New Comprehensive Company Catalog from ICE Cable Systems Aims to Help Dealers Make More-Informed Structured Wiring Buying Decisions

Available in webzine and PDF formats at www.icecable.com, the 34-page catalog provides a detailed overview of the company’s products and strong adherence to safety and performance standards including UL, ETL, RoHS and HDBaseT. The design layout is much like a high-end car brochure, making for a compelling and easy-to-digest “read”

Los Angeles, CA – May 20, 2014 – Established in 2004, ICE Cable Systems is a leading manufacturer of premium low-voltage wire and cable products that serves the Audio Video, Alarm and Security, Commercial, Electrical Contracting and Data Center channels. The company has created a full-color 34-page catalog that is available for viewing in webzine and PDF formats at www.icecable.com – with printed versions mailing to all its dealers and distributors now.

”The goal of the catalog is to provide a comprehensive yet easy-to-read piece that will help dealers develop a stronger understanding of the many types of structured wiring, connectors and accessories that we offer – and why our adherence to safety and performance standards such as UL, ETL, RoHS and HDBaseT is so crucial for their businesses. This should help them make better decisions when specifying for the diverse and complex jobs they encounter,” says ICE Cable Systems President Brian Rizzo.

”We wanted to create a catalog that would capture the essence of ICE Cable Systems — the passion that we have for wire & cable — while providing technical information as deep as the reader wants to take it,” describes Rizzo. “To achieve this we are utilizing a layout reminiscent to what you might find in a BMW or Mercedes brochure where the first pages are emotional with cars in action, sensation, speed (all very broad), followed by an exploded view of the engine, and as you get further in it breaks things down to the nitty gritty. Similarly our catalog starts with broad strokes — company philosophy, exploded product pictures and features/benefits — and then gets into the line and specs further in.”

”This catalog should also serve to reinforce ICE Cable System’s position in the marketplace as a premium brand. This is important for us as the view of the structured wiring category is so often that of commodity and shopped on price alone. What dealers need to understand is that bargain-brand pricing often leads to performance problems either out-of-the-gate or down the line,” added Rizzo. “And that’s costly.”

The catalog features sections on:
· Product highlights of the company’s most innovative products
· Product listings (descriptions, colors, compatibilities)
· An in-depth look at cable standards and performance
· Competitors cross reference chart
· How ICE makes premium cable

H-P Products Vroom® Garage Vac Conveniently Tackles Car and Garage Messes

A valuable add-on product for garage door installers and other technology integration specialists, the Vroom Garage Vac comes in flush-mount and surface mount models and installs in 10 minutes or less.

Louisville, OH – May 14, 2014 – H-P Products, a leading manufacturer of central vacuums and custom tubing-related products, is proud to announce the launch of its new Vroom® Garage Vac, the perfect accessory for any modern garage, workshop or condo. Needing only 2.5 square feet of wall space, the Vroom Garage Vac uses a 40-foot expandable hose to remove tough-to-reach dirt and debris from nooks and crannies without requiring users to lug a bulky shop vac or awkward handheld vacuum everywhere they go.

The Vroom Garage Vac comes in two models; a flush-mount model that can be recess mounted inside a 2×4 stud wall for low profile hard wire installations, or a surface mount version that can be installed anywhere. Both models come with five attachment tools to tackle any cleaning job, including: a telescoping wand and floor tool, a two-piece upholstery tool with horsehair, a dashboard brush, and a flexible crevice tool, all of which are integrated  into the tool caddy or a convenient wall mount.

Putting traditional “shop-vacs” to shame, the Vroom® Garage Vac is equipped with a 12-amp motor for maximum suction and performance, and it comes with an industry-best six year warranty. The easily-replaceable five-layer, one-gallon microfiber filtration bag ensures no dust, debris, or allergens are exhausted, significantly improving the air quality where the Garage Vac is used.

“It’s no secret garages and basements tend to be some of the messiest areas in the house with some of the poorest air quality,” said Amy Wesely, H-P Products Marketing Manager. “The Vroom Garage Vac was designed top to bottom for the demands of garages and workshops and it is the best offense against sawdust, car dirt, sand, and all the other debris that invade and accumulate. Plus, it’s great as a low-profile central vacuum system for condos or smaller homes.”

According to the 11th Annual State of the Builder Market Study done jointly by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), 18 percent of all new homes included central vacuum. That is a 64 percent increase since 2007, making it the second-fastest growing technology product category installed in new homes behind only home theater. It is also one of the most profitable categories for installers, frequently earning 50-point margins.

The Garage Vac presents easy upsell opportunities when working with new build projects and clients getting new garage door installations. The Garage Vac’s size and weight (only nine pounds) make it a great buy for workspaces, small businesses, and condos that would benefit from a convenient, space-saving wall-mounted vacuum system.

