After the clean space has been created the air in the crawlspace can be conditioned by one of several different ways depending on the crawlspaces individual situation. All components need to be in place or the desired results will not be achieved.

The Scagliola Stone Collection By Thierry Francois At Stone Age Designs Is A Marble Based Formula That Is Being Selected Over Hand-Carved Stones Like Limestone And Travertine All Across The Country For Fireplace Mantels, Stone Fireplace Mantels, Kitchen Hoods And Stone Kitchen Hoods With The Beauty And Aesthetics Of Authentic Stone

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 15, 2022 -- The Scagliola Stone Collection By Thierry Francois At Stone Age Designs Is A Marble Based Formula That Is Being Selected Over Hand-Carved Stones Like Limestone And Travertine All Across The Country For Fireplace Mantels, Stone Fireplace Mantels, Kitchen Hoods And Stone Kitchen Hoods For The Beauty And Aesthetics Of Authentic Stone.

The Scagliola Stone Collection by Thierry Francois at Stone Age Designs is a marble based formula that is being selected over hand-carved stones like Limestone and Travertine all across the country for Fireplace Mantels, Stone Fireplace Mantels, Kitchen Hoods, and Stone Kitchen Hoods for the beauty and aesthetics of authentic stone. Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola Stone is a secret marble based formula that is being selected over hand-carved stone for mantels, stone fireplaces, kitchen hoods, and kitchen stove hoods as designers discover the rare beauty of Scagliola.

Stone Age Designs’ own Scagliola Stone has the beauty, and the appearance of Limestone and Travertine, and the look and feel of authentic stone. The - exclusive - secret marble based Scagliola formula is the genius of Thierry Francois. Thierry re-discovered and enhanced his hand-made, secret formula for Scagliola or “Scaglia” that was originally created by the Italian Monks of the 17th Century who used Scagliola in their own creations that remain awe inspiring today though the formula was lost until re-discovered by Stone Age Designs.

Today, Scagliola is created using Stone Age Designs’ secret formula that blends crushed Marble, Limestone, and Travertine into cast stone and cultured stone creations that can been seen at the new Stone Age Designs Showcase at http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/showcase/index.html where you may see these new – beautiful – creations available exclusively at Stone Age Designs.

Stone Age Designs re-discovered Scagliola and the Scagliola Stone Collection by Thierry Francois have been discovered worldwide, and Francois’ design genius is now being requested for new custom creations. So go beyond the quarry and discover Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola:
Fireplace Mantels … http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/mantels
Kitchen Hoods … http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/kitchen
Accents … http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/accents
Arches, Columns, Complete Wall Creations, Crown Moldings, Pedestals, Spiral Staircases, Statues, Surrounds, Waterfalls, and Lion Heads are just some of the Accents created by Stone Age Designs that are being selected by Architects -- Commercial and Residential – Custom Homebuilders as well as Homeowners who want to beautify their homes with new Fireplace Designs, or with a new design for a Kitchen Stone Stove Hood.

Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola is breathtaking, and it is a one of a kind blend of stone or cast stone that is easy to use, easy to install, and Architects, Custom Home Builders, Designers, and Homeowners have found that Custom Creations and Custom Designs are just a Cad Drawing away.

The design possibilities for your home are endless, and Homeowners across the country have found that what they can see in their own mind – a new Kitchen Hood – Francois’ genius of creation makes it easy to see own design in their own home.

And Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola is not nearly as costly as Limestone or Travertine while it is just as beautiful as hand carved quarry stone. Custom Scagliola Stone by Stone Age Designs eliminates the need for uneven hand-carved stone; quarry stones are limited in their colors, and the colors are inconsistent. Quarry stones are labor intensive, more expensive to ship and carve which is the only reason they are more expensive, and quarry stones delay contractors because deliveries are late and stones are often broken or cracked when delivered, and that means your piece is glued back together. True – Glue.

