JOHNSON CONTROLS launches the next-generation Grinnell G-Fire One-Bolt Figure 579A Coupling with customized gaskets for more secure fitting on fire suppression pipe joints. The grooved, rigid coupling is ready to connect right out of the box, providing a fast and smooth installation experience. In addition to speeding up installation, the One-Bolt 579A Coupling features center-stop gaskets customized to specific coupling sizes to help ensure proper positioning. The 1.25- and 1.5-inch coupling sizes keep their proven, powder-lubricated gasket, ideal for small pipe diameters, while 2- through 4-inch sizes use a redesigned self-lubricating gasket intended to optimize protection against rolls or pinches. A low-profile spine allows installing couplings in tighter spaces, while 360-degree pipe contact ensures a truly rigid joint.

KRESS is advancing the transition from gas-powered commercial lawn equipment for professional operations with the introduction of innovative battery-powered equipment. Despite a growing environmental awareness, commercial landscape professionals and facilities managers in the industrial channel have been forced to accept high-emission, gas-powered equipment as the only economical option that provides them with the performance and runtime required to complete a full day’s work. Battery-powered equipment simply has not been a viable alternative due to the expense of multiple battery packs, the hassle of overnight charging, and the high cost to replace dead battery packs after only a few months of daily re-charging. Kress is changing that: now commercial landscapers and facilities managers can even save money and time by switching from gas to battery power. Based on the current price of gas, a typical operation can recoup the entire purchase price of their Kress battery-powered equipment in less than one season.

BRADLEY’S new Top Fill Multi-feed Soap System, available with all WashBar® handwashing models saves time and money. The innovative top-fill soap system features a large capacity 1.3-gallon (5.0 L-) tank that can supply soap to up to three WashBars at once. Perfect for medium- to high-traffic commercial applications with multiple handwashing stations, the top-fill multi-feed soap system boosts maintenance and efficiency in a number of ways. A single, easy-to-access top-fill hub allows staff to refill multiple soap reservoirs at one time. For added flexibility, the system accommodates either foam or liquid universal soap. A smart sense system with LED indicator on the fill port illuminates to indicate when the tank begins to run low on soap or battery power, taking the guesswork out of maintenance. Smart sensors also provide audible and visual indicators to prevent overfilling and mess. The fill-port hub is made of durable chrome-plated brass construction to withstand heavy usage in busy restroom environments. Its tamper-resistant screw discourages vandalism attempts.
