NewProducts Demolition Power Surface Prep Brokk AB, the world’s leading manufacturer of remote controlled demolition machines, has added the compact Brokk 60 to its lineup. At 34.4 inches, the Brokk 60 is the smallest remote-controlled demolition machine available. Its weight, only 1,100 pounds, makes it ideal to use where space is limited in industries such as construction, demolition, metal processing, tunneling and nuclear. Brokk also has a diesel version, the 400D. Merkrete Pro Patch XF is a fast-setting Portland cement based skim coating compound for leveling embossed floors and for finishing and smoothing most interior subfloors. Pro Patch XF is specifically formulated to smooth and finish substrates prior to the installation of vinyl sheet goods, vinyl composition tile (VCT), wood floors, carpet and glued-down installations and ceramic and stone tile. Digital Timeclock The ExakTime Mobile smartphone app tracks labor and helps eliminate wasted time and costs associated with paper time cards. The app recorded more than 15 million clock-ins in 2012 alone, across six different continents. It tracks employees, job sites and cost codes, as well as advanced measures including GPS coordinates, equipment, materials, budgets and more. Colorful Siding CertainTeed ”Monogram” 46 vinyl siding offers the widest low-gloss color selection in the industry with a designer palette of 33 solid colors, eight wood-tone blends and more than 40 coordinating trim colors. The product is manufactured with CertainTeed’s TrueTexture™ rough cedar finish molded from real cedar boards. The siding also uses STUDfinder™ and CertiLock™ self-aligning, post-formed positive lock designed for accurate and secure installation. Rooftop Option The Trane IntelliPak™ I unitary rooftop systems, with eFlex™ variable-speed technology, deliver an integrated energy efficiency ratio (IEER) of up to 16.9. Typical rooftop units operate at peak cooling capacity 2 to 5 percent of the time and are “off-peak” 95 to 98 percent of the time. To improve efficiency in part-load conditions, Trane eFlex’s system matches unit capacity to demand levels. | 83
