A professional finish


Flashband has been exclusively distributed locally through Kahn & Kahn for approximately 40 years. Flashband offers the same highly professional finish to sealing and flashing work that would be expected of an expert on a construction site.

The Flashband strips are easy to use and are available in a variety of sizes that reduce the need for any cutting. Sealing gutters, down pipes and chimneys and pipe vents is a task that can be accomplished easily and efficiently.

Each Flashband strip has an aluminium facing, backed with a pressure-sensitive sealing compound. This compound is protected by a special siliconised release paper which is removed before use. Once applied, it can be left to face all weather conditions without further attention.

Brilliant blade


An innovative new design makes Jaguar the first blade capable of achieving chip-free dry cutting of porcelain and ceramic tiles. It has been introduced locally by Diamond Products – a specialist in the manufacture, assembly and sale of diamond tools and equipment for industrial applications.

The trend of utilising hard porcelain tiles is a challenge for professional contractors such as plumbers, tilers and builders, who consume considerable amounts of water during the cutting process in order to avoid costly chipping. The unique and patented Jaguar blade segment design offers improved versatility of application, increased cutting speed and improved cooling to enable dry cutting on porcelain and ceramic tiles, in addition to granite, marble, travertine and artificial stone.

This modern shaped, self-contained macerating toilet is very efficient. It was designed with several considerations in mind such as limited space, water saving and for people with physical limitations requiring easy access to a toilet

Accurate detection


Utility location today is no longer a luxury; it is becoming a necessity. New legislation in many countries around the world, including South Africa, makes it mandatory for a property owner to establish site safety before excavation or demolition.

The Sewerin UT9000 uses a generated electromagnetic field to locate and mark the position of any potentially dangerous utilities on the excavation site. Electrical cables, metallic pipes, communication lines etc can be mapped accurately.

New features of the UT9000 include the ability to digitally estimate horizontal offset and depth of a utility, direction of current flow, remote control of the transmitter frequency, and Bluetooth GPS integration. The UT9000 also won a prestigious Red Dot honourable mention for its product design.
