From the fabricator: Some positivity amidst the worry
By Max Perilstein
Thankfully, this was a quieter week after the adventures of the past few. Honestly, I think we all needed to catch our breath. While unfortunately, there are a few more dominoes to fall, hopefully some stability can start to seep back into our world.
Product Spotlight
Structural shims
New structural shims designed to accommodate large and heavy loads are now available from Grove Products. The micro-grid shims have interlocking textured surfaces to improve shim-to-shim friction when stacked, helping to resist lateral shifting of shims under load.
Great Glazing
University of Minnesota's Folwell Hall
In August 2011, the University of Minnesota's historic Folwell Hall completed three years of extensive renovation that included installation of nearly 500 traditionally styled, high-performance, low-maintenance windows.
