Van Luyken wins Black & Decker competition

01 june 2010

Together with Interel, our Belgian colleague consultancy, we have won the Black & Decker competition held at the beginning of May for the introduction of the Thermal Leak Detector (TLD) in the Benelux. Thanks to our good contacts within the PROI network we were able to pool our resources with Interel.

With the TLD the consumer can easily detect cold and heat leakages in the home. In this way he or she can see which places require extra insulation. And, not insignificantly, this can save money. When the detector is moved along doors and windows a blue light goes on in the event of a cold infiltration (draft) and a red one when it detects a heat leakage.

Black & Decker was established in America in 1900 as a small machine store. In 2010
Black & Decker is the largest producer of electrical tools and (household) accessories in the world.
