Self-propelled lift is designed for general overhead work
The Model 20DVL AXXESSOR driveable vertical personnel lift is designed for all types of overhead work. The new personnel lift has a 19-ft, 6-in. platform height, 350-lb. platform capacity and is only 29½-in. wide so it can be driven through standard doors. In a stowed configuration, the lift can be driven at 2.5 mph, with the power to climb grades as steep as 20%, or at 0.6 mph while elevated to full height. Designed for slab operation in construction and maintenance, the rugged lift uses maintenance-free deep cycle batteries, with a built-in, automatic charger with a short five-hour recharge capability and direct electric drive for long battery duty cycles.

Insert makes raceway installation a snap
Dubbed the “Potato Chip,” this insert fits into the tee fittings of two-compartment raceways to provide independent pathways for electrical wiring and data/communication cabling. It allows contractors to install a two-channel raceway as a vertical drop with the smaller (power) channel on either the right or left. Because it is reversible, the insert accommodates either configuration, enabling wires and cables to be easily fed into a horizontal perimeter raceway. The raceway is included with tee fittings of two compartment raceways, including the manufacturer's 5400, 5500 and 2300 and Eclipse Series Raceway Systems. The Wiremold Co.

Fire stop fills the gap with a consistent thickness
The Metraflex MetraSeal 120 is a fast, permanent, fireproof, waterproof, intumescent, mechanical seal that works as a fire stop, filling the gap with a consistently verifiable thickness around any steel, copper tubing, and up to 2-in. PVC/CPVC pipe. Unlike caulk, which can take up to 12 days to cure and meet Code, the seal has no curing time, so it meets Code the moment it is installed. UL-listed with up to a two-hour fire-protection rating (one-hour rating on PVC/CPVC), it has an intumescent formulation that causes the seal to swell and form a hard, crust-like barrier when exposed to fire, holding back fire and water and helping to minimize damage. The product can be used where round piping penetrates a round hole in floors and ceilings, as well as foundations. The Metraflex Co.
