Fluke Infrared Camera
Fluke offers a full range of infrared (IR) cameras that can detect faulty mechanical and electrical systems, missing or inadequate insulation, and imbalances in HVAC systems. These durable, ergonomic IR cameras are suitable for extended work in the field or where space is limited, such as in attics or crawl spaces.

Wishbone Site Furnishings

Wishbone Site Furnishings
Wishbone Industries manufactures furnishings, including benches, picnic tables, trash cans, planters, and bike racks from 100% pre- and postconsumer recycled plastic. They use recycled plastic lumber rather than wood because it doesn't require pressure treatment chemicals, paint, or stain; it resists moisture and rot; and it doesn't generate splinters. “Super Durable” powder coatings help the products maintain their looks.

Pearl’s Premium Grass Seed

Pearl’s Premium Grass Seed
Pearl's Premium is a grass seed blend of five different fescues that creates a slow-growing, drought-tolerant lawn. This grass doesn't require added fertilizers and won't need irrigation either, since Pearl's Premium roots extend as deep as 12 inches into the soil, where they can usually find enough moisture. Appropriate for use in northern climates, these grasses can reduce maintenance, too, since they only need to be mowed about once a month.

Therma- Fuser VAV Diffusers
Therma-fuser diffusers automatically adjust to room temperature to regulate the air delivery in variable air volume (VAV) systems. As a room warms, wax in the Therma-fuser thermostat expands, moving a piston that opens the dampers. As the room cools, the wax contracts and a spring closes the damper. Simple! There are no electronic parts or wiring, they require no maintenance, and they’re out of the way to avoid tampering.

CGAM Aquastream Air-Cooled Chiler

CGAM Aquastream Air-Cooled Chiler
Trane's CGAM Aquastream air-cooled scroll chiller can provide 20 to 120 tons of cooling capacity and its quiet fans make it suitable for use in school and hospitals. It's particularly energy-efficient at part load and comes with an optional factory-installed heat exchanger…so the waste heat from the condenser can be used to heat water. The system can be configured to create ice during off-peak hours for cooling during peak demand.
