Porous Pave provides a solution for water runoff, drainage, and improving water quality. This product enables developments to be undertaken in a sustainable manner by facilitating the most preferable destination for surface runoff which can keep soil cooler as well as allowing urban storm water to be treated and harvested for re-use.

Radiation Free Healthier Buildings

‘Radiation Protection’ – evidence-based technology to protect against modern environmental health burdens (electrosmog/EMF) and natural environmental influences that affect the regenerative capabilities of our bodies. GEOVITAL have developed active radiation protection technology and materials can be integrated into a building during construction to save a reactive upgrade (and additional labour) at a later stage.

ROPA 2 Part Window System

ROPA is a pre-fabricated, easy to install, two-part interlocking window system. It incorporates a patented ‘Enviro-seal’ which secures against the frame upon installation, isolating against drafts, dust and noise. With ROPA, reveals do not protrude beyond the internal frame, making running a straight edge quick and simple. This means carpenters can achieve a straight wall every time, while saving time and money.


To serve the industry’s aspiring requirements for architecturally impressive larger doors, TraXtar™ from Anthony Innovations is a window and door roller that allows greater freedom to build large doors that create a seamless transition between the outdoor and indoor environments. It reduces rolling resistance & operates smoothly & quietly providing the ultimate performance.
