Circle 13 on inquiry card Sink blends function, artistry NATIVE TRAILS ' Rhapsody Sink provides an artistic twist on the tra- ditional farmhouse style. Created by coppersmiths using age-old tech- niques, the farmhouse sink showcases hand-hammered detailing and a bowed apron front. Its deep basin allows for a range of kitchen tasks, thus the sink ensures functionality while making a statement. Two finishes are available: Brushed Nickel, a warm-toned silver color that has been hand-brushed for a soft, textured finish; and Antique Copper (shown), a rich brown mottling achieved through a hand-applied patina process. Circle 15 on inquiry card Porcelain tile presents visual texture Through the application of multi- dimensional graphics during the manufacturing process, CROSSVILLE achieves unique visual depth for its Astral Plane porcelain tile. Available in three rectified field tile sizes, plus two mosaic options, the tile can be mixed and matched for a range of interior installations and exterior vertical applications in commer- cial and residential settings. The collection comes in four colors: Altair, an ecru hue with cream highlights; Magellan (shown), a nuanced gray; Pavo, a deep brown; and Draco, a charcoal hue. Circle 17 on inquiry card Enhancements to locking-plier line IRWIN designs its VISE-GRIP Next-Gen Fast Release Locking Pliers with the end user in mind, providing more comfort and control. In addition to reducing the handle span of the plier's open position so as to not be wider than a natural handspan, a user can engage the locking oper- ation one-handed. Other enhancements include recessed texture in its high-grade alloy steel construction for a secure handhold, and a hex key adjusting screw that helps with controlled release and drawing materials together.

Users can use their voice to dim and bright- en lights, control smart home devices, check weather and more. Pair the Decora Voice Dimmer—which can replace any standard light switch with a neutral wire—with the My Leviton app and Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices for voice and app control, sched- uling and lighting scenes. The dimmer is expected to become available mid-2019. Circle 14 on inquiry card PRODUCTS 56 February 2019 QualifiedRemodeler.com
