Product Design Projects From the Design 4 Studio.
The Green Futures Initiative (Encore Cistern)
We worked along side the Green Futures Initiative to help design and develop their eco friendly water saving toilet cistern.
The world’s most environmentally friendly toilet cistern Encore is the only cistern to use air conditioning condensate to flush the toilet for free KEY BENEFITS • Uses a sustainable water source previously drained to waste • BREEAM and LEED qualifying – a first for cisterns • Can be installed in new builds or retrofitted • Provides an immediate payback
Timloc BUILDING PRODUCTS
We have worked on many projects with Timloc, including the Invisiweep nearly invisible weep vent for discharging water from external walls.
Adapt-Air the pre-assembled ducting to airbrick adapter set from Timloc that helps to meet Building Regulation Part F.
Rad-Seal Face Fix a face-fixed radiator pipe guide and seal designed to provide an air leakage barrier around the point of entry for through wall 10mm plastic radiator pipework and Rad-Seal Recessed the effective, easy, and quick radiator pipe guide and seal designed to provide an air leakage barrier around the point of entry for through wall 10mm plastic radiator pipework.
Drill Vent a product to let your walls breathe with the discreet cavity ventilator and drainage weep.
All the building products we have worked on come with detailed design briefs to follow as well as tight manufacturing tolerances to ensure product weights and cycle times are met for each moulding.
The wealth of knowledge we have on both designing and moulding/manufacturing plastic parts is key to the success of each design.
NHS PPE MASK DISPENSER
Working with the NHS during the Pandemic was a rewarding experience for the Design 4 team. We worked along side the NHS to develop and manufacture a secure PPE mask box suitable for hospital environments.
The face mask dispenser had to conform to the following standards
IPCP compliant stainless steel
Boxes are designed for mask dispensing
Dispenses one mask at a time
Reduces PPE mask box thefts
Can be cleaned with tristel fuse as per IPCP guidelines, which is PH neutral and therefore won’t rust
Sanitised hands before mask removal
Box of masks inserted from the side
Assembly inserted from the top and snaps into place
When box is empty it can only be removed by pressing latch from the inside (press base of carton) and sliding up.
Fits face mask boxes up to - 210mm x 100mm x 90mm
GOKART ELECTRIC GOLF TROLLEY
At design 4 our studio had the opportunity to work with GOKART on their electric golf kart.