Our world elegance in your home today with the elegance of authentic custom stone is now a reality when you select the secret formula from Stone Age Designs’ Scagliola for your new Fireplace Mantel, Kitchen Hood, or your new Cast Stone Arches, Columns, Wall Creations, Crown Moldings, Pedestals, Spiral Staircases, Statues, Surrounds, Waterfalls, and Lion Heads – all from http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/ or call contact Stone Age Designs today in Atlanta at 404.350.3333, in Winter Park, Florida at 407.628.5577, or in Charlotte at 704.377.4577 to speak to the genius of the creations at Stone Age Designs.

Alternate Energy, Inc., to Distribute Apricus™ Products Throughout New England

The high performance solar collector is combined with a unique operating system that has been proven over a thirty-year period. The system eliminates costly heat exchangers and transfer fluids, as well as associated maintenance.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 3, 2022 -- Alternate Energy, Inc. unveils revolutionary thermal collector technology products from Apricus™ in the middle of winter! When asked about how winter in Massachusetts would affect them, Steve Pitney, Owner/Operator of Alternate Energy, Inc., said “These don’t need hot summer sun to heat water. They can perform even on cold winter days. Moreover, we can use this heat energy for hot water applications like showers, clothes-washers, baths, dishwashers, and even space heating, and air-conditioning.”

The high performance solar collector is combined with a unique operating system that has been proven over a thirty-year period. The system eliminates costly heat exchangers and transfer fluids, as well as associated maintenance. “The combination is unbeatable.” states Pitney.

These will be featured at Building Energy 05, The Conference and Trade Show for Green and Renewable Energy Professionals, Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA March 15-17, 2005.

When asked about the technology Mr. Pitney enthusiastically added, “This is light years ahead of anything previously used in the industry. Apricus™ systems perform at a much higher level, and eliminate the need for an internal heat exchanger. This product is revolutionizing the solar hot water industry. They’re tubes… they’re round! This means they perform much better- even in cold weather- than flat panels do because of the way sunlight hits them. Besides that, flat panels just lose a lot of heat.”

The sun's energy is absorbed and converted to heat by vacuum tubes (collectors) like the one in your coffee thermos. It’s actually a tube within a tube. The tops of the two tubes are bonded together and the air is removed to form a vacuum between them. The outer wall of the tube is made of very strong, transparent, impact-resistant glass. The inner tube (also glass) is specially coated to absorb solar heat while minimizing heat reflection. Heat is trapped in the inner tube because a vacuum is a very effective insulator. It’s so effective that, while the inside of the tube may be 300 degrees Fahrenheit, the outer tube is cold to touch.

According to Mr. Pitney, inside the [inner] glass tube is a copper [heat] pipe that has had the air removed but has a little purified water put in. Because water boiling temperatures decrease as the air pressure is decreased, the heat pipes used in vacuum tube solar collectors have a boiling point of about 86 degrees Fahrenheit (Normally water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit.). When the pipe is heated above the eighty-six degree temperature, the water boils [and vaporizes] to the top of the pipe. From there the heat is transferred to a manifold [through which water flows and is thereby heated]. As the heat is lost at the top of the pipe (the condenser), the vapor condenses back to water, returns to the bottom of the heat pipe and, as long as rays from the sun are absorbed and converted to heat by the tube, the process continues repeatedly. With a curved surface, the collectors consistently convert solar energy into heat (until the sun is at a 40-degree angle).

Alternate Energy specializes in the installation, maintenance, and repair of renewable energy systems such as Solar Hot Water, Photovoltaic (PV), and Wind Turbines.

Vandgard Wins Contract to Supply Anti-Climb Barrier To Canadian Embassy in Haiti

The Canadian Embassy have chosen Vandgard's Rotating Anti-Climb Guard to defend their new premises in the centre of the city. Virtually impossible to climb over, Vandgard's unique rotating design is effective without intent to harm.

(PRWEB) February 25, 2022 -- Vandgard has won a contract to supply its rotating anti-climb security barrier, with Defensor alarm system by Geoquip, to the Canadian Embassy in Port au Prince, Haiti. It is to be installed along the entire perimeter wall of the Canadian Embassy’s new premises in the centre of the city to defend the grounds against intruders.

Virtually impossible to climb over, Vandgard's unique design is effective without intent to harm. A series of curved vanes, each revolving freely around a central shaft, create an unstable barrier which moves if anyone attempts to climb over it. Unlike Razor Wire, it is not a trap. It has no impaling spike and the vanes are curved away from vertical to protect against falling accidents.

