New Products

Mayer Equity, Inc.
Westbury, N.Y.

Mayer Equity's new glass block connector facilitates the erection of curved or straight glass block panels. The Accu-Speed Glass Block Connector, constructed of high-density polyethylene, are shaped like plus (+) signs for maximum strength and accuracy. In addition, they ensure uniform alignment and spacing of the blocks while imparting structural rigidity and reinforcement. With Accu-Speed, the weight of the above blocks no longer bears down directly on the mortar, but is instead supported by the connectors. An entire panel can be built from sill to head uninterrupted, while cutting back in time — thereby in labor costs — by more than 50%. For more information, call (516) 333-0101.

Columbia, Mo.

GOLZ-USA announces the arrival of the high-frequency drilling and sawing system for the professional contractor. The GOLZ system allows the use of multiple tools with a single power box converter. By converting standard 115v and 460v three-phase power to 1000Hz-high frequency, the operator will have a significant increase in production and power. The 110v-28 amp system converts to 3100w of power and the 460v three-phase, 13-amp, water-cooled system converts to 8000w. Either system can adapt to a hand saw, hand drill or four-speed drill rig. The brushless armatures spin at 30,000 rpm and have a 20:1 gear reduction to produce high power in a very light tool. For more information, visit www.golzusa.com or call (573) 445-2683.
