Our View on the Brexit Vote

There has been many things written and spoken about the UK’s economy since the Brexit vote last month and this uncertainty and unrest will certainly continue to dominate the headlines for the foreseeable future.

We have heard many stories saying how the pound has fallen to its lowest value for 31 years, the UK’s credit rating being lowered, financial markets crashing, millions being wiped off the value of some blue chip companies, quantitative easing policies kicking in, and a much rumoured interest cut from the Bank of England which didn’t materialise. The list goes on and on.

It’s practically impossible to predict the real affects the EU exit will have at this early stage and this scaremongering will do the country no good whatsoever and we could quickly talk ourselves into another recession if we’re not careful.
Keep calmHere at TLW | The Lightworks, we have adopted a positive approach and would like to reassure our customers that currently our prices will stay the same and it’s very much ‘business as usual.’

We have a commitment to provide a quality service to our customers and our pricing will remain at competitive levels throughout our product offering. However, to be totally honest and transparent, we can’t rule out a price increase in the future and this is something we will closely monitor to ensure our business model is not affected.

The country was given a voice and it has spoken. We can’t change the outcome of the Brexit vote so it’s time to look forward and focus on the future and look for new opportunities whilst our maintaining our current levels of business – let’s keep calm and carry on.

New PRO Filter System

PRO filter systemPando, the Spanish cooker hood and extractor manufacturer, has added an integrated filter system to its existing range of premium products.

The new PRO filter system is available in two different sizes (PRO 52 – 520mm and PRO 85 – 850mm) and will fit either a 600mm or 900mm kitchen unit. Bespoke units over 900mm are also available which covers more surface area than any other similar system that is currently on the market.

The PRO is compact in measurement in other areas and will fit perfectly into any kind of top unit and a depth of just 265mm is required for installation. The flexible unit also features an adaptable flue which allows a vertical or rear method of exit. A simple adaptation can be made by the installer once the desired method of extraction is finalised.

As with all their models, the unit benefits from the SEC System® which is an easy cleaning and sound proofing system that is unique to Pando.  The PRO also features the latest generation motor in the V.850 which has a maximum flow rate of 830m3/h when using ducting up to 8m in length.

The maze-style professional stainless steel filters have been designed to allow good levels of air flow to assist grease particles to condense. This process helps to keep the motor free from dirt to prolong its working life by sparing it from wear and tear.

Optional filters for hoods without an exterior exit are readily available on request. The active carbon filters are much more efficient, can be removed to be cleaned and are effective for up to three years.

PRO key features:

  • Stainless steel fascia
  • 850 SEC System® latest generation motor
  • Professional AISI 304 stainless steel filters
  • Two sizes available: 520mm (PRO 52) and 850mm (PRO 85)
  • Electronic controls with 4 speeds + last time
  • Micro-LED linear lighting
  • Automatic saturation filter detection system
  • Vertical or rear exit (Ø150mm)
  • Removable grease tray built into the filter base
  • Optional washable carbon filters for recirculation
