  • Electrical materials including cable and cable management, wiring and accessories, circuit protection, heating and water heating, ventilation, safety detectors and thermostats, lamps and light fittings and accessories.
  • Building and timber materials including timber doors, sheet and timber materials, timber fencing, laminated wall panels, building materials and roofing materials.
  • Plumbing and heating materials including boilers, external and internal piping, water storage, sanitary ware, basins, and showers.
  • Trade materials including Power tools, general tools, ironmongery and paint and paint sundries.
  • Road maintenance materials including pedestrian safety barriers, drainage products, concrete products, line marking and anti-skid, bollards and verge markers, traffic management items, and miscellaneous road products.
