Lakeville, Minn.

The quality of work and level of production displayed by any tradesman is directly related to the tools that they use to get the job done. When 50% of the total project cost is labor, give your masons the best tools available and you will get higher production. Because GatorbackTM mortarboards don't suck the moisture from mortar, they can increase the boardlife of mortar by 20-25 minutes. As a result, your masons are consistently using a more workable mortar AND your tenders are not wasting time "shaking up mud" throughout the job. Not only are Gatorback boards extremely tough, they increase productivity, EVERY DAY! For more information, contact Brian at (612) 810-9365 or go to www.gatorback.net.

VERSA-LOK Retaining Wall Systems
Oakdale, Minn.

VERSA-LOK Retaining Wall Systems has introduced a new version of its VERSA-Grid synthetic geogrid that's designed for use with segmental retaining walls up to six feet in height. VERSA-Grid 1.5 is lighter than other VERSA-Grid products and comes in convenient 4'x50' rolls. VERSA-Grid 1.5 is made from high-tenacity, multifilament polyester fibers and has no memory, so it lays flat. It has bidirectional strength, which allows it to be installed either perpendicular or parallel to the wall face when geogrid lengths of four feet or less are specified. For further information about VERSA-LOK products, call (800) 770-4525 or visit www.versa-lok.com.