In this application, the central shaft of the Vandgard barrier being used at the Canadian Embassy is also fitted with the Defensor alarm system, supplied by Geoquip Limited. This activates an alarm in the Embassy’s security control room should anyone attempt to move or tamper with the barrier.

The system's unique safety angle is one of its most powerful benefits. It is used with equal confidence in schools and children's play areas as it is at government buildings and other high security establishments, and in commercial and industrial premises throughout the UK and Europe.

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Successfully Defends Its Invention In Patent-Pending Status

Southern California Company Develops Partnership After Discovering Its Product Was a Look-Like and Copy

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 21, 2022 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., the world’s largest concrete washout service company, announced today that it has successfully defended the CWS in patent-pending status and entered into a licensing partnership with Knoble Construction, Inc., a Redlands, California company, who had developed a similar product to Concrete Washout Systems patent pending invention, which published on August 12, 2021

“Although we do not yet have a patent, federal statute, 35 U.S.C. Section 154, provides us with certain rights now, including issuing cease and desist letters. If the issued patent is substantially identical to our patent application, we will have the right to obtain a reasonable royalty from anyone who makes, uses, offers for sale or sells an invention as claimed in our application, with actual knowledge of our published patent application,” stated Kevin Mickelson, Vice President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. “We are very serious about protecting our intellectual property rights and our legal team will aggressively pursue any person or company whom we believe is violating our intellectual property rights,” added Mr. Mickelson.

Concrete Washout Systems strongly encourages any company or persons who may have a similar product in development or in operation to contact them immediately. Concrete Washout Systems would rather explore and develop licensed partnerships instead of pursuing legal actions against companies and believe this partnership is a win-win scenario for all parties involved.

“Joe Knobloch developed a product that was substantially similar to ours and we immediately notified him of our product and system when we discovered his. Mr. Knobloch has acknowledged that his product was a close copy, read our patent application and decided it would be advantageous for him to pursue a licensed partnership after we offered him one. We are very pleased to have a person and businessman of Mr. Knobloch’s character, integrity and savvy as a partner and believe he will be a great addition and asset to our business,” noted Mr. Mickelson.

“Knoble Construction is excited about entering into a licensing partnership with Concrete Washout Systems, Inc.; a company that has successfully developed an environmentally safe concrete washout box and waste water removal treatment and recycling operation,” stated Joe Knobloch, President of Knoble Construction, Inc. “We will be marketing the concrete washout systems box and related services initially on our own jobsites within Southern California, but will expand to outside jobs as demand increases in an effort to foster recycling and waste diversion efforts within the building industry,” added Mr. Knobloch.

The patent pending Concrete Washout Systems™ container is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater. It allows trade personnel to easily washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on site and facilitates easy off site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater, while protecting the storm drain system from potential illegal discharges. The off site recycling component creates an even more environmentally sound application. This system replaces other outdated washout BMP’s, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over use and lack of maintenance.

Digital Lifestyles' program takes the client from start to finish in providing the service of bringing home automation to the mass market.

(PRWEB) February 21, 2022 -- Digital Lifestyles, LLC, and Home Planners, LLC, wholly owned by Hanley Wood, LLC, have partnered to provide consumers and home builders with an affordable home automation upgrade package.

Digital Lifestyle’s universal plug-and-play wiring topology design—named “HA-Ready”—is the cornerstone of this innovative product. HA-Ready’s standard design offers 10 subsystems: lighting, security, telecommunications, climate control, home networking, home theater, whole-house audio/video distribution, video surveillance, electronic entry access, and motorized window treatments, and can be applied in single-family or multifamily dwellings. Designs for wiring a gaming substructure are currently in development for use with Sony, GameCube, Nintendo, Xbox, and other gaming platforms.

HA-Ready provides an affordable entry point for mid-market consumers and builders looking to create the home of the future. The topology installation and materials are priced at approximately $4-7 per square foot, making it affordable for the mainstream, 2,500-square-foot market. This unique and affordable approach has one goal—to encourage adoption of advanced home technologies and increase growth opportunities across multiple businesses and business models.

