    Designer Cabinet Hardware

    DuVerre Hardware introduces the Arroyo Collection, an elegant and original new series of cabinet knobs and pulls created by award-winning designer William Harvey. The slim channels that define the silhouette suggest an abstraction of an arroyo, or water channel. Suitable for fine furniture or cabinetry, the die-cast hardware is made entirely of post-consumer recycled aluminum. The new line is available in four sizes and three finishes: Satin Nickel, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and White.

    LED Track Lighting

    Nora Lighting introduces Cori, an LED track lighting fixture that uses multiple LEDs to produce higher lumens and beam spreads without creating forward heat. The fixture includes an integral driver unit with a die-cast aluminum head. Styled fins dissipate heat to extend the unit's performance life. With a slim, low-profile design, the fixture is well suited for commercial, retail, art, and jewelry applications. Available in 12 watts or 23 watts, with color temperatures of 3000K (warm white) or 4200K (cool white). Heads are compatible with H-style tracks; adapters are available for J and L tracks. Finishes include black, while, and silver.

    Solar Thermal Storage Tank

    Lochinvar® introduces the Strato-Therm+ Solar Thermal Storage Tank, a space-saving unit that also serves as an indirect water heater and a hydronic buffer tank. It takes advantage of the natural buoyancy of heated water to efficiently stratify hydronic heating water. Solar thermal energy is introduced to the storage tank via the adjacent copper-tube spherical heat exchanger. Potable water is drawn through the corrugated stainless steel coil in the tank, where it is indirectly heated on demand for domestic use. The space heating system accesses the hottest water for distribution to heat emitters. Available in nine models, ranging from 125 to 900 gallons (473 to 3,407 liters).



    Aerogel Insulation

    Spaceloft® insulation from Aspen Aerogels is a flexible, nanoporous blanket insulation that combines a silica aerogel with reinforcing fibers. It offers extremely low thermal conductivity, with R-values of up to 10.0 per inch. The insulation is hydrophobic yet breathable, and is suitable for use in interior and exterior walls, floors, and roofs. The leading application is the internal retrofit of solid masonry walls in older buildings. The insulation can be applied directly to existing walls and covered with standard drywall. Also available laminated to drywall gypsum board. Available in thicknesses of 0.2 and 0.4 inches (5 and 10 millimeters).

    School and Sports Seating

    The Core™ chair from American Seating is designed for classrooms, auditoriums, and indoor sports and entertainment venues. Available in floor-mount or riser-mount applications, the chair comes in six widths and two heights. The copolymer seat, back, and arm covers are durable and easy to clean, and the gravity-lift seat uses a counterbalance weight to return to the upright position. The plastic backs, seat bottoms, and back covers come in black, dark neutral, and iron ore colors. Upgrade options include solid wood arm caps and plywood veneer back panels. More than 50% post-consumer recycled materials by weight, exceeding LEED MR 4 requirements. Recyclable.
