What's New Cladding unites ancient tradition with performance Ignite by THERMORY USA combines the aesthetic of "yakisugi" or "shou sugi ban" that originated in 18th century Japan with the modern, reliable performance of thermally modified wood. Because the yakisugi process involves charring only the outer exposed layer, long-term durability issues and inconsistencies are common—all of which are eliminated with the company's thermally modified wood. The cladding is made of Scots pine and includes a Class 1 durability rating. Three lengths are available in a 1- by 6-in. grooved profile and in a brushed or "dragon scale" texture. Circle 14 on inquiry card Cabinet drawer with self- locking mechanism DIAMOND CABINETS introduces its Secured Drawer with an installed self-locking mechanism on the inside to secure everything from prescriptions to passports. Featuring advanced sensor biometric technology from The Master Lock Company, users simply pull the drawer and the cabinet will open slightly to reveal a fingerprint sensor and battery. The fingerprint reader can store up to 100 unique fingerprints that can be identified to grant drawer access; a manual key lock is also included. It is avail- able in 18-, 21- and 24-in. wide base drawer cabinets. Circle 16 on inquiry card LED light fixture features tilting technology Create personalized light effects using MODULAR LIGHTING INSTRUMENTS' Rektor lighting fixture, which incorporates tilting technology that allows the LED light to be rotat- ed 360 degrees and adjusted up to 90 degrees upward or downward. Usable on walls or ceilings, the fixture showcases a geometric, minimalist appearance, with no wiring or single technical detail visible. It comes in powder-coated white or black, brushed aluminum, smoked bronze or chrome with a metal housing cover accent. Circle 15 on inquiry card Screw handles truss, rafter, stud connections MITEK designs its ProSeries WSTS Truss/Stud Screw to provide uplift and lat- eral load resistance for truss-to-top-plate, rafter-to-top-plate, top-plate-to-stud and stud-to-bottom-plate connections. Meeting 2015 and 2018 IRC and IBC code requirements, the screw comes in two lengths, offers a reverse screw angle on opposite ends for greater resistance to withdrawal, is fully threaded for installation flexibility, and its Type-17 screw point engages wood quickly for easy starting and driving. A removable installation angle tool, included with the screw package, helps simplify proper installation. Circle 17 on inquiry card Porcelain tile geometric pattern livens floors, walls SOMERTILE livens up any space with its Porto Savona Hex Collection that features a geomet- ric pattern and a satin finish glazed surface.

The collection is available in Aqua, Dandelion Yellow (shown), Niagara Blue, Rose Pink and Black stripe options. Made in Spain, the porcelain tile can be used on floor or wall as well as indoor or outdoor use. Circle 18 on inquiry card PRODUCTS 62 July 2019 QualifiedRemodeler.com