HA-Ready offers installers more labor revenues and the opportunity to design and install additional electronics beyond the basic wiring topology. The universal topology will support any currently available electronics system, account for furniture placement and rearrangement, and accommodate future growth and technological advances.

Digital Lifestyles has also formulated a partnership with ConnectHome that will allow potential installers to participate in ConnectHome’s installation network. In return, ConnectHome refers its incoming design work back to Digital Lifestyles.

Artemis Solutions Group Announces a Dramatic Price Drop on the BioCert® Guardian™ Fingerprint Door Lock

Imagine securing your home with the latest in fingerprint biometric technology and at the same time eliminating the headache of shared or lost keys. Now you can with the BioCert® Guardian™ Biometric Door Lock from Biometrics Direct... All for much less than you might imagine! The BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock runs exclusively on battery power. Powered by 4 AA batteries, it can be operated for up to a year without changing the batteries. Fingerprint enrollment is quick and easy. Up to 138 users can be enrolled directly on the fingerprint lock at the door.

Freeland, WA (PRWEB) February 17, 2022 -- US Company - Artemis Solutions Group, a privately held biometric and smart card technology company is releasing for sale and distribution the revolutionary BioCert® Guardian™ Fingerprint Door Lock. This revolutionary consumer product is squarely targeted at home and small business consumers with a retail price of $199.95

"In addition to being a refuge from the hectic pace of the modern day world, our homes are a gathering place for friends and family.

Often it is necessary for us to grant others access to our homes when we are not available or for us to have access without a key.

Now you can secure your home with the BioCert Guardian fingerprint door lock. Our core marketing message for this product is "BioCert® - The Power of You™", and this technology really lives up to that slogan. Only people that you personally authorize can unlock the door with their fingerprint." states James Childers - President of Artemis Solutions Group. (http://www.artemis-usa.com)

"This revolutionary technology was developed and integrated by our partner Adel for use in China and Hong Kong and now the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock is becoming one of the hottest technology items for homes and small business throughout the globe." said Mac McGolpin - Operations Director for Intelligent Biometric Solutions, LTD. (http://www.biometriq.com)

The BioCert trademark is registered in the United States and is exclusively owned by Artemis Solutions Group which operates a group of biometric and smart card companies with distributorships and authorized resellers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Hong Kong.

Intelligent Biometric Solutions Ltd is the sourcing arm affiliated with Artemis Solutions Group.

BioCert® door locks have recently been featured in the smash hit Extreme Makeover Home Edition on ABC Television and in the hit movie iRobot starring Will Smith. The drawback to these locks in the past has been their high price and required professional installation because of a mortise lockset.

Mr. Childers clarifies - "Traditionally, biometric locks have been based upon the highly secure 5 latch international mortise. This type of mortise is used primarily in hotels, banks and office buildings because of the increased strength of the latch. Unfortunately product requires a professional carpenter or locksmith to route out a hole to install the lock. We designed the BioCert Guardian Fingerprint Door Lock to be used either stand alone or in conjunction with the customers existing deadbolt.

One of the best features of the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock is that it uses a standard cylindrical lockset with both a 2 3/8 or 2 3/4" backset supplied and can be quickly installed in most doors with little effort.

I myself am all thumbs when it comes to mechanical projects and yes... even I had this installed, up and running on my office door in under 20 minutes with NO additional tools required. Everything I needed was right in the box!"

The BioCert® Guardian™ Fingerprint Door Lock is designed as a secure biometric door lock for home and small business with the following unique benefits -

Security and Peace of Mind - The Many uses of the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock

Home Use -
Family - From the student that is fresh off to college to the family member that occasionally visits and arrives late in the night, it is often necessary for family members to have a way to enter our homes without additional intervention on our part. Currently the only ways to accommodate these scenarios is by giving the individual a key or leaving one in a location that can be readily accessed (under the proverbial door mat). But what happens when someone loses their key, worse yet, what happens when you need to change the locks because a key left in an easily guessed location was lost or stolen? With the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock you can program up to 138 individuals fingerprints into the lock for immediate access. This allows you to grant access to any individual you choose.

