CyberLock Electronic Lock System by Videx

Because it requires replacement of the lock cylinders only, this electronic access system is easy to install in existing buildings. It provides an audit trail of lock openings and of unauthorized entry attempts. The audit information is stored in the locks and keys. The electronic lock cylinder has no keyway to pick or vandalize, and the key cannot be copied at the local hardware store. Each key can be programmed to access specific locks on selected days and hours.

LogiSon Acoustic Network by K.R. Moeller.

LogiSon networked technology provides users with the flexibility to easily adjust their soundmasking system. The network provides paging and music, eliminating the need to purchase separate systems, and doesn’t require additional sound generators, amplifiers, or equalizers. Contractors aren’t needed to rewire the system; because it’s digital, it can be upgraded more economically than if new physical equipment was needed. If included in facility design, extra insulation, layers of drywall or plenum barriers, and high-spec or permanent walls around private offices can be eliminated, reducing HVAC zone requirements and noise disruptions while increasing speech privacy.

SPIDERfire by Rheem-Ruud.

The SPIDERfire line of condensing-type commercial water heaters uses a “wet base” approach for the lower portion of the flue system, suspending the first two legs of the flue network in hot water instead of connecting them to the bottom of the tank, which eliminates hot spots and premature metal fatigue. This design also boosts energy efficiency because heat isn’t lost through the bottom of the tank. The line can be operated on natural gas or LP and can be installed as a single-pipe, power-vented product or as a two-pipe, power direct-vented product.
