Twin brothers uncanny record

• By Julia Evans

THEY MAY not be identical

but twins Nant and Nont

Prachuabmoh’s recordbreaking

triple jump distance

was.

The year 10 students wrote

themselves into the Christ’s

College record books during

the school’s athletics day – in

the most uncanny way.

At the end of a titanic battle,

the twins shared the contest

when they jumped exactly the

same distance on their third

and final jump,

They broke the existing

under-14 record by 42cm with

their 10.84m. It was a tit-for-tat

battle to the final jump.

Nant’s first jump broke the

school record of 10.42m set in

2004. Then Nont approached

the pit, and hopped, stepped

and jumped his way to break

the record his brother just set.

Bid to

save

bus

routes

heats up

• By Julia Evans

BUS USERS are rising up against

plans to cut services.

Nor’West News has received

a number of letters from

people angry at Environment

Canterbury’s move to cut two

routes in Papanui, which is part

a major shake-up of bus services

across Christchurch.

ECan wants to cut six routes,

including the 107 Styx Mill

to Northlands and the 108

Casebrook to Northlands, to

plug a $4 million shortfall in its

budget.

The public is being given the

opportunity to make submissions

to ECan about the cuts on its

website until March 26, before a

final decision is made.

Judy Broadbent wrote saying

she had moved from Redwood to

Casebrook in a bid to be closer to

a bus route as she cannot drive.

Fellow Casebrook resident

Karen Ravenwood said she has to

catch several buses to get to work,

including the 108. Without it, she

will be forced to take her car.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the editor’s desk

I’VE SEEN some intriguing sporting

records over the years, but the one we

have on page 1 would be among the most

remarkable.

Twin brothers going toe-to-toe, not in

the boxing ring, but in the triple jump.

Nant and Nont Prachuabmoh beat each other’s newly set record

at Christ’s College in two jumps before landing incredibly

at the same distance on their third.

The twins are competitive in many aspects and finishing

equal was not the ideal outcome for either. It will probably spur

them on to great things in life, though.

More activity this week over Environment Canterbury’s plan

to scrap bus routes (see page 1). The proof though will be in

how many people actually make submissions to ECan on the

issue. – Barry Clarke

Intersection review due in May

• By Julia Evans

THE OUTCOME of an

independent review of the

Glandovey and Idris Rds

intersection may be known in

May.

City council manager

planning and delivery transport

Lynette Ellis said a report on the

intersection will be sent back

to the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board.

“The results and analysis

of the work undertaken will

be collated into a report to

the community board. This

is expected to be delivered in

May,” she said.

Ms Ellis said a detailed time

line for the work could not

be given as it was being done

independently not in house by

the city council.

Last week, Nor’West News

reported the city council

had appointed a consultant

to “provide an independent

review/opinion” of the

intersection.

It is part of an ongoing saga

between the city council,

community board, and the

Glandovey, Idris and Straven

Residents’ Association,

which has been trying to

improve pedestrian and

cyclist safety in the area.

The association also wants

restrictions on heavy trucks.

As well as a review, the city

council has commissioned

traffic modelling to forecast

the effect of any changes to the

intersection and restrictions

including some proposed for

heavy vehicles could have on

the wider network and a vehicle

count.

“The additional tube and

camera traffic counts has been

completed and we are awaiting

the information from the

contractor,” Ms Ellis said.

A camera has also been

installed above the intersection

to record traffic “turning

motion” after the residents

found heavy vehicles could

not navigate the intersection

without cutting into other

lanes.

spokesman James Wilding

said the city council had

undertaken some remedial

work by widening the cycleway,

realigning the angle and

moving two vehicle lanes by

about a metre and repainting

cycle lane symbols.

He said the group “thanked”

the city council for that work,

which it did “in advance” of

commissioning the current

Bid to save bus routes

•From page 1

Willowbank Wildlife Reserve

in Northwood is also angry about

the cuts, saying it will be isolated

from public transport as the 107

bus is the only route that goes

past the park.

General manager Kirsty Willis

is pleading with ECan to reconsider.

A local resident as well, Ms

Willis said there is no bus for her

son to be able to

get to high school.

Northwood resident

Doug Soper

agreed. His son CUTS: Two Papanui bus services are among six from across

uses the bus to get the city that may be cut in Environment Canterbury’s draft Long

to Burnside High. Term Plan.

