DesignBUILD Incubator celebrates champions of innovation in the built environment. Six companies are awarded with a free stand based on products they submitted to our panel of judges. See the six winning products below – each company is showcasing their innovations at DesignBUILD in the dedicated Incubator pavilion.
DesignBUILD Incubator returns in 2018, offering emerging businesses the opportunity to showcase their new, cutting-edge products and ideas directly to the industry.
FrogLine Horizontal Lifeline
SafetyLink’s FrogLine horizontal lifeline systems make traversing along a roof safely simple and easy, eliminating the need to disconnect from the line, the intermediate and corners are designed so shuttles can glide freely. With a low profile design, the system combines effortless energy absorbing capabilities into every intermediate, end and corner anchor.
Mechanical Chemical Modified Timber
Mechanical Chemical Modified Timber (Eco Wood) from Blue Sky Windows uses a revolutionary new processing method that provides structural strength of timber modified to the strength of steel. Eco Wood features a combination of mechanical and chemical treatment which allows it to control all qualities of the timber including colour, strength, fire and termite resistance.
Porous Pave and Porous Grate
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.
In partnership with Architectural Review
