Concrete wall tile makes statement Contourz from LUNADA BAY TILE is a satin matte tactile collection of con- crete tiles in a soft color palette. Bringing together modern shapes with artistry and engineering, the 3-D tiles transform interior and exterior walls into sculptures with vertical or horizontal installations. The collection is 8-mm thick and consists of nine shapes—shown is Trifecta, a 3-D triangular tile with intertwining patterns of slopes and curved lines—available in 18 colors ranging from warm and cool grays to shades of taupe and brown. Circle 13 on inquiry card Sleekness of metal for stair systems L.J. SMITH STAIR SYSTEMS introduces its Linear Collection in response to metal's current appeal. The Linear Collection includes the Metal Panel System and Cable System with Metal Newels. Boasting a "welded" look, the Metal Panel System is available for open tread stairways, kneewall stairways and level run applications. Its pre-assembled panels come with a standard low sheen black finish, but additional powder-coated and Pantone paint colors can be ordered. The Cable System pairs marine-grade stainless steel cable with metal newel options for unimpeded views from stair- ways or decks. Circle 12 on inquiry card Wood finish dries, resists rain in 60 minutes Joining BEHR coatings, the Quick-Dry Oil Base Wood Finish can be used for exterior wood surfaces such as decks, siding and fences. Drying in only 60 minutes due to its advanced oil formula, the finish requires only a single coat and can be applied to damp wood within one to three hours of rainfall, rinsing or removal of standing water. Available at The Home Depot stores nationwide, five colors are offered: clear, cedar naturaltone, redwood, chocolate and cordovan brown. Circle 11 on inquiry card App designed to streamline solar projects SOLARUP is an app developed to help solar profession- als and homeowners visualize PV solar energy solutions with its advanced CAD feature. Developed by Earth Wise LLC, the app allows users to determine which size system a property needs and which size available roof space can accommodate, thus simplifying the solar buying and selling process. Users can request an optional solar proposal within the app. Available for iOS devices through the App Store, the app will soon also be offered for Android devices through Google Play. Circle 9 on inquiry card Panels simplify interior thin- brick installation SPEEDYMASON Peel n' Stick panels install directly over existing sheetrock or wall sheathing and, once the first panel is level, there is no need to run string lines. Adhesive is already applied to a panel, and any thin brick product can be used on them. Install an interior accent wall in six steps: fasten the 16- by 48-in. panel to the wall, remove its release liner, lay out the thin brick, place the bricks on the panel, grout the joints and, finally, strike joints. The grout locks around the brick into the Peel n' Stick panel. Circle 10 on inquiry card PRODUCTS 56 July 2018 QR QualifiedRemodeler.com What's New