Mike

Davidson

He does not want

to see ECan cut the

“essential” service.

City councillors

Mike Davidson and Sara

Templeton have shared previous

Nor’West News articles about the

cuts on their Facebook pages.

Both Cr Davidson and Cr Templeton

have called on residents

from around the city to submit

to ECan and oppose cutting the

routes, saying bus services are a

vital community service.

“In my ward I have a lot of

elderly people ringing me up

saying they’re struggling to use

the bus system as it is, that’s

only going to get worse,”

Cr Davidson said. He said all

six routes serviced otherwise

“isolated” areas, such as Northwood

and Casebrook, as well as

Prestons and New Brighton.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board is looking to comment

FAST FACTS

•About 13.4 million individual

trip journeys are taken per

year on buses through

greater Christchurch.

•The Orbiter, which goes

past Northlands Shopping

Centre, accounts for 17.11

per cent of bus travel with

as part of the city council’s submission

on the ECan draft Long

Term Plan regarding its concern

over the cuts. ECan’s senior

Gibbon said at this stage there are

no alternative services proposed.

2.3 million trips a year.

•In the 2016/17 financial

year, 63,316 trips were taken

on route 107 and 47,348 trips

on route 108.

•The average number of

people on each route 107

trip was less than four, and

on route 108 less than three.

Nor’West News readers

respond to bus services

which could be cut

in Papanui as part of

Environment Canterbury’s

draft Long Term Plan

Willowbank Wildlife

Reserve general manager

Kirsty Willis – I would like

to voice Willowbank’s concern

over the possible loss of bus

107 from service. This bus is

used by our customers, staff

and volunteers.

It is the only

cost-effective

means of getting

to Willowbank via

public transport.

It costs in excess

of $40 to taxi

from town, which

is an incredibly

embarrassing

reflection on

Christchurch for our tourists.

On a personal note, my son

now uses the 107 to get home

from high school. Other than by

car, there are very few options

that I consider safe if there is no

107.

A bus that dropped him

in Bishopdale, would mean

walking along Gardiners Rd,

where there is no footpath.

Gardiners Rd is no better for

bikes, and I have watched many

terrifying moments involving

bikes and cars travelling at

speed on that road.

I hope that you [Environment

Canterbury] receive enough

feedback to reconsider.

David Robinson – I

agree with the comments in

the article: “The routes are

an ‘essential social service’

for people who have no other

means of travel that should

not have to rely on ‘fare box

recovery’ to survive.”

Central government (New

Zealand Transport

Agency) should

fully fund a full

coverage (max

800m walk to any

urban destination),

24-hour bus

network with

maximum 30min

head ways.

It doesn’t have

to be a fully fixed

route network. On-demand

transit can be used where the

fixed routes would be very

inefficient and connect to/from

the fixed route network.

This would be especially

needed at night where the fixed

network would be small.

This is “true public transport”

provision.

The overarching need to

provide a social transport

network in urban areas gets

lost in the fare box funding

debate.

Using a mixture of oil, watercolour, drypoint

and monotype, Philip’s work is as varied as the

landscapes he depicts.

Christchurch based Philip Beadle, whether

working with the human form or drawing

inspiration from the low sun on water agitated

by wind, uses the Canterbury environment to

inform his work.

Warm and inviting, cold and forgiving, water

and light are constant but also forever changing.

‘Water and Light’, it’s all around us and nowhere

more so than on the Banks Peninsula.

As small outcrop of volcanic rock jutting out into

the Southern Ocean we are surrounded on all

sides, and nowhere

is that interplay

between water and

light more evident.

The Little River

Gallery is proud to

host Philip Beadle’s

Local government would then

fund all bus services and level of

service improvements over and

above the “true public transport

network”, including reductions

in head ways (20, 15, 10, 5min)

and provision of express/limited

stops hub to hub services.

Jacque Skinner – I’m

literally a 10min drive from the

city but would need to catch two

buses to get there, how is that a

great bus service? Who wants

to have to change, and wait for

another bus with kids, 2min

after getting on one??

Plus they are removing

services that go through an area

with lots of elderly who will need

a bus service - there’s a brand

new retirement village just about

open on Cavendish Rd and

there’s going to be no bus?

Elizabeth Phua – Keep bus

108 is I think the better option.

But losing 107 means no bus

going to Willowbank, so the

tourists miss out. No win.

