54 Medical Construction & Design | NOV EMBER / DECEMBER 2017 | MCDM AG.COM Newly Updated Mipolam Affinity Offers Flexibility for Healthcare Interiors The new Mipolam Affi nity homogeneous sheet fl ooring from Gerfl or USA features a non-directional design available in 28 tone-on-tone colors. Affi nity's color pal- ette matches that of Mipolam Accord, allowing designers to coordinate fl oor- ing patterns with the same color palette for a seamless aesthetic. Affi nity has a tone-on-tone directional design pattern; Accord is a semi-directional, marbleized design. Beyond updated aesthetics, the fl ooring proves to be a sustain- able and safe choice for healthcare applications. With close to zero VOCs and its Evercare no-wax maintenance protocol, Mipolam Affi nity provides the best indoor air quality to staff and patients. It's naturally bacteriostatic, helping to prevent the spread of common hospital- acquired infections. ID#108 CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS Reusable Protection System Guards High-End Doors Against Dirt, Debris 1-2-3 Door Shield by Construction Protection Systems LLC is a reusable door protection system. The patented design allows the system to compactly fold together, protecting the inside faces of the product from dirt and debris common to construction sites. Non-adhesive saddle tape and Velcro edge fastener system and the abrasion-resistant inner liner hold the secret to its ability to protect delicately fi nished surfaces of high-end doors. The edge fasteners employ a specially designed heavy-du- ty hook-and-loop system that provides for quick installation and easy removal for re-use. The factory-applied inner liner serves as the fi rst barrier to ensure that sensitive fi nished surfaces of wood and hollow metal doors are not subjected to damage or abrasion. ID#107 DOORS & HARDWARE Electric Latch Provides Quiet Solution to Operational Noise on Exit Devices Powered by a motor-driven latch retrac- tion, the Von Duprin Quiet Electric Latch provides a quieter solution than traditional exit devices. QEL provides electronic control of an exit device for locations where limited op- erational noise is desired. It requires less power than other electric latch products, and can be wired 800 feet when a 12 gauge wire is used. The QEL can be confi gured to electroni- cally retract the latch for an extended period of time to allow free entrance and exit. The latch is available on all Von Duprin 98/99, 33A/35A and 94/95 Series exit devices. ID#106 Products For more information on these products, visit New Polyflor Product Offering Available from Ecore Commercial Ecore has refi ned its offering of Polyfl or resilient vinyl fl ooring products in an effort to streamline selection and facilitate faster product fulfi llment. The updated portfolio includes 16 new homogenous, heterogeneous and slip-resistant vinyl surfaces, as well as premium fl ooring from the Expona luxury vinyl tile collection. "Polyfl or is an internationally renowned fl ooring manufacturer with an extremely large product line," said Bo Barber, vice president of market- ing and business development for Ecore, the U.S. distributor for the 100-year-old UK-based company. "Ecore narrowed down the offering in an effort to provide a better focus on the products supported. This has also allowed us to bring in substantial inventory of key products and colors, something Ecore has not previously done." ID#109 LIGHTING New Modular Downlights Feature Built-In Ingress Protection Kenall has introduced a new family of 6-inch modular downlights designed to stay tightly sealed and perform effi ciently for years. The downlights are ideal for a variety of applications, including areas where damp and wet location listings just aren't enough, such as hospitals, behavioral health facilities and more. One simple, modular design ac- commodates both regressed and fl ush lens trim options, and ingress protec- tion is standard. The lights may be specifi ed with either regressed or fl ush lenses; both ship in two phases for ease of installation. The rough-in frame is shipped fi rst and adapts to various ceiling thickness for a perfect fi t. The trim housing section can be installed once the ceiling is fi nished; torsion springs or captive fasteners provide a positive seal to the ceiling surface. ID#105 FLOORING
