    Dornbracht Turns Heads with a New Kitchen Faucet

    Pivot, designed by longtime Dornbracht collaborator Sieger Design, is the company's latest addition to its iconic Tara Ultra series. Deck-mounted and an ideal solution for kitchen islands, this articulated combination faucet and pot filler has an unusually long arm projection of 21-2/3 inches and provides hot and cold water anywhere within the 360-degree radius where it rotates. It means pots can conveniently go straight from the cabinet to the stovetop without a stopover in the sink. While its sculptural form is a pleasing aesthetic, the beauty of Pivot is its exceptional practicality. Available in Dornbracht's polished chrome, platinum matte and platinum finishes.

    Walker Textures™ Traction — Anti-slip acid-etched glass

    Walker Textures™ Traction is an all-glass flooring solution, using no coatings, paints or appliqués susceptible to chipping or flaking off. The result is attractive and durable anti-slip surfaces, characterized by striking designs. The unique combination of opacity and translucency provides for full privacy, while still allowing for maximum circulation of light between floors. Traction glass provides a high slip resistant coefficient based on two recognized test methods namely: ANSI/NFSI B101.1 and ASTM C1028. The tests were conducted by the Tile Council of North America, an independent testing facility. To order Walker Textures samples go to

    XSP Series LED Street Lights from Cree

    Powered by BetaLED® Technology and designed for a lifetime over 100,000 hours, the XSP Series street lights deliver up to 100 lumens per watt and up to double the lumens per dollar of previous generations of LED street lights. An ideal replacement for outdated traditional sources, the XSP series provides value while replacing high wattage HPS applications. The XSP series combines advanced LED sources, driver technologies, and optics while cutting energy consumption up to nearly 50%. Years of maintenance-free performance are possible thanks to a thermal management design that uses a heat sink to draw heat away from LEDs, maximizing performance and longevity.

    Aqua2use® Greywater Diverter

    The Aqua2use® greywater diverter collects gray water from showers, lavatory sinks, laundry, and baths and diverts it for use in lawn and garden irrigation. Its four-stage filtration system is contained in a 21-gallon (70.5-liter) high-density polyethylene (HDPE) tank measures 24 x 15 x 20 inches (61 x 38 x 51 centimeters). An integral control box activates the pump when the tank is full, distributing water to irrigation lines. Cleaning of the 15,000-gallon-capacity filters is needed only once every four to six months.