Cara Negus – Not only

is Environment Canterbury

proposing to cut six bus routes,

several of which are used by a

lot of older persons who can no

longer drive, the same proposal

also includes a cut to the

mobility taxi subsidies by $5 per

trip.

So not only will many people

lose their bus, their alternative

taxi ride could well get more

expensive. The 107 and 108 could

easily be combined.

Judy Broadbent – Just

writing to say I am most upset

at the prospect of losing services

on bus route numbers 107 and

108. This is my only means of

transport!

I have a medical condition

which prevents me from driving

a vehicle so I rely heavily on the

buses.

About two years ago we sold

our house in Redwood because

it was too far away from any

bus route, and purchased one in

Casebrook to solve my problem.

However, now it would appear

that there will be no buses in our

area if the planned cuts go ahead.

I am sure there are lots of

other residents who would suffer

should the services be cut.

Environment Canterbury

– Referring to more than 110,000

individual patrons being affected

is incorrect. The numbers we

provided are for passenger trips,

not individual users.

In the 2016-17 financial year,

63,316 trips were taken on route

107, and 47,348 trips on route

108.

The average number of people

on each route 107 trip was less

than four, and on route 108 less

than three.

Twin brothers uncanny record

•From page 1

Nant then stepped up again.

He took first place back with

another record-breaking leap, but

that was only for a few moments.

Not to be outdone, Nont out did

his brother on his second attempt

and it was all on for the third and

final attempts.

The boys stepped up for the

final jump each. A jump that

would see one of them labelled

school champion.

Teacher Matt Thatcher was

measuring the jumps. He said he

began to laugh when he saw the

numbers for the third jump. They

were identical – 10.84m.

“Everyone clicked and was

blown away. Some couldn’t believe

it,” he said.

But Mr Thatcher said the

two boys were not pleased with

the outcome. “Nant and Nont

did not seem too happy to be

tied.”

Nont said he and his brother

are particularly competitive,

especially during school athletics.

The triple jump wasn’t the only

record broken, three others fell,

including one by year 10 student

Sam Idiens who broke his own

record for the under-14 3000m.

Last year Sam ran a time of

10min 1.53sec, and this year

he managed to shave almost

1min off that, clocking in at

RACE: Sam Idiens broke his own school record in the under-14

3000m.

9min 59.80sec.

Year 12 student Oliver

Beresford recorded the school’s

best hammer throw distance of

39.92m, beating the old 37.39m

distance, held by former UC

Championship and first XV

star Isaiah Punivai.

And in the senior pole vault,

year 12 student Edward Hsing

jumped 3.65m, breaking Samuel

Bennetts’ 3.61m record.

Tracking cats to protect widlife

• By Bridget Rutherford

A CANTERBURY University

student wants to track where

house cats venture to in a bid to

better protect Travis Wetland

Nature Heritage Park – and she

needs your feline’s help.

Olivia Silvester, a masters

student who lives near the

wetland, is doing a six-month

study on the adventures of

cats living within a one block

radius of the important native

habitat.

The study would involve

attaching GPS trackers to cats

residing in the area with harnesses,

so where they venture to

could be tracked.

The Burwood freshwater wetland

has 55 species living there,

including 35 natives.

The native short-fined eel,

an indigenous skink and about

half of Christchurch’s pukeko

population live there, as well as

a diverse variety of insects, birds

and invertebrates.

It has a moat to stop cats and

other pests from entering, but

some still find their way in.

Miss Silvester said she needed

about 30 cats to take part in

the GPS research, and wanted

owners to get in touch if they

were interested in their cat being

involved.

now bigger than ever

The GPS trackers would need

to be worn 24/7, she said.

“If the cat is uncomfortable

the harness can be taken off and

the study stopped for that cat.”

The study would look at

where the cats go, how far they

travelled and what they brought

home with them, she said.

“The wetlands have a large

biodiversity of wildlife from

insects to skinks and birds,” she

said.

“Alongside the harness study,

there will be a prey retrieval

study looking at what your cat

brings home. It will inform us of

the main prey items of local cats

and we can adjust conservation

efforts accordingly.”

STUDY: A new

initiative will put GPS

trackers on cats

living near the Travis

Wetland Nature

Heritage Park in a

bid to better protect

wildlife there, such as

the spotless crake.

