stool top unique.
 Sand Casting, UK foundry
Shortlisted for the 100% Design Award @ New Designers 2013, the stool was quickly picked up by Heal’s Discovers and the two heights available have been a huge success, with only two items left in stock. Maybrey Reliance is proud of its design and innovation heritage and continues to both initiate and facilitate unique and ambitious projects. Working closely with University students and other artists encourages design ambition and creative exploration.
