A flexible sensor faucet

Optima Lino faucets are equipped with the latest sensor-operated, water-saving plumbing technology. Models with the Integral Spout Temperature Mixer, which are intended for hospital rooms, executive restrooms, and other locations where people regularly use the faucets, include a lever that lets users adjust the water temperature. When users press a button on the spout of select models, they tap into user-directed modes, including “continuous run” and “temporary off.” This adjustment can also be converted to a fixed setting. Single-supply faucet models, which are appropriate for public restrooms, deliver water at a pre-set temperature.

Keep your fabric duct inflated

DuctSox has answered designers' requests by introducing a suspension system that perpetuates the preferred inflated appearance for fabric ductwork, even when HVAC air handlers are idle. The 3x1 Suspension System includes a single-tension cable and framework of lightweight, sculpted aluminum brackets that support 16- to 48-inch-diameter DuctSox systems. Combined, the cable and hangers offer support at three positions, greatly reducing the inflation surge common to fabric duct systems. Besides improved aesthetics, the suspension system offers fast installation—the brackets quickly snap into D-clasps that are factory-sewn onto the DuctSox ducts.