About 100 cats were

needed for the prey retrieval

study.

The owner would be required

to note down the items their cats

brought home, and store them in

provided zip-lock bags.

Miss Silvester said she would

visit once a month, or more, to

take the items away.

She said the study would also

measure how effective the existing

natural barriers were.

Miss Silvester said she would

be leaving information in

letterboxes in the area this

month to see whether anyone

would be interested in having

their cat involved in the study.

Boys’ High student has

managed to do what the world’s

best rowers could not.

He beat Eric Murray.

Although it wasn’t on the

water, year 12 student Tom

Woelders took on the double

Olympic gold medallist and

four-time world champion

in a head-to-head erg race on

Thursday night.

Before the short and fast

500m race on their rowing

machines, Tom and Murray had

a quick warm up.

The race was over in just over

1min.

But when he looked down to

see his time, Tom said he was

surprised he’d rowed more

than three seconds faster that

Murray.

He clocked 1min 19.8sec,

while Murray lost by more

than three seconds with 1min

23.2sec.

CBHS rowing coach Ricardo

De Souza said Tom was selected

because he had the best erg time

in the school.

Mr De Souza said after

beating Murray it’s clear Tom

has a bright rowing future

ahead of him.

His good form is just in time

for the Maadi Cup, which

begins on March 19 at Lake

Ruataniwha, Twizel.

Mr De Souza said he never

doubted Tom could win.

“I always had my money on

Tom. Eric’s been out of rowing

for a while now. Where Tom’s

just finishing up the end of

his season. He’s been on the

water non-stop for the last six

months,” he said.

Tom he said he wasn’t too

phased by the calibre of his

competitor. But it was a “great”

experience going up against the

Olympian.

“It was a really good time. He

gave me a few pointers before

the race,” Tom said.

Although he wasn’t certain

he could beat him, it was a great

feeling looking down at the erg

and seeing his time was more

than three seconds faster than

Murray’s.

But beating Murray hasn’t

gone to Tom’s head.

His mind is firmly on the

next big competition, which

will be the last chance he has to

take out the Maadi Cup with

CBHS before he finishes

school.

“We’re just getting ready for

Maadi now,” he said.

After the race, Murray helped

the school name the two new

Laszlo boats in its fleet, which

the rowers will be taking to

Twizel.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Road works

will add more

vehicles to

Main North Rd

AT LEAST 400 extra cars an hour

will be using Main North Rd

during peak times until mid-May.

It comes as the intersection of

Grimseys Rd and QE II Drive has

been closed to allow for construction

of two additional lanes on QE

II Drive as part of the Northern

Corridor work.

Traffic from Grimseys Rd is being

detoured down to Daniels Rd

and then onto Main North Rd.

New Zealand Transport Agency

delivery manager Colin MacKay

said it is a “noticeable amount” of

extra traffic.

“(The detour) will work well

when drivers are patient and give

themselves a few extra minutes

travel time.”

In May the intersection will be

temporarily open to one lane of

traffic. But from early September to

mid-October, the intersection will

be closed again as the new intersection

is constructed.

The new layout of the Grimseys

Rd intersection will mean that access

will be left in and out only.

Work is taking place between

Monday and Saturday, 7am to 7pm

Centuries old folk

remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of

powerful health benefits. It is none other than the

popular apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the

“Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS &

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey

had excellent health with many putting in

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties. He also noted

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting

almost total relief after taking a course

of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed ACV and

H around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he

found was that protein foods thickened

the blood and vinegar thinned it. As the

blood thickens it cannot pass as easily

and quickly through the blood vessels and

capillaries. This poor blood flow

would reduce cellular health by

limiting nutrients to the cells as

well as waste elimination from the

cells. To prevent cell damage the

body naturally increases blood

pressure but this puts more stress

on the blood vessels, organs and

heart. Having ACV and H with

meals will help prevent protein

raising the blood pressure. It also

contributes to a feeling of greater

well-being because the thinner

blood circulates quickly and

more easily through the blood

vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular

consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with

numerous Health attributes.

