Product Spotlight
Increase Efficiency and Improve Safety with the Wood's Powr-Grip Premium MRT4 Vacuum Lifter

The Premium MRT4 vacuum lifter now comes equipped with a Premium Dual Vacuum System (DVS). This DVS features two completely independent vacuum circuits, allowing the lifter to maintain the vacuum level for one circuit even if an unexpected vacuum loss occurs in the other one. It is designed to reduce the risk of falling loads, which could result from breakage or other accidents that compromise one area of the vacuum system. New digital vacuum switches enable the vacuum pump and vacuum level warning devices to operate independently of each other, eliminating annoying alarm distraction during routine cycling of the vacuum pump. Push-button controls are positioned at the operator's fingertips for convenience, ease of operation, stability and enhanced control.

Contract glazier: JAJ Construction
Window manufacturer: Universal Window and Door

The $174 million restoration of the Hahne & Co. building, a long-time but neglected historic landmark on Broad Street, Newark, New Jersey, calls for rehabilitating and converting the Hahne’s department store into 160 mixed-income housing units, 75,000 square feet of street-level retail space and a new arts and cultural collaboratory center for Rutgers University, “Express Newark.” The retail portion includes a 30,000-square-foot Whole Foods, expected to bring new traffic to Broad Street. For Newark, the project will reactivate one of its most iconic structures as part of a surge in development around it. The development team is preserving key elements of the four-story, 400,000-square-foot building, including the façade, the original signage and the skylight. Read more...
