    Bendheim Wall Systems and Längle of Austria Introduce Compression Fitting Glass Rainscreens

    Bendheim Wall Systems, Inc. has partnered with Längle of Austria to introduce first-of-their-kind decorative glass rainscreen systems. The dependable, fully tested systems can completely change the look of a building while offering a range of functional benefits for new and retrofit construction, including bird-friendly decorative glass options.

    The new rainscreen systems surpassed the ASTM and AAMA test requirements for water penetration, pressure equalization, air leakage, and structural performance. Unlike other systems, the compression fittings require no cut-outs or holes in the glass, affording superior wall strength and low fabrication costs. They offer easy setup and patented quick assembly methods. Also unique to the system, individual glass panels can be quickly and easily replaced without having to deglaze surrounding panels (click here for video demonstration).

    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.