Walkers & Joggers - There is nothing quite like an early morning walk or jog to jump start your day. Carrying extra items like wallets, purses and keys is not convenient for this activity. While it is possible to simply leave your front door open or leave a key under the mat, this is not conducive to good home security. Why not use something you always take with you to open the door? Your fingerprint cannot be lost, stolen or forgotten with the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock.

Children - In today's society most families have parents that work. Often in single parent families or families where both parents are working outside the home it is necessary for children to have access to the home while the parents are away. Entrusting even the most responsible child with a key is problematic. Keys that are lost, stolen or simply left in a desk at school will not ensure that your child arrives safely inside the house after a day at school. With the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock you can have confidence in knowing that your child has access to the safety of your home even when you can't be there.

Shared Residence, Condos, Apartments & Time Shares - If you own a piece of property where you share ownership such as a condo, leased apartment or vacation home, the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock will allow you to grant access to all ownership parties while maintaining absolute control over who has access. You can be guaranteed that there will be no key swapping or sharing and that only the authorized individuals have access using the security of Fingerprint Biometric Technology.

Office Use - Management Suite and Human Resource Offices - Protect your business' most important assets and the future of your company with the Biometric Security Features of the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock.

Secure the IT Closet or Server Room with the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock. With the growing importance of ecommerce and online transaction processing the security of your IT infrastructure has never been so critical as it is now.

Technology & Supplies Store Room - It is frighteningly true that most theft in small business is from internal sources. Most organizations don't even realize that they have been too trustworthy until it is too late. While most employees are honest and worthy of the great trust we place in them, there can be those within your organization that have less than honest intent.

Don't even give an unscrupulous employee a chance. Whether the loss in your organization is an employee stealing high ticket items to turn into ready cash by selling them on an internet auction site or an employee pilfering office supplies, you can trust your security to the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock.

Rollex's Manchester Vinyl Siding Manifests Darker Colors Desired by Homeowners

To satisfy new tastes in home building and remodeling, Rollex Corporation has introduced Manchester vinyl siding, which boasts the darkest vinyl siding colors in the company's 50-year history.

Elk Grove Village, IL (PRWEB) February 17, 2022 -- Utilizing new developments in plastics engineering, Rollex Corporation has introduced Manchester vinyl siding, which boasts the darkest vinyl siding colors in the company's 50-year history.

The Manchester series includes four "premium dark colors": medium-brown Carmel; gray-blue Blue Granite, brown-gray Acorn, and medium-green Sage. In addition, Manchester comes in 14 light and mid-range colors.

The siding also has a newly designed nailing hem to aid contractors and installers. "The homebuilding industries, particularly custom builders, remodelers, and architects, are demanding richer, darker colors in vinyl siding," says Jennifer Thompson, Rollex's marketing director. "Their customers want the low-maintenance of vinyl in a broader color spectrum. Recent advances in plastic resins allow us to meet that demand with confidence in the product's long-term durability."

"Colorfastness and thermal stability have been the traditional obstacles to darker vinyl siding colors," Rollex says.

"Manchester's dark-hued panels utilize a new, highly fade-resistant top-layer material from chemical giant BASF Corp. This capstock, an acrylic copolymer resin, won't "chalk" and provides 99.5 percent UV protection to the underlying vinyl siding," BASF says.

In addition, Rollex has developed a proprietary vinyl formulation that protects panels against warping from solar heat absorbed by dark colors.

Manchester vinyl siding has a subtle wood-grain texture with a low-gloss finish resembling exterior latex paint.

The siding offers Rollex's first "rollover"-style (folded-over) reinforced nailing hem, which effectively doubles the thickness of the vinyl around the fasteners for a secure installation. The vinyl itself is 0.044 inches (44 mils) thick, more than 25 per cent thicker than the Vinyl Siding Institute's requirement for certification.

Also new is a calibrated nail guide, laser imprinted along the hem, to help installers locate wall studs.

