Product Extra: New for the Industry
GAF-Elk. Designed after popular Camelot Lifetime Designer Shingles, new Camelot 30 Designer Shingles offer dimensional appeal, a range of color blends, and a luxury look at a cost only slightly higher than standard architectural shingles. Camelot 30 shingles incorporate Advanced Protection technology, reducing fillers in the manufacturing process. The shingles pass ASTM tests for 110 and 150 mph winds, and come with a 30-year limited transferrable warranty. Five colors are available, and all feature StainGuard protection to resist algae stains. 877.423.7663. www.gaf.com.
Noritz. In addition to heating water on demand, the NR83-DVC tankless water heater offers lower emissions, reduced electrical consumption, and easier recyclability later on. The new design features reduced amounts of hexad chrome in the coating of the exterior and burner case; reduced levels of lead in the water-flow servomotor, lighting protector, and circuit board; reduced cadmium in the inlet/outlet bracket; and reduced consumption of standby electricity. With flow rates from 0.5 gallons per minute (gpm) to 8.3 gpm, the NR83-DVC is designed specifically for one-bathroom homes in the Northeast, Midwest, and Canada, as well as two-bathroom homes in the Southeast and Southwest. Other features include a compact design, commercial-grade heat exchanger, adjustable concentric venting, and a programmable remote controller. 866.766.7489. www.noritz.com.
TouchSensor Technologies. The LevelGuard Home Sump Pump Control uses solid-state Field-Effect technology to detect the presence of water in residential sump pits, without making direct contact with the fluid. The LevelGuard control is used to turn residential sump pumps on and off with more reliable performance than mechanical float switches. The technology’s low-power electric field detects the presence of conductive fluids, such as water, determines its state, and activates the pump as needed. LevelGuard products are ideal for sump, lift station, underground vault, wet well, and storm water fluid level management applications. 877.342.3261. www.levelguardproducts.com.
