Have you suffered from Frozen Pipes?


Leaking Water Pipe

Frozen water exerts thousands of pounds of pressure per square inch on a pipe and can burst it, causing flooding and major damage to your business. Extensive water damage can also occur as a result of frozen pipes in sprinkler systems during extended power outages in freezing weather.


Install insulation and heat trace tape connected to a reliable power source on parts of wet sprinkler system piping. This includes main lines coming up from underground passing through a wall as well as sprinkler branch lines. Please contact one of our sales team on 01 4614300 or for latest offers on frost protection tape.

Stiebel Eltron CFK5 Frost Protection Heater

Winter Under Control

With a heating output of 500 Watts, the small frost protection heaters are ideal for providing standard background heating in smaller rooms. In particular, water pipes are reliably protected against frost damage, subject to correct sizing. An integral overheating protection reliably prevents excessive temperatures and therefore ensures your safety. You select the required temperature at the temperature selector.





Advantages at a glance

  • Reliable protection against frost damage through automatic drainage after every actuation
  • Hygienically safe: No stagnation volume, no heated-up water
  • Always factory equipped with the mandatory specified protection unit combination
    (hose union anti-vacuum captive and anti-pollution check-valve) as per DIN/DVGW
  • Noise control tested as per DIN EN ISO 3822
  • Always safe as per DIN 1988 100, DIN EN 1717
  • Above-average drainage capacity of 40 l per minute at 1 bar flow pressure
  • Completely opened or closed with only 2 rotations
  • Certified as per test standard VP 648 DVGW, sound transmission class I
  • Fast, easy assembly

The operating principle

KEMPER FROSTI® is completely opened with only 2 revolutions. The drain housing is flooded. The hydrodynamic design of the valve achieves an above-average drainage capacity of over 40 l per minute (at 1 bar flow pressure). That means there is sufficient water supply even with long water hoses. The fully-automatic drainage after the stop process prevents the valve from freezing.

Water damages are prevented. Stagnation does not arise in a drained valve, so there is no germ growth.

Available now from Modern Plant Ltd; for more information please contact the sales team today at or call the Dublin office on 01 4614300

GROHE Blue® named Kitchen Innovation of the Year® 2015

Grohe Logo Blue


In the eyes of the customer, the “KitchenInnovation of the Year®” badge is trustworthy endorsement of the quality of a product. Any manufacturer of products in six different categories may take part in the competition. An independent panel of recognised, renowned experts and a poll of 1.500 consumers then assesses all entries in terms of user comfort, practical benefit, innovation content, design and sustainability to ensure a thorough, all-round assessment.

Grohe Blue Tap

The individual ratings are then condensed into a weighted verdict. GROHE Blue® was entitled “KitchenInnovation of the Year® 2015” in the “kitchen furniture and equipment” category and won the “Golden Award – Best of the Best” for the highest score within its category. Consumers especially valued the innovation, the design, the sustainability and the personal benefit of GROHE Blue®. The system supplies three different variants - sparkling, medium and still - of filtered and chilled water straight from a special kitchen faucet. This obviates the need for long, fuel-consuming trips to the supermarket as well as for carrying and storing heavy bottles.

Save water, energy and money with Grohe's Powerbox


Exclusive distributor for all Grohe Commercial products, Modern Plant recently introduced the Grohe Powerbox, an electronic faucet that generates its own electricity...

The Powerbox's simple design means it's ideal for washrooms in high traffic areas such as airports, hospitals and hotels to offices and public institutions. The new product's self-sustaining power model and low maintenance design also makes it perfect for projects where mains electricity is absent or unreliable; it also helps attain difficult to achieve green standards such as LEED, BREEAM and Estidama.

Just 60 seconds of the water running delivers and stores enough energy to power the mixer for 24 hours.

The Powerbox's simple design means it's ideal for washrooms in high traffic areas such as airports, hospitals and hotels to offices and public institutions. The new product's self-sustaining power model and low maintenance design also makes it perfect for projects where mains electricity is absent or unreliable; it also helps attain difficult to achieve green standards such as LEED, BREEAM and Estidama.

Grohe's technology uses the faucet's own water flow to drive a turbine, concealed in a small box installed below the basin. This converts the energy from the flowing water into storable electric energy which then powers the faucet's infrared function. Just 60 seconds of the water running delivers and stores enough energy to power the mixer for 24 hours. The electronic faucet only delivers the water required, thereby minimising waste. With seven possible settings, it can also be further tailored to meet the needs of the project and its users without wasting a drop.


The Powerbox is the most efficient power harvester in the business, with a storage capacity that allows 100 hours of use from just 260 seconds of water flowing. No energy from the mains is required to power the unit, which means no electricity bills to pay. No mains electricity will, of course, cut bills, but the design of the product will also save on running costs. The Powerbox operates maintenance-free for 10 years and is simple and fast to install. According to Modern Plant, all these benefits are also matched by design excellence. The Powerbox can be used with three different faucet styles – these include Grohe's Europlus E, Europlus Cosmopolitan E and the Cold water fitting Euroeco Cosmopolitan E.
