Mitsubishi Electric

Easy-order PV packs

A new, ready-to-go PV Pack has been developed to make installation of Photovoltaic power generation systems simpler. The range of PV packs is suitable for most roof types and will work in conjunction with any of the company’s PV modules.


Extending spirit level

The extendable spirit level enables measuring and levelling to be carried out simultaneously. Available in two sizes, the 106T level extends from either 183cm to 315cm, or from 213cm to 376cm.
Once extended, the strong eccentric clamp secures the level in its extended state.


Wood finishing oil

A deep penetrating, long term finish for all timber floor and wooden surfaces is achievable with the company’s oils. Fast curing, water and wear resistant, the oils protect wood from within whilst the range includes solutions for exterior and interior timber.


Multi-cutter accessories

The company has added a 3Max grout and mortar remover and additional accessories to its extensive range of tools for oscillating multi-cutter power tools. Using the Bosch universal adapter, they are said to fit all conventional multi-cutters.

Original Style

Traditional tiles

The company has recreated classic floor tiles of the Victorian era. Traditional clay and coloured stains are complemented by a myriad of possible designs. The tiles are also suitable for use with underfloor heating systems and can be installed in bathrooms and conservatories.



Three glove types are offered, with each designed for different workplace applications. The Soft Grip glove has tailored finger seams, Spandex backing and provides good knuckle protection. A Palm glove with additional padded cells provides protection and warmth. Finally, the Carpenter finger glove has cut-off tips on the forefinger, middle finger and thumb to give better grip and ‘feel’.