Manchester is available in three profiles: double-4", double- 41/2" Dutch lap, and double-5". The "legs" of the panel profiles project outwards 5/8-inch, providing rigidity for a straight appearance on the wall.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 16, 2022 -- Designer Doors Direct, LLC has announced that it has changed its name to Avalon Doors, LLC.

The meaning of Avalon is “The enchanted Isle where King Arthur and Genevieve were buried.” Its translation is “The Birthplace of Art.” We feel that our artists and craftsmen were better represented by this new name.

New Home Construction and Renovations Showing Nostalgia for Old World Flooring

As the home construction and remodeling season gets underway, architects, builders, and realtors see a booming demand from discerning homeowners, who are seeking the warmth and luxury of old-world wood floors in their new homes and remodeling projects. Whether it’s a floor made of old-growth eastern pine, or wide plank flooring of oak, cherry, heart pine, or other hardwoods, today’s homeowners are seeking this enduring look in record numbers.

(PRWEB) February 15, 2022 -- Take a stroll through the showroom of Kellogg Hardwoods, located in the picturesque New England town of Bethel, CT., and you will see an assortment of hardwoods, lumber and wide plank flooring that will satisfy anyone seeking the old-world look and feel of an antique, wide plank floor. Business is good these days at Kellogg Hardwoods, (http://www.kellogghardwoods.com) and at similar top tier lumber yards around the country, that specialize in both hardwood flooring and wide plank flooring. Some industry analysts point to a yearning for nostalgia in a post 9-11 world; others note that the trend has been growing since the 1970s. Whatever the cause, there is no doubt that the traditional wide plank floor is more in demand than ever.

Wide plank flooring can give a new home or remodeling project a look that is timeless, warm, and nostalgic, all at the same time. It comes in almost infinite variety, in a wide range of species, including oak, maple, cherry, birch, hickory, eastern pine, walnut, heart pine, and more. Each wood is prized for its individual look, feel, durability and coloration. Homeowners are specifying these kinds of floors both in new construction and in remodeling projects, for the unique and classic look, durability, and charm.

Wide plank hardwoods come from both antique and new lumber, and both varieties fill an important niche is this booming industry. Lumber such as the old-growth eastern pine at Kellogg Hardwoods is from trees more than 100 years old. Today, this old-growth wood may be reclaimed from sources as diverse as old barns, old houses, country lumber yards, or can be replicated from old growth trees. At Kellogg, planks of eastern pine can be found in widths of 12 – 20”, allowing the homeowner to literally recreate a stunning floor from the past.

With antique lumber in diminishing supply and high demand, it is not surprising that a viable industry has emerged that supplies wide plank flooring that is harvested from new, and specially-planted forests. These ecologically-friendly, sustainable forests, provide a steady and varied supply of wide plank flooring which, while not “antique” in the literal sense of the word, offer a beautiful and readily-available alternative to actual reclaimed wood. And the new-growth wide plank flooring offers the same antique look, rich feel, and lasting charm of its older counterpart. For today’s homeowner or architect, both types of wood provide a wide array of choices, to match any architecture, building detail, or interior design. Once installed, a wide plank floor will provide a look and feel that cannot be duplicated by any other material.

For more information about wide plank flooring, or any hardwood flooring questions, visit the Kellogg Hardwoods website at http://www.kellogghardwoods.com . Kellogg Hardwoods is located in Bethel, CT., just over an hour from New York City. They can arrange shipment of flooring to any U.S. destination. Telephone: Toll Free 877-721 WOOD (9663)

The Number One Fear of Public Restrooms ... Touching the Door to Exit the Restroom. The problem Has Been Solved by ASC Hygiene with Germ Free Door Handles

According to Kimblery-Clark over 55% of the people surveyed feared the door handles in Public Restrooms. Now thanks to ASC Hygiene the problem has been resolved with Germ Free Door Handles.

(PRWEB) February 10, 2022 -- ASC Hygiene BioGuard is employing AgION Technologies silver ion based antimicrobial science to produce a new protective finish for door pulls and plates that minimizes bacterial growth on the surface of the finished product. BioGuard is now available on ASC door pulls, push bars, and protection plates.

