What a cracking idea! Professor Dunlop’s BRAINBOX announces lucky winner

Since October 2009, Professor Dunlop’s Brainbox campaign has seen entries coming in thick and fast. Now after sifting through the numerous ideas submitted before 31st January 2010, the first Professor Dunlop’s BRAINBOX winner has finally been announced. It was Ian Draycott from Chester whose idea really stood out, according to the judging panel including Dunlop Adhesives’ Debi Bailey.

  • Ian is now the proud owner of a Dell Laptop thanks to his winning suggestion for a bagged lightweight screed with insulating properties
  • As a floor layer by trade, he wanted to replace an ordinary sand/cement screed with a lightweight alternative
  • Entries were extremely varied including the two other shortlist submissions
  • Sandy Craig, a joiner from Angus for example, suggested that longer sealant nozzles should come included with the sealant, as sometimes the one provided is too short to get into hard to access areas
  • The other, by Sheffield roofer, Dean Gerstel, was a fantastic tip for all those who battle with wooden spouts/gutters
