Child Safety … Is It Worth the Money?

Kids. You've got to love the little rug rats. It's so much fun to watch as they scoot around the floor. For years, my wife ran a childcare service from our home.

We also have three grandkids of our own, all of them girls. The oldest is seven (going on 15) and the other two are four-year-old twins.

Lighting to Help Keep You Safe and Clean

Don’t look now, but those new light fixtures in your lab, office or cafeteria may be doing a lot more than illuminating the space.

They may also be actively disinfecting your immediate surroundings, suppressing the growth of a wide range of common bacteria, molds, fungi and yeast that can lead to individual and public health risks.

Floor Boxes (and Floor Box Accessories)

It was during a lecture in the school auditorium where I came across my first floor box. I was bored to death and looking around for something to pass the time. When I glanced down, I noticed a brass device on the floor beneath me.

LITEISTRY Line from Prescolite Promises A “Quiet Ceiling” and Uniform Look

Prescolite, a Hubbell Lighting brand, has announced a new series of architectural downlighting it promises will help designers create a truly “quiet ceiling” in commercial applications.

Quiet ceilings, the company explains, have do to with lighting fixtures being unobtrusive in their own right. With a quiet ceiling, the light coming from the fixture is what is highlighted and noticed, not the physical structure of the luminaire or fixture itself.

Temporary Power in a Box

It’s time to take a permanent stance on Temporary Power.

Temporary power, that is, such as is needed at construction job sites, for storm recovery or rental use at outdoor events and concerts.

These short-term power sources must be just as safe, reliable and durable as permanent, hard-wired electric networks, says Molex, an industrial solutions provider that offers its Super-Safeway Portable Power System as a plug-n-play single box device to do just that.

Adding Corrosion Protection to Liquidtight Fittings with PVC Coatings

Steel fittings in a variety of formulations have been liquidtight raceway products of choice since the early days of electrical distribution. When these products have been galvanized, a thin zinc coating offers corrosion resistance for use in many outdoor and exterior applications where non-galvanized steel might otherwise rust through. But electrical wiring requires extra protection in more significantly corrosive environments. So, contractors need to consider materials that offer more advanced protection in settings where chemicals, salt spray and other damaging substances are common.