How it works…
The AgION antimicrobial compound is an inorganic material with the natural protection of silver. Encapsulated silver ions are slowly released from the antimicrobial compound to the treated surface where they interact with microorganisms on the surface of the product. This produces an effective shield against numerous strains of bacteria, yeast, fungi, and molds.
Proven Studies…

AgION antimicrobial protective finish stainless steel products have been field tested and recent studies have shown significant reduction in bacterial growth on push plates in a hospital setting. This cleaner surface was evident even in light of standard hospital cleaning procedures.

Durability…
AgION antimicrobial protective finish will remain effective for the useful life of our finish and does not cause any product discoloration.

Approvals…
AgION antimicrobial technology has been tested to be safe, including food contact applications. The AgION antimicrobial compound material has been EPA registered, NSF certified, and is FDA listed for food contact.

For more information and to learn more about Touch Free Hygiene such as Self Cleaning Toilet Seats and Touch Free Restrooms contact us.

SECOA, Inc. Forms New Lighting Systems Integration Group

SECOA, Inc., a Minnesota based stage equipment company, has announced the formation of a Lighting Systems Integration Group. This group will spearhead SECOA’s efforts to be the market leader in sales and service of performance lighting systems.

(PRWEB) February 7, 2022 -- While most in the theatrical world know SECOA for its stage rigging equipment, SECOA has supplied and integrated many lighting systems in venues across the country. "Although the name SECOA is synonymous with high quality stage rigging equipment and installations, our industry may not be as familiar with our expertise in lighting system integration.” commented Jim Kunz, president of SECOA. “SECOA’s comprehensive line of stage equipment and installations across the country enable us to give our customers the best lighting system – one that is seamlessly integrated from design to installation with all the stage equipment in the theatre.”

Ben Cox was brought on by SECOA to lead outside sales for the new lighting group. Cox previously worked in lighting system sales as a manufacturer’s representative, giving him experience in working with theatre consultants, architects, engineers, electrical contractors, and lighting designers. “I look forward to working with people to find the right stage lighting system for their venue- whether it a theatre, church, performance hall, or even a cafetorium.” said Cox.

SECOA is also expanding its lighting system service capabilities as an authorized service center for major lighting, dimming, and control system manufacturers. Jo Yeager, recently added to SECOA’s staff, will execute lighting system service. Yeager’s wide base of experience with both technical theatre and computer systems commend her to service both older equipment and the latest advances in theatrical lighting control.

Jerry Kraft and Cherie Gallinati will handle inside sales and project management for the Lighting Systems Integration Group. Veterans of SECOA and of technical theatre, they have worked in all facets of the theatrical contracting industry. Kraft quipped “Being a jack-of-all-trades gives me the ability to analyze a project and ensure that all disciplines work together throughout the project life cycle.”

Burglars despise barking dogs and alarm systems despise jumping cats, but with some initial thought, planning and new technology, your pet can now live in harmony with a home security system and you can continue to enjoy that welcomed feeling of security

(PRWEB) February 3, 2022 -- Home security systems have come a long way over the past few years and are now able to be designed with little impact on not only your lifestyle, but also on your pet's lifestyle. Older alarm systems were not very good at being able to identify the difference between a burglar entering a home or a cat walking to its litter box, but with new "pet-immune" motion sensors incorporated into your system's design, alarms can now allow both dogs and cats to enjoy their freedom without setting off any false alarms. False alarms can not only wake you out of a deep sleep or annoy neighbors during the day, but they can also generate unneeded visits from your local authorities.

These newer "pet-immune" motion sensors should be considered during the initial evaluation and design of a home's security system--not only for your current and future pet plans, but also for the next homeowner who could also benefit from a pet-friendly system.

Another great improvement, is with glassbreak sensors, which are also a great way to keep your pet's lifestyle intact while keeping your home's perimeter protected. These small electronic devices can be placed in a room and constantly monitor for any window breakage during the day or night, while continuing to let both you and your pet move throughout the home without the system needing a code to disarm.

With the recent introduction of wireless one-touch keychain remote controls (otherwise known as key fobs), the ease of arming or disarming your home security system without the need for those hard to remember codes has gotten a whole lot simpler. This can be particularly important when your system is armed and your pet needs a bathroom break or when you are returning home to a very excited pup looking for some immediate attention.

