A variety of designs, lengths and angles are available that can be applied for both the toilet and the shower. Installing a Luxury Grab Bar with a JACLO hand shower attached to it allows for versatility in height for the water. New grab bars include pieces that match the recently launched Contempo and Cubix collections. #1 ❏ 18 Mass notifi cation system features centralized dashboard Desigo Mass Notifi cation from Siemens' Building Tech- nologies Division is a new, fully integrated multi- modal commu- nication system that can be used in a single building or across a large campus for relaying a series of emergency and non-emergency messages. The mass notifi cation system is compatible with Siemens' Desigo CC building management station. It blends a clear user interface with predefi ned scenarios and customizable messages. Operators use a centralized dashboard and a consistent workfl ow-based interface to manage, track and review multiple emergency incidents.

The 30-cycle rating in the 600-1200 ampacity range for selective coordi- nation designs has a withstand close-on rating of 30 kA at 480V. The automatic transfer switches are ideal for larger, more complex projects where the fault cur- rent on the emergency system is high, where the breaker instantaneous trip setting is defeated in order to selec- tively coordinate, or where transfer switches are served by ANSI Switch- gear, which also has 30-cycle WCR. #1 ❏ 16 Preserve nurse-call cables with BlackJack by HatchMed Nurses are great with patients, but can be tough on equipment.

The cables can be used with Hill- Rom, Stryker, Linet and CHG hospital beds, function with any nurse-call system and include a 5-year warranty. Minimize patient fall risks, preserve patient commu- nication and save the engineering budget with BlackJack.
