|PCT/NZ2013/000237||WONG, Spencer||WONG, Spencer|
A fabric clamping assembly for clamping and securing fabric and signage material substrates. The fabric clamping assembly can clamp light weight materials through to heavy upholstery fabrics, including multiple layers of fabric. The fabric clamp assembly can be applied to fabric covered furniture, signage and products. The fabric or material substrate is tensioned over a profiled member and insert clips are inserted without the need for tools, clamping the fabric in a selected aperture depending on the material thickness. The insert clips can be removed without the need for tools when replacing the fabric or material substrate.

|PCT/NZ2014/000042||THERMOPLASTIC ENGINEERING LIMITED||LLOYD, Reece Carl|
The invention relates to a heat recovery system that has particular application in hazardous and corrosive environments. The system comprises a heat exchanger with a housing having an air supply inlet, an air supply outlet, an exhaust inlet and an exhaust outlet; and a plurality of panels within the housing. The panels are spaced apart from each other to form a plurality of first channels extending through the heat exchanger in a first direction. Each panel comprises substantially parallel walls separated by spacers, to form a plurality of second channels extending through each panel in a second direction. Spaces between the panels in the second direction are closed. The supply air outlet is in communication with the exhaust air inlet. The system includes a fume cupboard having an exhaust means in communication with the exhaust outlet of the heat exchanger; and an air conditioner having a supply air intake means.

||PCT/NZ2014/000043||BROWN, William, Grant||BROWN, William, Grant|
A control joint sealing against gas or water around conduits passing through concrete slab floors may also mechanically isolate the conduit from the slab in relation to radial and axial motion. The joint comprises an impermeable flexible sheet having a central hole, welded around the edge of the hole to one end of a sleeve of the same material. In use, the sleeve surrounds the conduit, and the sheet is sealed on to a damp course membrane underlying the slab. A resilient surround is optionally placed between the conduit and the slab.

|PCT/NZ2014/000047||WARATAH NZ LIMITED||SWINYARD, Douglas Craig|
A timber-working head, and more particularly a timber-working head having a drive wheel arm is provided. The head has a frame, and a drive wheel arm pivotally coupled to the frame. The arm includes a rotary drive, a rotary union between the frame and the rotary drive. The rotary union includes a pivot sleeve to which the rotary drive is mounted. The pivot sleeve has an internal bore and an outer surface, with at least one first port between the bore and the outer surface. A shaft is positioned in the bore, with at least one fluid passage having a second port in fluid communication with the first port.

|PCT/NZ2014/000050||AUCKLAND UNISERVICES LIMTED||LEARY, Peter|
Method and system for determining or predicting a parameter (alpha) indicative of fracture connectivity from core sample information either before or after injection of pressurised fluid to induce fracturing in a geological or geothermal reservoir or other subsurface region. Alpha and/or changes in alpha are monitored during fluid pressurisation through wellbore to control pressurisation, preferably to acquire a desired degree of fracture connectivity for improving reservoir productivity and performance.
|6.||WO||WO/2014/148922 - AN IMPROVED CONTACT LENS AND IMPROVED METHOD OF FABRICATION OF CONTACT LENSES||25.09.2014||
|PCT/NZ2014/000046||EYECAN HOLDINGS LIMITED||TURNER, Peter|
A method of generating data for use in fabricating a contact lens for an eye is provided. Posterior lens data defining a posterior lens surface for the lens is generated dependent on ocular surface data generated by a scanner to represent the ocular surface of an eye. Anterior lens data defining an anterior surface for the lens to define optical properties for the lens is then generated. The anterior lens data is generated dependent on the posterior surface data. The posterior lens data is generated dependent on scanned data representing the ocular surface of an eye. Also provided is a contact lens with support surfaces which contact the eye in use and supported surfaces formed in relief in the posterior lens surface and which are supported by the support surfaces to minimise or avoid contact between the lens and features on the ocular surface.

|PCT/NZ2014/000049||AUCKLAND UNISERVICES LIMITED||LEARY, Peter|
A method and system for determining or predicting a factor relating to an effective well-bore region, such as an effective wellbore diameter or other dimension, of an extraction well-bore of a geological or geothermal reservoir or other subsurface region, and controlling extraction of a natural resource, such as hot water from the subsurface region in accordance with the determined or predicted factor. Determination of such a factor includes analysis of the degree of permeability and/or fracture connectivity in a region surrounding the wellbore.

Nasal cannula assemblies for providing respiratory therapy to patients are provided. A nasal cannula assembly can include a cannula, an optional manifold which may be removable, a gas supply tube, and a securement mechanism. Securement mechanisms can include headgear straps, cheek pads, or an adhesive nose strip. A nasal cannula assembly can also include a lanyard, lanyard clip, and/or lanyard connector to help support the weight of a main gas delivery conduit.