Pets play a significant role in many of our lives today and with a properly planned pet-friendly home security system, both you and your pet's lifestyles can be minimally impacted while still gaining that welcomed feeling of security.

Timothy Beisner is a 3rd generation security system expert and owner of Electro Alarms Company, Inc., a full-service alarm company offering security system design, installation and service since 1931 primarily serving the Northwest Ohio and Atlanta, Georgia regions. Tim spent a majority of his childhood and adolescence in the security system industry, after earning his bachelors of science degree in business administration and spending 10 years working in corporate finance, product management and marketing, he returned to the security industry to utilize his knowledge and better promote the "welcomed feeling of security" that a well designed alarm system can provide.

“We are very pleased that C.P. Morgan has incorporated THE NAILER” into their home construction”, said Andy Pizer, CEO of The Millennium Group and inventor of THE NAILER. “It has been difficult to get large builders to embrace green building and alternative building methods. C.P. Morgan is an outstanding builder in all regards. Their excellent reputation has been earned by improving people’s lives, listening attentively to human needs, and creating environments that encourage true community building. They honor a larger ecology and it shows in their customer service and home construction.”

Committed to exploring construction practices in order to increase employee productivity, C.P. Morgan field tested THE NAILER for months and listened carefully to their construction crews before switching from using metal drywall clips. Builders save up to $1200 per 2000 sq ft home by using THE NAILER.

Wal-Mart Using Frazier Masonry in Oakland, CA

The Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local #3 and Hod Carriers Local 166 in conjunction with other Alameda County Building Trades will begin picketing the construction of Wal-Mart in Oakland on Friday, February 4, 2022 at 6:00 am. We would like to express our concerns that Frazier Masonry does not meet area wage and benefit standards. The Wal-Mart is located on Edgewater Drive, Oakland, CA on the west side of 880 at the Hegenberger exit. It would be appropriate for representatives of the community to show their support by attending this job action.

(PRWEB) January 27, 2022 -- Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local #3 and Hod Carriers Local 166 are committed to continue job actions until the issues of area wage and benefit standards are appropriately addressed by Frazier Masonry and Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart only requires “contractors and subcontractors to follow all laws … and do the right thing” (www.walmartfacts.com, January 24, 2022). Wal-Mart fails to address the issue of local community standards and the economic impact of allowing the use of a contractor that pays substandard wages and benefits and employs out of state workers. Currently, Frazier Masonry is paying below the area wage and benefit standard, which does not appear to be the “right thing” to do. By admission through Wal-Mart’s policy regarding subcontractors, they (Wal-Mart) are supporting the degradation of the wage and benefit standards that the citizens of the community have spent years to establish. Frazier Masonry and Wal-Mart are not attempting to create jobs for local workers during construction. The out of state workers are not spending money locally or paying taxes here. Local 3 has approximately 200 members who live in the Oakland area who are professional masons that are more qualified to do this work.

Currently, Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local #3 health coverage is more than $7.25 per hour (approx. $14,000 per year) and our retirees just received a 40% increase in their premiums. Union workers are indirectly subsidizing companies like Frazier and Wal-Mart who don’t fully cover insurance for their employees and dependents. Frazier Masonry only provides partial coverage for its employees and no coverage for dependents.

As you know Wal-Mart is no friend to it’s employees or the men and women who build their facilities. Their disregard for the local community seems to contradict their latest public relations campaign and creates an environment that will exploit the standards of wages and benefits of the people that live in the community. Wal-Mart will move into the neighborhood, devour our local businesses and lower community living standards.

Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers represents approximately 3,000 Bricklayers/Stonemasons, Tile Layers and Finishers, Pointer Cleaner Caulkers, Marble Setters and Finishers, Terrazzo Mechanics and Finishers, and Refractory Bricklayers who work various aspects of the industry in the Northern 46 counties of California.

We ask you to attend our action on Friday, February 4, 2022 to show support in defending the area wage and benefit standards that the citizens of this community have established. Please contact our office as soon as possible so that we may meet with you regarding this issue.