Wesely continued, “From an installers perspective, there’s never been a better time to sell central vacuum systems. Demand is high, competition is low and there are innovative products like the Garage Vac that are ideal for a multitude of difference customers and projects. ”

Triad Speakers, Inc. adds Cost-Effective Models to Invisible DesignerSeries Line

DesignerSeries is a comprehensive line of high-performing, vibrating-panel sound systems that mount behind-the-wall, making them invisible to the eye. The company has added 3 new entry-level models that range from $500 to $700 MSRP each.

Portland, OR – May 13, 2014 – Triad Speakers, Inc. has added 3 new entry-level models to its DesignerSeries line of behind-the-wall loudspeakers: the DSi-1 ($500 MSRP each), the DSi-2dc dual-channel stereo version ($700 MSRP each) and the higher-performing DSi-3 ($700 MSRP each). The addition of the new models brings the DesignerSeries to 11 models in total. Prior to the DSi-1, MSRP for entry-level was $650.

The DesignerSeries are passive speaker panels comprised of a powder-coated aluminum frame, a rigid aluminum honeycomb core (with paper skin covering) and transducers. All the components — along with the use of a required high-pass cross-over filter (sold separately) — work in concert to create a vibrating element that produces sound waves. The result is a full, warm sound.

All DesignerSeries panels easily mount in between walls studs in typical home construction. The panel’s paper skin provides a high-bond surface for adhesion to plaster, drywall compound, mud skims and veneer. Once covered and painted the panels are invisible to the eye.

According to Triad Speakers’ Marketing Director Paul Teixeira, the 3 new DSi models boast a small footprint (measure 15.75-inches H x 11.8-inches W x 1.6-inches D), thus allowing for even greater installation flexibility.

“Our ability to hit lower price-points on such sophisticated technology gives the Triad dealer more options to place music throughout the house,” says Teixeira.

The DSi-1, DSi-2dc and DSi-3 speakers all carry a 10-year limited warranty. The speakers are shipping now. For more information visit www.triadspeakers.com or call Triad Speakers toll-free at 1.800.666.6316.

D-Tools Furthers Standardization, Fully Integrates Industry Standard J-STD-710 Audio, Video and Control Architectural Drawing Symbols into System Integrator™ Software Platform

J-STD-710 Industry Standard Architectural Drawing Symbols are used to represent all facets of audio, video, and control pre-wire and installation for system designs, blueprints, or schematics, and are consistent with those used by Architects, Builders, Interior Designers, and other Professional trades

D-Tools System Integrator system design and proposal platform now features industry standard shapes for more seamless integration and better communication of project parameters with associated trades.

CONCORD, CA, USA – APRIL 09, 2014 D-Tools Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, today announced full integration of Industry Standard J-STD-710 Audio, Video and Control Architectural Drawing Symbols into the D-Tools System Integrator™ electronic system estimation, design and documentation software platform. Straightforward and easily-recognized, J-STD-710 Audio, Video and Control Architectural Drawing Symbols represent all facets of audio, video, and control pre-wire and installation for system designs, blueprints, or schematics, and are consistent with symbols used by Builders, Architects, Interior Designers, CE Manufacturers, Electronic Systems Contractors, and other professional trades.

“By implementing industry standard J-STD-710 Architectural Drawing Symbols into the D-Tools System Integrator™ platform, electronic systems integrators are provided an effective means for producing professional-looking, easily recognized proposals and design documentation that allows them to compete at a higher level and win more bids,” said Adam Stone, President and Founder of D-Tools. “Not only does standardization provide extensive value to every entity involved in a given installation, it will soon be a service that systems integrators will be required to provide. Essentially, we’re giving integrators a leg-up on their competition by encouraging the early adoption of industry standardized.”

Within the D-Tools System Integrator platform, J-STD-710 implementation consists of nine categories of Autodesk® AutoCAD symbols– including mount type and device options for each symbol–that D-Tools has converted into nine separate Microsoft® Visio stencils. The categories include Audio Video, Communications, Control, Electrical, Electronic Safety and Security, Furnishings, Generic, HVAC, and Vacuum Cleaning Systems.

The new D-Tools J-STD-710 stencils are available now for download and use by authorized System Integrator users, who can access these and other D-Tools stencil updates by clicking on the Download Stencil update link in the SIX toolbar in Visio.

By adopting and utilizing the J-STD-710 Audio, Video and Control Architectural Drawing Symbols into their system design and documentation practices, electronic systems integrators will more clearly communicate with project partners across different trades. Not only does this new standard provide needed clarity and consistency between project partners, it also provides systems integrators an opportunity to compete for bids at a higher level, earn and maintain project access, streamline processes, and boost their bottom line.

More detailed information about the new D-Tools J-STD-710 Audio, Video and Control Architectural Drawing symbols can be found on the D-Tools documentation D-Tools wiki, by visiting the D-Tools Blog Site, by calling 1-866-386-6571 ext. 1, or by emailing info@d-tools.com.
