Color, texture addition of porcelain veneer OLDCASTLE debuts its latest color/texture introduction of Mirage Porcelain Veneers called Noon. This porcelain veneer collection combines the rustic look of distressed wood and clean lines with durability and colorfastness. Crafted by Italian artisans, the collection comes in four earthy colors: Daylight, Ember, Honey and Charcoal. At less than 9 lbs. per square foot, the units measure 4-in. wide by 18-in. long (nominal) and thicknesses ranging from 0.3 to 0.6 in. that fit interior and exterior applications. Circle 34 on inquiry card Floor boxes in multiple configurations, finishes The LEVITON Pop-Up Floor Boxes satisfy a wide range of electrical needs with multiple configurations and four designer finishes. Receptacles include Leviton wiring devices prewired to a terminal block for simplified wiring access and installation, and a side latch open/close mechanism eliminates issues associat- ed with traditional center latches. Each floor box features a low profile, so it recesses into the floor—working with tile, stone, wood, laminate, carpet, vinyl and concrete flooring materials—with minimal exposure above the finished floor. Circle 33 on inquiry card Smart kitchen center controls ventilation, whole home GE APPLIANCES unveils its high-tech Kitchen Hub, which places cooking resources and connects IoT devices into one centralized command center. Featuring a 27-in. smart touch screen with access to forward- facing and overhead cameras, access to popular apps for recipes and more, as well as voice-command capa- bilities with Google Assistant, the appliance also boasts a four-speed, adjustable 600-cfm ventilation system that complies with UL standards for above cooktops and ranges. An "air curtain" within the product protects the screen and cameras from heat, steam and grease. Circle 32 on inquiry card Ductless heat pump meets single-zone needs The DIY ductless mini-split heat pump from MRCOOL is designed for relatively simple, quick installation. Available in sizes up to 36K, the heating and cooling system meets a variety of single-zone needs, such as sun rooms, garages, shops or interior areas poorly serviced by an existing central air system. This heat pump model utilizes factory-sealed, pre-charged refrig- erant lines, allowing for installation without industry- specific tools. Accessories include a LineGuard exterior line cover, wall-mounting brackets and base pad. Circle 35 on inquiry card Vertical surface adhesive solution BOSTIK aims to decrease the installation time for verti- cal applications with its Grip N Grab adhesive. Designed for interior and exterior projects, the advanced hybrid polymer technology "grabs" heavy materials quickly, reduces time and the amount of bracing needed, and pro- vides a strong bond to porous and nonporous substrates— including wood, natural stone, ceramic, metal, gypsum and more. The adhesive is water-, frost- and heat-resistant from temperatures of 0 F to 200 F; solvent free; and can be used on damp or wet surfaces.
