ID#107 Products For more information on these products, visit DOORS & HARDWARE New Ergonomic Levers Designed in Collaboration with Gensler Allegion has launched a line of levers designed with Gensler. The Schlage M Collection ergonomic levers are optimized for comfort and functionality, making operation more comfortable to the wrist and hands. Ergonomic design fo- cuses on human interactions with products to reduce discomfort. There are many benefi ts, includ- ing improved well-being and door operating effi ciencies. The ME1 ergonomic lever is apt for healthcare facilities. It is designed to be soft to the touch, us- ing gentle curves that contour with the hand for easy actuation. Ideal for senior living facilities, the ME3 easy-access lever is slightly larger to address the needs of the active, yet aging population. The thicker lever allows for easy grasping, while the lever angle positions the large gripping surface in a way that reduces actuation force. ID#108 HELIPAD Helipads Designed, Built Green Lily Helipads are "designed and built green," capturing all aircraft fl uids such as jet fuel and de-icing liquid. This design eliminates the need for the use of ice-melt chemicals. A built-in heating system automatically provides a snow and ice melt component for the entire landing pad. This ensures "slip-and-fall" free access on the helipad and the walk- ways leading to the emergency room. Other features include a frangible windsock. Unlike conventional windsocks, this new frangible windsock is designed to break apart if there is accidental con- tact with a helicopter. Internal illumination within the frangible windsock and state- of-the-art LED perimeter lighting around the helipad ensure superior nighttime vis- ibility. All landing lighting can be remotely activated by any incoming aircraft. ID#104 FABRICS & TEXTILES New High-Performance Upholstery Fabric Introduced A new super strong and durable fabric, engineered to be environmentally responsible, Sta-Kleen Polycarbonate has been launched by The Mitchell Group.

The fabric will initially be off ered in fi ve patterns: Donegal, a two-tone weave pattern in 15 colors; Matrix, a linen look in 29 colors; Sammie, a solid pattern in 21 colors; Sawcut, a raw-cut wood grain design in 19 colors and Sparkle, a geometric pattern in 17 colors.
