Hohmann & Barnard
Hauppauge, N.Y.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

The X-SEALTM anchor is the next generation veneer anchor from H&B. The X-SEAL anchor improves upon the DW-10-X® anchor by moving the horizontal pronged legs in from each end, enabling the back plate portion of the anchor to effectively seal the wallboard/insulation. This helps to maintain the integrity of the vapor barrier and prevents the ingress of air and moisture through the sheathing. The pronged legs are now also rib-stiffened and oriented closer to each other than on the original DW-10-X, enhancing the compressive strength by over 20%. For more information, call (631) 234-0600, or visit www.h-b.com.

Lawrence, Kan.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

The Sure Klean® Hi-Flow 1000 masonry washing machine uses lower psi and more gallons of water per minute than standard pressure washers. The machine offers 1,000 psi, which is unlikely to damage masonry even in the hands of an inexperienced user; 6-8 gallons per minute output; a durable, water-lubricated Stingray pump that can stay in bypass mode indefinitely without damage; and an 8 hp OHV recoil Honda motor. During recent time trials, the Hi-Flow 1000 fully pre-wet a 4' x 8' section of concrete wall in 20 seconds, compared to a pressure washer's 100 seconds.

Thorogood / Weinbrenner Shoe Co. Inc
Merrill, Wisc.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Work footwear has long provided protection for the foot with the traditional steel toecap; however, metatarsal protection has finally come of age with the Thorogood I-METTM. A breakthrough in safety and protection, I-MET features the only internal metatarsal guard that's completely integrated with the steel toecap. Permanently locked in place to prevent rolling or floating upon impact, MetGuard flexes with your foot to maintain all-day comfort. Memory foam padding between the MetGuard and the wearer provides cushioning and helps absorb impacts to the foot and instep. The outsole is rubber with a 90 heel, while the midsole is lightweight, compression molded polyurethane. For more information, call (800) 826-0002, or visit www.weinbrennerusa.com.
