Team Trafalgar Cycles for Charity

Managing Director and owner of Trafalgar Products, John Rakic, has spent a week "in the saddle" for a great cause.  John and the 'Team Trafalgar' completed the Macsim Sydney to Surfers Charity Bike Ride to help raise funds for Father Chris Riley's Youth off the Streets.  Departing Hornsby (NSW) on Saturday 3 May and concluding in Southport (QLD) on Friday 9 May, ride competitors cycled almost 1000kms through wind, hills and windy roads.  Along the way they stopped and caught some of the country's big the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour!   "It was a challenging and exhausting ride but provides great satisfaction to complete and raise funds for a worthy charity", said John Rakic.  Annually, John participates in organised marathon bike rides.  Whilst keeping the 'old bugger' fit, his passion for endurance rides has seen him raise thousands of dollars for charity.

FyreWrap New Approvals

Trafalgar has obtained NEW APPROVALS and how have a 1-layer (of FyreWrap) tested system for ALL steel ductwork, which achieves an FRL of 120/120/120 for both fire from the inside and outside in accordance with AS1530.4-2005.  This makes it even easier to use and specify for your fire rated ductwork and will be even more cost effective as you only need 1-layer for ALL 2 hour requirements on the following ducts:  kitchen exhaust ducts; stair pressurisation ducts; supply air ducts; chemical/fume cupboard exhaust ducts; car park exhaust ducts; general ventilation ducts; smoke spill systems; other smoke exhaust ducts.   For further information on FyreWrap and our new approvals call 1800 888 714 or email Sam Schmidt at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
