    Caroma Urinal in BuildingGreen Top 10

    The Cube³ Ultra urinal from Caroma has been selected by BuildingGreen as one of the Top 10 Green Building Products for 2007. This high-efficiency urinal introduces a liquid-sensing automatic flushing mechanism that detects usage rather than motion to activate the electronic flush valve. An integrated logic system prevents accidental flushing to ensure water savings. The flush volume is a low one pint (0.5 liters). The high-gloss vitreous china surface resists discoloration and makes cleaning easy. Concealed components create a sleek aesthetic and reduce the risk of vandalism, while hands-free operation improves hygiene.

    Bracket-Mounted Gutter System

    The RHEINZINK® snap-lock bracket system offers a secure gutter-mounting option that is quick and easy to install. The C-profile bracket-mounting rail fastens easily onto the fascia or roof edge. Gutter brackets then snap into the rail. The system supports half-round gutters, which snap into the brackets. RHEINZINK gutters and downspouts consist of a titanium-zinc alloy that is 100-percent recyclable and has been used extensively throughout Europe for decades. They are available in three finishes: Bright Rolled, Pre-Weathered Pro Blue Gray, and Pre-Weathered Pro Graphite Gray.

    Modular "Silvus" Sconce

    Ivalo Lighting introduces Silvus, a modular LED lighting-fixture family designed by Roger Duffy, FAIA, and his design studio at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM). Silvus evokes the qualities of light filtered through a forest canopy. The diaphanous lens, clusters of light points, branching stainless-steel support, and carved interior surfaces combine to create a laminar effect. Digitally controlled LED lamps are available in white, red, green, blue, mixed-color, or the digital "millions of colors" option. These modular units may be used alone or in a group or field pattern (pictured). Each unit measures 24 x 13 x 6.25 inches (61 x 33 x 15.9 centimeters). For interior and exterior applications.
