Hand Shower

The Alsons brand IN2ITION hand shower/showerhead system combines a traditional hand-held shower with five spray settings, and a fixed showerhead with an extra wide spray.

Pest Control

The ThermaPure process of pest control from E-Therm is a fast, non-chemical, non-toxic cure to bedbug infestations, without residue, odor or the need for replacing furnishings, claims the company. The process uses superheated, dehumidified air to eliminate insect infestations as well as disinfect, decontaminate and dry out buildings in much the same way heat is used to pasteurize milk and kill bacteria in wine.

When the TV is on, the picture projects through the beam splitter glass. Circle 105

Curved Shower Rod

The Curved Rod from Unique Bath offers guests increased comfort by creating additional elbow room in the shower. The oval design of the rod keeps it locked into the mounting brackets so there's no spinning or bowing. Finishes include bright stainless, satin nickel, PVD brass or power coated white. Circle 116

Access Control System

Synergistics, Inc. introduces Presidio, an advanced, multi-featured access control system that is completely web-based and requires no locally installed software. It can be integrated with various industry access control system hardware controllers.
