See All The Leading Names At ELEX Sandown – 1st & 2nd November
Our final show of 2018 is nearly upon us and it promises to be our biggest and best effort yet. Here we take a look at seven stops you should be making on your way around the show.
TECHNICAL SEMINARS – STANDING ROOM ONLY
Keeping abreast of all the latest technical developments in a fast-paced industry is difficult at the best of times, so nows your chance to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and know-how available to you at ELEX. In addition to technical demonstrations available on many exhibitors’ stands, our dedicated seminar programme crucially offers the latest updates and amendments to the recently released 18th Edition regulations, delivered by experts in their field such as Darren Staniforth, Technical Development Manager for NICEIC and ELECSA (pictured), as well as advice on new profit opportunities and understanding emerging technologies. You couldn’t put a price on this sort of information, and it’s all FREE to ELEX visitors.
TAKE THE SMART LIGHTING CONTROL CHALLENGE
Visitors to this month’s ELEX event will get the last opportunity to take on the Hamilton 2018 Smart Lighting Control Challenge, held on Hamilton’s newly-designed stand. Can you beat last year’s winning time of 3 mins 41 seconds to wire a smart control unit? If so then you could win this year’s top prize – £1,000 worth of smart lighting control. Hamilton will also be showcasing its latest products, including the Elemento range of robust weatherproof wiring accessories, which recently received a design refresh and are perfectly suited to outdoor use. There’s also an addition to the Metalclad range, with 2.1A/1A dual USB double switched sockets now available. From Hamilton’s circuit protection range, the new Flush Mounting Kit will be on show, illustrating just how easy it is to install the Contour Consumer Unit within a wall cavity and sit flush with the wall. And, not to be missed, get a sneak peek at the soon-to-be-launched USB Type-A and USB Type-C range.
DEALS GALORE WITH C.K
C.K will be exhibiting at this month’s show and the stand promises to be better than ever, showcasing ‘brand new’ never seen before products. This includes an exciting new high performance C.K Work Light Range, with rechargeable inspection lights, a lightweight head torch and an innovative clam shell 30W site lamp, plus the C.K Magma Technician’s Wheeled Toolcase, designed for all terrain use and set to be a firm favourite with tradesmen whose work requires them to regularly transport a heavy toolkit.
On top of that, the C.K stand is offering some superb ‘exclusive’ show deals available on the day, such as a free carry case (worth £35) with every C.K Mighty Rod Pro 12m Cable rod set purchased. Or, the fantastic Dextro Glo Slimline Screwdriver Set, which delivers up to 30 minutes glow in the dark functionality, so you’ll never lose your screwdriver again.
The C.K team will be undertaking hands-on demonstrations of innovative products, such as the C.K Armourslice, which guarantees a perfect cut on SWA cable in half the time of traditional methods, and the C.K Automatic Wirestripper, a must-have for every toolbox, cutting and stripping T&E cable in a fraction of the time.
THREE BRANDS: ONE SHOW
Electrium, home to brands like Crabtree, Wylex and Volex Accessories, will be on hand at the show this month to ensure visitors get the lowdown on the latest IET wiring regulations as well as talking about the new product innovations in the industry.
The Crabtree team will be exhibiting its range of consumer units, wiring accessories and three phase circuit protection systems. Additionally, the Wylex team will be showcasing elements of its complete range of domestic, commercial and industrial circuit protection devices, including AFDDs and SPDs. They’ll also give visitors a chance to pay close attention to the practical requirements of the contractor, such as understanding regulations and installation requirements – for example recent changes to the 18th Edition.
PUT THE LATEST MFT TO THE TEST
Megger UK will be exhibiting two innovative new instruments that are of special interest to electrical contractors at this year’s ELEX Show. The new MFT1741 multifunction installation tester incorporates ground-breaking non-trip loop impedance measurement technology while the DCM305E Earth leakage clampmeter makes it easy for users to detect and deal with earth leakage problems. Live demonstrations of these exciting new instruments will be offered throughout the exhibition and Megger representatives will be on hand to answer any specific questions visitors might have.
In addition to the MFT1741 and the DCM305E, the Megger stand will also feature many other instruments from the company’s range of leading products for electrical contractors. The stand personnel will be pleased to answer questions about these and to provide expert advice on all aspects of electrical installation testing.
SEE THE LIGHT WITH SAXBY
Saxby Lighting will be going out with a bang at this year’s final ELEX show. The company’s new stand has caused quite the buzz and will be displaying a range of best-sellers, with everything from commercial to exterior light fittings.
Attendees will be able to check out their latest products as well as finding out all the technical gossip on ranges that now feature Colour Changing Technology (CCT) and various lighting sensors. These products include the energy efficient, high lumen output Sirio panels, as well the highly popular, compact and functional ShieldECO downlight.
If all that wasn’t enough, Saxby Lighting will have also have plenty of freebies for you to take away, including trolley tokens and lightbulb shaped stress balls. There’s also a competition over the two days where you could be in with a chance of winning a Bosch cordless drill.
SUPER ROD SADDLES UP
Super Rod is hoping to be a favourite with visitors to ELEX Sandown Park with great value ‘show only’ deals that are sure to be a winner with installers.
The company will be showcasing its range of innovative cable routing products and other time-saving tools alongside the latest hand tools and gadgets from premier US tools manufacturer, Klein Tools. Visitors to the stand can get hands-on with the products, and with many on offer at special discounted prices, installers can also bag themselves some high quality tools at a fraction of the retail cost.
