Renewable energy products

  • Apricus solar water heaters use evacuated tube and heat pipe technology to absorb thermal energy from the sun and convert it into usable heat. The heat is normally absorbed by water, or a freeze-resistant water mix, which can then be used to supplement hot water heating, space heating and even space cooling via use of an absorption chiller or dessicant cooler technology.
  • Renshade perforated aluminium foil screens fitted inside windows can dramatically reduce room temperatures. The foil screen is simply cut to size using scissors then fixed with Velcro buttons. The manufacturer claims that the screens stop approximately 85% of all inward high temperature radiation.

Garden and compost

  • Aerobin is a technological breakthrough in home and garden waste management. It uses a patented "lung" or aeration core inside a sealed bin to promote aerobic break down of organic matter, which experts say is the preferable method to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Water related products


  • EcoVerta - is an incredibly simple yet amazingly effective water saving solution. In an average home approximately 10% or more of the total water consumed is lost whilst waiting for tapware to run hot.This water can now be saved without ongoing energy costs or associated greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Advanced Eco Technologies - revolutionary new EcoVerta design enables these unique systems to divert water at full mains pressure without the need for any external power. This enables the cold "hot" water, which would normally go down the drain, to be captured and diverted for re-use, into a storage tank or for direct distribution throughout the garden. All models are compatible with mains pressure water heating including solar, heat pump, storage heaters and continuous flow systems. Proudly Australian Made the EcoVerta range carries Watermark approval to AS1357.2, certification by both Good Environmental Choice Australia and the Smart Approved Watermark expert panel.