ACV SUPPORTS

• Healthy digestion, assimilation of nutrients, elimination of wastes

• Energy – Vitality – Endurance

• Elimination of viruses, bacteria, fungus & parasites

• Powerful antioxidant

• Cardiovascular health, blood flow & healthy blood pressure

• Diabetes – improves insulin sensitivity

• Arthritis & joint support • Longevity & improved health

• Settles the stomach & reduces reflux

• Weight Loss

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all

the goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the bodyGood health

starts with good digestion and assimilation

of nutrients. ACV taken before food will

stimulate and promote healthy digestion

and assimilation of vital nutrients for good

health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any

toxic substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is

produced in the traditional way and results

are likely to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in

the traditional way. It is double strength so

you can use less.

What’s happening

at Lady Wigram

Retirement Village?

It’s been a busy few years for The

Golden Healthcare Group with their latest

development of Lady Wigram Retirement

Village on Kittyhawk Road. The first villas

were occupied in August 2015 and now 101

villas are completed.

In December, the club house opened

which provides a bowling green, hair

dressing salon, restaurant and bar, billiard

room, movie theatre and library. The Club

House has all the trimmings, including 16

one and two bedrooms Apartments. The

next stage will also include a swimming

pool, gym and a further 14 Apartments.

When speaking with one of their

residents about how he feels about the new

Club house, Mr Havill said “everyone is

so excited about it opening, we have all

been watching it very closely’. Mr Havill is

fascinated as to how the fountain works.

He has lived in the village for the past

few years, enjoying his new life style and

making friends. He has also picked up new

hobbies including learning to play mahjong,

“I love it, I had never played in my life”. Mr

Havill owned his own home for 44 years

and in that time he maintained the house,

painted it, did this... did that. “We don’t

have to do that anymore, this is my place for

the moment. Every villa is different, even

though they look the same. But you make it

your own”. One thing Mr Havill likes at this

age is “the gates shut at night, we can get in

but no one else can and that is an additional

sense of security for us”.

Owner John Tooby says “our residents

are very involved in the continuing

development of the village, they share our

pride in making this a great place to live. It’s

a real community and it continues to grow”.

How’s your LIVER doing?

Your liver affects how you feel, your

mood, hormones, energy and overall

health. In fact it carries out over 500 crucial

functions that are vital to maintain good

health. If your liver is under-performing as

is the case for most of us, it means that the

body has more toxins that could be setting

the stage for disease. Disease can normally

only survive if the environment is suitable.

A well performing body will generally have

a much better chance of staying healthy.

Some symptoms of an underperforming

liver can be: Fatigue, weakness, trouble

concentrating, confusion, dark urine, dark

circles under the eyes, yellow discoloration

of the whites of the eyes, bloating and gas,

dry and dark patches on the neck and

under arms, bruising easily, constipation,

skin spots and rashes, eczema, psoriasis,

hormonal problems, moody and many

more.

The liver is the only organ in the body that

can regenerate itself if the right conditions

are met. In most cases the liver function can

be improved relatively easily with diet and

lifestyle changes and nutritional support.

Natural herbal extracts like milk thistle,

dandelion, globe artichoke, burdock, grape

seed and turmeric have been shown to be

very effective at supporting detoxification,

digestion and liver function. These herbs

are food for the liver and body. They

provide the building blocks to allow the

liver to regenerate healthy cells. All these

ingredients are available in a high potency

one-a-day vegie capsule.

Fresh vegetable juices are an excellent way

to provide the body with easily absorbed

nutrients. They also help the liver detox the

body and support its regeneration.

Certain strains of probiotics have been

shown to support healthy digestion, liver

function and much more. A one-a-day

comprehensive high potency probiotic

is highly recommended to support good

health.

Apple cider vinegar as well as being highly

nutritious contains beneficial enzymes that

support healthy digestion, liver function

and absorption of nutrients.

As your liver function improves you will

notice increased energy, clearer skin, less

hormonal problems, better digestion, and

a positive mood and sharper mind just to

name a few.

Further detailed information on

how to support your liver and general

health is available from the Natural

Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, phone 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

Highly effective

treatment brings

NOR’WEST NEWS

Special offer - one treatment for

arthritis at half price for the first 10 people

who make an appointment before april 6.

‘amazing’ results

for arthritis patient

Anyone that suffers from arthritis will know the pain, discomfort

and sheer inconvenience this can cause in day-to-day life.

However, thanks to a highly effective treatment

offered by Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao,

they can get fast, and very often immediate relief.

Lan developed the treatment, known as

‘acupuncture without needles’, which she describes

as being similar to reflexology in that the problem

area on the body is determined through pressure,

but is much more accurate.

