New Products

Tulsa, Okla.

With an optimum blend of speed and torque, the Hilti UH 650 1/2-inch universal hammer drill generates a precise amount of power — plus it's compact and comfortable, so it's ideal for a wide range of applications. With two speeds, a variable speed trigger, and forward and reverse functions, it provides the ideal ratio of revolutions per minute (rpm) to torque, and better work control and accuracy for optimal drilling in each application. It's perfect for drilling small diameter holes for anchoring in masonry, as well as through-holes in wood or steel. For more information, call (800) 879-8000 or visit www.us.hilti.com.

Pittsburgh, Pa.

MSA's vented AdvanceTM Caps have six large cooling vents along the crown for improved air circulation and comfort.

MSA's Advance helmets in both vented and non-vented styles come with either a four- or six-point Staz-On® or Fas-Trac® ratchet suspension. The helmets are manufactured in the U.S. of molded polyethylene. Custom imprinting and a full line of accessories make the Advance helmets even more customized.

Muth Company, LLC
Sheboygan, Wis.

Muth Mirror Systems has developed a new upgrade module for its automotive line of Signal® Mirrors. The Heated Mirrors on Demand (H-MOD) allows owners of vehicles with Signal Mirror kits to install an after-market heated mirror option. Heated mirrors offer additional safety by clearing mirrors of frost, snow or condensation to allow a driver to have a clearer view, and thus a safer driving experience. The driver can activate the H-MOD by simply flipping a switch, which can be mounted on the dashboard for easy access. Professional installation is recommended. For more information about the H-MOD and Signal Mirrors, call Muth Mirror Systems at (800) 844-6616, e-mail sales@muthco.com or visit www.muthco.com.

Stone Mountain Brick Company Inc.
Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada

Stone Mountain Brick announces its first two brick veneer textures: smooth, a virtually textureless brick veneer with an even, silky face; and antique, with a slightly ragged feel and a historic, aged look. Composed of concrete, fiber and color pigments, they have the look and feel of natural brick products at a fraction of the thickness, weight and cost. At 1/2" thick and weighing two pounds-12 ounces per square foot of wall, these veneers can be added to almost any project and do not require additional footing, wall ties or foundations. Brick veneers are available in 11 standard colors (custom colors available), flat and corner pieces for ease of installation, and a 30-year limited warranty. For more information, call (888) 955-3571 or visit www.stonemountainbrick.com.