One client who was thrilled with the results of

this treatment, is Corinna Cornelius. Corinna was

having problems with her right hand after she overused

it following an injury to her left hand and it

became arthritic.

“I couldn’t close my hand up and make a fist, and

it was also very painful, especially if I knocked it.

This also made it very difficult to do everyday things

like picking up a cup of tea or cleaning my teeth,”

Corinna said.

After hearing about Lan’s treatment from a friend,

Corinna decided to give it a try, and was thrilled

with the results.

“The difference after one treatment was amazing.

My hand wasn’t painful and I could make a fist.”

A further six treatments followed, and Corinna

said while her hand was still slightly stiff, it was

improving every day and things were back to

normal. Following a holiday in Australia, she was

due to go back to Lan for a check-up, but didn’t

think she would need any further treatment.

“I love her skills. What she did was just amazing –

and there were no needles involved!”

Lan uses acupuncture without needles to treat a

wide range of injuries and medical conditions and is

now ACC registered.

Dr Lan is offering one treatment for arthritis

at half price for the first 10 people who make an

appointment before April 6. Her clinic is located

at 108 Sawyers Arms Road, and her hours are

Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to

5pm.

To discuss your health issues or make an

appointment, phone 323 4168 or 027 231 8388.

HOME & HEATING

Temporary premises

for Smooth-Air

Throughout 2018, it’s business as usual

for ventilation equipment specialists,

Smooth-Air, as they operate from

temporary premises at 351c Blenheim

Road while their Annex Rd premises are

being rebuilt.

Due to re-open in early 2019, the

new building will be better suited to the

company’s needs and more efficient than

the previous one, marketing spokesperson

Kate Rattray says.

“In the meantime, we will be continually

moving onwards and upwards with

an increased product range to service

our commercial, trade and domestic

customers.

“We are also pleased to have on board

our new national sales manager Phil

Henderson, and new regional manager

Richard Jack. Their focus will be on

continuing to provide customers with

excellent service and advice,” Kate says.

Experts in providing quality of air for

domestic and commercial purposes,

Smooth-Air supplies equipment for all

types of ventilation systems including

ducting, grilles, diffusers and fans – in

fact, anything that moves air into, out of,

or around a building.

While the majority of customers are

trade, Smooth-Air also sells directly to

the public, with a range of extraction

and ventilation systems, as well as other

ventilation components for domestic use.

For the domestic market, the focus is on

cleaner, drier, warmer homes. Smooth-Air

has several ventilation systems designed

for the New Zealand climate. The HEX390

is a heat exchanger suitable for domestic

and commercial premises, exchanging

fresh air for stale, while reclaiming heat

(or cooling) from the expelled air.

Their HTU heat transfer unit is another

popular option, transferring heat from

log burners to other areas of the home,

improving energy efficiency and reducing

power consumption.

Smooth-Air also caters for large

commercial projects, with the capacity to

produce substantial quantities of TD panel

duct, as well as provide other specified

equipment, including AirChange heat

exchangers such as those used for the Jellie

Park Pool.

Their skilled workshop team builds

ducting components, and these can be

supplied from stock, or made to customer

specifications. With the purchase of a

new building in Christchurch, which is

dedicated to manufacturing, Smooth-

Air have recently more than doubled

their manufacturing capacity. Along

with their Auckland

and Wellington

workshops, Smooth-

Air’s workshop floor

space now totals nearly

3000sqm, and of the 80

staff nationwide, 30 are

dedicated workshop

staff members.

Engineering manager

Mike Nash oversees all

three workshops.

“As suppliers to

customers in all areas of

New Zealand, we pride

ourselves in doing the

job right first time.” Mike says.

“With manufacturing capability in

Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington

we are able to share workload across

locations, keeping manufacturing inhouse,

providing a flexibility to our

customers and reliability of supply by

cross-utilisation of resources.

“At Smooth-Air, our policy is to provide

a one-stop solution to all our customers

in the HVAC industry. As well as our

manufacturing prowess, we also have the

ability to source items from a wide range of

suppliers both locally and internationally.”

A nationwide operation, Smooth-Air’s

head office is Christchurch, with branches

located in Auckland and Wellington.

Their temporary Christchurch premises

are located at 351c Blenheim Road, just

round the corner from their original

Annex Rd site.
